19 I am a very low maintenance loyal friend & easily entertained
20 My favourite food is Japanese
21 My childhood was a fairy tale & I try to replicate that happiness, love & security with my children
22 My sister & I are chalk & cheese, I’m much more like my brothers
23 My father reckons I can talk under water with my mouth full of marbles
24 My favourite patchwork combination involves spots, stripes, florals & plaid
25 My earliest memory is swimming in our family pool aged 2 or 3

Julie also tagged Rachel from Little Angel Little Devil & Shop Handmade too!!

Great post Jen, very interesting. x

Tania McCartney said...

You gorgeous girl. LOVED learning more about you. FUN! Mwah! x

Stacey said...

Ooh thanks for the tag! So nice to find out a bit more about you, although I did already know a few of those things.
Bear Grylls!! Now he is an action man - and one that seems to take his clothes off at any given opportunity.....

Thanks for sharing! I did one of these posts recently.
Wow! You've been around the world 13 times on holidays!! I'm also a strong believer in family, I'm so emotional with tears in my eyes at all the special occasions where my boys shine. I too have trouble switching off at night when it is sleep time!! This is just so frustrating.
I love all your work in preparation for the markets - so clever are you!

Stacey - i think that is why i like him so much, he is SO like my husband!! Although my husband refuses to believe he is really special forces or special air service trained & the real deal. I tell him "shush, Bear is talking" & the children watch him & say "oh, that's what Dad would do". Yes, not including the parachuting, that was banned once we were married, no more leaping out of planes for my husband. Love Posie

I loved reading your 25 things!

And just quietly I knew Stacey would say something about Bear Grylls! (I have a secret crush on him too. How could you not love a man who gets his kit off to deliberately jump into peat bog?!)

I do believe that he is Special Forces trained; I just don't believe all the situations he puts himself into. Really, who needs to sleep inside a dead camel!! The episode in the Kimberley’s is a funny one to watch for anyone that has lived in the North. Mr Posie

See now i'm communicating with my husband through my blog comments!! Let's just all agree, Bear Grylls is awesome, even better after a good long shower. Love Posie

Isn't carpal tunnel the worst! I've had it since I was pregnant with the twins - very annoying.
