Don't Prepare.....

My son and blogging mentor, Paull , has tagged me to give eight random facts about myself. I've decided to pick up the "eight" theme and run with it.......


  • At 8 years of age I was newly arrived from England to Australia. We lived at a Naval Base set next to an idyllic beach in a national park.

  • At 16 I found school boring but managed to top the school in English. Then I left.

  • At 24 I was living in Sydney after two years living and working in Papua New Guinea.

  • At 32 I was the proud mother of Paull, 2 and Eliza, 2 months old !

  • At 40 I was working for the Stroke Recovery Association and studying counselling.

  • At 48 I had completed two University degrees and begun a new career, teaching.

  • You'll have to wait a few years for the next instalment, so, um, our dogs, Beavis and Butthead, are 8 this year! (Never let your kids name your dogs)

  • I adore Lindt 85% dark chocolate ...................

I now tag - my entire blogroll!!

I can't believe the dogs are 8! I guess your post really shows how quickly 8 years can pass, but also how much your life can change in that time...

Great post mum :)
