Five of things

OK, if you insist - five things you may not know about me:
  1. I used to be on an elite panel of chocolate tasters for Rowntrees (now Nestlé) in York.
  2. From 1974-1976, my family lived in a house on stilts in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
  3. I am allergic to nickel (and therefore also anti-single EU currency).
  4. Aged 11, I unknowingly played in goal for the first half of a football match with a broken arm.
  5. I once had a girlfriend who dumped me for Hunter from 'Gladiators'.
Comments welcome! And with that, I hereby tag Alex, Ian and Helena:

(Seems it is also the done thing to reference the originator of the meme)


  1. I'm allergic to nickle too. It means man can't buy me cheap jewellery and therefore not an allergy I'm altogether unhappy with.

  2. if it's any consolation, my mother once fired hunter from gladiators.
