10 things you don’t know about me…

Thanks to Shannon at shannonagains for the tag and the questions. Here are 10 things you didn’t know about me:

  1. What was your first job?
    1. I worked for the summer after leaving school as a Production Operator at a company local to home. Basically my dad told me I wasn’t going to spend the summer between school and college dossing about, and he marched me up to sign up for a job for the 6 weeks before starting college
  2. Pancakes: thin or fluffy?
    1. I love thin pancakes, the ones you generally make on Shrove Tuesday. I’ll let you into a bit of a secret, my favourites are thin pancakes with lemon and sugar, and Neapolitan ice cream rolled up in it. You may think gross, but it is the most scrummy pancake!
  3. Showers or baths?
    1. A nice long soak in the bath, with bubbles and the iPad playing. It’s the only time I watch TV and fully concentrate on it
  4. Geeky question: what would your patronus be? (Transalation for non Harry Potter fans: what animal best represents you?
    1. Thank goodness you explained that, hopefully my answer actually reflects the question! The animal that would best represent me would be a cat. They like to sleep, really like their own space but also like to be comfortable and warm
  5. Do you have any tattoos? If yes, what are they? If no, have you ever considered getting one?
    1. No I don’t, I did consider it in my teens but my first boyfriend got a tattoo on his 18th birthday and as I sat waiting the noise was something that made me squirm. The want disappeared soon after that
  6. What’s your favourite blog post you’ve written?
    1. The one based on my 30th birthday weekend. It was quite possibly my favourite weekends away and I am very humbled and lucky to have such amazing friends
    2. (I wanted to add this one too, even though it says ‘post’ not ‘posts’. I have a bit of a dry sense of humour so it’s sometimes lost in translation, but this was a post based on life experiences since becoming pregnant and a mum)
  7. What’s your favourite sweet treat?
    1. A ‘garbage pail’ which you can get from Typhoon Lagoon. Basically a bucket and spade which is full to the brim with  ice cream and sweet goodies. I only ever get it in Florida and as we’re heading there later this year I am very excited about the prospect of it! This year I’m going to be trying out “the Kitchen Sink” – BIGGER AND BETTER!

      A family tradition where my dad and I sit and eat this together. This was from when we went in 2008
  8. Describe your perfect piece of toast – type of bread, how “done”, what toppings?
    1. This is an interesting one, thick white bread, cooked until brown on one side and slightly toasted on the other and then medium strength cheese sliced and placed on top of it and put under the grill until bubbling (there’s a reason my waist is not as it was as a teenager!)
  9. What’s your favourite colour to wear?
    1. I live in black, navy, white and denim. Any hoodie / jeans combos are a firm fave; I’m very plain and boring but it works for me, although as I write this I am in a fluorescent pink top (fundraising day at work)

  10. What song reminds you of a happy moment?
    1. My husband sang an adapted version of ‘marry you’ which was our wedding song back in 2011. He recorded it and gave it to me as a present on our wedding anniversary in 2014. It gives me goosebumps and makes me smile every time I hear it. He ended it with my name, which may be a little cheesy to some, but it makes it a bit more personal and takes me back to our wedding day

Thanks for tagging me Shannon, it was a nice trip down memory lane!
