I do not usually do tags but actually I’ve quite enjoyed this one. Perhaps I’m a bit self absorbed but sometimes I like to talk about myself! That’s probably why I started to blog in the first place…Thank you so much to Clare from The Pramshed for this tag! I’ve answered her ten questions below to give you all a chance to get to know me a bit more!
For those that don’t know me, here I am! This was taken in the very early hours of the morning as our ship was sailing into Stavanger, Norway. Hence the no makeup!
- What is your favourite food and why?
I don’t know if I can choose between Tapas or Mexican…I love spice and both of these cuisines have a lot of this! Tasty, filling and full of colour.
- If there was one place in the world you would visit, where would that be?
I love to travel, there are still so many places I would absolutely love to visit in the UK and around the world. However, I really want to go to Disneyworld in Florida. I feel like I missed out on going as a child and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do so I will visit there at some point in my life!
- What do you do in your spare time, other than blogging or working?
I’m quite the introvert and love to snuggle up with my fluffy’s, a cup of coffee and a good book – be it paperback (I don’t do hardbacks) or on my kindle. I’ve recently started listening to audio books too to relax or whilst I’m out walking. I just love a good story, especially crime thriller fiction. I also really love to cook and experiment with food. I’m not much of a baker but I really enjoy creating meals for my family. Adam and I go to the cinema quite a lot, we both really love superhero films and if we’re not watching the films we’re catching up with Arrow, The Flash or Gotham on TV.
- When you were little what did you want to be?
I wanted to be a journalist for the longest time and did my work experience at my local newspaper which I loved. As I grew up I didn’t like the way some journalists act and I hated the fact that I would have to write about things I might not care about. Rather than work in the media I started blogging as a way to share my thoughts big issues, share my loves and talk about the things I care strongly for. Now I feel like I have the best of both worlds, complete control on what I’m writing and still sharing stories.
- What’s the best book you’ve ever read?
I would have to say Bird Box by Josh Malernan. It’s an amazing book. My thoughts on it wouldn’t do it justice but I really recommend every one read it.
- What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory?
When I was five I was a bridesmaid at a wedding, as I was walking down the aisle I got my knickers stuck in a rather uncomfortable position…being five and not really noticing what I was doing I untucked myself…it’s on camera. I can laugh at it now because I don’t really remember it but my grandparents like to remind me and took great pleasure telling Adam.
- What is your favourite song and why?
I don’t know if I have a favourite song anymore. I like to listen to music but not as much as I used to and I tend to listen to the same things I did as a teenager. Angela Baker and My Obsession with Fire by Senses Fail was always a favourite back then. I was a right emo. Now, I have sentimental feelings about Radioactive by Imagine Dragons as it was a band Adam introduced me to and the first song I heard by them.
- If you could rule the world, what would you do on day 1?
I’d probably get someone else to do the work so I could move on and do what I want. I like having control over my life but I really can’t be bothered with the responsibility of other people! I’d make sure I’d have a multi-passport and free cruise travel for life though so I could see every part of the world I was ruling.
- What sort of day have you had today?
It’s only about half way through the day as I write this. Not much has happened. I’ve packed one suitcase though for my holiday.
- Lastly, what do you want to achieve from blogging?
I want to harnass the skills I develop through blogging and the opportunities I have access to so that I can write a book. I love writing and using my blog as a way to develop my writing abilities and network with other lovely bloggers. I am always learning from them.
I’m not going to tag anyone specifically as I don’t want to put any pressure on anyone but I’ll add this post to some linkys and if you want to join in I’d love to find out more about you.
