Ten MORE Unusual Things About Me


I recently wrote a post entitled Ten Unusual Things About Me which went down pretty well - a lot of you liked it and even wrote your own posts, tagging others to do the same. I really enjoyed reading others' posts and learning some unusual things about everyone.

Since then, I've kept coming up with other funny facts about myself and thinking I wish I'd put that in the post! So I've been noting them down until I had another ten and have now put them all into a new post for your amusement.

Are you ready to learn ten more unusual things about me?

1. My first word was "Asda". For those who don't know, Asda is a supermarket chain in the UK. My dad used to be a manager there when I was little and my mum would take me to pick him up after work so I used to demand, "Asda! Asda!" whenever I wanted to see my dad (I don't know why I didn't just say "Dad", but y'know). 

2. When I was about three years old I wanted nothing more than to be a Care Bear.

3. I write with my right hand but do pretty much everything else left handed. I don't know if that means I'm ambidextrous or not because I can't write with my left hand (not well, anyway).

4. I've travelled a lot but have never suffered from jet lag, even after long flights. I'm a really nervous flyer, though. 

5. I've had the same hairdresser for the past 15 years because she always does my hair exactly how I want it. I actually drive half an hour from my house in London to her salon in Essex (where I used to live) because I don't trust anyone else to do it. 

6. I HATE mince pies.

7. I passed my driving test at the age of 21. I passed the theory first time but had to take the practical test five times because I failed the first four.

8. I had my wedding reception at the Boleyn Ground - the old football stadium for West Ham United - which has since ceased to exist. 

9. I love cooking and dream of having a big farmhouse kitchen with a range, an island, a larder, wooden beams everywhere and a cat curled up by the log fire.

10. I don't even know why there's a cat in my kitchen daydream as I'm more of a dog person. 

What's the most unusual thing about you?

  1. I think wanting to be a Carebear is a reasonable request. Right now my kids both want to be unicorns

  6. I'm so shocked that you hate mince pies - I love them; I couldn't think of anything better to eat!

    But i'm pretty much with you on the driving test - I passed at 21 on my fourth attempt! xx

    1. I kept failing because of such silly little things too, it was so frustrating because I was desperate to start driving.

  7. This was really interesting to read! I hate mince pies too as well as Christmas pudding, I always have to get myself something else for after Christmas dinner, it's usually some sort of cheesecake or chocolate fudge cake!

  9. I love that your first word was Asda!! So different to the usual mum or dad first words! I'm the same with the hairdresser fact too, I've had the same one all my life.

  12. I love this post! It's something different and perfect way of getting to know you. This was really interesting to read. To be a care bear would be perfect! Haha I love how this is something you wanted to be.

  13. I think it's so funny how your first word was Asda! And I can't stand mince pies either, now Christmas is coming up they're going to be everywhere eugh. And the care bears used to be my life growing up!

  14. I love reading these posts Nic, I always enjoying finding out more interesting and unusual facts about you. Asda being your first word is so funny and brilliant. Oh wow, yes I remember Care Bears, ha ha! They were pretty cute to be fair. I'm not that keen on mince pies either, I have like one a year and I've already had it for this year, ha ha. Thanks for sharing, fab post lovely! <3 xx

    1. One a year! That's funny. I can't remember the last time I ate one...probably more than 25 years ago! I don't even like the smell of them.

  15. This is really interesting, love that your first word was Asda, how funny!

  16. I'm not sure how unusual this is, since I'm American - but I have no idea what a mince pie is!!

    Must be a British-ism. But I love learning about people's cultures through casual exchanges like this. :)

    1. Really?! I didn't know you don't have mince pies over there. Consider yourself lucky, haha. They are horrible :)

  17. Cats are the best, that's why there is one in your dream kitchen! I love cooking too although i love baking even more! Asda... so funny as a first word!

    1. I'm not into baking so much, I prefer cooking meals and things because I can ad lib a little more and not have to stick to exact measurements. Plus I don't eat many cakes, biscuits etc anyway so I don't see much point in making them!

      Delete
  18. I'm honestly not a fan of mince pies either, don't worry! I love that your first word was Asda though!

  20. This is great! I laughed out loud at the Asda thing. So funny. I'm like you with the hands! Only the opposite, I write left and do everything else right handed. I've never suffered from jet lag either. I always find the first day of a trip really boring because everyone else is really sleepy and I can't wait to get going. Great post! x

    1. That's really cool - I don't think I've met anyone else who writes with one hand but does everything else with the other. My dad and brother are both lefties so maybe it runs in the family and that's why I'm a bit left handed, haha.

      Delete
  21. I know why there's a cat in your dream - cats rock! I'm with you on mince pies and fruit cake and Christmas pudding too - yuck. And I love that your first word was ASDA, that's hilarious! :)

  22. That’s so funny and cute that your first word was Asda!! Finding out first words you’ve said as a child is honestly so funny, I’m not even sure what my first word was. We all think it’s mom or dad but usually that’s never the first haha!

    No jet lag! WOW, I wish I never got jet lagged, it usually takes me a day or so to get used to a different timezone. But if I’m heading back home, I settle back in with no jet lag.
    
OH mince pies! I’ve heard a lot of people talk about how great they are on Twitter, but personally I’ve never tried them before!

    I’m trying to think of something unusual about me but I’m coming up blank, it’ll come to me eventually hahaha!

  23. Care Bears are awesome and I would want to be one, too! This made me giggle a bit but was such a cool idea.
