I do love a good tag! Thanks to Mollie over at Mollie’s Musings for thinking of me. If you have not checked out Mollie’s blog, and you love everything writerly, bookish, cute, inspirational, and down right fabulous, then head on over and give her a follow!
This tag is self explanatory, so without further ado…
What is your middle name?
Technically, I don’t have one. My first name is hyphenated: Kayleigh-Jane.
What was your favourite subject at school?
English Lit and media studies.
What is your favourite drink?
Devil’s Food Cake.
What is the last thing you bought?
For me, personally, I bought a shirt in the charity/ thrift shop. The very last thing I bought was a Tsum Tsum for my daughter. She collects the weird, little, wastes of money. Seriously, google them, they’re bizarre.
Is there anything I should know?
I developed hayfever this summer. My eyeball jelly swelled up and everything! (I have no idea what you actually call that stuff.)
Do you have any pets?
I have two dwarf hamsters called Lavender and Juno. They tried to kill each other, so now live in separate cages.
We also seem to collect garden snails. My daughter has a thing for making habitats, and tries to bring snails into the house. She found loads in my Nana’s garden, put them in a pot with grass and leaves, and left them in her kitchen- yep, they were in her fruit bowl in no time.
Hugo Boss Woman, but at the moment I’m wearing Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur.
What was the last picture you took on your phone?
My hubby and our daughter rockpooling. They caught fish, shrimp, and sea snails. After a few pics, they’re all safely back in their pools.
Do you speak any other languages?
Hmmm? If I got lost in Spain I wouldn’t starve, but I’m not fluent.
How many siblings do you have?
I have one brother and two sisters. My sisters are half sisters, but I don’t call them that because they’re not half of anything in my eyes! I’m the eldest, and my fourteen year old sister thinks I’m ancient.
What is your favourite shop?
Book shops!!! My hubby would say charity shops because I just can’t walk by one without going in.
Locally, we have a restaurant called BooKoos and they do the best burgers EVER. However, a short drive away, there is a farm called Roskillys. Roskillys has petting animals, nature trails, a restaurant that serves meat that has been reared on the farm, and they do the best ice cream in Cornwall!
What phone do you have?
Lumia something or other… I’m not really up on phones. It rings and texts, so I know that it works. I have a tardis phone case, though.
How tall are you?
I think I’m 5ft8 ish.
Can you cook?
Have you ever been stung by a bee?
Three times that I remember. My mum recalls some others. The most prominent memory is when my uncle was spinning me around by the wrists like Superman, and as he lowered my to the floor I knelt on a dying bee- ouch!
What is your best childhood memory?
I’m lucky to have many:
*Sliding down the stairs on a duvet with my brother.
*Boogie boarding at the beach.
*Going jumping (Jumping is the simple term we Cornish use for jumping from rocks and walls into the sea). We did it safely of course.
*Biking through the woods.
How can I not have great memories? I live here:
How would your friends describe you?
Monica! Not only do I love making lists and organising, I also get Hagrid hair in humid weather.
Watch TV or read?
Ebook of Paperback?
I have no preference. If I read an eBook and love it, then I will buy the paperback for my collection.
Plane or Train?
Train, but only because I have been on more trains in my life than planes.
What is your definition of family?
Why did you choose to be a writer?
I was born this way, baby!
Thanks again to Mollie for tagging me.
