I can't believe it - 100 posts already. Doesn't time fly when you're having fun!
I've just seen this on Mad About Bags blog so I thought I'd do it as well. I'm a 'list' sort of person so apologies to anyone who finds them boring.
A to Z of Me ...
Bed size: kingsize
Chore that I hate: all of them!
Dogs: None. Ced used to have a border collie named Bonnie and we used to have an all sorts dog named Patch when we were children. I'd love to have a dog when I retire.
Essential start to my day: black coffee
Favourite colour: red
Gold or silver: Silver and white gold
Instruments I play: all brass except trombone, flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, recorder and oboe. I'm also learning to play the piano and can sort of play the guitar and cello.
Job title: peripatetic music tutor. The previous answer makes more sense now, doesn't it!
Live: Trowbridge, Wiltshire, England
Mother's name: Lilian Grace
Nicknames: My family call me Ein - just Eileen shortened. I spent a lot of my teenage years trying to correct them but in the end, gave up. Sometimes you just have to admit defeat and go with the flow.
Overnight hospital stays: two planned overnights (once for 2 weeks and once for 2 days) and one life saving emergency operation resulting in a 5 night stay.
Pet Peeves: People who annotate library books.
Quote from a movie: I'm not a film fan so I don't really know any quotes.
Right or left handed: Predominately right handed but I also can do everything with my left hand.
Siblings: Two older brothers and a twin sister who is 15 minutes older than me.
Time I wake up: usually between 7:00 to 8:00 am. I only set the alarm if I have to teach in the morning and so need to leave the house by a certain time, currently only Wednesdays when I get up at 6:30am and leave the house by 8:00am.
Underwear: Yes. White.
Vegetables I hate: aubergines. Yuk!
What makes me late: I have a thing about being on time so I'm rarely late for anything. I always allow plenty of time so even traffic delays are not a problem.
X-rays I've had: too many to remember - leg, knee, wrist, chest, kidneys, abdomen, jaw and elbow.
Yummy food I make: roast dinners, chilli.
Zoo animal: tigers and elephants.
If you fancy doing this yourself, please let me know so that I can get to know you better.
