One of the many tags I haven't done just lately has been this: the 'seven things you never knew about me' (and probably never wanted to) meme. This was bestowed upon me by MummyMatters (and possibly by several others... sorry if I've forgotten!) and makes fascinating reading when other people do it. Who'd have thought, for example, that SuperSingleMum has never once been on a date? Or that Jo Middleton has... you know, *done it* on top of Glastonbury Tor? Or that Linda Jones was once sacked by Poundstretcher? I know, it's incredible. And frankly, faced with revelations of that calibre it's no wonder it's taken me this long to pluck up courage to have a go at the Kreativ Blogger Challenge.
In fact, I'm not sure that I have... plucked up courage, that is. For a start, although there are probably seven hundred things you don't know about me and I've not divulged before, I'm not sure that you'd want to know what they are. Second, I'm not sure I'm prepared to disclose the kind of things that might make people interested. I mean, who wants to know what I once wore beneath my cassock as a chorister, or what happened when I got lost backstage at the Royal Albert Hall? And I'm darned if I'm telling everyone what happened when I went swimming in the sea on New Year's Eve, or even why I'd been thrown out of a nightclub earlier that evening. I suppose I might, possibly pluck up courage, one day, to tell you all about the time, some years ago, when I performed 'Delilah' in a Karaoke competition but you'll never get me to reveal whose knickers were thrown on to the stage. And as for that time on the boat to Zeebrugge, well I can't even remember that myself...
So, that's seven things I'm not telling. What about you? Are you prepared to bare all or are there certain places that you'd never go to on a blog? Are you a compulsive sharer, getting it off your chest on a regular basis?
Or are there some secrets that you'll carry to the grave?
