    Default 5 things and a quirk

    Okay so I'm gonna try to start a new game for us newbies (yes me included! ). Sometimes it's hard to know what to say when you first sign up, so hopefully this helps a bit. Fingers crossed at least a few of you join in...

    The idea is you share 5 'normal', known or expected things about yourself and 1 thing that most people wouldn't expect. Here's mine...

    5 Things
    1. I'm single, in my mid-30s and live on my own with 3 cats (I'm told I don't get the official crazy cat lady badge till I reach 40 and at least a ration of cats:humans 5:1).
    2. I'm an introvert and I like staying in, I like to read and watch dvds.
    3. I'm a geek and like that I get to work online, from home.
    4. I'm a procrastinator and have to force routine and discipline on myself to get anything done.
    5. I'm an online shopping addict, so many clothes & shoes... eep!

    And my quirk is...

    I'm training to play roller derby, wheeee!



    Okay, the 5 things was a little tricky, if you're having trouble, just do 3

    Hi! Sounds like a good idea, I'm a newbie too :-)

    ok so...
    1. I'm married (13years) with a fly in flyout husband who's away 3wks home 3wks.
    2. I have two gorgeous children who I totally adore and who at the same time drive me completely crazy!
    3. I have two dogs who run my back yard, one of which I think has some attention issues, and two cats who run my house (in competition with the kids)
    4. I work 20hours a week and am constantly amazed that single parents can work full time and still manage to vacuum their houses frequently
    5. Im a vegetarian.

    My quirk is.... I totally love that nasty series Sons of Anarchy... infact I could be addicted

    Hi, well here goes,

    1. I've been with my husband for 13 years, married for 1.
    2. I love animals, especially horses, dogs, frogs, elephants, eagles.... Ok so I love animals.
    3. I run a wholesale/production nursery with my husband which we took over 8 years ago.
    4. I have 1 dog that my parents refer to as their fluffy grandchild, 1 snake, and a flock of crazy chickens who drive me mad.
    5. I'm a bit of a foodie and health nut.

    My quirk - I dreamed of being an actress, studied to become a journalist, became a nursery owner, and now I'm studying to become a Trainer/Assessor for trainees and apprentices. Oh and I have a secret love for that show Escape to the Country

    Hi

    1. I'm engaged to an amazingly patient man.
    2. Our 7yr old son is very intelligent, resulting in endless questions which I'm sure are contributing to my insanity levels!
    3. I love animals- seriously missing horse riding at the moment- and we have a very spoilt kitty fluff who is basically another child.
    4. I am excellent at procrastination (something bubhub makes easier)!
    5. I am a nerd and love video games- DS has gotten me playing Minecraft with him now!

    And the quirky... I'm hyper-flexible but I can't touch my toes!

    Hi guys. I like the idea of this thread.
    ok
    1. I've been in a de-facto relationship for 6 years now.
    2. 4 of those years have been spend building a new house together...which was fun (insert sarcastic look here) and very much tested our relationship
    3. My partner has two young chidren from his previous marriage that we share custody of. They are lovely.
    4. We're expecting our first child together in May (a suprise baby)
    5. I'm one of those weirdos who loves her job, can be quite a career-driven workaholic and am very nervous of the concept of being a full time mum and giving up work opportunities for the next year or more.

    My quirk....hmmmm........I'm a fully qualified psychologist but yet to enter that field of work (love my current job too much). I would love to study Family Law one day....though there are not enough hours in the day for that too
