Behind the Blog: 25 Random Facts About Me

It's been a bit quiet on here recently. There have been holidays (Provence, amazing), illnesses (me, gut related, very dull), school starting (Ned Year 1), nursery starting (Jack in baby room) and Jim has moved into pre-school. So I thought I would ease myself back into the swing of it by telling you 25 totally random facts about me. If I can think of 25.

Me trying to take a picture

1. Corinna is actually my middle name. My first name is Sara. But I've always been called Corinna. Well until I was 2. Then everyone started calling me Chippy and it stuck. 
2. I'm from Hampshire but I have lived in London for 16 years (5 of which are against my will).
3. For years I carried one of my wisdom teeth in my make-up bag in my handbag until one day I just couldn't find it.
4. I worked in publishing for 6 years.
5. I am Cordon Bleu trained.
6. I have a degree in Theology.
7. I have two dogs - Mouse and Loki.
8. I have three boys - Ned, Jim and Jack.
9. We thought Jack was a girl (we called the bump Mabel) until he was born and Jack was the only name we could agree on.
10. I love writing letters but no longer have anyone to write to.
11. I love gardening.
12. I will write a book one day. I have been attempting to since I was about 11.
13. I am desperate to go on the Orient Express - I can't see that happening any time soon.
14. I have quite bad anxiety - for which I have medication. At the moment.
15 I started riding horses when I was 4.
16. I used to play the flute and the guitar. Both quite badly. I would like to learn the piano.
17. This year I became a beauty guide for LimeLife by Alcone and so far I'm really enjoying it. 
18. I love reading. Agatha Christie, Jilly Cooper, and Nancy Mitford are my favourites. 
19. I wanted to do egg donation but because freaked out by my dodgy brain genes. So didn't. 
20. I love cheese. If I have become lactose intolerant it's going to really suck.
21. Before I had my first child I didn't like Yorkshire pudding or bread sauce. Now I can't stop eating them.
22. I set up a Facebook Group reluctantly earlier in the year. I completely and utterly love it and wish I'd done it years ago. You can find it here and find my YouTube channel here
23. If I could only have one item of make-up it would be mascara - and it would be the LimeLife Perfect mascara or the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye.
24. My bed is my favourite place to be. Always. 
25. Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin cannot be beaten smellwise in my opinion.
