A few weeks ago, I was invited by lovely Mummy Here And Thereto take part in the 10 Things About Me tag.
Well, if I’m honest it was harder than I thought(honest!) but here it is. 10 things about me that you probably don’t know before.
1/ I can easily *and often do* scoff a duo of Chocolate Éclairs between getting the weekly shopping from the supermarket to home. I’m not a fan of mass, supermarket shopping but with children it has to be done, so this is my treat to myself. #Addicted !
2/ I love bacon & marmalade sandwiches, served on seeded bread. Lush!
3/ The first proper music concert I went to was The Kids From Fame at the Birmingham, NEC. Bloody brilliant & so 80s!
4/ Whilst staying in Portmeirion, Wales, the film location for The Prisoner, I saw Bucks Fizz in concert. Least said about that experience the better…
5/ I once went on a solo five-day trip to New York. Every evening I’d head to a rooftop terrace bar and write my diary whilst enjoying a cocktail. Travelling alone is a strange but liberating experience!
6/ I hate mornings. I’m so not a morning person.
7/ I once worked for the British Cheese Board. Eating & talking about British cheeses for a living was possibly my perfect job!
8/ I was a dancer on stage for ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ – an american TV show on MTV. Twice. Oh, the folly of Youth!
9/ I employed a Private Midwife to support me through the birth of both children. It was the best decision I every made and money well spent. Which is why I’m so supportive of the Save the Independent Midwife campaign. *As I have you here, would you like to find out more and sign the petition here?*
10/ I have been skinny dipping. More than once. But I don’t like swimming.
I’m not going to nominate anyone for the tag here, but if you fancy doing it go ahead & let me know!
Also, do tell me in comments below if you’ve done all or none of the above. It’ll be good to know I’m not alone!
I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
