Tagged: 6 Random Things

The lovely Biba of Inspiration Bubble tagged me to share 6 random facts about myself. I've been trying to think of 6 interesting facts, but haven't got very far. Inspired by Biba, who shared a picture of herself as part of her '6 facts' post, here is one of Anthony and me:
This is picture is just over a year old. Back in those days I still believed in sunbeds. Oh how I wish they weren't so dangerous. I'd get one installed at home. Here goes with my more or less random facts:

1. I grew up in a really beautiful town called Lindau, in the south of Germany. I speak German fluently, and really enjoyed my time there and visit my family in Germany as often as possible.

2. As part of growing up so close to the alps I learnt to ski when I was 5. Whilst I'm not a sporty person at all, I really enjoy skiing, and am not actually too bad at it. Picture belows show me, on the left, and my lovely stepsister Anna on the right.

And here are my brother Williams and I trying to chose a drink in a mountain top restaurant/chalet type affair. As you can see we are taking this task very seriously. This picture was taken about 2 years ago. William now has a full beard.

3. I have two brothers, and two stepsisters. We are all between the ages of 20 and 25, and we have a lot of fun. (I'm the oldest. boohoo.)

4. I used to be really into online gaming. It ended up being too time consuming, but I met some really awesome people, and we had a lot of fun (hazy memories of fun holidays in Sweden and Denmark, involving A LOT of Tuborg).

5. I am trying to learn to play golf. Anthony is a very patient coach, but I get pretty stroppy if I'm having a bad day with it. Most notably, when I was conned into playing a whole round of golf on a proper course. I'm looking forward to when the weather gets better so we can resume my learning. (I'm not much better at mini golf!)

6. I have watched every single episode of Grey's Anatomy. And Friends, and Sex and the City. And America's Next Top Model. It's really quite sad. Whilst I know that the shows are pretty hollow, I still really enjoy watching them. Guilty pleasure I guess.

I would like to tag the following Ladies to share 6 random facts about themselves:

Kristin of Kristin Made Simple. (Although she is a pretty busy lady at the moment. You're making me feel bad with all that gym going!:)

Alison of Banjolele. (I discovered Alison's blog recently through a comment she left here, and I really like her taste!)

Michelle of Sofluid. (Michelle and I are quasi-related, and her blog is really inspiring. A virtual kick up the backside - in a good way!)

Wow, what a wonderful place to have grown up! I love Germany. My sister lived and worked in Germany for a year when she was 18... She was fluent in German, but I think she has lost it a bit over the years... I on the other hand speak French, although I want to learn German (I'm trying to teach myself).

He he, we are sort of quasi-related, aren't we. I'd say we were cousin-in-laws (well, to be!)

Thanks for tagging me! That's the first time I've ever been tagged/memed by a blogger. Yay!

Hi Elizabeth. Thanks for the tag. I've finally got round to doing my list. I was going to try to write this in German as I did it for A Level but I've forgotten almost everything! I wish I could ski. I've been a couple of times but am rubbish and fall over every five minutes. One day I'll try again x

I love, love, love your necklace in the first photo! You and your boyfriend make a lovely couple! Thank you for the tag, I've been catching up on your blog (and will be giving some much needed attention to my own this week!). Your photos of Germany are also lovely, you should list on etsy :) xx
