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
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
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.
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?
