I’m an avid blog reader, I guess as a blogger myself, I have to be. One of the things I most enjoy when reading a post on another blog, is when I can hear the writers personality in the text. When you’re reading and it’s like you’ve known this person you’re whole life. You can practically hear them reading the post out loud. So, I love reading tag posts like these, because you get to understand the blogger on another level.
So here’s an interesting one… get to me: the British tag.
How many cups of tea and how many sugars?
I’m quite possibly the most un-British person ever, I don’t like tea. Or coffee, Scones, or cream. I do like Jam though.
What’s you favourite part of your roast?
To make things even worse, I only just recently began to enjoy roast dinners. Growing up they were the worst thing that could be served at the dinner table, in my opinion. I still don’t really love it to be honest, but my favourite part is the Yorkshire pudding’s. Swimming in gravy, yum!
What’s your favourite dunking biscuit?
Ginger Snaps. Or Chocolate Digestive. Fun fact, even though I don’t like or drink tea, I love dunking biscuits in it. On a cold day, I often make a cup of tea just to dunk some biscuits.
Favourite quintessentially British past time?
Does eating fish and chips from paper bags down by the seaside count? I’ve only ever done that in single digits but it’s still one of my favourite things!
Not to sure about this one, at work I always say ‘pop’, like “I’m just going to pop to the corner shop.” I like the word ‘chockablock’ too, for example “the traffic was chockablock.”
Favourite cockney rhyming slang?
‘Cream Crackers’ – “Ah jeez, I’m cream crackers” – I’m knackered.
I love Pencils, you know those fruit flavoured liquorice things you get with the cream in the middle. Ooh I love Bassets Allsorts too. And Jelly Babies.
What would your pub be called?
The Crown. Or The Princess & the Pug. I like fairytales.
No.1 British person?
Daniel Craig. Well really, just James Bond.
In terms of British food at a restaurant, it has to be a Beefeater or a good pub. You can’t get better English food than at a pub. Favourite shops are those old fashioned styles sweet shops where you get the sweets in jars.
Which British song pops into you head?
‘Our House’ – Madness
‘Up on the Roof’ – Robson & Jerome. Such Oldies. They remind me of being a little girl.
No. Never. One time, when I was little my dad gave me a slice of toast and told me it was just burnt. When I realised it was actually marmite I didn’t talk to him for a week.
Favourite British TV show?
Mine would be without a doubt Dr. Who. But Top Gear comes in as close second. Ooh and Only Fools and Horse. Oh and Vicar of Dibley.
Hope you loved this weeks bonus post, definitely a little bit different.
