The British Tag....

I saw this tag over on the lovely Lisa's blog, Lisa's Life absolutely ages ago and it's sat in my drafts ever since...You know I love these things so here goes....

1.How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
I don't drink tea very often.....I'm more of a coffee drinker. I take milk and two sugars.

2. Favourite part of your roast?
The favourite part of my roast dinner has to be Roast Parsnips....They have to be fresh one's though....Frozen one's just don't taste the same....Sorry Aunt Bessie....hehehe

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
My favourite dunking biscuit has to be Chocolate HobNobs. hehehe....Whenever I think of Hob nobs I always think of what Peter Kay says about them...

"Hobnobs are like marines, hobnobs. They're like the bloody S.A.S. of the biscuit world, hobnobs. You dip a hobnob, it's like, 'Again! Again! Dip me again, I'm going nowhere me, son, dip me! Is that all you've got? Come on!"

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Spending time at the beach with proper fish and chips before we come home....

5. Favourite word?
My favourite word has to be "Knackered"....It's a British word isn't it....I'm knackered I'm going to

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I know Cockney rhyming slang but don't really use it.....I remember my dad always used to say he was going for a Jimmy Riddle - Piddle....

7. Favourite sweet?
I love all the retro sweets like Blackjacks, Fruit Salads, Kola cubes, Drumstick lollies, Midget gems and Jelly babies...

8. What would your Pub be called?
I really have no idea....!

9. No.1 British person
Ant and Dec....I know they are two people but you can't separate them! They are just likeable guys...

10. Favourite Shop / Restaurant?
It has to be the Pound shops like Poundland....I love them....hehehe My favourite restaurant has to be the Brewers Fayre one's....Nice food and good value....All the one's I've been to have fab places for kids to play too....

11. What British song pops into your head?
Bohemian Rhapsody!! You can't beat a bit of Freddie!

12. Marmite?
1 word... WRONG!

I tag everyone to take part in this fun tag!


  1. Ha ha, that Bohemian Rhapsody quote is so me! I'm with you on chocolate hobnobs too (but just eating not dunking), and as for roasted veg. Yep fresh all the way (apart from peas).

  2. No tea and no marmite?...hmm im not sure if i can trust you now ;)

    1. Aww! :( In my defense I drink tea maybe about once a week! I'm not all x

  3. Love it, what a fun tag! Definitely agree that roasted parsnips have to be fresh and not frozen Aunt Bessie's one (although they did save my sanity on Christmas Day!) I also love Blackjacks and Kola Cubes - haven't had them in years though! Have to say though, I'm not with you on the Marmite question - am a big fan! :-)

    1. Thank you!
      I haven't had Kola cubes for years either...So good! x

  4. Kim this is so long ago I couldn't even remember most of my answers! Glad you enjoyed doing it and I think I picked several favourite British people so you're fine with Ant & Dec! :) X

    1. hahaha! I did say it was absolutely ages ago.....I love these tags so can't bear to delete them from my drafts! They all get done eventually x
