50 Facts About Me

25 Facts About Me

>I’ve seen quite a few bloggers do a post like this recently, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and join in on the factual fun. Here goes…

1. I am an unidentical twin. My brother and I are literally opposites of each other. He’s the evil one, obviously!

2. I hate the smell of tangerines. It literally turns my stomach.

3. I travelled on my own for the first time last year when I flew to what is now, one of my favourite places – Edinburgh. (That was kind of a 2 for 1 there. Let’s just say I’m feeling generous!)

4. My cats are my family and my world. I’ve grown up with felines all my life and when I retire in many many years to come, I plan on opening up a cat sanctuary to take care of homeless kitties.

5. I believe comedy can cure anything. The world can always be righted with laughter and a smile.

6. If I hadn’t gone in to design, I would have been an Archaeologist.

7. I despise all things patent. I wouldn’t be caught dead in patent!

8. During surgery I had at 20, I had a cardiac arrest. I was technically dead for a few seconds. It gave me a new perspective on everything and I definitely believe each second we have is precious.

9. The best experience in my life to-date was going to the Paralympic Closing Ceremony last year. I got to see Coldplay live and hear Lord Seb Coe talk about the greatness that is Britain. It was unbelievably moving and the atmosphere was like nothing I’ve ever known. It’ll stay with me forever.

10. I have a tiny family. Tiny. One day in the future I hope to have a big, wild family. Busy, packed Christmases, family holidays and BBQs… perfect.

11. The only fear I have in life (except that of clowns) is that I won’t have done all that I wish to or experienced all that I want.

12. I firmly believe you have to be comfortable and happy in your own company before you can expect anyone else to be.

13. If I could meet anyone in the whole world, it would be Tom Hanks. He’s my hero.

14. If I ever need inspiration, I watch the Rocky films. Works every time: “I just got one thing to say… to my wife at home: Yo, Adrian! I DID IT!”

15. I collect postcards and an item of jewellery from each new place I visit. I stick the postcards up above my headboard to remind me the memories and things I’ve done.

16. I play a sudoku/puzzle game every single day. I love keeping my brain and mind thinking and I never want to lose that, even in old age!

17. I’ve never had a driving lesson. I hope to change that this year.

18. I tried a fizzy drink at 6, it made me horribly sick and I have never touched a fizzy drink since. I’m an apple juice kinda gal.

19. I can’t stand TOWIE and the similar programmes. They’re just awful. People with no talent or ability being paid thousands. Disgusting.
