25 Random Things about Me

I’ve been thinking about doing a post like this for a while because, let’s face it, unless you’re a family member or friend you don’t really know me.

This is me with my husband (sorry to disappoint, I’m not an eye with a kindle for a face IRL!) 😊

1. What is your middle name?Β 

Margaret (after one of my great grandmothers) and Helena (taken for my confirmation)

2. What is your favorite drink?

Coffee in the morning, tea in the evening, Apple and Blackcurrant Robinsons during the day. Rarely, I might push the boat out and drink a Coke!!!

3. What is your favorite song at the moment?

I don’t have a favourite as such as I don’t have a radio, so rarely hear current music. If I had to pick, it would be either some One Direction (I know!) or a Finnish band called HIM. I’ve loved them since I was 17!

4. What is your favorite food?

This is tough, I’m a sucker for fresh bread with butter. I love all the stuff that’s bad for you to be honest! My husband makes a mean lasagne though!

5. What is the last thing you bought?

Jane Issac’s book The Truth Will Out. My answer was always going to be a book wasn’t it! πŸ˜‰

6. Favorite book of all time?

The Harry Potter Series will always be my favourite I think. I find it very hard to choose a favourite “grown up” book. Elizabeth Haynes’ Into The Darkest Corner would be on the list for sure though.

7. Favorite Color?

Black. Or Grey!

8. Do you have any pets?

No pets in our house I’m afraid.

9. Favorite Perfume?

Burberry London. The original. The best. The I CAN’T FIND IT ANYMORE!!! πŸ˜‚



10. Favorite Holiday?

Christmas. I love everything about it. Last year, I was too tired to enjoy it having just had my daughter 10 days previous but I’ll make up for it this year. In 2013 I had 4 Christmas trees up along with mini ones around the house, doubt I’ll get away with that this year! πŸ˜‰

11. Are you married?

I am, as you can see from my pic above! My husband is the most wonderful, supportive man and the most caring and loving dad to our two children so I’m very lucky.

12. Have you ever been out of the country, if so how many times?

I have. Too many times to count, thanks to holiday-loving parents.

13. Do you speak any other language?

I speak Irish (being from Ireland and all that!), I studied it through college. I also did French in school so I can understand it a bit! I’m also fluent in sarcasm and curse words! πŸ˜‰

14. How many siblings do you have?

None! I’m an only child!

15. What is your favorite store?

Any and every bookshop I go into. Basically anywhere I can buy books!

16. Favorite restaurant?

We rarely eat in restaurants anymore, but if I had to choose, Milano (Pizza Express in the UK) definitely.

17. When was the last time you cried?

I’m not usually a crier to be honest. I think the last time was watching one of the Harry Potter movies, when a certain character died. Gets me every time.

18. Favorite Blog?

I like any blogs about books so I’m just going to say my fellow #blogsquad members;

Crimebookjunkie Book Blog
Relax And Read Reviews
Bytheletterbookreviews

19. Favorite Movie?
I have loads! Top Gun, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Die Hard, Con Air, Gone in 60 Seconds, to name but a small few!!!

20. Favorite TV show?

I love questions, so The Chase on UTV, and then programmes like CSI, Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy, Masterchef.

21. PC or Mac?

I rarely use a computer! I do most of my work on my iPad when I need to.

22. What phone do you have?

iPhone! Surprise surprise!

23. What’s your favourite pastime?Β 

Ammmm, READING!! And blogging about the books I read! πŸ™‚

24. Can you cook?

I can do basic stuff, veg potatoes freezer stuff. I do make a good honey glazed ham though! My husband is much better in the kitchen than me I think!

25. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?

I have my ears pierced. I got my nose pierced when I was younger and it was terrible! It didn’t last long!

I have 7 tattoos so far and all of them mean something to me. I have 2 anchors, two number 13 tattoos, my sons name, INRI, a heartagram (the logo of the band HIM!) and a date. I’m planning on two more that I know of so far, one of which is for my daughter.
