I suppose I’ll have to tell you the true story of how I came to complete this Blogger Tag, given that the title is “100 Truths”. Every now and then, I like doing a tagged post. In the past i have done the Christmas Tag, the Daddy Tag and the Rocking Motherhood tag but to name a few so when I came across this one, I saved it in my iPhone notes to do at a later date because I like doing them. I think they are a good way of getting to know a blogger and I enjoy reading others too. The only problem was I hadn’t been tagged it in which defeated the point. Luckily I was Kerry from Blissful Domestication post in the #KCACOLS linky Facebook group and ask if anyone was interested in being tagged. People had replied so I thought I had missed my chance, I commented anyway and the lovely lady offered to tagged me in it too. It’s a sad story isn’t it? Sad as in, you feel sorry for me and how pathetic it is rather than sad – boo hoo.
Anyways, here are my 100 Truths…
1 What’s your name? Rebecca Roversi
2 Any nicknames or aliases? A few: Becky, Becka, Bex, Freckles (my husband), Mummy, Muuuuuuuuummmmmm, Miss (teacher).
3 Your gender? Female
4 Your star sign? Gemini
5 How old are you? 33, my birthday is in June and I share it with my son…meaning that technically I don’t really get a Birthday.
6 Your relationship status? Married
8 Any pets? A Cat called Coco – hates everyone apart from my best mate Keri.
9 Any tattoos or piercings? No piercing but I am fond of a tattoo or two. Mostly random but the odd meaningful one. I’ve got a consultation booked this month to finish my arm off so maybe I’ll do a post on them when it’s done.
10 What do you like about yourself? Physically, I don’t mind my face. Mentally, I like to think I’m a good friend. I’m very loyal.
11 What do you dislike about yourself? Anything from the neck down! However my friend text me after I had given birth to my daughter and said
“I know you’re not necessarily the most body confident or happy in your body always, but you’ve def got one of those bodies that copes so well and so naturally with labour!! It’s amazing!!”
Then another friend on the group responded with
“You and your body know how to birth babies!”
Honestly these comments meant the world to me and did make me like my body a little bit more than I did!
12 Righty or lefty? Righty.
13 The last thing you drank: I’m currently drinking a cup of tea from McDonald’s – something that I have been more obsessed with since my second pregnancy, not it being from McD’s, just tea in general!
14 The last thing you ate: Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin with a hash brown – I actually prefer their breakfasts to their main food.
15 Your last phone call: The life partner last night, I rang to inform her of some information I had acquired and ended up being on to her for two hours. It felt like two minutes and I had a good laughing fit during it so it was successful!
16 Your last text message: My friend RW, discussing holiday club at February Half Term and what day we are putting the boys in.
17 Your last email: Just the usual. I get a few a day from various websites – Amazon, Selfish Mother, Next etc. They try to make me give in to their special offers! I have just been looking at the Selfish Mother sale, dangerous when it’s pay day!
18 The last song you listened to: The Lorraine theme, does that count? I’ve got the telly on this morning.
19 The last book you read: I’m currently in the middle of The Unmumsy Mum’s Diary but I’ve only picked it up once since the new addition arrived.
20 The last time you cried: A couple of weeks ago, given that I’m hormonal with a newborn, I don’t think that’s too bad. Did get a lump in my throat when Ant and Dec got the Bruce Forsyth NTA though – ha ha!
22 The last person you spoke to: Who spoke back to me, my husband to say goodbye as he went to work along with “Don’t forget to empty the bin for me!” Who doesn’t speak back – Spud who responded with the odd gurgle.
23 The last place you visited: Pre-School yesterday to pick up our son.
24 Your last holiday abroad: Lisbon with a group of friends we met on honeymoon. Since we met we’ve had marriages and babies added to the group☺️
HAVE YOU EVER?
25 Have you ever gotten back with an ex? No, that would be a very bad decision!
26 Have you ever been cheated on? I don’t know. Probably, but he’ll never admit it! Gut instinct is usually right however I can’t say I’m overly bothered either way now as my life is good.
27 Have you ever cheated on someone? No, I developed feelings for someone while I was in a relationship so I ended it before starting anything with the new guy. I really feel for those that are cheated on, it must be a horrible experience.
28 Have you ever lost someone special to you? Too many unfortunately. The usual grandparents etc, but also my Dad when I was 17 and my Step Dad when I was in my late 20’s too.
29 Have you ever been so drunk you threw up? Ha ha, surely there aren’t many people that get to the age of 33 who haven’t? Of course I have, most recently was a night out in Leeds when I’d been doing a strict diet of shakes…that plus a bottle of wine is not a good combination! Moments after the photos below were taken, I started being sick and didn’t stop for quite a while!
30 Have you ever fallen out of love with someone? Yes, when I was younger. It’s sad but it happens I guess.
31 Have you ever met someone who changed you? No I haven’t. Not that I think thats a bad thing. I changed after someone and that led me to my husband.
