John at Going Gently has a blog post of 25 Fascinating facts about himself. I am game for a laugh so here goes.
1, As a teenager I dated a wannabe pop star, he did make it to the big time long after we went our separate ways.
2, I stole a rolling pin from Woolies in Norwich in 1969, I pt it on the hood of my friends pushchair on our way round and then forgot about it. She found it about 3 weeks later.

5, I have worn specs since I was 8 years old, and am the only one in the family to do so.
6, I passed my driving test, at 18, on the first try and bought a Zephyr 6, AKA "the tank". When I got it home my Dad asked me if they had sold out of double decker buses.
7, My first "bought by me" pet was a budgie.

24, I have had my hair as short as 2" and long enough to reach the back of my knees when plaited.
25, I once died my hair green and yellow, and dressed head to foot to match when Norwich were in the cup run.
Some of these will have been on the blog, it is quite a struggle to decide what to include, and what to leave out. I would not want to mention names as it is an invasion of privacy. Of course now that my list is complete there are lots of things jumping into my mind, perhaps there will be a part 2.
I am planning on a bit of a garden make over, watch this space.
