Miss Cherry Red

Motherhood. Love. Life. And everything in between


Well… not special as such….

The rather gorgeous Jenny recently revealed seven things about herself that no one knows!  You can read it here.

Now, I wasn’t exactly tagged in the post but she did say that anyone who wanted to jump the bandwagon could, so I thought why not…. plus it’s been ages since I last blogged and I’m getting withdrawal (plus writers block).

So, here goes.  7 things you never knew about Miss Cherry Red:

1.  I have an unhealthy obsession with glitter nail polish

Seriously.  I just can’t help myself.  If my nail polish doesn’t have a sparkle in it, I’ll put a layer of glitter nail polish over the top!  I’ve got glittery polishes in red, silver, pink and gold!

2:   I only like the strawberry and orange creams in a tin of Quality Street.

I may eat the others, but only after I’ve demolished every cream one first.  Plus, given that most people consider the cream chocolates the food of the devil, I count myself lucky that I rarely have to fight someone for them!

3: The bed has to be made *my* way.

Now, before you get all ‘Christ, she’s a psycho…’ on me, I’d just like to say that I am well aware that this makes me sound like an utter fruit loop.  Honest.  It’s kind of like an OCD.

The Hot Geek makes the bed and I always remake it because it has to be ‘just so’.  We argue about it sometimes because when he does it because he doesn’t flatten the bottom sheet and doesn’t fluff the pillows.  I mean really?? Is it so fucking hard?

4: The smell of Southern Comfort makes me retch.

It is vile.  Truly vile.  It’s the liquid equivalent of evil.  Which is a shame because it used to be my tipple of choice… until I got so horrendously drunk on it when I was 17 that I had to be carried (literally carried….) home by my friends boyfriend.  Unfortunately for him I’d found out he’d been cheating on my friend so verbally (and drunkenly) abused him the whole way home…. he dropped me on my arse a couple of times.  Didn’t stop me though and 15 years later he still hasn’t let me forget it!

5:  I wanted a coffin as a bed when I was 14!

I wanted my parents to paint the walls of my bedroom black, put down a black carpet and let me sleep in a coffin.  No real reason really.  Just thought it’d be different!  (FYI: I didn’t get it.  Mum said No.)

6:  I hate the dentist

I know, total cliché, but I really do loathe going.  My actual dentist is quite nice but the thought of sticking a needle in my gum terrifies me.   My mother finds this hilarious – she doesn’t understand how I can give birth in utter silence yet cry at the thought of the dentist!

7:  I am desperately in love with Gabriel Byrne.

The man is just delish.  I mean have you seen End of Days?  Oh. My. God.   If he was running hell I’d sin every day!
