The lovely Suzy over at Identiy Crisis has challenged me with a MEME.

Apparently the rules of the game are:

A). Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog...
B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself...
C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs...
D). Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So seven facts about me:-

1 Random statistics - I am 42 years old, have been married 3 times and have 5 children by 3 different fathers. I have had 3 miscarriages and 1 termination. I have been on television 3 times and have had 2 newspaper articles published. I am 3 stone overweight.
2 I am vain – I dye my hair (and there’s you all thinking I am a natural blonde!) , have regular manicures, wax – everywhere(!), I wash, blow dry and straighten my hair every day. I wear make up everyday I am at work. I like luxury fabrics like cashmere and silk.
3 I am totally quixotic. Sometimes my house is a show house, other times it’s a complete tip. At work sometimes I work like a demon and other times I coast, just getting by. Sometimes I post to my blog a couple of times a week, then not for ages (think the longest is a month).
4 I am generally easy going and being a balanced Libran, see all sides of an argument. That said, if you get me on one of my pet subjects – breast feeding or abortion, I become the most opinionated person out.
5 I cry at films, books, listening to other people’s troubles, songs, children’s play etc, etc. Basically I cry at the drop of a hat. My mum says it’s because I have the strong empathy gene from her family that makes all the women brilliant nurturers. And if my mum says that’s why, it’s good enough for me.
6 Generally I prefer to eat my pudding/sweet/dessert with a fork. Have no idea why but cake, pie and the like seem to taste better that way.
7 I am a life-long vegetarian and never eat meat, poultry or fish. That said, all my children love meat, poultry and fish – makes for some interesting meal times in our house! I can confess here that last week when my daughter was eating some pork, I really bit my tongue to stop myself from telling her she was eating Peppa Pig!!!!

Now, I have recently passed on one of these and I am reluctant to “make” people take part. Therefore, if you happen on my blog and fancy having a go, please do and let me know so I can have a nosy……

I love when you post about yourself. You're so honest, it's quite refreshing.

So breastfeeding - for or against? I am adamantly for and nursed one of my children (that middle one) far, far too long.

Suzy, I am honoured. Keep me updated xx

Hey Nicola. No, I believe in being upfront and all my colourful experiences, be they good, bad or indifferent) have certainly made me who I am today.

Morning Tina, look forward to more from you........

Thank you so much Kaycie, I believe in honesty and for all some of my experiences have been challenging to say the least, I have always learned from them. As for the breastfeeding I am very, very PRO. Get very angry at those silly women who say I can't or their baby wasn't getting enough. Perhaps I should so a post about this....... Indeed I will. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
