25 Random facts about me!

Elsa on the left, Digs on the right

The 50 random things about me tag has been flying around the blogosphere and youtube for the last couple of weeks and i have enjoyed reading/watching them but i struggled to think anyone would want to know 50 facts about me. When i saw this post on Sam's blog it appealed to me because 25 seemed like a more
manageable number so i decided it was a good compromise!

So for anyone who is interested in who is behind the blog, here they are:

1. My dogs are both names after Oasis songs, Digsy (digsy’s dinner) and Elsa (Supersonic) because they were always my favourite band.

2. I pretty much knew I would marry my husband on our first date.

3. I have a bit of a thing for military uniforms!

4. I am an Aquarian.

5. I was born on a Sunday.

6. I have two brothers and I am the middle child.

7. I watch American reality TV to relax – the trashier the better!

8. I have a degree in Applied Biology.

9. Portugal is my favourite place in the world and one of my life goals is to own a house out there.

The Algarve
10. Two of my best friends and my sister-in-law have little boys aged between 2-7 years old and they never fail to put a smile on my face.

11. My husband is convinced our first child will be a girl.

12. I am a sun worshiper but I always get a bit excited when it snows.

13. I was selected to go through to the final stages of the application process for the TV programme Shipwrecked on T4, but I withdrew because I met my (now) husband and didn't want to leave him.

14. I can juggle.

15. I have Palindromic Rheumatoid Arthritis, and have done since I was 19. I will never get rid of it but I manage it with pain killers and changes to my lifestyle.

16. I only work part time as I need to give myself time to rest – see fact 15.

17. I have been told by two different Psychics that I have ‘the gift’ and I am strangely perceptive.

18. I love eggs but I cannot stand omelettes!

19. Back in my student days in Newcastle I had a little kiss with Dec (as in Ant & Dec) and he was as short as I am!

20. I’m allergic to cats, this allergy developed at the same time as my arthritis, but I still give my cat Fuzzy a massive cuddle whenever I see him (he lives at my mums)

21. My favourite thing to drink is a glass of New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. My second favourite is a cup of tea.

22. I always get salty popcorn at the cinema.

23. 13 and 24 are my lucky numbers.

24. I dream about being wealthy enough to own a yacht so I can take my dogs on holiday with me!

I wish!
25. I used to go on caravan holidays when I was younger and I love the sound of the wind and rain outside because it reminds me of being all cosy in a sleeping bag in our caravan.
