Who is Fiona Blake?

Last night I was thinking .. I would like to get to know MORE about the bloggers I like and I thought I'd start off with myself.  Here are some not very interesting things about me that you may or may not know about me.

Full Name - Fiona Blake

Place of Birth - Derby

Places you've lived - Derby, Bristol, Reading, Newbury

Where do you live now? Newbury, Berkshire

Date of Birth - 27 September 1973 - YES YES YES I am soon to be the big 40!

Special Talent - I can play a lot of tunes on the recorder by request. I used to have lessons when I was 10 but I discovered my talent when my little boy started playing at school. I grabbed it off him and picked up where I left off 30 years ago!

Party trick - I think I can put my legs behind my head. It's been a couple of years since a party warranted such a trick from me. The next party I go to I shall endeavour to try this I promise!

Favourite TV Series - Breaking Bad

Favourite drink - Champagne

Family - Married to Mr Avenue 57 (James) for 13 years, I have 2 boys (Alex is 9 and Oliver is 6) and I have a twin brother who lives in Australia, older brother who lives in Bristol and older sister who lives in LA. My parents live in Dorset.

Some of my favourite photos of my family ...






Sometimes it's not always about the clothes, it's about the person behind the blog!

If you want to do the same I would love to be nosy and read!

Fiona

    1. I made a 40th Wedding Anniversary photo book for my folks 5 years ago and then a 40th Birthday photo book for my sister a couple of years ago. I went through all our old family albums to get these beauties!!

    1. Indeed a small world! Newbury is hardly the centre of the universe though?!!!
      I do love a good shop in Amazingstoke - Festival Place!

    2. Ha ha yeh - I like coming to Newbury for the shops you have that we don't! Plus Elodie likes to see the ducks and swans as we walk along the canal. I ran to Newbury along the canal once from work, right to the A34 then turned around and ran back. 20 miles. In the snow. Awesome idea that was....
