20 Random Facts About Me

I thought this would be a good way of giving a bit more insight into me as a person! So here we go, 20 random facts about me:

1. I'm obsessed with mushrooms and toadstools and find it really hard not to buy things with mushroom motifs.

2. I started learning to sew when I was 8 years old and have been able to use a sewing machine since I was 9. I learned on a vintage Singer machine.

3. I have no tattoos, although I think they look pretty.

4. I also have no piercings, not even in my ear lobes.

5. I really like succulent plants, especially sempervivum, and keep trying to grow them, with varying degrees of success.

6. I take my coffee with milk and one sugar.

7. I didn't like coffee or tea at all until about 2 years ago, now I drink them every day.

8. I have to have separate mugs for coffee and tea. The coffee mug does not get used for tea and vice versa.

10. My favourite colour is red.

11. I don't drink alcohol.

12. My favourite animals are deer, cats, and pygmy goats.

13. Bubbles will always cheer me up, whatever mood I am in.

14. If I was a Disney princess I would be Ariel, as we both have blue eyes, red hair, hoarding tendencies and are very derpy.

15. I love wearing boots so much that I want to wear them all year round, even in the summer. 

16. I once owned 12 teapots after keeping on buying them from charity shops. I still love teapots, but I felt that 12 was a few too many, and gave some away.

17. My favourite painting is Aryadne by J.W. Waterhouse. I like a lot of Waterhouse paintings, they are incredibly beautiful.

18. When I was a child I wanted to be a nurse/ballerina when I grew up. My plan was that I would be a nurse by day and a ballerina by night.

19. I have a worrying obsession with goats cheese. I love goats cheese.

20. I used to have hair that was so long I could sit on it. Eventually I got fed up with it and cut it off when I was a teenager. I've regretted it ever since!
