It has been a fairly long time coming, but I have finally found the time to answer the ’25 questions tag’ after Kat so kindly tagged me a few weeks ago.
If you’ve ever wanted to know a bit more about me, prepare to be amazed.
From the best burgers to dream holidays, all shall be revealed!
1. What is your middle name?
Mae. Hence the blog name!
2. What was your favourite subject at school?
I always enjoyed making up stories in English, but I developed a massive love of Geography, which definitely helped to grow my love of travel.
Passion fruit martinis. Yum yum yum.
4. What is your favourite song at the moment?
5. What is your favourite food?
Burgers. Specifically the Smokey Robinson from Patty & Bun. Sheer burger perfection.
6. What is the last thing you bought?
A train ticket back to my childhood home, which is spookily similar to Kat’s answer!
7. Favourite book of all time?
This is toooo hard. My current favourite book is ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara. It’s the most emotional thing I’ve ever read. My favourite childhood book has to be Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I read that again and again, until I found out that a second book had been published. And so began the life-long obsession, culminating in seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child very recently.
8. Favourite Colour?
9. Do you have any pets?
Yes! She may live with my parents, but she’ll forever be my pooch. She’s a West Highland Terrier named Poppy and I love her to the moon and back, even though she’s rather badly behaved.
10. Favourite Perfume?
11. Favourite Holiday?
Anything Disney. My best holiday ever was probably when I was sixteen. I went to Harry Potter World for the first time, then went on a week-long Disney Cruise, and then stayed in a Disney hotel for the first time where we had the dining plan for five nights. Does life get better?!
12. Are you married?
13. Have you ever been out of the country?
Yes. And I try to get out as much as my graduate budget will allow!
14. Do you speak any other language?
Sadly not, though I wish I did.
15. How many siblings do you have?
I have one little sister, who is coming to Disney with me in October! You can find out more about my sister here.
17. Favourite restaurant?
Patty & Bun, as previously mentioned. It’s just too good.
18. When was the last time you cried?
One solitary little tear escaped when I was watching Jersey Boys recently. The end monologues are so good. I’ve been thinking of having a good old cry-fest at ‘Me Before You’ pretty soon.
19. Favourite Blog?
I’ll be diplomatic and go for ‘blogs’. Ladies, if you haven’t been tagged already, this is your cue to get answering.
20. Favourite Movie?
Got to be Mary Poppins, with a side of Peter Pan. I would like to be practically perfect in every way while never growing up.
21. Favourite TV show?
The only TV show that I keep up to date with is Game of Thrones, and I adore it.
22. PC or Mac?
PC. I do like Macs, but we don’t quite get along.
23. What phone do you have?
A gold iPhone 6s. The camera is so great.
24. How tall are you?
Somewhere around 5’8. I haven’t measured myself in a loooong time.
25. Can you cook?
In a word – no. I have a few specialities, but I never have the energy to cook after a long day at work.
And that’s it! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my answers and have learned a thing or two about me. Thanks again to Kat for nominating me.
Do any of your answers match mine, or are we different in every way? Let me know in the comments!
