One of my favourite bloggers and my new blog friend Meg, asked me to participate in this new link up called Asked Away Friday hosted by Penny from The Real Housewife of Caroline County.
Ask Away Friday is a swap of questions between two bloggers with the purpose to feature another blogger on your blog and to get to know each other better by asking and answering questions. I’m thrilled to be doing this with Meg.
Meg is a mom of two, an art teacher, and she has an amazing blog which I know you will love as well. She is very talented and creative and loves DIY which you will notice if you visit her blog.
To see the questions that I asked her and her answers, go to her blog The Patchwork Paisley.
Below are the answers to the questions that she sent me.
1. What are 3 adjectives you would use to describe yourself?
This is hard. Friendly, honest, caring.
2. If you could travel back in time and live in a different era, where would you go?
Probably to the 1700 s but only to be able to wear one of those beautiful ball gowns.
3. Your profile says you live in Ireland! Were you born there? Do you plan to stay there or would you move somewhere else if you could? Where?
I was born in the Netherlands but my parents are originally from Suriname in South America, which used to be a Dutch colony. If it was up to my oldest daughter we would stay here forever but I would like to move again and probably will do so next year. My mother lives in Suriname and I would like to start a few businesses there.
I also think it would be nice to live in the UK or US for a while just to experience how it is to live there.
4. Someone stops you on the street right now and hand over a briefcase with 1 million dollars in it, no strings attached. What would you do with the money?
Well, I would first put it on the bank and then think about it and pray what to do with it. I definitely would like to buy the house that we live in, so my oldest daughter Ixora could always come back here, where she has such great memories. She loves it here and she loves this neighbourhood and one of her best friends lives around the corner and the other has her grandparents living in our street.
There is a lot wrong with the house at the moment so I would have to renovate it and I would maybe make an extension and add a few rooms and a bathtub to the bathroom.
And then I’d probably redecorate it.
I probably would give some money to my family and to church organisations, missions and/or charity organisations.
I would use it for a few business ideas that I have including starting my own kids clothing label, book a holiday to Suriname for the kids and I, to visit my mother and their dad and to finally go to Disney World. I’d love to make a worship cd and get a book published. I guess I’d use it to fulfil a few dreams. Mine, my family’s and some of others.
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
Well, there is a few celebrities that I find quite attractive but nowadays I think I like Channing Tatum the most and Jesse Williams.
6. How would you describe your personal style?
I actually don't really know. I think it is a mix of different things. I would like to say trendy. But I don’t follow a lot of trends really. I do a lot of second hand shopping.
7. Are you superstitious about anything?
No not really. That probably has to do with my faith in God.
8. What is your biggest fear?
Ehm, I’m not sure. I try to put my trust in God for everything and trust that He protects me and my loved ones but I guess my fear is that unexpectedly something bad could still happen.
9. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I’d love to have the super power healing. I’d love to heal as many people as I could. It's so sad when people suffer from illness or even die. Unfortunately, it is completely in the hands of God, even though as Christians there is power in our prayer and through our prayer people can get healed.
But healing happens according to His Sovereign will.
10. What post have you written that you are most proud of? (add the link!)
Designed to be a mum. This is apart from giveaway posts, the most popular post on my blog. I really got inspiration from God while writing it and it is an encouragement for myself as well. I also like The strength of a mother which I wrote when I just got back to blogging again this year so it wasn’t read by many people. Read it here.
Thanks Meg. I must say that I found your questions a little bit difficult but still very unique.I hope that you liked mine.
To my readers: I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me. Thanks for reading along.
Love and blessings,
