I spotted this one over at Dulwhichmum's site after her toting it on Twitter... (she didn't tag me but hell I stole it anyway!!)
The Tag/Meme is 7 words that describe me!!...
Totally, financially and in life generally too. I do know people who have to check with someone else if they can breathe or not!... not for me I am afraid....
I am a Mum of the Teen. Well actually/ technically now I am a MiniMum of a Teen.... not sure when it happened it just sort crept up on me over night .... I am now way shorter than Teen. On holiday it was even more frightening when she put on her high heels and teetered at around 6 foot.
She's great though... not a bad Teen at all when all things are considered.
Yep ...very.... I love researching and reading about history, doing family tree research, visiting grave yards. As Teen puts it in that slightly patronising yet caring voice 'you are a bit of a geek Mum'. However, I am not a computer geek which is testimony to the fact I lost all my 'geeky' saved stuff when old boy PC died in May ......
Particularly to old folk and animals. I do find that is very useful in both real & virtual worlds [*snigger*]
Like an Ox .. that is my Chinese year of birth. Always hated that growing up the fact I was born in the year of the ox ( actually my ex was born in the year of the rat ... hee hee ) .... however, strangely I do portray a lot of the characteristics, maybe there is something in it after all ....
Or maybe it is inquisitive? But after many, many years of having to establish the norm and questioning the abnorm, old habits die hard. I do find it astonishing how much people take as read and don't bother to ask why?.... or maybe I am just nosey lol...
A frustrated artist ... I should have gone to art college as I wanted to as a teen but my mother persuaded me otherwise 'the only good artist is a dead artist!' she said. mmmm I am sure many of today's very successful artists would disagree. But being a teen and wanting to earn money those words stuck in my brain and steered me in a very different direction.
Happily now I have more time on my hands I do do a bit of creative type stuff and love photography so that satisfies the art hole.. (I said 'art hole!!')
It was actually surprisingly quite hard to settle on 7 words.... I am not going to tag anyone but do have a go it is actually quite and interesting experiment ... see there is the geeky part of me again!!!
