The Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award Tag

I love blogger tags, but it would seem that I’m awful at taking part whenever I am tagged in them. I’m not even sure why that’s the case, in fact the last time I was tagged I actually wrote out my post, forgot to post it and then had that fear that I’d left it too late and had missed the boat. Anyway, I’m determined to change that!


I was tagged by the lovely Jordanne over at The Life of a Glasgow Girl to take part in the Vincent Ehindero Blogger Award Tag. You can find her post here. Thank you so much for tagging me Jordanne, as much as I’ve been rubbish at taking part in these I really do love and appreciate them, and your tag really made my day.

So, onto the rules of the award;


1. Thank the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.

2. Make a post of the award (with a photo of the logo). 

3. Post the rules

4. Answer the questions asked by the person who tagged you.

5. Ask 5-10 questions of your choice.

6. Nominate 10-30 other bloggers (or more) and notify them.


Jordanne's Questions;


1: If you could tell your 10 year old self one thing, what would it be?


This is actually going to sound rather sad, but I grew up in a home with an alcoholic parent. My ten year old self hadn’t quite made the connection yet between the multiple bottles of wine in the fridge and the way I was sometimes treated, and at the time I thought I was just un-liked or had done something wrong. I would tell my ten year old self that it wasn’t her, she hadn’t done anything wrong and that things would be better in the future, so to just hang on in there.


 2: What is your dream career?


If money was no object and I didn’t have to worry about income at all I would probably do something with animals, in particular unwanted or surrendered dogs. There is something so pure about the love of a dog, and whenever I see photos or videos of dogs people no longer want or can’t care for in shelters waiting for their forever home it’s heart-breaking.


 3: You have just been given £500,000 to spend in a week - What do you spend it on?


I would probably go with a sensible option first and pay off the rest of my mortgage, because that outgoing disappearing would make a huge difference to my monthly costs. We have been thinking about a second car for ages, so I would probably buy a brand new Ranger with all of the extras we want. I’d replace our current car with a Mustang, as we had one in America and loved it. From there I think I’d use the rest of it doing all the bits in the house and garden we’ve been wanting to do, and then the rest would go on a massive spending splurge and get a few holidays booked and paid for. Oh, and as we would love to rescue a dog someday I’d get everything we could possibly need to make a wonderful home for our future addition.


 4: When was the last time you tried a new food? What was it?


It was the peanut butter cookies I posted about earlier! I’ve not been able to get hold of flour, and it was a recipe I found online and adapted a bit.


 5: What's one piece of advice you have been given that has always stayed with you?


That you can’t please everyone all the time, and that’s ok. As long as you do your best to always be kind, that’s the main thing.


 6: What does your ideal pamper night look like?


I like to start off a pamper night with a bath bomb in a hot bath with a facemask. Then its comfy PJs, fresh bed and a film with loads of snacks.


 7: If you were a teacher in high school/secondary school, which subject would you teach?


I’m not really sure… I think I’d want to teach more generic life things, things that everyone needs but (certainly for me) weren’t covered in school. Like, I had no idea how to do my car insurance, write a good CV, budget, or do any of that standard stuff that we have to do as adults. It’s all stuff that I’ve learned along the way but I really feel like at least some of it should have been covered in school.


 8: Would you break the law to save a loved one?


Absolutely. If it’s to save someone I love I’ll gladly accept any consequences that follow.


 9: If you knew today was your last day on earth (and the pandemic + money wasn't an issue) what would you do?


Ooo that’s a difficult one! I think I’d want to spend my last day with Mike, and my close friends. My close friends and I refer to our little group as ‘the family’ because that’s what we are to each other. We are all very close and I love them all dearly, so if I only had one day I’d want to spend it with them.


 10: When was the last time you payed yourself a compliment?


Probably Monday, I managed to do my first run of week two of couch to 5k and only used my inhaler once before I left the house, and didn’t use it while out. As much as I would always carry it with me, it was nice not to be reliant on it, and part of that was down to the work I’ve been doing to improve my fitness. I know it doesn’t sound like a great compliment, but paying myself complements isn’t something I’m very good at.


My questions;

 1. If you could travel anywhere (without Covid, money or anything like that being an issue) where would you go?

2. Do you have a lucky or significant number? If so, what is it and why?

3. If qualifications / wages and such were no issue, what would your dream job be?

4. If you won big on the lottery would you tell anyone and how would you spend it?

5. Are you a morning bird, night owl, or something else?

6. What do you wish you knew before you started blogging?

7. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Is it different to the answer to question 3?

8. What is the biggest life lesson you ever learned, and when did you learn it?

9. Do you have a hobby outside of blogging? What is it?

10. What made you start blogging?

  2. love all your answers, especially the dream career, working with animals would be such a rewarding job I think, giving them love and helping them. I would also love to actually get that money to spend haha I would for sure buy a house and make sure that my family was secure. Also, sorry to hear about your childhood, I definitely relate on some level as my mum had schizophrenia and I often felt like I was un-liked and everything was somehow my fault, it a load to take on as a kid 💛 Ps, well done you for doing the couch to 5k! I've been going back and fourth with myself a lot on wither to start it or not.

    1. Thank you hun! I did enquire with some local dog shelters not long ago to help out on weekends, but they aren't taking anyone on due to Covid, which is a shame.
      It is indeed a lot to take on, especially when you are at an age where you don't really understand it. Not that it makes it easy when you do.
      Thank you! It's really good, so I would really recommend it. If it helps at all, it lets you re-do runs, so if you wanted you could do week 1 a few times over before moving to week 2, so you can very much set your own pace.
