Riya who blogs over at World Of My Thoughts is new to me blog.  I found her blog after she responded to my Saturday Shout Out blog post.  Riya writes some beautiful poetry and shares some really lovely quotes among other things!  Head over and check her blog out!

I am always interested in getting to know my fellow bloggers and sharing things about myself though sometimes these things don’t always seem worth writing a full blog post for so it’s questionnaires like these that I really like for sharing the small things about myself!  Thank you, Riya for nominating me to take part!


First, 10 briefly explain questions:

  • What really makes you angry?

I believe in treating everyone fairly, it doesn’t matter what you earn, what your job is or what your title may be, fairness is something that we should all live by so I get pretty angry when people are treated unfairly for any reason.

  • If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This is a hard one as I tend to get bored with food things fairly quickly, however, I really enjoy toast with lime marmalade or marmite with a tomato and a coffee.

  • What is your biggest fear?

I have loads but my biggest is spiders.  I hate them.  I’m sure I have an inbuilt spider sensor as I can honestly tell when there is one in the room before it makes an appearance.  I have been known to phone my Mum to come and remove the offending creature for me as once I have seen a spider in the house I won’t enter that room until I know it has gone.

  • What has been your best moment this year?

I’ve had so many good moments this year and we are only just nearing the halfway point!  My best moments have to be hitting 300 followers on my blog which I am so amazed at!  And also learning that I love gardening and have been able to grow things!

  • If You Could Live Anywhere In The World For A Year, Where Would It Be?

I currently love where I live right now but the only thing I would change is that I’d like better weather!  If I could live anywhere though, I’d love to live on the coast and be able to wander down from my garden onto the beach every day!

  • How do you relieve stress?

I get stressed pretty easily and have to take medication for stress, anxiety and depression which helps, however, when I do start to feel my stress levels rise I practice mindfulness with the Calm app or Breathe on my Apple Watch.  If I am at home, sitting in silence and reading a good book can help too!

  • Would You Rather Go To Space Or To The Bottom Of The Ocean?

The bottom of the ocean!  I think there would be a lot more interesting animals and things to see in the depths of the sea than in space!

  • What’s your favourite season?

Each season holds a different love for me and I always look forward to the next one as the last starts to draw to a close but I’d have to say Spring and Autumn are my favourites.  Both are neither too hot or cold and both are the perfect times to wear layers and experiment with fashion a bit more.

  • What’re your favourite sports?

I’m not a very sporty person but when I was younger I was in several different sports groups at school –  cricket, basketball, netball and cross country running.  I did start running again but have recurring pain in my knee which has put a stop to that.  I’m not a fan of watching sport either.

  •  Did you like Riya’s blog?

I do 🙂

Now, 10 this or that questions:

What would you prefer?

  • Beach or mountains

Beach definitely, every time!

  • Ice cream or milkshakes

Icecream as you can always let it melt a bit to become milkshake!

  • New York or Paris

Paris, though I have never visited either!  Paris is closer to where I live and I’d love to go and see the museums there!

  • Ugly genius or Good looking stupid

Ugly genius!  I think too much emphasis is put on looks these days rather than intellect so I’d much rather be smart thinking than stupid!

  • Pizza or Burger

Pizza is one of my favourite food groups!!!  And you can mix and match your toppings to suit what you fancy so it can be different each time you have one!

  • Summer or Winter

Summer as I’m not the hugest fan of snow, being cold or rain.

  • City or Village

Village.  As much as I love going to the city (Cardiff, London, Bristol…) I’d much rather live in a quieter place and be able to travel into the city for day trips than live there 24/7.

  • Spring or Autumn

Hmmm… Autumn over Spring though I love each of them!  Autumn is when my Birthday is, and there is something magical about watching the leaves change colour, the scent of bonfires on the breeze and it’s when my hayfever seems to lessen.

  • Mathematics or Science

Science!  As it has got a bit of maths mixed with chemistry and physics thrown in!  it makes for a much more interesting subject than maths alone!

  • Train or Aeroplane

Train, though this is purely because I have never been on a plane.  And there is something romantic about the notion of taking a train somewhere…

Now, here are the friends whom I challenge to do this:

  1. Giggling Fattie
  2. Planet Simon
  3. A Guy Called Bloke
  4. Confusing Middle
  5. Therapy Bits
  6. Keep It Alive

For those who are not being mentioned above, you can also try the game with the same instructions. Feel free to enjoy this. But, make sure you mention me in your post, please
