ok now on to the hard part of listing 11 things about myself without putting you all to sleep.

1) I wont walk under a ladder, not because I am suppositious but because something might fall on my head

2) I am mildly dyslexic I don't mention this much as its too hard to spell. Its a strange condition that makes you write letters backwards and jumble up words in a sentence more often then everyone else. which is why I like auto correct. (Bloody English language with hidden letters). it also means that I cant tell left from right  I have no idea why. I cant drive either as I once indicated left but turned right making the car behind me rather mad. Don't worry it doesn't  affect me much unless I have to write something down or give directions.

3) I can speak 3 languages French , Spanish and Japanese. I'm am not fluent but I know enough to be polite and order food.

4) I watch paranormal shows of which some are interesting while others scare the life out of me. I can never tell if they are faking this stuff. I watched Paranormal Witness one night when the other half had gone to snooker and I wouldn't go upstairs without turning on all the lights first. I sent the cat up first to check if it was safe.

5) I own two cats Leo and Timmy who like to play me up by scratching my furniture and then running off and hiding when I go to tell them off. Timmy nearly lost one of his lives when he decided to eat my bakers twine. Leo likes to wake me up in the morning by jumping on my head and then purring loudly down my ear if I refuse to move.

6) I am an Ares which means I am playful and stubborn but loyal as well.

7) I was born on a Monday which means I am the first sign in the Zodiac and born on the first day of the week.  spooky

8) My name originates from Ireland and means pure.

9) Snakes and Eels creep me out, I hate that horrible wiggly motion they make when they move.

10) I am allergic to soap based products, don't worry I can still keep clean.

11)  I am a fan of Science Fiction, books, films and shows. I find it interesting how some of the gadgets they use in the older films have become things we use today. like Spock's hand held computer and mobile phones. Still waiting for a transporter and a robot that likes house work.

  1. Thanks so much for accepting this award Katie. I loved reading your answers to my questions and getting to know a little more about you.

  2. enjoyed reading your answers. I like paranormal Witness too, my daughter and I are usually last downstairs and when it's finished it's a dash to see who can get upstairs first and not be the one left downstairs having to switch off the lights and things :D


    1. Lol I am the same. I hate it when I have to go it to the kitchen to let the cat in and its all dark. The ones about the Demons are the worst I literally jump off my seat.

      you can play along if you want to, I am carful who I send these chain posts to in case they mistake me for spam.
