30 day blogging challenge

I follow the lovely blog Beauty, Baby and Me and have read about her doing the 30 day blogging challenge. So I thought I would take up said challenge!

The rules are pretty simple, a topic a day for 30 days, as follows:

  1. A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
  2. The meaning behind your blog name
  3. A habit you wish you didn’t have
  4. A picture of somewhere you’ve been
  5. Favorite superhero and why
  6. Something you’re proud of in the past few days
  7. Plans/dreams/goals you have
  8. Nicknames you have; why do you have them
  9. Something you crave for a lot
  10. Your top 5 pet peeves
  11. Favorite foods and why
  12. Somewhere you’d like to move to or visit
  13. Favorite TV shows
  14. Favorite movies
  15. If you could spend 15 minutes with any celebrity, who would it be and why?
  16. Do you own a smart phone? Tell why you love it.
  17. What has been your best vacation memory?
  18. Bullet your whole day
  19. Discuss your views on religion
  20. If you had a million dollars to spend, how would you spend it?
  21. What is your guilty pleasure?
  22. What’s your favourite drink and why? Share the recipe.
  23. Write a letter to your teenage self.
  24. Write a letter to your future self.
  25. Write about the worst injury you’ve had
  26. What is your favourite quote?
  27. List all the places that you have lived
  28. Three things you want to say to different people
  29. Who were your three celebrity crushes when you were a teenager?
  30. Share a funny YouTube video

So seeing as it’s the first of the month, why not start today?

Here’s a recent picture: From our recent trip to Devon (this was the only non rainy day!)

And here’s 15 ‘interesting’ things about me:

  1. I have to draw my eyebrows on. They all fell out when I was pregnant and have yet to return. Sigh.
  2. I’m 5″8 but have size 5 feet. I fall over a lot.
  3. When I was a kid I got my picture in the front of the local newspaper. On stilts. Next to the lollipop lady. Right then!
  4. I don’t really like music. It’s ok, but I don’t put it on unless I’m doing the housework. I’m still stuck in the 90’s when it comes to music knowledge of any sort.
  5. I would like to get another degree some day. 2 just ain’t enough!
  6. I don’t have any fillings yet. Partly due to my dentist aversion I’m sure.
  7. I’m scared witless by clowns.
  8. I’m pathologically lazy. If I can get out of doing something I will. I’m only writing this so I don’t have to pack yet.
  9. I wear glasses, but only need them for one eye. I should get a monocle!
  10. I’m learning to drive and have been having lessons for three years because I’m scared shitless by roundabouts.
  11. I was brought up in the countryside but I’m a city girl now. The only thing I miss is the sea.
  12. My hair grows really fast. Like, ridiculously fast. I just wish that applied to my eyebrows.
  13. I’ve been around the world, and visited more than 30 countries.
  14. I’ve been writing a children’s story for about 15 years now (see fact 8)
  15. It’s taken me about an hour to write this list because I have terrible writers block – I’m really hoping this challenge will kick start my writing. I’m pretty sure I can write ok, but getting ideas is the hard part!



I’ve somehow managed to get myself nominated for ‘best new blog’ at the MAD Awards 2016 *does small squee* I would LOVE another nomination, if you have a minute.

  1. Yay welcome aboard the blogging challenge – I’m day 3 today! Nice to get to know bloggers a bit isn’t it. I could actually have written half of your facts about me – we have a bit in common! The eyebrows thing made me giggle though X
