Get to know me even more.......

Linda at "Are we there yet?" tagged me for a Wikepedia meme but I did that a little while ago so I've pinched the "10 things you don't know about me" meme instead.

So here goes....

1. I passed my driving test first time but not until I was 38.

2. I have only ever driven on the motorway twice in my life, and one of those was by mistake - I got in the wrong lane where the road was coned off and didn't have any choice! You will have guessed by now I don't "DO" motorways.

3. I am very good at knitting. I don't knit so much these days but at one time all the family were kitted out with my creations. I even knitted a full length coat once - that was a bit of a mistake though because it turned out to be really heavy!

4. I have medals for tap dancing when I was a child. Shuffle, hop, step, shuffle, hop, step. See I can remember the steps even if I can't do them now.

5. I have pierced ears - nothing else just ears.

6. I have a tattoo of an orchid on my right shoulder. I had always wanted a tattoo so I bought myself one for for 45th birthday.

7. I can touch type 80 words per minute, this makes typing up my drivel very easy. :)

8. I can hang wallpaper. My Dad was a decorator and taught me from being very young.

9. I am a blood donor.

10. I have been on television. I cheated with this one cos you may already know if you read my post 'My Claims to Fame', but I couldn't think of another thing I might not have told you, well not that I could put in print anyway!

As I wasn't exactly tagged for this I'm not going to tag anyone else but please feel free to do it yourself if the mood takes you.

Feeling better today I think the extra exercise helped.

Learning to drive was the best thing I ever did - you go for it!

Rhea said...

I'm impressed. I've always wanted to type faster. And hang wallpaper correctly.

Thanks honey - on both counts. :)

Josh said...

You are a very interesting person!

Queenie said...

Why haven't you told me these things before.. there is so much more to you than you have let me know. Have you a swimming stickiefoot???

Akelamalu said...

Josh
Thanks. :)

Queenie
I'm sure I have at some point in the past 17 years!
What's a swimming stickiefoot and have you got one?

CG said...

Great to learn more about you. I'm impressed; wish I could type!!

Queenie said...

Yes, three actually. One for breast stroke (don't start), one for front crawl (stop it), and life- saving, I got full marks for my mouth to mouth resuscitating, hee hee!!!!

I could type faster than that at one time, I'm just out of practice at the moment.

I passed my driving test age 17, that was almost 23 years ago, then did it all again with a motorbike test 13 years ago. Regularly drive on the motorway but is necessity rather than a love of it, I much prefer to walk everywhere these days..
Nice to know a bit more about you..

Welcome, whoever you are.
I've never been on a motorbike, I must admit they frighten me, but not as much as motorways!!
