Seven More Things You Don't Know About Me.........





Alex at Pink Feather Paradise, gave me an award last week. I have to list seven things you don't know about me.

I've done a list of seven things before, to read my previous list, see link at the bottom of this post



Seven seems such a magical number........................

Let's see, there's..........................



Dance of the Seven Veils. (Or in my case, as I'm shy - Dance of the Eleven Veils.)


***********

Seven Wonders of the World. One of these is.............




My bank balance being in credit.

******

And let's not forget the very famous............................




Seven of Nine from Star Trek Voyager. (I'm sure you'll have noticed that her character was based on me.)

*******

So, here we go, seven things about me. Guess which ones are true.............

In 1975, Mumsie and me got thrown out of our local posh department store. We were on their beautiful staircase, pretending to be.............




Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. (I was Ginger.)

*********

Except for my fringe (bangs), I didn't have my haircut 'til I was 9 years old.

It was so long - I could sit on it!





I can still sit on my hair, but only because it's falling out and drops on the chair behind me!




*********

When I first left school, I was really tiny. I had such a deep hem on my Dental Assistant's coat, I could stand it up, by itself when I wasn't wearing it!


Me in 1972

I'm the one at the sink. Can you see the 7 inch hem?


*********

One of my aunties made lots of "friends" during World War 2






so some of my cousins.....................




................have lovely white teeth, and can't pronounce "aluminium"!

***********

I used to do trampolining............







***********

When I was much thinner, I also used to ice skate.........




***********

Two of my cousins, (not the ones with the white teeth :O) were always dressed the same.
I was given their "hand me downs" as a little girl. BFF Carol and I would share them out so we could dress the same and pretend we were twins!



***********

I do hope you like me sharing things about my life!

Don't forget to pop back later in the week. I've still got some more letters for my Problem Page.

I think they are all true ! My tiny niece is a dental nurse - she has train tracks now & looks 15 not 25 !
