tag, you're up!

Having been tagged by Goodhen and seen that both she and The Daily Liam have given in to temptation, here are seven things about me (that you may or may know and may or may not find interesting)
1. The first time I visited America I arrived on a ship that had sailed the Atlantic.
2. I hate that I cannot raise an eyebrow; it is the most emotive facial movement and I am both envious of and in love with all those who can. bastards.
3. I am finding keeping my secret very difficult
4. I am fully qualified in hairdressing manicure and massage.
5. I could spend all my time watching films.
6. I love singing hymns, and carols.
7. I can deal blackjack, roulette, punto banco, dice and poker - and I'm very good at it (which is less common than you might think).

Luckily for you - I have no idea how to tag anyone - if you are reading this then I'll do the old fashioned way - "tag - you're it". Now off you go and waste a while.

New Direction

So then, haven't been back to this since I quit the Web 2.0 course and wasn't sure that I would at all. But as a friend or two have offered encouragement and I've missed posting, I've had a thought or two about what my blog could now be for and decided that just things I am doing and things I find that interest me is just fine.

On that theme, today I am off in to town to source some wool and something to crochet it with. Goodhen very kindly gave me a lesson or two in crochet before she hoped over to Newfoundland and I enjoyed it. As my better half is currently working like a donkey 7 days (and evenings) a week I now have time at the weekends to involve myself in solo projects...yay!!

Will also try to pick up a new set of strings for the electric guitar as the current ones are rubbish. This is also a new skill (the guitar playing that is) but I can only currently force an hour or so each weekend on it. Hopefully that will expand as I get better (or should I say if I get better!!)

So off I go - I'll let you know if I'm successful in either search and will deffo post pics of my first crocheted item.

BTW - if anyone decides to go and see Watchmen, take a cushion!!
