The British TAG

I feel like I haven't done a tag for ages! Since they're one of my favourite types of post to write, I think it's time to do one right now. 

I chose to do the British tag because I'm half British. Although I live in Finland and have lived most of my life here, I still feel quite strongly towards my other homecountry. I've been brought up in a mixture of both cultures and I just, quite honestly,  can't get enough of all things British! So here we go!



1. How many cups of tea do you have a day?
At least a couple. In the morning I love to drink some English breakfast tea. In the afternoon I might have something a bit more exotic (today I had coke flavoured tea..it was a bit weird) and in the evening I enjoy my green teas. 

2. Favourite part of your roast?
I really really want to answer baby carrots and there's a good reason for that. I used to love eating carrots before I found out I'm allergic to them. But only to raw carrots. So nowadays, anytime somebody actually cooks carrots, I go crazy.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
Oh deer, I hardly ever eat biscuits. Digestive's though are a safe answer I should think. So lame but also classic!

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Afternoon tea including all them goodies. And I also like the idea of after work pubbing. Nobody does that in Finland, I've basically never done it, but I love the thought of it. Not the drinking part though, just the meeting people. And eating...I like eating haha.

5. Favourite British word?
Cheers is such a fun thing to say! I love it. Also, forgive me for swearing, but bugger. The Finnish language has so horrible swear words, you can't even translate them properly into English. And so I think bugger is a rather cute way to swear. 

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
Nope, I'm afraid nothing pops into my mind. 

7. Favourite British sweet?
Oh my goodness, Quality Street of course! The toffee coins to be precise. How cruel is it, that they actually started selling them in Finland a couple of years ago and the price is insanely high?! I still buy them...

8. What would your pub be called?
The Wishing Well. Because Well.

9. Number one British person?
I really like Kate Middleton :) 

10. Favourite shop/restaurant?
Boots, Topshop, Superdrug, Miss Selfridges, New Look... As for restaurants, I can't pick one (didn't go too well with the shops either, did it?), but I think pub food is actually the best. 

11. What British song pops into your head?
For some reason, the theme song of Rosie and Jim :D haha aww. But also, one of my all time favourite's, Wannabe. The Spice Girls were just about the best thing in the world at one point of my life.



12. Marmite?
No thank you. :)
