Friend Makin’ Mondays – Five Things ….

Another Monday and the first one in February, where is the time disappearing to?

Following a chilled weekend I managed to be more productive today and tick (well half tick!) another February goal off my list. I attended a health check appointment at my Doctors Surgery. It will be interesting to see what the Doctor has to say at the follow up in a few weeks time.

Anyway, now onto FMM ….


If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

– Win the lottery!

2. List five things you love about yourself.

5. Share five places you would like to go on vacation.

– I’d like to go back to the Hotel Silken Puerta America in Madrid, it’s the coolest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Each floor is designed by a different designer, architect or artist including all the corridors and lift areas. The rooftop bar has incredible views and the outdoor bar has day beds to lounge around on and amazing cocktails.

– Jillian Michaels, tough, inspirational trainer. I would love to be trained by her just once!

7. List five bands or artists you’d like to see perform live.
