Blog On Ice Breaker

On May 1st I’m going to BlogOn MOSI and if truth be told I’m actually quite nervous! So to get to know everyone I’m going to go through everyone in the Great Big Blog On Icebreaker linky!

Hubby & I at Red Dwarf

Share a recent picture of you (if you are an anonymous blog, a drawing is fine)

If you had to describe yourself in three words…….
I HATE this question! I never know how to describe myself. I asked hubby and his answer was “sexy (pfft!), stroppy (true!) and geek”

How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I first started arpund 15 years ago but stopped and then continued off and on. This version has been going since August 2013 though.

What was your favourite TV program as a child?
Depends at what age! But I loved Thomas The Tank Engine, Tiny Toon Adventures and Raggy Dolls.

Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .
I’m bi-lingual. My first language is Welsh and it’s what I speak mostly. Fluent in Welsh and English and used to pretty good in French (have an A Level) but not spoken it in years!

What is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?
Oh I’m not very brave when it comes to food.

What was your biggest fashion faux pas?
No idea!

What are you pet peeves?
People not recycling! I hate seeing paper, cans and plastic in the bin at work because they could be recycled!!

Who would be your 3 perfect dinner party guests (dead or alive) and why?
I’ve posted about my dream dinner party previously!

If they made a movie of your life, what would it be about and which actor would play the part of you?
It’d be about the life of a geeky Chartered Accountant living and working in the beauty that is Snowdonia and would star Reese Witherspoon.

If you could live in any sitcom, which one would it be?
Friends of course! But I would much prefer to live on Ramsey Street (Neighbours).

Name a famous person you have met
Tom Hanks (yes really!), Mark Webber (1/2/3 times!), Sky F1 Team, Stephen Gately, The League of Gentlemen, Joe & Murr (Impractical Jokers), Robert Lindsay, Pam Ferris, Red Dwarf cast, Priscilla Musical cast

Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?
Hmmm tough one! Twitter possibly because I’m quite open and out there.

What picture do you have on lock screen on your phone / computer?
Photos of my girls <3

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
A few but I have two main pairs – black ankle boots for work and then my Skechers Shape Ups for day to day walking.

What period of time from the past would you most like to have lived?
Possibly back in the middle ages so I could see the castles in all their glory. But a hubby stated, we probably definitely would have died pretty quickly. We wouldn’t have survived without wi-fi, Chinese takeaway and Sky+!

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

What is your guilty pleasure?
TV shows such as the Top Model series. And chocolate although not at the moment since I’m #DeChox-ing!

What is your favourite tipple?
Tea! Or a can of fizzy Vimto. I don’t drink any alcohol so I’m on the sugary stuff instead!

If you had a magic lamp and a Genie, what would be your three wishes
Health, happiness and security for me & my family.

    Aww, recycling, yes I hate that too. It’s so easy and important to recycle. I’m more annoyed when I see parents with kids, because they should give a good example to the little ones.

      I collect recycling at work and take it home to make sure it’s being recycled! x

    Raggydolls!! <3 I have a Raggydolls t-shirt.

      Oh wow where did you get that? I love retro t-shirts. Care Bear ones especially! x

      • 11th April 2016 / 5:08 pm They have loads of cool retro stuff!

    I loved the raggydolls so much when I was younger, and I remember the moment I went to university (too long ago) when I realised I wouldn’t be able to get my daily dose of neighbours. In so many way it was terrible TERRIBLE TV but I definitely wanted to live on that street too!

    I wish I was back in North Wales sometimes. I lived in Bangor for 5 years – its pretty rough any ready but by far one of the most beautiful parts of the world I’ve seen.

      No no no Neighbours is FANTASTIC TV! Although it may have improved in the recent years! This last week is epic!

      I’m not too far from Bangor and I find it rather depressing! But it’s close to real nice places though! 😀 x
