Sometimes I wish I knew more about my mom (Granny) and dad (Grandpa) – their quirks, their feelings, their experiences etc, and while there’s still time to learn and ask questions from Grandpa, unfortunately Granny’s current health state doesn’t allow me to know her or find out much more than I already do. I want you to know me too (not everything though – especially what i got up to when I was 16 and 17), so I thought I’d use this forum to start letting you know a bit more about me, no matter how random. I found this fun meme, 50 Questions, so based this blog around it. A couple of the questions were a bit too American, so it’s now become 47 Questions.
