The TMI Tag

How did THIS post make its way here....??!!!

Quite simple really - i read a blog who had written it and thought it would be fun!
I found it at Frankie's Blog HERE at Curiouser and Curiouser!

So this is my TMI post. Ive tagged a couple of people at the end, but id love anyone to do it.

This just a fun tag and a way to connect to fellow bloggers that you may not have had the chance to visit!!
if any blogger has the linkz on the bottom of their post, please let me know and ill happily add mine! here you thrilling (*snort*) life....

What are you wearing?

A pair of 101 Dalmatians pj’s and a snugly dressing gown

Ever been in love?

Yes – only once

Ever had a terrible breakup?

Unfortunately yes – the baddest to end all bad!

How tall are you?

5ft 6in – have been since I was 16!

How much do you weigh?

I don’t know. I now refuse to use scales and use how my clothes fit as a guide

Any tattoos?

Yup, one on my right hand shoulder of a wolf’s paw and the kanji symbol for “wolf” underneath. I LOVE it!

Any Piercings?

Just my ears I got done when I was 13yrs old…although the first one hurt so much I nearly bolted out the door and had to be held down for the other ear!!! Sounds bad,but glad I got them done


(After looking up what this meant), quite a few-but all from books – Mercy and Adam (from Patricia Brigg’s series “Mercy Thompson”), Sookie and Eric (from Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris), oh but I do like Darren and Nancy in Hollyoaks!!!!

Favourite Show?

Nowadays….Family Guy, Greys Anatomy (tho I'm way behind), I watch hollyoaks, kind of a star trek voyager fan (but only voyager!)…my all time faves are Buffy, Charmed, Vicar of Dibley

Favourite Bands?

Not really bands…I like Pink, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, RHCP, Bon Jovi, Oasis (but back when they first started),

Something you miss?

At the moment, I miss my mum as I live in NI and she lives on the mainland, but I'm moving back later in the year.  I miss my 16yr old Labrador, called Jess who I had to let go 2 years ago to the bridge, it still hasn’t got to the point where I can see pictures and my heart not constricting. And last, but not least, i miss my nan.  Even more so that i couldn't say goodbye to her when she passed

Favourite Song?

My overall total song I need to go to when I need to need a push towards positive or happy is Kelly Clarkson’s “What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger”

How old are you?

*cringe* 34…and I have no idea how I got here!!

Zodiac sign?

Taurus…and a very typical one!

Quality you look for in a partner?

Honest, loyal, romantic, kind, understanding, and have nice eyes…not too much to ask…is it!?? LOL!!

Favourite quote?

Dr Seuss “Be Yourself – Those who matter don’t mind, those that mind don’t matter”

Favourite actor?

Hmm….not anyone too recent..i love Samuel L Jackson, Kevin Spacey, and I know its said all too often but Brad Pitt is a brilliant actor – not just a pretty boy, he seems to adapt to any role which is rare these days!

Favourite colour?

Purple and blue

Loud music or soft?

would totally depend what mood I'm in!

Where do you go when you're sad?

Put my electric blanket on on my bed, snuggle under and probably pick my kindle up or just rest.

How long does it take you to shower?

Depends if I feel like a long luxurious spoil me shower or a need-to-be-out or cant-be-bothered-with-this kinda shower, so swings from 15mins to 30mins!

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

Seriously not long. If I'm not grabbing a morning shower, its literally pull clothes on , make up in 10 mins, hair in 5 mins and a spritz of perfume and I'm done!

Ever been in a physical fight?

Only when I found my Ex was a cheat…and not really a fight – I just hit him!! LOL!!

Turn on?

A really good fire burning, toe curling kiss that you don’t want to end….

Turn off?

Someone who loves themselves, or someone who's good looking and knows it – total urgh.

The reason I started a blog?

I originally started to track a 100 day spend ban and wanted somewhere physical to write it……I failed it appallingly, but I carried on the blog,blogging about beauty (mostly nails) or books – and I really enjoy it.  Ive always been better at writing than talking!


*sigh* pretty much you name it, I'm in fear of it…I know…a total jelly belly!

Last thing that made you cry?

Frustration with my health.  I have M.E…if I go out one day for 2 hours I come back in agony and exhausted and it stays with me for about 3 days after.
Also, someone had upset my mum (we talk on skype) and I felt so helpless and nothing I can do….and to wring the neck of the person who caused it.

Last time you said you loved someone?

Today! :)

Meaning behind your blog name?

Double meaning really!  One of my dogs is called Penny.  And while I sat at my mums trying to think of something she came up with “Penny For Them…” as in a penny for your thoughts, which was perfect!

Last book you read?

This would change daily…at the moment it was Kades Dark Embrace by Kym Grosso…ask me in 2 days it will be something different!

The book you're currently reading?

Carrying on the series from above which is called the “Immortals of New Orleans” and this one is number 2 and called “Luca’s Magic Embrace”

Last show you watched?
Jamie's 15 minute meals – Sunday day TV sucks :p

Last person you talked to?

My mum

The relationship between you and the person you last texted?

Lol- my mum!

Favourite food?

Sucker for Chinese, but due to health (again) my taste buds have been affected and I cant enjoy the ones I used to love L  Chocolate of course, I have a very weak fondness for fruity chewy sweets as I nibble on them while I'm reading!

Place you want to visit?

Italy – so many places I cant begin to list. Kenya – or somewhere I can go on a safari –despite my fears of creepy crawlies!! Id love to see Cornwall (sad I know, but it looks so pretty!), I guess id like to see some part of America –just cos its one of those things that has to be done…and see more of the Caribbean.  Have fallen in love with Cuba, we went last year and for the first time EVER we’re revisiting this year.

Last place you were?

In the back yard clearing up the dog mess!!!

Do you have a crush?

Uhmm..not really…I used to like Justin Timberlake, but as hes got older hes lost what he had….like the next girl I can appreciate a TV advert with a hunky man with nice eyes and showing off a bit of a six pack and muscles….*sigh*

Last time you kissed someone?

Depends what kind of kiss! A kiss of the opposite sex, was last year, I kissed my dog (on the head) this morning, I kissed my mum goodbye when I left her in January.

Last time you were insulted?

About a week ago.  Accused of being a bully which is the furthest thing from the truth

Favourite flavour of sweet?

Fruity chewy sweets!

What instruments do you play?


Favourite piece of Jewellery?

It has to be my Pandora Bracelet. My mum and I both got each one one for Christmas a couple of years ago, and shes been filling mine up and I've been filling hers up.  To be honest, the monetary value is so much less than the sentimental.

Last sport you played?

Uhhmmm…does dog Walking count!??

Last song you sang?

Move Like Jagger by Maroon 5 

Favourite chat up line?

I really don’t have one…I don’t have the guts or confidence to chat someone up!

Have you ever used it?

See above!

Last time you hung out with someone?

Today! :)

Who should answer these questions next?

Anyone who would like to! But id love
Jenna of What Jenna Thought
Rachel of Beauty QueenUK
