Tell Me About Yourself Award

Thanks to Kate at for giving me this 'Tell Me About Yourself' Award. To be worthy of acceptance, I must now tell you seven secrets about me, so here goes:

  1. Although I am called Sally, the name on my birth certificate is 'Sarah'. I changed my name by deed poll.
  2. My younger brother once got into serious trouble for drawing a picture on the wall with crayons. I drew that picture. I know, it sounds really cruel, but he deserved it.
  3. If I visit someone's house and notice they have a paper recycling bin, I rifle through it to see if there's anything useful in it.
  4. I once had to spend a whole afternoon standing at the back of Class 6 because I pinched the swimming teacher's bum. Someone dared me. It was worth the kudos.
  5. I got expelled from school at the age of 16 for being pregnant.
  6. Contrary to the impression you may have gained from points 2, 4, and 5 above, I was very well behaved at school and was only ever in detention once, for being persistently late. Nothing has changed. I'm still always late. 
  7. I love Physics. If I wasn't an artist, I'd be a Physicist. Probably a mad one.
And now without further ado, I hereby pass this award on to fifteen unsuspecting bloggers for whom I have the utmost respect. (Or.... fifteen people whose blogs I love and whom I'd like to know more about.):


  1. Thanks for thinking of my blog! x

  2. That's ok - I know you're probably too busy to do it what with the move and all, but I do love your blog, so thought I'd post it anyway. :)

  3. Thank you for including me! I've posted so many "lists about me" that if I started a new one I'd have to tell you super-secrets! ;) Here are some of my older posts with my alice-list:
