    Default Something interesting...

    How's my clickbait thread title?

    I think we need some more new threads in this here place for us all to play with, so here is my contribution..

    I was just reading another thread and saw @Tainted mentioned living in Buddhist countries for half of her childhood, and I thought to myself 'that's interesting, I never knew that about her!'

    Then I thought 'I wonder what other interesting little nuggets of information I can find out about hubbers.'

    So...what is something interesting about you?

    Now I have to come up with something!

    Ok, the first thing I can think of is that I have three half siblings (same father) who live in England and are much younger. When I got back in touch with my dad when I was about 20, he sent me pictures of 'his three kids' and they were 8, 5 and 3. They each looked exactly like I had done at that age. I think that's kind of interesting.

    Interesting fact about me. The Dr's tried everything in their power to have mum abort me, right up to the week i was born. She was put in hospital at 6 weeks and wasn't allowed to even sit up in bed until after I was born.
    Edited to say she had heart problems.

    LLH I can't get my head around yours. You have a sister don't you? Is she older or younger? Was it the same for her?
    @Tamtam what characters? That's so awesome!

    My great, great, great grandfather was "Clancy Of The Overflow". My Granny met Banjo Patterson at the races in Sydney once and he confirmed it.

    Awesome! Big Banjo fan here- mulga bill's bicycle is one of the first poems I ever learnt.

    My fact? I walked on my toes until I was 10. So many doctors told my parents I would grow out of it. My school constantly hassled my mum asking "what's wrong with her?" A deputy at the school pulled me out of class one day and made me walk up and down the pavement so she could look at me feet/gait. Eventually a hospital physio realised the tendons in my ankles were too short and I had to have them stretched. I have had rubbish balance and coordination ever since. They should have let me be lol!

    I speak fluent Norwegian 🇳🇴 Most of Norway's population speak fluent English, so it's fairly useless knowing how to speak it, but fun nonetheless. I was an exchange student there
