Ten Things You Wouldn't Know By Looking At Me

When I saw the prompt for this week's Listmania I was more than just a little excited. It feels like forever since I last wrote a post filled with riveting bits of information about yours truly. In fact it appears as if I may have gone the whole of 2013 without one Ten Things You Probably Didn't Need To Know About Me type of post.

Oh the horror!

Not wanting to make the same mistake in 2014 I present to you

  1. I have only ever lived in the same one horse town. Ironically I grew up with the strongest desire to leave as soon as I could. When push came to shove though the time just didn't feel right and I have been here ever since.
  2. I like to go running. As a regular reader you are probably well aware of that, but the list is all about things you can't tell by looking at me. There are certainly no visible physical signs of my love of running at the moment. I hope that one day that will change.
  3. I struggle to think of interesting things about myself. After sharing 30 awesome things about myself and 10 things you probably didn't need to know about me, coming up with another 10 interesting points is proving to be more than just a little tricky.
  4. I am often a lot harder on myself than I need to be. Point three is a prime example.
  5. I love to cut corners whenever possible. In fact sometimes I spend so much time and effort thinking about an easier way to do something that it probably would have been easier to have gone and just do it in the first place.
  6. I have tried studying for two different degrees. I am still without a degree. I am thinking of giving it one more go. Third time lucky and all that.
  7. I am rather superstitious. There is no way I will willingly walk under a ladder, however Friday the 13th and black cats are a bit lucky as far as I am concerned.
  8. Stuck for ideas for the list I asked Mr Awesome for a suggestions. Apparently, according to him, I like to feed people. Which in some ways is a bit true. Making food for people for special occasions, does thrill me, what does not, is feeding children dinner each and every night.
  9. I love Hugh Grant. Particularly in Love Actually and About A Boy. But then find me someone who doesn't.
  10. I am easily distracted and often bore easily. As evidenced by the lack of detail in the last few points on any list I make.
This post is also joining in with the fun of The Lounge, hosted by Tegan

  1. thanks for linking up sunshine xxx I love Hugh Grant in Sense and Sensibility as well :)

    1. My pleasure lovely! Thanks for hosting, I am not sure I have seen Sense and Sensibility. Oh the shame

  2. Hello Rhianna! Love Hugh Grant especially in Mickey Blue Eyes! Love that movie!
    My parents are now back to Canada and I’m just getting back into the blogging world today. I’d like to wish you a Happy New Year 2014 filled with everything you want and love. All the best to you and your family! And, looking forward to follow your blog this year too!

    1. Oh I have seen that for ages! Glad you had a lovely time with your parents. Thanks so much for the kind words. Looking forward to keeping up with all you get up to as well

  3. Point one: Me too! (Well since I was 7 anyway).
    And I love Hugh Grant in anything! He plays the adorable, bumbling fool so well and even when he's an arrogant, self-centered twat he's still adorable.

  4. You've found someone who doesn't like Hugh Grant. Me. But I'm weird. I'm also easily distracted and have lived in roughly the same area all my life.

  5. Ah ha so you're a feeder!!! My mum is a feeder, they are the nicest sort of people, sadly I'm an eater, hence my 6-month pregnant look right now - I LOVE BREAD! xx

  6. I have started 2 degrees as well, not sure if I really want to go back for number 3 though. I have looked at some creative writing courses but I kind of want to learn for the sake of learning rather than having to do things to a schedule and with assessment.

    Thanks for linking up with us at The Lounge!

  7. #5, that is so me!

    I also struggle to come up with the right number of things for lists like this and almost always one of them is about how I am struggling to think of stuff! Lol!


Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses to you, thanks for stopping by, it really means a lot, you taking the time so say hi. I try as much as I can to write a reply but if for some chance I don't get to it please know that I always read them.
