    Totally agree with number 20. I’ve been known to cry at a toilet roll advert but was dried eyed at my wedding and my daughter’s birth. One fact about me is I was vegetarian for twenty years but when my daughter was born I needed the meat protein and now I’m a complete carnivore again! #KCACOLS

    What a lovely way to share a bit about yourself! Love your wedding photo, so beautiful! I’m always impressed at anyone who has a handle on languages, it’s such an impressive skill. I can relate to your last point – I’m a very emotional person, but I also didn’t cry at either my wedding or the birth of my son! I cried my eyes out at the intro to One Born Every Minute a week later though – so strange! Thanks so much for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    It’s always lovely to find out more about the person behind the blog. I’m an emotional person and didn’t cry at my wedding or either of my daughters births. I think I was just overwhelmed and it wasn’t tears that came, but a new emotion! Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove Laura x

    I seriously thought I was the only one, glad to find out that you also didn’t cry. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting Laura and for hosting a lovely linky party for all the bloggers to connect #SharingtheBlogLove

    Amazingly I cried all morning before my wedding, all the way down the aisle, but when it came to being handed over by my dad to my new husband I was felt so happy the tears just stopped. I was so exhausted when my first two monkeys were born I just fell asleep. I did cry when I had my girl because she was a total surprise. I didn’t care what we were having but I didn’t expect it to be a girl. It was a lovely surprise.
