10 things you didn't know about me

Whoo hoo. I've been tagged! Thank you to Melksham Mum for tagging me in this meme.

Most of you will hardly know me at all, being rather new to this blogging lark, so I could just tell you some really basic facts, rub my hands together and bask in the glory (glory? really?) of another completed post.

But I somehow suspect that isn't exactly entering into the spirit of things. Instead I give you the most obscure and interesting (I hope) facts about me.

  1. I lived in Warsaw, Poland for 4 years. I moved there for work, had to learn the language (soooo many consonants) and moved home in 1999. It was an experience.
  2. I have an MBA but no degree. I studied part-time whilst living in Poland and finally got my masters in 2004. 
  3. I know how to hand-stitch a button hole. Not that I would suggest you do it. Waaaaay to many other interesting things to do.
  4. I use Waitrose Bottom Butter as my own emergency skin salve. Genius in a tub and smells delicious.
  5. I have a very large and sad collection of 80's compilation CDs. Nuff said.
  6. I love frozen peas. Yep, straight from the freezer. (And so does my daughter).
  7. I can roll my tongue into a tube. (And so can the Big One).
  8. My girl heroes are Davina McCall, Claudia Winkleman and Kirstie Allsopp. Funny, pretty and genuine (in a TV personality kind of way).
  9. I hate housework with a passion that would be put to better use saving tigers from extinction (for instance).
  10. I want to write a novel. I have several ideas but haven't yet made enough time to do anything about them. Watch this space.
Still awake? Well done!

Thank you Melksham Mum for tagging me and now I am duty bound to tag 5 more people. (Sorry if you have already done it :-)



  1. I would love to get my hands on you CDs! I too can do the tongue roll!
    I secretly like your girl heroes but sorry I had a sarcastic pop at Kirstie on Twitter earlier - eek!
    Tell me when your novel is completed x

  2. I knew it! (#10) Didn't know about Poland though! Did my 10 things a couple of weeks back - I'll tweet it to you


Oooh, I do like a good comment :-)
