Mona's Meme............

James (Rants, Raves & Random Thoughts) did this meme recently and left it open for anyone who wanted to have a go - so here goes.

Mona's Meme

1. At what age do you wish tomarry?
A: I married at 24 but I would have liked to have married earlier – at 14 when I met MWM.

2. If the end was near and you had the chance, what would you say to your beloved?

4. Where is the place that you want to go the most?

7. What are you most afraid to lose?
A : My love.

8. If you won £1 million, what would you do?
A: Make sure all my family have enough for their needs, then my friends, then I’d travel the world.

9. If someone broke your hand, what would you do?
A: Manage until it mended.

10. List 3 good points of the person who tagged you.
A: James didn’t tag me he just proferred the baton but I’d say 1. He’s a fantastic author 2. He seems like a thoroughly nice person and 3. He obviously loves his family.

11. How would you feel if your parents stopped giving you cash to spend?
A: They don’t give me money now, it’s my turn to repay.

12. Describe your fantasized-life.
A: I would have enough money to be able to give up work, help my family financially and travel the world with my man.

13. What is your ambition?
A: To retire and enjoy the rest of my life.

14. What is the one thing that would make you think someone is bad?
A: Anyone who hurts a child is not just bad they’re evil and do not deserve to be on this Earth.

15. What are the most important things in your life?
A: My family.

16. Are you a shopaholic or not?
A: Definitely!

17. If you had the chance, which part of your character would you like to change?

18. Do you believe in yourself?
A: Yes now, but it wasn’t always the case.

19. Honestly, do you think life is fair?
A: What’s fair? Life is a series of ups and downs, which is how it should be. If you didn’t have downs you wouldn’t recognise an up would you?

20. Are you an optimist or pessimist?
A: An optimist most of the time.

I’m not going to tag anyone but if you’d like to take up the baton please feel free. If you choose to play, please let me know so I can read your answers.

I just read this meme on another blog - it's an interesting one. Would you really get married at 14?

Julia Phillips Smith said...

I might put this on my backlog of memes. I'll let you know whenever I do it.

It's so great that you and your husband have been able to enjoy life together for so long. A true blessing. It was probably hard to wait that ten years to marry - but likely a wise decision.

Akelamalu said...

Meme's are a great way of telling more about yourself aren't they Ciara?

I would have married MWM at 14 if it had been allowed Citizen, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to be with him forever. :)

It is Buff and I am taking care of him. :)

I count myself very lucky in love Marianne :)

Thanks Odat x

You know all about that Bee xx

I'll look forward to reading your answers Julia.

Cath said...

That's a great meme with some great answers.

I agree 100% with the want to retire bit. And the definition of a bad person.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Well done. I got married at 24 too, and would love to have enough money to travel the world and make a difference in my families lives.

I would also want that cancer cure, I'm sure we all would it is the most terrifying thing isn't it. :(

Akelamalu said...

Retirement can't come quick enough for me Cath!

Maybe one day we'll all get our wish on the cure for cancer Jo, fingers crossed. x
