Ten Things about Me

Ten Things about Me

Ten Things About Me

My gosh! Ten things about me may seem like an easy list but it’s not! When I’m busy spending my five million hours a week reading about other people lives, flicking through Instagram, Facebook or general web surfing, I become immersed down a rabbit hole of people and their lives.

I like it. I like that little window in others lives and I think that in this age of social media we tend to become more private yet selectively public. Its completely fascinating to me and I like to think that each of us is starring in our own little soap called ‘life’.

I wanted to start my blog with a little glimpse into me and who I am. It’s probably the cheesiest way but I thought that 10 facts about me would be a good taster and hopefully keep you reading and following me for more.

So here goes…

I am a Pisces

1. My birthday is in March. This makes me a Pisces. I am not a strong swimmer but I do like being in the water. I own a hot tub which is currently residing in my attic waiting for a peep of sunshine. Like I will have it out at the first ray of sun this year!!

 

Tattoos

2. I have four tattoos. The first one is on my lower back and was got in rebellion as a teenager. However, I didn’t know it was a “tramp stamp” but I do now! The other one is on my left wrist and is a vine with stars on it. I also have a rose on my shoulder that I got at Bike Week in Daytona, Florida in 2019 and a half sleeve. If you are in Northern Ireland I highly recommend Tasha (SpitnInk)

Hair

3. I am never satisfied with my hair and I get so bored with the colour. This usually leads to me making a dramatic change (sometimes it goes horribly wrong!) and regretting it almost instantly. I’ve been blonde however for the past few years so maybe I’ve settled. I actually studied hairdressing at college (SRC) and would highly recommend it even if you don’t intend to pursue a career in it.

Surrogate

4. No 4 in the list of Ten Things about Me is that I had a surrogate baby for a family member. I have a son and a daughter and had finished my family so I made the decision to have a baby for a family member. It was the most rewarding thing I have ever done and it makes me so proud every day to have been able to do it.

Fibromyalgia

5. I suffer from fibromyalgia after having an accident at work in 2012. It basically hits me like a tonne of bricks and I spend months picking myself up again but I always bounce back. It will not get the better of me and I refuse to stop being “Christine” and let the condition take me over.

Study

6. I am a mature student. Over the past few years, I have studied a wide variety of things. I started studying through the Open University for a degree in Environmental Studies which I had to abandon due to my health. I have also studied/am currently studying hairdressing, beauty therapy and dressmaking.

Favourite song

7. My favourite song is “rooms on fire” by Stevie Nicks. I love Fleetwood Mac and seen them in the 3arena in Dublin a couple of years ago. I am a big fan of the sixties and seventies music and much prefer it to any other kinds.

 

Biker

8. My first bike was a Kawasaki vn900 motorbike. When I became ill I decided that I needed to do things before they became impossible so I went and got my motorbike test. I’m not saying that I am “Hells Angels” material but I do enjoy a ride out and like to go to various events around the country when I feel able. I recently sold this bike and downgraded it to a 125 cc which is much easier to handle but I miss the power of the vn900 for sure!

 

 

Travel

9. I love to travel. I am always looking out for different places to go and things to do or see. Truly I love broadening my horizons and always think that the world really is my oyster. It was my dream to travel back to America and do a ride out around Las Vegas / Arizona for my fortieth birthday but with things the way they are I imagine it will be my 50th before I will be able to do that!

Bad Habits

10. Bad Habits. I have never bitten my nails. Previously, I used to smoke but I quit cold turkey about 10 years ago and have honestly never looked back. Admittedly I drink bourbon or gin (not together I may add haha) and could easily drink a bottle in one sitting. Not sure if I should be proud of that but I’m putting it under bad habits so there you go lol.

 

Anyway, that’s my ten things. I hope that you have a better insight into me now. I just admit that writing this has been quite an eyeopener as there were many many more things I would have written. Awk well I will just save them for another day ……
