20 Random Facts About Me

To be honest, this is a bit of a filler post as I’ve really not been feeling well for the last couple of weeks. I haven’t really been able to my shit together properly with being organised, getting words written and photos taken and edited πŸ™ So I thought instead of not posting at all, it’d be nice for you all to get to know me a little bit better πŸ™‚

These are quite often the kinds of posts I love the most πŸ˜€ So here are 20 little random little facts about me; some you might know already, some you might not!

  1. I’m 5 foot 7 which seems to surprise a lot of people, as they always think I’m going to be a lot shorter than that!
  2. I’ve had my septum pierced for about 5 years but I rarely wear anything except a keeper in it anymore as it’s a pain to take in and out for work πŸ™
  3. I love grey; it’s probably my favourite colour πŸ™‚
  4. Apart from cats, my favourite animals are stags/deer and otters.
  5. I’ve had a variety of jobs ranging from a cashier in a bank (Natwest), an elf in Santa’s Grotto, a science lab technician in a school and working in the gift shop at the Isle of Wight steam railway!
  6. If I could only eat one savoury food forever, it would have to be pasta! I absolutely love any kind (plus I can sneak in other foods with a spag bol or a carbonara!!)

  8. It took my two attempts to pass my driving test but I passed my theory first time with 100% πŸ˜€
  9. I’ve walked the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge (and back) and it took me a good couple of hours.

  2. sitting in cafes with coffee and cake watching the world go by is one of my favourite things too! Especially if it’s raining out too! I *really* hope to see a blog from you soon with pastel peach hair – that sounds amazing! I’m sure you’d look gorgeous with it!

  3. Aww poor J, a he got his woman in the end! Oh I love pasta, I’d quite happily eat that for the rest of my life. I’m 5ft 7 and a half, people always think I’m shorter.
    Random facts about me, I used to assist for a drag racing team at Santa Pod and the only shoes I’d wear when I was 18 were DMs, they went with everything πŸ™‚
