A is for .... All About Me.

 April is the month of A-Z!

It's April, which is the month of the 'Blogging from A-Z Challenge', which means I need to get my brain into gear and think of something to write about each day. Last year unfortunately I didn't manage to complete it, but I hope I succeed this year! Now, to dust off of my imagination, my creativity, and those writing skills.. eeek!

A is for All About Me.

I thought I would start with a little introduction to me. Well, instead of the usual stuff, I thought I would write about some of the useless bits of info which you would probably never know unless you had lived with me my entire life... then you still wouldn't know some bits... anyway, here goes...

- My favouite chocolate bars (UK) are Crunchie and Double Decker. Boost is not far behind.
- I detest cilantro with a passion.
- I have always wanted to do a skydive, but I'm getting less brave as I get older.
- I hate hate hate to sleep with ticking clocks.
- I love inventing recipes. I just made a delicious dessert pretty much by invention.
- I hate the way the American pronunciation of route and algae. It's like the word is being tortured each time someone says it. Sorry.
- I also hate how Americans say write me, instead of write to me. You can't just take out a preposition and expect it to make sense. Sorry, once again.
 - As a child I wanted to be a Sea King helicopter pilot, which, incidentally, is Prince William's job in the Royal Air Force. If I had done that (very unlikely!) then maybe I would have been buddies with a prince!
- I am a recycling nut. It physically pains me when I see something which could be recycled, thrown away.
- I moisturise my hands a gazillion times a day and they are still dry and cracked.
- I am one of the most indecisive people I know.  I have a magnet with a picture of a bear with his hands over his eyes, with the quote "I used to be decisive, but now I'm not sure".
- I feel at least 10 years younger than I actually am.
- My favourite writing pens are the cheap bic pens which nobody else likes. And the blue is definitely better than the black. The purple is my all-time favourite.
- I love the take off and landing parts of flying. The speeds and the bumps make it fun times. Turbulants scare me, but are also kinda cool.

That's enough random information for now. Hope that was half interesting at least! :)



  1. Your right, I don't think I knew most of this, and I'm your MIL! Glad to know these tidbits of information about you :)

  2. Those are some interesting tidbits, look forward to the rest of your challenge posts!

  3. As an American and a Writer, I completely understand where your'e coming from as far as grammar and pronunciation. Sometimes I want to hit people continuously with a Dictionary, followed by a book of grammar rules. Maybe they'd get it then? I am rather patient with people, unless they use the improper forms of your/you're and they're/their/there. I have no tolerance. :P
    Good luck with the challenge!

  4. I enjoyed learning some fun facts about you! I will certainly work on learning how to pronounce route and algae:) I am visiting via the A to Z Challenge!
