Now that we’re getting into January a bit, I thought we’d take today as a chance for you all to Get To Know Me a bit! And what better way to do this than to answer 30 questions all about me?


I spent what seemed to be forever browsing through the internet for a tag that I could answer, but when I found these questions on Root Report I decided they’d do the job perfectly instead. Of course, you can all go and read my About  page here on the blog, but sometimes it’s fun to know a little more about the person writing the blog.


Shall we take a look at the questions and answers then?

    Not really. My Granny’s name is Catherine and she gets Kate for short, but I wasn’t actually named after her.

    I love badminton but never really play it. It was always my favourite at school. Isn’t it funny that cats often choose us not the other way round?!

  • ktkinnes

    I really only played it at school but then my mum found a tennis and badminton summer club where it was just go and play and have fun rather than coaching and I loved it!

    And yes! I mean, we couldn’t imagine life without her now, but it is quite strange. Especially considering we had a dog at the time too!

  • ktkinnes

    Haha yeah it was a history and politics trip for those of us in upper and lower sixth, so we went to New York, Philadelphia and DC! Loved every minute of it! Thank you so much for commenting 💖 xx

  • rachaelstray

    Aw that’s cool I’m going to look into clubs like that for this summer now we’ve moved House.

  • ktkinnes

    Aw thank you! It is a rather strange one to think about! I suppose I would like to think I’m a good person to be friends with, but I don’t think I’d make friends with myself!

  • Lisa's Notebook

    I love reading these kind of posts, it’s so interesting to find out more about the blogger behind the blog. And I can relate to Maisy, that’s exactly what happened with our third cat, Ginger, he tried to move in with us for THREE years before we eventually gave up and formally adopted him! X

    Hahaha oh wow that’s dedication from Ginger! Rachel gave in to Maisie after only a week of her sticking around and we were glad she did – Maisie was roughly 4-5 months old at the time! Thanks for the comment Lisa!

  • Benjamin Biddulph

    I was wondering why I would call you a friend, but if you think you are strange then that’s probably why we fit haha. Benjamin is a fantastic name for a boy 😉
