Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!
Recently, well quite while ago I was kindly tagged by a couple of bloggers to do the A to Z tag and I’ve finally got round to doing it, so here’s my A to Z.
I hope you enjoy it and find some things out about my interests, hobbies, general life or shall we say me!
A – Aviation. This plays a huge part in my life, going to my first air show when I was just six weeks old. As I’ve got older, its become more of a hobby for me and I try to plan the summer months around the airshow season. I’m lucky that my other half Andy also likes aviation too.
B – Books. I love reading and try to read a little everyday. My favourites range from romance to saga, although I’ve also been loving the Sarah Knight books too.
C – Cleaning. I wouldn’t say I’m OCD about it but I absolutely love cleaning and find it so therapeutic. If I’m annoyed or upset, I’ll take it out on the cleaning and of course, I’m obsessed with Mrs Hinch.
D – Dungarees. I absolutely love them, jean versions, skirt/dress versions and shorts! you can wear certain type and brands pretty much for all occasions, i even have a pair of trouser style ones that to me look posh, i feel i could wear them to a wedding, although it would be unlikely, you never know.
E – Embroidery. I have a huge obsession with embroidered clothing. Big cosy sweatshirts or slouchy jeans with embroidered detail look so simple yet pretty.
F – Food. I love my food and I’m always thinking about what meals each day to have with Andy, although i do try and get him to suggest. His typical reply is grass, bread and butter!
G – Grumpy. I am the first too admit that I am so not a morning person and be so grumpy if I haven’t had my cup of tea and I’m sure Andy would agree with me.
H – Hearing. Over the last few years I’ve noticed my hearing has got worse and a lot of the time, I don’t realise people are talking to me. I finally plucked up the courage with Andy’s nagging to speak to somebody about it, and, after a long process, I now wear hearing aids. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest because I’m no longer missing out on what people are saying.
I – Italy. I really want to go to Italy so bad, its top of my current travel bucket list. I just want to go there, eat all of the food and see all of the sights. Although in typical Andy fashion he said he’d take me to an Italian restaurant with a back projection of Rome on the walls!
J – Jellyfish. I love how pretty they look and could spend hours in an aquarium just watching them float around.
K – Kindness. I’m a big believer of being kind. It doesn’t cost anything and yet random acts of kindness can make someones day. If everybody was kind, the world would certainly be a much better place.
L – Liquid Lunch by Caro Emerald is one of my all time favourite songs.
M – Malta. I absolutely love the island of Malta. It has always been my favourite holiday destination and I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve been back there. It was also the destination of my very first holiday abroad which was many years ago now.
N – Northern Lights. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with the Northern Lights. I love how pretty they are and can’t wait to book a trip to go see them. I did think about going to Finland to see them but I need to save a lot of money because the place I want to stay is expensive.
O – Organisation. I love being organised and have lists everywhere of things that I need to do and want to achieve. If I didn’t have those lists, I just don’t know how I would cope and I’d probably be in a right panic.
P – Pets. I love animals and currently i have a dog. I’ve mentioned her before my six year old Jack Russell cross Patadale named Trixie. She brightens up my day and is always there for a cuddle.
Q – Quiz. I love quizes whether its watching them on the tv or going on a quiz night, I love them. I might not be very good at them and might not get many answers right but I still find them a great way to pass the time and always learn something new too.
R – Ribblehead viaduct. If you don’t already know, Andy is a train driver (you can read all about him here). Over the last year he has been introducing me too all things train related and recently took me to see the famous Ribblehead viaduct which was such a pretty place.
S – Shopping. I’m definitely a shopaholic. I love shopping and will admit I do it every single week, despite not actually needing anything. My weaknesses are definitely shoes and anything from Primark.
T – Tattoo. I currently have one tattoo which I got a year ago. Its a heart with a Spitfire attached. Not only is the Spitfire my favourite plane, it was a fighter in its day and it always reminds me to fight for what you want, but more importantly if it wasn’t for Spitfire’s and other types around that time, we wouldn’t likely have the freedom we have today! its disheartening when you hear young girls walking past a airfield when we wait for a take off and hear them say “whats all the fuss about, its only a plane” for me, keeping my mouth shut wants to say that plane is probably why your here today and show some respect!
U – Unpacking. If I’m staying in a hotel, I have to unpack everything so that it feels like home. I definitely can’t just live out of a suitcase.
V – Vintage. I love vintage looking things as well as attending vintage inspired events. My favourite era has always been the 1940s and I love the glamour of the hair and make up of that era.
W – Wales. I’d love to explore some more of Wales. It’s part of my history because it’s where my dad’s family are from.
X – Xray. Whilst I’ve had quite a few xrays in my lifetime, I have thankfully never broken a bone.
Y – YouTube. I’ve always loved watching YouTube videos and always have them on in the background. There’s so many channels that I love but my current favourites are It’s Em, Laura Byrne, Miss Budget Beauty, Fleur De Force, Lydia Elise Millen, Nikki Ryan and The Elle Next Door.
Z – Zoo. I love nothing more than visiting a zoo for a day out and usually end up going to a zoo for my birthday. They are perfect for any age and I love that you never know what to expect. I’ve had many a good laugh when at a zoo and an animal is behaving badly!
