7 Things About Me


How exciting!  Michelle from Mummy From the Heart has tagged me in this meme that is doing the rounds in blogdom!  I feel very honoured!  My part of the bargain is now to disclose seven things about me. I am quite a no-holds barred blogger in a few of my previous posts and have disclosed some of my deepest, darkest secrets already.  So I am going to think really hard to pull out some real random facts.  Here goes:

1:  I am secretly addicted to spoof movies...think Meet the Spartans, Scary Movie, Not Another Teen Movie, Disaster Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie et al!  I know I shouldn't admit to this.  I cannot help that they simply tickle my funny bone :)  I'll watch the Oscars and nod approvingly at this year's nominations, but inwardly I'm quoting "Yo Momma..." comments.

2:  I am a dedicated vegetarian but I sometimes get cravings for giblets *hangs head in shame*  Don't understand this one at all.  Think it stems back to childhood and my sister daring me to eat the Parson's Nose for a tenner.

3:  I have made a plan in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse.  Weapons of choice, places to hide etc.  I'll be prepared and immerge as King of the Post Apocalyptic World.

4:  I have an addictive/obsessive personality.  I've had to give up alcohol and caffiene due to my over indulgences.  I'll consume a whole cake/tin of Heroes/selection box/loaf of bread  in one sitting. However, if I go on a diet I get obsessed with that too and end up digesting my own internal organs through starvation.  I can't read one chapter of a book...I have to read the entire book. My family have gone hungry because of this one!  Social media is my new obsession...I'm staying a bit distant from the Twitter'll be a slippery slope.  If you see me there, slap my wrist.

5:  When I was at school, a lad wrote a smutty limerick about my antics and left it in my history book and it got handed in.  The teacher marked it *shame*

6:  I have been on Concorde.  I won a 5* luxury holiday to Paris.  If you've seen me and my husband we don't move in the circles of people who fly first class and stay in hotels with chandeliers in the bedrooms.  We are jean wearing, misbehaving and not really grown up. We laugh at toilet humour and can't take pretentions seriously.  Add to this that I am travel sick. So there was a Supersonic Jet filled with posh people quaffing the free Champagne, while I sat there whinging that I felt sick and trying to amuse myself as a distraction.  I can't imagine who the posh people thought we were and why we were on the flight.  ~I like to think they thought we were rock stars :)

7:  I sang "Fame" at my sister's wedding last year, flanked by my own flash mob doing a formation dance that I choreographed.  I was so nervous I actually wet myself a little bit in terror, but I did it.  It's her first wedding anniversary in February...I want to top it!

Now to tag some other lovely blog peeps so we can find out their seven things!

  1. Haha. You sound just the same as me.

    I'd sit in the middle of a concorde laughing at my hubby who said something about a willy or a cleft. I'm such a child.

    And yay for a plan for the zombie apocalypse. If *When* it happens, I'll be a survivor too. Except I'd keep one as a pet. xx

  2. Weapons of choice, seasickness, boneless box and keep you away from the pepsi max. Proud to say I know all these things and think it only makes you more special. Love you.XXX

  3. There's nothing wrong with toilet humour ;o)
    Another Mummy who's had babies in each decade of her life, although having only just turned 40 I'm not sure if I'll be having anymore.
    Nice to meet you!

  4. Haha, a great list! I think we'd get along - big toilet humour fan here too. I'm such a big kid. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I've taken your followers up to 80 now :) xx

  5. Fab, I bet they did think you were rock stars!

    I love the idea of you singing fame at your friends wedding. I sang at a friends wedding and we had a ball!

    Thanks for playing along. Mich x

  6. My sister would have cried if I sang at her wedding :)

  7. Well, you clearly ARE a rock star (and a choreographer to boot). Otherwise you wouldn't have been invited to sing Fame at your sister's wedding.

    Be proud...revel in toilet humour, spoof movies, and eating whole packets of biscuits!

    Great list!


  8. What a fantastic list. I love the Zombie Apocalypse plan :)

  9. Mum, I am afraid to say that number 1 doesn't count. You are by NO MEANS 'secretly' addicted to spoof films, particularly any involving toilet humour!! xxx

  10. There's nothing wrong with toilet humour ;o)
    Another Mummy who's had babies in each decade of her life, although having only just turned 40 I'm not sure if I'll be having anymore.
    Nice to meet you!
