Tell me a wee bit about yourself

Recommended Posts

OK by nature, I am a really nosey person so I would love if you all came in and told me a bit about yourself. Just the basics age(?) if you want, family, gender, what you do other hobbies you have (outside of the madness of fish). LOL.

The name and author of the last good book you read?

Type of vehicle you drive, and favourite food. Where are you located?

These things can tell alot about a person.

Told ya I was nosey!!

Firstly will tell you a bit about me, female, mother, under 30 (just?!),

interests are my family, computing,ATT2.gifand reading.

I have three gorgeous/revolting children (depending of the day?!)

I drive a 97 Honda Accord and love all sorts of food, although I dont have a sweet tooth. I love a good cup of coffee coffee_2.gifI am located in the freezing cold Central Otago.


The last book that I really enjoyed was called "Dead run" by P.J. Tracey.

I didn't know you were a Stephanie Plum fan as well. Guess I should have realised seeing we have so many other tastes in common.

And I thought you would have put "as often as possible" in the sex category

Thanx everyone for sharing, great way to learn a bit about each other I think.

I forgot to add I love doing jigsaws, when I have the time.

Right for all you lurkers, stop being shy and add a bit about yourself.

Hi all

I tell everyone that I live the traditional NZ dream.

My husband and I have two children – a boy and a girl.

We live on a ¼ acre section in our traditional three bedroom weatherboard bungalow.

We have a Labrador, a cat and a station wagon.

What more could I wish for? :D

On top of that already perfect life, I am half way through an early years teaching degree. I like walking, surfing the internet, reading and watching TV with my husband. Our favourite programmes at the moment are CSI and House and I loved The Lion Man series.

Favourite food for studying: chocolate, chips and coffee.

Favourite food for watching test rugby: cheese board and port.
