Say a wee bit about yourself. ...
« on: March 11, 2007, 09:17:12 PM »
I noticed that we a getting quite a few new people to the forum, I'm interested in building up a picture in my mind as to what the people I am chatting to are like, age, interests, where they are posting from etc... you can add a pic if you have one... I will start off,

My name is paula, I am 31, I live in Bangor,Co.Down, I am married to Phil who is a first aid trainer and P/T Coastguard Deputy station Officer. I am a full time mum at present but am a trained Dental Nurse. I have interests in Art, History,Poetry, Biology,dance and Genealogy to name but a few. We have 3 children, Charlotte 7, Madeline(Maddie),4 and my blue eyed boy James Jude, 2.
Ok now you go.

Hi Giannineo!! I know you are a blether!! but you do make me laugh!! I see you are a Podiatrist, thats interesting, I love hoking and poking at feet, when I left school I started off working in a Beauty Salon, I know it is embarrassing :-[ but my favourite part of the job was pedicures, I loved all the hard skin and ingrowing toenails!! maybe I have some sort of problem ;D
My mother-in law used to have a wee holiday home in Greece in a place called Mikonos(not sure of the spelling) she adores the place, I have never been myself. Hope you have a lovely birthday on friday ;)

Hi Stig and Welcome.
We had a thread a while ago on Veda and I think I posted a link to a recipe. As you will see, the Veda recipe is a  closely guarded secret.
The thread start here  http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,2207.0.html
If it was'nt for venetian blinds it would be curtains for everybody!

Mykonos...braw Bogey.... my first Greek island ever in  1974.It is now very much a designer trendy place.Wee sugar cube houses, beautiful.
   We arrived on Paradise Beach on a wee caique and it took off and left us. Then we realised it was a nudist beach...we stayed for a week and the first few days were the hardest ;D

Mykonos has a very high gay population now or so my ma-in-law says and its just too expensive to go there now.
