    Just a random question really...

    I found out before I left work that a girl in my office knits and sews at home and makes her own hats and clothes. It's a perfectly normal thing to do but I never expected her to do it.. if that makes sense.

    I shocked the people in my office when I said I did a motorcycle maintenance course at college (god that's such a boy thing to do :roll:).

    I shocked nat's friends and my family by enrolling on an evening cookery course and enjoying it that much I booked another term.


    What have you done that is different to how people think you are?

    Well to all my old mates at school id have ended up in Jail or dead. When I contacted a few they were amazed to find I was married and had a family of my own and not the screwed up delinquent they thought I was :D

    Loads of people are surprised when I mention my kids - they all think im out every other night - how wrong are they!

    well, hav a baby for a start- i was the most unlikely mother everrr! i was the one female who did NOT leap up from my seat and swarm around a baby when someone at work brought in their new arrival- i just had no interest whatsoever :oops: i was far too busy partying all the time and i would never hav thought in a million years that one day i might get poo'd on, wee'd on and vomited on and not be utterly horrified! :lol:

    also, i think some might be suprised that i used to do thai boxing. i kicked ass as well my teacher was well impressed with me
    u wouldnt think it to look at me im small and skinny (well not quite so skinny since milliepops) and i look about 12 years old

    I don't think there's much about me that would surprise anybody really. I never imagined myself that I'd be the first out of my group of school friends to have babies though - let alone having 2 before any of them are even pregnant! I was never very maternal and didn't think babies were cute lol.

    Other than that, no nothing really.

    jus read that back and it sounds a bit big headed, its not! :lol: i never talk about it, and ive been hit ont he head a few times since then :rotfl:

    or.. ive been stabbed twice, that seems to surprise people :?

    Loads really, the fact I turned out slim and tall when I was a bit porky as a kid, was a bit of a deliquent and never bothered much with school work. So they'd be shocked to here that I've got a kid and another on the way, plus a high paid job my own home etc.

    Plus I stitch which would make them shocked too

    I sailed in the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht race in 2002 with Formula 1 yachts. It's the worlds most notorious offshore race. We completed 7th out of 52 boats :dance: , but all arrived at Hobart with the first stages of hyperthermia. (I still managed to celebrate with a pint of champagne though). :D
