25 Random Facts About Me


This post was intended to be a nice and easy, factual post to let new and old followers alike learn a little more about me as an individual. However, maybe you can relate, but I really struggle to come up with any 'facts' about myself let alone interesting ones haha...in fact this post has taken a few weeks to complete.

Let me know if you share any of my traits or if similar things have happened to you etc. Here we go!

  1. In my lifetime I've had a dog, a guinea pig, 4 rabbits, 5 fish and 8 hamsters.
  2. I was named after my Granda, who was actually called Andrew...but people knew him as Danny.
  3. For my 21st birthday instead of a party I did a skydive to raise money for a cause close to my heart.
  4. The number of true 'friends' I have can be counted on one hand.
  5. I have an obsession with birds of all species and say good morning to those I pass on my way to work.

  14. Similarly, I have lived in a seaside town for 22 years out of my 24 years of life.

  18. Certain/incessant noises easily annoy me.
  19. My hair is long but very, very thin and fine.

  22. My first car was a Nissan Almera and I miss it.

  4. Can't believe how many pets you've had that's amazing! I've had very few pets because they've all died in bad circumstances :( I'm the same with my true friends as well I think I have about three. I also have the same thing with incessant noises annoying me. Sometimes it can just be someone breathing in a certain way & I just get so angry!

    1. Sadly were just down to the one dog, but all of the fish and hamsters had great long lives. Rabbits are so difficult to look after and am sad to say we've lost all of them prematurely.
      Quality not quantity eh ;)
      And will you please tell Jake that! He seems to think Im just a nutter lol

  6. This is such a lovely idea for a post! I'd struggle with coming up with enough facts though, haha. Skydiving for a good cause is such a great way to celebrate your birthday. Italian food is just the best, isn't it? And wow, you've had a lot of hair colours!

      And they funny thing is I used to get bullied for having coloured hair and now the people that picked on me are following the trend and have bright hair. Logic? ;)

  8. Aww makes me miss my hamster I had…Pickle. Yes I named a hamster Pickle. So jealous you live(d) in a seaside town! I have no clue what a vice captain is, but it sounds cool! Like Head Girl in Harry Potter ha.

    1. Aww bless! Little Pickle, how sweet. I miss mine all terribly. For such little things they have such personalities!
      And yes, I have a choice of 5 beaches within walking distance, its brillaint! And yes, it's very similar to Head Girl in Harry Potter! The house captain would be equivalent of head girl/boy and vice is head of the younger year group haha

  9. Im with you on trying to come up with facts its surprisingly difficult ! I love the Duggar's to I'm not religious but I just love the happy family life they got going on. I also believe mermaids exist especially after seeing a documentary a few years back that in my mind totally proved they exist :)

    1. haha I know right?! Yes, same here. I am an atheist but agree strongly with the majority of their morals, I wish more of the world were like them!
      Yay for mermaids!!! I saw a documentary too but my philosophy is just because it hasn't been seen doesn't mean it doesn't exist!

  11. There's an actual name for being scared of moths and butterflies? I can't even tell you how much i FREAK when one comes in the room and I can't go to sleep until it's gone! Poppy has to literally come in through a tiny little gap in the door at night so there are less chance of moths getting in hahah!
    Love this post, and you're so write it's so hard to write about yourself! I find it mind-numbing and end up writing things like 'im 5ft 1' 'I eat food' hahaha, so well done on keeping it actually interesting!

      Thank you very much - Im glad you enjoyed!

  13. Firstly, that is such a lovely photo of the 2 of you :)

    4: yes, 5, yes but ponies! 7: yes, 9; I can't even remember what colour mine is naturally but it's definitely not the grey that's trying to peep through! 15; 2 out of 3, must be heartbreaking for you being such a nature lover but having that fear?

    In other news, I'm so old I just had to google Duggar, Bates, and , Hufflepuff! xox

    1. Aw thank you! haha

      I love how many similarities we share! It's hard, especially when out photographing stuff and ones comes fluttering near me and I have to make a run for it. I have however taken photos of them through my long lens and had to think of something else while taking the photos to fight the ill feeling!

      I can't believe you had to Google Hufflepuff!!!!!!! :O haha
