Come and meet me properly…
After an extremely tough weekend, I do not have the brain power to write an in-depth meaty blog post. I did however, stumble across the ’25 things about me’ tag. Since I enjoyed doing the Liebster Award so much, I thought I would do this and share all this information about me with you.
For giggles, I shall throw in a complete random mix of photos so you can see how I have grown into the person I am today!
It will give you a laugh if nothing else.
25 Get To Know Me Questions
1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is Louise – lots of people I know have this middle name, definitely a common one, but I like it all the same.
2. What was your favourite subject at school?
Well I love school and for that reason I had more than one favourite. But when you consider all the evidence and if I really, really had to choose, I would say English. Always in love with the written word.
3. What is your favourite drink?
I really am not that exciting when it comes to drinks. I love the odd cuppa, but drink mostly water. My go to alcoholic drink is vodka and lemonade. Although you can beat a bubbly glass of prosecco or lager shandy on a hot day!
4. What is your favourite song of the moment?
No idea. I listen to songs from the 1930’s onwards. I have thousands of favourites and electic tastes. But genre wise I would say pop!
5. What is your favourite food?
A load of juicy scallops to start, followed by a huge fillet steak cooked rare, chips and a huge crunchy salad; don’t forget the mayonnaise on the side! Then for the finale it would be a huge chocolate feast of brownie chunks, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, choc chips, sprinkles, chocolate sauce with one spoon….like I would share!
6. What is the last thing you bought?
Um…well, online it would be a bit of a splurge with clothes. I came clean to Sam when he came home – I even told him the amount I’d spent. My excuse is that half of it is probably going to be sent back anyway!
I also spent 99p on a song on iTunes.
7. Favourite book of all time?
Again, no idea. I love books. I have tons of them. My favourite authors are Katie Fforde and Sophie Kinsella – but so much more still to read. I’ll keep you posted.
8. Favourite colour?
Ah, very easy! Pink. Even better if the pink sparkles! All who know me are very well aware that pink is my colour.
9. Do you have any pets?
No, sadly not at the moment. When I was a child I had rabbits and fish. Being a full time worker and being out all day every day makes it hard to keep anything alive.
10. Favourite perfume?
My absolute go to is CoCo Mademoiselle by Chanel – love it. Bloody expensive though! My most recent purchase which I am getting lots of compliments on is ‘Olympea’ by Paco Rabbane.
11. Favourite holiday?
Last year Sam and I went to Brazil on our delayed honeymoon. We went for four weeks and did tons. That was extremely memorable and I was super proud of myself for being in a plane for 12 hours!!!!
Doing Florida when I was a young teenager was also awesome! Can’t wait to go back.
12. Are you married?
Yup sure am! Sam and I got married on 8th August 2014 and I have loved every minute. Well it’s easy when you’ve married your best friend. I’d do the wedding day all over again – with the same person of course. Everyone warns you how fast it goes and it’s so true. My one piece of advice is get your wedding filmed! I love watching it and you get to see so much more than you do on the day.
I survived on glasses of water and had about 5 mouthfuls of the wedding breakfast.
I was just buzzing on pure excitement and adrenalin for the entire day.
Even went to bed after 1am and up by about 6.15am the night before our big day!
13. Have you ever been out of the country? If so, how many times?
Oh gosh..um yes, lots and lots! Not entirely sure of the number but well into double digits!
14. Do you speak another language?
English obs. I can do a little Spanish. Only up to GCSE standard but I do wish I could speak it fluently. Maybe when I retire…!
15. How many siblings do you have?
Just one younger brother called Craig. There’s about 3 and a bit years between us.
16. What is your favourite shop?
Now this is really hard. I love different shops for different reasons. Can I just say Amazon?
John Lewis takes some beating.
17. Favourite restaurant?
Again depends on what I am eating. Nope – can’t narrow it down!
18. Last time you cried?
About two hours ago. I am having a bad weekend.
19. Favourite movie?
Seriously? Who has just one favourite movie? Dare you to show yourself! I can’t do this one either.
Totally in love with Pitch Perfect1 & 2 – can’t wait for the 3rd.
All Disney films – The Little Mermaid is just at the top for me.
There isn’t enough time to go through them all.
20. Favourite TV shows?
Mine have a bit of a theme: Midsomer Murders, Murder She Wrote, White collar and Dr Who.
Of course there plenty of others I love, but these sit at the top.
21. PC or Mac?
I had to be fluent on both at university, but I am a PC girl through and through.
22. Favourite Blog?
I read quite a few regularly and they are all fab. Have learnt lots from them.
23. What phone do you have?
I have the iPhone 6 plus. I watch tons of things on my phone so the screen is a great size.
24. How tall are you?
Not overly sure. Hovering around the 5′ 5″ mark I think. Taller with heels on.
25. Can you cook?
Yes I can and very well too! Have been cooking ever since I was in primary school and love to bake as well.
Well that was fun and gave me some light relief!
So now you know that bit more about me.
