As I have somehow managed to leave most of the stuff I need at home today (Wednesdays are spent in my hubby's workshop), I've decided to write a slightly different blog post today. A while ago, one of those daft things was going around Facebook where you are supposed to comment, then tag your friends to play - I usually ignore them, but this one intrigued me. It simply said to state 10 things that people may not know about you. It was interesting - not so much to do, as obviously I already know these things! - but to read the things other people revealed. So here are a few random things you may not know about me, although some you may, if you've been following my blog and Facebook page for a while.
I took A-level art at school, chose to forgo my place at art college, and barely picked up a pencil for the next 20 years.
I have two stuffed toy seals and a monkey who always come on our holidays ... ;)
I've enjoyed writing fiction since I was a child writing by torchlight under the covers. I've written 3 full-length novels, along with many more finished and unfinished stories - all unpublished.
I've been a vegetarian since I was 21.
I met my hubby (some of you will know him as 'the post boy') nearly 24 years ago, while I was still at school. It took us 12 years (most of those living together) before we decided we'd probably keep each other after all and get married.
I taught myself to touch type when I was 20 - came in handy with all those stories ...
I worked in accounts for 21 years before giving it up to be poor and happy as a jewellery-maker.
Lastly - and this will be the shocker - I'm not a natural redhead. :P
