The British Tag

So in this post I am going to be doing The British Tag! I haven't done a tag post in while and this one kept popping up in my YouTube subscription box and I have really enjoyed watching them. So I thought I would do it on the blog. Aptly I am sitting here with my cup of tea and a biscuit, feeling very British, so I shall get started!

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
It depends really. I would say probably 2 - 3 cups a days on average. I mainly drink tea in the winter when its really cold, so that may go up to 4 and in the summer it can go down to 1 or sometimes none if its a super hot day. And no sugars. partly because it makes me feel healthier, but mainly because I don't like it.
2. Favourite part of your roast
YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS! You could give me an entire plate of them and I would love you forever. Also pigs in blankets (sausages in bacon).
3. Favourite dunking biscuit
A trusty digestive. I love the chocolate ones the most (even more so the dark chocolate ones - I find the milk ones can be a bit sweet) but a plain one will suit me just fine. I don't like dunking my biscuits to long I like them to retain some crunch.
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Watching Wimbledon. I wait all year for it, it is the highlight of the summer and I love to sit and watch it all day and do nothing else. I refuse to leave the house on the day of the final. I also love cream teas in the sunshine, and ice creams on the beach when its raining.
5. Favourite word?
Lovely. You may have guessed this is you read my blog a lot or follow me on twitter, but it is my favourite word, I will use it to describe anything and it just making me think of happiness and I just love it.
6. Cockney rhyme slang?
Apples and Pears, Dog and Bone, Rosie Lee, Ruby Murray ............. my grandparents are from the east end, it has been drummed into me.
7. Favourite sweet
I love Malteasers, but I'm thinking that's counts as chocolate, so I guess Strawberry bonbons or fudge.
8. What would your pub be called?
Honestly no idea. Probably The____ Hedgehog, I don't know why but hedgehogs just came to my mind. The Lovely Hedgehog? I don't know. Bad question. Moving on.
9. No.1 British person
There are so many amazing British people all for different reasons, how can I chose? I'm going to say William Shakespeare because he is the ultimate writer and possibly the ultimate British person.
10. Favourite shop / restaurant
My favourite restaurants in Britain are Yo!Sushi and Gourmet Burger Kitchen (they do the best chips ON THE PLANET). My favourite shop would be Topshop or Waterstones. Clothes and Books, naturally.
11. What British song pops into your head?
Every person I've seen do this says the spice girls, but the first one that I thought of was Imagine by John Lennon. Its so timeless and classic and I will always love it.
12. Marmite.

I am going to tag Through A Cats Eyes, Faye Olivia, Lexie Alexandra, Lost In A Library and anyone else who would like to do this.

Also, side note, today is my blogs two year birthday so Happy Birthday Blog. I love youss.
