Thanks to my pal Gwen who tagged me recently. No, it's not what you think, I'm not electronically tagged! Gwen was tagged by The Good Woman and all you have to do is reveal eight interesting facts about yourself and then nominate five other bloggers to do the same.
So, my eight facts (I’ll leave it to you to decide if they’re interesting!) are:
I drink coffee and tea at home without sugar yet when I travel a mile and a bit up the road to Charlie’s (who uses the same milk, tea and coffee as I do and has the same “hard” water as me), I have to have one sugar.
I am allergic to tree pollen, not grass pollen. This is why I get my hayfever in the tree pollen season of April, May and September and don’t suffer in July and August when everyone else seems to.
I cannot stand bare feet on carpet. Mine or anyone else’s. I cringe, it makes my teeth itch and I feel sick. It’s the feel, the sensation, the “whispering” noise it makes. Am shuddering as I type. Ditto when drying feet on towels.
I talk to inanimate objects. I say thank you to cash machines, apologise to things when I drop them and feel sorry for my old white, faithful teapot because it’s hardly ever used now since I got my snazzy new see-through one.
When I’m out and about for an evening, I have to know exactly where I’m going, how I’m going to get there, how I’m going to get back and some rough timescales for all this. Wherever possible, I drive on these occasions so I feel “in control” of my destiny.
I cry at almost everything – especially “made for TV dramas”, almost anything on Living TV and all of Mac’s Walt Disney DVD’s.
I can drink as much vodka as you care to give me and I’ll be as sober as a judge, yet one glass of white wine makes me giggle hysterically, fall over and generally look like a moron.
When I was 25, for seven and a half months, I had a headache every Wednesday which was there when I woke up (at whatever time) and went within a couple of hours.
And there you have it! Now, over to my fellow bloggers (like Gwen have asked more than 5!).
I nominate (come on, you know you want to!)
Antarctic House Husband
Landcroft House (both Silvana and Rob please!)
Mutterings and Meanderings
Strife in the North
I look forward to reading all of your interesting facts!
