I am...

My lovely friend, Pat, at Here, There and Everywhere devised this meme/game from a book she was reading, and I thought I would give it a go. It turns out to be not as easy as I thought.

Make a list of 20 things beginning with "I am". Do not drop the "a".. it must read: I am a...)

1. I am a woman, wife, mother and grandmother.
2. I am a person who questions things.
3. I am a reader.
4. I am a lover of soup.
5. I am a TV fan.
6. I am a gardener.
7. I am a good listener.
8. I am a collector of jazzy socks.
9. I am a person who likes to please.
10. I am a person who is not good at saying 'no'.
11. I am a person who tries to tolerate fools but has limited success.
12. I am a fan of winter.
13. I am a person who loves the sea.
14. I am a person who sometimes needs to take a deep breath and ignore a slight or something that has nothing to do with me.
15. I am a cook.
16. I am a person whose closest friends are online.
17. I am a KFC junkie.
18. I am a person who survives on 5 to 6 hours sleep a night.
19. I am a person who can be, as my grandma used to say, 'daft as a brush'.
20. I am a citizen of the planet, Earth... and isn't it beautiful at this time of year:

I can't get over how fast you and Debi did this!! I guess I don't know who or what I am it took me 2 weeks to do mine!

We have quite a few things in common. For a few years now I too have been a person who survives on 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night,

What a great idea this is, very focusing for the mind.

I shall be having a go at completing it, but probably not until tonight, as I am out volunteering for most of the day.

Love the photo's, by the way

If you substitute owl earrings and Jordan's Crunchy Nut for jazzy socks and KFC then your list could apply to me too. Apart from, I would dearly love to get more than 6 hours sleep a night but it's just not happening!

Pat: No, that's not me... it could be, I have a red fleece like that, but it's not. I wanted to ask the woman to move ;-) but actually I think it suits the mood having her there like that.

Margaret: There was something in the Telegraph last week about it being better for older women to have 5 to 6 hours sleep rather than 7 to 8. I'm not sure why now but it seems it's nothing to worry about.

fiction-books: yours was a very interesting list. Glad you like the photos. We're so lucky here in the SW that're plenty of photogenic spots.

LizF: at least Jordan's crunchy nut is healthy! LOL. I have to say that I don't allow myself much more than 2 or 3 KFCs a year as I know how bad it is for you.

DesLily said...

well then.. i will clone her out! lol

I like this idea, Cath. I think I'm going to do it too. I especially enjoyed you putting down you like soup, and gardening, and books! It gives an interesting picture of a person, doesn't it? Thanks for sharing it with us!

Cath said...

Susan: look forward to your answers. I tried to be honest as I feel I have a lot of faults. More than I admitted to here sadly. LOL.
