Hello gorgeous people of the internet…..


I recently turned 32, I’d love to say I took some me time, relaxed went out to dinner, went shopping. Nope, to be fair I don’t celebrate birthdays its just another day in my diary! Maybe it’s because I grew up a Christmas baby and we all now how much fun that is! But I thought I would sit down and think of 32 random facts about me. Considering I’m fairly new at the ‘ol Blogging, I figure nobody knows that much about me….

  1. When I was 18mnths, I blatantly ignored my Mothers requests to stay off the freshly mopped kitchen floor. I preceded to slip, do the splits & break my pelvis, both my hips and two legs! This is my earliest childhood memory, traveling in the back seat of my dads car, with purple blanket (God is in the detail)  And the distinct sound of the saw when taking off the cast weeks/months later.
  2. The first song I learnt off by heart, was Eternal Flame by The Bangles. I was 2 & half years old.
  3. At nine I was politely asked to leave my Primary School because after months of bullying, I followed the girl to the bathroom, pinned her to the wall & threatened her. Not my finest moment but teachers and principles had done nothing. And I’d do it again if I had too.
  4. That Summer, I climbed a tree house in our estate my friend pulled on part of it, causing it to collapse. I fell 12ft hitting the ground and breaking my right ankle, missed starting new school by 8 weeks.
