3 facts about me:

  1. I’m double jointed and can turn my foot a 180 degrees and can sit with my foot like that for ages.
  2. I love eating peanut butter and cheese and onion sandwiches. Yes, I put the crisps inside my sandwich with the peanut butter 🙈
  3. I love crocheting amigurumi (toys/bears etc) but I can’t crochet a simple scarf. They never come out straight.20171002_201308

My answers to Molly’s Questions:

Do you have any favourite festive reads? if so, what are they?

I don’t currently have any favourite festive reads, but this year I’m hoping to read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. the last time I read this book was when I was at High School.

Who is your all time favourite book character?

This one is so hard to answer as I have so many favourite book characters, but I’m going to have to go back to my childhood favourites and say Eroyee and Peter Rabbit. They are just soooo adorable.

Are you planning on posting Christmassy content in December?

Yes I am planning to post a few Christmassy posts.

What is the one book you would recommend to anyone?

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. This is one of my all time favourite reads, and it’s the only one of the two books that I’ve re-read from my shelves.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Every year on Christmas Day we get together with our extended family and have a Christmas get together. That usually means about 20+ family members including the kids getting together. Although this seems to be getting smaller each year as many of them have either moved abroad or far away.

My answers to Darina’s Questions:

Which is your favourite ever book series?

Has to be the Harry Potter Series. I absolutely loved it and still do.

Do you ever go to the cinema more than once to watch a movie you really loved?

No I’ve never watched a movie more than once at the cinema. If I really loved the film I normally pre-order it on blu-ray so I have it as soon as it comes out.

Where is the most unusual place you have fallen asleep? *weird/funny question

When I was at school I fell asleep in the school library while listening to my teacher talking about something that was very boring.

Which is the best birthday/Christmas gift you have received to date?

I get great presents every birthday and Christmas. But if I have to choose one it would have to be when we flew out to Australia to visit my cousins at Christmas.

Do you play any musical instruments? If so, which, and if not would you like to learn?

I used to talk piano lessons when I was at school, and took art in several concerts, but shortly after starting my lessons I broke my arm and never went back to playing. I can still play some simple tunes.

  1. Congrats on the award! I also crochet, but I’ve never been able to make an amigurmi. It’s just simple scarves and dish towels for me! Also, thank you for introducing me to more book blogs! I followed them all 🙂
