How exciting.  I just got my first “tag”.  Thank you to the wonderful and talented Sarah Salway.  Now I need to tell you six random things about me……but first, the small print.  Here are the instructions she sent me which I am supposed to present so that the new “taggees” know what to do:

1.  Link to the person that tagged you – i.e. me
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write six random things about you in your blog post
4. Tag six people in your post
5. Let each person know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.
Okay.  Here are my answers (and this was surprisingly harder than I had thought it would be):
1. I had a lisp as a little girl and I used to say my name was “Thuthie”.
2. I used to be a serious competitive swimmer.
3. I’ve never gone “clubbing.”
4. The worst hang over I ever had was when my writing professor at Uni plied me with 4 Black Russians — I swore to my friends it wasn’t a hang over; it was the flu.  Hmmm.
5. I wanted to learn to play the banjo when I was 16 and never did, so last summer I bought myself a banjo and now I can slowly play “This Land is Your Land.”
6. I’ve always loved Pete Seeger, but I’ve always hated the song “This Land is Your Land.”
So now Helen, Vanessa, ,Lane Jon, Carol and Bobo, you’re up.
