8 Things you never knew....

Following on from Akelamalu’s meme, here are 8 things about Himself and me:-

1. The year I was born, Himself was a teenager cycling round Holland with a friend.

2. Although neither of us was born in Cornwall, both our families are Cornish.

3. Our first date was on a filmset at the Celtic Village in Chacewater, not from Truro. (This sounds a lot more glamorous than it was but that is another story.)

4. He has a sweet tooth, I don’t.

5. Neither of us can eat chocolate – he gets mouth ulcers, I get completely hyper (well, more so than usual) and usually get a headache for good measure.

6. Both our fathers died in the late 1970s, both of cancer.

7. We both cry at films (though this is because he’s lived with me for too long. I can cry at just about anything).

8. I’ve never met another man I feel so comfortable with. He’s one of the few men I know who will chat on the phone for hours. The length of conversation depends on how much he’s had to drink.

Loved reading the 8 things about you and himself. It's amazing how much you have in common.

So, the more drink, the more conversation I take it!
You two sound like soul-mates!

You two really do sound very much alike. I do love a good love story!

Ak, Nienke and correspondent - we have some things in common but in a lot of things we are total opposites! I suppose that will be the next list!

What a nice meme. Unlike you I don't think I could survive long without chocolate!

Wonderful things you've shared about you and Himself. I like the idea of Himself cycling around Holland, little suspecting that his beloved had just arrived on Planet Earth.

Sally - thanks for dropping by. It took a while to get used to living without chocolate, but I am living proof that the impossible is, occasionally, possible!
