Just for a bit of fun and so you can get to know me a bit better here’s 20 random facts about me:
1. I have 8 tattoos
I got my first one for my 18th birthday, 3 stars on my left wrist. Soon after that I had the itch for more, I was told they are addictive, very very true. Now I have 8 but they are only small ish and in places where they are easily hidden.
2. I love the smell of coffee, yet hate the taste
I do sometimes randomly unscrew the coffee canister and just sniff, ooh it smells good. I just couldn’t make myself a cup of coffee, blergh! Having said that, I do love Starbucks coffee frapps and I do occasionally enjoy a caramel macchiato or latte (depending on which coffee shop it is, they all have different names for these drinks). I’m a bit strange like that.
3. My middle name is Anne
That makes me Rebecca Anne. Does anybody actually like their name?
4. My favourite music is pop and R&B
Back in the day I loved nothing more than your typical cheesy boy bands/girl bands. Blue was my favourite, I had all their albums, bedding, towel, my room was covered in posters and slightly embarrassing, but was so was my locker at school! I even had their books, mugs, everything! Moved on slightly now to Rihanna who I have seen in concert twice, amazing! I also love a bit of Drake and slightly embarrassing at my age but Justin Bieber, please don’t hate me! I’m totally the opposite to my other half who is into rock music, not my cuppa tea at all.
5. My favourite ever take away meal would have to be Indian
Curry curry curry! I’ll order either chicken korma or chicken curry but ask that it be slightly hotter than usual (I like a bit of heat but not anything too hot), boiled rice (which me and the other half usually share) and plain naan. I love the mango chutney dip that comes with the poppadum’s, yum yum.
6. I’m not a morning person
Especially when Fletcher wakes up full of beans before 5am, e v e r y m o r n i n g.
7. I have one cuppa tea a day
Every morning as soon as I get up. I cannot function without my morning cuppa. Before I started the slimming world plan (that’s a separate post) I used to have 4 sugars in my tea. How bad is that! I only ever used to have 3/4 of a mug as well! Since doing slimming world I have since swapped to sweetener and I do still have 4 but I have a full ish mug now, so that’s ok right?! When you’re up before 5am, you need it!
8. I am addicted to bath bombs
I have a basket in my bedroom full of bath bombs! I do use them but they mostly just make my bedroom smell nice. Never let me loose in lush, omg!
9. I am a big Harry Potter fan
Who isn’t? I remember having the books as a kid but I didn’t like them so they just sat on my bookcase. It wasn’t until I got a bit older that I actually got into them and understood them a bit more. I’ve been to the studio twice, between me and my other half we have a little collection of memorabilia, our favourite including a duvet set. I actually dressed Fletcher up and did a little Harry Potter theme shoot.
10. I have been doing slimming world since January
As I mentioned before, this is a whole different post altogether so I won’t go into it too much now but I’ve lost just over 3 stone at the moment. Go momma! Bye bye baby weight.
11. My favourite season is Autumn/Winter
I cannot wait for summer to be done with already. I’ve already started my Autumn/Winter wardrobe and I cannot wait to get out my jumpers and uggs.
12. I am a little addicted to Yankee candles
I have a nice little collection building. My favourite one is the Christmas memories. It smells like cinnamon, its delish. I cannot wait to get it back out again. I’m dying to get my hands on the cappuccino one.
13. I don’t drive
I’ve had several lessons in the past and it’s just not for me. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Yes sometimes I wish I could drive so I could take Fletcher and Eden to more exciting places during the week but I think we manage Ok. We are always managing to get out and about.
14. I vacuum about 5 times a day
Yep. Fletcher and Eden just seem to malt crumbs and fluff and food. I don’t know where it comes from half of the time! Plus I like to keep the house clean and as tidy as it can be with two kids. I think I do an Ok job at that. That’s just given me an idea for another post, one day!
Ok, I am starting to struggle now with facts, 6 more to go. This is harder than it seems! Hmm….
15. I love Christmas
I have actually started my Christmas shopping! When you have two kids to buy for and quite a big family I like to start early and be organised. Then in December I can sit back and enjoy the build up to Christmas and watch everybody else running around doing their Christmas shopping. It’s great fun!
16. My favourite drink is Pepsi Max
I drink far too much of it, although I have cut back over the months.
17. I love reading
Recently brought a little book case, I was so excited. Ha ha. I’ve got a nice collection of books waiting to be read.
18. My favourite hobby though is photography
I’ve been into photography since I was about 18. It’s a dream of mine to one day turn it into a career and maybe own a little studio. You got to have dreams right? Whether my dream will come true I don’t know. I still have a lot to learn though and more importantly I need to believe in myself and that I can do it!
19. My favourite colour is grey
A little boring probably but I just love it! My whole house is practically grey, black and white. Fletcher and Eden’s room has a little colour, grey, blue and pink.
Ok, I am now sat here looking around the room trying to think of one more random fact…
20. My favourite possession (besides from Fletcher and Eden, if they count) is my iPhone
I would be lost without it. I am addicted to Instagram which I think ties in with my photography, I love taking photos and sharing them. I love being able to whip it out quickly and take photos of Fletcher and Eden. There’s also a game I am currently playing which I am a little addicted too at the moment. When you’re home alone with two little monsters all day it’s nice to see what’s going on in the world and talk to friends/family.
And I am done, finally! Phew. I hope I haven’t bored you all too much and didn’t lose you halfway through. I’d like to get to know you all better too so feel free to share some fun facts about you! 🙂
