The British Tag

24 January 2015
A good old tag post always goes down a treat and honestly what could be better than the British Tag? I've seen a lot of bloggers and youtubers take a stab at this one and I thought I'd do the same :) 

*not my own photo
How many cups of tea do you have and how many sugars? 
I usually have a cup in the morning as soon as I roll out of bed to wake myself up and shame on me, no sugar. I only add sugar to tea when you're buying tea out and you know it would be horrible otherwise or else when I really need an energy kick - being a coffee hater I need all the energy I can get from that. 

Favourite part of your roast? 
I'd have to say homemade roast potatoes or mash with gravy swamping it all - nothing beats that. In fact its really hard to pick just one part of my roast, I love all of it, bar Yorkshire puddings and if I could eat roast dinners everyday, I would. 

Favourite dunking biscuit? 
A good rich tea is always a winner, its actually quite hard to find something to beat it but equally as nice and catering to my chocolate addicted self is a chocolate bourbon, yum. 

Favourite quintessentially British pastime? 
I wouldn't say I have one, in fact when I think of British pastime I automatically think of polo or rugby, neither would go down very well for me. If long walks on a nice sunny day in the country count then I'll say that. 

Favourite word? 
I have a tendency to say most things are lovely which is awfully British and I also say wee a lot instead of little but that's more colloquial not British I don't think. 

Cockney rhyming slang? 
I can't say I know an awful lot of Cockney rhyming slang but I do love the apple and pears (for stairs) or the dog and bone for using the phone. All very fun. 

Favourite sweet? 
As I'm older now I love having Bon Bons or Rhubarb and Custards from time to time but when I was younger Parma Violets and Flying Saucers were drool worthy. There's probably so many more that I can think of but they're the first ones that spring to mind.  

What would your pub be called? 
Oh goodness, this would be something typically involving an arms or rose or something else along those lines. I've no idea what I would call it though, I'll have to have a long hard think. 

Number 1 British person? 
I should probably say the Queen since shes the most famous but I'm quite fond of Prince Harry, always the wild child. There's also plenty of musicians, actors and actresses but I'll just stick with the Queen. 

Favourite shop / restuarant? 
I love Primark for absolute bargains, most shops are everywhere nowadays so its a bit hard to differentiate where they all started but yeah. Also Boots or Superdrug for my beauty needs! In terms of restuarants its the same, I do love settling down in a nice little pub in the middle of nowhere and having a good old traditional roast or 'pub food''. 

What British song pops into your head? 
Not so much a song but bands, Snow Patrol are a firm (and local) favourite, also Coldplay, The Beatles and the like. Also Oasis and I'm quite fond of The Kinks song, you really got me. I'm sure theres plenty of newer British artists too that I adore, including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, One Direction etc.  

Marmite, yes or no? 
A big massive no. I've tried it once and it was enough. The smell is horrid, as if that isn't a big enough of warning for you, just avoid it at all costs. I know some people who love it but no, it really is a love or hate thing. 

Thats all of my answers, I hope you enjoyed reading them and if you've done this tag please leave me links or if you haven't why not give it a try and let me know. I actually found it really fun!

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo

  2. What is a marmite? Haha loved reading this!


    1. its a spread usually for toast, sort of like a dark jam but it tastes terrible :) and thanks! x

  3. I never take cream and sugar in my tea either, only when I'm out. I remember asking for both cream and sugar in my tea on a plane once and the stewardess just looked at me and said, "You don't look like a cream and sugar girl to me." "Not usually," I told her. Anyways, great post!

    1. It's lovely how she could judge your tea preferences lol! It's a weird habit of mine but it always needs that extra sugar, thank you! x

  4. mmm i adore homemade roast potatoes!
