The British Tag

Hellllllllo readers, it’s Friday which means it’s another book tag day which is always wonderful. However, something a little British rather than bookish from yours truly. Born and raised in Silverstone, Northampton, I’ve always been a little proud to be British. I love our odd way with words, I have an undeniable adoration of London and I am a sucker for Marmite and buttered toast. Stumbling upon this book tag I thought I would bring you a British tag for you to find out a little more about me.

How many cups of tea do you have a day? How many sugars?

This is probably my most fraudulent British quality; I don’t like tea a huge amount. I tend to drink two cups of peppermint tea or green tea per day; one when I get up and go for a shower and the second when I get into work.

Favourite part of your roast?

I guess all of it isn’t a sensible answer? I think maybe Yorkshire puddings covered in gravy. Gah

Favourite dunking biscuit?

I don’t drink a huge amount of tea, but you cannot beat a chocolate hob nob can you?

Favourite quintessentially British pastime?

I think picnics in the park in the summer; pork pies, mini scotch eggs and a lovely apple cider. Sounds bloody wonderful

“Favourite word?

I think ‘cor blimey’ may just be my favourite British phrase. For any of our friends over the pond it’s used as an exclamation of surprise. If I’m being terrible rude I also like the word bollocks but I’m a lady so should refrain from saying that one.

Cockney rhyme slang?

I don’t use a lot of cockney rhyming slang but Ruby Murray is most definitely a curry

Favourite sweet?

Flying Saucers, hands down.

What would your pub be called?

We have a wonderful pub in Stoke-on-Trent called ‘The Holy Inadequate,’ which I think is rather wonderful. If I had to pick, I think it would be ‘The Siren’s Call.’ I love Mermaids so that’s what I’m going to go with.

Number One British person?

Other than our lovely Lady the Queen; Audrey Hepburn and J K Rowling I would say.

Favourite shop / Restaurant?

The White Company, the fabric used is on pointe beautiful.

What British song pops into your head?

Spice Girls Wannabe.

Marmite?

Hell yes, buttered white toast slack with Marmite sounds pretty wonderful right now thank you very much

Blimey! So there yew go wonderful readers, somethin’ ter get yaaahr teef in’er, now I tag all me British pals ter complete dis ‘ere tag. Nuff said, yeah?

    Great tag, think I might just take you up on that one. I am a typical British tea drinker.

    I seriously love British people. I’ve been to various parts of England several times and love it more each time. I find you all lovely and charming, truly. While I was there the second time, Tesco was having a sale on Hob Nobs, so I bought 15 packages to take home with me. I finally found a store not far away that sells them, and I’m SO HAPPY!

    If anything, I can say this has been educational. I’ve not a clue on many things you talked about – but I shall research.

          Oh my word…someone who hasn’t experienced a chocolate hob nob…how very sad…are they not available worldwide??? They should be 🙂

    With Cockney rhyming slang, you keep finding new phrases you hadn’t come across before. This week I heard “Tin tack” for back!
