The British Tag

I keep seeing these British Tag blog posts, and since I posted about loving being british (and mostly the british sun we're actually finally having) with my Strawberry Picking last Saturday I feel like this tag might be good for me! 

1) How many cups of Tea and how many sugars?
Uh-oh, first question and I'm already a british failure - I HATE TEA.

2) Favourite part of your roast?
The roasties, obviously! Plus loads of gravy!

3) Favourite dunking biscuit?
Well, since I don't drink tea (or coffee) I don't really need a dunking biscuit! But I love chocolate digestives and custard creams on their own...

4) Favourite quintessentially british past time?
It has to be eating fish and chips by the seaside! We used to drive up to southend when I was younger just for fish and chips by the sea... & I used to love it! aaaahhhh, childhood memories.
I also love strawberry picking or drinking cider in a pub garden!

5) Favourite word?
Okay, I've kind of picked my favourite words, not word - but it's hard to choose!

Grub; for example 'pub grub'. Yummy food, but something quick, easy and probably really unhealthy - like a burger and chips.
Skew-whiff; all wonky... not straight.
Sloshed; drunk.
Yonks; ages... a long period of time! "I haven't seen you for yonks!"

6) Favourite cockney rhyming slang?
Some of the cockney rhyming slang is great, I actually used it for my photography book I had made about London, called Hail and Rain (Train). Cream Crackered (Knackered) is probably my favourite; I actually use that one!

7) Favourite sweet?
Toxic Waste used to be my favourite when I was younger, I love sour sweets! And Strawberry Jellies.

8) What would your pub be called?
We always drive past a pub in Frinton called 'The Black Boy', which makes me laugh because surely that's not even allowed any more! Maybe I'd steal that...
Or maybe something cat related? Fat Cat's? Puss in Boots?

9) No. 1 British Person?
Do I have to say The Queen on this one? I feel obliged, everyone seems to love her!
Or David Beckham, he's pretty cool, and nice to look at...
Can I also say Harry Potter .. He's british, but I actually mean Harry Potter, not Daniel Radcliffe.

10) Which British song pops into your head?
Wonderwall - Oasis. That one's a classic.
Or maybe some Robbie Williams - he's a classic himself!

11) Favourite shop / Restaurant?
The Beefeater. or Missguided online!

12) Marmite?

13) Favourite British TV Show?
Gotta be Misfits for me, or The Inbetweeners.
"You bumder!"

Hope you've loved my british post, I think you should all do it too!

  4. You're not the only British person who dislikes tea, I hate the stuff! I always feel like I've failed my national stereotype because I don't drink tea. XD

    1. haha! it's true, we have ... I bet there's loads of people that pretend to like tea just so they don't! haha! xx

    2. I think the only thing I come close to liking is iced tea, but I'm still not too keen on that. :L

  5. You hate tea? You lost a few British points for that lol. I love your answer of Harry Potter, he's one of my favourite British people too

    1. haha, just a few! lets face it, it's just discoloured water anyway ;)
      Harry Potter is ace! If you don't like him you're basically not british at all.... xx

  6. Ha ha! I love that you chose a fictional character as your top British person! :)
    I think your blog is great so I want to nominate you for the Liebster Award. It's totally optional to participate but it's kind of fun and if you want to do it I have a post on my blog about what to do.
    Have a good day!
