Random Facts About Me

Random Facts about me

When was the last time you cried?

Sunday, I was tired and not feeling well both mentally and physically. Sometimes it’s better to just release all the tension through a good cry!

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

I hope so, although I think I might get annoyed with myself for being flakey sometimes. I am working on this but sometimes I just wanted to cancel all my plans and stay at home in my joggers!

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Not as much as I used to, but that’s mainly because I am married to a man who is the epitome of sarcasm!

What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Hmm, that’s a good one. I would have to say eyes. I love studying the colours in peoples eyes. 

Scary movie or happy endings?

Happy ending! I am a massive wuss and will get nightmares from scary films. I like a happy film that puts me in a positive mood. Especially love a black and white film as they make me feel so cosy.

Favourite smells?

Basil! I used to have a St Eval candle which had basil in and I would salivate every time I lit it! I also love my Yankee Candle burner, especially in autumn and winter when I can get the cinnamon smells out. Yum!

What’s the furthest you’ve ever been away from home?

Mauritius. This is quite an achievement for me as I am so scared of flying. I think the fact that I was flying in an airbus softened the blow though.

Do you have any special talents?

Not really! I have double jointed thumbs and I can lick my nose with my tongue!

Where were you born?

Croydon, in what was Mayday Hospital. I think it’s now called Croydon University Trust or something. I’m sure it’s still not very glamorous!

What are your hobbies?

Blogging obviously! I also love crochet but rarely find the time to do it. Generally anything crafty, I love making something out of nothing with my hands.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I was always flicking between being a surgeon and a biology teacher. I haven’t strayed that far from this but I am neither!

How many countries have you been to?

Only a few because of the previously mentioned fear of flying. Let’s see, America, Mauritius, Dubai, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece.

What was your favourite/ worst subject at school?

I bloody loved biology at school. I was fascinated by the human body and how it works. I’m not sure there was anything I really disliked at school, probably Religious Studies, but that was because the teacher was boring!

What is your favourite drink?

This varies but at the moment I love a Pornstar martini. Makes me feel so glam having a drink in a champagne saucer and getting the shot of Prosecco. Plus it has pomegranates in which are definitely a luxury fruit!

What would you (or have you) named your kids?

That’s a secret (in case anyone steals them!). 

Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?

I’ve actually just written a post about this, which you can read here.

How many boyfriends have you had?

Three. One dumped me when I was 17 and I married then other two. (Not at the same time!)

Favourite memory from childhood?

I have a few which mainly centre around fun times with family and friends. I have some lovely memories of spending Indian summers in the garden as a child. We had a huge garden growing up and I would roll down the lawn and the hazy heat whilst my family drank tea and ate freshly baked cake.

How would you describe your fashion sense?

I do pride myself on being able to dress for my shape. I am hourglass shaped, no matter how much I weigh. Fashion doesn’t always come into it as some styles don’t suit my shape. I think I would describe it as classic but fun.

Tell us one of your bad habits?

Putting too much pressure on myself. I have such high standards and then get cross at myself when I can’t achieve them. It’s silly because nobody else cares about these things, only me!

There you go, some little facts about me. I hope that was enlightening! Now it’s time for some other people to join in the fun. Lets hear from:
