My fellow blogger Marie, at Montpellier Daily Photo, has tagged me...many thanks, Marie.

As with all things these days, there are rules :-
1. Link to your tagger and list the rules.
2. List 8 random facts about yourself.
3. Tag 8 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.

However, as the name of my blog implies, the only rule is there are no rules! Rules are there to be broken, as long as nobody or nobody is harmed.

OK...ummmmm.....8 random facts about me....

1. I was at the Wimbledon men's final in 1985 when Boris Becker won his 1st championship, aged 18 ( I think). Check out the Beaut Aussie Sheila, above, sitting in a stand on an outside court that day.
2. Hated reading all through school...the day I left school, I started reading and haven't stopped.
3. I love drinking Eden Valley or Clare Valley riesling.
4. I love being in very isolated places, especially with vast distant views.
5. I am a chronic procrastinator.
6. I used to play the French Horn quite well, but my trumpet playing was truly awful.
7. Christmas is the best time of the opinion only.

Yes, I know..only 7 facts, but 7 is more interesting that 8 I reckon. tag some fellow bloggers.....

1. Sewcilla
2. Cat
3. Irina

OH...that'll do for now...yep, nowhere near 8, but too bad!

Great to find out 7 random facts about you!!
I have just remembered that Marie tagged me too and I forgot to do something about it - hmmm must think about that!!!

Irina said...

This tagging thing seems to go world wide!

And about 'P&P' - yes, I meant version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. I love this movie! Looking forward to seeing BBC version of 'Sense and Sensibility'.

CabaC, I was out the Aust Open in 1981 in Melbourne! You should have a look at Robyn's site - she plays the horn - her avatar is called "Scout" and blog is called "Just Saying" (I think!).
I'm a sometimes procrastinator; but when I decide, I'm like a whirlwind!

Great to read you Random Facts, be they 7 or 8. I can't imagine how excited you were that you got to see that match. I've always liked to get up early and watch Wimbledon on television here.

French Horn? Would love to hear...
Like Irina said, it seems everybody is being tagged or is tagging someone else... I was also caught, but passed away quickly...
Have a great weekend!

PS: Beaut Aussie looked great! :))
