31 day challenge day 2

Standard

20 facts about myself. (Seems I’m off to a late start so will post days 2&3 today – been sneaking a look at fellow challengers!)

  • I learnt to read almost 1,000 characters in Chinese (very interesting!)
  • I make my own natural skin creams – they’re so much better and cheaper too.
  • I love water of all kinds, rivers, lakes, sea, streams, the sound, look and smell.
  • I hate wearing shoes and as a child drove my mom crazy always taking them off.
  • I have an hons. degree in sculpture but worked most of my life as an English teacher.
  • I like to eat healthy but my weakness is chocolate (my secret addiction).
  • I love Italy and speak passable Italian due to an early romance with an incredible Italian boy.
  • I’ve always loved to make things, anything from clothes to furniture.
  • I don’t like cooking and managed to avoid it for a long time (my 2nd husband was an ex cook.)
  • I must be half man as I really don’t like shopping either.
  • Altogether I have 7 grown up children (from two different marriages) who I love to pieces and am incredibly proud of.
  • I’m a quarter gypsy, quarter landed gentry, and half teachers and shop keepers by blood.
  • I’ve witnessed many unexplainable miracles.
  • Another unusual dislike, TV! (Haven’t really watched it for around 50 years – living is much more fun!)
  • All the cells I’ve lost with age tend to be in the memory department (now what was I saying?).
  • I enjoy a good laugh at myself (which is just as well lol!)
  • I love space and light, can’t handle dark, small spaces.
  • I hate lying or deceit in any form (this includes advertising, politics, and hypocrites).
  • I’m a bookworm but one with “special needs”, classics, historical fiction, and non-fiction only please.
  • I’m a lucid dreamer and get a lot of stories that way.

    • You are so kind! I look forward to seeing lots of yours also. I think this will be fun! (I enjoy exploring new blogs I haven’t seen before). Thanks for dropping by and your inspiring comments. I’m still quite new to blogging and IT in general so they were very encouraging.

    • Thanks! I found it was the only way I could retain the language (I had regular lessons for 3 years while living in China which explains it.) It’s very interesting.
