1. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Erica Price. Until I had my son 5 years ago, I was a manager in financial services. Once my son was born, I became a full time mum. I started writing for another blog a few years ago. Now I write for two blogs other than my own and I cover a range of subjects from green issues and natural living to social media and marketing. Last year I started my own blog 92three30 to write about my life as a mum with a child at school.
2. What's your earliest memory?
I remember my baby sister coming home from hospital – I was only 2 years 2 months old, but it was a big event.
3. What item would you be lost without?
My iPhone. I left my previous phone in a taxi and didn't get it back. The same day I found out that I'd won an iPhone. My husband couldn't believe how jammy it was and I think he was a bit put out as he was the Apple fan in the house and he would have loved one. Since I got it I've become a real convert and use it such a lot. It's been a revelation to me as I only had a fairly basic phone before and now I can do some many things on it.
4. When is your favourite time of year?
Spring, I think, because it promises the summer to come. I also love spring flowers and enjoy seeing the progression from snowdrops through crocuses and daffodils to tulips.
5. Which 4 people, dead or alive, would you invite to dinner?
I've always been fascinated by history so I think they would be mostly dead people. I'd like to invite Churchill(I'd like to see what he was like in a relaxed setting), Richard III (to make up my own mind on the princes in the tower mystery), Oscar Wilde (I think he would be a scream) and Bing Crosby (I'd like him to sing for his supper).
6. If money was no object where would you go on holiday?
Torn between Australia and St.Lucia. Australia is where my sister now lives and I'd love to see her and her family, but apart from visiting them, I have absolutely no interest in the place. In fact, aside from the family connection, visiting Australia comes very low on the list of countries to visit (just above the war torn and dangerous ones). St.Lucia was a strong contender for our honeymoon destination (we went to Mauritius) and only narrowly missed out on being chosen, so I'd love to go.
7. What would you tell your 16 year old self?
That's tough. Making different choices then would have meant not meeting certain people or having different experiences later. I think I'd actually have given advice on A level choices (I made some mistakes and had to do an extra year to get to where I wanted) and hence got to university a year earlier. That would have meant that I wouldn't have come out in a recession and I would have been earning for an extra year.
8. What was the last cd you bought yourself?
This is a difficult one for me as I don't buy CDs – I am a bit of a musical philistine. The last one that was bought for me was a Fleetwood Mac album, but I don't think I have bought one for myself for the last 10 years or so.
9. Do you have a favourite film?
The answer to that would probably change based on my mood and there are a few that I love. They're all feel good movies though and surprisingly two of them are musicals: The Sound of Music, High Society, Pretty Woman.
10. What are you reading at the moment?
Nothing is the simple answer. This is because I finished a book last night and haven't started another yet. I've just finished reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. It's a fantasy novel and was recommended by another blogger. I read a wide range of stuff with old style crime fiction being my favourite, but I've read quite a lot of fantasy over the last few years.
