Seven things about me:
I've always been a lover of singing and dancing and often sing around the house or make up silly ditties to sing to whoever cares to listen!
I'm a bit of a "builder's tea" lover, with no milk and 1 sugar. I could quite easily drink cup after cup and I think deep down the reason for this is that I feel having a cuppa will put off what I really should be doing.
I teach my two children (14 and 11) myself and have done for a number of years now. It took my a long time to pluck up the courage to do, but as soon as I did it, I knew it was the right thing for my kids. We've learnt an awful lot of wonderful things along the way, and have met alot of wonderful people too.
I'm a published women! When working in childcare, I went on a fascinating course to learn about child schemas and wrote an paper on one of the children in the playgroup where I worked who demonstrated a schema as a way of learning. My paper was chosen, along with a couple of others, to be published by the course leader, the wonderful and very inspiring Professor Tina Bruce, in a book she had written.
So I asked my kids what else I could say about me. This is what they said: "you like to talk about maths all the time", "you're obsessed with horses' feet", "'tidy your room' are your favourite words", "you're cool", "your're fun and different to other mums". Well at least I'm not a complete ogre then!!
I past my driving test first time when I was about 19 but wasn't at all eager to buy or car or drive around once I'd got my driving license. I drove my hubby's car (then my new boyfriend lol) around the town I grew up in, but very quickly lost my confidence as the car was old and kept cutting out when standing in traffic for too long! The only way to get it started again was to hop out and hit the starter motor with a hammer - not a confidence builder at all!
I love property and will always be looking at what's available on the market to buy. I had the opportunity to work in an estate agents when I was in the 6th form, but decided having fun with the lads was a much better education! I often wonder where my path would have taken me should I have taken that lead many moons ago.
For nominations, I've chosen the following blogs:
