I’ve been tagged by Mary Jane ! The rules are that I have to write a post listing 6 weird things about me that you don’t already know. Well, some of you will, those that know me in real life. I then have to tag six more people and they have to do the same. Here goes:
:: Before I go to sleep I have to put Vaseline on my lips and Vicks Vaporub under my nose. Now how romantic is that!?!
:: I used to be the singer in a punk rock band called The Bang Lassies. We supported Ten Pole Tudor and Public Image. Rock ‘n’ Roll!!
:: I am and always have been (since leaving home) Ms Neatness. Everything has a place and HAS to be in it’s place. My workroom is always immaculate otherwise I am unable to work.
I’ve figured out the reason for my tidiness – as a student and then when I started out in acting, I lived in some really small places and if one thing was out of place then the whole flat looked a complete mess so I learnt to keep everything neat and tidy. I even cook neatly!
:: Sometimes when I walk into a stately building, a castle or a significant home, I am overcome by a sense of what and who has gone before me. I am only able to whisper for fear of disturbing the awe inspiring atmosphere. The places where this has been most overwhelming is Osborne House, home of Queen Victoria, and Monk’s House and Charleston Farmhouse where Virginia Woolf spent much of her time.

:: I’m not really a fussy eater, although I could quite happily never have meat again, but I REALLY dislike dark chocolate and cream. Whipped, single, double, condensed, it doesn’t matter, they all taste awful to me.
:: I get more of a kick buying something secondhand than something new. I love knowing that each item has a history and was no doubt loved before me, especially in the case of vintage clothing and furniture. The only thing I will buy new are books. I love to sniff them!
As we’re the same age with birthdays just a few days apart I’d be really interested to hear Carol’s weird things. I bet they’re weirder than mine!! I’d also like to tag Louise : Kelly (although she’s moving house so I’ll understand if this doesn’t appear at the top of her list!!) : Jo : Gena : and Miss Twiss.
Until next time…
