Blogon Xmas Jumper Linky – A bit about me.

This year I will be attending Blog on Xmas and i’m an equal measure of excited and terrified! If you’ve been here a while you will have seen i’m a little (lot) bit socially awkward and not the greatest with going places alone but lets not dwell on that.

Lets get down to it…

Please share your favourite photo of you.

I don’t tend to like pictures of myself very much, this one is current and looks like me.

If you could choose a band to play in your garden for your birthday, who would you pick?

This is so hard. I don’t tend to listen to current music, other than Ed Sheeran. I think maybe Good Charlotte, I loved them growing up (and still do) so it would be amazing to get everyone together and dance around like fools.

What do you take with you for long visits to the toilet?

My phone comes with me pretty much everywhere, so that.

What word can’t you spell?

Im pretty terrible at spelling if im being honest, I think it’s been made worse with the fact my phone usually just changes it for me!

What’s the most unusual job you’ve ever had?

I’ve had pretty basic jobs. Cinema, Primark, Photo lab, Dental Nurse… nothing special.

Knitting, sewing or crochet?

I love the possibilities with Crocheting but i’m rubbish at all three! I love crafts but my skills just don’t match up.

Without looking it up, what is a jerkinhead?

I have absolutely no clue. Its made me think of gherkins though.. and now i’m hungry.

If you could have as much of one food as you wanted forever, what would it be?

I’ve thought about this question way more than I should have… would I get to choose toppings or literally the same thing every time? I think either pasta or pizza (although pizza usually gives me a belly ache). Oh, or chips!

What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?

Becoming a Mum. Scariest and most rewarding thing ever.

If you needed a getaway driver, who would you choose?

Baby Driver.. have you seen the film? In real life, probably MM because he drives me everywhere else… especially nuts (HA).

Would you rather live in Narnia or at Hogwarts?

Hogwarts. I love the idea of magic and the world of Harry Potter.

What snack food says ‘Christmas’ to you?

Twiglets! Do they even sell them throughout the year? I’m not a big fan of them but they still seem to be around every Christmas.

Is there life on Mars?

I’d like to think there was more out there than just us. I’m excited for the future and hope i’ll be around to see other planets properly explored. Lets just hope they’re friendly if there is anything.

Which Christmas movie would you be a character in, and who would play you?

Our Family lives all over the place so most likely Four Christmases. I love Sophia Bush and Mandy Moore so either of them could play me… just squint a lot and you’ll forget how better looking they are.

What are you proudest of?

Pops. Its such a cliche answer but nothing i’ve ever done in my life compares to her. I’m so happy I started my blog and how far i’ve come in the past year, and in general since moving to Wales 3 years ago.


Blog ON Conference

Until the next post,
Are and Pops.

    Good Charlotte is a great choice, it has been a few years since i last listened to them though!

    *Digs around for old Good Charlotte albums* – now there’s a band I haven’t listened to in ages. You’d be surprised how many of us (even the older hands) feel awkward at large events, so just jump straight in. You can at least know that you have blogging in common with everyone there.
