Tag Me - Tag You

Hi all, something a bit different today! I was tagged by Tasha at Tasha's Treasure Trove a couple of weeks ago and have finally sat down to follow it. I like these kinds of posts, they're always interesting to nosy people like myself!
So here are the rules for the people I tag - 

1. You must post 11 random things about yourself
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
3. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
4. Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them
5. No stuff about "you're tagged if you're reading this" - legitimately tag people
So as this is quite a long 'tag' I will keep the 11 random facts short and sweet.
1. I don't know what colour eyes I have. Either hazel or green. I'm weird huh?!

2. I met Sir Ian McKellen last year (at a charity cricket event). And didn't know he was gay! Hahahaha.

3. When I was small I told my mum I wanted to work in the Spar. 

4. There is an embarrassing amount of dogs with the name Sadie.

5.My favorite flower is a daffodil (can you tell I'm Welsh?). And in the first year of dating, the bf bought me 200 daffodils. Twice. :)
6. I love cheese. Feta and halloumi are my favourites.

7.  I have never watched Labyrinth. Nor Top Gun.

8. I want to find a salon in Wellington that does reallllly cool nail art. Not like the art I had done in London recently.

9. I sometimes wish they did vegetarian Big Macs.

10. My favourite city in the world is New York. I saw them filming Ugly Betty there on my trip and couldn't BELIEVE it!. I *heart* Betty!

11. I own more pairs of shoes than I'd ever be able to count. 

Here are Tasha's questions
1. What is your favourite animal and why?
A bird, because I am obsessed with them! Probably a hummingbird or a sparrow are my favs. 

2. When you wake up in the morning what is the first thing that goes through your mind?
What time is it? 

3. If you had to put a colour to your personality what would it be?
Coral. Bright, confident and girly. 

4. What's your favourite childhood memory?
My dad standing at the top of the school yard when I was four, to collect me so that I could see my newborn youngest sister, Alice, for the first time!
5. Favourite sweet or candy?
Difficult as a lot of candy isn't veggie! So Galaxy chocolate - I miss that from the UK!
6. Best holiday you've ever had?
Ooh so many - but 5 days in NYC were amazing, and the roadtrip the bf and I did in the US en route to moving to NZ was awesome. 

7. Do you listen to one particular genre of music or several?
Several - pop mainly though.
8. What was your dream career as a child?
Haha - a librarian or journalist! Geeeek!
9. Which book changed your life, if any did at all? 
I read SO many books as a geeky child that they probably all changed my life. I do love Chaucer though.
10. What's your most treasured possession?
The jewelery I received on birthdays and Christmases growing up. I left it all safe at home with my mum when I moved away.
11. Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years' time?
Ooh who knows! I never planned to ever move to NZ so goodness knows where life will take me next.... :)
