Seven Things You Might Not Know about Me


The lovely Jan Baynham has nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award. In order to receive this award, I have to tell you seven things about myself that you might not know.

I also had to give seven facts when I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blog award back in 2012 see here so I shall try to make sure these are new ones.

Okay, so here we go!

1. Although I appear to be very sociable, I do not enjoy any social gatherings that last more than two hours. That really, really, really is my limit.

2. I have a rubbish facial memory.

3. I have 'immature ears' (I borrowed that term from a Facebook friend). The ear passages are the size of a child's and have led to periods of deafness and excruciating pain and even perforated eardrums on flights.

4. Because of this I shall be having permanent grommets inserted in two weeks time... gulp!

5. I can dance twelve different dances.

6. I won a fancy dress costume dressed as a mermaid (no, not recently!)

7. I absolutely love Greek food.

I am supposed to nominate fifteen other people for this award but most of the people I would have chosen have already been nominated, so if anyone reading this would like to take up the challenge, then please do so.

  1. Best wishes for the op, Wendy. Next time we meet I want to see a photo of the mermaid costume. And how did your daughter get on in Worthing Birdman? More pics??

  2. Oops, didn't know that you already had been awarded this, Wendy! I didn't follow any blogs then so thank you very much for responding and letting us know seven further facts about you. I hope the ear operation goes well - poor you!

    1. As you know, Rosemary, I am never happy unless I am learning a new dance. I fancy the pasodoble but my husband doesn't.

  6. These nominations are a blessing and a curse. It's lovely to be thought of, but can be challenging to pass it on. Thanks for your sharing your secrets. ;)

  7. It is interesting to read that you can't socialise for long. I can totally relate. After an hour and a half, the smile fades and the eyes become glazed. Maybe its a bi-product of teaching? We used to have to socialise for about eight hours a day. I've learned the skill of disappearing quietly :)

    1. My husband is the same (luckily). We usually arrive late to a party so that after our 2 hr limit, we can leave when everyone else does and not have to look for excuses!

  8. I'm terrible at recognising faces too. When we meet we'll have to use a codeword or something.

  10. Hello Wendy, I've also done the versatile blogger too, its fun to hear things about each other, but most of us have exhausted our friendship circles with them now.

    If I'm honest, its getting more difficult doing these things too!

    Hope all goes well for you with the grommets, and you benefit. :-)
