It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, so thank you Fed’s Life for nominating me.
So here’s the questions:
1-Do you have a favourite movie?
Yes! I have loved Titanic and Ghost since I was young. Newer favourites are A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody.
2-What type of music do you enjoy listening to?
I have pretty eclectic tastes. I like pop, rock etc. At the moment I’ve been listening to random music such as David Gray, The Cranberries and the Eagles.
3-If you were stranded on an island with only one book to read, which one would it be?
This is tough. I love To Kill a Mockingbird as it’s a real classic, but I also love many modern thrillers. TKAM is a lasting book though, so I would pick it still.
4-If you could learn the answer to any mystery, what would it be?
I’d love to know who Jack the Ripper really was! Having grown up in East London, I’ve always had an interest in the Ripper and have done many tours. My grandad was convinced his elderly neighbour in Whitechapel was Jack the Ripper, so I’d love to clear this mystery up.
5-What restaurant (or home cooked meal) would you recommend to readers?
My favourite home cooked meals are a mushroom bolognese, Thai curry or chilli (all vegan). My favourite restaurants are casual places that just do good food. In London I love CookDaily, SpiceBox, The Diner, VBurger and Arancini Brothers. I’m also a big fan of The Railway Pub & Kitchen in the New Forest.
6-If someone visited the area you live in, what would be the number one attraction they should see before leaving?
Well I grew up in an area where the only attraction is the Ford Car Factory, but equal pay for women started there so it’s pretty cool for that reason! In East London, I’d recommend Shoreditch and Brick Lane for food, street art and quirky shops. Spitalfields Old Market has great stalls for shopping and Victoria Park is lovely too.
7-What do you most look forward to doing when you get home?
Having a bath! After being on my feet all day and travelling to and from work, I love a bubble bath.
8-Do you have any irrational fears?
Yes, a fear of falling! I’m not afraid of heights, but if I’m high up and it feels unstable I get panicky about falling from a height.
9-Have you ever had an experience at the cinema that was so memorable you still remember it fondly?
Yes but mostly at outdoor cinema events, where’s there’s more audience interaction. We watched Grease at an outdoor event and everyone was singing along and dancing. We also went to a sing-along version of The Greatest Showman with whistles, etc to use throughout the film which was fun.
10-What is your favourite time of the year?
11-Is there any jewellery or tattoo you have that has a special meaning to you?
All my tattoos were chosen because I liked the design more than any meaning. I have lockets my grandparents got me that mean a lot as they’ve passed away. I have pieces my partner got me that I cherish and I also wear a string bracelet that a monk tied on me during a Buddhist blessing.
