About Me: A-Z
Monday, August 29, 2011
I saw this on another person’s blog (thanks Amanda!) so here’s mine!
A. Age-40 - oh my goodness... that’s scary! 40 is the new 30, right?
B. Books- Love all sorts of books, I like biographies as well as fiction. Right now I’m reading an English chic lit book by Fiona Walker... easy reading for the bus to and from work. Next up is Tina Fey’s biography borrowed from the library! I’m also a member of the library’s book club.
C. Chore-Hate them! Seem to be constantly tidying up after my 2 kids AND Mark! I hate cleaning!
D. Dog- Yes please.... but we haven’t got one. Had lots as a child... Irish setters, border collie, bloodhound, and a few rescue centre mixtures. Would love to get a pair of choc labs but it’s not practical as we’re out too much.
E. Essentials-Credit card ;o)
F. Favorite color-Purple
G. Games- I love our Wii. Especially after a few drinks with friends over!
H. Hometown- Born in Cornwall, England but home is now North Vancouver, BC. But we (my partner and girls) also lived in Sydney, Australia so that’s kind of home too...
I. Indulgences- Skinny Cow Chocolate truffle bars... and wine... and Greek food, Japanese... Indian... mmm... too many!
J. Job- IT consultant... boring but it pays the bills...
K. Kids- 2 girls aged 2 (nearly 3) and 4. Hard work but wouldn’t be without them.
L. Living arrangements- Partner Mark and our girls. No pets :o(
M. Music- Love lots of different bands... trying to find good running music – Some Pink songs work well. Also love Elvis Impersonators! Always good fun, never had a bad night out when Elvis is in the building! I went to a Depeche Mode gig in 2005 which I loved... but seen lots of bands that I love...
N. Number of siblings- 1 brother... we fight a lot but are currently getting on OK.
O. Oranges or apples- Apples.
P. Phobias- No really bad phobias.. get scared around wasps and don’t like spiders in Australia!
Q. Quote- I love that “Dance Like Nobody is Watching...” quote... I have it on a coffee mug at home.
R. Reason to smile- My kids – most of the time!
S. Season- I love them all, I don’t really have a favourite.
U. Unknown fact about me- I have a letter from the Queen (well, a lady in waiting).
V. Veggie-I love lots of different veggies...
W. Worst habit- getting an idea in my head and not thinking it through... oh, and internet shopping... Keep me away from online book shops!
X. X ray- I’ve had lots... mostly on my knee after I broke the fib and tib, and then fractured them again a couple more times afterwards. Also broke my ankle and wrist – too many!
Y. Yummy food – Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle bars!! I like a good curry (pref the ones from England or Australia), Japanese... all sorts really.
Z. Zodiac- Aquarius
