All about the Blogger Michelle from Shell Louise

I am participating in  the All About The Blogger Linky where some bloggers decided to get to know each other better by sharing some guest posts .   I am hoping that soon  you too can get to know other bloggers by reading about them here.   Here are some things you might not know about Michelle  who has a blog about family and lifestyle.   Please sit back with a lovely cup of tea and  read all about her and head out to her blog for more information.

Hi. I’m Michelle but everyone calls me Shell, which is why I picked Shell Louise for my blog name. I started my blog so the children would be able to look back on things we’d done as they grew up.   Now they’re getting older they’re not as eager to be photographed and featured so I now post lots of Slimming World recipes, book reviews, posts about our progress in the garden and lots of other things; it’s all a bit of a mishmash if I’m honest!

Q1. How would your best friend describe you? (not sure then ask them)

She would probably say I was a bit mad (as in crazy, not angry!) but I say the same about her and we both know I’m the one that’s right!

Q2. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Finally earning enough each month to enable me to carry on working from home and not having to try and find a ‘proper’ job 😊

Q3. If you could change anything about blogging, what would it be?

I can’t think of anything!

Q4. If you were invited to a Blogger’s Cocktail Party, which three bloggers would you invite and why?

I’d invite Kim from Northumberland Mam because our youngest girls are close in age and very much alike. I think we’d get on really in real life.
Jaime from The Oliver’s Madhouse. We met a few years ago and she’s a really lovely, genuine person.
My third guest would be Aby from You Baby, Me Mummy. I think she’s great with all the help she gives other bloggers and from watching her live on Facebook she seems lovely and lots of fun.

Q5. What is the best blogging tip you have been given?

Stop worrying about numbers all the time. Write because you want to, not to get higher numbers.

Q6. When you aren’t blogging, where is your favourite place to visit for a day out?

The seaside. We have fish and chips on the beach followed by hot doughnuts. Ant and I then sit and relax while the girls go off crab hunting and burying each other in the sand.

Q7. Tell us about your guilty pleasure. It could be food, drink, a TV programme or your favourite band.

My guilty pleasure would have to be Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. I know it’s packed full of calories which is why it makes me feel guilty but it’s so good, I tell myself I don’t care!

Q8. If you knew you were going to be marooned on a desert island and could take 3 luxury items with you, what would they be?

Books, chocolate and plenty of coffee!

Q9. What was the last good book you read?

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. It had an OMG ending that I did not see coming!

Q10. Describe your perfect date night?

First, we’d send the children to stay with family then we’d go see a movie at the most adorable little cinema in Woodhall Spa called The Kinema In The Woods. We’d go home and my wonderful husband would cook us a delicious meal (he’s a great cook and loves it more than he would if we went out to eat) and there’s be Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for dessert!