32 Have you ever been in a situation where you found out who your real friends are? Overtime I go through anything stressful/emotional/difficult in my life, I am reminded how amazing my friends are. Genuine, loyal and always there when I need them. I’m very lucky that my three best friends Ive had from school.
33 Have you ever kissed someone you probably shouldn’t have? I don’t think so! Nobody comes to mind!
34 Have you ever found out people were talking about you behind your back? No, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. I’m pretty certain it has but it doesn’t bother me.
35 Have you ever broken someone’s heart? Unfortunately yes, I think so. I split up with someone a long time ago and I know it’s not what they wanted but they are happily married now so that’s lovely.
36 Have you ever kissed a stranger? On nights out, yes. Obviously not anymore!
37 Have you ever had your own heart broken? Yes, karma for number 35 maybe! It changed me for the better and taught me a lot.
38 Have you ever had sex on the first date? Eeeek, yes, but he’s now my husband!
39 Have you ever been arrested? No! I think I’d cry!
40 Have you ever been attracted to someone that isn’t the gender you usually find attractive? Lol, I always say to my life partner, “I fancy you a bit” if she’s wearing something nice. I’ve never been actually attracted to a female but I have girl crushes – females I admire.
41 Have you ever done something you regret? Carrying on with my ex after we had split up…it caused me more heartache where as if i’d cut it off when he finished it, I would have got over him quicker.
42 Have you ever had a threesome? No.
43 Have you ever embarrassed yourself in public? Oh yeah, several times I imagine!
44 Have you ever misjudged someone? Yes, sadly. People I’ve trusted with my feelings or who I thought would never let me or my family down and they have. Sometimes, I guess, you don’t know people as well as you think you do.
YOUR BELIEFS AND OPINIONS
45 Do you believe in God? No, but I can see how people having a belief in him helps them in life.
46 Do you believe in yourself? In some aspects of my life, yes. In others, no. Cryptic eh? Ha ha!
47 Do you believe in Santa Claus? Of course! He’s the magic of Christmas! 😉
48 Do you believe in ghosts? Hmmmm…I like to believe in something after death, it gives me hope and makes death less scary but actual ghosts, I’m not sure!
49 Do you believe in aliens? No.
50 Do you believe in miracles? Yes, to me every rainbow baby or IVF baby are little miracles.
51 Do you believe in the power of positive thinking? Yes, even if things don’t go the way you want. Thinking positively about it will make it have less of an negative impact on your life.
52 Do you believe in love at first sight? No, because I believe that love isn’t just based on looks. You fall in love with personality too.
53 Can money make you happy? It makes life easier but it doesn’t make you happy.
54 Would you describe yourself as a feminist? No, I don’t feel strongly enough about it.
55 Are you pro-life or pro-choice? Probably a little of both. I think it depends on the situation.
56 Do you have strong political beliefs? No, politics confuses me!
57 Do you have strong religious beliefs? No, each to their own.
58 What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is? Love and security.

64 What are you most excited about right now? Oooh a few things! Celebrating my husbands birthday in Whitby in a cottage that means a lot to me, spending Sunday afternoon with my best friends, their partners and kids, a night out in June for my birthday.
65 What’s your pet hate right now? In general, I have a couple of “pet peeves”…1) Leggings as trousers: i get leggings are a staple of everyones wardrobe (particularly Mums) but I believe that should be worn with dresses or tops that cover your bum and foof…a little like tights, 2) Black bras under white tops, 3) People who were bras with strapless or halter neck clothes…strapless bras were created for a reason!
66 What’s your favourite thing right now? My Lion King mug – my husband bought me it for Christmas and it’s nice and big. I am requesting a new Disney mug each birthday and Christmas so I can build a collection.
67 If you weren’t answering these questions, what would you be doing right now? Scrolling Instagram and watching TV.
69 Your first kiss: A boy at school, it was awkward and not very exciting.
70 Your first celebrity crush: First? He still is my celebrity crush! Mr Robbie Williams.
71 Your first holiday: I don’t actually know. I’d have to ask my Mum! Probably Filey or Whitby.
72 Your first pet: When I was young we had a cat called Woodstock. He got into a fight and arrived home with his eye hanging out (vom) so we had to have him put to sleep. My first pet that was actually mine was a Rabbit called Lucy….who got sunstroke and died after a week – I don’t sound like I have much luck with animals but we’ve had lots others that have been great. My husband and I’s first pet was a guinea pig called Harry who lasted his life span (thankfully!) and was very cool.
73 Your first regret: Probably when I was very young and I regretted something trivial!
74 Your first job: Sales assistant at WHSmiths in Wakefield which I did for two years and had lots of fun!
75: Your first childhood memory: Sadly, one of my earliest memories is when my mum and dad split up and I was sat in the living room with a creme egg whilst my Mum, Dad, Nana, and possibly someone else were discussing things.
