An ABC of me...

...or "too much information". Reading with Tea did this meme yesterday and as I'm tired and uninspired, here are my answers!

Age: 27.5

Book Size: Something portable and in paperback.

Chore that you hate: Taking out the garbage/doing the hand washing-up.

Dogs: As long as it’s nowhere near me, you can keep yours (I stole this answer from Yvann, but how true for me too!)

Essential start to your day: A swim. Immersion in water wakes me up and makes me feel I've done something useful before getting dressed.

Favorite colour: Pink. If there's a choice of colour, I want it in pink.

Gold or Silver: Silver generally, but I wear white gold wedding and engagement rings - but that's silver coloured rather than gold surely?!

.Height: 5' 6"

Instruments you play: Euphonium, baritone, trombone, piano - I used to play the flute too. I also play the triangle with considerable skill.

Job Title: Reading Room Supervisor (Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link)

Kids: are best when you only borrow them and can give them back..

Live: Oxford, UK.

Milk: semi-skimmed (1.5%-2%) or soya if on my cereal. Soya doesn't work in coffee or I'd have it all the time.

Nicknames: V, Veri, and at work I seem to get called "pet" a lot by my new team.

Oldest living relative: My Gran - 83 I think.

Pet Peeves: Husband watching fail videos on You Tube, it raining when I have to cycle home.

Quote from a movie: "It's a bloody euphonium" (Brassed off)

Right or Left handed: Left!

Siblings: Nope, but now I have a sister AND brother in law! Yayy!

Time you wake up: Just before 6.05 due to the fact that the wake-up-daylight-lamp is set a tad earlier than my phone alarm. I don't actually wake up properly until mid morning, sometimes not even til after lunch.

Underwear: Yes. Except when I forget to pack it...

Vegetable you hate: Where to start? Brussel sprouts, turnips, swedes, parsnips, beetroot. And do not even mention cabbage to me…

What makes you run late: Struggling to get out of bed, having an extra cuddle with my husband.

X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth. But the latest one did not show up the fact that my roots on my wisdom teeth were growing at a funny angle and that I should really probably have gone to the hospital for its extraction. Also had a chest xray aged 10 for a heart murmur.

Yummy food that you make: Cake, in all sorts of forms.

Zoo animal: Penguins!

Phew! Are you still reading?!


  1. Love these little memes, might have to do this one myself!

  2. great insight ,all the best stu

  3. A great way to let everyone know you are ok and learn more about you.

    I think I might do this as well.

  4. *waves hello*

    The euphonium! How fancy. :D
    I used to play the French horn when I was in elementary school. It was torture for all who listened... *grin*

    This is a neat meme which I think I will steal. ;)

  5. Do you and I really hate allllll of the same vegetables? If so, my belief that someone cloned you when you were 3.5 and made me, continues to grow.


Do leave a comment - I love to hear from people who read my blog.
