Hi everyone I’m Kelly.
I blog at daydreams of a mum.
I’m @daydreamer_mum on Twitter
Blog on msi is my very first blogging conference. I’m still not sure I’ll dare actually go to be honest – images of being turfed out for not being a ‘proper’ blogger keep flitting through my mind! So this Icebreaker idea I thought was great!!
Share a recent picture of you (if you are an anonymous blog, a drawing is fine)
Describe yourself in three words
Ridiculously absent minded
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
4 years. I started as a therapeutic way to document my new life after domestic abuse. Only in the past year though have I been really trying at it as though people may actually read and joining in with the (brilliant) social side!
What was the inspiration behind your blog name?
I’m legendary for my, they say dozy and gormless, I say daydreamy ways! Daydreams of a mum was born.
(though I am also stuck with the Kelly and the kids name on wordpress as it looks a total faff to change.. .)
What is the best thing to come from your blog so far?
Messages from other women who have been through abuse saying that reading my blog makes them realises it’s not just them who feel this way.
Your most remembered thing from your childhood
Holidays at Butlins with my parents and sister
Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .
I have a fish phobia-dead or alive they turn my stomach. I’ve never eaten fish in my life.
Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?Probably Facebook as it combines my blog and writing about things that are really important to me AND bickering with my family!
What is your happy song?
What is your favourite alcoholic drink
Gin and tonic
What is your favourite cake?
Aaargh not a huge cake fan! I know I know that’s weird, takes an exceptional one to get my attention
What is your favourite takeaway dish?
Chicken jalfrezi , rice AND chips and aand chapatti. No I don’t know why my size 10 jeans no longer fit me either.
Where is your dream holiday destination and why?
Private island in the sunshine!
If you had a magical power, would you want to have and why?
Teleporting – because EVERY day on the school run, small girl laments my lack of one and therefore making her legs ache!
What one weapon would help you survive a zombie apocalypse?
Oh I’d be easy prey, I’m a huge coward!
What would you have on your gravestone?
She was a bit daft but she did try to be nice
You make headline news around the world in 2 years time… but for what reason?
Oh I’m so clumsy, prob some viral vid of my trousers splitting or walking down main road skirt tucked in knickers or getting my hair trapped round a tree branch (all true stories)
If an EMP wiped out all mechanical forms of transport, how would you get to BlogOn?
I’m lucky enough to be close enough to walk. .. It’d take a while but worth it I am sure!
Can’t wait to read everyone else’s. I am the noisiest!
