10 Things you might like to know about me...

1. What was the last film that really moved/disturbed/thrilled you and why? Jane Eyre. The eerie noises from the attic room get me every time.

2.If you could be given ANY gift what would it be?
The gift of pushing thoughts into other people's minds particularly my husband so I don't have to repeat myself. I love my husband so much despite this.
Can I have a second gift?  The ability to crochet. It's the one craft I have FAILED at. I can never keep the tension right.

3.What's your favourite way to wake up and what's the first thing you do?
I love a little sleep in. 8am is the latest I sleep into these days.  First thing I like to do in bed is have a coffee while reading a book or my iPhone.

4. What crafts have you done?
You name it I have probably done it in a big or small way. Scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, cross stitching, tapestry, knitting, crochet, hobbytext (remember that one?) are the biggies.

5.  What were you doing before you started this?
Chasing my toddler around. It's quiet downstairs I think I should go check to see what mischief he is up to.
ADDIT - checked Tom. He was taking all the photos frames from the top of the dresser and giving them to Bob, the cat.

6. When was the last time you cried laughing?
Last week reading my 10 yo DS's story.  His characters were losing limbs and dying all over the placein his sci-fi fantasy story.

7.What did you want to be when you were little?
A school teacher.  I changed my mind in Year 9 and became a doctor instead.

8. What is your current favourite TV program?
Doc Martin. I've only just become a convert and love it. Maybe it's the doctor patient cringe moments in it I relate to the most. 
9. What would you name yourself?
I have been known as Jan nearly all my life so I would drop Janette from my birth certificate if I could.

10. What characteristics do you hate about yourself?
I'm terrible at keeping cupboards tidy

I like this post, I might copy it and pass it on myself.
Your life with 2 boys sounds like mine!
I have to go now to look at a picture of evil bib-babs turning everything into monsters!
