Tagged: 7 random facts

I have been doubly tagged, first by Jodi from Jodi's Journey, and then by Ana from Chica and Pumuckl.

So now, I have to tell you seven random things about myself.
  1. My grandfather was Italian.
  2. I am right-handed but do use my left hand for several things, such as opening bottle or jar tops, or shuffling cards. As I haven't played cards since the days of playing Snap, I most probably can't shuffle cards with either hand now.
  3. We were always a dog family, but when our last one died ten years ago, we decided not to have another pet. Then our son's cat came to stay. We are now a cat family.
  4. The main thing I miss about having a dog is the walking. I used to enjoy taking her out two or three times a day. I have since become adept at solo walking, but confess to being a fair-weather walker now. I used to be happy walking the dog in the rain.
  5. I have small feet - UK size 3, Europe 36, USA 5, Australia 4. And I had no idea there were quite so many different size systems for shoes. I am always so delighted if I find a pair of shoes to fit that I am unlikely to quibble about style or colour. Within reason.
  6. There are certain tunes that become imprinted into my mind and I find myself humming them at odd moments. The latest for me is Winchester Cathedral. Oh-bo-de-o-do oh-bo-de-o-do.
  7. I started this blog thinking it would involve very little effort. I was wrong.
At this point I am supposed to tag a number of other people. I'm not going to do that, but I will say that all of you readers are more than welcome to consider yourselves tagged.


  1. Lol at the blog being more effort than you imagined. There are a lot of tools out there to assist in blogging though. I presonally use Windows Live Writer and it automatically uploads pictures form my computer to store on my webspace. If you don't have your own webspace, I think you can still do that with Picassa.

  2. oh yes, a blog is so much work. especially with all those things around like dropping entrecards, visiting others, doing meme, receiving awards... but still it's a nice hobby and worth the efforts, isn't it?

  3. @Emm, yes I do use Picassa, but I don't really find the uploading of pictures a chore, it's more the scanning of the cards and looking up the information.

  4. @Ana, yes, definitely worth the effort. I have met so many great people through it, some who have turned into wonderful friends.

  5. Very interesting facts. I'm taking notes. But is there really a cathedral named Winchester? Or is that just a song? I though Winchester was a maker of rifles.

  6. @Max, I'm glad you're taking notes because I'll be giving you a test later. No there isn't a cathedral named Winchester. There's a cathedral in Winchester though which is called Winchester Cathedral, if you want to split hairs. I can't believe I haven't posted a card showing it. I must rectify that.

  7. Well, yes, I did know there was a cathedral in Winchester, famous for not ringing its bells to stop one's baby from running away. And I have even seen a photograph of same on another lady's blog. Something to do with the American national anthem, I believe. Although the connection is rather convoluted at best. This other woman is rather an intellectual, you see.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
