A lovely relaxing weekend has been had with my friends in Nottingham. I am had my first visit to a "Mothercard World" an experience in itself. C has finally overcome her fears and purchased some items for the impending little one... not long to go now, I'd better get on with the blanket!
The Dolly is nearly finished, but I feel a bit strange photographing her when her arms and legs aren't attached! Hopefully photos tomorrow. In the mean time, I got tagged by Bryony... (how exciting)

4 jobs I’ve had:
Sales assistant in a fancy dress shop
Packing surgical dressings in a factory in Wolverhampton. Was the cleanest holiday job I've had
Packing frozen chips overnight in another factory in Wolverhampton (that was horrid, but paid, oh at least £4 per hour which was loads.
Library Assistant for the Department for Education and Employment (my biggest fear was treading on David Blunkett's dog in the lift!)

4 films I can watch over and over:
Top Gun (oh dear... but I feel the need, the need for speed)
Moulin Rouge
Me Without You
Pulp Fiction

4 tv shows I love to watch:
E.R. religiously, since the first series
Grand Deisgns - dreaming of the house TT is going to build one day
Friends - religiously at University. Now it is always a safe bet
Vic Reeves Big Night Out. In fact anything with Vic and Bob in has me in hysterics

4 places I’ve lived:
Wolverhampton, for 18 years
Sheffield, at Uni (twice)
Fulham in a house that cost peanuts to rent but with some nasty housemates who never emptied the bin, ate my lasagne and talked about me on the bus (whilst I was sitting 3 seats behind)
Colliers Wood (at the bottom of the Northern Line with L and S)

4 places I’ve been on holiday:
So many to choose from. Here is a good selection
The Lake District (as this is the place I've visited most often)
St Petersburg, visiting a friend who was studying there. It was Easter and it was the coldest I have ever been
Ireland - 3 times now
Mexico - my dad won a trip to Acapulco on the local radio when I was 13. It was the first time on an Aeroplane for me, and still is the furthest I've been. A complete culture shock but I loved it.

4 websites I visit daily:
BBC News and Weather ( I am addicted to the weather)
Most of the Blogs on my sidebar
The Wolverhampton Wanderers website (because I am a sucker for punishment)

4 fave yarns:
Noro Kureyon - It is stripy and multicoloured and felts (what more do you need?)
Rowan Big Wool - Ace scarves in no time at all
Opal sock yarn, because it is stripy and also because it washes so well
Rowan Ribbon Twist, it's like a novelty yarn, but not quite (and all my accessories are made in it)

4 websites I’m tagging:
Um... now I am stuck, anyone that reads this that wants to...

Yay! Thank you for responding :) Wish I'd have put down some Vic and Bob... ;D I still haven't finished watching Catterick tho, so I don't think I'm allowed to!
