Seven things about me!

Well here goes nothing, all my esteemed bloggers have blurted out there seven things so I will embark on the same mission. I warn you all it may be extremely boring as I live such a dull and sheltered life lol.

1. I have a dread of being late for anything, this has been a major blight in my life as if I am
even a minute late I break out into a cold sweat which gets progressively worse the later I

2. I once foolishly went skinny dipping in Majorca in the middle of the night while very pissed
with my friend and two guys we met, I got out in the middle of the bay in Santa Ponsa and
promptly got stung by a jellyfish!! It was not a thing to be repeated.

3. I have a absolutely crippling fear of Piers as a result of my dad nearly backing the car off one
down in Wexford, I actually get out of the car if we have to go on one and I am so paranoid I
take the children with me.

4. This will be hard to believe but a guy I used to go out with threatened to commit suicide when
I broke up with him, he is alive and well to this day!

5. I used to be a solo singer in the choir in School, I also did drama and was in productions in my

6. I have a very high pain threshold, I know this because when I was in labour with my first
child they kept offering me a epidural and I refused, after 24 hours they were amazed I
never asked for it and told me that they could count on one hand the amount of women who
turned it down!

7. Finally I am fiercely loyal to my friends and would do anything to protect them, however I
hate to be made a fool of and find it very hard to forgive someone for doing it.


  1. wat a cool seven! cant believe u were a solo singer. i havent a note in my head!!!
    we'd all do anything 4 u too and i cant imagine anyone wanting to make a fool of u

  2. They're great Andra. Also I don't think anyone who is coping with autism and aspergers leads a 'dull' life.

  3. Cool seven Roomie! Snap on the pain threshold and loyalty! But unfortunately not on the signing! Must get you to belt out a few bars on our next night out xx

  4. Andra, I think that you down played a lot of what you have done. You have done some great things...singing solo is wonderful and you should be very proud of that. And not getting an epidural is definitely something to brag about. I had hard labor and ended up with a c-section but those few hours were hell! So kudos to you!

    I bet that you are a true blue friend and it would be a privilege for anyone to be your friend.

    Hugsxxxx Lora :)

  5. Great list! Snap on the pain threshold too. My first one was born within an hour of getting to the hospital with no epidural or anything else. And for the second one, I couldn't even feel the contractions, the midwife was amazed (had to have a section though because she was breeched but was up and walking about the next day). X

  6. Fab list doll...skinny dipping, eh??? bet the jellyfish got an eyeful! xxx
