  1. I love these. They are so much fun to write and read. I think it is brilliant that your favourite smell is Flash Bathroom Cleaner. Ha ha! And I love that picture of Aidan at his first hurling match. So cute! Thanks for mentioning me lovely lady. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

  2. I love this post and finding out a little more about you. I love the film Calamity Jane too and I would have given exactly the same answer to question 25 as you too! Great post 🙂

    1. They are a few tricky ones but I went with the first thing that came to ming – probably not my cleverest move haha.. Yeah I am a little bit of an ink addicted.. Trust me if you smell it you will understand!

  3. I loved this post Ellen. Some of the answer made me giggle like the smell of Flash makes you happy. Have you seen those adult colouring in books that have over social media, you should get one. I like the title of your autobiography! I have been tagged to do this so will need to put a side 3 hours, haha!

    1. Trust me once you smell the Flash you will know what I mean 😉 Yes I need one of those in my life – not that A will prob just rip it! I tried to just write the first thing I thought or I would have been there all night haha.. can’t wait to read yours 🙂 xxx
