I’ve been working my way through all the other blogs taking part in Blogtoberfest and came across several taking part in this ‘meme’, so I just had to jump on board! It has originated from ChunkyChooky who has set up a page to add your link to.
Here goes more stuff about me than I probably ever intended to share on this site:
4 things that I always carry:
- lip balm
- mobile phone
- a clean hankie
4 things that are in my bedroom:
- a whole lotta mess – I am very, very untidy
- A painted wooden owl that I bought the first week I moved to Oxfordshire when I first left Scotland. I only had £10 to last the week and I spent £5 on him and have never regretted it
- 2 pictures: one is a poster that advertised a photography exhibition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1993 called The Waking Dream, the other a canvas of a Roy Lichtenstein painting called Drowning Girl that has the words ‘I don’t care! I’d rather sink than call Brad for help’ I never tire of looking at either of these
- Several large piles of books, including lots of crochet and knitting ones
4 things that I would like to do but haven’t done… yet:
- Get married
- Buy my own home
- Travel into space and look back to earth
- Drive an HGV. I have wanted to since I saw Long Distance Clara in Pigeon Street (my family sometimes even called me Clara as a result!)
4 things that you don’t know about me:
- I never drink alcohol. I used to, socially and for pleasure, but now I just don’t see the point. I also have a real issue with people being drunk!
- Caveman and I met through internet dating!
- I think about everything very deeply. I think it’s a good quality but others don’t
- I have a funny combination of qualifications including a degree in Clothing and Textiles, a Foundation Degree in Community Governance and City and Guilds in Floristry.
4 things I often wonder:
- what all my Grandparents were like. I only ever had one Grandmother alive since I was born and she passed away 6 years ago. I would loved to have known all my Grandparents.
- where the universe stops beyond the stars and what there is beyond that!
- what it would have been like living through the First and / or Second World Wars. I am fascinated by the first half of the last century and find myself drawn to it in many ways.
- What my life would have been like if I had stayed in Scotland all those years ago when I took a job in Oxfordshire and moved away.
