Throwback Thursday #4

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday number #4 is all about Lisa from Pass The Prosecco Please!

Think back to when you were a teenager and answer these questions!

  1. What was your favorite band?
    I was a complete boyband lover, and 911 were my absolute favourites.  I went and watched them live age 14 and climbed a telegraph pole so I could wave at them. Oh, the shame!
  2. What was your favorite movie?
    I wasn’t a huge movie person as a teenager, but it was the era of teen-slasher movies like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Blair Witch Project, so I watched plenty of those.  Armageddon was a huge one as a teen.
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into? (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc)
    Emo wasn’t really a thing when I was a teen, everyone seemed to either be a Goth, Chav or Boff(nerd).  I didn’t really fit into any of them, I was more a hippy-geek, with my plaited bunches, embroidered jeans and Shaun the Sheep backpack.
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    I told a huge fib about how I wasn’t scared of needles and how I’d had an operation and they didn’t phase me, and then when I went for my BCG I sat in the chair and promptly did a runner as soon as the bird pulled the needle out.  When they caught me about a mile away I was dragged back and then I fainted as soon as she jabbed me.  I never lived that one down.  I also dislocated my shoulder and had to be carried half way round the cross-country route by my Welsh PE teacher, like a full fireman-carry.  I was so embarrassed.
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    Yes, I let myself be bullied and taken the p*ss out of constantly.  I was bullied badly and so painfully shy I let people treat me like sh*t and take the mick constantly.  It was an unhappy time for me, I wish it could have been so different.
  6. What was favorite drink?
    Irn Bru, it was the best.
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Not at all, I was ‘sad’, as above I was just one of the hangers on that was a bit of a target for bullies.
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    Byker Grove and Knightmare, they were the best!
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    A vet or a teacher.  As it goes I get way too emotional about animals and I don’t like children(apart from my own) so neither was going to happen!
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    I don’t have any photos of me as a teenager, they are all in a box at my mums!

Lisa, you sound like you were the cutest teenager! I must see a picture of these plaited bunches with your shanu the sheep bag! Sorry to hear you were bullied though, what a horrible thing to go through!

I hope you all enjoyed number #4 on the Throwback Thursday fun!

Throwback Thursday #1

Throwback Thursday

I thought I would start something new for a bit of fun on my blog! I hope you enjoy and if you want to get featured leave a comment and I will get the questions sent out to you! =]

First up is Cheryl from mummyof5miracles.com

Think back to when you were a teenager and answer these questions!

  1. What was your favourite band?
    I was full blown into cheesy pop ( who doesn’t love a bit of cheese!) So I would say Steps, I loved their dance moves, I’m loving the fact they’re back and with the dances to learn!
  2. What was your favourite movie?
    Clueless ! No idea why I just loved it, I think its cuz she was everything that I never have been and never will be! Haha
  3. What stereotype would you say you fitted into?
    (Emo,Chav,nerd..etc) Ermm I really wasn’t one…. If I had to put myself into a catergory it would probably be Girl-next-door with a tiny touch of little shit.
  4. Tell us a funny story about something that happened!
    My bestfriend and I were quite frankly a bit nuts, we both had older boyfriends with cars ( we were at school! For the record Ellie my darling almost that age daughter its not big nor clever and they just break your heart 😉 ) Anyway back to the story , We went out in the cars I can’t remember where we went but we were drinking thunderbirds ( me and the bestie not the lads driving) , My mate threw the bottle up in the air and it landed on one of the bonnets and dented it, as you can imagine they weren’t thrilled but we found it hilarious!
  5. Is there anything you regret that you did back then?
    Not ignoring the bullies and concentrating on myself instead. Due to being bullied I never wanted to go to school and this in turn meant I slipped from a grade A student to just scraping by. I should have kept my head down, who knows where I would be now if I had.
  6. What was favourite drink?
    Alcoholic or Soft? Alcoholic was something girly like Reef, although I had been known to drink white lightening ( ewww) Soft drink would be Lilt
  7. Did you think you were cool?
    Not even a tiny bit cool! I was a bit of an inbetweener. I wasn’t a geek but I wasn’t a cool kid either I was just there.
  8. Is there any T.V show you watched that you wish they still showed?
    There was a programme on cbbc that nobody else seems to remember but it was called The Biz and was all about a stage school with a rather hot looking Paul Nicholls in it.
  9. What did you want to do when you grew up?
    I wanted to be an entertainer in holiday parks, I wanted to be on stage and for people to love being around me. I did that job too! For a few years and loved it. I loved it even more after a careers advisor told me it was very unlikely I would get the job and I should probably go for a ‘real’ job
  10. Share a picture of you then and now!
    I’ve attached 2 pictures, the one in the black and red top on the first pic is me, the one on the right is me on the more recent pic. Unfortunately we aren’t like Ant and Dec so don’t stay on the same side haha. I probably could have found more flattering pics but wanted to show the friendship still there if that makes sense.

www.mummyof5miracles.com is my blog. I blog about anything and everything, it could be about a baby or a teenager, a recipe or health it really depends on what’s going on at the time. I like to think all of my post are either entertaining or relevant to the subject.
