Seven Facts About Me
1. I always tie sweetie and crisp wrappers in a knot, like this:

Not sure why!
2. I'm a vegetarian and have been for 22 years.
3. My middle name is Agnes, after my Mum.
4. I own a pair of gorgeous red flamenco shoes, which I wore to a dance class I used to do. Unfortunately I moved away and there's not a flamenco class where I live now.
5. As my day-to-day, full-time job I'm a Web Developer.
6. There's a method to everything I eat, mostly with no sensible rhyme or reason. 
Some examples: KitKats should be nibbled around the sides first, then eaten in three bites thereafter, before licking my fingers and moving on to the next bit. With apples I have to twist the stalk, reciting the alphabet at each rotation, then punch the skin with it, again reciting the alphabet til the skin breaks. This is how you work out the initials of the person you'll marry. Fact.
Meals are usually eaten in a set order, and Smarties and Revels must be grouped into flavours/colours then eaten in order of least favourite to favourite.  NB: I'm fully aware this sounds mental!
7.  The only alcoholic drinks I can drink are the ones that taste like juice. I've tried my hardest to drink wine, but I just can't do it. Beer, lager etc, is gross and most spirits can only be consumed in a cocktail or alcopop. People tell me I'll grow to like it, those people are liars.

So there we have it, seven facts about me!

My Nominations

I would love to hear seven random facts about:
Monique from Bye Bye Blackbird
Kayleigh from Ruffles And Rabbits
Nora from Hello You
Chelsea from Love In Modern Life
I hope you lovely ladies can take part!

  4. Your job sounds amazing! I love your quirk with food too. The drinks that taste like juice are always the nicest, or so I find. I discovered a skittles cocktail the other day, bloody gorgeous! x

  5. Yum, that sounds good! I'll have to find a recipe for it! Thanks again for nominating me, it's always fun to read/reveal stuff! x

  6. This is brilliant. I laughed so hard at the food eating methods. I do something similar....but not quite so intense [cough*apple*cough] ha! I've always wanted to tie knots in packets but i just can't! Jealous of your skill!X

  7. Hahaha! At least I'm not the only one Shell! :D x
