3 things about myself:
- Orchids are my favourite flowers. They were also my nan’s favourite flowers and they always remind me of her. I’m still yet to manage to keep one alive, but they’re beautiful while they last.
2. I’m a self-confessed Eastenders addict. It is the only show I have watched consistently my entire life. I rarely miss an episode! My mum used to binge watch it when she was pregnant with me. A lot of people don’t get why I’m such a fan of the show, but I just love the drama.
3. I have a really bizarre middle name. It’s Chaley. It’s pronounced like ‘ch-ay-lee’, not ‘ch-aR-lee’ as everyone seems to think! My dad was the one who picked it, and originally wanted it to be my first name, thank god my mum stopped him… I would have been Chaley Buday… how awful.
- What was the biggest mystery you have solved?
Ooo this is actually really hard! I really don’t know how to answer this, so I guess I’ll just say the day I was diagnosed with Bipolar, everything just made sense. I understood myself a bit more, I had explanations for my thoughts and behaviours, I realised I wasn’t broken and different from everyone else. I was the same as a lot of people and I’d be able to fix it.
2. If you were to create a lucky charm what would it be or what would it be made of?
To quote my fiance, he said “a picture of my face and it would be made of solid gold”… I’ve only ever had one lucky charm and that was a necklace given to me by my nan. I kind of like that it stands the test of time and it always reminds me of her. It’s like taking a little piece of her with me on those days I need an extra boost.
3. Which Disney character are you?
According to this test, I’m Hercules! Ha! I haven’t got a clue who I’d want to be…
4. What GIF do you use on a daily basis?
To be frank, I don’t really use GIFs, let alone on a daily basis…
5. What was the funniest thing you’ve ever been told?
Again, I’m being utterly useless but my fiance makes me laugh on a daily basis, more so than anyone I’ve ever met. Even when I’m super annoyed at him, he manages to make me forget all about it by laughing along with him. It’s one of his best traits.
