10 Things you probably didn't know about me...

Was just thinking about some new blog ideas and I wanted to put aside the business talk for a moment and share a few things about me that you probably don’t know.
Let me know one thing about you that we don't know in the comments...

1.       As a 5 year old I was obsessed with Spiderman
I wore my Spidey costume everywhere…playing in the garden, to bed, under my uniform to school, absolutely everywhere. Watched the TV show every day…funnily enough he was a photographer in his down time…

2.       Yet I would be the worst Spiderman ever….
As I am terrified of heights. Just cannot stand being near the edge of a high spot! Also hate driving anywhere when any hedge or fence ends and a huge drop is there for all to see…so disorientating.

3.       I have an unhealthy obsession with milkshakes!
Will try pretty much any flavour and just cannot get enough of them… I bought a smoothie maker but it just keeps getting used for new Ice Cream shakes from heaven…

4.       Apart from Chocolate….
While I love chocolate bars, I just detest chocolate cake, milkshake, ice cream. Yes it’s weird but what can you do.


5.       80s music is my absolute favourite
Particularly “Live it Up” by Mental as Anything and the Human Leagues “Don’t you want me” Now where was that 80s disco again?

6.       I am trying to get my favourite ever chocolate bar brought back
Can you help? Pop across, like & share my page it will make my day…honestly.
Bring Back Fry's Five Centres

7.       My absolute favourite meal is…
Roast Beef (medium rare) with Roast potatoes, onion gravy, peas & Yorkshire Puddings…so, so many Yorkies….my current record stands at 14 with my roast dinner

8.       The worst year of my life was when I was 8...
Meningitis and a horrific lumbar puncture which has given me a total phobia of needles and then I also badly burned my stomach by tipping a hot teapot on top of me…

9.       Never had a day off sick from work or school sick since the meningitis incident…
Not one. For anything whether at school, college, work. Perhaps that lumbar puncture gave me some super powers…but why, oh why couldn’t it have been web slinging and a love of heights!  :-)

10.   I only started photography in 2012…
with a small £60 compact camera to capture some nature photos at Brandon Marsh…and as I enjoyed it more and upgraded my kit… the seed was sown and I kept driving forward with how I could turn my passion into my job.
