Cyndi tagged me to take part in the 11 Randomness challenge and its good timing because I dont have much to blog about (or time to blog) lately.
First the rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in your tagger’s post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers YOU tag to answer.
5. Tell the bloggers you’ve tagged that they’re it.
6. Oh, and no stuff in the tagging section about “you’re tagged if reading this”.
11 Random Things about myself
1. I am a plodder. I like things predictable.
2. Pinterest is my favourite place.
3. I loathe Blogger.com and if people weren’t my friends I’d unfollow their blogs just for using it.
4. I’ve lost 2kg’s, so only 5 more to go. Urgh.
5. I miss ice cream and chocolate sauce (see above).
6. I’d rather read a book than do anything else.
7. I loathe exercise.
8. I wish I didnt loathe exercise.
9. I’ll be finding a way to get rid of a few of my daughter’s birthday gifts.
10. I made it through leap year without proposing. Phew.
11. I’m completely tone deaf.
