Here's another 'get to know me' tag post. I have others that you can read if you've missed them. They can be found by clicking the 'get to know me' label.
#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
I'm generally called Karen but Mum will sometimes refer to me as 'baby' (I'm the youngest) 'Mouth' (I'm noisey) 'Big Ears' (If I'm listening in) Dad sometimes talks about me being... ** brace yourself ** 'Inky-Pinky-Little-Stinky, Nappy Bag or Stinker' (from my younger years!) My husband calls me 'Kaggie, Kaggles, Kaglet' or anything else that starts with 'Kag.'
#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
If I eat a pie from the chippy, I take it out of the foil and use my mouth to remove the crust using the foil as a little bin. I hate pie crusts.
#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I really hate being near hot water. In the call centre where I used to work there was a vending machine that gave hot drinks in a normal plastic cup - no thermal packaging or anything! People would ask me to get them one when I went to the cold drinks machines and I had to refuse and look seriously wimpy.
#4. What's a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you're alone?
Adele - Hometown Glory
#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
When you do something for someone, for example hold a door open and they don't say 'thank you.'
#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
If I'm feeling awkward or nervous I will typically geto my phone out and click a few buttons although I'm not actually doing anything.
#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
If you're stood at the foot of the bed (facing the headboard) I'm on the left. If we stay in a hotel then I will basically always choose the side that's furthest from the door so if an axe murderer gets in they get to my husband first.
#8. What was your first stuffed animal && it's name?
I had a cat called 'Pussy' - no sniggering.
#9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?
Anything cold and not coffee!! I don't drink tea or coffee although I do like fruit iced tea.
#10. What's the beauty rule you preach.. but never ACTUALLY practice?
Heat protectant - 95% of my adult life has been me not using it.
#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Away from the shower head. I absolutely hate getting water in my eyes!
#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
I used to be double jointed and I can turn my hands a pretty good distance around.
#13. What's your favourite 'comfort food' that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?
Chocolate. Loooooove chocolate. It's so cliche.
#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
"Not gonna lie" It's because Leighannsays on YouTube says it. I'll say something like "I've always loved that, not gonna lie"
#15. Time to sleep- what are you ACTUALLY wearing?
If I say 'a nightie' it's going to make me sound elderly but what I mean is they're like those long vest tops that go down to your mid thigh. I cannot sleep in full pjs because they always get twisted. Grrrr.
So that's all for this tag. I hope you've enjoyed reading it and you've learnt some odd things about me!
