The British Tag

(I should note that the British flag is the Union Jack but since the Welsh flag is so much nicer I combined the two for the above image!)

I was reading John’s blog recently and he did this British Tag post which I just loved and had to take part in!

Question 1: How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars in your tea?
Oh wow I don’t know – too many probably! I’ll have one when I get up. I’ll have another when I get to work, probably 4 or 5 during the day and maybe one in the evening. So a total of about 8 maybe? No sugar and only a little milk.

Question 2: Favourite part of your roast?
Roast potatoes! And gravy! I LOVE gravy! Nothing beats Mam’s chicken dinner mind,

Question 3: Favourite dunking biscuit?
I don’t tend to dunk biccies in my tea because they tend to break and I don’t want soggy biccies in my tea! Although I will occasionally dunk a rich tea! Current favourite biscuits are Custard Creams though!



Question 4: Favourite quintessentially British past time?
Hmm… queueing?! Or drinking tea!

Question 5: Favourite word?
Moppins – this is a very local word for me, it’s Welsh and it means snowballs in my home town.

Question 6: Cockney rhyming slang?
I’m no good at this! but “Dog & Bone” = phone

Question 7: Favourite sweet?
Ooooo I’m currently into pear drops and wine gums! Mmmm mmmm!

Question 8: What would your pub be called?
Now there’s an interesting question! I actually cannot come up with a single name! Hubby suggested “The Ugly Duckling” because of Disney’s Tangled.

Question 9: No 1 British person?
Alan Rickman! 🙂 I don’t know why but that’s the first person that came to mind!

Question 10: Favourite shop/restaurant?
My favourite shop is a little local shop in Pwllheli called “Siop Eluned“. It’s an adorable little shop selling all sorts of cute little nick-nacks. They also do wedding flowers and stuff. The owners are lovely and I could spend all day in there! But mostly they sell old sweet shop favourites (like the pear drops) and I tend to go in there everyday to get some sweeties!

Question 11: What British song pops into your head?
Rule The World by Take That.

Question 12: Marmite – love it or hate it?
Ych! Hate it!

      Yes please play! The more the merrier! I also liked the name but not sure if it’s very original! Better than something like “The King’s Head” though!

        Pink! And yellow too. I love pear drops too though. These sweets always make me think of Albus Dumbledore now.
