I've seen what fun everyone has been having with the new meme that's doing the rounds, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Heaven knows, there can't be much left that you don't know about me by now, but here goes anyway.

Eight things I am passionate about:

2 My friends
3 Equality
4 Education
5 Music
6 Crisps
7 Books of all kinds
8 Perfume (strange one, huh?)

Eight things I want to do before I die:

Excellent! So many people seem to want to write a novel these days! I hope they all do. Including me!!

Saying "Of course you can come and see me" is one of those things I say often and really wish I hadn't.

I hope so too, Crystal. Am dashing over to yours because you've been posting like mad & I need to catch up

Nice list Tina, and reading it made me realise I'd forgotten the 8Songs I Listen to Over and Over.

I've put them on now, but they aren't as posh as yours, obviously.
