50 Questions Tag

It's been a while since I didd a tag and I always like reading them. I find they're great for an easy way to get to know the person behind the blog a little better. I read this post by
Gemma and she tagged anyone reading so here I go...


Would you rather be twice as smart or twice as happy?
Twice as happy. I'm smart enough and I don't think you can ever be too happy.

 What's your worst habit?
Picking off my nail polish. I'm fine if there's no chips at all, but the second I see one I know it all had to be re-done anyway and I'll pick at all the rest and leave bits of nail polish on the floor and have to hoover immediately. 

Are you dating?

 I'm in a long term relationship and we go on yes.

Do you take Shampoo and Conditioner bottles from hotel rooms?
           If they are a good brand and I haven't used them already then yes. If not I usually use my own anyway!

What is the one thing you'll never do again?
Never say never to anything.

Do you collect anything?
I've got a lot of limited edition Disney bits-and-bobs in my parent's loft. I love looking through it and when we get a bigger place I'll have it all on display somewhere.

Worst injury you ever had?
There's nothing that I can't go into in great detail.

 What is your favourite pet/animal?
A dog, I absolutely love german shepherds and border collies.

What's your dream vacation?
Disney World with all of my family. We'd have to go all-out so it would cost a fortune but it's something I can't wait to do properly!

Honestly, are things going the way you planned?
Nope, but I love it. Everything is better than I'd ever have planned it.

 Do you have any tattoos?
I have a small one of a shooting star on my left hip. I don't love it, I don't hate it.

What's your secret to lure in the opposite sex?
Urm... make him realise I'm everything he was looking for. I don't know, I was just myself, that kind-of worked! Apparently he found me funny.

Any phobias?
Fish is the worst one, but I also hate birds flying at my head and Chinese dragons.

Do you bite your nails?
Nope. horrible habit.

Do you ever count your steps as you walk?
Only if I'm trying not to think about things too much. Counting steps is a great distraction.

Heels or Flats?
Heels. I can't walk in flats.


Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No, I helped take a traffic cone once... but everyone's done that haven't they?

Do you always smile for pictures?
Yes, I never understand people that don't. Surely the pic will be taken anyway and you just look moody...?

Do you ever dance when there's no music playing?
All the time. My happy dance makes a regular occurrence in our house, it's all in the hips with a lot of wiggling.

Do you miss anyone right now?
My Grandad and my brother.

What's your favourite colour?
I have two. Mint green and purple

 Do you want kids?
I have one already and he's adorable. I'm 86% sure I want another in a few years.

Are you patient?
Most of the time. Some people make me need to count to ten though...

Can you swim?
I'm a pretty strong swimmer. I swam pretty much every day of the Summer holidays for about 10 years as we had a holiday home at the beach.

Tea or Coffee?
Tea. I only really drink coffee out as I prefer 'proper coffee' and instant doesn't really cut it.

 What do you wear to bed?
a vest top and some pj bottoms or shorts depending how cold I am.

Ever used a gun?
Yep, we did rifle shooting on a school trip away once....that sounds so middle class of me doesn't it?

Do you sing in the shower?
I sing and I dance. It's a real show in there!

Are you stubborn?

Are you lazy?
Not in the slightest. I could do with being lazier actually. Every argument Sam and I have is about him telling me to do less.

Can you change the oil in a car?
I could do if I needed to. 

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I write a bit of an essay in birthday cards so quite recently. But a proper letter would have been a couple of years back when Sam told me he had never received a love letter so I wrote him one.

Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
People wouldn't not want to see that!

 What is your favourite food?

Do you still watch cartoons?
We have Disney films on almost constantly which is mainly for our son but I end up watching them too.


 What movies can you watch over and over again and not get bored?

What superpower would you have for one day?
To control time. Pause it, speed it up, rewind. It would be the best super power ever.

What's been your favourite age so far?
25. I did a lot of growing up and kind of 'found myself' I had a job I loved, the guy I fancied was falling for me. I was earning a lot and could afford nice things and excellent nights  out. I'll always look back on those days and smile. I don't wish I could go back and do it  again as I love my life now but that was just the beginning of an amazing journey.

How old are you?
I am 100 Karen

If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?
Be careful, people aren't always who you think they are. 

If you knew you would die in one week, what would you do?
Well this is a bit morbid. I'd just spend time with my family.

What celebrity would you trade lives with?
Victoria Beckham.

Do people take you seriously? 
Too seriously. But I think thats the world we live in, so many people take everything to heart and don't just live in the moment.

What happened the last time you cried?
It was less about being sad but more that I was frustrated. I was with being blamed for something I didn't do.

 Who knows you best?

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Closed... why would they be open? If they were open I probably wouldn't be able to sleep as it would be annoying me too much!

What is your song of the week?
Anything by George Michael at the moment. Loving him at the mo!

 Last person you kissed?
My son a couple of hours ago.

Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Granola and cherry Activia. I love it and it makes me feel good that I've had something decent for breakfast.

Does anyone know the password to your email?
Nope, whats the point in having a password if somebody else knows it?

oh I don't half rabbit on don't i?! Well done for reading through this lot!
I tag anyone who wants to give this a go, but if you do make sure you link it below so I can read!
