There have been a few ‘10 facts about me’ recently soo I thought I’d do one for any new followers 😄
1 • I’m half Welsh and half French, although my French ‘half’ is actually (by blood) 3/4 Italian and 1/4 French 🤯 but I’ve always lived in England. If you’re already confused, I don’t blame you.
2 • Because of this, I’m technically ‘bilingual’ and can speak French BUT I’ve always had a huge lack of confidence with it so I hate speaking it. I haven’t spoken French properly for a while now, so I struggle to think of words and my accent is terrible, but I can understand others. If I overheard two French people having a conversation, I would understand it all.
3 • I have a huge family; 1 ‘full’ sister, 5 half-brothers and sisters on my Dad’s side and 5 step-brothers and sisters on my Mum’s side. Christmas is interesting 🤣
4 • I am very very introverted and not great at socialising. Even 30 minutes of socialising feels quite draining to me and I guess I find it difficult. My job (which I love) means I’m constantly socialising, so when I’m not working I tend to just want to be on my own to regain my energy 🙈
5 • Except for Morocco and Egypt, I’ve never been out of Europe. A few places on my bucket list are Thailand, The Seychelles, Cuba and New York (pretty generic but hey ho). However, I am terrified of flying and I think this has always put me off visiting long-haul destinations.
6 • I’ve never broken a bone (touch wood), but I did do my ACL whilst on a ski season 5 years ago. It was operated on 4 years ago and the recovery was one of the most challenging things I’ve been through.
7 • Before deciding to do ski seasons (I did 5 winters), I nearly went to Cardiff uni to study English Language and Marketing. Back then, I hated sports and didn’t do any exercise. Nearly 10 years later and I’ve kind of come full circle. I became a personal trainer and now do business management for my gym, a lot of which involves social media, language & marketing. It’s funny how things turn out.
8 • Most people are probably going to hate me for this but....I don’t like animals. Growing up, we didn’t have any pets and now I’m scared of most animals.
