Here goes, 7 things about moi and be warned they re a bit random!!

1.Once while on holiday in Florida,friends and I decided to go water skiing...Nothing odd about that you re thinking,only I can't swim a stroke ,still I managed to do it with the aid of a buoyancy suit (MR BLOB BY),not a good look I can assure you when you re trying to impress the boys.
Just to let you know I saw a great many fish that day,also the man in the boat hooked me back on to said speed boat by a great metal hook ,SO GLAMOROUS.

2.I dislike,fisherman friends lozenges,Liquorice and peanut butter with a passion ,not all together of course eughhhh !!!

3.I once watched a shuttle launch from cape Canaveral,which was one of the most amazing things I'd ever seen ...to think were it was going, fantastic.

4.whilst visiting Holland,a friend asked if I fancied a ride on his motorbike,after saying yeah that'll be great ,I instally started to regret it ,when around the corner came a Harley Davidson Electra glide.
Of we went ,It was fab at first,just going at a nice speed ,UNTIL THE MOTORWAY and that's when my nightmare  began as he started to fly down the road at a speed of 90mph with me screaming like a banshee to slow down .....when he finally stopped I was like a gibbering wreck and thru up at his feet.
Amanda  and speed don't mix

5.I had my first baby when I was 31 and my 4th and last baby when I  was 37 = busy busy busy
They are my world and GREATEST EVER ACHIEVEMENT X

6.When I was 16 and at college,a 5 day trip to Paris was organised ,I was training to be a hairdresser and the reason of the trip was a visit to the L'oreal labs and to see some hair shows,just before we were due to travel our travel agent informed us that the hotel was over booked,but not to worry they had got us booked in somewhere else ,by us I mean the 30 other hairdressing students.
After a long day of travelling our coach driver drove us to our hotel ,we couldn't believe our eyes we were right behind the moulin rouge right  slap bang into a world of things my 16 yr old eyes had not seen.
The hotel was all red velvet,and hidden dark corners and lots of spiral iron stairs I don't think the decor had been changed for a 100 yrs can you imagine 30 girls aged 16 /21 in this hotel,It was a totall eyeopener and our walks along the nearby streets of this hotel.
 Well lets just say I learnt a lot from my first visit to Paris.

7.As soon has I set foot on a boat whether it be ferry or rowing boat ,I instantly feel sea sick!!!

                                        THE END .....Hope you haven't all fell asleep after that ??

I am certainly most wide awake - loved reading your facts! The Harley Davidson story made me laugh, and I can imagine the eyes like saucers on the Paris trip! Fishermen's Friends, licorice and peanut butter together is actually really delicious, though the varied textures are a bit challenging all together...

Congrats on your blog award :)

I also dislike the taste of fisherman friends as well..though I must admit I quite like liquorice and peanut butter (but also not together :P).
The trip to Paris sure sounded like a learning experience..:)
