Seven secrets about myself: including the one about the knickers…

Seven Secrets about the Behaviour Charts guru (ahem)

I was using the wonderful LoveAllBlogs site to dip in and out of blogs the other day and I came across this great post from Chez Mummy about her Kate Winslet/Gwyneth Paltrow moment where the lovely Mother Venting, From Fun to Mum and More Than a Mum Blog had bestowed upon her a fantabulous award.

The post was a few months ago, and was actually a tagging meme about giving seven secrets about yourself.  I rather liked the idea, and even though I am horribly late (as usual), I thought I would throw my hat into the ring and come up with my seven secrets.  My excuse is I wasn’t even blogging when the meme started….

So here we go…

  1. I am a secret geek. I love CSI, Doctor Who and anything Sci-Fi. I love technology too, but don’t have as much time or money as I would like to explore all of it!
  2. My knicker elastic once went in Marks and Spencers. I was sixteen. It was embarrassing. But at least the knickers had the sense to fail in a shop where there was an easy to hand replacement…
  3. My husband wanted to call our son, Rock. Strangely, I over-ruled that one. Can’t think why.
  4. I find Mr. Bloom on CBeebies strangely alluring. Probably the less said about that one the better…
  5. I am a Take That groupie; I saw them live at Villa Park last year and they are all utterly gorgeous. But I guess another secret is that I do prefer Mark to Gary, and as he is considerably shorter than me that might be a problem.
  6. I am a secret Essex girl – trying to be Cambridge but wishing I was Essex. Secretly I wish I could carry off fake tan and short skirts, but know that if I tried, the whole of Essex would move
  7. I don’t actually know what I am doing with this whole having my own behaviour charts business lark. But hey, who cares, I am loving it!

I am fairly sure that when you do a meme you are meant to tag some fellow bloggers; I wasn’t going to initially, but have been informed that I may as well tag away…so here goes.

I am tagging just the three; @autismmumma, as she was intrigued to see what my secrets were last night when I tweeted about it, @mumsbizclubcamb and finally @coombemill. Apologies if anyone has already done this, and feel free to ignore me, as I am sure you are all very busy people!

What are your secrets? Do let me know in the comments below – particularly if they involve pants like mine do!

KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!

I have secretly wanted to be a children's storybook illustrator. I have a TV viewer thing, not for Mr. Bloom (have moved on from him), Sean Bean and could listen to his television voice overs indefinitely. I have many more secrets though none humorously involve knickers or brassieres ;)

Haha love the knickers one! Not sure if I have a secret about myself but everyone is amused by the fact on my Cybher Meet & Greet post about my ears not being real as I had plastic surgery when I was 5.
