shut up and let me see your jazz hands..

i've seen this Q&A doing the rounds on various of the blogs i read regularly, so i hope it's ok if i join in with the fun..!

1. Are you named after anyone? not that i know of.
2. When was the last time you cried? probably a couple of weeks ago, when i last had a giant row with someone i care about..sometimes i go through phases of crying a lot, and other times i wonder what the fuss was all about, which is sort of the problem with being bipolar :(
3. Do you have kids? nooooo. hopefully one day i will be in a position where it would be a sensible idea, but not at the moment..
4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself? i think it would depend what kind of a mood i was in..i know that i can be a total nightmare sometimes, and completely irrational, so i wouldn't like to be friends with that "me" as i don't have the patience for it! my close friends clearly do though, and for that i am really grateful to them..which i hope they know!
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? probably more than is completely necessary, yes..

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? i can't say it's ever been something that has appealed to me..i went on a 'high ropes' course with my guides last september, where you had to climb up a pole and jump off to try and hit a suspended ball, and that was bad enough at the top (although i didn't think i was scared of heights..), so i don't think it's somethign i'll realistically ever do!
7. What's your favourite cereal? i'm not really a cereal person, i tend to forget to eat breakfast, and also i can't stand milk, but when i do have cereal it is always bran flakes, with some fruit and yougurt..
8. What's the first thing you notice about people? this is probably very predictable, but is totally true- their shoes!
9. What is your eye colour? blue
10. Scary movie or happy endings? horror movies are my favourite kind, the more gore the better! that said, i generally will go to see anything / watch any movies, i'm not fuusy!
11. Favourite smells? vera wang for men, fresh coffee, blowing out a candle..
12. Summer or winter? there are lovely things about each of them, i love the idea of chunky knitted hats and scarves, and wrapping up in lots of layers in winter..equally i love sunshine, and try to soak up as much sun as i can when it finally shows it's face in the summer!
13. Computer or television? i don't have a television (i don't see the point), so i guess it's computer..although nor do i have the internet at home, so i have to do all my watching on the pc via dvd, or more often, at a friend's house :)

14. What's the furthest you've been from home? i went on holiday to south africa several years ago now, and it was a great three weeks of new experiences, although probably not somewhere i would go to again now that i have been..
15. Do you have any special talents? not really..i taught myself to juggle one year on guide camp when we were learning circus skills, and i guess that is a talent of sorts.
16. Where were you born? worcestershire..we moved to shropshire when i was 8
17. What are your hobbies? i love sewing, dressmaking, and general crafting..
18. Do you have any pets? at the moment, until i can save up enough for my own tortoises, only fish which live in a tank in my office..
19. Favourite movie? i'm not sure about this one. it always used to be 10 things i hate about you, as i had a bit of a crush on heath ledger when i was a i do like a good gangster film, so casino and goodfellas are up there, but i also am loving breakfast at tiffany's recently.
20. Do you have any siblings? yes, two younger sisters, one is 21 and at uni, the other almost 14 and is one of my guide unit now :)
21. What do you wanna be when you grow up? i don't want to grow up particularly!!


  1. Oh wow you went on safari!! So jealous!

    I have to say it took me a few watches of Breakfast at Tiffany's to really 'get' it but I dod love it now, like everyone else!

  2. I love those pictures, Char. You are so beautiful when you smile. xxx

  3. I dont want to grow up either! :P Love the pics, great Q&A :)

  4. I love these posts. They are so interesting. Very brave doing the high ropes course. We had the opportunity to do the Go Ape tree tops course but I can't make it.
    Gangster movies are great! Your answer about not growing up made me smile. x

  5. These are my favourite posts! It really lets me know people straight off! :) I love that you don't want to grow up!!!

  6. Oh there is no way you'd get me on one of those high rope things. I don't mind heights but I need something solid under my feet or I start to feel very odd!

    And you're not a nightmare at all! You're an ace friend.
