Eek! BlogOn Toys is nearly here! This is my second BlogOn, and I really can’t wait! My first being BlogOnX in May 2018 and I have to say, I am really looking forward to BlogOn Toys! Now that I know what to expect.
Honestly, If this is your first BlogOn, do not fear! There are so many friendly faces, 199, to be exact! There is always someone around to talk to. You will see people that you have only seen on social media or have only seen by reading their blogs. It is bazaar actually meeting them! Meeting some of the big names in the blogging world, and being totally ‘star struck’ only for them to come and chat with you! Amazing!
I can guarantee that you will have a giggle, learn loads, make connections with brands and other bloggers. And, If thats not good enough for you, you should see the goodie bags! OMG! They’re out of this world! Crammed full of goodies. I was like a kid in a candy store!
So, let me introduce myself with the questions asked my the BlogOn team….
I’m Claire Rocks and I’m the blogger over at This Mummy Rocks. I am a Mum of 5 boys, 6 if you include my husband. I’m literally living in a man’s world!
Here’s a recent mug shot of me for identity purposes!
What is the best thing about blogging?
For me, the best thing about blogging is knowing that I could be helping another mummy out there. Sharing my life stories and hints and tips on being a mum of boys and being self employed.
What was your dream job when you were growing up?
When I was younger, I always wanted to be a teacher. Those plans soon got scrapped when I was extremely ill with anorexia and I when recovering I fell pregnant with my eldest son at 17. I am now a childminder, which is the next best thing!
What is your lucky number?
My lucky number is 7. For the 7 men in my life, my husband, 5 boys and my dad!
What is your favourite season?
My favourite season has to be Autumn without a doubt, closely followed by Summer.
If you had to choose one what would your favourite dish from the Chinese be?
Oh, it has to be either sweet and sour chicken with boiled rice OR chicken curry with boiled rice. It depends where i’m getting it from!
What is your useless talent?
Oh dear lord, no, you really want me to answer that?!
If you could keep any animal as a pet what would you choose?
Hmm, I have to admit, i’m not an animal lover. Sorry!
Which one meal would you eat forever? (If you had to choose one!)
A Christmas Dinner with All the trimmings!
What is the last thing you check before you lock your front door?
Do a head count and a lot of shouting instructions to my family. The joys of large family life.
If you won £50,000 what would be the first thing you would buy?
I would take my boys travelling around the world so they can see theres more to life than their bedrooms and games consoles
What is your favourite social media channel?
I have to say, Instagram.
Tell us more about your best ever holiday
I used to go to Ibiza every Summer with my parents from the age of 4 to 24. I can’t possibly choose the best, as they were all amazing!
Name one cake you rock at baking
I can make a mean caramel cake
Which session are you most looking forward to?
I’m interested in getting into videos so Sophie Mei Lan Hale’s session and Alex Winter’s session.
What is your favourite book ever?
I love reading, I’ve read so many, probably one by Sophie Kinsella
Which special event is your favourite? (Halloween, Christmas etc)
Most defiantly Christmas, without a doubt!
If the internet vanished right now how would you share your message or life story without a blog?
I’d write a book, which I’d love to do in the future.
I will look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 16th September 2018!
