A-Z of Me

Whilst having my daily read of blogs I stumbled across this little challenge on Louise's Blog and thought I'd give it a little go. I'd love it if any of you have done it and would link me up for a little read.

Age: 20

Bed Size: Double! And yes I like to sleep in the middle when I am on my lonesome, OH YEAH!

Chore you hate: Ironing, its not that I hate it, its just that I take hours to do a couple of items, because I get all pedantic :/

Dogs: I have 3 border terriers. Maisy who is 13 years old, Harvey who is 8 years old and Murphy who is about 6 years old. We originally had Harvey but our other dog Toby died so we needed to get another dog quick as Harvey was pining that bad. So we ended up getting Maisy from some old people who didn't want her anymore, which I don't understand why! As she is such a sweetie. And well before we knew it Maisy was pregnant with 8 puppies, and thats how we ended up with Murphy.

L-R Maisy, Harvey, Murphy

Essential start to the day: My breakfast, I genuinely cannot function until I have got some food inside my belly. 

Favourite colour: Purple and Teal

Gold or silver: It depends on what I'm wearing really, so I don't really have a preference.

Height: 5'6

Instruments you play: Sadly none these days. I used to play the clarinet for about 4 years, and also played a bit of the piano.

Job title: At the moment I am working as a Secretary at an Estate Agents. However, I am leaving here on the 2nd November for my new job as a HR Assistant. And eeeee I am so excited!!

Kids: None and I don't plan on having any as of yet.

Live: I live in the South of England.

Mother's name: Teresa

Nicknames: Bex, Betty, Turnip.

Overnight hospital stays: Only one that I can remember when I was 15 to have my tonsils out. Worse experience of my life as the stitching came open afterwards :/ Not pretty!!

Pet peeves: I genuinely cannot abide noisy and messy eaters. Guys who choose to go out with girls that are about 5 years younger than them when they are around their 20's!! People without manners, inconsiderate and maniac drivers! Biting nails, the sound of peoples teeth banging together.Cutting finger nails (makes me gag, which I swear isn't normal)

Quote from a movie: "Hakuna Matata; what a wonderful phrase. Hakuna Matata; it aint no passing craze. It means no worries, for the rest of your days" Lion King <3

Right or left-handed: Right.

Stores you love: This tends to hop between, but its usually H& M, Zara, New Look, River Island, Topshop, Urban Outfitters. But I also like those little boutique shops where you can pick up something a bit different from those mainstream stores.

Time you wake up: I tend to like to wake up at 7am, as for some reason the longer I sleep in the morning the sleepier I am for the rest of the day. However, I have to get at least 8 hours, or else I don't function properly.

Underwear: Apparently I have an underwear obsession! I love pretty underwear, especially French knickers.

Vegetable you hate: Brussel sprouts, carrots, cucumber.

What makes you run late: I am one of those people that cannot abide being late. But the only reason I am normally late is because of Jake who is so ridiculously unorganised!

Xrays you've had: I have had about 3 on chest and I've had an MRI scan on my brain, which was one strange experience.

Yummy food you make: Cupcakes, any kind of cakey thing, deserts, pasta dishes, curry!

Oreo Chocolate Brownies, Cupcakes, Heart Fairy Cakes, My Brothers 18th Birthday Cake

Zoo animals: Oh god I am such a major animal lover of all kinds. But if I have to choose then it would definitely be a tiger and a giraffe

  1. Your dogs are all so cute. It annoys me when pet owners are happy to give their pets away because they're bored of them or they find them an inconvenience. At least he came to a much better home! MRI scans are horrible, and I love tigers and giraffes, too :)

    1. Aw thank you Louise :) I love them to bits! And they are aren't they, its a weird feeling being in that tube for an MRI scan. xx

  2. Great idea and it's a good way to get to know someone a bit better. I've had my tonsils out. Was pretty painful but cant even begin to imagine the stiching coming open!! OUCH!! Hate noisy eaters too!!

  5. I also need 8 hours sleep at night in order to function! I'm always punctual, and usually early to everything, I hate to wait, even half an hour it's kinda pissed me off ;D
