25 random facts

What, you didn't want to know 25 random this about me? Well if not, look away now, if you're a little intrigued, then keep on reading. I'm a right old nosey parker and quite enjoy reading these types of posts & hopefully you I'll too!

1. I am extremely accident prone but have never broken a bone-I managed to damage my Achilles on holiday in Oz just by jumping off a rock :s

2. I have lived in Wales all my life (except my 3yrs in Uni) and speak fluent Welsh but I don't have an accent people can place.

3. I haven't been to a dentist in at least 9 years-I am petrified of them.

4. When I was 7, my big brother threw a rake at me which landed spikes first in my head-cue driving to hospital with a rake sticking out the window. Safe to say my big bro was in a lot of trouble! Now I just have a number of little scars on the top of my head.

5. I have been with my boyfriend for nearly 9yrs-we met before I went to Uni & didn't intend on anything serious (because I was moving to Bristol for 3yrs) but it seems to have worked :)

6. I am cold all of the time-I suffer with reynauds so I'm always looking for ways to stay warm (not great when the bf is ALWAYS hot & complains when the heating goes on).

7. I am such an emotional person-it's safe to say that I cry at least once every day. Most people refuse to come to the cinema with me if we know its going to be sad-My Sisters Keeper was not the wisest choice of film for me to watch at the cinema

8. I have 2 brothers-one older who would've been 30 by now and a little one who is 15 (who isn't so little).

9. I'm the first person in my family to get a degree (which is a 2:1 BA Hons in Law & Marketing).

10. I have a phobia of fish-any kind, real or not-even a picture of Nemo can give me panic attacks.

11. I love driving-I passed my test when I was 17 (with 14 minors) and have been driving all over the country (& a the way to France) since. I drive a little Fiat 500 called Giuseppe!

12. I am hard of hearing and will need a hearing aid in my left ear sooner rather than later.

13. I don't like alcohol much-I've definitely grown out of my drinking years and now find alcohol quite disgusting.

14. I hate clubbing-nothing fills me with dread more than when my friends suggest a night out. I would much prefer to stay in (I'll go to the pub if I'm really made to).

15. I can't stand the smell of cooked mushrooms & the taste is even worse BUT raw and I could eat them all day long!

16. I drink so much tea-a day is not complete without a cup of tea (some may say I drink too much).

17. When I was 3, I was a flower girl at my Uncle's wedding and because I was the only girl in the bridal party with straight hair, I had a perm-unsurprisingly, it was awful!

18. I don't want children-people always tell me I'm still young and WILL change my mind, but I don't see it happening and I'm more than happy with that.

19. I sleep a lot & I find it really easy to fall asleep-I can sleep pretty much anywhere.

20. Only my school friends and dad call me Catherine-when I went to Uni I started introducing myself as Cat so that's what most people call me now.

21. It drives me insane when people call me Cath or wrote Kat-my own Nanna writes Catherine with a C but Kat with a K?????

22. I'm the only person in my family that doesn't wear glasses-I used to in high school but now I have 20/20 vision- go me!

23. I'm a very organised person-it stresses me out that other people I know aren't as organised. Give me a headset & call me Monica!

24. I was a total teachers pet in school-I would constantly talk in classes but never got told off because I was always being a goody-two-shoes in everything else! I still am a teachers pet & will often go in to say hi to my teachers when picking up my little brother from school!

25. I have a serious love affair with New York-I'm not a fan of going on holiday to the same place more than once with the exception of New York-everything about it is just so magical! I will spend NYE there in the near future-I'm determined!

So, there you have it-25 things you probably would've made it through today without knowing, but now you do! Hope you enjoyed.


  1. I really love these posts! Giuseppe is so cute! (feel like this is the worst comment ever sorry!)

    Hannah xx

  2. Ah I am soooo nosy so absolutely love reading these posts! X

  3. I am soo nosy I love these posts- it's nice to get to know people. Hate the dentist too! Haven't been in about 5 years it terrifies me :( I looove alcohol though lol- I will never say no to a glass of wine- although I do hate clubbing. Horrible, noisy places! X

    1. Yeah, it is nice to learn a little bit more about the blogger! Ugh, I honestly don't know how people go for regular check ups-the thought of it just petrifies me :( HAHA you can have all my wine then! XX

  4. So jealous of your fiat 500! Can I just say how much I loved the Friends reference haha. Also, did you enjoy living in Bristol? Looking at going to UWE for Uni in september so keep quizzing everyone I hear has ever lived there, hope you don't mind! xx

    1. Hi Victoria-thanks for your comment! I do love little Guiseppe, perfect little runaround car :)
      Ummm did I enjoy living in Bristol-not really to be honest. I went to UWE too & the Uni is great, don't get me wrong but I didn't like Bristol as a place (but I did have a bf back in North Wales which is a good 4 hours away). But, I am the only person in my friends group that didn't enjoy it-they loved it & one has stayed & bought a house theepre so can't be that bad! It's what you make of it :) sorry I could be much help! X

    2. Thank you for replying, no that is helpful. I agree that it is what you make of it but having your boyfriend four hours away can't have been easy. Thanks again! xx

  5. Great list!

    1. Thanks lovely-it is a cutie (much prefer I to my little mini) xx

  7. Love these posts! Soo jealous of your car- I love the Fiat 500s!! x

  8. I am also so nosy, and love these posts too :) speaking welsh is awesome, and strangely, my sister is also afraid of dentists! It sounds like you've encountered quite a few injuries during your life, and 5 is lovely. My friend also has Reynauds, and it looks so painful! It hasn't helped with all of this cold weather I suppose :( congratulations with 9! I am also so in love with NY, except it's the idea of going for me, I've not been yet, but I will be going! And, spending New Year's Eve there, that's a promise! Hehe, love your blog, so I followed you xx

  9. I'm so accident prone too and your car is amazing, lucky girl! Was great getting to know more about you

    A little bit Unique

  10. Imagine a person who dreams of having fake degrees one day and the other day he gets a job in FMCG company of his desire. After reading this post I am overwhelmed to see the creativity :)
