Getting to know you!!
 
 

We have many ways of getting to know each other - but this one’s for those who have a deep-seated need to tell the world exactly how wonderful they are – and for the nosey parkers who want in-depth and unexpurgated vital stats… Evil Smile 

Where possible feel free to post some piccies (or ask me nicely and I'll do it for you ’cos I'm good like that) with the info you put up (although if you’re 13 or younger (gods I wish I was!) I think there’s some restriction on putting pictures of yourself on the web
So if you are 13 or younger just do the writing bits and leave the mugshots off.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Copy and paste the following survey into your post and just go through answering whichever questions you want to (delete the ones you don’t want to answer as you like). If you’re fussy on presentation feel free to add pretty colours or highlighting too – see if I care! Wink

2. Post a picture(s) of you if you like (but please read the previous section if you're 13 or younger). A recent one would be great, but you don’t have to have any – we’ll just assume that they’re really bad or exposes you to some form of blackmail…

3. Feel free to add any other things that you think we should know or make up some more questions if you want (will add those onto this template as we go if they’re interesting!)

Something else about me: One of my ancestors is Joseph Addison - a poet and politician who was all for women's rights in late seventeenth and early eighteenth century.  He was married to the Duchess of Warwick who can trace her ancestry back to Richard the Third ... so may be related to the Plantagenent but I think every Brit can claim that.  I am also related to the Duke and Duchess of Lauderdale - they helped in the Mary Queen of Scot's rebellion against Elizabeth ... hmmm, seeing a pattern here! My grandma's grandma was seamstress to Queen Victoria - she was also rebellious in that she had children before marriage in Victorian times ... and I have a family mystery I would love to solve, my great Uncle Thomas Addison Flower who 'vanished' during the First World War - all we have is a sword that may have some blood still from that fight he was in ... Sound's like a Sebastian Faulks story.
