The Lovely Kate was tagged and has asked us to fill in the blanks regarding some questions about ourselves.
So here it is....
My Favorite meal is.... Chicken Caesar Salad ( with the dressing on the side ;-) ) followed by anything chocolate but Mud cake if I can get it.
Do you have a quirky eccentricity?....yes my husband! He just told me I have too many to mention :-)
My middle name is.... Ann, after my mother.
I am passionate about.... horses, my other family pets, wool,books, family, and at the moment as it changes often, crochet, blogging and avoiding housework!
Thongs or Birkenstocks... Definitely Birkenstocks or any other super chunky sandal or boots.
Who was I before I had kids... Looking for love in all the wrong places, hence the 'older parent' status ( one person even asked me once if the boys were my grandchildren...ooops ). Maybe that's not the answer Kate was searching for??? Well.... I have always been passionate about animals so naturally I became a Veterinary Nurse. I worked after school to start with and then in various practices around Sydney and Canberra and I even did 4 years in London in a great practice and worked with all the visiting specialists. After moving to Cairns 15 years ago I did various jobs in all manner of places but my favorite ones were: a horse riding trail guide for all the Japanese tourists, working on a station near Cloncurry as a gardener (boy that was hard work), working as a milker at a dairy farm, brilliant but very rainy and split shifts are a killer! Finally as a DPI inspector on a Fruit Fly Road Block checking all the traffic for contraband ie Fruit. Great Fun!! Here I was set up by a colleague on a blind date with Billy....now my husband and father of my two 'full on' boys...and they lived happily ever after :-)
Have I ever been arrested.... No, drunk and disorderly but never arrested!
This weekend I will.... Take the boys to hockey, go grocery shopping, do the markets on Sunday, ride my horse, watch TV with Billy, share a family meal (Billy is home too late during the week), knit, crochet, read, blog and have 5 minutes peace while Billy has some quality time with the boys.
Hope you enjoyed....
