Sophie Who Eats Snails!





Hi! I am Sophie. 

When trying to think up a fun way to introduce myself, Mum suggested writing this post like an interview. So after going around and getting a few questions from everyone in my family, I set about answering them. Some questions were really hard, but I managed it in the end!


Facts about me:

Name: Sophie

Age: 12

Place in the family: second youngest of eight, fourth of five girls.

If you were a sound, what would it be and why

I'd be a laugh because I can’t stop laughing. If something funny is said, you can be sure I will laughing. I love jokes and quotes. 

If you were a colour, what would it be and why

I'd be red. It seems such a fun colour. It is one of my favourite colours. I love red flowers, red sharpies and red earrings.

If you could be a book character, which one would you be and why

I'd be Betony from The Divide. She leads such an exciting life and doesn’t seem to care how different she is from all other elves. I am different as well. I look different being darker than everyone else in my family. 

What would your perfect day be like

My perfect day would be a day at home with plenty of time to read, write and doodle.

What is your favourite outfit: 

It's a denim skirt and pink T shirt. They are nice and comfy. I like casual clothes better than being dressed up and I love skirts a lot more than pants. You won't catch me dead in jeans. On special days I like the flowery dress Mum made me best though. It is about knee length and has two buttons on the shoulder.

What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten: 

I have eaten snails! When I was little I used to eat snails out of their shells. I found them in the garden. I still get teased about it! I don't mind being teased and I can't sulk for too long, however hard I try. (I don't eat snails any more!)

What is your favourite kind of shoes: 

I like wearing ballet flats or sneakers. Something comfy because I get sore feet easily.

What kind of music would you be: 

I'd be something exciting, like the How to Train Your Dragon soundtrack. I am always having heaps of fun and I usually have a huge grin all over my face.


Here's one of my doodles:

  2. I love your post Sophie! I used to try to wear heeled shoes, but, like you, I got sore feet very easily and now I just wear ballet flats everywhere. Maybe its an Elvis trait?

    I remember you were always so pretty as a baby in red! You looked like a little Red Riding Hood baby. Gemma-Rose looked best in pale pink, but you suited bright colours very well!

    Love you so much!

  3. Wow! What a marvelous doodle! I love the idea so much (of making an initial out of drawings) that I hope you don't mind if I suggest such an idea to my oldest granddaughter, who'd love it.

    Wow! Snails?!?!?!? Right out of the garden?! Oh. My.

    Wow! To be a laugh! You must be such a fun person to be around... and I can tell you definitely are!

    Wow! I love this post. I love this new blog!!!!
