Tagged


I have been tagged by the kind and lovely Amanda to share seven things about me, so here they are:

1. I collect ribbon and tissue paper, I guess ribbon is quite normal but there's something about the colours of tissue paper that I love. I think it started from buying bits from dinosaur designs, all the paper they wrap purchases in matches the pieces you buy. I'm a sucker for colour.

2. Stripe tops – I have a definite thing for stripe tops at the moment, at last count I may have had seven… anyway I have been looking for the ‘one’ and last week took the plunge and ordered a Saint James one (you know the one Audrey Tautou in Coco Avant Chanel), I’m hoping this will end the search and my obsession.

3. I walk to work every morning and need this 25 minute one-on-one time with my ipod and the fresh air to wake up. If it’s raining or frosty and I have to catch the bus it feels like a part of my day is missing and end up a little cranky.

4. I’m clumsy, if you can drop it, bang into it or trip on it I will. It’s very frustrating, I’m completely uncoordinated.

5. I wish I had a cat of my own, I love house sitting for my parents when I get to spend time with Angus and Lola, they are such lovely beasts especially when they sneak onto my bed at night and moaw at me for a cuddle. It's one of my favourite things.

6. I watch the Mighty Boosh a lot, I love that everytime you get something a little different from it and it always makes me laugh, so does the IT Crowd.

7. I’m going through a stage where I want to change the style of my house a bit, but don’t know what I want or what I want to change. I’m stuck, but it’s interesting.

I’m passing the tag onto my new-to-blogging cousin Amelia, my real life friend Amanda, and anyone else who may like to join in.

Thanks for playing along Catherine! As one of my loveliest blogging friends I really enjoyed getting to know that little bit more about you :) How good you are walking to and from work - it must be nice in the morning having that time to yourself with your ipod. You'll have to post a photo of some of your tissue papers and ribbons one day... as for being clumsy, I too am a real clutz :)

My husband walks to and from work every day and I think it's the greatest thing. I wish I had that built into my day. You can really do alot of thinking or just zone out and relax while walking. Good for you!

So nice to learn more about you. I totally get the stripey top thing - I must check out the top you mentioned - or wait until you post about it!

I love your seven things! I too have an enormous tissue paper collection, i love all the different colours. I use them for wrapping gifts and making things. It's the kind of collection that just seems to grow and grow... And ditto too on number 2 and 3, i love my walk and a stripey tee! Thanks for sharing!

I would have to agree with you on 1 & definitely 2.

I should spend more one and one time with my ipod with a little morning exercise - i'd be a lot more spritely not so desperate for caffeine.
Would love to be a runner or jogger but I am too, abit unco and often trip over my own feet :)

I love your 7 things Catherine. I often listen to my ipod when I'm commuting in the mornings, it makes the journey that little bit nicer. Also I love that you collect tissue paper and adore stripes - also I'm channeling the clumsy thing as well at the moment lol! :)
