- mutterings & musings about my adventures into the world of knitting and all things woolly!

My lovely friend, Cheryl, just tagged me in a thinly veiled effort to get me blogging again so here goes!

The Rules - Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.Since I don't do this very often, here goes:

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was living in London with my two very best friends 20 minutes outside London and having a ball! I was working at Great Ormond Street Hospital which I loved and was also right in the centre of London so socialising after work was a lot of fun. I was also dating my aerobics instructor...need I say more?!

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

Take Pickle for her very first visit to the dentist (that should be fun, not!)
Pick up Jomp's Fathers Day Present from Pickle (more on that after Fathers Day)
Put a ton of clean clothes away (I always leave it til we have nothing left to wear!)
Have some tickle time with Pickle (Thursdays together after 3 days at work/Nursery are fab!)Catch up with letters/bills/emails (This is on my to-do list everyday!)

3. Snacks I enjoy:

Banana's - as long as they are just on the yellow side of green, I hate them if they're too soft
Cadbury's Fruit & Nut - the bigger the better
Cheese & Onion crisps - all varieties except the really cheap ones

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:

Have at least 5 more babies! Still, at 35, I'd have to be pretty quick!

I've always said if I won the lottery I'd like to own a bookshop. It would be full of very old leather 1st editions that smell just like old books should. It would be stocked from floor to ceiling with books stacked higgledy piggledy all over the place. On one wall there would be a huge open fire, always burning whatever the season, surrounded by lots of old leather wing backed chairs. My customers would be my friends and there would be free fresh coffee whatever the hour. Of course, being a billionaire, it wouldn't matter if I never sold a single book!

5. Places I have lived:Not very interesting:

Lancing, Shoreham, Surbiton, Kingston-Upon-Thames, New Malden, Worthing

So, let's see, who shall I tag??
1. Vikki
2. Lucy
3. Fiona
4. Charlie
5. Claire

It's taken me ages to think of these answers and to find people who haven't already done this meme. Right, I'm off to let you all know you've been tagged!
