A couple of years ago, “The British Tag” was created on You Tube by none other Samantha Maria (adore her, subscribed to her, read her blogs etc etc) and I thought, that looks fun. So…
How much tea and sugar do you take in a day?
I used to consume up to 8 cups of tea in the past with sugar. I have not had sugar in my tea for years now as I prefer the taste without and usually switch between regular tea with alternative milk (almond or rice), green tea or hot water. I now have 4 to 6 cups (perhaps still too much).
Favourite part of your roast?
I no longer eat meat so it would have to be vegan Yorkshire puddings. I am a sucker for Yorkshire puddings. I could eat them all day with any meal.
Favourite dunking biscuit?
I have never been much of a dunker as I don’t like bits of biscuit in my tea (gross). If I did it would be the plain old digestive biscuit (boring I know but an old favourite).
Favourite quintessential British past time?
Going on school trips to be beside the seaside beside the sea : )
Favourite British word?
Knackered. Meaning, tired.
Favourite Cockney rhyming slang?
You would’t Adam and Eve it. Meaning, you wouldn’t believe it.
I don’t really eat sweets now but I did love cherry drops and strawberry bon bons.
What would your pub be called?
Number one British person?
For me it has to be from the comedy sector (as I love a good laugh, when I can) and it has to be the one and only Sir David Jason! Known in the UK for such roles as Granville in “Open All Hours”, Mr Larkin/ Pop Larkin in “The Darling Buds Of May” My all time favourite Derek Trotter (Del Boy) in “Only Fools and Horses” and of course Detective Inspector Jack Frost in “A Touch Of Frost”. Sir David Jason is one of my all time British comedy heroes and I absolutely adore him. Cushty. Meaning, good : )
Favourite shop/ restaurant?
John Lewis or Marks and Spencer.
Favourite British song?
“Kissing You” by the wonderful Des’ree, used in Baz Luhrmann “Romeo and Juliet”. Thumbs up for the fish tank scene between Claire Danes and the gorgeous Leonardo DiCaprio with this song playing……brings back teenage memories : )
Marmite. Yes or No?
Yes, yes, yes, with sunflower oil butter on toast and a nice cuppa tea!
