The deal is I tell you ten things about myself that you don't know and that, I pass this award on to 10 blogs I admire. There are so, so many that I love, it'll be no easy task whittling it down to just 10 but I'll do my best.
The ten things you didn't, but do now know are:
I'm a qualified but currently non-practising Counsellor.
I'm hoping to qualify as a Hypno-therapist.
I have moved house more times than is probably decent!
I met my beloved fiancee through a Dating Agency ... and, He is The One.
On my childhood passport it says 'Colour of Hair ..... Golden' - bless my Mum, who clearly couldn't call me Ginger even on an official document!
When I was a child I had an imaginary friend called Marley. I do wish we had kept in touch but, as so often happens, we drifted apart as we grew up.
My name isn't really Penny. Officially, I'm Kay (Penelope).
Last year I learned to draw.... and, drew a picture for my fiancees Xmas present. I am immensely proud of it but wonder at my choice of subject matter. Its of a Lady of the Night in a Graveyard. Not sure if its says more about Him or about me! Drawing was one of my lifelong ambitions and I managed it only with the generosity of my talented artist friend and neighbour Jo. The picture is top right.
I have a fascination for co-incidence. When I was a teenager my Dad bought me a book called 'Honest Penny' he'd picked up in Smiths for 50p. It was about Slot Machines and having no interest in such things, the book kicked around our house for about ten years before my elder brother bothered to flick through it. Stunned, he found a photo in the book that made him go pale. Staring back up at him from the pages was a photograph of Him, the younger of my two brothers John, and my cousin Graham queuing up to put money in a slot machine. None of us knew the photo even existed, let alone had been published in a book bearing my name which my Dad would then buy as a bit of a joke. Weird or what?
I was mathematically phobic at secondary school and regularly used to throw up before lessons - I was allowed to
give up studying maths! Which, is why you'll still see me counting on my fingers and toes and anybody elses who'll let me!
