Liebster! (Part one)

I’ve said about the Liebster award before but have I managed to get around to the written bit? No. Why has life gotten so insane all of a sudden? So much so that i’m doing this quick update in my lunch break!

So 11 random things . . .


  1. Career wise its all in the family in my family . . . my mums family have all been in the furniture business since 1934 and I’ve even undertaken a furniture internship late last year for an online trading platform! Both my dad and Grandad have been/are electrians!
  2. My guilty pleasure is to watch Newlyweds with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey (and pretend that they never split up – they are forever that young in my mind!)
  3. I’ve named both cars that I have owned/own, my first a little, naughty Punto who will get her own post at sometime in the future. She was called Eleanor, after this guy they are just so damn amazing! and my second a Honda Civic is called The Doctor/Frankie after Dr Frank n Furter from the amazing Rocky Horror Picture show! I even named the boys two cars he has had since he’s known me (an old civic) -Daisy and his company car, Oscar. 
  4. After having named Joshes civic Daisy I’ve learnt never to emasculate a mans car he’ll never look at it in the same way again . . . (but that car was a Daisy!).
  5. I get a little known thing called “Stair Fright”. Basically I can’t walk down stairs without holding on and I have been known to get stuck half way down if I have to carry something and hold on. But after breaking my ankle going down a tiny step i’m beginning to think that that odd problem was for a reason . . .
  6. I used to make Harry Potter graphics for Harry Potter Fanfiction . . .
  7. If I’m excited about something I talk a hell of a lot, usually about nothing. Like last Saturday when I just chatted Josh’s ear off for our half hour drive to get the newbee (The Dr).
  8. I write elaborate emails to my grandparents making a short story incredibly long . . .
  9. I used to be my Great Nanna’s carer from about the age of 17 and my favorite story of her is when I was younger, of us rolling down her garden on wheeley garden stools. 
  10. In photos me and my mother look identical at this age, its like looking in a mirror the only difference being I have brown eyes, she has hazel and I have my dad’s nose but other than that identical! 
  11. I don’t wear heels when out with Josh because without them me and the boy are pretty much the same height – Twinsies!
