Confessions Of The British Maple (With Relevant Hashtags)

Some of you know me, some of you don’t! Here’s everything you didn’t know:

  1. On the rare occasion that I am free to bake/cook alone I measure out all my ingredients then narrate what I’m doing as if I’m an actual TV chef (picture a tired, clumsy, female Jamie Oliver)
  2. I have the best arguments with Mr. British Maple in my head, about three hours after he’s pissed me off.
  3. I tipped my ex-hairdresser even after he cut the top of my ear off…just to reassure him that “it’s fine, honestly, I’m really fine”
  4. I once let someone call me Tracey for three weeks because I didn’t want to embarrass them by correcting them
  5. I epically overthink pretty much everything
  6. I HATE the misuse of apostrophes and am neurotic about my own use of them
  7. Having said that, I don’t quite know what to do with a semicolon
  8. Until eight months ago I had no idea what a hashtag was
  9. This blog is the scariest thing I’ve ever done
  10. Whenever I buy something, I NEVER take the top/ first one. This applies to newspapers, clothes, packets, CDs, mugs, you name it
  11. I get slightly obsessed by on-screen couples who have good chemistry. Excessive IMDb-ing and Googling to make sure their real life relationships are solid feature heavily during my darkest moments. ♥ ♥ ♥ Emma and Hook, Rory and Jess, Aria and Ezra, Veronica and Logan…♥ ♥ ♥
  12. I do my best ‘blogging’ at 4am when I’ve finally got the kids back to sleep and I am wide awake; but refuse to leave my bed to write anything down
  13. I really like country and western music
  14. I truly believe everyone’s life would be improved if we all had a theme tune

    Oh all of those couples…. just all of them! So many tears. I’m a massive over thinker too! This was a lovely read.

    Love this – I can identify with a lot of them! I was mistaken as my neighbour whose a childminder once and then the moment passed for me to correct them…. it went on for a while without me having to actually say anything but eventually I had to fess up!

    Thank you for linking up to a#KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again on Sunday x

    Haha, this is brill! I do so many of these and I would love, I mean LOVE, a theme tune. (If you’ve ever watched ‘Family Guy’ there is an early episode where Peter imagines having a theme tune / soundtrack and it’s exactly what I want!) #KCACOLS

    This is a great post and I never know whether to tip my hairdresser or not. I can’t believe he cut the top of your ear off! My blog too was the scariest thing I had done, it’s not so scary once it’s done though. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x
