NaBloPoMo and a few things that you may not know about me.

I started my blog  a week ago and there's a load of stuff that I still don't understand, like what's an RSS feed and do I have one? What's tumblr ? How do I a make my blog look the way I want it to and add labels? But the reason I started my blog was to write, something I've always wanted to do but didn't know where to start. A gentle prod from another blogger was what I needed to start my own blog and here I am!
 I discovered NaBloPoMo (National Blog post Month)  through  Vonnie at http://nowtspecial.wordpress.com/   and I will (really really try to)  post a blog every day this month.

 NaBloPoMo - November 1st

  • I have 4 bicycles. All but one were bought for me by my lovely husband, because one bike can not do all things (apparently).
  • My guilty pleasure is..............OK pleasures are...  Neil Diamond, Green and Blacks, sweet and salty popcorn and John Lewis Oxford Street (on my own no purchase necessary).  
  • I make my tea with 2 teabags...always.
  • I love to travel which is inhibited only by my fear of flying !!! I once flew to Italy and came back by train. It really does get in the way. I am desperate to go to Australia but fear we may have to emigrate!
  • I have still not watched series 1 of Homeland, we have the box set but we also have The Little Sleep Thief.
  • I used to think I was a morning person until my mornings started at 5am (see above).
  • I was born on Christmas Day which is quite often forgotten, only once by my own parents though ;)
  • I nearly lost my daughter to meningitis and my youngest when he was born. My children are  precious. 
  • This was my first post Time to send the change of address cards, we are no longer in a long distance marriage. Hooray !
