The lovely Jules over at Just Jules was kind enough to pass this award along and ask us to present seven random facts about ourselves... we then have to pass it on to some other worthy bloggers... so here we go.... are you sitting comfortably? then I'll begin..........
Random 1..... I am very afraid of moths... it doesn't matter the size or the shape, don't like any of them this has, over the years, manifested into not liking anything that flutters, butterflies, birds, those horrible beetles that open their crustacean little bodies and fly.. all of the above.
Random 2.... I met his Gorgeousness in Spain and had the absolute best first date of my life, had to marry him, knew on the first night I met him I would marry him. I slipped a note into his pocket telling him that it was the very best first date I had ever had.
Random 3......I cannot live without Branston Pickle... wherever in the world I go I am going to have to get hold of some Branston... it's been harder over the last few years due to restrictions on what you can bring into the country but I recently bought some online so that will be it from now on.
Random 4.....I still have a prayer book given to me at my Christening when I was two months old. It always amazes me when I look at it because through all the moves I've made in my life and all the different things that have gotten lost this little white prayer book is still with me.
Random 5.....I played the oboe in high school and was a member of the school band as well as the county orchestra. I secretly still wish I was in a band or a choir it's just so awesome to hear a group of people come together and make wonderful music. The oboe on it's own however sounds like a duck call!!!
Random 6.....I was a bridesmaid for my eldest sister a million years ago and the best man was none other than famous Brit crime writer Ian Rankin. He went to school with my sister and was her husbands best friend. Check out his website.
Random 7.....I have a thing about spotting famous people... when I'm at the airport I am always on the look out, but they're obviously not languishing in coach like me so I'm yet to see anyone. There was a time we spotted a Canadian rock band, can't remember what they were called!! Once on a shopping trip to Edinburgh, we saw the Queen and Prince Philip, Kirk Douglas and Linda Evans all in one day!!! My friend totally cracked me up by shouting out to Kirk D. She was calling out, Kirky Baby, take me home!!! it a very broad Scottish accent. I am seriously plotting a weekend in Tybee Island to see if I can get a look at Miley, Greg and Kelly... really I'm hoping that JT will be with Kelly and when he see's me it's all over...sorry Mr McG.
Hope you liked my seven pieces of randomness, the picture is us on our first date, the note is in my hand!!! ahhh.
