I did give a moment’s thought to summing up the past three years in terms of their huge events – of which there are many. Then I thought “nah, we’ve had enough of all the funerals, weddings, jobs, pregnancies and so on. Time for a little levity”.
So I decided to share some little-known facts about the key players in my blog.
The Panther of News was once a professional nutter, he put the walnuts on top of the whips.
I wanted to be a choreographer when I grew up (amusing if you’ve seen me dance).
Boy One would have been Bellatrix if he was a girl.
I once broke a bone in my hand doing a parachute jump.
Boy Two was nearly called Rafferty.
My first car was a banana yellow Ford Fiesta.
Boy Three would have been called Seamus if PoN had his way.
I’ve lived on a boat at least twice.
I did a coursetry fitting training course.
I can do mirror writing.
I have variously learned (not very well) to play the piano, the guitar, the violin, the French horn, map reading, first aid and Spanish.
I like Gilbert and Sullivan but not horror movies.
Mushrooms are my favourite vegetables.
Our family traditions include Fish and Chip Friday, Eggy Bread Saturday and Pancake Sunday.
Finaly, I’ve never, ever seen one of those magic eye pictures – in fact, I’m sure they’re a big joke and don’t actually reveal anything but some coloured dots.
