I've been tagged by Liz for the 8 random facts meme:

It's quite hard to think of 8 random facts about myself! But here goes :

1. My mother died of cancer when I was 12 years old. It runs in my family, and so everyone around me freaks out a little when someone gets ill.

2. I have a thing for boys with british accents... unfortunately, neither my partner or any ex's have one.. haha

3. I am uber competitive - I don't like to lose, and I don't like having poor players on my team

4. I am still too embarassed to be seen knitting in public (bar stitch'n'bitch and that one day where I knitted in the common room at work).

5. I have a shoe addiction. I have about 60 pairs of shoes - some which I have never worn before

6. I like to sleep with my balcony door open - it gives me lovely fresh air in the morning.

7. I learnt italian, japanese and chinese as a child... and am hopeless at all of them

8. I have a phobia of fires. When I was in Year 8, my school campsite burnt down and bus caught on fire. Ever since, I always examine potential places where fires might start and plan an escape route at the start.

Some of your facts are spookily similar to some things about me that you would never have known! I too don't like knitting in public, I wish there was a stichnbitch near me though, it might help me get over that one!! My husband has a (northern) english accent, but I do like American accents I have to say. Grass is always greener!!!
