Six Questions

Kate @Pickle bums tagged me for this a while ago

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
Each player answers the questions about themselves.
At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Working part time (shiftwork) as a registered nurse in Paediatric (Children's) ward and in my husband's business and mum to a preschooler 4yr going on 5 (The Teen man)

What are 6 things on my to-do list for today (tomorrow)?

1. Play with Brothers and keep them out of Dad's way.
2.Stuff for Tool man's Business
3. Catchup on my blog /email housekeeping and
4. Real Housekeeping unfortunately
5. Cook something special for lunch & dinner. Tool man is building our awning
6. Send Brothers party invitations by email and plan Teen's party.

Snacks I enjoy?

Rocky Road, Lindt Balls or any chocolate,Yogurt, fruit, pretzel sticks and dips, nuts, cheese and crackers, popcorn, cake, food ... food ... how many more snacks do you want

Things I would do if I were a billionaire?

Invest half the money, give half away asap to various charities and family & friends.I would give money to help charities help others get loans to start their business like Ozfam etc (cows/horses/chickens /farming equipment etc). I know everything can't be solved with just a billion but the interest/investment earnings would be enough to keep on helping people help a lot other people. Make assisted conception more accessible and affordable.

Places I have lived?
- I have always lived in same area of 30km radius almost of Sydney
So boring so thinking outside the square ..
22 years plus with my family in a small 3br house (well 15 yrs same house)
1 year in a shared house with 2 girlfriends
2 years in a 3 car garage the Tool man converted to flat (as newly weds).
2 years in a renovated house
6 years in a New house we built from scratch -around the same time we adopted our son we were half way through completing.
1 year in a 30ft caravan and an annexe (but not in Caravan /Trailer Park - it was on 5 acres with a 40ft shed )
4 years in a 2 br very ugly old house so we could work from home.
Now we have lived almost 4yrs a modern 4 bedroom house in semi rural suburban area.
The teen man went to same small school all through his primary years despite 3 house moves.

Hi, Trish!
The funny thing is that I read your meme the other day and thought it was a really cool one...but I didn't notice that you had tagged me! LOL!

I'm on it right now...Hopefully I'll have it posted this morning. Thanks for the tag! :)

Hi Trish :)
I didn't notice you'd tagged me until today! Thank you, my fellow Aussiemumblogger.

I'll have to think about my answers to these. I think I was sleeping ten years ago, but I'll have to check...

Jane @ Kidzarama said...

And I don't know why, but I always thought you were in Perth!

We're practically neighbours... ;)
