10 things about me

Well I was tagged by Sakura Fubuki from the UK etsy gang so I have to tell you 10 things about me. Hmmm, this could be a challenge!
  1. I helped raise over £7000 for Great Ormond Street by organising and participating in a skydive. I jumped out of a plane at 12,000 feet (or something like that) with a strange man on my back. He knew what he was doing and luckily we landed safely! I screamed most of the way down as I am a wimp. However, after doing that I really can't imagine anything else being as scary so I'm a little braver nowadays.
  2. However, I am terrified of the idea of not being able to breathe. Someone once pretended to throttle me and I totally freaked out. I can't bear the thought of going underwater and scuba diving- I'll snorkel up here on the surface thanks, where the oxygen hangs out. Everyone tells me how wonderful diving is (even my Dad), but nope, aint going to happen.
  3. This is harder than I thought it would be, 10 is a lot! This is a little weird, but I know I'm not the only one, I can't sleep without earplugs. It doesn't matter where I am, the slightest noise will keep me awake.
  4. Oh and I also can't get to sleep if I don't read before hand. My boyfriend gets really annoyed at this one.
  5. When I was little I was scared that if any part of my body was hanging over the side of the bed, a monster would pull me under it and eat me.
  6. Randomness alert: I met Philip Schofield at Jersey zoo when I was a kid- my Mum was very overexcited about the whole thing!
  7. More randomness: I was once in the TV audience for the Vanessa Feltz show.
  8. I once got so drunk that the taxi driver had to ring the doorbell and get my Dad to come and get me out of the car- it was only 10pm. The shame.
  9. I only wear make up to go out in the evening- I can't be bothered the rest of the time.
  10. I have a green Blue Peter badge- I got it for setting up a door-to-door recycling scheme in my village. My poor Mum had to drive me and my friends around collecting bottles and newspapers. We only did it once though!
I won't tag anyone as I'm sure everyone's already done this, but leave me a comment if you want me to read yours too!

Hello! Im browsing blog land after lots of people posted on etsy - Great blog!
I had to post a comment because I was amazed to see you mention Leonora Carrington!! I studied her at uni for a bit. Have loved her work for ages. I NEVER EVER see her mentioned anywhere. So cool to read about her on your blog!!!!

Hi sakura & ditzdesigns- thank you for visiting & commenting.

Hi fellow-earplug-wearing lady- I agree, it was just wrong, she wasn't very nice as she thought it was funny. :(

Oh I should mention that the girl who play-throttled me was trying to scare me out of my hiccups apparently.

You make me laugh! Great 10 things.

I too share you fear of not breathing. I can't stand having anything covering my face and the thought of diving breaks me out in a sweat!
