Welcome and Hello!

I thought i’d make my first blog post something interesting and provide you with a little bit of information about my at the same time. I saw a challenge online to list one fact about yourself for each letter of the alphabet so here you go:

  • Animals – I currently have two rescue cats but always had horses when I was younger
  • Bananas – I’m very particular about the colour of my bananas. I don’t like them too green but the moment they start to get brown spots they are too far gone for me – the goldilocks of bananas
  • Children – we do not have any children and at almost 36 I suspect that we may not have any. I think we are both a little too selfish to have children
  • Diamonds – Love them. Simple. And I’ve got a few of them
  • Elizabeth – if I were to have children and had a little girl this would be my favourite girl’s name. It was my grandmother’s name and also that of the Queen
  • Food – I love food (hence why I’m overweight!) but I think it is more the process and ritual of actually eating as opposed to the feeling afterwards
  • Golf – surprisingly I really enjoy watching golf on the TV. I’d never seen it before I met my husband but love it now. Plus he plays golf so it helps me understand what he’s talking about
  • Hair – I’ve been growing my hair for about the last three years and it is now getting very long. Now the weather is getting a little warmer I do think about cutting it shorter as long hair makes me hotter but this happens each year and I don’t cut it off.
  • iPhone – I love my phone and would never consider moving away from Apple for a mobile phone
  • Jewish – I am a non-practising Jew. My husband isn’t and my family don’t live local to me hence the non-practising bit
  • Kindle – I think the invention of the kindle was a genius idea. It somehow feels reassuring to know I have 500 books in my bag with me all the time
  • Language – I currently only speak my mother tongue (English) but I am attempting to learn Spanish
  • Married – I have been married for 12 years and was 23 when I got married
  • New York – somewhere I’ve been twice with my husband. The first time was September 2000 and then we were there to see if 2015
  • Opera – I enjoy listening to all sorts of music but I do like to listen to opera when I’m studying or trying to concentrate at work
  • Parents – my parents are still very happily married. I don’t see enough of them as they live 200 miles away
  • Queen – I’m a big fan of the Queen and am fascinated by her life. I love watching TV programmes and reading books about her and her life
  • Roulette – I love to gamble and this is definitely my favourite game to play in the casino
  • Siblings – I have just one sister who is three years younger than me
  • Tardiness – I hate people who are late. I would rather be an hour early than one minute late
  • Unpacking – I have no problem with packing because I’m making everything neat and I’m getting ready for going away however I have been known to take a week to unpack. Obviously dirty clothes go in the wash but I just end up leaving the clean stuff in the bag or case!
  • Vegas – I’ve been twice and hubby has been three times and we love it. We love to gamble and just love the 24 hour lifestyle
  • Weight – I am overweight but am trying hard to remedy that
  • X-ray – I once had half my body x-rayed after having an accident as a child where I swallowed a tooth – they wanted to check where it was. Turned out I’d not actually swallowed it!
  • Yoga – I’ve always wanted to try this but am too embarrassed to go to a class and plus I’m not very bendy at all
  • Zombie – whilst I wouldn’t say I’m normally a fan of zombie films/TV, I absolutely love The Walking Dead – best cliff-hanger I’ve seen in a very long time and I cannot wait for the next season

    What a creative way to introduce yourself! I am also a horrible unpacker. I never want the vacation to end 🙂
