ABC Meme

Thanks to Jeni Wren for this:

A is for Age: 42

B is for Beer of choice: Lager goes with football 🙂 Must admit I do like Stella.

C is for Career: Medical Herbalist – for the moment, though for how much longer remains to be seen (depends on what happens with Regulation) Also part time NHS admin though this seems to be taking up more hours these days.

D is for favourite Drink: Mornings – strong, black, unsweetened, filter coffee. Daytime – water (lots of it.) Evenings – red wine or vodka & lemonade (1 or 2 glasses only.)

E is for Essential item you use every day: Hmmm…. shampoo I suppose. Can’t go without washing my hair.

F is for Favourite song at the moment: None – I’m not into music.

G is for favourite Game: Spider Solitaire or Free Cell on the PC when I’m waiting for slow web pages.

H is for Home town: Not sure! Born in London but moved around a lot (army brat); Lived in two different towns in Sussex for a long time and have friends and family there; Very at home in Mum’s place of abode (Chester) and Dad’s birthplace (Manchester) but equally happy here near Newcastle. So, pick the one you like most 😉

I is for Instruments you play: Descant recorder – though I can just about manage a recognisable tune on a keyboard too.

J is for favourite Juice: Orange, probably though I’m not really a juice lover.

K is for Kids: Two – a son of 20 and a daughter of 18. Love them more as they have grown as I’m not really a child person. I’m very proud of my lovely kids.

L is for Last kiss: Billy before he left for work this morning.

M is for marriage: On my second.

N is for full Name: Well my Sunday name is “Angela” but I hate to be called by that name. Not because I dislike the name, but because it’s always been shortened so if someone is calling me Angela it means they’ve assumed they may address me by first name rather than asking so I find it patronising. I changed the spelling from Angie to Anji in my teens and it stuck. I’m on my third surname though I do actually still use the second one also. Mainly I’ll answer to anything polite! 😉

O is for Overnight hospital stays: One night in for each of the kids when they were born (that was one night too long for me as well!) and 10 days when Nel was a baby and I had a mystery gastro virus. They never did work it out but I discharged myself in the end as the kids needed me.

P is for phobias: Deep water, tunnels/being underground (though I’m fine on the London Tubes) and I don’t fear the dark per se but I do fear any ill doers that may be lurking in it.

Q is for quote: “Do as you would be done by”

R is for biggest Regret: To be honest I don’t really do regrets – there’s no point living in the past. There may be one or two little things I may have done differently given a choice, but nothing much really.

S is for sports: LOVE my football (as you will know if you follow my blog!) and I love playing darts once a week.

T is for Time you wake up: Usually between 5.30am and 6.30am – I’m a morning person and I normally skip out of bed raring to go.

U is for colour of underwear: Black or white usually, but Blue on City matchdays.

V is for Vegetable you love: Not really a fruit/veg lover, but I do rather like Brussels sprouts – strange as this is one most people hate.

W is for Worst Habit: Poor posture when sitting. I try to remember but I soon forget.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Just teeth (routine checks) I think.

Y is for Yummy food you make: Lots of things. I enjoy cooking and most of it turns out well.

Z is for Zodiac sign: Libra – only just though, so I have a lot of Virgo traits apparently.

If you do your ABC Meme, let me know so I can come and peek. 🙂
