31 Day Blog Challenge (Day 2)

20 Facts about me …..

  1. I read (I read a lot)
  2. I have a room dedicated to my books (it’s jokingly called the “library”)
  1. I have 6 tattoos (and plan to have a few more)
  2. I listen to music a lot more, my taste is more varied that it was 10 years ago. I also listen to music that matches my mood, or if I’m feeling a little down, I’ll put on some fast music and have a dance. Music to housework is a favourite of mine. Not yet been caught like Mrs Doubtfire dancing with the vacuum.
  1. I love roses. I prefer to see them in the garden, but I like a nice bunch once in a while for the home.
    I did try to learn to drive when I was younger, it was the whole learning to do things all at the same time, and I wasn’t a confident teenager. So sadly I’m a walker not a driver.
    I love the cinema, that whole experience, I usually buy sweets and a drink from a shop (the cinema is just so expensive!!) but what I don’t like is the talker ….. behind me or by the side of me, it’s not cheap to watch a film, so I like to watch it in silence.
    I have never ridden a bicycle. We weren’t fortunate enough as kids to have bikes, so I never got round it learning. And to be honest the thought of riding on the roads with so many thoughtless drivers is enough to make me stay a pedestrian.
    I’m a bigger walker than I was. I’m not a big lover of public transport, I’d rather spend my money on a book or a bar or chocolate. I can usually do over 10,000 steps a day, and in fact my phone has an app which tracks my steps.
    I Love chocolate….. white, milk or my favourite is dark chocolate.
    I’m a coffee drinker. I don’t drink tea, I haven’t done since I was pregnant with my son (and he’s 31) the smell use to make me feel ill, but at least I can make a cup without holding my nose.
    I blog daily 😉 and I also leave reviews on BookBub. Amazon Uk. Good Reads. NetGalley. I also guest review on a blog site called The Reading Cafe.
    I like to cook, I’m not an adventurous cook, but I like to throw things together and come up with different recipes. My favourite is a cupboard rice recipe. I find different ingredients and add to rice.
    I love butterflies. They use to be one of the things my daughter collected. Ornaments and anything with a butterfly on it, and after she passed away, I continued her collection.
    I’m a big fan of penguins. I’ve liked them since I was a child, I’d watch all the nature documentaries. On my next holiday, I plan to see some in the wild. And I can’t wait.
    I can’t swim. I never learnt as a child, I’m not scared of the water, but if I’m in a pool, I like to be able to touch the bottom of the pool. And if it’s the beach, then I don’t wade out further than my knees.
    I have a kindle, a kindle app on my phone, I also have a kindle fire, and iBooks on my phone, along with paper books. And Audible in my phone. As I said before I love to read, and if I can take a book out with me, then I will 😉
    I craft, I have plenty of ideas, I have plenty of items to craft. It all sits in my library. I’ve made a few things, and I do intend to go back and do a few more. (Watch this space)
    I wear glasses, I have gone since I was 12, I didn’t always wear them. As a child, I used them for looking at the blackboard (shows how old I am😉) and when the children came along I just started to wear them all the time. In the morning I usually wander round the house without them on. I can’t do it for long as it gives me a headache.
    I’m not a big alcohol drinker, I do like a glass of southern comfort with lemonade. A nice cider is always welcome. If I drink wine it’s with lemonade. I can’t taste all those flavours that some people say they can taste!!!

    Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
