I have been tagged.........

by Lindsay to tell you six interesting/unusual things about myself.........as I am the most boring person around, this is going to be hard work.

1. You all know I am British, however I HATE Christmas Cake, Mince Pies and Plum Pudding, basically everything with dried fruit, i.e. currants, sultanas and raisins. Apparently when I was young I ate a few too many mince pies and made myself sick, and have never touched those things again. I am lucky in the fact that dh and both kids also hate the same things!!!

2. I hate flying, actually that isn't true, I don't actually hate flying, my body hates flying and I get terrible travel sickness. It was just plain miserable both on the way there and back from Britain earlier in the year.

3. I used to be quite sporty and was in both the field hockey and the netball teams at school.

4. My dream is to own a house in the country on an acre of land.

5. I have a sweet tooth, and can't get enough of milk chocolate, despite the fact that it gives me migraines.

6. I ran a home baking business out of our home for a while in Britain. I hand wrote and hand delivered flyers to all the homes in our town of around 2,000 people. I was popular with the older people who only wanted 1/2 dozen cupcakes/sponge buns, or smaller quantities of items.

So I am supposed to tag other people, but am hopeless at this sort of thing. So if you are reading this post, then you are tagged!!!! Hard luck.....lol

I only came to have a look at a recipe and I've got tagged! I'm very boring I'll have to have a long hard think for six interesting things.

Yes, little toddlers, I forget the exact age can't handle dried fruit. Yes, I was feeding it to them until I wised up.

The last time I fly to Sydney from Albury the way there I felt awful then I had a tablet and the way back was much better. I suffered from car sickness when I was little.

I can't live, well I can, without my goodies for Christmas and always order a Christmas hamper with those things in it.

Oh crumbs Gill, if you've struggled with this you have no idea how hard I'll find it. Mrs Boring!

Gill: I'm so sorry to have to tell you this but on behalf of the British Government, nay, the Queen, I am going to have to revoke your status as a British Woman.
Not liking Christmas cake, Christmas pud or mince pies is considered Treason and is actually grounds for being locked up in the Tower.
Off with your head.

You and I have a lot in common, I don't really like those things you mentioned either, but love chocolate though it doesn't love me and gives me migraines too. Fun post to find out a few more things about your likes and dislikes.

I only popped in because have been away awhile and have been trying to catch up. Have already been tagged by Lindsay. Will have trouble finding 6 interesting things to tell all, no hope of 12.

But its fun finding out interesting facts about fellow bloggers. Great idea and great to read your list Gill.
