25 things...

Thanks Crystal for your 25 things. You've asked me to do the same but I feel you have said half of mine already!

Ok, so here goes....

1. English was my worst subject at school and now I'm teaching it. That's why I'm strict on pronunciation and accent and can't help any of my students understand Shakespeare.

2. I hate being blonde and pale. Give me skin that tans and brown hair....

3. I did karate throughout my adolescence for 5 years. I'm a brown belt (the one below black). I loved doing this sport but when I moved away from home to go to uni I couldn't continue as I couldn't find a karate club in my area that did the same style of karate.

4. I'm welsh, but since living in France I've started saying I'm English as I'm so demoralised by the blank looks when I say I'm Welsh.

5. I hate spending time cooking. Such a waste of time considering it takes 10 minutes to devour it after spending 2 hours cooking it.

6. I've started knitting. My grandma was a tailor and my mum is very good at crafts. I want to learn to be as good as them. I can knit simple things easily but want to get good at it!

7. I am a cat person. I love them and want one but also believe cats should have an outside area to call their own so I am (un)patiently waiting until we get a house with a garden. Could be waiting a long time.

8. I hate the wind. It's the worst type of weather. It makes me angry. Hot weather comes in a very close second.

9. I love being made a fuss of at my birthday but hate being the centre of attention. I'm the quite one in the group.

10. I'm very scared of spiders.

11. If I find a hair in my food, even my own, I cannot eat any more at all. I have to leave the table to concentrate on not being sick.

12. I prefer silver to gold jewellery.

13. I am shocked at the way British girls dress when they go out when I return home. Imagine that I used to dress like them only a mere few years ago. French girls favour warmth and practicality over not wearing a coat to save on the cloakroom fees.

14. Don't be offended if I don't say hi to you if you're on my left side when we meet in the street. I didn't see you. I have no left-hand vision.

15. I rock at playing the fairground game 'horse derby' where you have to roll a ball into holes to make your horse move forwards. The last time I played I was asked to leave by the owner as I'd won 5 games in row.

16. I love singing although I am the first to admit I'm not great! It's the best way for me to de-stress. I'd love to take singing lessons so I could sing in public.

17. I love roller coasters (but only the type where you have a head-brace.)

18. I drink an obscene amount of tea. Hey, I'm british, that's my excuse. I now drink tea without milk though as the milk here in France is questionable.

19. I am very quick to be hungry and yet don't have a big appetite when I do eat. I'm a little and often kind of girl.

20. I can do the finger splits with my index and middle finger

21. I love pickled shallots and pickled beetroot and can eat lemon without pulling a face.

22. If I was animal I would be a cat in a good home. They get to be selfish and pampered at once.
23. I wear a lot of red clothes but wouldn't want red paint in my house. I love yellow in houses but hardly own anything yellow in my wardrobe.

24. My favourite films from my childhood are The Goonies and The Labyrinth.

25. Horses smell bad. It's the truth. I'm sorry. It was never a childhood dream of mine to have a horse much to the relief of my parents.

Well, there you go. No particular order or importance. Hope you learnt something and/or didn't fall asleep.

Bon dimanche!

Re: #4 - you should move to Bretagne. There, they will automatically love you if you say you're Welsh and hate you if you say you're English!
