It’s weird to think that I’ve now been blogging for 6 months. With that in mind, while I’ve talked a lot about various personal things, I haven’t really introduced myself properly. So, in the spirit of things, not only have I done a few updates to my About page, but I’ve also put together a list of random facts that hopefully you’ll find entertaining, or at the very least, they’ll give you a little insight into my weirdness.
I live in Bath with my husband and of course, Tilly, our cat.
I have a degree in Psychology and Counselling (bit of a sore point).
It took me 4 attempts to pass my driving test. It was over a span of 2 years and I passed 2 weeks before my theory test expired.
Since getting my first tattoo in April 2019, I now have 3 of them.
Frasier is my favourite TV show of all time.
When I worked at an opticians, I once had to leave a contact lens teach to go and throw up where I was so hungover. Ah Sundays. I’d love to tell you I was 18 and in the prime of life, but actually, it was two years ago after a family party.
When I was 16, I spent 2 weeks at a nursery for my work experience, even though I hate kids. I got ill after one week. I still hate kids.
My first job was at Woolworths. I worked there for 6 months before they went into administration. RIP Woolies.
I love medical documentaries. 24 Hours in A&E, Embarrassing Bodies, the lot. I find it fascinating.
I was obsessed with Steps when I was a kid. So much to the point that H was my first love.
I REALLY hate change. I’ve tried many times to grow up and deal with it, but I’m still working on it.
I didn’t get on a plane until I was 24, and that was after much persuasion from my husband. It was a 2 hour flight to Barcelona and I cried A LOT.
My favourite musical is Avenue Q. I can sing all of the songs word for word and I’m not even sorry.
I can cross stitch. I don’t do it much anymore but I learned as a kid through watching my Mum do it.
I’ve worn glasses since I was 6 years old but only switched to contact lenses when I was 22.
When I’ve got the time, I love to do scrapbooking. It calms my anxiety and it’s a great way to look back on your best memories.
I achieved an A in A-level in Food Technology – but I can’t cook. I mainly blagged the A through coursework.
As a child I was severely frightened of Wallace and Gromit. Not so much Gromit – it was mainly Wallace. I’m not entirely sure why, but for some reason I’m alright with them now.
I really struggle with being left out of things. I get really hurt by it and read WAY to much into it.
When I was 14, I was obsessed with Ant and Dec’s movie Alien Autopsy. It was slated a fair bit by the critics, but I loved it so much and at one point I watched it every day. To be fair, I still love it.
Of course there’s more to a lot of these facts, but I wanted to put something together that was fairly short and to the point. If you’d like to know more about any of them, leave me a comment and perhaps I’ll put the full story in a future post!
