Tagged again

Bryony tagged me AGES ago but better late than never....

TEN YEARS AGO:

I was at home with 10 day old newborn baby, recovering from a c section, learning how to breastfeed & cope with a tiny person being totally dependent upon me. I had just graduated with a 2:1 & we moved in to our house 3 days before I discovered that I was pregnant.

FIVE YEARS AGO:

Working full time running a Recruitment agency as DH was studying computing @ University. We did a total swap & I was the breadwinner whilst he studied, looked after DD & the house. It was a really stressful time in my life & I missed my DD desperately.

ONE YEAR AGO:

Now working part-time, working locally & trying to sort out the bullying nightmare that my poor DD was enduring at school. Also knitting again as was bored sitting by a pool as she swam with the local swimming team.

FIVE SNACKS:

Chocolate , seseme bread sticks, hummus, Seabrooks Cheese & Onion crisps & avocado on toast with black pepper .

FIVE SONGS I KNOW ALL THE WORDS TO:

'Finally' by Ce Ce Peniston
'Can You Heal Us' by Paul Weller
'Road to Nowhere' by the Talking Heads
'Simon' by Joan Armatrading
'Sunrise' by Norah Jones


FIVE THINGS I WOULD DO WITH $100 MILLION:

Pay off all our debts & that of DH's family (mortgage, student loans, credit cards etc etc etc), donate loads to the Alzheimer’s and Cancer charities, the RSPCA & the NSPCC. Plus if there were any left go on a cruise around Norway.

Not exactly 5 (under or over depending how you count them) but I think I've run out of money


FIVE PLACES TO RUN AWAY TO:

Barcelona - I want to see Gaudi's work
Canada - dream location - I will get there one day
Embleton Bay in Northumberland (my favourite place in England)
a warm island somewhere with a beautiful beach & no stress
my Nana when I was a kid & having a hard time

FIVE THINGS I WOULD NEVER WEAR:

Blue tights
anything orange
cripling high heels (I think I'm tall enough not to)
headscarves
Chav type clothing including clown necklaces

FIVE FAVORITE TV SHOWS:

This one is difficult as I don't watch much TV so I've gone for films instead:

Sliding Doors
The Knights Tale with Heath Ledger (totally horny guy)
Moulin Rouge
Chicago
Shrek 2

FIVE BIGGEST JOYS:

My daughter
my DH when he hugs me (I adore being cuddled)
my pets
Sunday mornings in bed
walking the dogs in the snow

FAVORITE TOYS:

The Internet
my knitting
my new phone
Yahtzee
something else that I can't mention here

PEOPLE TO PASS THIS ON TO:

Andrea

Susoolu

Sanity Knit

Knitty Fred

Seabrooks crisps are COOL!! I love them, although they're hard to find around here! Think i would also have to agree with your five favourite films too - although I'd add P & P to the list! ;-). Getting jealous hearing about all the people who are off to Ally Pally - roll on Harrogate!

Just to let you know that Becca's secret pal has not forgotten her. She is slowly making a few items to finish off the package. It should be in the mail in about a week. - Kayakknitter@yahoo.com
