I saw a new tag circulating this week,’The British Tag’, and I couldn’t resist having a go myself. The blogger who once saw tags as pointless, it seems I’ve now converted, maybe even become obsessed. There’s something fun about taking part in them and I love reading other bloggers answers. I hope you enjoy mine…
How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars? On a working day I’ll have at least two, then maybe one or two more in the evening. The weekends depend – if I’m busy maybe just one in the morning, but if I’m having a lazy day or a day of writing, I couldn’t even tell you, it’s cuppa after cuppa after cuppa (milk with two sugars, just in case you ever invite me round)
What is your favourite part of your roast dinner? Stuffing! Definitely the stuffing, covered in gravy. At Christmas I love Sausage meat, it’s a tradition in our house.
What is your favourite dunking biscuit? I go through phases but at the moment I can’t stop dunking chocolate hobnobs. Mmmmm, oaty-chocolate goodness *wipes drool from corner of mouth*
What is your favourite quintessentially British pastime? That one is easy, Afternoon Tea with with Scones Jam and Cream. My favourite place to do this is Annie’s Tea Rooms in Liverpool, check out my quick vlog below.
What is your favourite word? Weirdly I say ‘So’ a lot at the moment, I’ll start a sentence ‘So I was…’ It’s actually really annoying. But in terms of my favourite British words or phrases it would be ‘Toodle Pips’. My Nan used to say it to me, it means ‘Goodbye’ or ‘Seeya’
Do you know any cockney rhyme slang? Apple and Pears = Stairs // Plates of meat = Feet // Eyelash = a slash (a wee)
What is your favourite sweet? I’m a chocoholic, but for sweets I’d pick Fruit Pastels. So chewy and yum.
What would your pub be called? I would call my pub ‘Oopsy Daisies’. It would be a proper old fashioned country pub, with a huge beer garden and it would be run by a woman called Daisy who I envision to be just like Bet Lynch. It would make the yummiest of British food, serve as many different ciders as possible, and host a Pimms Party every Sunday
Who is your no.1 British person? In terms of famous or celebrity? I’d go for Dame Julie Andrews; she is so elegantly British and delightful. William Shakespeare would come a close second. And in terms of people I know, I’d pick my Nan Evans, something about her screams: BRIT.
What is your favourite shop and restaurant? For British food you can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned pub that sells Fish and Chips and roast dinners, I don’t have a favourite, I love them all. I don’t really have a favourite shop, I love little kitsch shops that you find in small villages or by the seaside that sell cute kitchen pieces and pictures; I found one in North Wales that sales gorgeous kitchenware and the cutest bath bombs
What British song pops into your head? Supergrass – Alright. I feel it completely represented Brit Pop back when it was new and current. Great song.
Marmite? No, no, no, no, no, no, just no! Absolutely no. It’s so wrong. Eurgh. No!
I tag EVERYONE (whose British) who reads this to take part and pass on the Brit Tag :)
