Christmas, tag

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you to Katy from What Katy Said for the nomination. My Christmas Tag post went up on Friday but here are seven random facts about me:

1. I was born with one kidney – it has had no major impact on my health, not even when pregnant. Despite a biology teacher once telling me I would probably never have kids and be on dialyses by my 30’s, thanks again Miss!

2. I was adopted when I was 8 weeks old. I’ve known my whole life there was no shock reveal day – which I think I’m thankful for.

3. I have 5 tattoos. The one on my ribs hurt the most.

4. I have never broken a bone (jinxed myself now I’m sure) and the only surgery I ever had was to have my appendix removed.

5. I’ve never waxed or plucked my eyebrows. I did shave a chunk out when I was around 11 and denied that I had done anything despite missing the middle of my brow. I was lucky to be born with ”penciled eyebrows”. Honestly, never knew they were such a big deal until I went to college.

6. I have an addiction to converse – I think I have around 12 pairs now. I wear them almost everyday.

7. I participated in the Guinness world record for the longest ring-a-ring-a-rosey when I was in primary school. I’m sure we’ve been beaten by now though.


Christmas Facts:


1. Every Christmas Eve my whole family goes for dinner together.

2. My favourite Christmas decoration is a wind up snowman cookie jar my granddad got me from Waterford Crystal.

3. I get new pyjamas from my Mom every Christmas Eve.

4. Christmas night ends with lots of my family gathering in my Mom’s house for a ‘social gathering’.

5. I never got a puppy or a pony for Christmas even though I asked Santa like 100 times! 

6. I miss the treasure hunts my Mom used to make for me every Christmas morning (yes I’m a huge child!)

7. Every year I would search the house for my Christmas presents so my Mom would have to lock them in a cupboard and keep the key with her at all times. 

(Only realised when I had done 7 random facts that it’s meant to be Christmas themed, so two for the price of one here)

  1. I really want to send you on a Christmas treasure hunt and have a pony waiting for you!!!
    A tattoo on your rib sounds very painful, I am not sure I could cope with any!
    Very jealous of your eyebrows, I have ruined mine from plucking them as a teenager. BIG lol for you denying you had shaved them though hahaha!!! xx

  2. Lovely post. I to shaved a big chunk out of both eyebrows when I was 11! Completely denied it and told my parents that it was the shampoo i used!! How did I think they’d believe that?!!
