28 Facts About Me! ~ A Birthday Post!

28 facts.png

Hi lovely people! Happy Friday! Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEE! As this post publishes I’ll be spending most of my birthday in work but I thought to celebrate it here on the blog I’d share 28 facts/things about me – get to know the blogger style! 28 because today I turn 28 (I know, I look much younger, thank you).


  1. I am Welsh (and extremely proud).
  2. I am a Welsh speaker.
  3. I wear glasses but have only done so since I was 19.
  4. My first job was in Asda (and I did not enjoy it very much).
  5. When I was little I wanted to be a doctor but knew I would quit if one of my patients died so that dream was short lived…
  6. I decided I wanted to be a Welsh teacher when I was 14 and I’ve now been doing that job for 6 years. (Contrary to most guesses I am a secondary school teacher)
  7. I dye my hair red and have been doing so for 8 years.
  8. I have a birthmark on my neck in the shape of a love heart.
  9. I do not have any tattoos but if I did get one it would be a feather.
  10. I have an enormous crush on Hugh Laurie (I met him and cried).
  11. Meryl Streep is my idol in every aspect of my life (#Queen).
  12. I dislike cheese (which people usually gasp in horror about!).
  13. I am scared of heights – I don’t mind flying though.
  14. The first time I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone I had nightmares about Voldemort coming out of my head and my Mum had to speak to my teacher (I was in primary school).
  15. I was Head Girl and Prom Queen when in school (not that you’d guess the latter now!).
  16. I do not like chocolate ice cream and I’m not a big chocolate cake fan either.
  17. I definitely want children in the future but I’m not fussed on marriage.
  18. I am incredibly sarcastic and sassy (just ask my friends, they’ll back me up).
  19. I probably own more books that I haven’t read than ones I have.
  20. One time I got hit in the head by a football in school and it knocked me out. On the yard. In front of EVERYONE. (please do feel free to laugh at this)
  21. I’ve never been to Scotland or Ireland but I am so desperate to.
  22. My go-to cheer me up film is Mamma Mia.
  23. Wing Jones is a book that actually changed my life in a very brilliant way.
  24. I adore everything Disney – I used to have a tumblr blog with 30k+ followers.
  25. Even though outwardly I am a confident person, I often lack self-confidence and doubt myself a LOT.
  26. I often give too much of myself to other people.
  27. Spiders and moths terrify me. As do most creepy crawly type things.
  28. Blogging and books have helped me make some of my very best friends in life.

  2. Happy belated birthday! This post was such a good idea Kelly! I too have been knocked out in school, but by a Rounder’s ball 😦 Also, SNAP, red hair for me too! Great post and hope you had a lovely day 🙂

  3. Happy late birthday 🎉! I loved finding out more about you, plus I can definitely relate on the whole scared of heights but not of flying 😂🤗🤗


  4. Happy birthday wonderful lady! I miss your face. I was trying to think of something interesting to comment on your post, but all I could think after reading it was “you dye your hair? OMG that’s the perfect shade of red”. Also, I have a birthmark in the shape of a baby foot and it has little toes and everything, but a heart is much cuter. And I have a feather tattoo. I miss your face x


  5. Happiest of Birthdays Kelly! ❤ ❤ ❤ I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, I very much enjoyed reading these facts about you. I'm also not a big fan of chocolate & nodded my head YASSSS while reading this haha! ❤


  6. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful day!
    What a fun list of facts.
    I also dislike chocolate ice cream…but I’m not really a fan of ice cream at all. (With the exception of homemade vanilla that is.) And I’m always met with a chorus of gasps when I tell people this.
    #25 is something I also struggle with. I understand the plight, sister. Thanks for sharing!


  7. Happy Birthday… OMG, we have so much in common. 🙂 🙂 And I might steal this post concept as I’m gonna be 26 on 25th.. hehe.
    I love cheese but I don’t eat anything sweet(ice cream, cakes, chocolates, etc.) though most people can’t quite believe it because I’m such a very lively person…


  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I can’t believe you don’t like chocolate ice cream or cheese, but I too despise chocolate cake and cannot recall anyone who’s said that before! I extend it to any cake tbh 🙈🙈
    I really like Mamma Mia too- I don’t think I’m going to get to see the sequel in the cinema and I’m gutted 😔. Also a huge Disney fan 😊
