Fifteen Friday: Laura Clempson

Fifteen Friday is a weekly event of the same 15 questions put to different guests on the blog!

Today we have the fabulous Laura Clempson, creator of Cupcakes for Clara! She's a nifty, talented, creative type and I'm so excited that she's here answering the questions!

1. Last movie watched?
 Bridesmaids. I wasn’t too fussed about watching it, but it was on our online rental list and actually surprised me. It was definitely better than I expected.

2. Favourite meal?
Roast dinner – nut cutlets, roast potatoes, veg, gravy… mmm!

3. Mac or PC?
Mac – always!

4. On average, how many books do you read a year?
Do picture books count? If they do it must be thousands. If not, then not nearly as many as I would like.

5. Left or right handed?

6. What would your superpower be?
The ability to add extra hours into the day. I just can’t seem to ever fit everything in, so having a few extra hours here and there would be really helpful.

7. Tea or coffee?
Tea. I don’t drink coffee at all – I always want to, but I don’t really like it. Sorry! I could drink tea all day.

8. What’s your worst habit?
 Getting stroppy when I’m tired. I can’t help it!!

9. Earliest memory?
Being woken up by my mum in the middle of the night & thrown into the bath because my little brother had been sick in my hair. Nice huh?!

10. What noise do you love/hate?
 I love the sound of my two little ones giggling, especially if they’re making each other laugh. I really hate people whispering in my ear. I don’t know why, and not any particular things, just whispering really close gives me the shudders.

11. Favourite season?
Winter. I just adore Christmas & the whole build up to it. Winter is so cosy – chilly walks, hot chocolates, open fires, cuddling up watching films, candle lit baths, roast dinners, Christmas decorations. Oh yes, winter is perfect.  

12. Optimist or pessimist?
 A mixture of the two but probably slightly more pessimist. That’s sad isn’t it? Luckily I have an eternally optimistic husband to balance things out.

13. Last song you listened to?
 Guess I’m a Fool by Hugh Laurie. I’m so excited - we’re going to see Hugh Laurie’s tour in July. Cannot wait!

14. What 3 items would you take with you on a desert island?
 Ooh, that’s a toughie. If it could it include a new-fangled charger that runs on coconuts then my iphone, a notebook, & sun cream.

15. If you could interview anyone from any point in time, who would it be and why?
 Katherine Hepburn. I absolutely adore her. Or maybe James Stewart – but I might faint from excitement! For no particular reason other than it would be amazing to meet them.

Thank you so much for having me!
