Knowing Me, Knowing you meme

I was tagged by the lovely Shay of Shay and Family in this meme.  The purpose of this meme is to bring bloggers together, to learn about the person behind the computer screen, it's a great way of making new friends.

The Rules

  • Nominate five other bloggers in your post (All must have less than 250 subscribers)
  • Post five random facts about yourself
  • Answer the five questions that the tagged has asked you, then list your own five questions to ask others
  • Let your five friends know you have tagged them by commenting on their blog/tweeting them

My Five Random Facts

  1. Although I talk with a welsh accent, I was actually born in South Africa.  That really confuses some people when they ask me when I'm from! lol.
  2. I have 6 tattoos and would love to have more. 
  3. I love teapots, but very rarely use one!  I now have three, but they stay on the kitchen windowsill for decoration purposes only. 
  4. I'm a HUGE Twilight fan and getting stupidly excited about the next film coming out in just over a week!
  5. On a Tuesday night, I play darts for a local women's team.  I'm not particuarly good at it, but it's a good night out.

Five Questions I Was Asked

Do you have a nickname? If so, what is it and how did it come about?
I'm really boring and don't have a nickname.  Even at school I never really got one.  I'm sure my hubby has a few choice names for me though! lol.

If you could eat only one thing for a whole week, what would you choose?
Ooh, that's a hard one.  I think it would have to be pizza.  I love it.  But I think I would have to change the toppings every day though!

What is your biggest 'pet peeve'?
People who just don't turn up to things you have planned.  I don't mean those who have cancelled beforehand, I mean the ones who say that they're coming and then just never show.  Unfortunately for me, I seem to have a few friends like this and it really gets on my goat!

What's your favourite item of clothing that you own and why?
I don't have many clothes.  Since putting on weight, my wardrobe has gotten smaller, so there's not much in there!  If I could get away with it, I would probably wear my pyjamas all of the time.  Failing that, it would be my jeans.  They are so versatile as they can be worn casually or dressed up with a pair of heels and a sparkly top.

You have the means to travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
That's a no brainer.  I would go to Cape Town, South Africa.  I have so much family over there, that it's like a second home to me.
