Questions 2 - 4!

I chose the 100 Questions meme because I thought it would give me a great chance to reminisce, so some of the answers are going to be long!

2. What’s your middle name?

I don't have one and I've always felt deprived!

I was born with a very strange surname. It's so strange that, at university, people would point at it and laugh if they saw it written down. My mother always claimed that it had been difficult enough to find one name to go with it (ignoring the fact that my paternal grandma, her sisters-in-law, and my mother herself all had names that worked perfectly well with it -- Florence, Sarah, Alice, Rachael, Margaret)...

Florence would have been cool! I would have used it instead of my first name.

3. Do you still talk to the first person you kissed?

No! I haven't seen him since I was 18.

His name was Stuart, and we were about seven when we first kissed -- I was considered his 'girlfriend' because our teacher had sat us next to one another. At 18, he was tall, dark and very attractive :-) I wonder what he's doing now?

4. Do you get on with your grandpa?

Well, I actually had two grandpas... or, rather, two grandads. And both passed away some time ago.

Tomorrow is a London day -- I set off at 6.30 in the morning and don't get home until 11.00 at night, if all goes well -- so the next batch of questions will have to wait until Wednesday!
