This morning I saw one of my favourite creative blogs Moorea Seal do this "A-Z of me" (it sounds better if you pronounce the Z like an American) and she invited her readers to do the same on their blogs. In a undiluted narcissistic way I thought it may be nice to share a little bit more about me, seeing as if you follow this blog you'll be seeing and hearing a lot of me as I take you on my travelling adventure.
A. Age: Cruising towards 30, or specifically I am "twenty-fine"!
B. Bed size: I unashamedly love sleeping in massive beds and having to go on an exploration to find NewMan.
C. Chore that you hate: Hmm I love ironing, doing laundry, dusting and polishing but I really don't like taking the bins (trash) out.
D. Dogs: Never had one but have mellowed from a bonafide "not a dog person" to thinking about possibly maybe one day getting one...
E. Essential start to your day: A big mug of hot, strong but milky tea.
F. Favorite colour: Pink
G. Gold or Silver: BOTH! I love to bling...
H. Height: 5'8"-ish
I. Instruments you play: Saxophone (tenor and alto) - I only wrote about this the other day, spooky!
J. Job title: Hmm. I'm currently an "Inbetweener" as in I'm in between jobs. Having worked in the City for the last few years I'm about to experiment with a new career as freelance writer/researcher as well as advising small businesses, freelancers and new bloggers about social media and blogging content.
K. Kids: Not yet, thanks.
L. Live: Once upon a time in the Bush, now temporarily in Angel but I'm about to be a full blown, never-stopping citizen of the world.
M. Mother’s name: Mamma Bird.
N. Nicknames: Bird, Birdie, Funtime (hence name of my Etsy shop) and many others.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Aged 9 to have my appendix out and aged 18 to have my tonsils out. There's not much left of me now...
P. Pet peeves: Noisy breathing, rudeness and unnecessary agression on the tube or streets of London, ungratefulness.
Q. Quote from a movie: "I'll think about that tomorrow..."
R. Right or left handed: Right on, sister.
S. Siblings: Two big little brothers and I love them both dearly.
U. Underwear: Check.
V. Vegetable you hate: Sprouts. Sorry Mum.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: A few but all thankfully detecting unbroken bones.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Pasta, soups and cakes; I make great cake.
Z. Zoo animal: Monkeys, tigers and penguins, oh my!
Well that entertained me for a few minutes and hope it provided you with a few half-interesting additional tit-bits about me. If you want to know more have a look at the About the Bird page, and if you want to ask me something specific you can email me to ask.
