More me...

I thought I'd tell you a few things about me you might not know... Partly because I just want to write something, but done know what, partly because in the past two months my readership seems to have increased by a third, so some of you might want to get to know me more - I'm very considerate like that, you see...

* I bite my nails, but not compulsively. I just prefer to bite them instead of clip them. I don't bite my thumbs nails because they're too tough and it hurts my teeth. Also, just in case you were wondering, no I don't bite my toenails, I clip those!

I also can't take photos - well, I can but this is not my best work.


* I love to wear head coverings. I love hats, but not so much on me. I personally wear headscarves in preference to hats. I once wrote a big post about headscarves and various ways to wear them. I wear headscarves more in winter, of course. I love them to have fringing or to be colourful or glittery - yep, I'm very gaudy like that!



* Despite having lived in Melbourne for the past almost 15 years, I struggle to wear black. I do have black clothes - quite a peppering these days - but I had to make a conscious decision to choose those items over something more colourful. On a crowded train platform in Melbourne in the dead of winter, amongst the sea of black and grey, you'll find me in my bright green velour coat! I never wear head-to-toe black. I also rarely, very, very rarely wear pastel colours. I just like brights - that's me...



* I'm an extremely proud mother of four boys who turn 13, 11, 7 and 4 this year! Oh, oh, you already knew that? Well, okay, you caught me, this is just an excuse to post a photo of them...

Swishy, Buddha, Blue and the recently renamed Emoboy (yeah, no
it has absolutely nothing to do with the colour of his clothes -
but yes, I did have to ask him to smile, and that was his best effort...).
* I adore elephants. If I personally had to power to protect one species on the planet from extinction it would be elephants. I find them fascinating and amazing! I loved this ad from Samsung (even though I doubt they could convert) me from I-devices)...



What do you think people might not know about you?

What a wonderful post. The comment about the black clothes in Melbourne made me smile. That was the first thing I noticed when I went there.
