Meme of five facts about me

I’ve been tagged by Donna from Made In Heaven to list five facts about me. Thank you Donna for the meme :)

These are the rules: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules. 2. Share 5 facts about yourself 3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them). 4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their Blogs.

Here are five facts about me *eek*.

1) I am the only girl in my family and I have three older brothers, I hate to admit but I was quite a tomboy as a child, my little dolls pram used to be tied to the back of a bike and used as a chariot :D

2) I am in very early retirement and I’m what you’d call a Domestic Goddess now lol. I worked in the care sector and used to be a manager for a large residential home.

3) My favourite film of all time has to be Pretty Woman it must be the romantic in me!

4) One of my favourite past times is browsing in second hand bookshops for out of print cookbooks.

5) I only had one cookbook for about 20 years and now in the last 4 years I have well over 300 in my collection. Have I used them all yet I hear you ask? *Cough*, lets just say I’m working my way through them little by little ;)

Now I have to tag five people, there is no pressure; I fully understand how hectic it can be at times, so please take your time on this!

I would like to tag for this meme

Aww, I've been waiting for this moment lol, it's sad but pathetically, true! Am honoured to be tagged and my mind is already buzzing with what facts about myself I shall reveal.

Oh and 300+ cookbooks and I thought I was bad with just about 25!

Donna said...

Rosie said...

Hi Pixie, I am SO pleased you will enjoy your meme! I felt just as you do on my very first meme too! :)

Teehhee I wasn't joking on my profile about having a fondness or should I say an addiction for cookery books - I am naughty!

I look forward to reading all your five facts :D

Hi Donna,It's been a real pleasure to do this meme sweetie! Oh yes three brothers no wonder I was a tomboy lol It's so much fun to go hunting in used book stores I agree :D

Nice to know more about you Rosie :) Ahh Pretty Woman, that's my favourite too!

Cakelaw said...

Pretty Woman is one of my favourite movies too - especially the scene where Richard Gere unexpectedly snaps the necklace box down, and Julia Roberts' gasp of surprise and laugh is real (it wasn't in the script!).

Rosie said...

Hi Namratha it’s good to know I’m not the only one who just loves that film too :) I have added you to my blogroll too :)

Hi Cakelaw, I never knew that laugh wasn’t in the script. I sat watching this film again only this week while home-a-lone lol

Always lovely to *see* you both here :)
