The Boy Behind the Blog

Something a bit different on the blog this week.  In celebration of it being Valentines Day on Saturday,  I'm handing over the reigns of New Girl in Toon to my other half Simon.  

He'll be writing a couple of guest posts later in the week but for now I thought it would be fun to share some facts about the boy behind the blog.

1. Simon does a lot of work behind the scenes on New Girl in Toon - he's photographer and proof reader as well as being a ridiculously patient boyfriend.

2. Simon had never had an afternoon tea before he met me .. I think I created a monster!

3. Simon writes his own blog.  Well he has a blog ... there's just no posts on it!

4. When I'm not dragging him round the countryside on adventures Simon can be found learning computer programming, playing on his Xbox or watching his favourite show Arrow - he's a bit of a geek!

5. As a kid Simon auditioned to be the Milky Bar kid. 

6. Simon used to work at Granada Studios Tour in Manchester and would wander down Coronation Street on his lunch break.

7. Simon used to have every boys dream job - he tested video games whilst eating pizza. 

8. He hates football now but many moons ago Simon was a steward at Old Trafford. 

9. Simon is a walking encyclopaedia of movie soundtracks. He only has to hear a few opening notes to know what a song is and what film it comes from. 

10. Lucky for me Simon seems to love red heads, his celebrity crushes are mostly auburn and his favourite animals are red squirrels and red pandas. 

11. If I let him, Simon would happily live on a diet of Haribo, Jelly Bellies and Dark Chocolate Oranges.

12. Simon and I met through blogging - we were both on weight loss missions and writing Weight Watchers blogs recording our journeys.
