I saw a link to a blogging challenge so I thought I would answer the questions:
Write your goals for the rest of the year.
Finish my cross stitch projects, meet or beat my reading target of 15 books for the year, go to more football matches, start saving for a new car, write more, go to new places and have fun!
If you could offer your 16-year-old self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to live your life, stand up for the things you want and don’t follow the path that everyone else tells you to take.
If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?
Intolerance of other people, if everyone learned to get along the world would be a better place!
If you could live in any time period of the past, when would it be and why?
The 1960’s/70’s so I could go and see all the groups I never got the chance to TRex, The Beatles, The Monkees, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, the list goes on!
How do you envision your life in 5 years?
I don’t plan my life, maybe I should start! I try to make the most of the situation I’m in at the time and hope it all turns out for the best. As long as I’m happy, healthy and loved then that will be good.
What is one of your biggest accomplishments in life?
I sung on TV as part of my school choir, apparently there were 15 million viewers at the time!
Post 7 random facts about yourself. Include a self-portrait.
I’ll spare you the self-portrait because I can’t draw.
I have a scar on my nose from chicken pox and a scar on my wrist from a smashed glass window, I got hugged by Roberto Di Matteo, I flew to Nashville with people I didn’t really know to see a concert, Marc Almond held the door open for me as I was walking into Selfridges one time, I’d love to drive a race car, I love watching live football matches.
Write about something or someone who you really care about.
I’m always writing about the people I care about, they’re probably sick of it by now!
What is your opinion on your body and how comfortable are you with it?
I’m getting more comfortable with my body as I get older. I work at trying to keep myself in shape but not with enough dedication to be skinny, I like my curves.
I don’t think I’ll ever consider myself beautiful, even though I was lucky enough to be told I am.
Post a photo of something or someone who made your day special.
Hmm I made today special but I’m not posting a picture of me :p
If you could spend 15 minutes with anyone, from any time period, who would it be?
Hmm tough one, either Winston Churchill or Marc Bolan.
What is your zodiac sign? Does it fit your personality?
Sagittarius. I just googled it and I guess it does apart from the self-confidence because I don’t always have enough of that.
What kind of person are you attracted to?
Apart from a love of football and the ability to make me laugh the guys I’ve been attracted to have little else in common.
I become attracted to people’s personality and then everything else about them becomes attractive to me.
Who was your first love and first kiss?
Oh god I don’t remember the name of the first boy I kissed, it was on holiday when I was about 13 maybe younger. My first love was a boy called Joseph from Junior School.
What is your current relationship status?
Hmmm that would be telling!
What is one thing you’re excited about?
What is your biggest fear?
That I will never fall in love and be loved in return.
How have you changed in the last two years?
The last year of my life pretty much completely changed me into someone new and it was a really great experience, I’m learning to I love the person I became.
What are your views on religion?
I’m an atheist. I believe everyone needs to have something that gets them through the day but for me that isn’t any God.
What are your highs and lows of the past year?
Highs: I think I’ll keep that to myself, but publishing a book today was a sharable one.
Lows: Depression kicking my arse!
How do you want to be remembered?
As someone you could rely on to help.
What are my fitness goals?
To be healthy and maintain a stable weight, tone up my curves a bit.
What are three things from your bucket list?
Travel the world.
See England win the World Cup.
Own a drop top Ferrari.
What is your greatest life lesson?
Being a good person is easy but it doesn’t mean you’ll get all that you deserve in return.

What is your favourite colour palette? What would you like to do with that palette?
Anything blue. I would paint everything blue if I could.
What is your favourite season? Include a photo.
Summer because everyone smiles more and you spend more time outside. You can go to the park and play football with friends.
I tend to spend more time sitting outside drinking and talking until it gets dark or cold and we all come running in.
Travelling is more fun too!
What is your favourite board game?
Hmm I don’t have a favourite. It isn’t about the game it’s about having fun with the company you’re in, especially when you all start drinking.
What is your guilty pleasure?
My music, I have some really embarrassing songs on my Itunes but I love them all!
Where are you happiest?
Anywhere and everywhere!
