As I thoroughly enjoy making lists, I thought this would be a fun and quirky way for you all to get to know me a bit better. I will go through the alphabet and for each letter, I will choose up to 5 words, beginning with that specific letter. This will include anything and everything I can think of!
Ami, Amusements & Avengers
My name, obviously. When I was younger, you could always find me at an amusement arcade, especially the 2p machines… actually, you probably will still find me there! I LOVE the Avengers – It was the first superhero film that made me fall in love with superheroes… and Loki.
Baffled, Blunt, Butterflies, Baked Beans & Badges
It doesn’t take a lot to baffle me. People who know me really well, they would say I am blunt and straight to the point. Butterflies are very special to me – not only do they represent growth, but they are my lucky charm too. I love baked beans, beans on toast, jacket potato and beans, they are very yummy! I’ve got a fast-growing collection of badges which I will share on my blog at some point, some funny badges, awareness badges, rude badges – my Etsy wish list is currently full of badges!
Charity, Chatty & Concerts
Charity has had a special place in my heart from the age of 15. I have volunteered with 3 different charities, Barnardo’s, Scope and Ataxia UK. When you get to know me, I can talk for England! During my childhood, I was fortunate to be able to attend 4 – 6 concerts a year, mainly Westlife, Boyzone, McFly, etc.
Digestives & Dogs
Digestives are my favourite biscuits. I have 2 dogs, Max & Molly, both Border Terrier cross Jack Russell – Max is more Border Terrier and Molly is more Jack Russell.
Ewan is my husband, my best friend, my everything. I’m really grateful for him sticking by me and supporting me through everything since we’ve been together.
Fizzy-Free & Fundraising
I was addicted to fizzy drinks for as long as I can remember, I have been fizzy-free for almost 2 years now! I love fundraising and attending fundraisers, I love the atmosphere and they are so much fun!
Green, Gullible & Gamechanger
Green has become my favourite colour, especially emerald green. I am 100% gullible. I received the Gamechanger Award from Scope, my first ever award and I’m still convinced they got the wrong person!
Happy, Hopeful & Hungry
Considering what I have been through, especially in 2018, I am generally a happy person, unless I haven’t slept enough then I can be a tad moody, but who isn’t? I had always thought negatively towards the future but now I am very hopeful and looking forward to seeing what happens next. I get hungry very quickly, especially just after waking up from a nap.
Ice Cream & Irish
Love ice cream! Especially vanilla and strawberry. I have a soft spot for the Irish accent
I love jokes, I am the sort of person to remember them in inappropriate situations and burst out laughing
Kind & Kung-Fu Panda
Everybody says I am kind, I like to think I am too! Kung-Fu Panda, don’t even get me started on that film. I will never watch it again, nope, never! That scene when he broke a floorboard – yeah, I jumped out of my seat… in a packed-out cinema! I couldn’t tell if everyone was laughing at me or at the scene!
Leggings, Lists & Loki
I stock up on leggings, I buy 5 pairs each time I go to Primark, which can be every few months. So, it may look like I am always wearing 1 pair but I do have loads of other pairs. I have always had an obsession with making lists – from an early age, each time a new Argos catalogue came out, I made a list of what I wanted and had no intention of buying them, ha! Unless it was for Christmas then I would be sure to make note of the catalogue number and the page number so my parents wouldn’t miss it. I adore the God of mischief, Loki, totally not because he is played by Tom Hiddleston!
Marvel, Mature & Motivated
Marvel is my favourite franchise. From an early age, people used to tell me that I was ‘too mature for my age’. I am 100% motivated to make the best out of what I can do and make the best out of my life
Nephews, Nieces, Notebooks & Nonograms
In total, Ewan and I have 11 nephews and nieces – they are our mini Avengers. I have come to the conclusion that I may have an obsession with notebooks, I currently have about 15… they’re just so pretty and useful! I’m addicted to nonograms, a couple of months ago I had no idea how to complete them, now I have an app on my tablet with endless nonograms. Passes the time very quickly!
Orange juice is what helps start my day.
Passionate & Patient
No matter what I do, I give it my all and put my heart into it. I’ve always been a very patient person.
I have a tendency to ask the most bizarre questions. Ever since I was little, I have asked everyone ‘Why can’t I see myself unless I look in the mirror?’ It just baffles me!
Ridiculous, Romantic & Raising Awareness
Like above, I say the most ridiculous things – well not to me anyway. Deep down, I am a hopeless romantic. I’m absolutely driven to raising awareness, and I will continue to do so for as long as I live!
Scope, Sarcastic, Socks & Superheroes
Scope is a UK based charity with a vision to achieve equality for disabled people. I absolutely love what they do and I love being part of their online community. I am sarcastic, love a bit of banter – I think that’s the base of mine and Ewan’s relationship. I have an obsession with socks, not plain ones but pretty, novelty and character socks. If ever you see me in Primark, you will find me in the socks area as this is my #1 place to go to first! As you probably have gathered by now, I am obsessed with superheroes!
Tattoo, Twitter, Toast & Tom Hiddleston
I have 1 tattoo, a butterfly on my wrist, which initially represented my battle with Anorexia, but as more events have unfolded throughout the years, I look at it to remind me that no matter what, I will come out the other side stronger. Twitter is my favourite social media platform. Toast, I love toast, YUM! I LOVE Tom Hiddleston, he is an extraordinary actor and his handsome looks are a bonus too!
Undercover Superhero, Understanding & Underwear
Undercover Superhero is the name of my blog and I love my blog so much! I really don’t know where I would be today without it! I am a very understanding person. Like socks, I love pretty, novelty and character underwear.
Vans & Video Games
Vans are my favourite brand of shoes, I have 1 pair, for now. I did have a stunning pair of pale gold Vans to wear for the wedding, which I’ve now given to Marie because those shoes deserved to be danced in and I know she will dance to her hearts content in them. I used to love playing LEGO games, the first LEGO game I fell in love with was LEGO Batman and I made sure to get all the achievements and 100%!
Westlife, Wheelchair, Writing, Witty & Weddings
I have been a huge fan of Westlife since the age of 4 and it does break my heart that I can no longer hear their music. I am a wheelchair user. I was always told that my writing was terrible and it always had the same ending – it really is overwhelming that I now receive so much positive feedback about my writing, thank you all so much!
I like to think I’m witty, I am known for a few wise cracks here and there. After planning our wedding, I enjoyed it so much that I hope I can get involved with more wedding-related things!
The XBOX was the first ever console I’d actually bought myself; I was absolutely devastated when it stopped working, but I had a blast playing various games on it!
Yellow & Youngest
I have always disliked the colour yellow. I am the youngest, I have 3 older sisters.
I loved Zelda, it was my all-time favourite game on the Nintendo 64, especially Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask.
Have you completed an A-Z list of things that are relevant to you? I’d love to read them!
