I've been tagged! Just a little bit of random fun

Wow, I've never been tagged before and this week I've been tagged by Suzanne (Always Ours). Her blog is fairly new and I must say I really enjoy reading her updates!

There are number of rules to being tagged...
1. Link to the person who tagged you (visit Suzanne's blog here)
2. Post the rules
3. Share seven random or weird facts about yourself
4. Tag 7 random people at the end of the post with their links
5. Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Now for 7 random or weird facts about me (well, not sure if you would find them weird or random, or both, but anyway):

Fact 1 - I can speak two languages fluently (Afrikaans and English, with Afrikaans being my first language) (although my South African followers won't find this very random or weird) and say a few phrases in Sesotho and hello in Mandarin

Fact 2 - When I was little I used to eat tomato sauce (ketchup) on a sandwich

Fact 3 - I love doing crosstitch (but haven't for a while)

Fact 4 - I hate anything that was naturally born with 6 feet or more (especially spiders), so when we moved into a rental home in Khandallah it was like living in my worst nightmare - in the first 2 weeks we discovered 12 really big, gross spiders living in our house.

Fact 5 - When I was around 13, I loved writing poetry and even once tried to get some of my poems published which didn't happen (oh well, it was worth a try...).

Fact 6 - I hate shoe- and clothes shopping (except for the kids)

Fact 7 - I don't drink coffee (the last time I drank a cup of coffee was when I was around 6 and one day declared that I would be drinking tea from then on), now I pretty much only drink hot chocolate

It's pretty hard choosing only 7 to tag as I follow so many blogs on a daily basis. So here goes and in no particular order I tag:

1. Angus at Life with Leukemia

2. Annie from Living with CML

3. Kristy from Passion for Purple

4. Del from Super Relish

5. Renee from Life with my Special Ks

6. Kristie from Not Quite What I had Planned

7. Annie Fox

You don't like shoe and clothing shopping? Its my most favorite thing, nothing like a bit of selfish retail therapy to get me all chirpy. :-)

Ha! I love it. Can't stand shopping either. I tend to do the online thing if I can. No crowds or rude people or long lines...sigh.
