7 things about me!

Michelle over at Mummy from the heart and Gemma over at Hello it’s Gemma have tagged me to share 7 things you didn’t know about me.

Afterwards, i’m to tag 15 others to share theirs, sort of like a giant “chain letter”, so to speak, this has been hugely popular and i’m running out of folk to tag, so, i’m just going to tag 5 in the hope no one has beaten me to it.


Here goes.

1  I can’t drive. I have tried to learn on 2 different occasions, once when i was 17, only had a few lessons, didn’t like it and once about 9 years ago now, i bottled it on my test after nearly running an old lady over. There is a lot of pressure on me at the moment from my darling OH to try again, i may or may not!

2 I am a big scaredy cat, I’m scared of spiders, snakes, water and heights, i did however stroke a tarantula once at a kids party, ran out of the room screaming when he fetched the snake out!

3 I have 5 boys and only 1 little girl, i wanted a girl from the beginning but had to wait untill baby no5 to get my wish!

4 I am the eldest of 4, i have 2 sisters and a brother

5 I am trying to give up smoking, today has been my first day, i’ve only smoked 7 instead of my usual 20

6 I have a huge collection of Dean Koontz books taking pride of place on my bookshelf, absolutely love him.

7 I have a huge collection of horror DVD’s but can’t watch them because since having my babies, ive turned into above mentioned scaredy cat.

So, there you go, i bet you are so glad you looked, haha.

Over to you lovely lot now

  1. great list, thanks for taking part and well done with the smoking. How’s it going? Driving is over rated!

  2. I love Dean Koonz too, his books can be pretty scary at times! Have you read any Jonathan Kellerman? – he is fab also.

    Thanks for playing along, Mich x

  4. Hi, I thought I’d pop back over and have a read of your blog. How is the giving up smoking thing going? I have a top tip for you (if you liked my Smartie incentive scheme you’ll love this). I used to smoke but then when I decided I wanted to have kids I chucked it. I struck a deal with my boyfriend that I would ‘save’ the money that I would have spent on cigarettes and at the end of every month I could spend it on whatever I wanted, no questions asked, no moaning if I came home with ‘another’ handbag. It got me through the difficult moments (and shut him up as well! Bonus!)

    • Hi there, i’m afraid it’s not going well at all, i have absolutely no will power whatsoever, i tried saving the money but it just went on bills:(
      I am definitely going to try again though but may go to my GP for a bit of help.
      Thanks for asking hun x

  5. Don’t beat yourself up too much about the smoking. I hope your GP can be a help to you. I too have no will power and it took me years to get down to 5 a day. Good luck with it though hun x
