I recently read a post by Kirsty from Effortlessly Excessive in which she answered random questions generated by a website online. I loved reading this post, and it was such a cool idea for a blog post. She challenged her readers to do this post too so here I am. I used this website to do this post, recommended by Kirsty herself. Here goes...

What is your favourite childhood memory?
This is a really nasty question, because there are so many amazing memories, I was very lucky to have had a fantastic childhood. It is a more general memory, but it is one of my favourites; spending time together as a family regularly. I grew up having dinner always round the table, with trips into town together at the weekends, and we often visited both sets of grandparents. It's a great memory to have that we were all so close.

What is in your fridge?
Lots of vegetables, soup, milk, various sauces, chicken, mince, yoghurts, ham, cheese - the usual stuff! I've recently just moved back in with my parents, so imagine a family fridge and that's what we've got!

Cats Vs. Dogs?
100% cats. Unfortunately my gorgeous cat Ben died on Sunday, but he was 17 and lived a happy life (I'd had him since I was 4!). He was the friendliest loveliest cat ever and I miss him so much already. Cats are so much easier than dogs too, and cuter I think!

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Definitely spag bol, it's my favourite meal and I never get tired of it. I've recently started making it with tomatoes instead of pasta sauce and it tastes even better - I think it is more authentic using fresher ingredients. I would happily live off this food for the rest of my life.

If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you do? 
I would invite all my favourite people over to my house, probably cry quite a bit but made sure I told everyone that I loved them alot. I'd probably have a bath, and read a book too because they are some of my favourite things ever. I'd definitely want to be surrounded by the people I love that's for sure. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 
For those who know me, it's safe to say I have a fair few pet peeves. Probably my biggest one though is people not being kind. Being kind really doesn't take much, and everyone would be so much happier if people just thought before they spoke, and realised that being kind is very important. I have little time for people who can't/refuse to be kind for whatever reason.

What is something you shouldn't say during a marriage proposal?
Yes if you don't mean it. How crushing for that person to go through such an important moment and probably very nerve racking experience to then a few months down the line to be let down. I think it is better to be honest if you can, although I can imagine it being extreme pressure on those who don't want to say yes but feel obliged to because they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings! 

What is your biggest regret this week?
I wish I had helped my mum more with jobs around the house. She has been amazing whilst Dan and I have been settling in, but I do need to do more, and I regret that I haven't helped more this week especially as mum has had a bad back this weekend, and has been very tired! That was definitely my biggest regret from last week.

Who are your favourite sports team?
Real Madrid, but literally because they are the only people I have ever seen play so I feel like I should say them! My family will probably wince reading this as they have always been hard-core Liverpool fans (I used to be dressed in Liverpool pjs when I was younger) so I apologise for that Dad!

What did you have for lunch yesterday?
I had pasta with ratatouille. I love having this lunch because it gives me enough energy for working in the afternoon, but is an easy way for me to have lots of vegetables too. 

What is your favourite pizza topping?
Extra tomato sauce to make it taste even better. My pizza is really odd, because I absolutely hate cheese so I'd have absolutely none of that on there. Usually I go for Pepperoni, Onions and Sweetcorn, although recently I've been loving just having veg on my pizza - peppers, tomato, onion and courgette!

Do you have a favourite party game or board game?
I adore the game where you have a person's name written on a post-it note and you stick it to someone else's forehead and you all have to guess who you are when you ask questions that can only be answered with yes or no. It's such a fun game! I love playing it with the girls, and can imagine it being super fun with your family at Christmas or something. 

Do you believe in a higher being?
 Who knows? I like learning about different religions and the higher beings they believe in, but my own personal view is that I'm really not sure. There could be a higher being, but equally, there may not be. I guess I'll have to wait to find out! 

What is the worst job you ever had? 
Probably doing a paper-round in the winter, that was always pretty horrible! It was so cold and so long and so annoying, plus some of it had some pretty rough houses so it was always scary going to post the paper because we had people shouting at us out of the window and stuff which was intimidating as I was only 13 or 14.

What is the first job you ever had?
The paper-round, or babysitting, were the first jobs I ever had. I definitely preferred babysitting! Especially because it was in the warm, and I was being paid to watch telly (although of course I made sure the children were OK!).

I loved writing this post, thanks Kirsty for such a great post idea. I loved answering some really random questions, and I hope you enjoyed reading them as well. 

What would you answer to these questions?
