The Sunshine Blogger Award
If you could live in any decade what decade would it be and why?
Wow this is a tricky one. I would say the seventies, because I love the fashion from back then. The bright colours and wild styles were fantastic. Actually, I now remember my 18th birthday party was a seventies themed disco. I wore a bright green circle dress and had my hair in the ‘Farrah Fawcett’ style flicks!
If you are an only child do you ever wish you had a sibling and if you have a sibling do you ever wish you were an only child?
I have a big brother who is ten years older than me, so for a big part of my childhood I did feel a bit like an only child. I definitely wouldn’t have it any other way though. My big brother and I used to fight like cat and dog when I was little. Now we are actually close friends and I know throughout thick and thin he is there for me and will always look out for me.
If you could be a professional at one thing what would it be? E.g. sports, musical instruments etc
Ooo good one! I would love to be a professional artist. I really admire people who can draw and paint. When I was at school I used to go and watch my friends whilst they did their A-level art. I am so jealous!
What is your favourite season?
LOL! In case it wasn’t obvious – Autumn. Not long now! I am so excited to get walking in those crunchy leaves!!!
Have you ever reread a book because you loved it so much?
Yes. I don’t read much. It takes me about a year to read a book because I always fall asleep. I end up reading the same page twelve times!
I have read Bill Bryson’s ‘Notes from a Small Island’ about a thousand times though. His humour is very me. I also love hearing him talk about places I know and love from an outsiders viewpoint.
Are you a glass half full or glass half empty type of person?
I wish i was glass half full. Naturally I am quite a pessimistic person, but I am working on my outlook and trying to adopt a more positive attitude. I am a big believer in self fulfilling prophecies and I want to be able to know I can achieve my dreams.
What is your strangest food combination?
Dairy Milk and Cheese and Onion crisps. I discovered this on a dare at uni and fell in love with it. I don’t treat myself very often to it because if I got a taste for it I won’t be able to stop!!
What mythical creature do you wish really existed?
Without a doubt the Phoenix. I imagine they would be so wise and I would totally have one as my patronus!
If someone narrated your life who would you want it to be?
Well I would love to have Stephen Fry because his voice is so relaxing and I totally admire him. However I feel Miranda Hart would be more realistic as I think we are cut from the same cloth!
What was the last song you sung along to?
Well I like to make my own songs up which my husband think is absolutely crazy! The last song I actually sung along to was probably Donna Summer – I Feel Love. A classic! Music is a big part of my life, I always have something on in the background. I am also unashamed to say I love to learn a rap – although I’m not very good!
Who is your favourite Disney character, and why?
Oh Gosh – Merlin from ‘The Sword in The Stone’. That was probably one of the first Disney films I watched as a child and it’s always one I watch on a rainy day. Merlin is such a funny character but he is also very caring and kind. I love him.
