Blogging Challenge Day 1

Blogging Challenge Day 1

Hello and welcome to the first day of my 30 day blogging challenge. In case you missed my previous post, I have decided to do a 30 day blogging challenge. This is my attempt at getting back into blogging and writing. I actually have a lot of ideas for posts but I can’t seem to find the words so I’m hoping this will help get my creativity going again.

1 – A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself.

That’s me – Ky, 33 years old. I recently (February) had a hair cut, and got my fringe cut back in. After growing out various asymmetrical hair styles and side fringes I’ve gone for a pretty standard mum hair cut – bob with fringe. I have no idea what the face is all about. I am not one for taking selfies so always pull silly faces when I do.

  1. My hair has been pretty much every colour – pink, purple, blue, red, green, yellow, orange and many in between colours.
  2. I am a huge fan of music, especially rock/metal. My first one was Reading Festival 2001, and I’ve tried to go to as many as possible since. I’ve even gone on a 16 hour coach journey with 10 friends to a festival in Europe just because of one band that was playing.
  3. When I was younger I used to be quite sporty. I was one of only 2 girls to take football in our games lessons and I even playing netball for my school.
  4. I was once a majorette – yep I did baton twirling, pompom shaking, dancing and marching.
  5. Before becoming a mum I played roller derby but due to injury and then getting pregnant I gave up. I still have my skates, helmet and pads so maybe this summer it will be time to get back on them.
  6. I’m terrible with heights. I don’t like going on ferris wheels, high ladders. Once at a water park on holiday I got too freaked out half way up that I had to turn around and go back down. Although strangely I enjoyed going on the Eiffel Tower and The Sky Garden in London.
  7. Before I became a mum I had no interest in children or even becoming a parent. I had never held a baby or shown any interest in one.
  8. Stationery is a big obsession of mine. My biggest problem is notebooks. I keep buying them because they are pretty and never use them.
  9. When I was in college I studied travel and tourism because I had no idea what I actually wanted to do or be. If I am completely honest I still don’t know. I’ve worked in retail/customer service since I was 16 so when I do return to work I would love to change my path.
  10. I make a mean milkshake. I used to work in an american, fifties inspired milkshake shop in Guildford and it was great. Our special was called an american bad boy and it was so good.
  11. When I was younger I played Mary in our primary school nativity. Considering I now hate talking in front of large groups of people I find the idea of doing this now absolutely terrifying. I guess as a kid I had more confidence.
  12. Greece is my favourite place to go on holiday. I’m pretty sure I was greek in a former life. I could eat greek food all day long.
  13. I love to cook and bake. Since becoming a stay at home mum I think my cooking skills have improved.
  14. One of my main goals for this year is to improve my photography. Although we own a fancy pants camera, I love taking photos on my film cameras. I currently have film in 3 cameras, all unfinished so over the next few weeks I will try to get them finished and developed.
  15. I hate writing facts about myself as I don’t think I am very interesting.

Well I managed it- just so thank you for reading. Hopefully over the next 30 days I will improve and get back on the blogging train.
