25 Random Things About Me

Many thanks to Kate at Bibliophile Book Club for tagging me in this fun task. I have to say it’s a great way for everyone to find out more about the person behind the blog, so lets get started.

1. What is your middle name? 

My middle name is Louise

2. What is your favourite drink?

I actually drink mainly water, apart from alcohol that is and when it comes to alcohol my favourites would have to be either rose wine and Bulmers cider the red one.

3. What is your favourite song at the moment?

I absolutely love Love Yourself by Justin Bieber which was written by Ed Sheeran. It is a great song.

4. What is your favourite food?

Now this is a tough one as I love food, my favourite meal would have to be steak and kidney puddings with chunky chips and mushy peas. I am also rather partial to wine gums and of course chocolate.

5. What is the last thing you bought?

The last thing I bought was some meat from the local butchers near where I work.

6. Favourite book of all time?

There is no way I can choose, sorry.

7. Favourite Colour?

Has to be black, I tend to always go for dark colours.

8. Do you have any pets?

Yes, we have an english springer spaniel called Woody who is 8 years old and 4 budgies called Chip N Dale, Rio and Snowy.

9. Favourite Perfume?

The one I have worn for longest has to be Poeme by Lancome.


10. Favourite Holiday?

The first time we ever went to Luxor in Egypt is one of my favourite holidays as I fell hook, line and sinker for the country and the people there. It’s an amazing place that is steeped in history and have been many times.

11. Are you married?

Yes, I have been happily married to my husband Ian for 15 years now.


12. Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?

I honestly couldn’t tell you exactly how many but it has been lots of times.

13. Do you speak any other language?

Sadly no only English. I did try learning Arabic as we have been so many times to Egypt and even bought a Rosetta Stone disc but unfortunately I’ve not really got anywhere with it.

14. How many siblings do you have?

I have one older brother called Simon.

15. What is your favourite store?

Would have to be somewhere like Waterstones or Paperchase as they sell my two favourite things, books and stationery.

16. Favourite restaurant?

We tend to go to Kashmiri Aroma which is an indian restaurant. It’s one we go to quite often though I love all types of different food.

17. When was the last time you cried?

I literally cry at everything but the last time was on the 26th of November when I read the ending of The Girls From See Saw Lane by Sandy Taylor.

18. Favourite Blog?

Can I say my own 😉 only kidding, this is another one I struggle to narrow it down as I follow quite a lot of blogs and they are all great. As I can’t choose just one I will give a shout out to my fellow #blogsquad friends who are:

Bibliophile Book Club

Crime Book Junkie

Relax and Read Book Reviews

19. Favourite Movie?

OMG another really tough one, I love lots of films. I suppose one that always has fond memories for me is The Sound Of Music. It’s one that always used to be on at Christmas and something we always used to watch as a family.

20. Favourite TV show?

Has to be The Walking Dead, amazing show.

21. PC or Mac?

I use both and enjoy both for different reasons.

22. What phone do you have?

An Iphone 5 something or other, not right into technology so couldn’t tell you which exact model it is.

23. What’s your favourite pastime? 

Reading of course duh!

24. Can you cook?

Well I like to think I can but I very much doubt that my husband and children would agree with me.

25. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

I have had my ears pierced twice and I used to have my belly button pierced also but it never healed properly so took it out. I also have two tattoos, one on my wrist with my childrens names in Japanese and also a butterfly on my foot.
