Fill In The Blanks Friday

I love reading other people's Fill In The Blanks, hosted every week by Lauren. This week I've decided to try it out for myself! You can join in here!

1. The strangest thing I've ever eaten was probably pheasant, which incidentally is the last meat I ever ate. It was shot by a friend of my Dad's, so I was ok about eating it because it was flying free before its demise, rather than being cooped up in a pen!

2. My best friend is my Mum. When I was young she always told me that she was my best friend, and I never really listened. As with many things, she was right! She's the only person who makes sense of my down days, and she's the only person who will tell me I'm being ridiculous when I really need to hear it.

3. If I could live in a different era it would be the 1960's because I want to take part in the feminist revolution! I'd hopefully still be around 25 years later to see Nirvana play, too!

4. I like breakfast cereal a lot more than I should! .

5. If you only know one thing about me it should be that I am very particular about hand hygiene - if I see you touch it, I'm not going to eat it!

6. My favorite book of all time is Atonement by Ian McEwan. I don't know if it's really my favourite favourite, but it's the book that made me look harder at what I read; it changed my tastes and has influenced many of my book choices since then. I'm scared to read it again; I first read it when I was only 16, and I'd hate my impression of it to change.

7. The one beauty product I couldn't live without is hand cream. It's the only product I use, but I need it. My hands are horrible!

(I haven't answered the extra 3 questions as I haven't time to think properly - but I like the first 7!)


  1. i love these fill in the blank fridays! i really need to do it one time!
    i can't believe you ate pheasant!!! that is crazy!
    BREAKFAST CEREAL IS THE BEST! i could eat it all day everyday!!

  2. #1- related, i remember the last meat i ever ate.. it was lamb and it just really disgusted me to think i was eating a lamb. lol

    atonement- i haven't read it which i must, i LOVED the film.

    mom's as best friends- yes! i feel so sad for those who aren't close to their Mom's because i believe it will be something that will break your heart later in life.

    loved reading your 7 :)

    happy weekend! xoxo

  3. i really really love breakfast cereal. i eat it for dinner way too often.

    thanks for playing along and i hope you have a lovely weekend!


  4. I enjoyed reading this - and I know what you mean about hand cream, I can't even go on holiday for a couple of days without it.

  5. Is Atonement an easy read?

    I'm struggling to read much these days - and if I pick a book up and it dosen't grab me within the first few pages then I tend to look elsewhere.

    I read beore I could go to school - and essentially I didn't stop reading until the age of 18! Sadly I stopped at uni - too much partying I guess - but also HAVING to read books (not for enjoyment) turned me off the idea sadly, and it's never fully returned.

  6. Well I recommend Atonement for getting back in to literature again; it's not an easy read but it is easy *to* read, if you get me - it's quite sumptuous but there's a lot behind it. The best sort of book, in my opinion!

    There are so many amazing books out there, but so much rubbish too - it's worth sticking at it and trying to find something that really captures you :-)
