Honest scrap!

I was tagged by Michelle from My Life on the XYZ List. The rules are as follows:

  • Link back to the person that sent you the award. See above :)
  • Display the picture
  • Tell 10 things about myself
  • Pass the award on to 7 more lovely people!

So here are ten things you might not know about me!

  1. I'm fighting a coke addiction. Diet coke, actually. I thought I had beaten it, but it's caught up on me again.
  2. I don't normally read much chick lit, but I have read Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy about fifteen times and am slightly obsessed with it.
  3. I am incapable of drawing with charcoal without somehow getting it ALL over my face.
  4. I learned to knit when I was about 8, but after a gap of about 17 years I had to teach myself again from scratch when I decided to knit Richard a scarf for his birthday. The scarf was too long, too wide and full of holes, but he loved it and to this day still wears it all through the winter.
  5. I wish I lived in Spain. Probably AndalucĂ­a. When (not if) I win the lottery, I'm moving there immediately.
  6. For years I thought I hated pineapple, parsnips and turnip. I was wrong about all of them. I'm trying to change my mind about olives next.
  7. I have three sewing machines and one serger. One of the sewing machines was bought purely because it was pretty.
  8. I want to be a calligrapher. Like as a job. But first I have to get much better at it.
  9. I'm a complete grammar nazi. I just can't cope with stray apostrophes and misplaced commas. I'm notorious for it at work.
  10. I cycle to and from work and class every day (unless it's raining very heavily) and every single day I shout abuse at the idiots who walk straight out into the road without looking and almost cause an accident. Grrr!
I'm supposed to pass this on to seven people but I'm thinking I'm too nosy to limit it to only seven, so if you're reading this consider yourself tagged! And if you post ten things about you, be sure and leave me a comment so I can read them.

Oh and here's a bonus thing about me that I didn't add to the list: It's 5:50am and I've been awake for ages. I'm not happy about this and will probably sulk for the rest of the day. Insomnia is not nice.

Hi, you've been tagged by me! It took me ages, so no worries if you want to declare feignites! And I've just seen you've just been tagged with something else too!* gx

*we used to say this with crossed fingers to avoid being tagged in games of 'it' or chase - not sure how widespread its use is nowadays!

Ooh - now I've read this does it mean I'm tagged also!
I'll have to think long and hard about 10 things.

I feel for you with your insomnia. I have a whole range of do's and don'ts before "beeboes" to make sure I can get off to sleep, remain asleep and don' have EMW. Alcohol def doesn't help. Hope it sorts itself out soon.

Thanks for the comment on me 'umble vase!

I love that you bought a sewing machine purely because it was pretty. I completely understand.
Spain, eh? You made me want to go back.

Nice to see you back. As for olives...... Well, I used to hate them too. Then I went to Paxos on holiday and decided that I would eat one each day. By the end of two weeks, I was eating all my friends' olives as well and now I love them like you love diet coke!

You're right about that. Insomnia that is. As for addictions, mine are, diet coke, chocolate and movies. (I have already posted my honest scrap.)
