20 Facts about Me

I love recording our lives and writing all about my beautiful boys, but the lovely Sarah shared 20 facts about herself and tagged me to do the same and I liked the challenge.  It wasn't easy and I can't promise all or even any will be particularly interesting, but here are 20 facts about me.


1. Despite being made to mime in my primary school choir, I sang for a couple of years in my local church choir.

2. I had my nose pierced for a couple of years in my early twenties but had to take it out for work reasons.  I still have my ears, my belly and my tongue pierced though.

3. My degree is in English Literature but I also studied modules in Psychology and Greek Mythology.

4. I am a bit like Joey from freinds when it comes to food - I am terrible at sharing.

5. My hair has been every colour under the sun, red, blue, blonde, black . . . but I haven't seen its natural colour for well over 10 years now.

6. I love to travel and have so many places I still want to see.  Top of the list at the moment is doing the Trans-Siberian through Russia.



7. I love having cosy feet and like to have a pair of slippers in every room of the house so I never have to hunt for them.

8. My favourite Christmas film of all time is Miracle on 34th Street - we watched it every year when I was growing up and I can't wait to introduce my boys to it.

9. I always have the TV on an odd number for volume.  It drives my sister crazy (she is all about the evens) but I have to have it on an odd.

10. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would put everything into storage and go travelling for a year with my boys.  I would love to show them the world, and why not now?

11. I love a cheesy chick flick and my favourite movie is 10 things I hate about you.

12. I never wear my socks in pairs (unless it is a complete accident).  Life is too short to waste time pairing up socks.

13. I don't have a driving licence despite hundreds of lessons and several tests*

14. My favourite colour is red.

15. I had both my boys in the same hospital that I was born in.

16. I have only ever ridden a horse once and that was on a cattle ranch in the Australian outback.



17. I love cheese in every form, especially cheesecake.

18. Before my buggy obsession started, it was all about the heels and I have several bookcases full of shoes in my house.

19. I am incredibly messy - If there are ever photos of inside my house on this blog then I probably tidied up especially for them.

20. When I was younger, my mum used to take me to musicals as a birthday treat and I still have a huge love for them.

So there we have it, Me in 20 facts.  If you fancy joining in then let me know!




*More than 5, less than 8 - some people should just not be on the road and I am clearly one of them!

  2. That's it, I can no longer speak to you. I have MAJOR odd number issues when it comes to volume. The car, the sound system, the TV.... all even! Odd is just wrong.
    And I like your hair brown in that picture with the tiger. It suits you. x

  3. Wow! Can't believe how much you've travelled- very jealous!
    A great post, a wonderful way of capturing you. I love random.... but do prefer to fall on the side of evens.... apart from 13 and that's always a lucky number.

  4. We are very similar in the respects of travelling- my dream would be to go travelling with my girls. Unfortunately Mr E isn't as massive fan as me, he likes to go on holiday but travelling isn't really is thing! And I adore cheesecake too! x

  6. I've done the trans-siberean from Moscow to Beijing stopping off in Mongolia for a week (it was part of a bigger trip - we took the train from Hastings to Hong Kong!)

    As for the telly - even numbers only!!!

  7. Ha! I passed my driving test on my 5th or 6th time. I don't even remember anymore. I have a bit of a sock thing too. I don't wear odd socks but I wear them which ever way they come out of the wash - the right way round or inside out ... I don't adjust them. I'm a bit of a wanderer too. Despite the fact we 're coming to live back in the UK, I can't say that it'll be forever. Forever in one place really scares me :-)
