Ooops.... I Forgot To Do This!!

This post over at Marmadaisy and an email I received this morning reminded me that I was tagged by the lovely Joanna back in May, and promptly forgot to post it (which, lets face it, is pretty much typical me behaviour! Sorry Joanna!)

It’s a meme to answer 6 questions about myself. So, here goes:

What was I doing ten years ago - 1998

Ten years ago I had not long finished sitting my exams for the final year of my degree at Keele. We had recently made the move back from Staffordshire to St Helens and I was eagerly awaiting results day and Graduation (1st July). I was also in the throws of final wedding preparations – final dress fittings, double checking catering/flowers/room bookings/DJs etc. as we were married on 31st July.

5 things on my to do list for today

Make a cup of tea and buy a bacon sandwich from the refectory (because I’m bloomin’ starving!).
Deal with all the outstanding UCAS applications I have on my desk.
Finish my holiday packing .
Attend a meeting at Gracie’s new primary school to find out all we need to know for her to start in September.
Make up a prototype for a new craft idea that I’ve had (more on that tomorrow, hopefully).

Snacks I enjoy

COOKIE’S!!!! Mostly homemade, and most definitely handmade Tollhouse. Oh… and bacon butties, of course.

Things i would do if i was a billionaire

Build my own house with a spiffy craft room filled with stash. Send the kids to private school (something I never thought I would say, but if I had the money I certainly would do it). Build a respite centre for disabled children in our area, and a base for the charity I used to work for (funding is a serious issue for them). Enjoy my life and make the life of those I love as easy as possible for as long as I could.

Places I have lived

This is a bit tragic, because I’ve only ever lived in two counties!! I lived in St Helens, then Stoke on Trent and then St Helens. Can I count St Helens twice??? Please??

6 people i want to know more about

YOU! If you’re reading, and if you haven’t done this before. If you have done this before then you’re excused and can go about your business. If you haven’t, then please feel free to hop aboard the meme train.

There we go. Job done.

Holy Flashback Batman - Stoke on Trent?! I was there years ago *cough 15 years cough* when visiting family in Cheshire.

Good grief I'm getting old. And - I need to get my arse back to England!

Great meme and I love what you'd spend your millions on - including the school thing. I never thought I'd want to send my kids to private school either but now I would if I could afford it.

I never thought about private school until I had my kids, now they both go..although the little one is just at nursery, he has another year before he starts full time. I have to admit, its the best money I've ever spent.

well done marie. we are lucky that the schools in our village are stonking brilliant (top 2% in the country). But had it not been like this and we had the cash (and and and) then private school would be a consideration. Hope it went well at the primary school, Oliver goes to year 1 in september. Year 1???? how the hell has that happpened so quickly
