Ok so it’s almost midnight as I’m writing this and although I’m super tired and my daughter has finally fallen asleep, my insomnia is being a twat! So I went through some blogs/google searches and found some random questions to answer for something more constructive to do rather than playing Sims FreePlay on my phone. So here we go, another random Q&A. Some of these questions are actually kinda deep so hopefully they’ll be somewhat interesting.
What are your hobbies?
At the moment I’d say hand embroidery. I used to do a lot of writing but my hand can’t physically cope with it anymore, and I’ve kinda lost my creative side when it comes to drawing so haven’t done that in ages either.
Do you have any pets?
Nope. Part of me would love to have a cat again, but 1. I hate having to clean out litter trays and 2. It makes it more difficult when it comes to things like Christmas where I stay at my mums. I’m actually thinking once my daughter is older of getting a nice fish tank as I find watching fish quite relaxing fun fact it’s actually something that a lot of people with depression finds eases their mind and relaxes them.
Do you have any siblings?
Nope no blood related siblings, but I have Paul who calls me his little sister, and my friend Sophie is probably the closest I’ve had to a sister.
What did you want to be when you grow up?
I wanted to be a vet when I was a kid as I loved watching a tv show presented by Rolf Harris called Animal Hospital.
Who was your first best friend?
Probably Makayla, we were friends from around the age of 4/5. Then she moved back to Canada in the second to last year of junior school which I hated 😦
How tall are you?
I am 5ft 9. Though I swear I’m shrinking I don’t feel as tall anymore which sounds odd I know. Maybe I’m just slouching more lol
What was your favorite/worst subject in High School?
My favourite and best subject grades wise was English, I actually took my English Literature GCSE exam a year early too. Worst was Technology purely because I hated the teacher and didn’t have any friends in the class. Grade wise I was worst at Maths and Geography.
What would you name your future children?
For a boy I like Toby, Cain, Clayne, and Lex. Girl I like Eponine, Trixie, Elody, and Willow.
What Sports do you play/Have you played?
Not many people know, but I used to play indoor bowls. And I did genuinely enjoy it too I’d love to play again. As an adult I was on the pool team for the pub I worked at which again I really enjoyed.
Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
Joe Sugg, Zoe Sugg, Jade Billington, and Safiya Nygaard are my top 4.
How many Boyfriends have you had?
I don’t really know to be honest as some relationships only lasted like a month.
Can you still remember the names of everyone you’ve ever slept with?
Yes I can, and kinda shamefully there’s a fair amount to remember so it’s impressive. Just wanna add that I would usually only ‘sleep around’ when going through a breakdown just for a sense of being wanted, and most the time I’d hate myself after. I wasn’t a slag in the sense of having a different bloke every week.
How would you describe your fashion sense?
I’ve never been someone who follows trends, I just wear whatever I feel like wearing and whatever I’m most comfortable in that day.
What phone do you have?
I have a rose gold iPhone SE
Relationship with your parents
If you had asked me this when I was a teenager, I would have said I pretty much have no relationship with my mum as we clashed badly about 90% of the time, but now we’re really close again and more chilled out with each other. My dad, well he emails and texts me every now and again and in the past couple of years he’s started sending Xmas and birthday cards but I wouldn’t say we have a proper father and daughter relationship…I haven’t seen him since I was 14 for a start. But we get along ok and growing up I realised why he is how he is because of a really shitty upbringing he had and the sorta anger towards him went away.
Tell us one of your bad habits
Does worrying too much count as a bad habit? If nervous I tend to bounce my leg up and down or kinda shake my foot if my legs are crossed. I also nervously pick at my fingers where you get ‘hang nails’ which is pretty painful, aswell as biting the inside of my lip/cheek.
My closest blogging friend
Well my friend Sophie has a blog though she hasn’t posted in ages and recently I’ve made friends with a guy called Dan who writes some really good posts about his personal experiences on terrible nights out etc which I love reading.
Someone famous I’d date
Someone around my age would be Joe Sugg. Older would be…. Iwan Thomas I think.
Im 24 and still sleep with a nightlight because I’m scared of the dark.
3 Things that annoy me easily
Noisy/sloppy/messy eaters. People who are rude with no manners. Inconsiderate people that do things like play their music too loud or unnecessarily Rev engines late at night.
My celebrity crush
I’ve got a fair few to be honest lol and it seems the older I get, the older the men are! Though saying that even as a kid I fancied David Bowie and Johnny Depp so maybe I’ve always subconsciously liked older men lol Iwan Thomas, Richard E Grant and Hugh Jackman are the 3 newest ones on my list though.
Number of kids You want
Ive got one already, and if I didn’t have any more I’d still be perfectly happy just with her. I wouldn’t want more than 3 though that is my absolute limit and I’d rather if I were to have a second kid, wait til my daughter is maybe around 6-7 years old because she’d be less dependent in a sense so would make it easier with a baby in the mix.
