oh my blog 

This month, we’re meeting Gemma from Life Is Knutts.
  1. Tell us about yourself and your blog.
Hi! My name is Gemma and I am a mum to 3 boys aged 8, 7 and 2.5. I live in leafy Surrey and I write a load of random ramble (also known as a blog) called, Life is Knutts. It's a lighthearted blog (I really try not to take life too seriously) and my blog is full of amusing parenting anecdotes, baking and cocktail recipes (I am extremely partial to a spot of Gin) and write ups about days out/holidays we have.

  1. What is your current relationship status?
I am married. Though if my husband keeps leaving his pants on the bathroom floor for me to pick up, that status may change.

  1. Do you ever celebrate Valentine's’ Day?
No. I am so boring but I really do think it's another commercialised marketing scam created to get us to spend more money on shite we don't need or want. I think it's nice if you're dating maybe or trying to 'woo' someone (god, I sounded all Shakespearean then didn't I?!) but I am not a fan myself.

  1. It’s your first date! Where do you go?
Pizza Express. That is where my now husband took me for the first time and we split the bill. So romantic.

  1. What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
Erm...oh god. Now you're asking. My husband doesn't do romance, or surprises. He did get me a DVD box set of the Godfather for my 30th birthday. I know that doesn't sound at all romantic, Italian gangsters leaving horse heads in people's beds, but we watched the film on Honeymoon in Iceland when we got snowed in for a day and he decided to get the DVD for me for my birthday as a memento. Kind of romantic I guess...

  1. What is your favourite romantic film? Cheesier the better.
Oh crikey. Another one I'm not sure of because I hardly get to watch Rom-coms. I would probably go with Bridget Jones's Diary. A great mix of funny and romance.

  1. Spill the beans! Who’s your celebrity crush?
Haha! Can I make a list? If I had to pick just one it would be Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones. I love the guy. Tom Hardy is a VERY close second. Something about rough and ready men I think *starts daydreaming*...

  1. Flowers are pretty popular at this time of year. Do you like receiving them or do they really not float your boat?
I like getting flowers but I do prefer a plant. Something I can keep (or try to keep) for a bit longer. Orchids and succulents are my favourites.

  1. Do you have children? Do you want any (or any more)?
I have 3 little darlings - all boys. They're aged 8, 7 and 2.5. I love them all dearly but I absolutely don't want anymore. My sanity couldn't take it.

  1. What would be (or was) your choice of song for your first dance at your wedding?
A bit of an odd one but we had Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses as our first dance. We are huge Guns and Roses fans and my husband plays guitar so we had a friend play Guitar Hero (whilst dressed as Slash - we had no idea he was going to do that!) on a big screen as we danced. It was memorable and made everyone laugh. Our friend was such a good sport.

  1. Do you have any plans yet for Valentine’s Day 2017?
Nope. It will just be a normal day for us. I shall be zooming the kids about to school and after school clubs and my husband will get in from work, wait for his dinner and then fall asleep on the sofa about 9pm. Who said romance was dead?

  1. Raw oysters are pretty famous for being an aphrodisiac. Have you ever tried them?
Oh good lord no. I haven't ever had one but the mere thought of sticking one of those things in my mouth makes me retch. I am not a huge shellfish fan really apart from prawns and lobster.

  1. Imagining money's no object, where would you go for a romantic getaway?
Another tough one. I would say Norway. I would love to do a road trip over there, ending in Tromso which is a wonderful place to see the Northern Lights. Me and my husband love the outdoors and cold places.

  1. What’s the best Valentine’s gift you’ve ever received?
Oh crikey. Probably a handmade card from my children saying they love me. Always one to melt the heart that isn't it.

  1. Finally, what is the number one most important thing you value in a relationship?
Friendship. I love that after a crappy day with the kids, I am lucky enough to have a husband come home to us, give me a hug and unload the burdens of the day onto. I never take it for granted that I have a loving husband and a happy (mostly) little family. We have our ups and downs as all families do, but ultimately we all love each other and that's what life's all about.
