Hiya! I hope you like my ramblings and ponderings - any and all constructive criticism is pretty much guaranteed to be met with a 'yay!' Please note British English spellings ;)

Me in Threes

June 30, 2015

PROMPT: YOU in threes


Three quirks or idiosyncrasies.

  1. I binge on satsumas when in distress
  2. I bob when I am happy (a friend of mine says it looks like I'm wagging my tale)
  3. I panic at the sound of the phone ringing

Three adjectives your family would use to describe you.

According to my mum I am:

  1. Cheerful
  2. Self-contained
  3. Creative

Three adjectives you would use.

  1. Passionate
  2. Bookish
  3. Observant

Three things about you that very few people know

  1. Although I am renowned for my clutteredness, I like nothing better than to spend a happy morning organising my bookshelves (and also other people's, if they will allow me).
  2. The first piece of writing I ever finished was a 'how to look after your cat' guide for one of my mum's colleagues. I have never owned a cat.
  3. My preferred method of exercise is dance classes in the village hall. My friend and I go together and we are the youngest there by around thirty years. ( We are also the least nimble.)

Three things that make your life singular/ unusual

  1. Half my family live 7,500 miles away in South Africa (I'm in Britain)
  2. My father is living as a mad hermit in Bolivia
  3. Up until quite recently we let our guinea pigs run around the ground floor of the house. They used to toddle up to the fridge for food. (Then we got a dog)

Three specific physical descriptions

  1. My eyes are different colours - one green, one blue
  2. I have matching birthmarks on my left elbow and on my waist
  3. I am tall, but it is because of my long, curved 'Malabar spine' (my legs are of normal length)

Three flaws

  1. I over-analyse absolutely EVERYTHING. Life is exhausting. 
  2. I can often be a real micromaniac and have a crushing fear of rejection, so sometimes come across a little cold.
  3. I can get quite hot-headed and find it difficult to back down in arguments.

Three favourites

  1. 'Howl's Moving Castle' by Diana Wynne Jones.
  2. The rushing and crashing of leaves in the wind.
  3. A really nice, juicy grape (or twenty)

Three pet peeves

  1. Apathy and passiveness
  2. Two-facedness
  3. Comma splicing
