Get To Know Me

Despite blogging for over a year, I often get asked some quite random questions because I don’t really share a lot about myself! SO I thought I’d do something a little more fun than my usual boring posts with a Get To Know Me Tag!

Here goes…

Are you a morning or a night person?

Definitely a morning person! By 8pm I’m ready for bed and going out any later than 6pm tends to need a psyching up sessions. I mean seriously I just wanna be in my pj’s with a cuppa!

Are you afraid of the dark?

A little bit yes… Well ALOT actually. I’m such a baby and sometimes I get Chris to go upstairs first and turn the lights on before I brave it!

Are you an extrovert or Introvert?

Introvert definitely! I’m very quiet when I don’t know people and I’m not outspoken in the slightest. Of course I can get riled up but ill only ever show that to those closest to me!

Are you double jointed?


Are you left or right-handed?

I’m right-handed and have no ability what so ever with my left hand!

Are you more of a messy person or a tidy one?

I like to call myself an organised mess… Chris just calls me messy! BUT I am quite OCD in that everything does have a place and I get quite crabby if it’s not in it.

Are you on time or always late?

I’m always on time and usually early to things. I get really anxious at the thought of being late!

Are you ticklish?


Can you curl your tongue?


Can you ice skate?

No, I fall and never let go of the side. I’m awful!

Can you wiggle your ears?


Coffee or Tea?

Tea with a splash of milk and 2 sugars is my idea of heaven!

Cookies, cake or donuts?

It’s a pretty even split between cookies and cake… But the cookies have to be soft and kind of gooey and cake has to be (I hate this word) moist!

Have you ever participated in a talent show?


Did you go to prom?


Did you like to school?

I loved the learning part of school (which is a good thing!) but hated the social aspect. I always seemed to be the butt of a lot of jokes at school on behalf of the more ‘popular’ peers. I also was always one of the biggest so as you can imagine, that did nothing for my self-esteem and love of school!

Do you believe ghosts?

I have a massive over active imagination so no matter how much I say no truth is I do and if something weird happens I always blame a ghost of some sort!

Do you bite your nails?

I did when I was younger but now I’m quite obsessive about keeping my nails in tip-top health!

Do you consider yourself a good cook?

It depends on the meal. I can’t cook lasagna at all, or casseroles (I know the easiest thing ever but they always come out tasting horrific) but a roast or ‘play it by ear’ kind of meal I can do quite well I think! That being said I am a terrible baker and some of the things I ‘bake’ are actually embarrassing!

Do you enjoy dancing?

In a ‘dancing around the lounge’ kind of way yes, I love it. Abi is obsessed with dancing and she always has Chris and me prancing around everywhere. Out in public however, not so much!

Do you enjoy arts and crafts?

I enjoy the idea of them but I’m awful at them so after 2 minutes I start to despise them a little!

Do you forgive easily?

Yes. Apparently its one of my worst traits.

Do you have a nickname?

Chris and Abi call me Grumpus and are trying to teach Izzi to do it too! Apparently it’s because when I’m grumpy, I’m REALLY grumpy…

Do you have any allergies?


Do you have any phobias?

Heights and spiders!

Do you prefer the beach or the country?

I love both. Living in Verwood means we have both just down the road and I love it.

Have you ever been hospitalized?

No, the only time I’ve ever been in hospital is to have the girls and I’ve had to stay over In hospital over night when the girls have been poorly!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Australia. I visited my aunty and uncle when I was 18 and fell in love.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A vet or a teacher. As I got older I swayed more to teaching but after I left school I settled at Tesco. It wasn’t until my maternity leave with Izzi I decided to finally pursue something I loved and I’m now a SEN teaching assistant.

What do you do on a Friday night?

Sleep!! After a week of school runs and work I love having a really hot bath and climbing into bed!

What is one food you refuse to eat?

Raisins… Eugh they make me vomit! Everything about them the texture, the taste!

What is one item on your bucket list?

Scuba diving on the great barrier reef. I didn’t get to do it when I went as I broke my leg and its something that’s remained on the bucket list ever since!

What is one item you can’t live without?

This is a really hard one. I’m going to have to go with a hairband! Simple but very VERY necessary!

What movie can you watch repeatedly and never get bored with?

I have 2. The first is any Harry Potter film. I’ve watched them so much I can’t get bored with them. And second has to be trolls. Not through choice but because Abi and Izzi love it and thankfully it’s so cheery you cat really get fed up of it!

What is your current obsession?

Nailtiques nail protein. It’s has made my nails so strong and healthy!

What is your favourite animal?

Killer whales! I used to have such an obsession. I have research books and all!

What is your favourite book?

I have so many. But Gone Girl is one that I couldn’t put down and I finished it within a couple of days!

What is your favourite dessert?

Warm Chocolate Brownie with clotted cream ice cream! Heaven!

What is your favourite take away?

Chinese!!! Duck in a pineapple sweet and sour sauce! And duck pancakes! OHHHH and crispy chilli beef! Hell, I love it all!

What is your favourite thing to have for breakfast?

Porridge with frozen summer fruitsΒ  (still cold and hard) and Nutella!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years??

Both Chris and me will have progressed in our careers, Abi and Izzi will be thriving and are still happy, healthy and crazy like they are now. And we will have finished refurbishing our home!

So, that’s it!
