So today’s post is going to be just a bit of fun. I found this tag on the blog elfypie and I literally had to do it! I am pretty proud to be British and I love British things. Also, this tag made me giggle. Hope you enjoy it too!
1. How many cups of tea do you have per day? (and how many sugars?)
It depends who I’m with. Now I live with my family, maybe 3 tops. When I’m living with my boyfriend – and I’m not exaggerating – it’s more around the 10 cups mark. If I love tea, then he’s about ready to dump me and elope with a cup of tea. As far as sugars go, its strictly 1 and a half sugars to a three-quarters full mug of tea. Making a cup of tea is an art form!
2. What is your favourite part of a roast dinner?
You’re making me choose?!
It also depends if you’re going all out with this roast dinner! I love roast chicken, but also pigs in blankets (different in the UK to the US – ours is mini sausages wrapped in bacon) and Yorkshire puddings, and you can’t forget mint sauce or gravy. Ohhhh this is making me hungry…
3. What is your favourite dunking biscuit?
I’m a Bourbon Cream kind of girl. My boyfriend however is all for a Custard Cream…
4. What is your favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Going to the sea-side. We always used to go to the East Coast, usually to Norfolk, and have cockles on the beach. Yum yum! But when you live in Leicestershire it’s a bloody trek to any coastline!
5. What is your favourite word?
Bloody. or bollocks. Generally British ‘swear words’ it seems! Cheeky!
But also ‘mardy’. That one is more regional than British. It just means ‘moody’ or ‘grumpy’.
6. What is your favourite Cockney rhyme slang?
Now, my boyfriend is a Londoner, so I always laugh at him saying things like ‘a score’ for £20 (did I get that one right?!) but my dad (whose mum was a Londoner) still always says ‘your boat’. As in boat race face. Or something like that.
7. What is your favourite sweet?
Sherbet Lemons! There is no other!
8. What would your pub be called?
The Red Lion of course! (Peter Kay anyone?)
9. Who is your number 1 British person?
Too many too choose. I think Peter Kay though. His comedy basically sums up British (maybe more Northern) life to a ‘T’
10. What is your favourite shop/restaurant?
I don’t know… There’s an all you can eat chinese in Leicester called Terracota, and oh wow so much food for your money. Oh and Harvester! I’m not a classy bird, you don’t need to impress me with fancy restaurants. Just take me Harvester! Free salad bar, and the piri piri fajita chicken combo please.
11. What British song pops into your head?
For some reason, It’s All About You – McFLY. I used to love McFLY.
All day long, yes!!! I love you, Marmite, I do.
Oooh I feel all patriotic. I loved this. Please do this tag if you are British. Or I guess if you’re not? I don’t know! I would so love to see tags like this from other cultures, I hope they exist or that someone could create one!
So, I’ll have another post on Thursday, which will be talking about budget skin care favourites!
