A - Z of Me

It's been a while between posts. To get me back into the swing of things and for a bit of fun, I'm joining in with Sue from Living the Good Life and an A-Z of me.

A=Age; 46 1/2, eeek, the big 50 is looming!

B=Bed size; Queen, I'm only little!

C=Chore that you hate; currently vacuuming, cause I have a stupid vacuum that keeps falling apart....arrgh!!!

D=Dogs; 'Chester Pester Cat Molester' the Labrador and Tana the Tenterfield Terrorist.

E=Essential start to you day; A quick dash to the loo then a cup of tea. Of course the dogs and the chooks come before the tea.

F= Favourite colour; I love green, especially lime green.

Something else you might not know about me, I have a tattoo of the gumnut babies

G=Gold or silver; Gold, gold, gold, none of that silver stuff for me.

H= Height; My licence tells me that I'm 160cm tall, thank goodness for that cause I never remember!

I=- Instruments you play; I have an antique clarinet that I tried playing a few times, does that count?

J=Job title; Retail assistant wannabe radical homemaker/permaculture gardener.

K-Kids; Whoops forgot to have one. Seriously, one of the selfish decisions I made early in my adult life that I now regret, I think.....

L=Live; Brisbane, Queensland.

M=Mother's name; Mary, sadly no longer with us.

N=Nickname; Leec or Leeceelou

O=Overnight hospital stays; Hmmm there's been a few, a couple of days when I had my tonsils out (aged 5), overnight when I had my wisdom teeth out (I was an adult but they had me in the kids ward), one night spent in ICU, then three days, following oral surgery, then a week due to an emergency admission and surgery (female troubles, you know). I think that's enough!!

P=Pet peeves; Vegans who feed their pet cat or dog, pet food made from factory farmed animals or a vegan diet (it's a carnivore for god sake) I know it's a little obscure. Me, always running late, the story of my life.

Q=Quotes from a film; "Oh, for goodness' sakes, get down off that crucifix. Someone needs the wood" - The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

R=Right or Left hand; Right

S= Siblings; Sister, 18 months older than me.

T=Time you wake up; Depends on the season, 5 - 5.30 at the moment or whenever the chooks wake me up.

U=Underwear; Yes, cotton of course, now I make my own!

V=Vegetable I hate: None, except I can't eat capsicum

W=What makes you run late; I make me run late, see P. Always leaving things to the last minute. It's genetic!

X=Xrays you've had; Too many, loads when I was having dental surgery, ankle, foot, back, hip, mammograms, CT back and abdomen.

Y=Yummy food that you make; I make a mean cheesecake so I'm told.

Z=Zoo animals; Not so keen on animals in zoos. Many years ago I was in the Philippines and we went to the Manila zoo, a very sad place. They had a large male gorilla that was kept in a tiny round cage with little to no room. One of the adults in our group was making monkey noises at the gorilla, it turned around and spat at the guy, got him right in the face. I think justice was served that day.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me. Go on, join in I dare you.

Cheers Lisa
