I was tagged by Sally over at Who’s the Mummy? to share a little bit more about me in a random Q&A. I love these posts as they are often random, insightful and fun to both read and write.
So here goes:
When was the last time you cried?
I cry all the time at the moment. If the children mention our old boy cat I cry, if they do something that makes me really proud I cry and if Little Man pronounces a word right for the first time I cry. Parenting is an emotional rollercoaster!
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I’d like to think so. I try to be as nice and kind as possible. I like to help people and I think I’m pretty fun to be around. I have a good sense of humour and I’m not too niche in my likes and dislikes. Yeah, I’d be my friend.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I used to use sarcasm constantly until I started blogging properly. Then I found that sarcasm is often lost online, that people read what you say as black and white so I had to step away from the sarcasm. Now I still use sarcasm but I save it for face to face conversations and avoid it online unless I’m 100% sure it will be taken the right way. It’s far too easy to offend people online.
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their teeth. I have hated my teeth for so long that I am always so envious of other people’s teeth. But, as I currently have braces to straighten my teeth I may stop noticing other people’s as much. Who knows.
Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings every time. I love a movie where all the questions get answered at the end, there are no loose ends and where everything works out. Scary movies where everyone dies or the world ends? Nah, I need the happy in my life.
Freshly cut grass, fresh coffee and that smell just outside just after a big rain storm – all dewy, earthy and new.
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
Do you have any special talents?
No, nothing at all. I can’t sing, can’t dance and can’t really play any instruments.
Where were you born?
In Kingston, Surrey.
What are your hobbies?
Aside from blogging? I love to read, I love music – and going to gigs when we get the chance. I love to travel, love a spa day/break and just love a pot of tea with a friend.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be either a wildlife photographer, a vet or a criminal psychologist. A bit of a mixed bag!
How many countries have you been to?
Oooh good question! The Dominican Republic, Italy, France, Mexico and America. Oh, and Tunisia, a horrendous holiday that I have almost entirely blanked from my memory!
What was your favourite/worst subject in School?
I absolutely loved art. I loved to sketch mostly and I’m still sad I didn’t go back to collect my art coursework after my GCSEs had finished. Worst would probably have been German. I had to pick a language but even to this day I can’t do accents so at school I sounded like a cockney trying to speak German. I was fine with writing it, reading it and listening to it but speaking it? No, awful.
What is your favourite drink?
Gin. I love a gin and tonic. But, I also love a nice cold pint of Coke on a hot day. And tea. Tea makes my world go round.
Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?
I don’t really watch YouTube….
How many boyfriends have you had?
A handful – then I met Dave when I was 19 and the rest is history.
Favourite memory from childhood?
I remember being pushed in a pram – a classic Silver Cross style pram – during a hail storm. It such a fleeting memory but one so vivid I can almost feel it.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
Casual, comfortable and nothing special. I love leggings, jeans, tops and Converse. Dresses and boots if I need to be a bit smarter.
Tell us one of your bad habits!
The only thing I can think of is not taking my make up off before bed. I forget to do it more often than I actually do it. I know, it’s bad for my skin but I still end up falling asleep and forgetting.
And there you have it – a bit more about me. Now, as is customary with these things, I’ll tag a few more people to answer these questions too. So consider yourself tagged: Laura, Becci, Lauren, Rosie and Hayley.
