A to Z

A is for age: Twenty one years of age.

B is for breakfast today: My dad made pancakes and bacon, which is becoming something of a Blackburn specialty. I still struggle with the sweet/savoury combination so I eat two pancakes with melted butter and bacon, and then one with maple syrup, like a dessert.

C is for currently craving: I’m so full right now that I am craving nothing. Lately, though, I’ve been craving fizzy drinks (any kind, but specifically diet coke) and avocado.

D is for dinner tonight: I have no idea. Who knows what the day will bring? As I still feel pretty rotten I will probably try to fill my face full of vegetables.

E is for favorite type of exercise: Now that’s something I’m trying to figure out. Anything that’s fun, doesn’t take forever and leaves me feeling like I’ve worked hard but doesn’t reduce me to a panting heap of human that can’t even stand up.

F is for an irrational fear: When I walk or drive over bridges I worry that they’ll crumble and collapse. This is because I have a recurring anxiety dream in which that happens.

G is for gross food: My taste buds seem to be in limbo at the moment. I think they’re transitioning. My go-to answer for this question used to be ‘dried fruit’ but I’ve actually been willingly snacking on dried cranberries lately. One thing that will always be gross is soggy bread – a bit of bread accidentally made its way into the sink the other day and when I had to fish it out I could have honestly cried.

H is for hometown: Cheese land!

I is for something important: Being able to write for myself. Lately I haven’t been allowing myself very much time to write personal things and it’s quite stressful.

J is for current favourite jam:  Can I pick two songs? Tonight Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae & Drive By by Train.

K is for kids: Not tonight, darling.

L is for current location: Sat on my bed, laptop on my knee, blogging while watching Desperate Housewives. #thisisthelife

M is for the most recent way you spent money: I gave my mother £20 because I owe her money, if that counts. If not, then I bought Thai food on Saturday night.

N is for something you need: CARDIGANS. I never knew cardigans could be of such importance in my life but I currently have none that I want to wear and it’s causing me a great deal of trouble in my life.

O is for occupation: Depends on who’s asking ;) I am a waitress/freelance writer/communications assistant/social media consultant/writer.

P is for pet peeve: Lately, it’s drivers who don’t wave when you let them past. JUST RAISE YOUR HAND, IT’S NOT THAT HARD.

Q is for a quote: I can never think of a good quote off the top of my head, so I did a quick search on Twitter and this was the best one I found: ‘Never eat what you can’t lift’ – Miss Piggy

R is for random fact about you: I had such a hard time thinking of 11 facts about myself for this post that I can not think of any now. Go back and read that if you are desperate to know things.

S is for favourite healthy snack: Lately, almonds and dried cranberries.

T is for favourite treat: A flavoured coffee and some kind of cake from a coffee shop.

U is for something that makes you unique: I don’t know. You tell me?

V is for favourite vegetable: I’m all about courgettes.

W is for today’s workout: I’m going charity shop shopping. I think that counts as exercise.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: None other than dental x-rays, but I have had an ultrasound. And no, I was not pregnant.

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Yesterday was a pretty dull day.

Z is for your time zone: GMT. Brap brap.

  1. I have been craving avocados lately too! They’re so delicious. My irrational fear is the same. I don’t have it when I walk over bridges, but I’m convinced they’ll callapse when I drive over them. And I would’ve cried if I had to fish soggy bread out of the sink. That’s nasty. And I love that you consider charity shopping, exercise. That’s fantastic.

    • Mmm… I think everyone lives in a perpetual state of craving avocados haha. It’s so nerve-racking – maybe we just don’t actually believe the bridge can hold the weight of a car? Fishing the soggy bread out of the sink was one of the least enjoyable experiences I’ve had lately – and this coming from someone who is generally not squeamish about gross food after years of working in the food service industry. Charity shopping is great exercise! Rifling through endless racks of awful clothes to find some that aren’t awful – or, in my case, are awful but amazing at the same time – is a good arm workout ;)

  2. OMG, I too fear driving over bridges! Not sure why I have this particular irrational fear, but have always felt this way–even before I could drive on my own. Maybe a movie scarred me for life?? Also, I completely agree with your pet peeve of drivers not waving a “thanks” when you let them by–so rude.

    • How strange – maybe you’re right that something like that has happened in a film you’ve seen. Or maybe humans just subconsciously don’t trust bridges to be able to stay up. Urgh, it’s so annoying. Even more so when they look you straight in the eye and yet don’t even nod, wave, smile, flash their lights, honk, ANYTHING to show that they have acknowledged you have let them through and appreciate it.

    • El oh el! I also use lol as a verb sometimes, so I won’t sentence you to death over it. I also sometimes say lol out loud – I mean it in an ‘ironic’ way but people obviously just think I’m a total douche.

  3. I’m with Danielle, that line was just brilliant :-)

    I always crave avocado, I need to find some new ways to eat it. Being able to write for yourself is hugely important, I’ve been writing more lately and loving it. Your occupation sounds fantastic, that’s how I want to end up one day. Especially the last one!

    We basically have the same favourite treat, we should definitely go for flavoured coffee and cake sometime! I’m also with you on the courgettes :-)

    • Haha thanks love :)

      I could probably eat avocado with every meal if I was able to afford it. I don’t tend to eat it in any exciting ways unfortunately – just in sandwiches, on toast, with eggs etc. If you find any fancy new avocado recipes let me know.

      It is the best treat!

    • J is for Just found it on a random blog – should probably have credited for it but I didn’t because I’m lazy/a rebel.

      D is for DO IT!
