Get to know me tag!

I have seen the 'getting to know me' tag on loads of different blogs which i have really enjoyed reading - i'm intrigued by people and love finding out little things about them!
As i haven't yet done a tag post i thought this might be a good place to start and i hope some of you might be interested in 'getting to know me' a little better!

So here goes....

1. Are you names after anyone?

My Nana is called Anne which i think is where Anna came from.

2.When was the last time you cried?

I cried the day before yesterday when we drove past our wedding venue. Unfortunately it brings back a lot of very upsetting & distressing memories which i may talk about at some point in the future on here, i think it could be cathartic to write about what happened, but not at the moment.

3. Do you have kids?

Not yet!

4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?

hmmm, this is a strange one! I hope i would be.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

No...... !! I think most of us Brits are partial to a bit of sarcasm are we not?

6. Will you ever bungee jump?

Never say never and all that but its very very highly unlikely! I am not one of those people who enjoy the sensation of my stomach falling out through my feet!

7. Whats your favourite cereal?

Ok, i will say weetabix, but i eat it in a slightly unusual way - with butter on it, like a piece of toast! does anyone else do this? My Grandma used to feed us it as kids and its still my go to comfort food. My husband still finds it really bizarre after 6 years of knowing me and my weetabix eating habits!

8. Whats the first thing you notice about people?

People might think this is strange but I notice peoples energy first before anything else. I'm really sensitive to it and being around a negative or stressful energy can really effect me and get me down.

9. What is your eye colour?

Bluey green.

10. Scary movie or happy ending?

Definitely happy ending, i'm not a fan of scary films, they stress me out and make me feel very tense and on edge.

11. Favourite smells?

Puppies, My husband when hes wearing Gucci Guilty, The air before it snows, suncream on warm skin and freshly baked bread.

12. Summer or winter?

I love Winter for snow and Christmas but if i have to chose it would be Summer, the sun makes such a difference to my mood and general outlook on life. However i would have to say summer in another country: if i have to endure another sunless, dreary summer in the UK i will seriously be sorting out some pet passports and upping sticks to Portugal.

13. Computer or television?

Computer: i can amuse myself for hours with blogs and YouTube, and i could still watch Homeland on 4od!

14. Whats the furthest you've ever been from home?

Not all that exciting but i think it would probably be Gran Canaria. I am determined to extend this to the USA within the next 12 months!

15. Do you have any special talents?

I can juggle?!

16. Where were you born?

I was born at home in a village called Anthorn in Cumbria.

17. What are your hobbies?

I love reading, baking, taking photos and going abroad and exploring new places.

18. Do you have any pets?

Yes! I have two gorgeous dogs. They are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Digsy is a boy and he is nearly 5 and Elsa is a girl and she is 3 and I adore them! They make me smile every single day and i can't imagine life without them <3

19. Favourite movie?

I couldn't say just one but in no particular order - Baz Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet, True Romance, Lady & The Tramp, Fight club, Jarhead, Home Alone, The Beach and Brokeback Mountain

20. Do you have any siblings?

Yes i have a younger brother and an older brother but the less said about him the better!

I hope you've enjoyed this little insight? I would like to tag any of you to do this! Please let me know if you do because i'd love to get to know you all too :)

I have to leave it there because i have an exciting night to go and get ready for - I'm off to see Mumford and sons with my hubby and sister in law eeek! I'm so excited!!