Do You smoke/drink
Nope. The last time I had alcohol was Christmas Day I had a small amount of Baileys. I just don’t see the point in drinking alone when I’ve got my daughter to care for.
What’s the worst and best thing about being female?
Best thing is probably being able to have children, it’s amazing what the female body can do. Worst thing is definitely periods! They’re painful, messy, and make you feel like absolute shit.
Who’s the worst guest you’ve had in your house and what did they do?
Probably when I lived at the YMCA with my then boyfriend Rhys, his friends would come over and just be super disrespectful and not tidy up after themselves aswell as just helping them self to MY food without asking.
What is the most unusual fear you have?
Mirrors and low flying aircraft. I can use a mirror to do my makeup in or check if I look alright but if I was sat with one just in front of me or just stood staring into one I Panic majorly. Low flying aircraft scares the shit outta me every time, I just have visions of planets crashing through my house.
What’s the best gag gift you’ve ever seen or gotten?
A toy toaster when I was about 13/14 I think it was. Basically when I was 11 I asked my mum how to make toast, and I didn’t know where the bread went in the toaster…I then thought I had to put butter on it first. I stupidly told my friends and they found it hilarious so they got me a toy toaster and wrote out instructions on how to make toast.
What piece of culture or trend has died out, but you would like to see it make a comeback?
Self respect, manners, having a sense of humour! Everyone is too easily offended these days it’s ridiculous
What’s the biggest lie that someone told you?
That they love me/will always be there for me. There’s a very very select few that I know didn’t lie when they said it, but there are more who did.
What’s the most unpleasant sounding word?
I hate even typing it, proper makes me gag and feel yuck…the word I HATE is ‘moist’.
What’s the most pleasing accent to hear your language spoken with?
I absolutely love old cockney accents like Danny Dyer has, though I also like well spoken not snobby posh just polite like Tom Read Wilson I could listen to him all day. I also like some Geordie accents, and some Irish.
What’s the most ridiculous thing you have convinced someone is true?
There’s been a few! One was that I paint/draw my tattoos on every day. Ive convinced some idiots that I’m Ashley Simpson, also Amy Lee, and Avril Lavignes sister. I did once convince a complete idiot at the pub that I was transgender which was hilarious as he was obsessed with me and when I told him that he didn’t quite know what to say but at least he backed off!
What’s surprising about you?
Erm…that I have a high knowledge of things to do with mental health, and that I’m a lot stronger than I look- even though I have twig like arms I can pack a pretty nasty punch if needs be.
What’s the most rage inducing thing you’ve had to make or put together?
A cot! When I was pregnant my then friend gave me a brand new flat pack cot that she had. It said in the instructions that it was a 2 man job but I had no one to help me so had to build it alone. Was so bloody awkward! I had to use my feet, balance stuff against my head while I was attaching bits…how on Earth I did it I don’t know.
Most people want to be wealthy for one reason or another. Why do you want to be wealthy? What would be the biggest benefit of being wealthy?
When people say money can’t buy happiness, they’re not 100% correct. I know for a fact that if I was wealthy I would be happier because I’d have no worries about having enough money to pay bills etc. I wouldn’t want flashy cars and a massive house etc I’d just wanna know that I wouldn’t have to worry about money anymore.
What’s the best thing you could tell someone to cheer them up when they are feeling down?
That’s all depending on the individual so can’t really answer that. When I was in senior school there was a girl who would often come to me if she was upset because she said I always made her feel better- I’d listen to her, give advice and then if she was still crying or started to cry I’d say “oh shit I’ve forgotten my umbrella do you mind telling your face to not rain all over me please” and it would just instantly make her laugh and kinda break the negative feeling.
What can you talk all day about?
Anything really I love philosophical conversations, mental health topics, crime topics, medical topics, just anything really
What’s weird about you?
Erm… my flat feet and hypermobility? I don’t know really lol went through years of being bullied being called a weirdo yet I don’t actually know what’s weird about me lol
What’s your reason for getting out of the bed in the morning?
Pure and simple, my daughter.
Have you ever worked retail?
Yes I have I’ve worked in a clothing store called Madhouse, B&Q, Claire’s Accessories, another clothing store called Punkyfish, and I worked a day at Holland And Barratts.
What do couples do that seriously annoys you?
Really sloppy noisy kissing in public! The noise just does my head in even if it’s on the tv lol
What single event has had the biggest impact on who you are?
The birth of my daughter. She saved me from myself really.
What makes a person truly evil? Are they born that way or did their environment make them that way?
This is something I’ve had many a debate about. Yes, some people are the way they are because of their upbringing and what’s around them. But I do whole heartedly believe that some people are just born fucking nasty as part of their personality. I HATE it when for example people try to say that kids who bully others have normally been bullied themselves, because it’s just making an excuse for their behaviour. In my opinion some people are just naturally nasty individuals that have no reason or excuse to be the way they are.
🔹immeamy, you’re you, and that’s the best way to be🔹
