All about me

It's been far too wet and miserable to take any pictures of my finished Swallowtail so instead your Wednesday night blog post is the meme that is doing the rounds at the moment.... I considered myself tagged by Lin
1) What was I doing ten years ago?
Exactly 10 years ago I'd just turned 21 and was sitting my geography finals in Sheffield. Pretending to revise, wondering about what the future held. Worrying about losing touch with my friends and apprehensive about a potential move to London. I passed despite the lack of revision, I am still friends with everyone from Uni who I wanted to stay friends with and the move to London was a success - despite having NO money whatsoever.

2) What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
1. Buy birthday presents, some belated some for next week
2. Pay in a cheque
3. Have dinner with my friend Lynn
4. Write a blog post
5. Call Lauren

3) Snacks I enjoy:
If I am honest, just chocolate, especially Malteasers and Twirls and G&B's chocolate.
However more recently I'm learning to enjoy apples and bananas and low fat yoghurt instead.

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Hmmm... I'm not sure even that much money can magic up the things I dream of .....In my imaginary world I'd have all my friends living close enough to me so that I could pop around for a cup of tea. Everyone would be healthy and happy. I'd have pigs and a big vegetable garden and enough time to knit and not feel like I'd wasted the day. And I'd never have to do any cleaning.

5) Places I have lived:
Wolverhampton, Sheffield and then Roehampton, Fulham, Colliers Wood and Mitcham in London.

6) Jobs I have had:
Worked in a shop that sold cheap jewellery, ornaments, jokes and fancy dress.
Packed frozen chips on night shift
Packed surgical examination kits
Assembled garden taps
Worked in Woolies (this lasted about 2 weeks)
Graduate Trainee at the department for Education
Corporate Finance researcher

7) Peeps I want to know more about:
Roobeedoo, Bryony, Delle
