    Favourite Sweet- Smarties. Absolutely love them!! Especially the orange ones. They definitely taste different to the rest.

    First single- Mmmbop by Hanson... I think.

    Favourite movie- Forrest Gump. I adore Tom Hanks :D

    4 people for dinner- Billie Joe Armstrong for a few songs after dinner as I love Green Day, Tom Hanks as he's just a legend, My Granny as I miss her terribly and maybe a good chef to cook...don't know who though! :D

    Favourite place for holidays- in Ireland, Wexford and abroad, Sorrento :)

    My username- I wanted Jellybean as they're one of my favourite sweets but that was taken so I went with Jellybear ;)

    Bread!! 100% I love poppy seed, sesame seed, crispy rolls- any bread with lots of butter mmmmmm. I'm not a cheese fan really! I'll eat cheddar and the shockingly bad babybel and easi singles!!:P

    Favourite way to travel- Car. Purely because it's easy to pack if you're going away, if I drive I can control the temperature and radio :D

    Hero of fiction- Batman. My husband would divorce me if I didn't say that :P

    Recipe- I love to make dinners from scratch like lasagne, cottage pie etc. Easy food- I make a mean omellete ;)

    Last film- I can't remember!! That's terrible isn't it!? I half watched a bit of Zodiac with Jake Gyllenhall in it yesterday evening. I'm not a big movie person unfortunately! Last film in the cinema was Toy Story 4 :D

    Favourite toy- Oooh tough one!! I loved Polly Pockets and had a little village with a pond that I loved.

    Ideal tree- I go for a gold, red, black theme with random bits and pieces thrown in but ideally I'd love to do a rose gold/copper themed one :D

    ETA- I went googling and found the Polly Pocket village. The nostalgia!!!

    What would be your dream job?

    Oooh it's a tough one. I'm a teacher and I love it but would also love to do something with animals. Dogs Trust do workshops for schools where they teach them about responsible dog ownership, approaching dogs safely, cleaning up after your dog etc and something like that could be the perfect mix for me :) I'm not great with change though so don't know if I'd ever be brave enough if the opportunity arose!

    Your favourite part of your Christmas dinner ?!
    And dessert of choice ?

    Oh that's so tough!! I love it all :D I don't have stuffing very often at all so as odd as it may seem, I'll say stuffing! Plus, you can eat it with all the other parts of Christmas dinner so it's a versatile choice!!

    Dessert- I love ice cream sundaes or anything chocolatey. Love chocolate fudge cake!

    In a perfect world would your home be in a wooded mountain setting or by the sea?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,758 ✭✭✭ TRS30


    Snow or beach holiday?

    What would be your perfect day?

    Oh that's so difficult as I love both! I do like peace and quiet and rural areas so think I'll go with a wooded setting...maybe not too many mountains :D

    I'm a real home bird so neither to be honest, unless they're in Ireland! My poor husband would love to go away more but I just love being home....terrible isn't it!? If I had to choose, I'd probably go snow ;)

    Oh and perfect day- a lie on with a Milo, our dog :) Nutella pancakes in our favourite cafe for brunch, a walk in the Phoenix Park on an autumn day, home to the couch to watch crappy tv and then go out to our favourite Italian restaurant for dinner. The rest of the evening spent on the couch watching a feel good movie like Finding Nemo :)

    Great movie choice, one of the favourites in our house.

    My husband and I are big kids!! Love Toy Story, Ice Age, Nemo...there's just something funnier about them when you're an adult! Now we have our son, we'll have even more reason to watch them and even go see them in the cinema without feeling like weirdos :D

    Had to 'borrow' my nephews to watch Frozen in the cinema as none of my mine were born by then :)
