12 Fun Facts about me:
1. I've had more childhood injuries than you can shake a stick at, as the only girl in amongst many brothers, I had to keep my end up by proving I could do whatever they did. Consequently I have had one broken wrist, 2 wry necks (had to wear a collar for a month each time) one big cut to the leg and the scar to prove it, two concussions and one broken nose. I still have the banter with the boys but have since grown out of climbing apple trees and nicking all the fruit.
2. I'm really good at doing accents, my favourites include cockney, manc and scouse.
3. I can dance me, give me an empty dance floor, a pair of heels and a bit of funk and I can get down like nobodies business.
4. The first things I'm attracted to in a man are, his teeth, smile, laugh and smell. In that order. And obviously not if he has bad teeth or smells funny.
5. Things that irritate me: Rudeness, especially when people don't say thank you for small courtesies. People passing judgement without ascertaining the facts first/forcing their own conditions on other people. People who talk really slowly and don't finish sentences properly.
6. Things that make me smile: My fella. Memories of my dog marnie racing round and round the field on her walk, she's old now and can't do that anymore. Sunshine. Baileys and ice. Real log fires. Ska music/soul music. Love. Humour. Freshly painted toenails. People smiling at you in the street for no reason other than to smile. The little things.
7. I don't cry very often but when I do it's usually because i'm pre menstrual/poorly/watching some horrible feature on animal abuse/funerals.
8. I'm a loyal friend and once I've put my trust in you i'm a forever friend.
9. I have a massive, massive, massive thing for Idris Elba.
