50 questions you should ask and answer.

Samantha from The Samantha Show posted 50 Questions you should ask and answer so answer them I shall :) I always like reading these types of posts from other bloggers because it's nice to get to know the person behind the blog. 

1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called? I'm mostly just called Liane. I have a friend who calls me Lean. I feel that there aren't that many nicknames you can get from Liane. 
2. What books on your shelf are begging to be read? I've just downloaded #Girlboss which I cannot wait to get stuck into. I normally like to have an actual book in my hands and shy away from downloading them but seen as I spend most of my days with Henry in my arms at the moment I figured why not put a few books on my phone and read them during the night feeds :) 
3. How often do you doodle? What do your doodles look like? I am such a doodler! If there is paper in front of me then I doodle. I seem to always end up doodling animals, especially dogs. 
4. What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep? Toss and Turn? Try to get up and do something productive? At the moment I crave sleep! When I don't have a baby though if I can't sleep I normally toss and turn for a bit. Then I end up on my phone. Then I get to that stage where you lie there and think, "If I fall asleep now I'll have 5 hours sleep.." .... "If I fall asleep now I'll have 4 and a half hours sleep." 
5. How many days could you last in solitary confinement? How would you do it? About one! I like company and someone to talk to. 
6. Do you save old greeting cards and letters? Throw them away? I save them all! I have a box with all my old letters from Anthony from when he was in the army and deployed. Special birthday cards I save too. 
7. Who is the biggest pack rat you know? Anthony, definitely. He will not throw anything away. It drives me insane! 
8. When making an entrance in to a party, do you make your presence known? Do you slip in and look for someone you know? Do you sneak in quietly and find a safe spot to roost? I am definitely the one to slip in quietly and then look for someone I know. I don't like to be the centre of attention! 
9. What is your strongest sense? If you had to give one up, which would it be? Definitely not sight. I'm as blind as a bat. As for my strongest one, I'm not sure, maybe my sense of smell?
10. How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror? In the morning, and before I leave the house mostly. 
11. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child? My Mum had me believe that if I shook a lightbulb it would cause me brain damage. I believed her. Looking back now it seems really cruel to tell a kid that! 
12. What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up? Reality tv & chocolate! At the moment I'm having to eat dairy free as Henry is allergic to it and dairy free chocolate just doesn't taste the same. 
13. Who performs the most random acts of kindness out of everyone you know? Probably my Nan. She would give you the shirt off her back. 
14. How often do you read the newspaper? Which paper? Which sections? I occasionally read a paper but not regularly. 
15. Which animals scare you most? Why? Spiders! They terrify me! 
16. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on? I think it depends on who it is with and what it's about. I more likely to avoid it most of the time. 
17. What was the most recent compliment you’ve received and savoured? I don't even know! It's been a while.. Ha! 
18. What is something about yourself that you hope will change, but probably never will? My anxiety. I've suffered with it for as long as I can remember and although I have got it under control more now I don't think it will ever go away completely. 
19. Are you a creature of habit? Explain. I think so. I like routine and to know what's happening next. 
20. Are you high maintenance? Explain. I don't think so but Anthony would probably say otherwise. I'll have to ask him! 
21. When was the last time you really pushed yourself to your physical limits? Probably giving birth four months ago. Thank goodness it was a quick labour! 
22. Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few very close friends? Why? I have a small group of friends. I'm quite shy so I find it difficult to put myself out there. I'm always too worried about what people will think of me. 
23. Are you more inclined to “build your own empire” or unleash the potential of others? I'd love to build my own empire. How cool would that be!? It would be nice to help others too though. I think everyone, especially women, should all build each other up. 
24. What’s a strange occurrence you’ve experienced but have never (or rarely) shared with anyone? I'm not sure. This one requires more thinking.... 
25. What do you think about more than anything else? Probably my children. Even if they're at school/nursery they're always on my mind. 
26. What’s something that amazes you? So many things but honestly, space amazes me. Thinking about what is up there and how expansive it is. Astronomy has always fascinated me. 
27. Do you prefer that people shoot straight with you or temper their words? Why? Shoot straight! 
28. Where’s your favourite place to take an out-of-town guest? We don't have much of anything around these parts! I would love to live somewhere exciting like New York, then I'd have lots to show people. 
29. What’s one thing you’d rather pay someone to do than do yourself? Why? Putting the clean laundry away! I don't mind washing it, drying it or folding it but I hate putting it away. 
30. Do you have a catchphrase? Nope. 
31. What’s your reaction towards people who are outspoken about their beliefs? What conditions cause you to dislike or, conversely, enjoy talking with them? It doesn't bother me too much as long as they are respectful about it and also allow me to put my opinion across too. 
32. How and where do you prefer to study? Back when I was a student (many moons ago) I always studied in the kitchen where there was background noise. I couldn't work in silence. 
33. What position do you sleep in? Normally on my stomach but whilst breastfeeding I'm finding it easier to sleep on my side. I cannot sleep on my back at all. 
34. What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why? I love London. After living in small towns all my life, moving there was amazing and I wish I could have spent longer there. I miss it :( 
35. What are the top three qualities that draw you to someone new? I like someone kind. Someone that can hold their own in a conversation and someone who is good with my kids. 
36. How has your birth order/characteristics of siblings affected you? I am the eldest of three girls. I like to take charge and am a bit of a perfectionist. 
37. If you could eliminate one weakness or limitation in your life, what would it be? Definitely my anxiety. I feel like it holds me back in so many aspects of my life. 
38. If you could restore one broken relationship, which would it be? I use to say my Dad but now I'm not so sure. 
39. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? I wouldn't. As a kid I always wanted to but now I have kids of my own I would be gutted if one of them wanted to change theres! We spent so long picking what we thought was the right name for them! 
40. Do you believe ignorance is bliss? Why or why not? No, I don't think so.
41. What do you consider unforgivable? I'm not sure. What is unforgivable to one person would be nothing to another person. 
42. Have you forgiven yourself for past personal failures? Why or why not? I like to think I have. Everything I've done, whether I've succeeded or failed has made me who I am today. 
43. How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologise? If they can't apologise then they aren't sorry so no forgiveness from me! 
44.Do you hold any convictions that you would be willing to die for? I don't think so.... 
45. To what extent do you trust people? Explain. I don't trust easily. I can thank certain aspects of my childhood for that one! Once I do trust though I tend to do it with 100%.
46. In what area of your life are you immature? My childish side comes out when I'm playing with the kids.. I'm like a big kid myself in that respect! Does that count?! 
47. What was the best news you ever received? When I had my 12 week scan with James and there was a heartbeat. After five miscarriages I was a nervous wreck and refused to even look at the screen until the nurse had confirmed that his heart was beating. 
48. How difficult is it for you to be honest, even when your words may be hurtful or unpopular? I always try to be honest but if it's something that is hurtful then I try to be nice about it! 
49. When did you immediately click with someone you just met? Why? What was the long term result? Conversely, are you close with anyone now that you really disliked at first? I don't tend to click with people immediately. Maybe because I'm so shy? I imagine people may take my shyness the wrong way to begin with.
50. When do you find yourself singing? In the shower or when I'm cleaning. Henry loves my singing.. He's the only one!
