11 things meme

I was recently tagged by Laura of Blue Eyed Night Owl (one of my favourite blogs and shops, as you may know) in the 11 things meme. I am excited because this is, I think, my first ever meme!
I tag: Ashlie, Claire, Claire, Earl, Jenna, Lou, Masha, Rachele, Romi, Sam and Yadira.


The Rules of the Game
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. No tag backs and you legitimately have to tag 11 people.


11 Random facts about me
1. I love to sit in the front row at the cinema and be enveloped by the screen.
2. I dislike pears intensely - the taste, the texture, everything.
3. I gave birth to my son using self-hypnosis and no other form of pain relief; it was an amazing experience.
4. I turned 5 in Tuscon, Arizona where we lived for a short time. The cacti, desert, highways, flash storms, hummingbirds & bubblegum are still somewhere a part of me.
5. My granny turns 102 this year.
6. I think the first thing I ever cooked was an omelette dyed with blue food colouring, aged about 6.
7. I am good with roses but bad with house plants.
8. I get confused between left and right
9. I know how to read Tarot cards (but I don't do it very often)
10. I briefly sang in a Bossa Nova band as a teenager (now I just sing nursery rhymes to my little one) 
11. I'm a Pisces and I fit a lot of the typical descriptions of that sign, good and bad!


11 Q’s from Laura

1. What is your earliest childhood memory?
I'm about 9 months old and in a baby walker for the first time, in my brother's room with the purple walls, my feet touch the ground and I can MOVE independently... there is a jingling sound as I move, my hands are holding orange plastic, the sensation is pure JOY!
2. Did you ever eat or drink anything in the store and paid for it later, instead of the other way around?
No but sometimes I'd like to do this when I'm really hungry and shopping!
3. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
I adore our tortoiseshell cat who is turning 4 this year. I'd love to have a giant aquarium too, with every imaginable kind of sea creature in it.
4. What would the title of your biography be called?
Busy bee (this was my husband's suggestion!)
5. If you could be anyone else for one day, who would you pick?
I'd love to be a stunt pilot for the day.
6. Do you have any party tricks up your sleeve?
No, but I love to watch other peoples'! I'm a good audience.
7. Are you a sweet or savory type?
Most definitely sweet! But I also love the two together, like pretzels in ice-cream.
8. Growing up did you have a special item you were really attached too?
My comforters were ribbons which I called "silkies". I also had an owl, a little green car, a snoopy and a little green coat I loved (still have them all except the car).
9. Are you good at remembering your dreams?
It goes in phases. Although I often have crazy vivid dreams, I tend to forget them if I have a busy morning.
10. Do you breath air in, out or both ways when you whistle?
Both (but I am a pathetic whistler and get laughed at my my mum and husband if I allow myself a few little peeps! They are both expert whistlers who can do trills and everything, and are quite competitive with each other!)
11. Do you give names to inanimate objects you own?
I never think to do this but I like the idea of it!

1. Do you have a favourite item of clothing for any reason?
2. How do you get back to sleep if you wake up in the night?
3. What do you most love about your body?
4. If could receive one present of a craft or art material/supply what would it be?
5. When did you last lie outside, looking up at the night sky?
6. When did you last swim in the sea/ocean?
7. What's your morning wake-up essential?
8. Who were you in a former life?
9. What's your porn star name (name of first pet + name of first street where you lived - I'm Ameliaranne Sharon Minster by the way!)?
10. What do you have a collection of?
