It was the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I (am I showing my age?) That had the famous song “Getting To Know You.” This song has provided some inspiration for today’s blog, I was thinking it would be good if my blog readers had more information about me the Lifestyle Lady. I have answered a question for every year for my life So lets dig in..
1. Do you have kids? Yes! I’m lucky to be a Mummy L to my wonderful almost 21 month year old daughter Rose.
2. Whats you middle name? Victoria, not that interesting and not that common. Name of a Queen, so I am keeping good company!
3. When did you cry last? This morning, I was trying to find a rendition of “Getting to know you,” my daughter came sat on my lap and we watched several of the key songs in all the old musicals, Hello Dolly, My Fair Lady, King and I and many more. It reminded me of what I used to do with my Grandpa, it was very nostalgic and bitter-sweet. I was also so proud that Little L looks like she may share my passion for the classics Yay!
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Hell yeah. I hope I’m a good friend.
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? It’s my middle name.

8. Do you believe in happy endings? Yes you have to work at it, but generally yes.
