Ok here are the seven things you dont know about me, although there are loads more

1. When I was 2 I ate a bottle of junior aspirin and nearly died. It was touch and go, and then they told my parents I may be left with a blood disorder akin to haemophilia. Thankfully I did not die, and my blood is healthy. (I am an O too, Craig - good old warriors)

2. I used to be a Tupperware Lady. I ran great parties, with raffles, games and give aways. "Now ladies, who has peas rolling around in the bottom of your freezer - I have just the thing to cure that ..." It was a laugh and I was damn good.

3. I can ride. I used to be pony mad as a girl but ponies and poverty dont mix so I waited till I was 35 to learn. I dont do it as much as I used to but its nice to know I can still put a horse through its paces. I got trampled while riding bareback and that put me off a bit. I still love to canter down a beach.

4. I got the best O level results in Staffordshire when I was at school. They presented me with a big shiny shield on Speech Day.

5. I have been a Sunday School Teacher. I used to get the kids up and doing things like throw blue tack at a picture of Goliath's head that I had pinned right at the top of the wall. Or full scale attacks on the city of Ai (tower of chairs) or annointing Jacob's pillow with olive oil.

6.I was a Director of a limited company. Went from not being able to turn on a computer to understanding and selling the intricacies/benefits of search engine optimisation in a very short space of time.

7. I am a direct decendent of Madame D'Arblay - Frances Burney. My Grandmothers maiden name is Burney. Writing is in the blood!

8. Couldn't resist. My Great Uncle played violin in the Manchester Philharmonic Orchestra. I too play violin (and piano)

So there you go, you know all the unusual stuff - Therapist, Witch, Saggitarian, tarot reader, reiki healer. Unusual is the Norm. So hope those Normal things will come as a surprise.

It's funny reading these tags, wondering what I'm going to put on mine (as I've done loads of these in the past, didn't think I had much more to say) but you reminded me of other one for me. Ta!

I used to be a cello player, but i had an completely awful teacher in school (good teacher actually, awful person) who made me choose between cello and friends, and fun... Ok, awful teacher. Oh, she was so melodramatic about everything. But,I still love the instrument. One day, if I ever have the extra money, I shall get another. C:)

So interesting! You sound like you would have been a perfect Sunday school teacher. Tupperware lady too, lol, both of those came as a surprise to me.

Vi: These Tags are great - it gives a snap shot, a taste - a buffet version of the main course. Look forward to reading yours.

Craig: The cello is gorgeous, go for it. As for the teacher - she sounds bitter, such a shame she was able to influence. Where was she when the child psychology module was being taught.

dj: I was a bit of a cool one - sunday school teacher and tupperware lady. It all seems so long ago. Wow how things have changed
