I love reading really honest posts and nosing into people’s lives and having just decided to take my blog in a more personal direction this nomination from the fabulous Melanie at Fraser’s Fun House couldn’t have come at a better time! To find out more about Melanie you can read her post here!
So here are my questions and answers!
When was the last time you cried?
The other day we watched the Greatest Showman for the first time and I cried so much! In fact even listening to some of the songs the following day made me well up again! I don’t cry that much but family films always seem to leave me in tears!
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I think so! I’m a loyal friend and even though some people can take me the wrong way and it takes a while to get to know the real me I like to think I’m a good friend!
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Yes way too much! My daughter has picked up on it and she tries to be sarcastic too, though she always says “I’m being sarcastic” straight afterwards!
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I’m not sure, maybe their hair? What sticks in my mind most after meeting someone for the first time is their personality rather than looks!
Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy ending definitely. I hate scary/horror films and prefer comedies or dramas. I like it when the ending is all tied up, happy or not, I don’t like to be left with unanswered questions!
Petrol! I just love the smell!
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been away from home?
We went to New York last year and I felt so far away from home. We didn’t take my daughter and speaking to her over the phone with such a large time difference was horrible! Although I loved it there I did feel a bit too far away!
Do you have any special talents?
My amazing writing skills? Haha, no to be honest I’m pretty talentless! I can do this weird thing with my chin that makes me look like a frog but that’s about it!
Where were you born?
Newport, South Wales!
What are your hobbies?
Blogging, reading and occasionally the gym! Also Netflix and eating!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I really wanted to run my own pub (I grew up watching EastEnders!) After working in Wetherspoons for 5 years that dream was soon sucked out of me!
How many Countries have you been to?
4! I thought it was more than that but a lot of the places I have been have all been part of Spain! I’ve been to America 3 times and most of our family holidays were in Spain or France. I’m also adding England to my list since I’m from Wales!
What was your favourite/ worst subject at school?
I loved Maths, it was my best and favourite subject. I hated PE and always wrote myself notes to get out of it or would hide my kit and pretend I’d forgotten it. When we did swimming lessons I used my period as an excuse for pretty much every lesson, my teacher must have thought there was something wrong with me!
What is your favourite drink?
Pepsi Max all day!!
What would you (or have you) named your kids?
My daughter is called Mollie. If she has been a boy she would have been called Alfie though I don’t really like the name much anymore!
My current favourite names are Amelia and Rupert!
Who are some of your favourite YouTubers?
I never watch YouTube I prefer blogs!
How many boyfriends have you had?
4 serious ones!
Favourite memory from childhood?
Living in our house in Pontypool, always playing out in the street and having fun! We moved to Cwmbran when I was seven and I really missed it. It was my favourite place I’ve ever lived and have so many happy memories there.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
T shirt and jeans. I’m literally always in t shirt and jeans!
Tell us one of your bad habits?
I’ve smoked since I was 15. I gave up October 2016 and now vape though am currently a week into giving that up so my stress levels are pretty high right now. I wish I’d never started because it will always be a battle for me to not smoke.
Wow so there you are, a lot of random facts about me! Thanks so much Melanie for the tag, I don’t usually get around to doing these things but I really enjoyed this one!
I know quite a lot of people have already been nominated for this so I’m not going to be nominating anyone specific but if you want to answer the questions then feel free, just tag me so I can read them!
