The Get to Know Me a Little Tag

Thank you to Leona for tagging me! I love doing these as well as reading as it gives you an insight on the blogger, sometimes a little more personally than their usual posts. I tag who ever wants to do it, BUT on one condition...that you link your post below in the comments so I can check it out :P

1. Do you have a middle name?
Uhh. Yes. And I dislike telling people as those who find out via passport/licences etc always go on as if it's some mad, foreign name or something. It's Rhonda and it means 'good spear' of Welsh origin apparently. (One of the most awesome female MMA fighters goes by the same name so I'll take that!)

2. What was your favourite subject in school?
No idea. I can't remember that far back! In 6th form it was Photography obviously. 

3. What's your favourite drink?
Juice. Just blackcurrant juice. I don't drink that many different drinks and it's what I live off on a day to day basis. Although! I was extremely partial to a still Fanta from McDonalds until the beggars done away with it! Pft.

4.What's your favourite song at the moment?
My teenage self would hate this, but I rarely listen to music anymore. Especially anything new! I'll choose this.

5.What would you name your children?
The baby girl names I've liked in the past have all been used by family and friends already, including Ava and Evie, so I'm hesitant on sharing encase people 'steal' my ideas! However as it's highly unlikely that I will be able to stomach having a sprog within the next ten years so I suppose I may as well say! 
For a girl, I like Tia, Eden, Skyler and Willow and for a boy JJ (Jake Junior) obviously if it were Jake I had kids with or Elias, Lincoln and Brandon. 

6. Do you participate in any sports?
Not anymore! I did do Judo and Jiu Jitsu for a while, other than that I only like to walk and do the occasional aerobic dance work outs or yoga.

7. What's your favourite book?
Oh, this is a hard one. NOT. HARRY POTTER DUHHH.

8. What's your favourite colour?
Green. and brown. and pink...

9. What's your favourite animal?
All of them!!!!!

10. What's your favourite perfume?
Ed Hardy.

11. What's your favourite time of the year?
Summer. I'm such a cold person and even wore a cardigan and boots in the middle of the day, one year in Ibiza and so obviously love to be warm! I love the lighter nights meaning there is more time in the day to get things done and the nice weather to do those things. It makes dog walks and walks in general that little bit more enjoyable too. 

Ollld photo pre-tattoo's! (6/7 year ago?)

12. Have you been out of the country?
Yeah but not far. I have only visited Spain, France, Italy and Greece thus far. Including some of the off coast islands like the Balearics and thCanarys. 

13. Do you speak any other languages?
Ha. No. I wish I could be fluent in another language but alas I am old and it's harder to learn now. If I had a child I would try to teach them from an early age. I did do French and German in school so know the odd stuff and taught myself some Spainish when I was a young teen to use whilst on holiday but that's about it. 

14. Do you have any siblings?
Only child in daa house!

15. What's your favourite shop?
None really to be honest. I'm not a big shopper and never buy new clothes. Oh, actually I'll say the Disney shop as it's the only one I go into religiously when there is one around (and online).

16. What's your favourite food?
Plain pasta with cheese, and broccoli. Either together or separate - I'm not fussed.

17. What's your favourite movie?
Most Walt Disney Products with the only acception being Harry Potter. We have a huge DVD collection though and are just general movie fans in our house especially those with Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and the like. 

18. What are some of your favourite TV shows?
We don't watch TV alot but series I love are:
The Walking Dead
Flash Foward
Prison Break 
Sabrina the Teenage Witch 
and of course all my other Disney channel and Nickelodeon teen stuff that I watch on a weekly basis. 

19. What phone do you have?
A Samsung of some sort. I'm not entirely sure as to me as long as it calls and texts I'm not bothered!  

 20. How tall are you?
Just little. 5''4 ish? I don't really measure myself. 

21. Any pets?
You'll only not know this if you have never been here before and so I'll introduce you to my pets children, Baker and Bunny.  << Click it. Go on. Look at the cuteness!

22. Any kids?

23. If you weren't you, would you be your friend?
I think so. I'm a good friend, giving, helpful and caring. Although, maybe a little boring to be around seeing as I'm such a socially shy-away nerd.

I dunno ask my handful of real life friends...

24. What's the first thing you notice about someone?
I think it's their clothing as superficial as that sounds but I don't mean it in a degrading way, no, pretty much the opposite. For example, I prefer careless, down to earth and dressed for practicality and comfort whereas many girls my age are obsessed with the latest trends and looking their best at all times with heels and a full face of make up to walk the dog...I don't usually have much in common with the latter (exceptions may occur). I could never go for a guy in skinnys and a cardigan either...

25. What is your eye colour?

 26. Scary movies or happy endings?
Both. If the happy ending is of a romantic/ lovey dovey I'll have the scary movie instead though please. 

27. Favourite smells?
Vanilla, citrus and other scents from my candle wax tarts alongside a clean house.

28. Do you have any special talents?
None whatsoever.

29. Where were you born?
Wansbeck hospital, Ashington, Northumberland. 

30. What are your hobbies?
Being an animal Mammy, nature and bird watching/photography, being a Disney obsessor and of course blogging. 


  1. My friend has that middle name! I always thought it was pretty cool. I also love films with those actors in, any comedy film with either Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughan, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel or Adam Sandler are massive winners for me!x

    1. Thanks again for tagging me.
      No way?! I've never heard of anyone, except that fighter and my aunty, with that name.
      Best actors! x

  2. Thanks for including me Danielle - I've just put my post up now ^.^

  3. Only getting round to reading this post now - and it definitely doesn't disappoint! I actually can't believe you don't listen to music anymore either, I thought it was something that only happened to me! I just personally couldn't be bothered keeping up to date with everything haha

    And look at you in the sea with your hot bod! ;) That's a gorgeous pic! And btw, I totally have the girls name "Evie" picked out for any future kids I had, because not only did it remind me of the pokemon Eevee ^_^, but it was such a cute wee name! And ahhhh this post is just perfect altogether <3

    Claire xo

    1. Ah thats good then, I'm not just a boring old fart when kids have music on and I'm like 'what on earth is that?! haha

      And hot bod? Pfffttt hahah Thanks :P
      Yes! Pokemon is why I liked it... oh I'm not just a weirdo yey.


  4. I like your middle name.
    My brother in law always says that my baby looks like Rhonda the fighter.
    I think I want bunnies. Yours are so cute! I have two kids though-same thing, right? :)
    Great post! I love getting to know the blogger behind the blog.

    1. Thanks :) I used to hate it but it's grown on me and if your baby looks like Rhonda she must be very cute indeed!!
      Haha maybe a little harder work but I'm sure kids can be just as fun and cute lol.

      In that case - I tag you too, well if you want to do it anyways. I'd love to read it :)
