I know I have an about page and you can find out a little bit of information about me there and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll find out plenty but I just wanted to share some things that people probably (or possibly) don’t know about me here….
1. I only learned how to swim in 2011.
I went to plenty of swimming lessons as a kid and was just so terrified of the water that I never seemed to get the hang of it. I went on a holiday to Cuba in 2011 and I learned the breast stroke. It’s still the only style of swimming I can do and I try to go swimming 3 mornings a week. (Operative word being ‘try’).
2. I’m left handed.
Yep! Part of the 10%. We even get our own day for goodness sake. Funny story, when I started school, I had such a problem with writing properly. My teacher had to put a little star at the top left of my page because I was in a bad habit of writing right to left instead of left to right.
3. My middle name is Ann.
After my mother and her mother before her. I took the name Margaret for my confirmation which was my Dad’s mother’s name.
4. I’m obsessed with protecting my skin from the sun.
I rarely ever wear less than SPF 30. I almost always wear SPF 50 on my face when I go abroad and for the last year I’ve worn SPF 30 on my face pretty much every day. I also have a slight obsession with skincare products in general & own waaaay too many!
5. I can watch One Tree Hill over and over.
It’s my go to TV show when I want to binge watch something familiar or if I’m unwell. I would probably pee my pants if it made a comeback.
6. I’m messy, yet organised.
I am soooo messy! My bedroom is NEVER totally tidy and I almost always have a chair-drobe or a floor-drobe BUT I have black & white storage boxes lining all my shelves with everything organised in them. I need to know everything has a home.
7. I am awful at maths.
I mean seriously, hideously awful. I failed it in my Leaving Cert and with absolutely no effort put into getting better at it in the last 10 years, I now can’t do anything but add without a calculator.
8. I also have a really bad sense of direction.
It’s an on-going joke in my family that I have to reset and go home if I want to find my way somewhere. I have to plan routes out in my head before I leave home. Google Maps saves my life regularly.
9. My dream job is to be a party planner/event organiser.
Even though I get extreme anxiety about actually attending parties. Then I tend to almost always enjoy myself thoroughly. I love the idea of organising them and not having to worry about attending them.
10. I have one tattoo on the top of my back.
I got it 5 years ago in Thailand and it says ‘Ancora Imparo’, which means ‘I Am Still Learning’ in Latin. Michelangelo said it just before he died when he was 88 years old.
