8 random things

I've been tagged by Harriet Devine and so am compelled to provide you with 8 random things about myself. Hmm. And for those of you I'm about to tag when I'm done... these are the rules as posted by Turning Pages

1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.


Have just realised that I have been tagged before for 10 things about me so now have to come up with another 10 - eek.

1. I now have more letters after my name than I do in my name, but still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
2. My favourite colour is red - that deep bloody crimson colour you get when you cut yourself - the colour of claret.
3. I once had a job as a giant teddy bear in Regent Street for Sock Shop - I lasted 2 hours and only squashed one small child.
4. I want to live in a massive house with a library (don't we all!) with - you guessed it - stables. This has been my dream since childhood.
5. I studied Goju Ryu karate until I was 17, did weight training, cycling, running and ice-skating. I was superfit. Suffice to say I am not anymore.
6. I have given up smoking 3 times with the longest stint lasting 18 weeks. The most recent attempt was 2 weeks ago - and I intend to be successful this time!
7. I, er, want to be a writer...
8. I'm adopted.

Right... so tagging Nichola, liz, jj, and that's it - pass it on cos I'll be here all day otherwise!

Loved this.
I came via the pin on my map that said you lived in the Norh West. If you live anywhere near Manchester and fancy a launch on June 14th - I'll be posting about it in the next few days. Let me know or email me x

(and JJ is coming! Yay!)

I'd love to come to your launch only I have to work on that day - oh why does it have to be a weekday?! And I'll miss jj too! What a bummer. Trying to work out if I can get to Manchester and back before my afternoon class starts... keep me notified as to what's happening!

It is on 7pm-9pm - I'll email an invite asap.
