  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • Share 5 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

5 FACTS:
(I FIGURED I’D DO THE SAME AS CODIE WITH A THEMED 5 FACTS BASED ON MUSIC)

  1. My sister has started to sing in her sleep- she thinks it’s cool- I think it’s a little creepy
  2. My favourite member of the Beatles was George Harrison. Someone said to me once “everyone says that when they’re trying to be original”- my answer to that is “if I wanted to be “original” I’d say Ringo Star”.
  3. I love songs you can singalong to- especially Disney and musicals
  4. If you watch a musical with me, there’s a good chance I will sing over it
  5. At the moment, I can’t stop listening to Brahms’ Hungarian Dance. Every time I listen to it I keep picturing Basil Faulty saying “it’s Brahms third racket!”

Thank you so much to (bargain)bookbliss. I’m very excited to do this blog, because it gives me a chance to share some things about myself that you don’t already know.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  4. Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

5 Facts about me:

  1. Ok this is a big one and I can’t believe I’ve never mentioned it on my blog before: I write fantasy novels. I know, this is a *whoa moment*- who-da-thunk-it? – but yeah, I like writing 😀
  2. So apparently, even some of my friends don’t know this, but I love to paint. I used to do art at school and kept it up when I left. At the moment, I’m obsessed with painting animals, but don’t really know why. (NB I’m too lazy to take a photo of anything new, so here’s an old one from A Level- freaky right?)hanselandgretel
  3. I do weird things in public aka I go out in pyjamas, I take mugs of tea with me to the shops and I *literally* sing in the rain- cos why not? (And since I’ve mentioned it, I might as well include this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w40ushYAaYA )
  4. I am English, with Welsh ancestry and I used to live in Scotland- this basically makes me an expert on all things British :p
  5. When I was a child I had a *really* overactive imagination. At one point, I convinced myself I was going to Hogwarts by writing a letter from Dumbledore and posting it to myself- I then skipped around the house yelling “I got in! I got in!” I also thought I was Peter Pan reincarnated and would practice flying by jumping off my bed (but didn’t everyone do that?). Oh and I thought I was an alien. I believed I could communicate with my “real” alien parents through dandelions. Yup- that’s a true story. I actually thought I was really wacky coming up with that, until I found out my friend always thought she was a dragon. Now I’m just really disappointed that I didn’t have epic dragon-related delusions as a child.

Phew- now I’ve got all that off my chest, I nominate:
