All about me me

Paula has tagged me with the latest meme (how do you say that ; me-me or to rhyme with, er...la Boheme?). Anyway I don't normally do these things, but it has been interesting reading about everyone else so it's only fair I join in!

WHAT WAS I DOING 10 YEARS AGO?
Gee I can hardly remember what I was doing yesterday, here's a rough idea. Working in London, living in sin with my now husband in the flat we still own there and thinking how I didn't want to turn 30 in a couple of years! I certainly had no clue I would be moving to the other side of the world.

WHAT ARE 5 THINGS ON MY TO-DO LIST TODAY?
Today is Sunday, my husband is on a business trip and I am going to have a pretty lazy day. Not every day is like this honest.
-grocery shopping
-update my blog with my PR mini wardrobe stuff
-do a bit of sewing on my HP sunshine top I cut yesterday
-just thought of this, been meaning to do it for a while - have a closet clearout
-do some kind of workout

Notice the things less likely to happen are already at the bottom of the list.

SNACKS I ENJOY:
Generally I prefer savoury snacks to sweet ones, chips or popcorn are good. That said I would not turn down chocolate and cannot have it in the house.

THINGS I WOULD DO IF I WERE A BILLIONAIRE:
Invest enough of it so that I didn't have to worry about income ever again (sorry the accountant in me emerging)
Quit my charity job, but donate a chunk of money instead
Purchase places to live in Hong Kong, Thailand and Australia and travel a lot
Give some to my family to make sure they are OK

Really thats about it, just accelerating what I hope to do anyway - no private jets, couture clothes etc. Easy to say that now I suppose, I will let you know if it turns out differently when the billion dollar cheque arrives.

PLACES I HAVE LIVED:
West Sussex, UK
London, UK
Hong Kong

WHAT TYPE(S) OF WORK HAVE I DONE?
Shop assistant, on Saturdays while at school
Working in the kitchen of a mexican restaurant chain while at college (if you have seen me in a kitchen you would understand this was the scariest job for me, but it taught me a lot about confidence (and making nachos!).)
Accountant/auditor in a big city firm
Accountant in oil company in London
Kind of floating around for same oil company in Hong Kong for a couple of years
Financial controller for animal charity in Hong Kong

SIX (6) “PEEPS” I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT.
I'm usually pretty late to these parties - anyone who wants to join in go for it!

Check back later and see if I managed to cross off the "update my blog" item from todays tough schedule!

Another accountant!! There are quite a few of us in the sewing community. If I didn't have kids I would be off to another country (HK sounds good) - our profession is pretty transportable. And you make me laugh re investing. That is what I fantasize about when ever I buy a lotto ticket.

Thanks for playing this game. I enjoy getting to know more about us sewing sisters.
