I thought that it might be quite fun to do a little ‘get to to know each other’ post. I’m going to share 10 things that you may not know about me and I’d love it if you shared something that people may not know about you!
So here are 10 things that you may not know about me:
1. I hate rudeness
There’s just no need for it! If I’m in the way, just say excuse me! Also, it’s not going to kill you to say please and thank you. Clearly some people don’t want to risk it though.
2. I can’t stand spiders
I hate that they can creep up on you and they just appear out of nowhere! You’ve not been invited into my house, get out!
3. I’m really short
Like 5ft 1 1/2in. I honestly thought that I was taller than that! But when I was pregnant I had my height and weight checked and that’s when I made the discovery. It was a very disappointing moment.
4. I wanted to be an actress when I was younger
I even took drama in college. One small problem with that….I really can’t act.
5. I hate brushing my teeth
Obviously, I still do brush my teeth twice a day, I’m not gross! But it really annoys me having to do it. At bedtime, I just want to fall into bed but I can’t because I need to brush my teeth!
6. I have 6 tattoos
The little heart is from mine and Darren’s wedding invitations and the quote on my thigh really spoke to me when I was going through my depression. I also have Little J’s name written on my wrist.
The others don’t really mean anything, I just thought that they looked pretty!
7. I used to call myself an Emo
Yes, I had the black (and sometimes Blue/Purple/Red/Orange) short spikey hair, long fringe, piercings, heavy eyeliner and studded belt. I loved Green Day, Blink 182, Good Charlotte and My Chemical Romance (haha loved – who am I kidding, I still love them now, in between Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift 🙈) Oh my god, I think I might still be an Emo!
8. I am superstitious
I won’t walk under a ladder (I’m not stupid! Something might fall on me!), never open an umbrella indoors, I don’t like 666 (even writing it makes me nervous!), I knock on wood after saying something that ‘tempts fate’, I refuse to walk over 3 drains in a row (much more difficult now I have a pushchair!) and I’ve only just got over breaking a mirror!
I used to salute magpies but after an incident where I nearly crashed the car going around a roundabout (pre-Little J) trying to salute about 20 of the damn things, I had to stop!
9. I hate scary films but watch some anyway to ‘test myself’
What is the point of a scary film? Where is the fun in being scared? Especially Zombie films 🧟♀️🧟♂️ But for some reason, if there’s a film on the TV or something new on Netflix, I’ll end up watching it. And then be scared for the next 2 months that what I’ve watched might come true. Why??
10. My weird celebrity crush
Simon Pegg. I have no idea why? Maybe because he makes me laugh? I have the normal ones, like Chris Hemsworth 🤤, Robert Downy Jr and Jude Law. I also like Tom Holland, which makes me feel weird as he’s nearly 8 years younger than me. I’m sensing a Marvel theme here…..
And there we have it! There are 10 things that you may not know about me. Well, you do now! Is there anything about you that people may not know that you are happy to share? Don’t be shy, leave me a comment and let’s get to know each other!
