25 Questions Tag

25 Questions Tag

I was thinking about my blog the other day and realised that I haven’t really shared much trivia about myself. As a bit of fun, I thought I would answer the 25 Questions Tag even though I haven’t been nominated by anyone!! *Erm, awkward silence.* Anyway…

What is your middle name? I don’t have a middle name.

What was favourite subject at school? Graphics and Media Studies

What is your favourite drink? A soya latte

What is your favourite song at the moment? Little Wonders by Rob Thomas from Meet The Robinsons OST

What is your favourite food? Anything with cheese… A jacket potato, pasta or toasted sandwich.

What is the last thing you bought? A Canon Powershot S120 for vlogging. I’m a little bit scared about starting this and I may never publish anything.

Favourite book of all time? I have two: Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsh and This Book Will Save Your Life by A. M. Homes. I’m not very religious so the title may put you off reading the first one but I read both these and it changed my attitude towards my life.

Favourite Colour? Green. Apparently it is the colour of prosperity.

Do you have any pets? No. My husband is allergic to cats so that is off the cards.

Favourite Perfume? Again, I have two: Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf and Miss Dior by Chanel

Favourite Holiday? Skala in Kefalonia. It was my first holiday where it was just Andy and I before we were married and we loved every minute of it. Well, except when Andy thought it would be fun to take a long walk along the coast on the hottest day of the holiday at midday. It was not fun.

Are you married? Yes.

Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times? I used to go to Thailand every two to three years as a child but stopped about eight years ago. I’ve also been to America and Europe on various occasions.

Do you speak any other language? I can speak Thai fluently. I learnt French and German at school and Spanish and Italian at University but I can’t remember enough to have a conversation.

How many siblings do you have? I consider myself to be an only child. I have a half sister but I have never met her.

What is your favourite shop? Any where that sells decent coffee.

Favourite restaurant? I’d have to say GPT Smokehouse in Bath. I’ve never had a bad meal there and the owners are so nice.

When was the last time you cried? This morning. I’m so tired!

Favourite Blog? Anna Saccone Joly.

Favourite Movie? I tend to fall asleep in films. I haven’t been to the cinema in three years. I do like films that make you think e.g. The Prestige, Inception, Limitless and Memento.

Favourite TV show? Home and Away! I also like Chicago Fire and two oldies: One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl.

PC or Mac? Can I say both? I’m still new to Mac and not used to it yet.

What phone do you have? A grey iPhone 5.

How tall are you? 5ft 4

Can you cook? Yes. My husband always wants me to make him my Thai Sausage Roll invention!

I tag anyone who would like to play. Bx
