Seven Things Meme
I have been tagged twice now by Frances Manning and Allison Hall to take part in this meme. I tend to run away from these as I don't think I have many unusual things to share so here goes
1. I once lived in my car - a two door Torana- for about a week when I first moved to Adelaide to do my Dip Ed at Adelaide Uni. Later in the year I lived at the historic Stonyfell House and read books about Virginia Woolf and had dreams in the beautiful old garden.
2.I collect stuff from the 1950s- anodised aluminium goblets and canisters and Fisher price toys-pre 1988 when they were taken over by Mattel. They are so beautiful and unique and I just love collecting!
3.I used to sing in choirs and madrigals and in operas. I have performed at the Palais and the Arts centre. All this was BK (before kids) and I often wonder about taking it up again.
4. I did a grad dip in horticulture when I was home on family leave with my kids- I had never been so excited about learning!!
5. My dad died of cancer when I was 15 and my mum died four years ago also from cancer ...mmm still thinkin about that one
6.I used to be part of a theatre group performing on stage and working backstage and I produced lots of musicals for my school.
7. My first school was at a place called Manangatang in the Mallee area of Victoria- it used to be a joke at uni that you could end up there!!
There you are nothing very exciting - I warned you!
I tag Simon Brown, Pam Arvanitakis, Dean Groom, Judy O'Connell, Tania Sheko, Anne Murchison and Jo McLeay!!
