Pretty Much Me…
I have no middle name. Just Laura-Ann ( Not Laura.. but I get that a lot).
I have been on Instagram for a few years now.. My blog is a little younger… I was so nervous to start it but I’m so glad I finally did. If you’re considering starting your own blog, I urge you to put yourself out there and go for it, try not to worry what others think. It’s opened up a completely different world for me and I am so thankful for all the opportunities that have come from it. Just do it.
I am hitting the big 3-0 this month ( 28th November). I was married at the ripe young age of 24 ( true love eh? ) . I had Bertie aged 27 and George at 29. My husband Chris and I went to school together and got engaged after four years.. We got married 9 months after that.
I work part-time as an estate agent here in Northern Ireland… Currently I’m on maternity, but will be returning on a 3 day week in February. It’s a lovely job helping people and I genuinely don’t know why people don’t like us… We are nice.. promise.
I have always loved being creative. I joined the WI ( Woman institute ) when I was 11 years old , just so I could go on their craft weekends. It was usually me and a lot of grannies, but I loved it. Teaparty’s, flower arranging and unlimited cakes.. What’s not to love?
Despite my pretty Instagram lifestyle I have a serious liking for Hip hop & R’N’B.. Totally gansta over here!! Think Jay-Z and Kayne.. Who would have thought?
My two boys were born by C section. Bertie was emergency and George was elective. I can confirm it’s not the easy way out. They are my whole world and you can read more about raising boys here.
I send at least 5 emails to myself every day. I have an awful memory and I’m terrified of forgetting things or events so emails is my choice of reminder.
I cannot stand mushrooms, it could even be a phobia!The look, the smell, ill not even mention the taste.. yuck!
I always smile for pictures, despite having ‘prominent teeth’ as a child ( I’m not saying the B-T word .. it still haunts me ) .A brace pushed them back in, but they are still pretty big.
I cannot pout , I look like I’ve been stung by a wasp… So it’s always a cheeser of a smile from me.
I get really travel sick – Planes, cars, boats trains…. I always carry a little bag with me!
I met Kate Middleton ( my idol) at a garden party in 2016. She asked me my name and I was so gobsmacked I couldn’t speak. I had planned to say many many things, but nothing would come out. She then complimented my dress and moved on. I continue to believe if I had have been able to speak we would have become extremely close friends 😉
I turn into a pumpkin past 10pm… all my friends know never to contact me after 10pm… I’m fast asleep, even on weekends ( rock and roll!! )
