Bet you didn’t know that.
Neither did I, but that’s what comedian Mark Watson decided when he came to have a snoop round my home recently. Star of stand-up comedy, Mark Watson Kicks Off, and Mock the week, Mark was invited by Money Supermarket to have a guess at my personality, based on what he found in my home. The theory was that we insure our most important belongings, not just for their financial worth, but because of what they mean to us personally.
A team arrived to video Mark’s cogitations, and rather like Through the Keyhole, I stifled giggles from the other room, listening in to his thought process as he made his way round my kitchen. Here’s what he decided about me:
As well as these humorous observations, Mark rightly guessed that the things in my home that mean the most to me are those connected to my children, and to my blogging achievements. My awards stand next to my desk, alongside a giant hashtag given to me by my husband; and framed quotes stand on the window ledge to remind me of how cute and funny my children were when they were little. It’s quite possible that – though they have no real financial value – I would grab them on my way to call the fire brigade.
What would your household contents say about you?
