10 things

I always paint my toenails, even in the winter when they are hidden in socks and boots. It makes me smile to have pink/green/blue nails, even if I am the only one who sees them most of the time.

My favourite comfort food is eggy mash - soft boiled eggs mashed in with potato. I think it's unique to my family, I never heard of anyone else having it, and when I talk about it to other people they look at me strangely...

I have a love/hate relationship with blogging. Mostly I really enjoy it, but lately an insidious lack of inspiration and can't be bothered-ness (are they the same thing?) has been creeping over me. Sometimes my life doesn't seem worth writing about... 2012 is proving a bit of a challenge, so far.

I was married last year to the man I wish I had met twenty years earlier.

I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is a constant challenge. I have to consider my energy levels in everything I do, and mostly I can't do very much. I have been pleased recently as I do seem to be improving slowly over time, but recently it was suggested to me by a doctor that it may just be that I have the impression I am getting better because I am managing to pace myself energy-wise. Thanks for that, doc.

I home educated my son from the age of eleven onwards. it was a wonderful experience and if I could go back I probably wouldn't even send him to school in the first place. 

I can wiggle my ears. Not sure how useful that is, except for amusing small children. 

I don't believe in evolution. Or the Bible version of events, for that matter. Not sure where that leaves me, I am still figuring it out, but there is no way I am related to a monkey ;) 

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. 

My hair is very grey. It started before I was 30, and my roots now are mostly white. One day I am going to embrace the grey and be one of those wonderful white haired older women - just not quite yet......  


  1. Love this. 2012 is prooving a bit of a damn challenge for me too. Sigh.
    Mashed potato is a wonderful comfort food....did you know it helps release serotonin?

  2. Is it so bad to be related to a monkey? They seem nicer than some of my 'human' relations! Sorry that doc said that. I don't care if its true, he took 'the good out of it' as we say in Ireland.


please leave a comment or just say hello, I'd love to hear from you!
