...last week by Driftwood and was told to name 8 random facts about me. Blimey, I'm not sure anyone really wants to know (coz I'm not very exciting!) but here goes.....
1:: I am incredibly shy, and have proper big panics whenever I have to meet someone new or go somewhere new
2:: Warren (that's my husband!) and I got married (in Las Vegas) 4 months after our first meeting, and I was pregnant with Grace 2 months after that. I'm a quick worker, I knew he was the one, so why wait around?! We've now been married for 9 years, and time has pretty much flown by.
3:: My mum tells me I didn't wear clothes until I was about 7...apart from in public (I can remember turning up to Infant School without socks and my mum being told off once). Any excuse to strip off and I was there. (I am a little better now...honest)
4:: I'm not a very reliable tooth fairy. I always thought I'd be fabulous, and make special little pouches for the coins......in reality I forget every single time Grace's tooth falls out...and blame the weather, or how busy she was, or that she had a party to go to, and couldn't get all her work done in time. I end up having to give double money for the disappointment (which makes it all better)
5:: I have a completely irrational dislike/fear of swimming pool water, and the areas around the pools that are wet. It all stems from when I had really badly infected eczema on my hands and feet, and the dermatologist told me if I was to take Leo to his weekly water babies session I was likely to end up in hospital on a drip (see 6) as the bugs that live in swimming pools are evil and will kill you. She was a bit of a scare mongerer I see now in hindsight, but it has given me the willies ever since!!!
6:: I have an even bigger irrational fear of needles.
When I was pregnant with Leo I had obstetric cholestasis (SP?) and had to have regular blood tests to check my liver count. When I was pregnant with Grace I was aneamic, and had to have regular blood tests to check my haemoglobin. I wimper when I have any kind of injection, like a pathetic little puppy. And every single time the nurse says the same thing 'if you hate needles so much why do you have such a...'
7:: ....large tattoo?' Because I have a big (well, I say it's medium size, but people without tattoos tend to think it's pretty huge) tattoo on my upper arm. And then another one on my belly, and a little tiny one on my wrist. And I don't think I've stopped yet.
8:: in my head I can sing like Mariah Carey and dance like Michael Jackson. Well, probably a bit better than both of them actually.
So those are the 8 random facts about me. Any one else fancy sharing some random facts? Go on.....you know you want to!!!
