25 things...................

I love reading these random facts on other peoples blogs so I thought I would do one too as my blog is pretty new so you could find out a little more about me. That and the fact that I’ve got that horrible cold/bug thing that’s going about so have nothing exciting to report on the fashion side of things.

  1. I’m a tomboy and far enjoy men’s company and sense of humour to women and despite the fact that I now love fashion I wouldn’t wear a skirt or dress until I was about 15 (apart from school uniform obvs)
  2. I wanted to be an Architect since I was 8 and studied it for a year before changing to Construction Engineering. While I love my job this is a big regret for me as I still want to be an Architect now.
  3. I have really long arms, and have problems getting clothes that are long enough.
  4. I had a really slow labour with my son - 44 hours with my son to be precise, but I forgot about it all the second I saw his face.
  5. I love cars and used to buy a new one every year (that was before I got married!)
  6. The most beautiful place I have ever visited was the Maldives on Honeymoon, we’re planning on going back for our 10 year anniversary (only 6 more years to go!)
  7. I am obsessed with food, I think about it constantly.
  8. I have both a gluten and dairy intolerance which is always fun (see above)
  9. I extremely accident prone and have broken my foot twice, my ankle twice, various toes, my knee cap dislocates every so often and I have to pop it back in, I have a piece missing of my right index finger, and I’ve fractured my skull to name but a few.
  10. I believe in love at first sight, because I experienced it.
  11. I'm scared of heights, I just woke up one day about ten years ago and had a fear all of a sudden.
  12. I love America, and always wish I was born there.
  13. I designed and am currently building my own house and hope to be in it before the end of the year.
  14. I never really like chocolate until I got pregnant now I can’t get enough of it especially Galaxy.
  15. My pet peeve is people eating loudly, it makes my skin crawl.
  16. I have really good balance and am very flexible.
  17. I have really bad patience, a trait that I can now see in my son.
  18. I could not live without the Internet, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t use it.
  19. I am very shy and quiet which people sometimes mistake for snobishness or arrogance.
  20. I love to read, and still have all my childhood books that are very precious to me.
  21. I have over 200 pairs of shoes but always seem to wear the same 5 pairs.
  22. I am very competitive from years of playing sport, its dying down as the years go on thankfully.
  23. I can jump really far, and represented Ulster in The Long Jump.
  24. I am really indecisive, and find it hard to make decisions especially important ones.
  25. I am always late for everything and it bugs the hell out of me.
