🌸What is your favourite memory from childhood?🌸

This question is so easy and straightforward to answer, I have many memories that I will never forget, but the one that sticks out for me is:
My nan passed away when I was younger; it was such a shock. She passed away from a horrendous Cancer; she was everything I could ask for as a nan. She was someone I could rely on who would give me advice when I was struggling, teach me things my mum didn’t know about. 
If you still have your grand parent’s alive treasure all the time you have with them because I promise you now, you will regret it if you don’t. 
So anyway getting to the main point of this question, sitting on the beach and camber sands eating freshly made hot crossed buns baked freshly by my nan. With delicious clotted cream and jam, with a freshly made tea in a flask. Now isn’t that just a magical memory, I know it’s ridiculous but every birthday, every shooting star my wish has always been to see my Nan again. Only if wishes came true.

🌸Reading a book or watching TV?🌸

I love this question so much,
when I was growing up as a young girl, and through my teenage years  I would love watching TV as there were so many impressive programs to watch “saved by the bell, recess, Kenan and Kel, Tracy Beaker, That’s so Raven, Powerpuff Girls.” The list can go on and on, but I don’t want to bore you! But as I am growing up (which I am terrified of) I am becoming a real lover of reading a good book. Don’t get me wrong I am not the best reader ever due to my dyslexia and my ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) but I am getting there, picture having the words all muddled up on a page and then not being able to take information in because you get extremely distracted and have a small attention span! So it feels like I am running a marathon in my poor brain. 
 My type of books: Autobiography, romance, thriller, history, chick book are all my favourite.

🌸If someone offered you a free supply of your favourite food, what would you pick?🌸

Straightforward and easy question, you would never guess.
Pizza! It has to be but not any pizza; it either has to be from Dominos or Pizza Hut. 
I don’t know how they do it, but they taste unreal! I still believe that it has drugs in the sauce or something because once you eat one, you just can’t stop (Pringles come to mind). 
There is not a better evening than sitting watching films with my other half and eating pizza. Maybe we need to get out but who cares it’s what we love, so I don’t care what people say. 
So this means I would be able to get an unlimited pizza hut or dominos card, only if this became true, how emotional! I can be such a Tom Boy sometimes, bloody pizza out of all the food in the world what a nutter I am.
🌸If you were only allowed to drink, one drink, for the rest of your life, what would it be?🌸

Drink for the rest of my life, well what a pickle of a question. Depending if it’s acholic Prosecco all the way, but who wouldn’t love a good glass of that smashing stuff after a stressful day at work.
If it wasn’t acholic It would have to be a cup of tea. 
What is better than a lush cup of tea, sitting in the garden inhaling the fresh air around me. PG tips you can never go wrong, having said that I have just ordered myself some fresh strawberry tea leaves. I thought why not. 
Cuppa bloody tea peeeerrrrrrfect.

🌸What is your ideal first date?🌸

Well being with my partner for three years, my first date with him was perfect. 
I never used to like eating, so that was off the cards, it’s too intense. I am not that type of girl. 
Growing up with cars I have always been fascinated with them, me and Rhys had been speaking for ages and we planned on meeting up when his R32 GTI Skyline was imported from Japan. I couldn’t wait to see it. He pulled up with a bunch of flowers drinks ready for our drive to our gorgeous viewpoint; we were there for six hours talking to each other about everything. We did this near enough every day, and I fell in love with him not just because of the love I had for him, I trust him with my whole life. He is my bestfriend my soul mate, and I can’t wait to be Mrs Botterill. 
Love him dearly! 
 🌸What is your favourite thing to do on the weekends?🌸
My favourite thing to do on the weekend is, waking up with my man beside me. Going to the beach with family and friends and the pups. When I am at the beach I feel so free my mind can unwind, everything that bothered me in a negative way goes like a weight has lifted off of my shoulders. Sand in between my toes curling them up and digging my feet further in. The cold sea was chasing up the beach then you see me running away from the waves like a mad woman. 
When I am at the beach taking photographs of my surroundings, it is so satisfying to capture everything in the moment. What perfect memory, everyone likes looking back at moments in their life. 
Down here in Devon there are cafes everywhere you go, but it’s not just any cafe fur fluffy blankets and drinking a lovely hot cuppa, wrapping your hands around the cup and feeling the tea warm your whole body. From your fingertips to your toes, ah gives me goosebumps thinking about it.
🌸What is your favourite thing to do to unwind?🌸
Well having Bipolar I have to try and distract my mind when I am not in the best place. 
All I have to do is plug my headphones in. Put my favourite music on then of I go, I normally doing a variety of things to make me feel human again. The list of creations;
-Completing my diary
-Writing all the hate and emotions down then tear up the paper.
-Going for a run.
-Art and Crafts
The list is endless; I love to unwind like every other person does, while I have been doing the above I will always have a cup of tea which is perfection. 


🌸Going out for dinner or take out? 🌸

Such a simple answer take out don’t get me wrong, but I love going out for a meal with friends, family and my loved one. There is nothing better than chilling at home catching up with tv programmes that I have missed, having a glass of wine with a Chinese or Indian takeaway. Yummmm it’s making me hungry even writing abo0ut food. Haha!


🌸What is the one place you’ve always wanted to go and why?🌸

Well, I’m not one for travelling due to my partner’s condition, but if we could go somewhere, I would revisit America I went there in my teens, and apparently, a lot has changed, I also would love to go to California to see one of my penpal friends and her daughter. She is so lovely in every single way, but going off topic, I think Rhy would love it!

🌸If you could have one power, what would it be?🌸

That is a pickle of a question, hmmm I think the power that I would love to have is reading people mind. I would like to know what people are thinking, yes there is many downfalls with it, and all hell would break loose. I believe that it would be pretty awesome power to have and would resolve so many arguments. My experience with debates anyway, bottom line people hate arguing with friends family and partners.

🌸What do you feel is a really important life skill to have?🌸

I think the most important life skill to have is to be caring towards everyone. My previous job of being a carer, you can’t get a better feeling than support people who need help. The friendships I have made along the way they are so special to me. Assisting the elderly was such a powerful, important job to me. 
I believe if everyone in the world was caring and supportive things would be a lot less complicated. I don’t think I need to write anything as that pretty much sums up the question.
