Eight Answers

On browsing the blogosphere and all my favourtie blogs I came across Kate of Fox's Lane and her 8 questions. I have just had my birthday analysed and 8 is my life path number. I am not sure what that entails exactly other than the number 8 plays a large part in my life. Then 8 questions popped up and I thought why not. I am not sure who will ever read the answers as I am a newbie to blogging and as of yet have no followers but what the heck, who knows what I might find out about myself along the way.
Here goes....

  1. Favourite Meal to Eat: Any kind of fish, or the perfectly cooked corned beef with mashed potatoes, peas and sweet baby carrots. I know the second option is boring and fuddy-duddy ish, but I think it is yum - probably due to the fact that I dont get to cook it at home as hubby doesn't like it.
  2. Do you have a quirky eccentricity? According to my family I do. I am obsessed with using the correct knife for things. ie a cake is cut with a cake knife not a carving knife and you do not butter bread with a serrated knife. Because of this I have 2 knife blocks on my bench with the top row of knives dedicated to specific purposes and the lower row is for general utility knives.
  3. My middle name is: Jane.  Plain and simple but it works well with so many other names that my eldest daughter has it too.
  4. I am passionate about: being yourself. I hate it when people change who they are to 'fit in' with the supposed correct people.
  5. Thongs or Birkenstocks?: Both. Although the birkenstocks are starting to take over and the thongs are being relegated to the beach/ pool trips etc.
  6. Who was I before I had kids?: A compter programmer, trainer and technician. I was responsible for installing computer systems, providing support ( both technichal and software) and training on all aspects of use etc. I now never want to fix another computer or solve anyone's software problems. I am happy to use one and play dumb when it stops working and ask hubby to fix it for me. He got his bug for learning everything  and I mean everything there is about IT and computers from me bringing work home when we first met.
  7. Have I ever been arrested?: No. My police check would be boring and empty.
  8. This weekend I will: be visiting the Sisters Market on Saturday and then on Sunday be at the Mornington Racecourse Market selling my wares ( hoping that the rain stays away) and then enjoying the Monday Holdiay. ( thanks Queenie).
Well there we are - 8 things about me that most people who know me would probably be able to answer most but not all the questions.

Now off to do some sewing for the weekend ...........

Loved reading about you via Kate (I also answered Kate's 8). And you can never, ever, ever have too much corned beef in your life! We have it pretty regularly here - with mashed potato, pumpkin, cauliflower, broccoli, peas and parsely white sauce. Yum, yum.

i enjoyed reading about you. i'm sorry but i have to side with hubby on the corned beef issue. too many childhood scars. i'm a bit fussy about judicious use of metal kitchen implement too. or any piece of kitchen equipment for that matter. good luck with the markets at the weekend
