A bit about me...
The lovely Cilla from Paved with Books tagged me for this one - I keep meaning to do a tag of some sort so thank you!! I'm not a particularly interesting person, but if anyone wants to learn a bit more about me, here's your chance. And if you want to try this tag too, I hereby invite you :D
Name: Catherine Elizabeth
Nickname: Sometimes Cath or Cathy, and Little Cath to the extended family, since my Mum's Catherine too. Although she's littler than me nowadays.
Hair colour: Brown
Hair length: Waist length.
Eye colour: I'd say green, but other people would probably say hazel or brown.
Best feature: I like my hair, but I should make more of an effort with it.
Braces: The dentist insisted I was fine until I turned eighteen, then he agreed that my teeth were crooked. It felt too late by then.
Piercings: Just my ears.
Right or left handed: Right.
Best friend: My best friend all through primary school was called Holly. She's a mum now, which makes me feel so old!
Award: Probably something school related.
Sport: I've got no hand-eye co-ordination at all, but I did do Judo when I was eleven or twelve.
Real vacation/holiday: We visited family in Northern Ireland every year when I was little, but my first time abroad was Disneyland Paris. It was my last summer holidays before starting high school, and we went on the Euro-star, straight into the Disneyland station.
Concert: Taylor Swift. It was the very last night of her 'Red' tour, in London. My cousin won free tickets on the radio!
Film: Depends on my mood. But my go-to feel-good film is The Adventures of Robin Hood. Also Bride and Prejudice. And I recently discovered The Commitments, which I love.
TV Show: Right now, Game of Thrones. Also Nashville, although we're still waiting for season 4 over here. BBC Merlin was a favourite back in the day - but the ending ruined everything.
Song: I don't have a favourite - but I have been listening to The Commitments soundtrack a lot :)
Restaurant: Casa Italia, a little Italian place in Liverpool.
Shop: Waterstones and any 'bits and pieces' sort of shops, like Paperchase or Utility. New Look for clothes!
Book: Probably still The Harry Potters, as well as Gone with the Wind and a little-known historical romance called My Lady of Cleeves.
Shoes: A pair of knee high boots I bought in the Monsoon sale - although, haven't had much of a chance to wear them yet, with it being summer...
'Treat her right' 'The Commitments'
(scene not in the film, Jimmy singing lead!)
Single or Taken: Single.
Eating: Biscuits with tea.
Thinking: That I still haven't bought my dad a Father's day present. Better get on that tomorrow.
Watching: Just watched three episodes of a new BBC thing on iplayer called The Living and the Dead. It's like a creepy Larkrise to Candleford starring Colin Morgan.
Wearing: White peasant-y shirt and black dungarees. Very Mamma Mia.
(The Living and the Dead trailer)
Marriage: If the right person shows up.
Career: Writing's the dream, but I'd take anything I'm good at and halfway enjoy.
Where you want to live: I don't think I'd want to leave the UK for good - but wouldn't say no to a year or two somewhere different.
Do you believe in...
God: Sometimes. I sit on the fence a lot.
Miracles: Depends what you categorise as a miracle. Again, not sure.
Soulmates: Yeah - but I don't think there's just one out there for everybody. Or that you need to find your soulmate to be happy.
Heaven/Hell: I hope there's something after we die. I don't think I believe in Hell though.
Kissing on a first date: Yeah, why not.
Yourself: Now and again.
