Seven Things

I was tagged by Ann from Books on the Nightstand to tell you seven things about me. So here goes.

1) I fall firmly in the love it camp on Marmite. There is nothing like thick white bread, toasted, spread with butter and marmite and washed down with a cup of tea – the perfect comfort food.

2) I once woke up with a black tongue in Acapulco and thought it was from swimming in the sea! Turns out you shouldn’t have Pepti Bismol after drinking alcohol, it has a strange reaction.

3) I got to find out that we’re having a boy last Monday, due to the miracle of the ultrasound machine, so glad I don’t have to wait until June.

4) I am currently addicted to both Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares and The F Word. My husband says Gordan Ramsey is my pregnancy craving πŸ™‚

5) I am very impatient – see no 3 πŸ™‚

6) I am currently attempting to write my first book, it’s very, very hard but also the most enjoyable “work” I have done ever.

7) I take strange irrational dislikes to things (tomatoes, beer, TV shows, book covers!) and usually have to admit I was totally wrong.

I shan’t tag anyone but please do grab the meme if you want too and let me know if you do it.


  1. Gotta love those book covers!

    I love learning more about you! I’ve never had Marmie… is that horrible? Where in America would I get this? Because it’s not in my local grocery store, that’s for sure.

    I take irrational dislikes to things, too, like sauerkraut and raw potatoes. Who knows.


  2. *I meant Marmite* I do know what it’s called, I just can’t type this early int he morning.


  3. Congratulations on the boy! I do not blame you for finding out — there’s really no reason to keep it a secret anymore. It’s not “tradition” anymore than not having indoor plumbing is. If people could have found out in the olden days, they would have!


  4. Oh, I loved this, thanks for playing!

    Huge congrats on the little boy! As the mother of 2 girls, boys are an adorable but alien species in these parts.


  5. Lady Glam – Thanks! Marmite is SO wonderful it is like veggiemite but better and bizarrely my supermarket in the US stocks it in the baking aisle. In the UK it is with jams.

    Diana – Thank you very much, we’re so excited and I couldn’t have waited!

    Ann – Thanks and thanks for tagging me it was fun πŸ™‚


  6. I find bread and marmite comforting too! I don’t see why people hate it so much:P
    congrats for the baby!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour πŸ˜€
