10 Really Silly Things You Didn't Know About Me

Oh great, I have one of those faces and Oh Mammy who I love very much has tagged me the 10 Things You Didn't Know About Me meme. Again. Well she hasn't tagged me again but I have been tagged for the second time. So I'm gonna write another ten things. But these are really silly things that you really don't care about at all.

Schooltandarts / School dentist

1. I sleep with a teddy bear. Always have done. At the moment its one of the comforters Joseph was given when he was small. I tend to adopt a "new" toy every couple of years.

2. I have a fear of dentitsts and haven't been in over 20 years. I really want to go and get sorted out but am too ashamed of the state my teeth are in.

3. I have Rio Ferdinand's autobiography, and queued for hours to get him to sign it. But I've never read it. And I don't support Manchester United.

4. Emmanuel Adebayour is known in our house as "my next husband". But I don't support Manchester City.

5. I've bitten my nails since I was very young, and I give up for months at a time, but then one breaks and I start biting again. I also have a lovely collection of nail polish in the hope that one day I'll have nice nails.

6. I've never smoked a cigarrette. And I am the only person in my immediate family never to do so.

7. I worked in a call centre for a major Australian bank, and used to have one of the lowest call handling times, even though I love to talk. My nickname was Cornelia Frances, the Australian host of Weakest Link, due to the manner in which I ended my calls. "thank you for calling goodbye".

8. I've supported Richmond Tigers FC all my life just about, but sincerely wish I'd picked another team. If I had my time over I'd be an Essendon fan. I only picked Richmond because on the way back from Healesville sanctuary, when I was 12, we stopped and found a toilet at Richmond and I was so grateful. And they have been down the pan ever since.

9. I sometimes plan my little girl's nursery in my head, even though I will never have one. I have have resisted starting a pinterest board though. But only just. If I did have another, I wouldn't be disappointed to have another boy. Boys are fab!

10. I can't see 3D. The magic eye pictures that everyone was raving about in the 90s - completely lost on me. It's due to surgery I had as a child for a squint. When Joseph has his eye tests the opthalmologist or orthoptist says "no helping mum" to which I groan and say "no I can't see it", Joseph is shouting out "car" "flower" and I just sit there. His main opthalmologist decided to test me further, and couldn't stop laughing that my 2 year old could do things I couldn't. 3D films totally lost on me!


  1. Kylie, I am petrified of the dentist and was only blackmailed into going when pregnant with Robert. I didn't go at all when pregnant with James or the free year after and went once with Meg when the dentist told me to 'get off that chair before you blinking give birth in it' I was so nervous. Anyway I have been once :) I have another appointment at the end of the month and if I can do it so can you. Trust me my teeth are horendous (I have very few back teeth) but it wasn't quite as bad as I expected, honest!!!

  2. Kylie, we have too much in common!I've bitten my nails ever since I can remember. I'm on a 'break' from biting at the minute, and have pretty pink nails at the minute. And I've also never smoked a cigarette in my life. And all of my immediate family smoke (or have smoked). I just never saw the need.

    Anyway, hope you're well. Another lovely post. xxxx

  3. I sleep with a teddy bear too, I thought I was the only one!:)

  4. I'm kinda getting the idea that you're not too keen on memes? Find this really interesting though. We're so similar :) x

  5. Actually I do like some memes, more directive ones though, I just don't like the ten things one much, as I never have anything exciting to put. I'd love to do one that is all lies!!!

  6. I actually know a few closet soft toy sleepers! It's not as rare as you might think!
