TAG: The British Tag

I saw this tag on Luscious
‘s blog last week and thought it looked such a fun tag, so I had to give
it a go! 

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How
many sugars?
I usually have two large cups of English Breakfast, or PG
Tips in the morning with my breakfast. One if I am rushing, then I will grab
another on the go. Then later on maybe a peppermint tea or at the moment, I am
quite liking liquorice tea. I don’t take sugar; I’m sweet enough as my Grandma used to
say πŸ™‚
2. Favourite part of your roast?
Mashed potato. I absolutely love creamy mash! 
3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
I really don’t like soggy biscuits, so I don’t dunk I’m
afraid. My favourite biscuit would probably be a plain digestive though.
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
A nice wander around a quaint little village and then
sitting in the beer garden on a sunny day. Or afternoon tea in Harrods with
little cucumber sandwiches and scones, served on a tiered cake stand. 
5. Favourite word?
Basically and lovely. I get teased so much in work for
saying basically, especially if I am trying to explain something *blush*.
6. Cockney rhyming slang?
I’m moving to London in September, so I am trying to get to
grips with a bit of rhyming slang. My favorite so far, is You
having a bubble?
 (bubble bath = laugh)
7. Favourite sweet/chocolate
M&S Percy Pigs. I am a veggie, so it is great they do gelatine
free πŸ™‚
8. What would your pub be called?
Ooh, I really don’t know. Erm, maybe Helen’s Bar, or
Littlehelsb, The Place To Be. Too cheesy! Erm, I really can’t think. Sorry lame
9. No. 1 British person
Dame Helen Mirren. She’s such a classy, British lady.
10. Favourite shop/restaurant
Shop = Boots – I literally lose hours in there! Restaurant = I like small independent places, rather than
chains, but one of my favourite foods is pizza, so for a chain, I will say
Pizza Express. 
11. What British song pops into your head?
Ben Howard, Only Love. Only because it has just been on
the radio, so it is in my head still πŸ™‚
12. Marmite
I am not sure! I have only tried it once (a few months ago).
I didn’t dislike it, so I think I will have to buy a tub and then I can truly
That’s the end of that tag! It is a really fun tag. I now
tag all of you to do it. 

Has anyone got any cool tags I can try?

    Mash is good but my favourite part of a roast dinner are roast potatoes, I could eat a whole mound of them, they are amazing!
