Here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you (as I did above).
2. Mention the rules.
3. Tell 6 things about yourself.
4. Tag 6 other bloggers by linking to them.
5. Go to each person's blog and leave them a comment to let them know they've been tagged.
Right, here are six things. They are randomly plucked from my head at 9.30 on a Monday evening.
1. I love, love, love to drive. I only learnt a few years ago and it is like a curtain has been lifted on a world of excitement and challenge. Ok, not when I am in the shopping queue on a Saturday but the rest of the time.
2. Last year I considered becoming a black cab driver, imagining myself on the road, my own boss, London opening up before me. (I even got the application form) Then I thought about it a bit and decided maybe not. Especially because of number 3.
3. I have a terrible memory. It really annoys me that I can watch a great film or read an amazing book and not be able to recall the details. I can remember how it made me feel and general impressions but that is it. Why? ('The Knowledge' would have been a challenge)
4. I don't have children but I do have cats. I have to actively stop myself talking about my cats when other people are talking about their children. Oh dear!
5. I love staying at home and almost never want to go out. However, when I do, I invariably find myself having a good time. I must be a pain to live with!
6. One of my favourite artists is Picasso. I could stare at his work for ever. It is often so deceptively simple. The man was a genius! (Has that been said before?!)
Here are my six taggees-
Candace at Eyecandy
Shell at Swan of Dreamers
Liz at Tidbits from Liz
Clare who is a Morbid Miss
Jaybean at Justbeans
Laume at Laume's Studio
It was hard to pick-will they mind? Will they be happy? Will I annoy anyone I didn't tag? Lighten up I say to myself! I have tagged lovely friendly people who you should visit if you can!Do you see my memory? How sieve like it is? As Nigel Tufnell on Spinal Tap claims about his lurid green x-ray t-shirt-it is a true representation. My Picasso tribute. It looks almost exactly like the real one but, sadly, is not worth millions.The man himself and my favourite quote, by which I live my life-'If you know exactly what you are going to do, what is the point of doing it?'One of my 'children'-look you see, she is going to learn to read in a minute.
The other one. Appreciating the corner.
