Spring 2017 Q&A

Time for another Q&A! Check out my previous one back in December, by clicking here. Thanks to all who were kind enough to provide me with some questions, I have linked to you all below the questions.

What's Baker's favourite toy?
Asked by Fiona 
It changes pretty often, to be honest, every week or two he switches alliances. He has a heap load of toys though and is pretty good for playing with a vast majority of them. I guess right now (11th Feb) is the worst it's been with a toy obsession and it's not technically a dog toy, but a child's 'laughing' Dale Tsum thingy.

What would you do if you didn't blog?
Asked by Fiona
You know, I literally have no idea! It's been almost 9 years or something since I first started and this blog will turn 6 in November. It's such a big part of my life and I spend so much time on it that I'd be lost without it haha. Seriously, if I got paid minimum wage for the hours I work on it I'd be bringing in like over £300 a week. I should really get a new hobby! Good job I do it for me and not money :P

If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Asked by Sarah 
o_0 Hardest question ever and the answer would probably change depending on when you ask me, but right now I'm gonna say Bedknobs and Broomsticks. 

Did you ever play any musical instruments? If not, is there one you would like to be able to play? 
Asked by Emma 
I did actually! I started out as a solo singer in first school (which is technically using my voice as an instrument...right?), played the recorder and keyboard as standard at the start of middle school and then took flute and drum lessons for a year or two later in middle school. As an adult, well at like 18 or something, I bought myself an acoustic guitar and I still have's in pretty amazing condition seeing as I barely used it haha.
Overall I'm not too bothered about instruments and music isn't what it used to be for me but being able to play the piano super well would be cool.

Are you superstitious? 
Asked by Emma 
Yes and no. Kind of? I won't walk under ladders, though I suppose that's more common sense/safety, I won't walk over drains, I believe bad things happen in threes and that it's bad luck to see only one Magpie at a time. Oh I also say 'touch wood' and wouldn't open an umbrella indoors. I suppose that means I am pretty superstitious haha.

What is your dream job?
Asked by Emma 
Two things I guess. Either an assistant on set of Disney movie (a proper movie, not an animation obviously), literally doing anything like being a runner or something. Or the thing I say alll the time and that is to have my own animal sanctuary and use it as an education centre to teach people about wildlife, animals, our environment, climate change etc etc :) 

Do you want another tattoo? If so, what are you thinking of?
Asked by Emma 
Oh so many. I haven't been tattooed since 2012 because it costs a lot of money and I'm poor, but I've had about 5 other pieces planned for a long time. I don't often share much about my ideas though as I've had ones copied before and I think that is terrible. It's a personal thing and not something to just replicate from someone else's ideas and experiences. 

If you could change the ending to any film, what would it be and why?
Asked by Anna 
I've literally watched so many movies over the past year or two, it's really difficult to narrow it down and single something out haha. I dunno if I'd change any. Is that a cop out of this question? There are probably ones I didn't fully enjoy but I respect that that is how the writers envisioned it lol. ;)

If you could travel back in time to any era, which would you choose and why?
Asked by Natasha
The late 1800s. Out in a rural area or as a servant in a big country house. I work as a cleaner as it is something I'd enjoy that, there were some pretty awesome books out then and the more simplistic way of life back then is just appealing. People took time to do more meaningful things. I know there were obviously a lot of bad things then too but there are now too so...

What did you want to be when you were a little 'un?
Asked by Michelle
There were few things but the main ones were all pretty diverse.  As far as I can remember, A vet was the first thing I was deadset on, as I was super into Animal Hospital and Puppy in my Pocket's but once I learnt what it entailed I knew that would never happen. Marine Biologist was next mainly due to my obsession with dolphins and then it was an Interior Designer for a long time. I did my work placement (and got a job out of it at the end) in an Interiors business. :) Safe to say I am none of those things now...

What's Bakers' best trick (and can we see it!?)
Asked by Michelle
Oh, I dunno. Obviously, I think all of them are amazing but to some people they might not be very impressive. I have a couple little videos of some of his tricks on my YouTube, however, there are many others and also some we are still working on as, like me, he will never stop learning new things for the whole of his life!

What's your shoe size?
Asked by Mona
A UK6. The most common, which means my size is always sold out first lol.

Describe your sunniest, smiliest way to spend a day?
Asked by Nin
I am definitely someone whose mood is affected by weather so it would have to be a nice dry, bright, moderately warm day with somewhere quiet and free from other people/dogs for Baker and I to go explore and relax :) Even just a garden, but we don't have a proper one here.

Thanks again to all who asked me such interesting things. I wanna know what instruments you play and what your shoes size is haha! I have a separate Disney Q&A coming in a month or so as I received a few Disney ones and thought it'd be better to keep the apart. See my previous Disney Q&A here, oh and leave me Disney questions below!


  1. I understand your frustration with shoe sizes, I'm a size 6 too. :))

  2. Ah, the shoe size one made me smile because that's my size too and they're always sold out! I loved your answer to my question as well, and I definitely agree. I think I'd like to go back to the Renaissance period too as I'd love to have seen all of the architecture, art, books and idea that started coming out around that time, but I think the 1800's definitely has a pull to it, and I'd like to have seen the 1920's too! Love your answers to the dream job one as well, I can easily see you doing both of those (and what amazing jobs they'd be!) - Tasha

    1. Lol!! See what I mean? It's like the most common size. I wonder how many people that read this blog that are also size 6! haha
      Yes! Plus, Walt Disney was born in 1901 so I'd have been alive during his prime :P
      Thank you :)


  3. Bad luck size sixers! Mine are size three (practically hooves) so I do get the good sale bargains!
    Love all of these questions Danielle - Bedknobs and Broomsticks is an excellent choice too.
    I can confirm that I play NO instruments. In fact I've been told on many an occasion that MY voice is absolutely NOT an instrument. No ma'am.
    Last thing - can we open the Devon branch of the rescue/wildlife education centre? That would be my dream job.

    1. You're so lucky!! lol
      Oh I'm sure you have a beautiful voice!! And yes. 100%. Let's take this nationalll :P


  4. I loved reading this post! It's always nice to get to know more about the person behind the blog, thanks for sharing Danielle :D Also that picture of Baker is adorable!


    1. Thanks so much! :) I always like reading these types of posts too.
      He is pretty cute eh? haha Thanks!
