I’ve been tagged by blogging bestie, Richmond Mummy, in the 7x7x7x7 meme, which means that I now have to tell you:

  • 7 posts that I read and liked by other bloggers
  • 7 bloggers who I follow and like
  • 7 things about myself
  • and then tag 7 other bloggers to do the same (I am not going to do this last bit, as all the bloggers I would tag have been tagged in this meme already)

So, here we go.

The bloggers I have chosen to include are on my regular reading list, but there are other bloggers who I also adore (St. Murphy and My Mum Runs to name two) but they did not post this week.

7 posts that I read and liked by other bloggers

  1. Phrases I thought I’d Never say by the brilliant, funny and fabulous Alice at More than Toast.
  2. Losing your way (and finding it again) also by the brilliant, funny and fabulous Alice at More than Toast.
  3. What I miss about Maternity Leave by the clever, witty and gorgeous Bianca over at Richmond Mummy
  4. To share or not to share – that is the Question by the Goddess that is Kate at Witwitwoo
  5. Choices by the lovely Yorkshire lass living in Vancouver & blogging at 12 hours to bedtime
  6. Wedding Belles and tight squeezes by Twitter shy Alicia at  Mother and Other of SE23
  7. Of mullet skirts and asshole cabbies PLUS other reasons I cried this week by ùber blogger, Mrs Woog at Woogsworld

7 things about me (that I didn’t already tell you in the 10 Things you Didn’t Know About Me meme)

  1. I knew I was going to marry the Greek God(zilla) on our first official date.  He said he knew before then.  We were married 4 years later to the day at Marylebone Registry Office.
  2. My last meal request would be pizza washed down with a bottle of red wine.  Actually, make that two pizzas and two bottles of red wine with a cheesecake chaser, as it’s my last meal and all that…
  3. Lady Gaga is following me on Twitter.  I have never tweeted or DM’d her… should I?
  4. I have no idea what my natural hair colour is these days, just that it is tinged with grey.  Over the years, I have experimented with 3 different shades of red, 5 different shades of blonde, jet black and warm brown tones.  Right now,  I like to think I am rocking a warm brown with dark blonde highlights look.
  5. When I was working as a PA at Ogilvy & Mather in 1998, my boss took me to The Cannes International Advertising Festival and invited me up on stage with him to collect an award.  Following the ceremony, I borrowed the statue and gatecrashed every afterparty going.   I was followed around by the local trade press for days afterwards.
  6. My current celeb crushes are Vampire Eric and Marc Warren.
  7. I own 2 pairs of jeggings and I LOVE THEM.

So there you have it.  I’m not going to tag anyone else, but if you fancy taking part in the 7x7x7x7 meme then fill your boots!

    Thanks for the mention! I too am very impressed that Lady Gaga is following you on Twitter! I would be bragging about that all the time if she was following me!
