16 Facts You May Not Know About Me

The Open Home 398

It’s still the first month of the year so in honour of 2016 here are 16 things you may not know about me… enjoy!

  1. I have been a vegetarian since I was 11 years old – simply because I don’t like the texture and taste of most meat.
  2. I love a good murder mystery, Agatha Christie’s Poirot is my favourite.
  3. I talk about names a LOT. The meanings of them, why people choose them, what names go well together, etc
  4. I think all the best animals have big ears – donkeys, rabbits, elephants… I rest my case.
  5. I’m a geek and love the timey-wimey-ness of Doctor Who and kinda wish I lived in Hobbiton.
  6. Bats and crabs freak me out.
  7. I make a miserable shopping companion, my Mother will confirm this. MISERABLE!
  8. I don’t drink tea or coffee.
  9. My dream holiday destinations are New Zealand, Hawaii and Alaska.
  10. Autumn is my favourite season (and Summer my least favourite).
  11. I don’t wear black, I’m far too pale and look ill in it.
  12. My favourite Disney film is Tarzan.
  13. If you want to send me flowers I particularly like freesias and tulips.
  14. One day I want to get a British Bulldog and call him Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore.
  15. I have visited 20 European countries to date (and really must do a post about my favourites!)
  16. I’m an ISFJ for those of you who speak Myers Briggs.

Tell me something I may not know about you?

    A fellow geek! Yay! The question is, which Doctor? David Tennant is my choice!

    One fact about me… I have watched/followed Neighbours since soon after it began! I remember all the old characters… And was compared to one once!

      I did not know that Alex! 🙂 Used to watch Neighbours in my teens. Love that Susan Kennedy.

      And yes, David Tennant gets my vote although I did enjoy Matt Smith’s interpretation of the Dr too.

    I can’t think of one thing you don’t know about me. My life is an open book and I knew most of the things you listed

      You know me well mother. And I guess I know you as I did win the church Mother’s Day quiz all those years ago – if I remember rightly, I knew your favourite colour was green, you liked watching Poirot and eating baked beans!!

        All still correct. However did you know that if I’d had another daughter I liked the name Emily. Also after naming your brother Joel I did have a fleeting thought that maybe I should have called him Jake!!
