Thanks for tagging me @akathimberlina ๐Ÿ˜˜.
1. I Am sewing mad (obvs).
2. I have 5 kids - 4 of whom were born at home.
3. I delivered my twins in my bath tub about 15 mins before the midwives arrived. (Not the NHS fault btw - they were brilliant - but I just thought it ought to be more painful so I didnt realise how far along I was until twin 1 was crowning.
4. Twin 2 arrived shortly after fully "en caul" - her amniotic sac intact and it is the most amazing sight I have ever seen. Hubs had to rip open her sac which again was amazing.
5. I loved breastfeeding and was gutted when my twins refused the breast at 12 months old - I had planned on breastfeeding until at least six years old๐Ÿ˜.
6. I was a level 60 World of Warcraft human rogue.
7. I went into labour with my first child in the middle of a Gnomeragen guild dungeon raid - only left for the hospital when raid was finished๐Ÿ˜.
8. First thing I did once back from hospital was get a call up for Warsong Gulch in WoW - played for hours (and for pretty much the next year).
9. I started my own Guild in WoW which grew to be one of the biggest and best at the time.
10. I am an overachiever.
11. I was meant to be a surgeon until at 18 I realised I didnt like blood (my parents were gutted).
12. I graduated with an overall average of 80% which won me an award for best student and a paltry ยฃ50.
13. My doctoral research was in service operations management.
14. I got a tattoo 16 years ago that I have hated for 15.5years. Luckily its somewhere I cant see easily.
15. I have an embarrasing obssesion with Hugh Jackman. And I cant believe that I just put that on the webs.
16. I dance. All. The. Time. 
17. I am a voracious reader. But for pure escapism I will pop a trashy HEA novel to forget the problems of the world.
18. I am irrationally freakishly scared of being in small enclosed spaces with members of the opposite sex so I always wait to see who is going into an elevator before I use it.
19. I love travelling and have been to all continents except Australia.
20. If I could ever pick what time period I could live in, I'd pick the 31st century. I think it'd be an exciting time to live in. Maybe too much Star Trek๐Ÿ˜
