Getting to know you: 11 questions

I'm not sure why I haven't done this sooner, but I'm guessing it is because I've been debating who I would pass this onto!!

11 Random Things
I have worn glasses since I was 11
I still live with my parents
I am an only child

I used to collect single releases in ALL formats. My vinyl collection is quite impressive.
I wish it was still 2004
The band I have seen the most live is Maximo Park, closely followed by the Futureheads
I have books signed by bands (Cooper Temple Clause, BRMC, Futureheads, Maximo Park)
I always carry a book with me
I want a tattoo but don't know what to get

My 11 Questions for the Bloggers Below:
1.  What is the last movie you’ve seen? What did you think of it?
Last film was possibly Twilight - Breaking Dawn as my Mam really want to go to see it. I've not read the books or seen any of the other films, so it didn't really make much sense to be honest!!

2.  What has been your fave holiday? My trip to New York in 2004 with my Mam and very good friend Jackie. I'd won a competition through a local band called the Futureheads, and got to see them, Franz Ferdinand and a band called the Delays in New York. We stayed at a 5* Hotel called the Paramount and it was blazing hot. I LOVED it

3.  Talking about holidays.. what is a place that you really want to visit? I'd love to go back to America, the likes of Washington, Boston, etc really appeal.

4.  Do you like to cook? What’s your ‘signature dish’? I love to do it, but never have the inspiration!! If someone asked me to cook something, I would. But having to decide? ooh, not good! I like making Risotto and Tuna Pasta Bake...

5.  Have you tried online dating? Any success?
Yes. No. I keep going back for more though.

6.  Are you a phone person? Talking on the phone I mean.
HATE IT! Even though I worked in a call centre for 2 years, I really really hate talking on the phone. Writing yes. In person, yes. Phone, NO

7.  If you could only shop clothes from one store for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
Tough call - I'm guessing it has to be a +fashion store? Probably SimplyBe, as they do staples really well. But wish I could say something like Cath Kidston or LadyVintage or Collectif

8.  Do you have many best friends or just one?
A number of very good friends

9.  Do you feel that you’re in your right career (or going towards one if you’re still studying)?
I feel like I'm in the right area, and would love to see how the private sector progresses for me.

10.  Are you a creative person? How does this come across? (Painting, photography, music.. whatever.)
I used to do Am Dram, I used to write "such bloody awful poetry". Now I express myself through my appearence, and hopefully, my writing. My job and Brownie Pack help with my creativity as well sometimes.

11.  Where is your happy place? Please describe it.
It is usually a mental place - It is TyneMouth Priory on the North Sea Coast, just where the Tyne meets the sea. When I first went there, there was a storm coming, so the sky was almost black. It was very atmospheric, but at the same time, very calming as we were the only people there. This was 10 years ago, and it still effects me.

11 Questions

I'm changing it to the Roman Numeral: II

So two questions I would like to ask?

Why do you blog - has this motive changed since you began?

What do you read blogs for? Has this changed since you began?

Tagging: Anyone who would like to answer my two questions :D

Picture: My work online photo - I was the only one to get a photo that was above waist, everyone else was shoulder and upwards!


  1. I LOVE that pic of you. I even clicked it to enlarge it...but what a shame it's only a small pic even then. You look utterly gorgeous, as you do in real life, of course.

    This post has made sense of a lot of things. Such as how come we never ended up speaking on the phone!! You could have just said, y'know...

    Anyway, just wanted to say this post is great and I am so glad I have you in my life <3 xxx

    1. Aww you always know how to say the right things don't ya!

      It's not something I like to admit - I just think that people hear the accent and make assumptions about me. I don't know why, just rather communicate through other means if I can!
