As I’ve already mentioned, in just over two weeks I’m heading to Austin, Texas for QuiltCon. The Modern Quilt Guild are hosting a linky party for those of us going to find out a little more about each other. And to show a photo of ourselves so when we meet, it will be a little easier to recognise people. Here I am with my youngest, Violet:
And here are five random things you may not know about me:
I do not clean toilets.
Not ever. I married a man who is clean and tidy by nature (some might call him anal – ok, so I’m the one who calls him that, but not without good reason!). I just will not clean the toilet. It’s gross. And the Mr does it for us so nope, you’ll never catch me with a loo brush in hand.
I swear like a sailor.
My language is best described as atrocious gutter talk. I’m also direct and I speak my mind. I don’t mean to offend people but I’m certain I do. It gets me in trouble.
I love biology.
In high school I was a bio nut and my weekend job was as a pharmacy assistant where I learnt about all kinds of interesting diseases. After leaving school, I worked for radiologists as the darkroom technician, when they used real film (back in the day!) and I was convinced I wanted to become a radiographer. Then I assisted with barium enemas. Change of career path right there.
We were married on April Fools Day.
My Great-Gran and Pop were also married on April Fools Day. I didn’t know this until after I was married.
I love to cook.
And I’m pretty good at it. BUT, I can’t cook toast or rice. I almost always burn the toast and let’s not even start on the rice. The Mr bought me a rice cooker for Christmas, bless his little cotton socks.
