Tagged - V2

Yep I got tagged again - Sarah over at BlueBoyGifts / TheBalmShoppe has kindly tagged me and has been waiting for my 7 facts very patiently! I'm useless at this sort of thing - I don't think I'm particularly unusual or have strange hobbies and I've had a very normal upbringing with few major upheavals. But anyway, here's the rules

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


Fact 1 - I cry very easily. I have been known to cry at a part of a 30 second advert on TV. I cried when Baloo died in The Jungle Book (OK, I know he didn't now, but at the time I didn't know) and I was 37 when I watched it for the first time.



Fact 2 - I'm a fence sitter - I can see two sides to most stories and can see loads of options when trying to decide on something. This makes decision making very difficult. When we redesigned our garden (all 30x15 feet of it) I had about 20 different plans in my head and had to leave it to hubby to pick his best bits. That's also part of my problem over at Etsy - I just don't know what photos to list!





Fact 3 - I'm a dabbler - six months into a new hobby I just sort of stop doing it and never go back. I've done cross stitch, knitting and ceramics - bought the equipment and still have loads of bits sitting in boxes in the attic. Photography has been the exception - 5 years down the line and I'm still as hooked as ever.


Fact 4 - I'd love to be more adventurous but as I get older, I'm getting way too sensible. I have parascended off a mountain top and I've abseiled down a 7 storey building (for charity) and I love scuba diving but I never made a parachute jump. Unfortunately, I don't think my back would let me now. I fell down stairs 10 years ago and still occasionally suffer with whiplash type pains and sciatica.




Fact 5 - My best selling photos on stock are mushrooms! Yep, a punnet of lowly button mushrooms in various setups are my biggest moneyspinners. They probably cost me 70p ($1.40) and so far they've earned me in excess of £50 ($100) albeit across 6 stock sites. Wish I could luck out like that a bit more often eh?


Fact 6 - I don't watch movies very often and I hate watching a movie more than once or twice. It's the same with books - I just remember the story too well and can't let myself just enjoy it :(
Fact 7 - This has taken me nearly one and a half hours to write 'cos I'm struggling! :) (yes, and #7 is a bit of a cheat but I'm hungry!!)
Now I know I'm supposed to tag 7 more peeps but I'm pretty new at this blogging lark and I don't really know many peeps yet except the Uk Etsy gals and they've all been tagged so if you read this and fancy doing 7 facts about yourself - go ahead and consider yourself tagged! :) Drop me a comment here and I'll come read your facts, I promise.

I love mushrooms. Who would have known that people would be dropping the bucks for a picture of them!
I, too, am a crier. I cry at Hallmark and Kodak commercials, Harry and the Hendersons, Romeo and Juliet, Titanic, City Slickers. I can cry at a drop of a hat!
great facts!

I do number 3 too. I get bored with some craft and try to learn a new one. Art is the only thing I have seriously stuck with.

"I have parascended off a mountain top"
Cool! something I would love to try one day. Shame about your back :/

Ah, I cry at everything! Can't watch a movie and know it's just a movie - my heart breaks when bad things happen in the movies! LOL
