There’s always a jolly feeling about Fridays, I love it – if only that could be bottled and sprinkled on some of the other days it would be bliss 😉 So the weekend is here, what are your plans? I’m (hoping) to dust off the barbecue and bask in the glorious sunshine – under my parasol of course! hehe Keeping fingers and toes crossed that this glorious flip-flop weather continues chums ❤
However onto today’s shenanigans… a huuuuge thank you to our lovely Laura over at Polka Dot Teapot for nominating me to take part in this fun questionnaire/tag. It’s been many moons since I’ve tackled one of these, so to get back to what feels like retro blogging I thought I’d give it a go. Why not eh? I’ve also nominated a few special blog buddies of my own to take part 😉
What is your middle name?
What was your favourite subject at school?
English Literature. I had the most loveliest teacher who was both smart and funny – plus, we got to read books for most of the class. What could be a better way to pass an hour?!
What is your favourite drink?
Overall Coca Cola, however if I’m indulging in a little tipple I’d most certainly opt for West Coast Cooler, which is a very yummy fruit flavoured spritzer!
What is your favourite song at the moment?
I’m shocking when it comes to keeping up with music trends, though the artists I listen to most would be Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Ray & Taylor Swift. Love a catchy wee tune to warble along too.
What’s your favourite food?
I looooove Chinese. Noodles with veg are most definitely my thing!
What is the last thing you bought?
A pack of heavy duty kitchen rolls. Yes, my spending habits are that exciting.
Favourite book of all time?
Oooh this changes so often but I reckon pretty much anything from Marian Keyes – in fact I’ve just finished Under The Duvet and it was fantastic!! Hilarious!! She’s the only author that can make me laugh and cry all in one chapter.
What is your favourite colour?
Although I keep *trying* to convince myself it’s ‘raspberry’ I notice that pretty much everything I buy is white or neutral. I’m clearly colour confuddled.
Do you any pets?
A beagle boy called Toby, a Tuxedo moggy called Gomez and a Mainecoon kitten called Boris!
Has to be DKNY. Beautiful, fresh and very distinctive.
I find that really hard to narrow down as every holiday I’ve been on has been special for different reasons. However I’ve whittled it down to a few:
Portrush: This is where we went as children every year with mum & dad. So many happy memories with my siblings… just a regular seaside town with amusements & souvenir shops, but as kids we thought it was amazing.
Disneyland Paris: Again another family holiday & the first time my gran travelled on a plane. Paris was freezing cold & eye-wateringly overpriced but it was worth it for the experience.
Ibiza: My first ‘girls only’ holiday. Needless to say we stayed away from the notorious San Antonio. A whole week of feeling totally chilled out, shopping at hippy markets & enjoying cocktails on the beach. Amazing.
The Lake District: Our honeymoon spot. The sun shone for all 7 days we were there and only started to rain when we were getting ready to drive back home! What a week sight seeing in gorgeous rural England.
Are you married?
Yep, and very happily at that too 😀
Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?
Just a few times on holiday, otherwise I’m a home bird.
Do you speak any other language?
A teeny bit of French… but that’s dating back to GCSE so it’s beyond rusty now.
How many siblings do you have?
I’ve two fantastic brothers (Curtis & Kirk) and my lovely little sis Leah!
What is your favourite shop?
Boots. Or pretty much anywhere that sells makeup for me to gawp at for a few hours.
Blue Chicago. It’s a rather funky American diner that sells the yummiest burgers and an awesome choccie fudge cake!
When was the last time you cried?
This afternoon… I tend to hit low points and get so fed up trying to cope with chronic pain and how life altering it’s been. It’s tiring and wears you out every single day in so many ways.
There’s just too many –call me a whimp but I just can’t choose. You’re all amazing!!! 😀
Sex And The City – I NEVER get tired of catching up with the gals!
Favourite TV Shows?
I’ve such a bizarre eclectic mix but… The Undateables, Ghost Hunters, Street Outlaws & Keeping Up With The Kardashians (don’t judge… it’s my guilty pleasure!) and Canal Journeys. Yep, I’m being totally serious.
PC or MAC?
I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’d love a MAC!
What phone do you have?
Wait for it…. An Apple iPhone 4. Yes I’m one of the few still using them but it works like a charm and I’m oddly attached to it. That little phone has been through a lot with me!
How tall are you?
5ft 11” bare foot
Can you cook?
Thanks again to the lovely Laura over at Polka Dot Teapot! My nominee’s are:
Just to be clear there’s absolutely no pressure whatsoever ladies – in fact for me, this was just a breath of fresh air & fun as it’s been soooo long since I’ve published anything like this! So if the Get To Know Me Tag sounds like your kinda thing then why not give it a go. We’d love to check it out!
Wishing y’all a fun filled weekend & I’ll see you all Sunday for a quick catch up 🙂
Catch me on:
