I've been tagged by the lovely girls over at Simply Olive to reveal 8 facts about myself. Since this is a food blog I thought I'd better make them food related, but then began to draw a complete blank, so what you see below is what you get!

1 - I really enjoy savoury breakfasts. At the moment, coleslaw and grated cheese on toast is the favourite, even though it pretty much guarantees onion breath for the rest of the day.

2 - I once had to run a race down the main thoroughfare of the Melbourne CBD, tossing a pancake against members of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Needless to say, I didn't win.

3 - I only paint my toenails in summer, when I'm always wearing open-toed shoes. I never, ever paint my fingernails - with ones as ugly as mine, why draw attention to them?

4 - I have never heard a song by Amy Winehouse. I have nothing against Miss Winehouse - in fact, I'm rather a fan of her hairstyle; more it is an indication of how far out of the loop I've become in regard to popular entertainment since having a child. However, when it comes to The Wiggles, I know more than is probably decent to know!

5 - I do not own a television, and have lived without one for the past 12 years. I don't miss it at all (except for documentaries).

6 - I'm quite a bookworm. My groaning bookcases (five of them!) can attest to this.

7 - I prefer to make clothes rather than go through the ordeal of shopping for them.

8 - I'm a big nerd who brings my own bags and containers to shops. No plastic for this little black duck!
