WOOLLIE AND WANDERINGS

I've been tagged (a couple of times actually) by Kate and Barry for the 8 random things about me and by Uschi for this, which I think more than covers the 8 random things about me:


WHAT WERE YOU DOING 10 YEARS AGO?
Living in Dundee (as now), not knitting (used to be addicted to cross stitch till I discovered knitting), spending time with family and friends and working!

WHAT WERE YOU DOING 1 YEAR AGO?
Living in Dundee, knitting (addicted to it by then), spending time with family and friends, working and running!

FIVE SNACKS YOU ENJOY:
Grapes, Chocolate, Raspberries, Raw Carrots, Liquorice Allsorts

FIVE SONGS YOU KNOW ALL THE LYRICS TO:
I have a really bad memory for songs so I doubt that there is one beyond Baa Baa Black Sheep or Ten Green Bottles that I know all the words too!

FIVE THINGS YOU WOULD DO IF YOU WERE A MILLIONAIRE
Go on a gap year travelling the world, volunteer more with the National Trust, work part-time, send my parents on the holiday of a lifetime - oh and I might let my brother go to and learn a new craft - like willow baskets or painting

FIVE BAD HABITS
Eating too much chocolate, talking too much, getting changed to go out running and then not going, staying up too late, drinking coke!

FIVE THINGS YOU LIKE DOING
Travelling, conservation volunteering, swimming outdoors (not something that happens often in Scotland as you can imagine), spending time with good friends and family and sleeping (which I never seem to get enough of)!

FIVE THINGS YOU WOULD NEVER WEAR AGAIN
Skin tight jeans, a bridesmaid's dress - I've got 5 in my wardrobe, very short shorts, anything from the eighties - once was enough, tap shoes

FIVE FAVOURITE TOYS
My MacBook, my digital camera, my octopus (it's a childhood thing), my gardening gloves, my knitting

Wow - at least that gave me something to blog about!

As for woollie - I have finished my WIP from the last blog and here's another little snippet! I've started my second in a series now!! It's taken my mind off knitting which is good as I seemed to be in a bit of a knitting slump and am finding it difficult to get excited about any pattern - does this ever happen to anyone else?



WANDERINGS

I am off wandering this weekend - to see friends in Worcester - back soon!!

Hey! I used to get changed to go out running (when I was a mad jogger) and then chicken out and not go....so many times. Oh yeah! And I've got two bridesmaids dresses in my wardrobe, too. But I managed to wear them both after the weddings at least one more time for black tie occasions. The brides kindly let me choose the dresses. Of course, they're just good for hand-me-downs now, as I can't squeeze in them anymore.

Hope you enjoy Worcester, I have been there quite a few times visiting friends of my husband. I seem to remember a bar called The Green Man or something...

Uschi said...

Heehee, as for chocolate: I've visited the scale this morning....
I should go wandering with you! I love it!
Have a great weekend!
