I got this award from Debs and must now tell you seven things about myself before passing it on to seven other versatile bloggers.
I am a bit of a Heinz 57 mix of ethnicity. I apparently have some Sioux Indian, French Canadian, Black, Scottish, Gypsy and English in me.
Both of my great grandmothers are alleged to have had more than one extra marital affair. That could explain fact number one!
I won the Duke of Edinburgh’s award for sports excellence when I was 12.
I was brought up to believe it is wrong to eat meat from an animal that has had an unhappy life or been killed without regard for it’s value as a giver of life through the loss of it’s own. I was also taught how to raise, kill and prepare animals for food.
I really dislike speaking on the phone, especially answering it. I will go to great lengths to avoid it although I am happy to text or email.
I do not like clocks and will hide mine under the bed when I do not have to work. I do not know why I have a clock in the room anyway as I tend to wake long before I have to get up for work.
Kirkby is my maiden name and I write academically under my married name. No wonder I’m often confused….
