The British Tag

the british tag

TGIF blogger buddies, I hope you're all getting geared up for a lovely weekend. For todays post I'm stealing an idea from Lily Pebbles YT video - 'The British Tag'. As I've not stepped into the scary world of Youtube yet I thought I'd do mine written - you will just have to imagine me in my red, white and blues sipping on a cup of PG's finest tips.

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
Hmm I do love tea but this is definitely seasonal as I cannot stand hot drinks in the heat. I'd say on a winters day I could do about 5, but if it's hot I'd switched to iced tea and then when I'm feeling like I need a detox it's Twinings fruit infusion green tea. Definitely no sugar! My nan used to say if you're not ready to have tea without sugar, you're not ready to have tea...

2. Favourite part of your roast
YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS! But I actually don't like the proper crispy type ones, I like them when they're all over sized and doughy. Although cauliflower cheese and stuffing are a very close 2nd!! 

3. Favourite dunking biscuit
Anything chocolate - I tend to like a bourbon because they can go deep and have good staying power. Choc varieties of cookie, hobnob, digestive are also acceptable.
cocktails in teacups revolution clapham junction
I'm not sure that's a cup of tea actually.... But we drink everything out of teacups!
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Hmm... Not sure I have one! Although I do like to while away an afternoon in a pub garden. I also LOVE going to the races - that's pretty British isn't it?! 

5. Favourite word?
What a random question - I love words! 'Babe' has been a long time favourite of mine but I also like really unnecessarily long words that sound really dramatic - eg: besmirching, jobsworth, fraternising, 

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
Dog and Bone guvnor!! Or Jack Jone (own). My dad grew up that way so he is full of them.

7. Favourite sweet
Not actually a big sweet fan - I'm all about the chocolate. Anything with peanut butter and I'm sold although that's not very British...

I love a pub garden!
8. What would your pub be called?
I love really funny ones - there's one round the corner from me called 'Sir Loin of Beef' which I find hilarious. Although I'd give in to something really girlie and sickly sweet like 'The Pink Princess' ha ha- and it would be modelled on the +Benefit Cosmetics UK  pub! 

9. No.1 British person
Hmm this is a tough one because there's so many to choose from - probably Danny Jones from Mcfly because I just love him - and them and they make me proud to be a Brit. Ed Westwick is also an excellent example.

10. Favourite shop / restaurant
I can't afford to shop there too often but I think +TED BAKER are a great example of a great British brand and their merchandising just feels so British to me. In store the decor feels so unique, and sort of 'foresty'. 

11. What British song pops into your head?
Weirdly when you say 'British' songs it tends to be football type chants that pop in my head... I think the first one was 'Glory, Glory Man United' although 'Home is Where the Heart is' is my favourite one of that type. I also think of indie music as really British... 

12. Marmite.
NO NO NO NO. Unless it's crisps... 

So there you have it - am I a good enough Brit? I would like to now tag everyone reading - please leave me a link if you have done it on your blog or on Youtube. If you enjoy my posts, I'd love it if you followed me: bloglovin // twitter - until next time.
