A trip down memory lane. My first times.

I came across another fab tag on the wonderful blog which is Frasers Fun House and it has been sat in my drafts for a year. It is all about first times and it looked interesting and had me reminiscing.


Here are my answers I hope you enjoy reading them! If you want to do this tag feel free to copy the questions. 

First app you check when you wake up in the morning?
I will pick my phone up while I'm in bed and the first app that I go for it usually Twitter. Instead of reading the morning newspaper I find out what is going on in the world from Twitter. 

First broken bone?
My arm. I fell down the stairs when I was about three years old. I don't remember falling down the stairs or any pain but remember sitting on the settee eating dry cereal waiting for my dad to take me to the hospital. I also remember being woken up at the hospital and asked if I want any hot chocolate. I didn't, I just wanted to sleep. Some things never change.

First foreign country you ever visited?
I have only ever stayed in the UK. I have visited Wales and Scotland. The first time I left England was to pick up some cows my dad had bought from somewhere in Scotland. We lived on a farm when I was a child so it wasn't as random as it sounds.

My first make-up item?
I think my first proper item of make-up was a Rimmel lipstick in the shade Heather Shimmer. It didn’t suit me at all, but for some reason back in the 90’s girl of my age group was wearing it and it seemed like a good idea, the photos tell a different story.

My first ever tape or CD?
Now That's What I Call Music! 23 was the first album I bought out of my own money. I bought it on cassette tape when I was out with my friends in town.

My first car?
I don't drive now but when I was 17 my dad bought me a Vauxhall Astra which I did drive a few times. I just didn't take well to driving. lol

My first Celebrity crush?
Peter Andre!! That body!!



My first cooking experience?
My great Aunt is an amazing baker and I remember making fruit scones with her. No matter how hard I try my scones are never as good as her's!

My first ever boyfriend/girlfriend?
My first ‘boyfriend’ was a boy who was in my class at primary school. He was called Kieron and I thought he was lovely. We didn't kiss or anything because when you are about 8 years old. When I was that age I thought that's how babies were made.

My first ever mobile phone?
I was 18 years old and for my birthday I got an Alcatel phone which looked just like this! I remember ringing up to register it and it was T-Mobile and they asked my date of birth and they realised it was my birthday and decided to send me a card with £10 credit on just to be nice. The phone was huge and looking back now it looks like a toy one but at the time it was quite fancy. I thought it was anyway.

My first fear?
The Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough. We lived on one side of the river tees and my dad had a business on the other. It was easier to go across than drive around. I used to have such fear of going across it for no reason at all. You used to drive your car on a platform and it went across. I swear every time I thought I was going to end up in the river.


My first internet activity?
When I first got the internet the first thing I remember doing was chatting in the WWE (Wrestling) chat rooms. I also remember downloading music from Napster. 

My first job?
I got a Saturday job at some stables near where we lived when I was 12 or 13. In exchange for mucking out horses I would get riding lessons. The stupid thing was I had my own horses at home but the grass is always greener and someone else's horses are always better.

My first language?
English. It's my only language.

First musical instrument?
I played the recorder at school. I only wanted to play it so I could go to the music teacher on a Monday afternoon and get out of normal lessons. hehehe The people who played recorders had to play it in the assemblies and I used to fake it. I used to move my fingers but not blow. 

My first pet?


I'm not sure who came first Anchor the huge German Shepherd dog or Scampi my first pony

My first piercing and when did I get it?
I got my ears pierced on my 16th birthday. My parents wouldn't let me get them done any earlier. They lasted a few weeks. I did a lot of horse riding and pierced ears seemed to get caught on everything. I soon took them out.

My first tattoo?
I don't have any! I do want one though. I want one that means something to me. I might get one for my 40th birthday later this year.

My first soft toy?
I was given a pink teddy bear when I was born. It was made by my godmother. I had it until I left home and then my mother decided to throw it out. She wasn't sentimental and didn't think that I would want to keep it.

My first thought today?
Oh my goodness, is that the time! I slept until 10am which is late for me now. 

My first time on a ship?
I have never been on a ship. The closest I have came is in a rowing boat when I was child. I didn't like it. My uncle was rocking it and I was screaming to get off. Hmmf.

The first book I remember reading?
 I remember being read stories as a child by my Grandad and the one that stands out is Each Peach Pear Plum.


The first book I remember reading myself has to be a Roald Dahl one. I would read his books over and over. It was probably something like Matilda or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They were my favourites.

The first concert I ever attended?
Way back when I was a teenager (in the 90's) I went to one of those radio roadshows where there was a load of singers and groups on. There was Let Loose and Ant & Dec were there as PJ & Duncan.

The first film I remember seeing?
It has to be Jaws for the sole reason that my dad got in so much trouble off my mam for letting my brother and I watch it because we were too young. My brother was hid behind the TV scared. Bad parenting. hehehe I did used to love watching films with my dad though. 

The first person I talked to today?
It was Becky my teen. I walked in her bedroom telling her to get up. She was actually awake, she just couldn't be bothered to move.

The first text I sent today?
I text Stu to ask him where the back door keys were.

The first thing I do every morning?
Hit snooze on my alarm. Then I always run to the loo.

The first thing I do when I get home?
Take my shoes off and switch my laptop on.

The first time you ever got drunk?
My best friend & I were so sneaky. I was about 13/14 years old. She said to her parents that she was sleeping at mine and I said I was sleeping at hers. We left our house in normal clothes with little shorts and tight tops underneath. We took the frumpy clothes off and hid them in a hedge and went off to meet some boys from the next village over. They had bottles of Castaway. The first alcopop I can remember drinking. lol I may have also stolen some Gin from my dad. Oops. The night ended with my friend running down a hill and twisting her ankle badly. We ended up back at her house and a trip to A&E. This was at about 2am. Her mother was furious. Thankfully my parents never found out even when I toddled the mile back home, with barely any sleep the next morning with my first ever hangover. I seriously thought I was dying but couldn't tell my parents. 

I really loved answering these questions and thinking about all the happy memories that I have.
