Who is Suburban Mum?

I love a blogger tag, especially one where you can read and find out a bit more about the person. Becci from The Unnatural Mother tagged me in this as it’s been sitting in my drafts for a while (sorry!) but here are my answers below.

When was the last time you cried?
Probably about a month ago? I don’t know what it is but since being a mum I get emotional really easily!

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I consider myself to be kind, caring and thoughtful so I would like to think so.

Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Never! (yes I do, but now its a lot less than before I had the boys)

What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their eyes

Scary movie or happy endings?
Having just seen a scary movie last weekend (we saw A Quiet Place – it’s brilliant so go see it!) I would still choose a happy ending over a scary movie. (have I just contradicted myself there?)

Favourite smells?
Clean laundry, fresh flowers and Princess by Vera Wang perfume as it reminds me of our wedding day.


What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Hong Kong (12-hour flight away) but it’s kinda like a second home to me as I have family there. Does that count?

Other than that…probably New York back in 2004.

View of Hong Kong from the Peak, 2005!
Mr H and I back on 2004 in New York. How YOUNG do we look?

Do you have any special talents?
Errr…does remembering useless information like other people’s registration numbers count?

Where were you born?

What are your hobbies?
Other than blogging, which is probably more of a second job now than a hobby I like crafting or reading. The latter I don’t really do much of at the minute.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A journalist! I now work amongst them instead!

How many countries have you been to?
8 I think?

What was your favourite/worst subject in School?
My favourite was Art, closely followed by English. Worst – Geography and Science!

What is your favourite drink?
Earl Grey, Diet Coke or Gin


What would you (or have you) name your children?
E was almost “Dylan” and M I toyed with the idea of “Noah” which apparently Mr H now has no recollection of!

If we had a girl we had “Robyn” and “Wren” the first time around and “Erin” the second time around.

Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?
I don’t watch that many but I do enjoy Charlotte Louise Taylor, Katie Ellison from Mummy, Daddy, Me and Emma from Brummy Mummy of 2.

How many boyfriends have you had?

Favourite memory from childhood?
My dad taking me, my brother and sister to either McDonalds or Pizza Hut!

How would you describe your fashion sense?
I have zero-fashion sense and around 90% of my wardrobe is black/navy. I wear what’s comfy and fits.

Tell us one of your bad habits!
I like to hide mess away when I don’t have time to sort through it properly. I’ll hide things in drawers/cupboard, you name it so on the face of it things are tidy – until you have to open a drawer…

I also procrastinate A LOT! It’s definitely something I need to work on.

I now tag Louise, Tracey, Rachel, Zara, Stacey, Becky, Sarah and Rebecca to answer these questions so we can find out a bit more about them too.
