Ten Things.....


I've been tagged by Becky for 10 things about me.

Well, after much scratching of head, here they are:-

1. I've had numerous nicknames ranging including Chubby Cheeks (from my dear brothers), Kit Kat, Kitten, Kittoff to Flowerpot.

2. Husband also has lots of nicknames.

3. Both my parents are from good Cornish families but I was born in London.

4. I'm a late starter. I didn't decide what I wanted to do until I was 40.

5. I didn't marry till I was 41.

6. I sold my first short story when I was 33; my first article when I was 40.

7. My Dad was called John; one of my brothers is Jonathan and I married a Jonathan. Come to think of it, I've had several boyfriends called John along the years, as well.

8. If I get stressed or upset, I have trouble sleeping. And eating for that matter.

9. My father died when I was in my early 20s and my husband is old enough to be my father. Shrinks would LOVE that one.....

10. And last but not least, I am teaching Moll to swim. Actually, she can swim but she is actually coming swimming with me now. Go, girl!

Oh, you are so lucky you're by the sea. It's scorching here.

Interesting 10 things! Love your nicknames!

Akelamalu said...

any name that begins with John seems to feature large in your life! ;)

Becky said...

Ar, still thinking what good fun it would be to have a dog, that you can take them swimming ! Alas, we will stay cats only
here :-(
Good to see your list Sue :-)

Chris Stovell said...

Guess what? One of my nicknames is KitKat too!

Colette McCormick said...

My son John was named after his grandfather (my dad) not my husband, there's a lot of them about.
Great facts.

Talli - I have to say at the moment I count myself very lucky in living by the sea.

Flowerpot said...

Ak - yes, me and Johns!

Becky - dogs are great fun and great company. But cats are good too.

Chris - I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!!

Flowerpot said...

Colette - they are, aren't they? Just like weeds (or common as horseshit as my husband says)...

Flowerpot said...

Heather - how lovely to meet you! Yes I think we have a lot in common. Good luck on the course. perhaps we should do a walk some day?

Grumps loves to swim, but only with me, and only in a very warm pool. He found out the hard way, by jumping in to get to me, poor him.

Flowerpot said...

Debs - poor Grumps!

Liane Spicer said...

Interesting randoms, FP. My father, brother and (ex)husband are all Russells. I've also thought the shrinks would love to analyze me!

Flowerpot said...

Liane - I'm glad I'm not the only one!
