The British Tag - #12 questions

The lovely Charlotte at A much prettier puzzle recently tagged me in the British tag.. 12 questions originally created by Sammi from Beauty Crush all about the best culture in the world - the culture of Great Britain.

 
Here goes..!
 
1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
 
I'm actually not a big fan of tea, and don't normally drink it... if pushed I'd probably say I have one a day, usually in the evening without sugar, although with some chocolate ;-)
 
2. Favourite part of your roast?
 
Definitely the yorkies - is there any other part of a roast?
 
3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
 
Rich tea - the trick's in dunking them for *just* the right amount of time so they don't fall into your mug.
 
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
 
I do seem to talk about the weather a lot.  It improves my day no end to know what the weather's doing, and don't we all love to moan when it rains, when it's too hot, too cold etc?  We never have the 'right' weather in this country!
 
5. Favourite word?
 
Juxtaposition.  Doesn't it sum itself up so well?  It's a lovely word to say too.  I wish I got to use it more (I guess that's a bit sad really!).
 
6. Cockney rhyme slang?
 
I don't know if it's 'proper' cockney rhyming slang, but my husband refers to our kids as the 'bin lids'.  How wrong is that?
 
"Is the bin lids' tea in the oven yet?"
 
7. Favourite sweet?
 
I am totally in love with Willie's Cacao chocolate.  Although it's not strictly a sweet, it is made in Devon from Willie Harcourt-Cooze's Venezuelan cacao beans and I love it.
8. What would your pub be called?
 
This is a really tricky one!  Probably something along the lines of 'The Sleepy Hollow' - because I love to curl up in front of a warm fire in winter and have a nice snooze.
 
9. No.1 British person?
 
This is another tricky one - it depends in what context!  If I had to pick one, I'd probably go for Chris Evans.  Full of life yet with hidden depths, can often be found down the pub and does a pretty good job of getting me out of bed every week day.  I think he's great!
 
10. Favourite shop / Restaurant?
 
My absolute favourite restaurant is the gorgeous and boutique restaurant at Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds.  Before kids, husband and I used to go there... we will return when both ours are old enough to leave with grandparents for the night.
 
11. What British song pops into your head?
 
It's Been a Hard Day's Night by The Beatles.  Our son recently visited Liverpool and saw The Cavern and a statue of John Lennon.  He's been asking about The Beatles since, and for some reason this song has stuck in my head!

12. Marmite?

Of course, what's not to like?!

Next up
