And another meme, as I've been tagged by Kylie

And the rules are:
• Start with 7 random facts/habits about yourself, that others may not know!
• People who are tagged have to write their 7 things on their blog
• Then choose another 7 people to get tagged and list their names
So here they are...

1. I studied tapdancing for 7 years.
2. I have 2 sisters, and between us we have 6 living children, and have lost 8.
3. I am a teacher of Agriculture, who has not taught for 4 years. No doubt I will have lost my nerve when I re-enter a classroom.
4. My dream job is to work in a wilderness area in Africa. Unfortunately, I didn't realise this was possible when I could have chosen such things.
5. I love to cook, and don't let my husband's likes determine our daily menu.
6. I love to read, and always have a book on the go. I read while cooking, watching tv, washing the dishes..
7. I love gambling. Now I mainly gamble through entering competitions, and risking rain on my washing, but I love the pokie machines.

I'm not going to tag anyone - but go ahead and do it (it's trickier than it looks!)
