verykerryberry Me and my lovely granny catching up last week, plus 20 things about me tagged by @zakkaart @whynotsewquilts and @quarterinchmark 1. Eldest of 3 and always fiercely independent.2.I practice mindful meditation daily- I don't always like it but it does me good. 3. I was badly affected by RSI 10yrs ago and stopped sewing. When I returned the sewing world had exploded via the internet. 4. I am a skilled knitter and really miss it but it was a big factor in developing RSI. 5.I've been sewing since I was tiny, started dressmaking around the age of 10. 6. I love tech and gadgets and if I had the income I would be a keen and early adopter of new technology. 7. Jan/Feb/Mar are always hard months. 8. I have a small group of close friends-I'm very loyal to my closest friends. 9.My degree was in English Literature, I especially liked metaphysical poets like John Donne. 10. I am a qualified primary teacher. 11. I sing for my day job- that's less glamorous than it sounds. I work with children 0-4yrs. 12. I play at least 5 musical instruments to a reasonable level but RSI limited my playing and still does. 13. I don't eat meat. 14. I love Pilates, I go to two classes a week plus yoga- stretching is very important for a sewist! 15.I have had to ring 999 emergency 3 times in my life-for a violent assault, for my husband when his pacemaker failed (he's fine now) and finding a elderly man in the final stages of death when I came to walk his dog. I am calm and practical in an emergency-maybe it's all that practice. 16. I failed my driving test four times. I passed eventually but I still hate driving. 17. Pets are a big part of our family-getting a dog was a life changer- I miss the departed ones v deeply. 18. Fanatical about radio- spoken word and music. Access to radio in all rooms in our little house. 19. Love music and frequently get a new song that I play over and over-the last one was Gregory Porter, Water Under Bridges. 20. Family is everything-no one died wishing they'd worked harder! Tagging @sewsweetness and @messyjesse1 if they want to and haven't already taken part! 7d
