Interesting, no?

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
Drunk Mummy
Dulwich Mum
Landcroft House (both Silvana and Rob please!)
Mutterings and Meanderings
Strife in the North

I look forward to reading all of your interesting facts!

In control- does that mean you're just a little teeny weeny bit anal? If not, just lie, 'twould make me feel better!

What's not to love about Living. Have you been watching the new series of Grey's Anatomy?

mutterings and meanderings said...

Oooh, I've never been tagged before ...

Nunhead Mum of One said...

Kelly, I think I have mild OCD....seriously. I have a thing about keys, I have to know where they are at all times and yes, I suppose you could say anal - but only on some things! Living, Sky Sports, QVC and Boomerang - our most watched Sky channels!

M& have now! Woohoo!!!

Omega Mum said...

I am still working on my list of things - yours v interesting - and am now getting exam nerves in case can't find enough to say....

Kelly said...

I should be so lucky Omega Mum- once I get going I can't stop. And the facts are hardly interesting.....

NMOO- have exactly the same thing with keys. And anything that has a place in the kitchen. Am almost sick if DH puts pickle back on the wrong shelf in the fridge. Mines not a sbig as yours though!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm very pleased to be added onto your list, thanks for that. If I can work out how to set up a link list that works I'll have you on mine too! I just need some advice. Please, anyone, hello, help!
I must say, I can't wait to read your next blog or will it be another? Great to know a fellow 'ghost hunter'. Crystal x

Gwen said...

Loved your facts Nunhead Mum. I can be a bit like you with the timescales thing. I really like to know times etc and feel in control. I am definitely a bit of a control freak. Most of my friends are pretty good at humouring me on it though.

rilly super said...

oh crikey, I shall have to think about that one, not sure there are actually 8 interesting things about me, sigh

Silvana said...

Well I'm identical to you with the night out thing. Nothing gives me the fear more than someone suggesting 'we just play it by ear' .

Can me and Rob do 8 interesting facts between us? please?

Nunhead Mum of One said...

go on then Silvana, as it's you!

All about me

My photo
Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
