The Versatile Blogger Award 2


I was very excited last night to receive my first official “tag” for here, my more personal blog, I have had many for Baby Signing Mummy but I always try to stay true to that blog being a business blog and often have to decline the “tags” – but no more! So a huge thank you to the very fabulous Kelly Brett from Writings, Ramblings and Reviews for tagging me in the Versatile Blogger Award Meme – whereby I have to share 5 random facts about myself…so did you know?

Random Fact #1 We live in an old converted building that used to be used for building parts for aeroplanes. Our apartment is very close to the Farnborough International Airport which most stars use for their private jets. No we don’t have anyone around for tea!

Random Fact #2 One of my best friends is a man called Phil Gallagher….I think the rest of the parenting world knows him as Mister Maker, he was a rather popular guest at our wedding last year.

Two of my best friends and brother

Random Fact #3 I spoke to Phillip Scofield on the phone during Going Live (I must have been about 10) when he rang to speak to my brother, I had nominated my brother for Live Line because he had dislocated his knee whilst at a school disco and had been in hospital for over a week and then had to wear a leg brace for three months. He received an award for “disco-lating” his knee.

Random Fact #4 I once had an anaphylaxis to penicillin whilst I was in charge of a children’s ward on a night shift. My last memory was hearing someone with very bad breathing difficulties and thinking I must call the SHO to come and review that child. The noise was coming from me. Luckily one of my best friends was working that night and Mr Adrian Smith jumped into action and I was looked after by the best paediatric response team ever. Needless to say when I was recovering on an adult ward the next day the Adult Resus Team were non too pleased that a Paediatric Crash Call had been put out rather than an adults. Annoyingly that evening we had started the shift by telling our paed SHO that we would play “Bleep Bingo” with him at some point in the night. Vicky just wanted to win.

The man who honestly did save my life.

Random Fact #5 If you know me well this is not so much of a random fact, for those of you who are getting to know me, I am a MASSIVE Harry Potter fan. There is nothing I do not know about the books, the films or any character or would not do to learn, read or watch more. I even own my own wand. It did of course choose me whilst I was in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida for my Non-Hen Do with Jackie. We spent the entire day just soaking up the atmosphere in Hogsmede and then spent the evening in the cinema watching The Deathly Hallows Part 1. When the last film was released we had tickets to see it being shown 3 times in the same day. M.A.S.S.I.V.E  Fan.

So there you have it 5 random facts about me! Hope you found them interesting? So now I am to Tag Five others to continue the meme, so as I am still new to this personal blogging I am only just getting to know other bloggers so I hope you don’t mind if I tag you!

So I tag………

      Thank you, Adrian was already one of my best friends before that night, now I am just always so very grateful to him! I tired to come up with some previously unknown facts, even my husband didn’t know the Going Live one!!
