I've been Tagged !!!

I’ve been tagged by Jane of ICTUCAN , Richard Weinberg The EdTechGuy and Sheryl at 21st Century Collaborative the 8 random facts meme

First, the Rules:
1) Post these rules before you give your facts.
2) List 8 random facts about yourself.
3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them.
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Unlike some friends and colleagues I don't usually enjoy this kind of activity, I think that I have lead quite a boring life really !!!!

1) I lived in Wales only until the age of 24, when I escaped to London.

2) I love a good single malt whisky.

3) I have owned 3 MG sportscars in my life so far !! ( though sadly not at present).

4) I have never been any good at winning prizes at fairgrounds - not so much as a goldfish!

5) I failed my A Levels (many years ago) - but still manged to go on and achieve a BSc Hons and PGCE.

6) I have played hockey for 35 years ( note to self - must retire soon!) almost exclusively for my home club.

7) I have managed to fail to learn any musical instrument ( I believe that this is a gift!!).

8) I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.

I now pass the tag on to :

Joe Dale

Chris Fuller

Grumpy Old Teacher - Roger Distill

Simon Mills

John Johnston

Keith the ICT Teacher

David Noble

Lisa Parisi

Boring? I think not, it all depends on the spin you put on things :)

We have one thing in common, I never win anything ever either. I also never enter any competitions , I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Yep I got tagged for this one too - four times actually!!

I was tagged by Jane also, and had been mulling over it reluctantly in my head all day. Yet when I wrote it, I found it surprisingly fun. I've read so many new, wacky and interesting things on other people's memes now and it seems a good way to get to know the blogger a little better.

Sorry to hear about the bad luck with winning prizes at the fairs... does this bad luck also extend to lotto/lotteries?

Cheers, Rachel
