I’ve been tagged by Missie Lizzie over at Me and My Shadow and Michelle at Mummy from the heart to share 7 things you didn’t know about me. Here are 7 things you didn’t know about me, it’s a mixture of odd facts and little stories:
I’ve know my oldest friend since I was 3. We became friends at Nursery school and are still friends.
I was once a Best Woman at a Wedding. The couple in question have been married 18 years last December – I knew it would last.
Several years ago, I was driving along a lane in North Wales at dusk. The lane was narrow and the trees on either side met across the top of the road, I had dipped head lights on. From nowhere an owl swooped down, it must have been dazzled by the lights of the car and I hit it. I was horrified. I went straight to a friends house, burst into the living room and out tumbled what I’d done. A friend went back up the road collected the dead owl, it was a baby tawny owl. He stuck it in his freezer, later had it stuffed and it now sits on a perch in his living room. I’ve stroked it on many occasions, I hope the owl and I have come to an understanding about the accident.
When I was about 22 I was PA to the Head of Taxation at a large Blue Chip company in central London. It fell upon me to organize the Christmas Sherry Party. Various individuals from the Finance and Taxation Department were invited. I have to say they were mostly middle aged men in grey suits, they came to talk about the last financial year over a glass of sherry. It started at 11 am, and so did I. By 3 o’clock I was so drunk I had sung “I wish it could be Christmas everyday” and showed everyone my knickers.
I passed my cycling proficiency test on the second attempt.
I was lucky enough to witness the total Eclipse in August 1999, I was in Cornwall on The Lizard which was one of the few places where the cloud cleared and the whole eclipse was visible. In the afternoon me and my best friend swam off Lizard Point, naked, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I have a CSE in Spanish, ungraded. Hola.
