3 Things About Yourself!

When I was younger I had an imaginary friend called George, one day we had an argument when travelling home from the beach, we were driving over the Severn Bridge at the time. I wound down the car window and threw him out and into the river from the moving car, and that was the end of my imaginary friend.

When people meet my brother and I they always assume that he’s the oldest but in truth he’s 27 months younger than me!

Since starting this blog I am amazed daily by how much I really enjoy writing and creating content, thinking and planning and am a little bit proud of where my blog has come in such a small amount of time.

Rory’s Five Questions

Which is your least favourite mode of transportation?

I don’t think I have a least favourite mode of transport, though the short distance busses that transport people around the local area were never particularly pleasant at one point and I’m really glad that I can drive rather than rely on them!

Why, oh why why why did the chicken cross the road?

He didn’t like the path he was on.

What is the stupidist thing you have ever done – voluntarily?

Used de-icer on the inside window screen of my VW Polo to defrost the window. It used to leak in the rain and come winter the condensation would freeze to the inside of the screen and it took agars to clear. The de-icer ran down into the air vents which, when turned on, turned the de-icer to vapour which I breathed in…. please don’t try that at home kids….

When you have left this planet, as in your life ends, what do you think is next ….?

I don’t know if anyone has seen The Good Place but… well, that. I’m sure I’d be Eleanor Shellstrop!

At what age do you think you actually became an adult?

Ummmmmmm…I’m still waiting to find that one out myself… the answer is a mystery!

My Five Questions

What is the biggest lesson you have learned in your time blogging?

If you could travel to any planet which one would it be and how would you get there?

Do you ever give your cars (or other transportation) names?

What’s your weirdest habit?

What are your 3 desert island must haves?

Three Things About Myself

  • I’ve recently gotten into gardening and have loads of ideas and plans for my garden!  I’m excited to see how they all come together!
  • I used to love a night out on the town, coming home in the early hours and not going to bed until the morning but now that is my worst idea of fun!
  • I’m forever thinking of things to do and my list seems to be getting longer and longer!  I am blaming Pinterest for this as I get inspired by so many things on there.

Mels questions

  • Do you have a kid’s toy you still love to play?

I have a lot of my old toys from when I was a kid but I don’t play with them anymore, they serve more as being ornaments now than toys.  I do still have my watercolour paint set from when Iw as a kid and still play around with that though!

  • What is your best character?

My best character would have to be Eeyore, even though he is pretty sad much of the time he always is included in what his friends are doing.

  • Which city/country you can’t wait to re-visit?

London!  My brother and his wife along with their children live there and whenever I visit they take me out to visit lots of different places!  London is such a fab city and there is so much to do and so much history there!

  • What part of your home that you’ve been dying to renovate?

At present, my garden, though I am working on that!  The other place I’m dying to renovate is my spare room though I am still undecided on what colour to paint it or what to do with it.

  • What junk food do you love so much?

Crisps and ice cream, though not both together!

My Questions

  • What is your favourite colour and why?
  • What one thing do you wish you had known before you started your blog?
  • What is your favourite time of the day?
  • If you could do anything for a day, what would it be?
  • What is your most favourite uncool clothing item?
