A little bit about me...

I’m regular reader of Arash Mazinani’s blog and recently read a post of his entitled ‘The A to Z of Me’. It was great to find out a bit more about the man behind those great posts and it prompted me to do one of my own. So, here goes…


A. Age: 31

B. Bed Size: Queen

C. Chore That You Hate: Clearing up after my dog

D: Dogs: We’ve got a ball/teddy/squeaky toy obsessed Springer Spaniel called Hendrix.  He’s great with people but a little nervous around other dogs so I’m taking him to socialising ‘BOO!’ classes for scared dogs, I think it's actually making a difference!

E: Essential Start To Your Day: I can’t function without a giant cup of Yorkshire Tea; it’s the best tea around, and the strongest!

F: Favourite Colour:  That’s hard.  I wear a lot of black but really do LOVE colour.   I studied textile design at Uni and loved experimenting with different colour combinations in my designs.  My style was heavily inspired by nature so I guess, if I had to choose a favourite colour, it would be the oranges, reds, and yellows of the leaves turning in Autumn

G: Gold or Silver: I’m definitely a silver person; gold doesn’t look great on me

H. Height: 5”4ish

I. Instruments You Play: I learnt to play the flute for about a year, and the piano, but I’m not very patient so it didn’t last very long 

J. Job Title: Personal Stylist

K. Kids: None yet

L. Live: Bath

M. Mother’s Name: Maggie

N. Nicknames: Nik Nik’s as about exciting as it gets

O. Over Night Hospital Stays: I’ve had a few.  When I was little I constantly had problems with my ears and throat, so had grommets put in and tonsils whipped out

P. Pet Peeves: It has to be people who wear trousers that are too short.  It just looks awful! 

Q. Quote From A Movie: Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it is we did wrong, but we think you're crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club

R. Right or Left Handed: Right

S. Siblings: I have a younger sister Katy, she lives in Buxton so I don’t get to see her much…I miss her loads

Katy and me in The Hatchet, in Bristol
T. Time You Wake Up: Around 7.30am.  I’m really not a morning person; it takes me ages to wake up properly.  I’d rather go to bed late and get up late

U. Underwear: I like to wear matching, it makes me feel good!

V. Vegetable You Hate: Parsnips…I can’t stand them, and peas are evil too

W. What Makes You Run Late: It’s an ongoing joke in the family that I always forget something or loose things...and I can’t really argue with that

X. X-Rays You’ve Had: Don’t think I’ve had any

Y. Yummy Food You Make: Moroccan style wraps.  Marinated Lamb, Humus Chili, Tabouleh…yum!

Z. Zoo Animal: Leopard…of course!  Also love Elephants

So that's me!
