goat 2


this is a character I did a while back and he was used on the CBBC website for the story competition.
I still like him and have the bones of a story involving this character as well as others.
Like much of my self promo work though, it'll likely go unfinished- but I live in hope!

Anyway, working on this a little while back and should do something a bit more presentable with it at some point...

8 random things about me

I've been tagged by Penny & Toby to tell you 8 random things about me:
http://www.naturalattrill.blogspot.com

here are the "rules"
1. Let others know who tagged you.
2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

I'm tagging:
http://heavenlyjewellery.blogspot.com/

http://mollychicken.blogs.com/

http://printpattern.blogspot.com/

http://mylittlemochi.typepad.com/

http://life-of-pea.blogspot.com/



I've not got anyone else to tag as others have tagged them already!

so here goes:
1. I have a slightly heart shaped birthmark on the bottom half of my right cheek which looks like a group of freckles. Lots of people think it's a dirty mark on my face!!

2. My parents moved to Canada when I was 1 years old and we lived there for nearly 8 years. As a result I have a twang in my accent and most people swear I'm Irish!! Even Irish people!!

3. I got married at the Little White Chapel, Las Vegas in a drive through wedding,. We had a red Mustang convertible. It was fab and I cried through the whole ceremony. My hubbie though I didn't want to go through with it! he he!

4. I am a devoted veggie. When I was 17 I saw a Greenpeace roadshow video on Dolphins-cried my eyes out at the injustice and cruelty and decided there and then I'd not eat animals again.

5. I am a left hander.

6. I love cold potato, vinegar and mayo sandwiches!! Yum!

7. When I was pregnant with my daughter I had my first scan and asked what the dark circle was I could see. Turned out to be a big cyst on my ovary size of an orange and I had to go into hospital and have it removed a week later. I was 14 weeks pregnant. I hate to think what would have happened if I hadn't had a scan. I had no symptoms. Luckily everything turned out fine. My daughter was safe (thankfully) and came out perfect! She was breach the whole pregnancy so I ended up having to have a Cesarean. So I had to have another cut to my belly on the same path and now I've got a lovely big vertical dip on my belly to remind me.

8. I have a bit of a habit of doing beat box noises. Even got my daughter at it!!
