We Already Have 1036 Recipes.

It’s only a game.

This is the school I have graduated from in Cyprus
St. Mary’s School

The other day I saw that Peter was tagged by Heather and that was the first time I heard about this “game” but I loved the idea and secretly wished that I would be tagged as well. Well, here I am, we must really think twice what we wish for (lol). My next wish is to get more comments on my blog. I haven’t thought about the third one yet.

Anyway there are certain rules about this “game”.

These are the rules:

Link to your tagger and post these rules.

  1. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  2. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and their names (linking to them).
  3. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

Now I’m quite new at blogging and don’t have many friends to tag. I know Peter has been tagged by Heather, so has Nuria and Val of More than burnt toast has tagged me. Ok, I am sure there are some left so my friends hope you won’t mind me tagging you.

Five facts about myself. Let me think. Oh yes, here I go:

  1. I was very lucky at the beginning of my career and worked in jobs where I met a lot of interesting personalities. After that we moved to Greece and traveled around (as my husband was in the military) and did not work for six years. Then I got a job in an Airline in Athens but got fired after twelve years of working there.
  2. When I was six we immigrated to London but left three years later as my mother suffered from rheumatisms, due to the climate, so we returned to shiny Cyprus. However my sister and two brothers stayed there and then one of my brothers went to Australia with his family and got to see him again after twenty years.
  3. In July of 1974, I went to England where my brother lived, on summer holidays, for two weeks, and whilst I was there my country, Cyprus, was into a coup and then invaded by the Turks and there was no way to get back home as the airport was bombarded and the situation was very dangerous for several months. I stayed there for three months and returned home by ship.
  4. The worse experience in my life was two years ago when one of my children fainted but whatever we did we could not bring him back. We tried everything we could do and it took us four whole minutes of efforts and despair to manage to bring him back. I don’t even want to think about it.
  5. A couple of months ago as I was going to my painting lessons I fell and sprained my ankle but never missed a day of blogging.

So my friends it’s time for free psychotherapy. Hope you’ll open your hearts to us and share your dark secrets with us or at least some memories you have and would like to share with us.

If you are tagged just check out my answers if that is as far as you want to participate. There is certainly no obligation whatsoever. In our busy lives we can choose to participate or not, whatever you like I won’t be offended. It’s only a game.

    Hi Ivy, very interesting facts about yourself – the episode with your son sounds very scary.

    I’m sorry (or happy depending on your perspective) to tell you I already answered this game, though my answers are not anywhere near as interesting as yours, as I stuck with food-related info. My answers are at the bottom of this post: http://medcookingalaska.blogspot.com/2008/01/recipe-pork-and-sage-bites.html

    If you have more friends to tag (and you have lots of them), why not go for it. It’s fun.

    Thanks Ivy for inviting me to play! I will certianly get around to it one of these days! It sounds like fun!
    I am glad you have gotten through all of these things!

    Hola Ivy! Isn’t it fun to do some group therapy? I still have to do mine… a bit late, but I will.
    What happened with your kid?… I hope he/she finally recovered and it was only a big fright. These kind of things with kids are so traumatic for mothers!!!!

    Kalispera Dulce chica, I love these sorts of stuff, they are fun. We are waiting to see what you will reveal to us.
    My son is fine now thank God, but at the time I was terrified and if it wasn’t for the big efforts my husband and my other son to bring him back, a few more seconds and it would have been too late. I don’t event want to think of it.

  7. Passionate baker...& beyond
