Me, Me, Marvelous Me!

As well as trying to Blog, myself I read a lot of other people's blogs and I have noticed a lot of these posts, so I thought I would indulge you with these fascinating facts about me.

  1. As a child I was obsessed with Hollywood and wanted to be a 50's movie star.  There was a really old book in my house which was a movie star annual from the late 50's and I used to pour over it obsessively.
  2. I had skin cancer in my left eye (I know, I didn't know you could get in there either)
  3. Not satisfied with having Skin Cancer in my eye I had 2 separate tumors which apparently is unusual.  The eye Geeks at Bart's were very excited about this.
  4. I have a brown Staffrador (A Lab cross Staff) called Beyonce.
  5. I lived with over 200 people before I was 18.
  6. I once bought a wonderful Britvic Pineapple at a jumble sale for 5p when I was about 10 and used it as a teenager to make paper mache in ruining it forever!!!!
  7. I have 4 tattoos getting the first one at 30.
  8. My best friends tend to be Leo or Gemini although I do have a soft spot for Pisces.
  9. When I was 17 I spent a year in America doing the final year of High School.
  10. I used to believe that the Devil came up from the toilet when you flushed it (I was about 5)
  11. I am slightly obsessed with Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, I once saw him in the crowd at Latitude and tried to talk to him.  He looked at me like I was mad.
  12. I have not had my natural colour hair since I was about 11.
  13. I am obsessed with kitsch print dresses and own: a wizard of oz, star trek, Gnomes, Care Bears, fishing girls and cowgirl print dresses.
  14. I dream of owning a book shop and cafe.
  15. I get very angry if my sleep is disturbed by my Husband, who calls me the sleep dragon.
  16. My favourite kids show was Charlton and the Wheelies.

  21. If I could write like anyone else it would be Maggie O'Farrell.
  22. I love to travel and would love to go to Peru and Tokyo,
  23. I used to be scared to sleep in case I was a figment of someones imagination and was scared if I went to sleep they would stop imagining me.
  24. My favourite colour is Green.
  25. I am slightly obsessed with old Vegas, when I went for the first time I was devastated the Desert Inn was gone because I didn't know, as the guide books were still saying it was there.
  26. I once was a bar hostess in Greece.
  27. I fear I am a very bad driver as I probably have had over a hundred lessons and am still no where near test standard.
  28. I love teen movies especially 80's ones and spent most of my teenage years wanting to be Molly Ringwald.
  29. I am a massive hoarder and dream of being able to put things in the bin in a ruthless manner.
  30. The name for this blog came from my friend Jill from uni, who nicknamed me Twee and used to say when I came out with random things and jumped from subject to subject (as I do) "Ah, the randomness of Twee!"

Plus size Princess

I will let you into a little (well not so little secret)  I am a plus size princess.  What do I mean by this?  Well I am plus size, Overweight, Voluptuous, Curvy or just plain fat, whatever you want to call it and do you know what I don't have a problem with it.  The only part I hate is a double chin but that's life!

I decided a year or so ago that I would not wait to be thin to participate in life so since then I have tried Zumba, Burlesque and basically do anything that makes my heart sing a happy tune, cos life is way too short not to do what you want or to eat delicious food and I am not going to apologise for that, just to appease people with opinions or problems with my fleshiness!

So now my attitude is if I want to try coloured skinny jeans I will and I will probably rock them cos I am pretty awesome, and that life is too short to wait for something till I reach a desired number on the scale.  That is not to say that I intend to get bigger and bigger and indulge myself in an epic Romanesque orgy of eating, I am just going to enjoy life and exercising.

As for fashion I will not dress in a tunic so as not to offend people's eyes, I will enjoy fashion and clothes and if you don't like it, it is other people's problem not mine.
