20 things about me

So, I saw this on another blog post and figured I would try it myself. Not only will I be able to show you guys some other things about me, but it is good for me to write as often as I can. And seeing as I have no current blog posts to write about, I figured I would give this a go.

So here it is:-

1 – I am a Sagittarius, born in November.

2 – I am the mother of two gorgeous boys, Ethan 6 and Oliver 3. I love them more than anything else.

3 – I have been with my husband for 19 years this year and married for 12.

4 – I have a fear of canals at nighttime. I have this uncontrollable feeling that I am going to fall in and it freaks me out.

5 – I have successfully run a small photography business the past 10 years. I shot weddings, birthdays, events etc and I have a large portfolio which I will share one day in another post.

6 – I am currently signed up with slimming world. I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle and have started exercising too.

7 – I love lying on the bed in the dark and listening to songs via Spotify. It really helps to relax me.

8 – I love chick flick films; Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Never Been Kissed….I love seeing a good girly film!

9 – I have two webbed toes on each foot (the two closest to the big toe) I inherited them from my nan who had them. And my eldest son Ethan also has them.

10 – I don’t like hot drinks; tea, coffee etc.

11 – I drive a red Toyota Yaris Hybrid. It is automatic and I love it. It was my first car after passing my test in Jan 2017.

12 – I love reading books. I have not one favourite genre or author as I love so many. But it can range from Stephen King to Jodie Picoult.

13 – I love chocolate spread.

14 – I am a little kooky at times….I’m chatty and quite bubbly when you get to know me but can come across as quiet at first.

15 – I am not the most confident of people; after ridicule at School, previous jobs etc then I always feel that I’m not good enough. I am working on thinking better of myself.

16 – I lost my baby in November, 3rd child. Despite the trauma of it all, I would still like another one.

17 – I have a pet pug called Harry – We call him Harry Pugger.

18 – I love perfume; my favourite being Paco Rabbane Millions at the moment!

19 – I love watching boxsets; Gotham, Smallville, Flash, Buffy, Friends, Greys Anatomy and many more.

20 – I am currently lying in bed in just my underwear listening to my husband and boys downstairs finishing breakfast. My husband let me have a lie in and I’ve used the time to write this post 😀

And that’s it; there is more to me than this post obviously but this is just a small glimpse of me as a person 🙂

Author:

I am a 36 year old female from the UK. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two beautiful boys, Ethan (6) and Oliver (3). We also have a gorgeous Pug called Harry, he is 11 weeks old and full of life. I currently work part time for the local authority but have run a small photography business for the past 10 years, where I provided a photography service for weddings, events and I also provided photoshoots for babies and small children. The business ran quite well and got great feedback from all of my clients who regularly referred me onto their friends and family. For as far back as I can remember there were two things I wanted to do in my life. 1 - Become a writer, whether it be write a fiction novel or writing content for newspapers/magazines, etc - It is always something that I have enjoyed doing. 2 - Become a photographer and run my own business. I conquered number 2. I ran my own business and tried consumer photography jobs. It was fun while it lasted but I felt that I wasn't using my camera the way I wanted to. Towards the end, I stopped enjoying it so much. I still take on the odd job, but I am now keen to try and conquer the other passion of mine. I am not saying that photography will be done with forever. I love taking artistic photographs and I am hoping to showcase some of that work on here, pieces that are just for me...and only me. But what I want to do more than anything is produce a piece of writing that is published. Whether it be short stories, a novel, content for newspapers, etc. So I figured I would produce a blog to showcase some of my work - review some books/movies and just get used to writing again and putting my own content out there. So this is me. The Mother, the wife, the Pug Mom, The photographer, The Writer

  1. I feel like I’ve gotten to know you so much more with this, so thank you for sharing! Also, I must point out that you are gorgeous! I enjoy listening to spotify at night as well, but more so to belt out music or dance around! I’m glad I have a better sense of who you are.
