7 Facts Award

The lovely cb at thecitybirdsnest has bestowed an award on me, thanks sweetie...

So here we go...

1,  I’m adopted
I was adopted at 6 weeks old.  My Mum and Dad are my Mum and Dad, no question, and people often don’t believe me if I tell them I’m adopted.

2.  I sleep with my knees up
This is something I’ve done since being very little, I seem to remember it was because I was afraid some monster would chop them off (how ghoulish).

3.  I have a photo of a horse on my bedside table
Until hubby & I bought our first house in 1996 I always had a pony or horse of my own (& I miss them).

4.  I have all 8 grades and bronze, silver & gold medals in the ‘speaking of verse and prose’ from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA)

5.  I’m (very slowly) learning Japanese
After going to Tokyo & finding it very difficult to find something I could eat, I decided to try to learn Japanese before we (hopefully) go back.  Rice crackers only get you so far :)

6.  I’d love to turn my crafting into a business
...but am scared at the thought of all the business side of things.

7.  I used to fly planes
My Dad treated me to a lesson for my 16th birthday, then more lessons when I was 17/18, but eventually I gave it up – for 2 reasons – it made me very sick on our stalling lesson (sooo not fun feeling the plane plunging to earth), but mainly EVERY (and I mean EVERY) time I went up, we’d get to our altitude and my door would fly open! Seriously, someone was trying to tell me something!

Right, so passing this on to the following ladies:
