Firstly, thank you so much to www.diariesofadramatic.com for tagging me to be the next person to do this tag! I’m not one to really talk about myself very much in ‘real life’ or on my blog so I feel this is a great tag for me to do in order for people to get to know me better.

Call me crazy but WINTER. I bloody love Christmas and cold, frosty Winter mornings. I also love New Years as I love getting together with all my friends, I love the feeling when you walk in from the blisteringly cold, windy weather to a cozy, warm country pub, I love the excuse of eating chocolate every morning in December from my advent calendar, I love snuggling up with Harry under at least 3 cozy blankets with a hot chocolate, I love watching my little dog get lost in the snow that is taller than her, I love seeing everyone with their crowns on from their Christmas crackers, I love going over to my Granmas to spend hours helping her make the Christmas pudding that no one ever eats, I love celebrating my birthday which is in February as it’s the one day where I don’t make myself feel guilty for doing nothing all day. I JUST LOVE WINTER OK. *drops mic*

Christmas. I mean did you read the previous speech?

Harry always seem to say I’m stronger than I think I am when I go to playfully poke or punch him but I just think he’s being overly sensitive tbh. I have the upper body strength of a mouse and can only do 7 press ups before collapsing, my legs are fairly strong though I think.

Q19. When was the last time you cried?
The day before yesterday with laughter. Basically, Harry was waiting for me outside my room at the top of the stairs and I was walking out fanning my face, having sprayed setting spray, and then he does the most innocent little wave back at me thinking that I was actually waving at him and then he realised and tried to hide it. It was obviously funnier at the time in person and probably doesn’t sound remotely funny typed out but either way I was cry-laughing.

A friend I’ve known for like 8 years that I’m meeting up with tomorrow for the first time in a month.

Me, obvs. Nooooo I’m joking, ummmm probably @melharding because she’s getting so close to 2000 followers on twitter and her insta and blog which are also absolute goals!
Q23. Have you ever had anything stolen from you?
Yep. I had my phone stolen at school and then another phone stolen in a club, I also had my debit card stolen in a club on the same night that I got spiked, this person also then went to go and try spend £300 on sunglasses with my card… little did they know that I had maxed out my overdraft already – lol fail. I also had my entire makeup bag stolen by some girls I went to school with as well. It’s funny because I know exactly who did it and they think that they got away with it.
Q24. Favourite country you visited?
Barcelona. yes I know it isn’t a country but I can’t say Spain as a whole as it’s the only place I have been to in Spain.

I would love to go to Iceland and Japan in the near future, both seem like fascinating places for different reasons entirely.

Hatchi makes me cry for 75% of the film, its so impeccable sad but also so beautiful as its based on a true story about a dogs loyalty. Also Marley and Me (Obviously) and Black Beauty. I now try and avoid sad films as I hate crying at films.

No one really has any nicknames for me because my name is so odd in itself I think aha. My dad used to call me Littlemutt and Mutt, and I sometimes get called Ray but thats about it. If anyone ever calls me ‘Ray-Ray’ though then I can’t be friend with them ever again as it makes me cringe way too much. Harry and I have our own names for each other that are completely random and have come about over time but I won’t cringe you out with them.

My dog, Maisy. She’s hilarious and tells the best jokes.
Q44. Heels or flats?
Flats unless their heeled boots…
Q45. What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?
I went interailling all around Europe with Harry last year for a month and it was probably the best month of our lived so far. Once we have both finished our apprenticeships we’d love to apply for a sabbatical travel around the world for 4-6 months!
Q47. What’s the thing you’re most proud of?
Getting three C’s at A-level not knowing about or getting any support for my dyslexia and ADD. I’m also incredibly proud of the person I’ve become having gone through hell and back at school but that’s way too deep to talk about in this tag.
Q48. What did you want to do with your life at age 5?
I wanted to be a horse. Yeah you read that right.
Q49. Dogs or cats?
Dogs. I love both but dogs are more fun and you’re able t communicate with them more than you an with a cat.
Q50. What’s the most important thing someone can learn?
To stop comparing yourself to others and trying to be like them. You are the best you there is so be unapologetically yourself and then you know that people love you for you and not who you’re faking to be which can be incredibly damaging.
Q51. Bath or shower?
Shower. Baths take too long to run and I find anything washing related a chore.

I love the Christmas scented ones! Especially gingerbread mmmmm.

Q56. What’s the first thing you do each morning?
Have morning cuddles with my dog Maisy and tell Harry about whatever I dreamt about last night before I forget even though I’m pretty sure he doesn’t care.

Q65. Where do you go when you need to be alone?
I don’t enjoy being alone, I have issues with loneliness so I try to avoid it and never get a feeling of wanting to be alone.
