Mummy Mimi | 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me


I was tagged by the lovely Denise from The Life of Dee to do a “20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me” post. You can check out Denise’s facts here.

Coming up with 20 facts, that may or may not be interesting, was harder than I thought and possibly I have already shared elsewhere. But anyway, here they are –

My 20 Facts:

  1. I’m rubbish at thinking of facts about myself!
  2. I have one sibling – a younger brother, although he used to get mistaken for being the older sibling as he’s always been taller than me.
  3. I had originally thought about studying Sports and Exercise Science at University, but then decided on Accountancy.
  4. I’ve worn glasses since I was 4 years old, occasionally wearing contact lenses.
  5. I’m not a fan of clothes shopping and would much rather shop online. I find it much easier to shop for gym clothes than if I need an outfit for a night out!
  6. Both me and S have the same star sign – Libra
  7. I love reading, although I don’t make as much time for it now. I could read for hours – once I’m hooked on a book I find it hard to stop!
  8. I used to do gymnastics when I was younger and gave up at the age of 14. I was never really any good and when you can’t see because you need to take your glasses off it makes it just that little bit harder!
  9. I have had an iPhone since the 3G version came out, which I queued for but didn’t get as they had sold out of the 16gb version after 3 customers so later ordered online (I may have also queued for a later version too!)
  10. I have been a season ticket holder at Aberdeen Football Club since the 1998/99 season meaning the 2017/18 season will be my 20th as a season ticket holder.
  11. My first car was a blue Polo called Polly, she was 10 years old when I got her and was then traded in as part of the scrappage scheme three years later – to be replaced by another blue car!
  12. Outwith the UK I have only been to Spain (& Spanish Islands) and Andorra – a sign I need to travel more!
  13. I have always loved taking part in sports and exercise but have recently discovered my love for weight training in the gym. I really wish I had got involved in sports when I was at University.
  14. I have never broken a bone – although I have chipped the corner of my chin (bike accident) and was very accident prone as a child!
  15. I lived on my own for 3 years after I moved out of my parents’ house and before A moved in with me.
  16. I love coffee – although it is something I have grown to love since my uni days and the need for a caffeine boost. I started off drinking white mochas with about 3 sugars – how I have any teeth left is beyond me!
  17. The Sims – My childhood addiction, I love this game and could lose days playing it – I still have a disk around somewhere but I don’t think my ageing MacBook with lack of memory would be up to running it (not that I have the time these days!)
  18. I passed my driving test first time, about a week after my 18th birthday and hadn’t told anyone when it was.
  19. I love taking photos of S and looking back on older photos (Timehop & Amazon Photos ‘On this Day’ are great for looking back)
  20. I currently have 25,366 photos on my iPhone (built up over around 9 years) – significantly more taken in the previous 3 years than before.
