The lovely Andrea at CousCousandcorkWedges has tagged me in The Winter Tag.
The rules of the tag are:
Share 12 random facts about yourself.
Answer the 12 questions.
List 12 bloggers you wish to tag and pass the tag on by letting them know you've nominated them. However I've decided that my Winter Tag is open for anyone who wishes to participate as being such a busy time of year you may well decide to take part before or after Christmas on this one!!
My 12 Random Facts:
1. I've just started a new job-hurrah!! I am now officially a library assistant and I work in different sections and different libraries within my borough-plus, I actually love it too as I get to work with adults and children and do a variety of different things each time I'm there!
2. I love Made in Chelsea-it's my guilty pleasure and I love how my eldest son pitches up with me every episode to tune in!
3. I have a scarf addiction which seems to be growing each week-it doesn't matter if it's vintage, a boot sale or charity shop find, a high street or designer buy I show no preferential treatment to whichever one catches my eye!!
4. I also have a jeans addiction- 27 pairs at my last count-gulp! I love skinny jeans, bootcut, straight, slim and flares as well as coloured jeans too!
5. My favourite flavour tea is Twinings Lapsang Souchong, it's really smoky and I love it strong and hot.
6. I love music- all genres but my favourites are late 70s pop and disco and classical music.
7. I love reading too but I just need more time to get into my books- if I'm relaxing I still tend to surf the net a little too often!
8. I went on the Orient Express for my mums 75th birthday to Deal- it was an amazing experience which I would love to repeat!
9. I don't do ornaments- I really am not a knick-knack or bric a brac type of gal- it could be having a small house with two boys was generally the main reason but now they're older I still don't hanker over having items like these dotted around the house!
10. I don't like cooking and prefer to let hubby do it, but when I do my favourite meals to make are curries and roasts.
11. I love potatoes-jackets and roast ones are my favourites.
12. The last time I had my hair cut short was the last time I will ever have it short- I sort of regretted it and it seemed to take an age to grow out too!
