Is there such a thing as TMI? Here goes – TMI Meme

I’m not sure whether or not to be thankful or run for cover by the fact that I’ve been tagged by +Liz Tumbridge (Hart of the Munchkin Patch) and Sarah (My Beautiful Three) in this meme.  As the title suggests they want me to share TMI by answering some questions.
Is there actually such a thing as TMI?  I write a blog, I over share on a daily basis anyway so the chances are you have probably already heard these answers at some point over the almost three years I’ve been writing this blog.
Here goes:
1. What are you wearing?
Currently, while snuggled on the sofa I’m wearing a black tunic top with bat wing sleeves and jewels on the top,  teamed Boot cut jeans adorned with sparkly beads all over.  These are pre-children jeans, not at all practical with the kids as they are scratchy when they sit on my lap – however they fit!! THEY FIT! I’ve lost over a stone and a half recently and am rediscovering clothes which fit again.
2. Ever been in love?
Well of course, I’m married after all! 
I’ve thought I have been in love before getting together with Paul at the age of 21, infact I was engaged before Paul and I got together – to his best friend…..maybe that’s a whole new post there – he was even our bestman at our wedding.
3. Ever had a terrible break-up?
I usually got in there first as I’m mean like that, but of course you don’t get to the age of 34 without being broken hearted a few times but I was young so always bounced back.
4. How tall are you?
5ft 2 inches – well I always was however the scales in Tesco seem to think I’ve shrunk an inch sadly.
5. How much do you weigh?
11 stone 4.5pounds.  Back in January I was 12 stone 10, I’ve upped my exercise and cut out the rubbish foods some of the rubbish foods.
6.  Any Tattoos?
Yes, a single red rose on my right shoulder.  Rose was my Nan’s name and she meant a lot to me.  I am currently deciding on my new one but it’s taking a while to choose – I want something with both children’s names on.
 7. Any piercings?
I’ve my ears pierced twice although I rarely wear earrings these days as Harry pulls them.  I had the top of my ear pierced, along with my nose and my belly button – long since removed.
8. OTP?
OK, I’m 34 and obviously not down with the kids anymore as I’ve no idea what that is.
9. Favourite show?
I’m an Eastenders girl, it’s set up on series link so I don’t miss it, I also love Two Broke Girls.
