it's all about me

I was tagged almost (ahem) a month ago by jodi, to write six quirky things about myself. Apparently I'm more slow than quirky, because it's taken me this long to get around to doing it. I did this meme a while back, but I think I can manage a few more random things... 1. I have my husband to thank for much of my fabric stash. He often comes home from work with a bag full of goodness for me, and I get all the credit for having such great fabric.
2. I have an intense fear of sinking ships, shipwrecks, in fact anything that's under the water that shouldn't be. Makes me shudder just thinking about it. Arran thinks it's a past life thing.
3. I also dislike those big tankers that just sit on the horizon, and then turn the other way when you're not looking, like it never actually happened. Sneaky buggers.
4. I can't drive a manual car. I just don't see the point.
5. All three of our boys were born with one blocked tear duct. Fin's cleared up after a year, willow's only took a couple of months, and jasper's took about seven months. They all had green gungy stuff in the eye constantly, and everyone always thought they had conjunctivitis, and I was constantly explaining what it was. When fin was a baby, I had doctors trying to tell me that it would need to be operated on to clear it, but we patiently waited for a year and it went away by itself, and so it did with willow and jasper as well, so if there's one little bit of advice I can pass on, it's that these things really can fix themselves without intervention.
6. I give the impression of being someone who doesn't swear a lot, but in actual fact, I'm just a gutter mouth. I've had to curb my swearing quite a bit lately, as one middle-sized child has become quite fond of it, but I do still swear when I'm driving. Can't help it. I especially hate it when I'm trying to do a reverse park in the main street and a car drives right up behind me so I can't get in. Hate that.

Now, let's see, who to tag?
How about leah, fi, rach, julie, and anyone else who's interested. Oh yeah, the rules:
1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Mention the rules
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself
4) Tag six other bloggers by linking to them
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged
