10 “Interesting” facts about me.

Lately I have been writing a lot of review and planning posts and realised you, my lovely readers, probably don’t know that much about me. I thought it might be time for a more personal post so here are 10 interesting* facts about me:

  • I hate driving! I had lessons when I was 17, 18 and again last year when I was 28. I failed my test 3 times and passed on the 4th attempt last July. I make myself drive everyday but only short distances and have never driven on the motorway.
  • I used to hate sport when I was younger and still dislike team sports. I always used to write myself fake notes from my mum to get out of PE and got away with it for a while until one day, my mum picked me up from school and my PE teacher came sprinting towards the car with a huge pile of notes I had written!
  • My first job was in KFC when I was 17. I had to wear a hat and a uniform that was about 2 sizes too big for me, not my best look!
  • I have never seen any of the Jurassic park films! As a kid my Mum wouldn’t let me watch them as she said they were too scary. As an adult I don’t really enjoy films like that so have never gotten around to watching them.
  • People think I am really unemotional, in fact I have been called the Ice Queen more than once. I hate crying in front of people and if someone offers me sympathy my tears dry right up. However, I am actually really emotional and cry at most Disney films!
  • I always used to bite my nails, right down to the bottom until they bled. When I was pregnant I randomly stopped and now the thought of biting my nails makes me feel sick!
  • I am the worst person in the mornings, always have been. As a kid my family knew never to speak to me in the morning and Mike always says some mornings he feels too scared to speak to me! The only thing I like about driving is that I can now drive myself to work and don’t have to talk to anyone in the mornings!
  • I don’t eat any fish or seafood at all. When I was about 9 I found a tiny bone in a fish finger and refused to eat them ever again. I attempted to eat salmon earlier this year and hated it, even the smell of fish fingers turns my stomach
  • I used to be able to play the piano. I didn’t do any exams but could play a couple of songs and played The Mexican Hat Dance in a junior school summer concert. I am currently storing my sister’s piano in my house so my aim over the next 6 months is to teach myself to play again.
  • When I was younger I was massively obsessed with Eminem. I knew all the lyrics to all of his songs and had a whole wall of my room covered in posters of him!

That was more fun than I thought it would be! Hopefully you enjoyed reading this post and getting to know the real me a little better. Do you have any interesting facts about yourself that you want to share with your readers? Feel free to leave one in the comments or do a similar post and tag me in it so I can read it, I’m so nosey, I love reading posts like this!

  1. Interesting post! 🙂 I also passed my driving test on the 4th attempt… that was after two years, two driving schools and three instructors. It was a very stressful learning experience for me, but I’m glad I did it as driving is important to me for when I have a family in the future.

    1. Thank you 😊 I wasn’t sure how interesting it would actually be! Wow really? I think 4th time people are the best drivers 😜 I did it for the same reason, so I could drive my daughter places. I’m so glad I did it as it has made life so much easier!

  2. Great post, I might do a similar one if that’s ok? I’m 29 and still haven’t learned how to drive! I had lessons when I was 25 and hated it so much I haven’t tried again. Well done to you for forcing yourself to keep going! 🙂

    1. Thanks! Yeah of course, let me know if you do! I was the same and there is no point learning again until your ready. I knew I wanted to do it before I was 30 so just made myself do it and I’m so glad I did! Maybe try a different instructor? I finally settled with my 3rd instructor because I got on with him so well!

  3. Thanks for allowing us readers to get to know you, this was fun to read! Some of which was fairly comical, the fish situation kinda made me laugh, sorry! But I could see how that would be traumatizing enough to keep you from eating seafood ever again.
