Monday means Show & Tell from From Mrs to Mama
Show & Tell: The if Game

1. If you could relive any memory in your life, tell us what it would be, and what/if anything you would change about it? 
Our wedding day. I often say that I wish we could get married all over again, every year! And I am serious about renewing our vows every 10 years. It was such a special day, almost the start of a new life and incredible journey with my ‘other half’ and it went by so quickly. I have to be honest that I wouldn’t change anything about it – it was just so magically perfect for us.

2. If you could be any celebrity or well-known person, show us who you would be.

Many people are not going to agree with me but I love this woman! I think she is the definition of class and style. She has climbed the ladder of success with grace and dignity and she has done so well as a wife, mother, performer, designer and business woman. yes, she doesn’t smile much but she seems content and possibly a little shy. She has a great big family, a gorgeous husband, a successful music career, a dominating range of clothing, a wardrobe to die for and a body that would make any woman jealous.

3. If you won the lottery, tell us would you take the lump sum or take the money overtime, would you continue working or quit right away, would you reveal who you are, and what are some of the first things you would spend with your money?
I would definitely take the money over time – I am a spender and I would hate to let it run out or blow it stupidly! I need someone to be responsible and help guide my finances. 

I am a stay-at-home mom so I would like to still stay at home but get involved in hobbies or charities that could keep me busy and something I love doing.

I would not want to be revealed from a security point of view. There could be nothing worse than the world knowing how much you have won and for criminals to know where to find you – my life would be in constant threat. I would also not like my community to know and possibly want to treat me differently.

I would split it up into percentages and then give a percentage to a charity close to my heart, to family and friends that need the money, invest and maybe spend a bit on a good holiday and to pay for the building of our house. 

4. If you could live anywhere, show us where it would be and tell us why.

I know it doesn’t look like much… yet! But this is the piece of land we are busy building our dream home on. And this is exactly where I want to live – it is a sunny, happy town, in a secure and friendly estate and has been planned accordingly to what we want as a couple and family. I absolutely cannot wait to move in!
Watch this space!

5. If you could have one magic power, what would be and what would you do with it?
I would want to be able to be invisible. Haha! I am quite a nosy person and I often wish I was a fly on a wall. I also have small insecurities and love to please so I would love to hear what others think of me (when I’m not around) whether positive or negative. 

Come along and play the if game
