As everyone may have seen, Sammi (Beauty Crush) created this tag over on her YouTube channel! As I do not create content for YouTube (yet?), I thought I'd post my answers here, so let's get on with it! 

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
One horlicks, please! I'm not a fan of hot drinks! If I were to have a tea, it would have about 7 sugars and half a glass of milk - an abomination to British tea drinkers!
Okay.. Maybe sometimes I like Iced Tea but meh.. I wouldn't choose to drink it!
2. Favourite part of your roast?
My Mum does fab potatoes - she crushes OXO cubes over them and then roasts them, I really don't know how she gets them so perfect.. Even the veg is spot on! But pigs in blankets is my all time fave part of a roast.. 

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
My dunking biscuit goes into a glass of milk.. I love bourbon's. Love them. I could live off them. Bourbons. BOOOOURBOOONS!
Unless it's hot chocolate, and then it's the Leibniz.. Urm.. The ones that have frilly bits of chocolate.. Oh google it.. 

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
I come from a brass banding family.. I love going to the Whit Friday Marches.. How quirky of me!
I also love picnics, going t'pub, and feeding the ducks.. 

5. Favourite word?
Cheesybob! - Woodlouse.. 

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I know everyone knows this one but it has to be apples and pears, everyone knows what you mean and it's just so British!

7. Favourite sweet?
Rhubarb and Custards or Cola Cubes, it has to be! 

8. What would your pub be called?
The Great Central..
Because I'm from the Midlands - creativity lacking here!

9. No.1 British person
John Hurt is the guy that pops into my head, he's been around for ages!
But then the whole cast of Monty Python.. 

10. Favourite shop / restaurant
The shop that I equate Britain with is M&S! I've grown to hate this shop even though I love it's food and own several pairs of their shoes.. Love/Hate relationship is a definite here..

11. What British song pops into your head?
Bo-Rap! Queen were perfection!
Can I change my answer to number 9 Freddie Mercury? 

12. Marmite.
In sandwiches.
I mean I have to - Marmite is made up the road from me in Burton!
My current boyfriend has a jar of it on an award he got from his previous College!
We do love our Marmite around here..

Feel free to answer these questions, I'd love to see your answers!
