The wonderings, ponderings and other 'ings' of me. Lifestyle, review, news and opinion posts. Chic with a hint of sarcasm... hopefully!

Monday 31 March 2014


We used to do these as simple emails but it’s been a while so a blog post tag sounds like a good idea. Deep breath, and in we goes #BrutalHonesty!

1. What are you wearing?  Really?  Grey joggin bottoms, a maroon top and my father Christmas slippers.

2: Ever been in love? Properly? Yes once, puppy love? Twice!

3: Ever had a terrible breakup? Yeah cos most break ups are all sunshine and ice-cream! 
My first was pretty crappy, got sent home from my job (shop assistant) three days in a row for sitting on the floor and crying in front of customers.  Apparently being served by a snotty dribbly wreck of a girl doesn’t make for a pleasant retail experience, who knew?

4: How tall are you? 5’4 ish

I Like New York
 5: How much do you weigh? 10 stone something I think, I don’t believe in scales (not fish scales, those are real enough) 

6: Any tattoos? Yes my first one:  see blog post here…

7: Any piercings? Two lobe piercings on each ear and a belly button piercing that doesn’t get out as much as it used to.

8: OTP? I’m old so I had to look this up, (it’s One true Pairing, meaning your favourite combination of characters/couple in the 2 dimensional world
) erm erm Sheldon and Amy from Big Bang Theory maybe?

9: Favourite Show? Isn’t this like choosing a favourite child?  Sherlock, Big Bang Theory, Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, Sex and the City, Real Housewives of BH (I’ll just leave now shall I?) Vampire Diaries, the list is endless.

10: Favourite bands? Paramore, Haim are pretty cool, Lissie, Lana Del Rey (I know not a band but music none the less).  Kings of Leon and while I am new to them, am pretty stoked about seeing Pearl jam in July! Music in general is fab.

11: Something you miss? Safe travel.
I like the Sea
12: Favourite song? Oh COME ON! You may as well ask if I want to cut off my right or left arm? Grrrrr This is what makes us girls or Ride by Lana Del Rey, Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve, Unfinished Symphony by Massive attack. 

13: How old are you? 37

14: Zodiac sign? Capricorn

15: Quality you look for in a partner? Loyalty and comedy.

16: Favourite Quote? Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, look it up and watch the film, it’s a classic.

17: Favourite actor? Ryan (Gosling or Reynolds) or Sandra Bullock.

18: Favourite colour? Turquoise or purple.

19: Loud music or soft? Both and often, see answer 10.

20: Where do you go when you’re sad? My bed, shopping, for a bike ride, sometimes just the loo. Anywhere to be alone really.

21: How long does it take you to shower? Wow really?  #WhyThisQuestion? Well ok around 10/15 mins.

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? Between 20 mins and 3hrs depending on where I am going and what I can be bothered to organise myself into.  Style has become something I think more of as I’ve gotten older.  I used to hang around in my school uniform all evening when I had better things to do with my time (like climb trees or kiss boys) then worry about what to wear.
I Like Autumn
23: Ever been in a physical fight? Nope and I would be a massive wussbag if I ever found myself in that position I’m sure.

24: Turn on? Physical? Strong arms, smile, nice eyes. Personality? Integrity, humour, non-hypocrisy
25: Turn off? Physical? Bad breath.  Personality? Being overly into their own looks, bullies (physical or verbal, they both suck) ignorance, mean-spirited people that can’t be happy for others.

26: The reason I joined Blogger? I like the answer I saw on a different one of these recently ‘wanted to do a brain sneeze on the internet’! Basically I wanted to be able to write what I want when I wanted.  

27: Fears? Not being understood, people hating my writing or not finding it funny/heart-warming etc. my husband dying horribly in a massive car crash, flying isn’t a bowl of cherries for me either, there’s quite a few!

28: Last thing that made you cry? An (ongoing) problem with a ‘friend’ got to me.

29: Last time you said you loved someone? Last night. To my husband, he was quite surprised I can tell you.

30: Meaning behind your Blogger Name? I wanted it to represent something that’s integral to being me.  I have two sisters (guess where abouts I was born?).

31: Last book you read? Set This House in order by Matt Ruff, its bloody good!

32: The book you’re currently reading? None, I usually get disappointed quickly after a really good read so I take a little break.

33: Last show you watched? True Detective.

34: Last person you talked to on the phone? Some dude who ordered a book that hasn’t shown up.

35: The relationship between you and the person you last texted? One the said sisters (in q30). She’s really rather marvellous at being supportive and I’m very lucky she’s related to me!

36: Favourite food? Ooh this could take a while, hang on no it won’t, its cheese.  Any kind of cheese.  Cheese is the food of the Gods.

37: Place you want to visit? More of Italy, Canada and USA

38: Last place you were? Work.

39: Do you have a crush? Constantly, but only on famous (therefore not real) people!

40: Last time you kissed someone? My husband this morning.
41: Last time you were insulted? When that ‘friend’ I was talking about before (see q28) ignored my trying to sort things and has since gone a bit postal on me.

42: Favourite flavour of sweet? Caramel or butterscotch.

43: What instruments do you play? I used to play the recorder in school and can hit the triangle with pin-point accuracy.  

44: Favourite piece of jewellery? My diamond earrings from my sisters or wedding/engagement rings.

45: Last sport you played? Does Pilates count?  If not probably rounder’s, and probably when I was in school.

46: Last song you sang? Mean by Taylor Swift or one of the new ones on the Lissie album.

47: Favourite chat up line? Can I have your cold? 

48: Have you ever used it? No, and it wasn’t said to me, was said to a friend by the man that was to be her husband.  They have a baby on the way now, it’s all fairy-tale endings in my world!

49: Last time you hung out with anyone? Not counting the man that I vowed to spend my life hanging out with, at a gig (Band of Skulls)  in London.

50: Who should answer these questions next? I’m going to leave this as an open tag :) If you read this you are tagged. Yes, you.

If you’ve been tagged you must complete all the questions and then tag someone or someone’s if you please. To let them know that they have been tagged please leave them a note on their most recent post to go to your blog to find out what to do.
