Eleven Things You Didn't Know About Me

Wynn Anne of Wynn Anne's Meanderings challenged me to write eleven facts about myself.
  1. I love stationery and have enough notebooks to last me until about 2017.
  2. I am a nervous traveller and die a thousand deaths before I've even left home.
  3. I'm done with flying -- not because I'm scared. It's just such a banal experience. It should be marvellous and glamorous and magical like it was in the old days, and it's just not. I hate the humiliating security checks; and being crammed into a too-small seat; and the horrible food; and the way the movie gets stopped suddenly before it's finished; and the way duty free pretends to be something more than shopping to alleviate boredom.
  4. My husband and children have died a thousand times apiece in my terrified imagination. When I wake in the night the first thing I do is check that everyone within reach is still breathing.
  5. Writing is better than prescription drugs.
  6. I have a terribly sweet tooth.
  7. I used to enjoy crafts like embroidery and paper cutting but now I don't.
  8. I miss my old single life from time to time -- particularly when other people talk about having hangovers.
  9. I am too impatient to watch videos or listen to audio -- just write it down and let me read it.
  10. Today is my 1010th day of breastfeeding.
  11. I can't always tell left from right.
I also have to nominate three other blogs -- but I don't really read any at the moment because it's early baby days; I skim Godfather Timothy's Heropress for reports from my gaming crew and I dip into Miriam's Daily Adventures


  1. Oh, so I wont ever see you in Australia? :( never mind, we will have to catch up next time i'm in Kent - quite possibly next year!

    1. I don't know -- I don't mind boats and buses and trains :-)

      Ohh, do give me a shout if you come to Kent: it's 3BT's tenth anniversary in 2014 and I want to do lots of celebrating.

  2. So your next trip to Vegas is out then too? Guess I'll have to come to you someday.

    1. I would secretly love to come and drop a load of money in a casino and admire the vulgarity of it all. I'd also love to come and see the desert, visit some desert gardens and enjoy the dry heat. The flying thing is difficult, but not insurmountable. I do reserve the right to change my mind!

  3. I can TOTALLY relate to number four. (And that, along with number 2) is why my avatar is Piglet.)
