25 Things About Me

I was tagged to do this a while back, but prevaricated somewhat. Captain Black has put me to shame - so ....


1. When I was a child I felt ‘different’ from everyone else

2. I once ended up in A & E for two separate accidents on the same day

3. At the age of 7 I had a reading age of 14 and was thought by head teacher to be gifted (huh!!)

4. Accelerating me a year did me no good at all, because

5. I failed my eleven plus

6. I suffered from alopecia between the ages of 11 and 21 but refused to wear a wig

7. Rob and I were owner/occupiers at the age of 18 with a hefty mortgage (£46 a month)

8. I was pregnant from October 1979 until May 1982 (well - nearly all the time!)

9. I have taken part in international medical trials

10. I don’t like driving – it scares me

11. I am cross-coordinated (right-handed, left-footed, left-eyed) and don't know left from right

12. I used to be able to read music, but now I’ve forgotten

13. It is 222 steps from my office to the library

14. I used to wear glasses but my eyes got better with advancing years!

15. I can ride a horse and even galloped once without falling off

16. I like thunderstorms, big waves and wild weather

17. Sometimes I pretend to be stupid when really I know the answer (why I ask myself?)

18. I have eight grey hairs in my head, which I pluck out :-)

19. My best friend is a man

20. I can’t see the point in being secretive

21. I hate conflict and arguments – anything to keep the peace, I say

22. My head is full of useless information, untold stories and unanswered questions

23. I liked being a housewife when my children were small

24. I enjoy my job, but

25. I WANNABE A WRITER

(Gawd knows what a psychiatrist would make of that lot!)

And number 18...you are lucky! I have too many to mention.

I can identify with #6, mine started saying goodbye at about 25.

I know a book that might help with #25...

Debs said...

I am the same as you with #11, although the opposite way round.

Very interesting 25. Now, come sit on my couch and tell me more. Look into my eyes Ms Annieye and repeat after me "I'm a writer" ;-) TFx

These are all fascinating. What a good insight into your life.

Lane said...

So many things we didn't know.

I wish No 11 was the same for me and I find myself doing No17 too. Why?:-)

And No25? YOU ARE!

Really interesting :o) I wish my eyesight would improve with age!! And that I only had 8 grey hairs...

I am new to reading your blog and it is very interesting. I too wish to be a writer! And the same goes for numbers 1, 22 and 25! :)
