100th Post! Yeah Me!

For the last 10 posts or so I've been racking my brains trying to decide what to do for my 100th post. According to The Humble Housewife there are traditions in place and it is customary to write 100 things about yourself, I don't think I would be able to think of 100 interesting things about me, and I don't think anyone would be interested in reading them! So as a compromise here's me in 10...

1. I lived in Belgium for two years. When I was 19 (for a year) and again when I was 22 (for another year!)

2. I have one nephew, Fionn who is almost 6 months old and is the apple of my eye!

3. I'm leaving fair green Ireland for the warmer pastures of Australia (with stop overs in Japan & China along the way) this September for a 6 month working holiday (alhough I haven't figured out the working part yet...)

4. I drive a '91 starlet, which I never want to part with. It's my 1st car, a Christmas present from my better half on our second Christmas together. I vow that whenever it stops going I plan to plant flowers in the engine and make it the centrepiece of my garden!

5. I'm vegetarian for the past few years, the only thing I really miss is mince but since I've discovered Quorn my life is complete again!

6. I spent time in prison in the Philippines when I was 21, don't worry, not as an inmate - I was working with prisoners!

7. I hate cucumber, I mean really really hate it, as in - if it's in a sandwich and I take it out I still can't eat the sandwich because of the lingering taste!

8. My confirmation name is Lucia

9. I have an Arts Degree in Media & History which I know I'll never use but will never regret as it took me to Belgium

10. I have 6 piercings and a tatoo but I'm not in the slightest bit punkish or rebellious! Honest!

And on a final note, here's me!

Love the list! Belgium rules! :-) I am so jealous about Australia! You're one lucky lady. Had meant to do all that traveling stuff with the husband in our early twenties, but apparently I'm immune to birth control! :-) We figure we'll do it when (if) we're rich and retired!

Thanks Deborah! I'm sure you'll be rich and famous one day (I can visualise "The Humble Housewife" TV series already!)
