This is meme

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:

  1. lip balm
  2. mobile phone
  3. keys
  4. a clean hankie

4 things that are in my bedroom:

  1. a whole lotta mess – I am very, very untidy
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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:

  1. Get married
  2. Buy my own home
  3. Travel into space and look back to earth
  4. 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:

  1. 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!
  2. Caveman and I met through internet dating! 
  3. I think about everything very deeply.  I think it’s a good quality but others don’t
  4. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. where the universe stops beyond the stars and what there is beyond that!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
