25 Random Facts Tag

I’ve been tagged for the 25 Random Facts Tag by Amani – thank you lovely!


One recently visited our town – scary!!

1) I have an irrational fear of carousels – they scare the shit out of me!

2) I won’t open a packet of crisps upside down for fear of badluck.

3) When I was a kid I was addicted to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. So much so that Dad taped over the film so he wouldn’t have to watch it again!

4) When I was a child, Michael Buerk was my fancy man! Or so I’ve been told – whenever he presented th lunchtime news I would sit in front if the telly and not move until he’d finished!

5) Public speaking scares me – gives me cold sweats I can tell you!

6) I’m not a fashionable person but I really love watching the Top Model series. Currently watching ANTM series 21 – I’m totally loving Shei’s hairdo!

7) I once had pink hair, and purple hair. And yes whilst at my current job!

Pink hair!

9) If I had more time I would love to cook more.

10) I’m the first to admit that my parking skills are bad!

11) I will also admit that my mental arithmetic is shocking! (Just because I’m an accountant doesn’t mean I can count!

12) I still have my childhood teddies – Pwgin, Pwgina and Peter.

13) Whilst we’re on the subject of languages – I’m bilingual with Welsh being my first language.

14) I have two beautiful girls!

15) And I can categorically say that they are more than enough! There is ok way I’m going through childbirth and that newborn phase ever again!

16) I’m not a celebrity stalker but I have met a few – I may have mentioned that I met a certain Tom Hanks? And Mark Webber (twice), Stephen Gately, Robert Lindsay, Pam Ferris, The League of Gentlemen…

17) I grew up with my Taid, Dad and my dog Jimmy Jones.

22) I’ve not read a book in over a year and a half.

    I have glasses too, for the same reason :)) The bears look so cute, I use to have a lot of stuffed animals at home, but when I moved (from Romania) they didn’t fit in the car, so I had to leave them behind. I would love to get them back, but I can’t justify a 6000 miles round trip to get them :))

      Honestly couldn’t see a thing without my glasses! Should really buy a spare pair really. Wow yes a 6000 mile round trip would be a tad excessive for stuffed animals!

    Funilly I was really obsessed with the newer adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I saw it in the cinema 11 times! Though I actually remember seeing the earlier version when I was really young for the first time and getting so scared to the point where my mum had to turn it off haha

      I’ve not seen the new version from start to finish. I find Johnny Depp to be mildly disturbing in it!! The original version does get scary when the boat goes through the tunnel I must admit!

    I love that you speak welsh, I didn’t know that! I did French A level too. I got a B though, was 1 mark off of an A. It still upsets me.

      Yeah pretty much have to speak Welsh in this county as education is done through Welsh. That is so gutting to have missed by 1 mark!!

    I tried to dye my hair pink once but you couldn’t even tell. Should have bleached it first! And the time I tried to dye it blue it went green :-/ My sister is a natural blonde and at one point she had rainbow streaks! So unfair!

      Blondes have more fun huh?! Would love to have rainbow streaks but I don’t think my hair could handle it now
