    Ooh oh oh.. and I can (99% of the time) correctly guess which window they will look through on Play School! I always say it out loud and look over at DD with a smug smile on my face who of course has no freaking idea what the hell I'm smiling at cos she's 15 months old

    I can collate faster than most. It's because as a child I worked in my parents factory on school holidays and I did a lot of collating (as in piles and piles and PILES of it). I used to get paid about $10-$15 a day. Big bucks in those days but sometimes when you get shown 3 x piles of newly printed paper, each about a metre high and numbered that you have to collate to make invoice books it's not terribly inspiring.

    I can also touch type but that's not useless, I use it every day!! I can't actually type if I look at the keys.

    My Mum used to be a Pitmans shorthand teacher and my exH had to learn short hand when he trained to be a journalist. It's very handy if you ever have to take minutes of a meeting.

    I can make this totally authentic rabbit face where I tuck all my bottom lip behind my top lip and my top lip sort of goes into thus square and I wriggle my nose and put my hands up on top of my head as ears .

    I never forget a face.

    I also know lots of useless facts. I'm also good at a trivia night...lol
