7 random things

Dee got me! I've been tagged for the latest meme - specifically: each person tagged tells seven random facts about themselves in their blog (and at the same time, reiterate the rules). Then you tag seven others, naming them on your blog, and leaving a comment on their blog so they know that they have been tagged. I've been tagged by Dee.

I drive around Birmingham in an orange splotchy smart car (love it!)

I don't like dry sandwiches, or soggy ones. Very picky about them.

I only get my hair cut about 3-4 times a year - it takes me several months to get used to each time.

I have got all of Georgetter Heyer's romances in crappy old paperbacks, and periodically re-read them.

I've been friends with my bestest friend since we were both babies - and our Dads were friends from their babyhood too.

My maximum heart rate is 195bpm (as tested on a static bike this morning, in preparation for a fitness campaign).

Although I am two years older than my brother, I always say 'when we were about 7' etc, as if we were twins!

Feel free to be tagged - DIY style...

Amazon and Amy Singer owe you a commission because I just ordered No Sheep for You after seeing your finished Tuscany. At firt, I thought you knit the same shawl I finished recently, but I realized it was definitely different. The closeup showing the pattern made me want to start one right away. The book had already caught my interest because of Intoxicating, but the shawl sealed the deal. Thanks!

Great photo - so colourful!

glad to help - and we clearly have the same taste in patterns, as those are the two I'm keen on. I may do another Tuscany - love wearing it!

I adore Georgette Heyer (her mysteries too) and always turn to them when I need cheering up. I've just finished listening to Frederica on audio book - great knitting listen!
