Do you keep a diary/journal?
Of sorts. I have a day to day diary for appointments and stuff which gets filled up with doodles, quotes and random musings, as well as a visual journal which I only really add to when I’m feeling inspired.
Are you scared of thunderstorms?
Not especially; I think they’re amazing to watch so I enjoy seeing/hearing them from a safe distance but I do get a little twitchy if there’s one happening right over me.
Do you have any unusual fears or phobias?
Nothing specific. I find that when my anxiety rears its ugly head I feel really afraid of nothing in particular, which probably seems quite unusual to most people but I guess not so much for anxiety sufferers.
What’s your favourite Disney movie?
Oh my goodness, why would you ask me that?! As if I could pick just one! Some of my favourites are definitely Beauty and The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in The Stone, Robing Hood, Big Hero 6… you know what? If I carry on I’m just going to list them all, so I’m going to stop.
Have you ever painted a house?
What an ambiguous question. A whole house? The inside of one? The outside? Or are we talking about painting a picture of a house? I’ve certainly painted rooms within a house if that’s what you mean. Painting the whole house seems a little excessive.
What’s the tallest tree you’ve ever climbed?
Are you asking for a measurement? Because i have no idea. Probably one of the horse chestnuts on the park behind the house where I grew up.
Do you always wear identical socks?
No. Weirdly, I go through phases of wanting to wear matching socks or purposefully mismatched socks. There is no middle ground.
Do you live by any motto or philosophy?
Do you lick the yogurt or dessert lid?
Do you lick the spoon clean after making something sweet?
Have you ever played the bongos?
I feel like this is something I should have done but I don’t think I actually have.
Have you ever handled a snake?
No. And honestly this does NOT feel like something I should have done.
Have you ever assembled furniture by yourself?
Abso-flippin-lutely I have! I sort of feel like its a badge of honour for a bookworm to build her/his own bookshelves. I have also built a desk.
When did you last go to the beach?
Far too long ago. Probably on honeymoon which is nearly 2 years ago now. Happily there are beaches in my not-too-distant future.
When, if ever, did you last go to London?
That would be the week after Easter this year.
What do you do to cool down when its hot?
I eat ice lollies and read a book in the garden. Reading helps with everything.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?
I’m not generally one for unusual food so it’s probably something like squid. I also ate fresh figs pulled straight from the tree in Greece…which is unusual since it’s not something that would be readily available to me. Does that count?
Do you have a favorite mug?
I have two; one with Winnie the Pooh and friends beautifully painted on it and one that says DON’T PANIC in
big small friendly letters on the side.
Do you know any self-defense or martial arts?
Not technically but I reckon I can kick pretty hard…
Who’s your favourite movie action hero?
Never really thought about it…thinking…still don’t know.
Have you ever ridden a motorcycle?
Do you collect anything?
Books, notebooks, washi tape, stationary in general.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Nothing specific but I occasionally wish hats were more of a ‘thing’ in general. I love hats.
Do you stick to conventional fashions or like to try and be original?
Neither, I wear what I want regardless of whether it is ‘fashionable’ or ‘original’ – I’d rather be comfy and feel like me than be ‘cool’.
Have you ever given someone a handmade present?
Yes indeed. Many people in fact!
