7 Little Known Facts

Maya of Million Little Stitches has tagged me for this meme.

The rules are:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK now for the seven random or weird facts about myself:

1. I collect used tea bags - why I started - I have no idea - think it's because they are so pretty when dry !

2. I collect aluminium drinks cans - preferably John Smith's Extra Smooth Draft - it's a lovely weight of aluminium but I DO NOT DRINK THE STUFF!!! I anneal the cans and then add them to my collection ready for another metal work project to come to mind - nothing much for a while now!

3. I am scared of heights - I have a three storey house and cannot look down out of the windows - looking straight out is just about OK. I have even covered the banisters so I can't see down.

4. If I had to choose between a large block of cheese or a bar of chocolate - the cheese wins every time.

5. I used to lighten my hair with lemon juice then I dyed it a deep red/black (which glowed in the sun light) now I want to dye my hair purple - proper purple like this..... but I am too scared. Perhaps at my age it's too late? Maybe dye it for charity and keep it that way?? What would a new employer say? Oh for a new employer !!

6. I love/hate being alone - I very rarely go out and feel 'safe' at home. I am very shy, have a severe lack of confidence when going out on a social occasion (even works Christmas do's) but get me into a show like Creative Stitches as an exhibitor/demonstrator and I am a different person - I can talk to strangers all day, every day with no problem.

7. Finally I hate these tagging things - (I'm sorry Maya) - I hate them for two reasons i) I find it difficult to come up with answers and ii) I feel 'afraid' to tag others. It's like chain letters at school,or those emails that you have to pass on or something dreadful will happen. I always broke the chain - maybe that's why things are rubbish at the moment.

There done, now the tricky part choosing 7 more participants - NO can't do that sorry. If you are reading this ramble then take it that you are tagged.

Enjoyed reading your facts and can very much relate to many of them.
3 Heights - not as bad as you but I wrote about an encounter with heights a couple of blags back.
4 I would eat both.
5 love that purple but I am a red/ginger head so no go for me.
6 I relate to this very much in every way.
7 Hate tagging so won't join in with them but enjoyed reading yours.
I follow your blog but this is the first time I have commented.

Wow! I could have written 4-5-6 and 7 MYSELF!
4 - (luv luv luv cheese!)
5 - (I actually had an appt for the color and canceled - hubby cant understand why his 40 yr old wife and mother of 4 wants purple hair and I let that "get" to me. We should make a pact together! lol)
6 - (I'm much happier being totally alone)
7 - (I, too, was tagged, and hated it, but it IS enjoyable learning everyone's little random facts.)
Thanks for sharing!

well done on responding to the tag Anna. Very interesting about looking out of your windows at the top... Thankfully I'm ok if there is a barrier of some sort in front of me. Do go for the purple - it would look fantastic on your long hair... and very much so very cool for an "older" person. I hope you do it :D

p.s. I hate tags too :)


Oh my Anna, sorry for putting you on the spot with this meme, but you are so eloquent and such a sport for playing along. I think you need to get your hair dyed purple,go for it.
