I am a Pisces - not that I follow that type of thing.
My Mum was 16 when she married my Dad. My Dad was 18. I was born 2 years later.
I am the oldest child.
My parents had 2 more kids together.
My parents divorced when I was 6. Mum was pregnant with my brother.
My Dad and Step Mum have been together for 28 years (yep if you do the maths my Dad was a bit naughty)
My Dad and Step Mum didn't have any kids together. I guess they figured that 6 was enough.
I have 1 sister, 1 brother, 1 half brother, 2 step sisters and 1 step brother. I never use the word step or half when I talk about them. Yes I just did but just for the purpose of the exercise ;)
My Mum and Step Dad
My Mum and Step Dad had 1 son together.
I grew up in North Queensland.
I went to 4 different primary schools and 3 different high schools (I went to 1 high school twice)
I left school school in year 11. I didn't even see the year through. This is my biggest regret.
I wanted to be a chef.
My first job was as a check out chick at IGA.
I tried to get an apprenticeship as a chef but none were available.
These days I'm glad I didn't become a chef.
I worked at KFC for 3 years.
I represented my area for 2 years in a row in an Australian wide KFC service challenge.
When I turned 18 I started working at an Italian Club.
At 18 I was diagnosed with Pancreatitis and told I could never drink again.
I do drink now, the Pancreatitis was caused by gall stones that were not diagnosed
properly until I was 22. That was 5 years of hell for me (not the being unable to drink, the freaking pain!)
I worked in a casino for 9 years.
I love my husband unconditionally.
I have a birth mark dead centre on my bottom lip. It looks exactly like a scar as if I had split my lip open.
I wear glasses.
I have slight astigmatism.
I have short hair. It changes colour regulary.
During both of my pregnancies I developed Obstecric Cholestasis. Worse with my second.
Both my babies were induced 4-6 weeks early.
I have Hashimotos.
My thyroid is dying.
I have a goitre.
I hate cutting up raw chicken. I gag when I have to touch it. Probably a good thing I didn't become a chef.
I own a matching Louis Vuitton wallet and bag. They are real.
I have been to Paris. The bag was bought there.
I tear up at the most silliest things.
My first car was Green Ford Escort. It never made it on the road.
My second car was a Red Subaru Leone. It did make it on the road but I never got to drive it as a friend crashed it and wrote it off before I could get my license.
I have read all the Harry Potter books ten times over.
I have all the Twilight and Harry Potter audio books on my iPod and have listened to them 10 times over.
I think that Mrs Browns Boys is THE most hilarious show that I have EVER watched.
I am amazed how birds can fly in a V formation. Who taught them that and why.
I stay in the shower for far too long.
I go mad at my daughter for taking too long in the shower.
When the planes hit the Twin Towers on 9/11 I was in the VIP bar at the Casino were I worked.
When the news came through of Princess Diana's death I was at my sisters wedding reception.
When I was 14 my Aunty died. It tore my heart out.
I don't do mornings very well.
I have never been to South Australia, Tasmania or the ACT.
I didn't get to go overseas until I was 31.
I've been to Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland and if you count the stop over, Singapore too.
The feel of some textures sends shivers down my spine in a bad way. For example, the thought of rubbing my nails over the fabric of a Cabbage Patch Kid gives me goose bumps.
I had two Cabbage Patch Kids when I was young. April May and Adam Derek. They now live on my daughters bed.
I have a yellow teddy bear that I received Christmas 1978. He sleeps on my daughters bed too.
I drink Sauv Blanc in Spring and Summer and Cab Sauv in Autumn and Winter (actually I drink the Sauv Blanc in those months too but don't drink red in Spring and Summer unless it is to go with what I'm eating)
I like German beer.
I like the idea of being a vegetarian but just can't give up meat. I try not to think about where it comes from further than I have to.
I survived the Gibb River Road.
I've been to Moulin Rouge.
I didn't climb the Eiffel Tower - too many tourists.
The day I went to visit the Louvre it was closed. Who knew it was closed on a Tuesday.
I know the entire series of Sex and the City and Will & Grace off by heart.
In Paris I stayed in the same hotel and on the same floor that season 6, episodes 19 & 20 of SATC were filmed in.

I prefer comedies and action movies over soppy love stories (unless it's a comedy one)
I have a collection of lizard ornaments.
Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch (I can speak a little German)
I can run though.
I can't grow finger nails very well.
I crack my knuckles.
I'm double jointed in the top knuckle of all 8 fingers.
I love candles.
I enjoy gardening.
I love my iPhone. Mr Hausfrau is pretty sure it's glued to my hand.
My handwriting changes ALL the time.
I listen to all sorts of music from Eminem to Mozart.
I love 80's music.
I love the feeling of hopping into a bed with fresh linen.
My favourite cartoon as a kid was the Flintstones.
I don't smoke.
I did smoke.
I gave up smoking 13 years ago.
I drink too much "Mother"
I like ironing while watching TV.
I'm a Grammar Nazi - there is a difference between "your and you're" and "there, their and they're"! (If by chance you find a mistake in this blog post for the love of God let me know. Because that would just be down right embarrassing - although I did write this late at night and I have been on painkillers of late)
I don't drink enough water.
I am fresh on the blogging scene.
I am probably boring you by now ;)
