Here are the people I am tagging:
Here are the topics:
What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was doing part-time studies in Business IT at University while working in a Telecomms company as an Office Manager - I was getting fed up of supporting everyone else's career but not getting very far in my own, so I decided to get some formal qualifications in Computing so that I could fly up through that "glass ceiling" and get into the blue sky! I have never regretted it. My DH was a DBF in those days :-) ahh, we knew back then that we would be together always - since about a week after going out together, in fact.
Five snacks you enjoy.
1 - Anything on Toast - Marmite, Baked Beans, Marmalade
2 - Banana Sandwich with brown sugar
3 - Egg salad Sandwich
4 - Cereal and milk
5 - Porridge made with jumbo oats, milk and sprinkle of brown sugar on top!
Five songs to which you know all the lyrics off your head right now.
1 - American Pie - Don McLean
2 - Everybody Hurts - REM
3 - I'm on top of the World - The Carpenters
4 - Killing me Softly - Roberta Flack
5 - Criticize - Alexander O'Neil
Five things you would do if you had one million pounds (that's the currency I operate with!)
1 - Pay off our mortgage
2 - Throw a garden party for my friends
3 - put some away for a rainy day
4 - Give some to Alderhay children's hospital and some to Cancer Research
5 - Buy DH his favourite car (Boxster)
Five bad habits.
The only one which DH can't stand is that I shove all the recycling into one bag and he has to sort it out into the different bins at the Recycle Centre - well, I don't have time for the niceties in life :-)
Five things you like doing:
1 - physical exercise: Yoga, Running, Swimming
2 - music: playing Classical Guitar (less these days while I am studying!)
3 - crafts: cross-stitch, painting, machine sewing, beadcrafts
4 - Reading - books, craft magazines, journals
5 - gardening - I love the outdoor life and watching beautiful things grow and mature
Five things you would never buy, wear or get new again.
1 - really tight jeans - even tho I am slimmer now than when I was in my 20's, I prefer comfort!
2 - Tesco's CD boxes - they use stupid peel-off labels that split and don't peel off :-(
3 - new car - 2nd hand cars are fine!
4 - software manual - too much now available on the web, and software changes too quickly
5 - TV ... this is a contentious issue, DH and I are still not sure if we want one - too much rubbish on TV, not enough time to watch the good bits!
Five favourite toys - some are more like games!
1 - Trivial Pursuits
2 - Boggle (word-game)
3 - Scrabble
4 - My digital camera - its such fun :-)
5 - collection of Harrods teddies (one for each year DH and I have been together)
