The Fairy Tale Tag!

A little while ago I was tagged by Ice Pandora in the cutest tag I've seen in forever! Fairy tales are magical. I have some incredibly fond memories of story time at bed time with my big book of fairy tales, taking time to carefully choose which one I wanted to hear that night. So let's get on with the questions...

Snow White - Do you consider yourself beautiful?
Not conventionally, but I'm totally okay with that. I actually wrote a post that answers this question last week.

Sleeping Beauty - How many hours do you sleep at night?
My ideal is nine hours (never happens!), but anything less than eight and you probably wouldn't want to talk to me that day.

Cinderella - Do you have a curfew?
Not anymore. It's one of the perks of being an old lady although I'm rarely out past twelve these days, which is one of the downsides of being an old lady ;)

Rapunzel - Do you love being outside?
Yes! Especially when the sun is shining but it's not too hot. I also really like being inside though, curled up under a blanket with a good book. 

Red Riding Hood - Do you trust strangers easily?
Not easily, but I don't automatically not trust them either. I like to think I'm an okay judge of character, it's served me well so far at least.

The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids - Are you easily fooled?
Mark forever tells me (really silly) things that aren't true and I believe him. Sometimes my common sense completely escapes me! But in most other circumstances I approach things with a healthy dose of skepticism.

Beauty and the Beast - What makes someone beautiful in your eyes?
Kindness, honesty, and the ability to make someone smile when they really need something to smile about.

The Little Mermaid - What would you sacrifice for love?
I think that a lot of the time, being with someone is about compromise. 

The Frog Prince - What do you find disgusting?
The sound of chewing. I think I'm allergic to that noise, it even makes me shiver just thinking about it! Quiet restaurants are my worst nightmare...!

Jack and the Beanstalk - Do you have any plants?
No because I always forget to water them and then I feel bad when I remember but it's too late! 

Puss in Boots - Do you have pets? If not, do you want them?
I have little Ralphie bunny, who means the world to me even if he is currently trying to chew my furniture and getting annoyed when I tell him not to!

Bluebeard - What is your weak point?
Sometimes I'm terrible for being easily distracted. Especially when it comes to Uni work. I can write a thousand word blog post in ten minutes but when I'm writing an essay I have to check twitter or instagram after every sentence. It's terrible! 

Pinocchio - What is your biggest wish?
To be happy, to never take anything for granted and to achieve at least some of the things I would like to.

Peter Pan - What is your mental age?
I think I have a bit of an old soul, but there will always be 5 year old Jennie not too far away. The one that laughs at silly jokes and still wants to eat ice cream directly from the pot.   

The Star Money - What is your most valuable possession?
My Grandmother's engagement ring. It's not worth a fortune, but it's irreplaceable to me. 

Gold Mary & Pitch Mary - Are you a hard worker or a lazy one?
When it's something that interests me or I can learn something from it, I'll always put everything I can into it. I'm definitely sometimes guilty of cutting a few corners if I can, if I'm not totally into something, which is a really bad quality and something I'm trying to stop because you never know when the opportunity to learn something new will pop up and I'm never going to learn from cutting corners! 

The Snow Queen - Who is your best friend? What would you do for them?
My mama. We've been through a fair amount of tough times together and I'd do pretty much anything for her.

The Princess and the Pea - Are you sensitive?
Anything sad, I'll cry. Anything happy, I'll cry. ;)

Godfather Death - What qualities make a good parent?
I think you have to be at a point in your life when you're able to give something so small, the whole world. Not necessarily in a financial capacity, more so emotionally. Always being there, through the good time and the bad times. When they need advice and when they just need a shoulder to cry on. To know when they need some help and to know when they need to figure things out for themselves. I don't know if I'll ever feel confident in my ability to do any of those things well.

The Twelve Dancing Princesses / The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes - Do you like parties?
It depends on the occasion, mostly yes though! But it's been forever since I've been to one.

The Emperor's New Clothes - Do you care a lot about your clothing?
Not really. I'm more than happy in a comfy smock dress, a cardigan and some tights.

The Brave Little Tailor - Do you consider yourself brave?
Up until a year or so ago I'd have said no, but I think I'm getting better at making brave decisions even if they're a million times harder to achieve than taking the easy option. I was also sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore (which never lies!), so maybe I'm braver than I think?

I Tag You!

Love, Jennie
