Tag: 20 Random Facts About Me


I've really enjoyed reading this tag on other blogs, so I thought I'd join in (better late than never!) and share with you 20 random facts about me!

1. When my Mum went into labour with me, my Grandad got stopped by the police for speeding while taking her to the hospital. Once they realised what was happening, they got a police escort the rest of the way there!

2. When I was about 3 I unintentionally locked myself in my Gran's bathroom and couldn't open the lock. I then had to be freed by the fire brigade and when one of the firemen picked me up I did a wee on him. Oops!

3. The first thing I ever wanted to be when I was little was a nurse. Until I realised I couldn't deal with the blood!

4. I've always had really bad eyesight, but I hate wearing glasses and now wear contact lenses.

5. The first band I ever got into was The Spice Girls, I had all their singles and albums.

6. I like a real variety of music, from Ellie Goulding to the Foo Fighters, from Coheed and Cambria to One Direction!

7. My first car was a Vauxhall Corsa. I have now have a Volkswagen Polo.

8. I have three sisters and one brother. 

9. I think if I had to eat one meal forever it would be my boyfriend's Mum's roast dinner. NOM!

10. I have been with my amazing boyfriend for nearly nine years now, since we were 17. I don't think he's fed up with me yet...!

11. In March I will have been blogging for one whole year. It has gone so quickly!!

12. I can be quite quiet and shy at first, but once I get to know someone I won't stop talking!

13. I hate horror films and I refuse to watch them, much to the disappointment of my other half.

14. I love a good rom com, like 13 Going on 30, but I also love action and fantasy films, like Die Hard and The Avengers Assemble.

15. I am a Twilight fan. I'm not ashamed, I could re-read the books over and over again. 

16. Put a spider near me and I will freak out big time!

17. I love dogs and have grown up with lots of them around. Last year, my boyfriend and I got a springer spaniel puppy called Daisy and I absolutely adore her.

18. I have already decided on my honeymoon destination for when I get married - hello Italy!

19. I'm not at all religious and I really don't want to get married in a church.

20. I HATE tomato ketchup. And mayonnaise. Yes, many think me strange! Please tell me there are others who don't like them either?!

I hope you enjoyed reading this tag, please send me the link to yours!

  14. You had funny childhood :D I like One direction too. Sometimes I need a little rest from metal music :D and I don't judge any of pop groups or boybands and whatever they're called. I just listen what I like and that's my "problem" not everyone else's. Aaaand Italy is my dream. I hope it'll come true soon :)
