50 facts about me tag

today I thought I would be super duper original and do one of these '50 facts about me' posts- loads of bloggers have done this tag or one similar recently which I've really enjoyed reading as you get to know more about the blogger so I thought I would do one of my own so you can get to know me a bit better (if you don't leave half way through due to boredom...)
