Random things about me......

I've been tagged for a meme....haven't done one before so here goes.
In Blogspeak, a meme is an idea that is shared and passed from blog to blog, like a question posted in one blog and answered in many other blogs. I'm to list '7 Random things about me'.

Hmmm not easy i can tell you so here's my best shot! Thanks to Kenneth for tagging me.

  • I grew up in Grimsby, NE Lincs, which was the largest fishing port in Europe at one time. I moved North to Scotland at the tender age of 19 years of age...came for six months and apart from a couple of years back in England it's been my home ever since.
  • I'm a bibliophile - there i've admitted it. Thankfully it's not an offence but makes the world a more interesting place. I love books and have done so since being a small child. The internet has just extended that. The first novel i read was 'Kidnapped' by Robert Louis Stevenson. I read this at age 7 years.
  • I read the whole of the Encyclopaedia Britannica between the ages of 10 and 13 years old. I love knowledge and learning new things.
  • I love people, new places and cultures. I often like to sit and people watch, it's very interesting. I love hearing about other folks' adventures and cultures.
  • I once tried to 'stow away' on a ship heading for Africa so that i could see the Elephants.I was found by a crew member and promptly returned to dry land. As a child i was desperate to visit Africa. My first trip abroad at the tender age of 18 was to Africa!
  • I started gardening at age 10 years and have done so ever since, i was fascinated with Allotments as a child and all those plants growing. My mother recalled me 'gardening' as a toddler...although apparently my efforts were not always appreciated by my father!
  • I have always wanted to keep bees. One day i will fulfil this dream and keep hives.
Gosh that was really hard to do! Now i had to decide to tag seven others and here's my choice....it wasn't easy!

Here are the rules for newcomers to this meme:

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to then report this on their own blog with their 7 random facts as well as these rules. They then need to tag 7 others and list their names on their blog. They are also asked to leave a comment for each of the tagged, letting them know they have been tagged and to read the blog.

Hi Ann!

I love your 7 Random Things. What an intelligent and interesting child...and now lovely lady! My favorite was your attempt to stow away to Africa to see the elephants.
That takes courage! :-)

Thank you for tagging me for a meme. This is my very first time to be tagged. How exciting! I'll work on my 7 Random Things in the morning. I can already see this is going to be a difficult list for me to make. Yours were the best!

Cheers!
Dawn

Hello Dawn, I did plan my passage to Africa when i stowed away and had taken supplies for the journey. My list for the journey? 1 pack of chocolate digestive biscuits, one bottle of fruit juice and a raw potato just in case i came down with scurvy....i don't think i would have made it on those supplies somehow. My mother needed me tagged as i was a notorious wanderer as a child - i would just take off, as i got older i would also catch trains and buses which was a worry - amazingly i could cover a lot of ground in a short space of time.

Wow Ann! Sounds like you were a gifted kid. Not a dull moment for your dear mother, I'm sure. Heehee!

I'm still making my list slowly, but surely.

Hope you're having a pleasant weekend.
