Hmmm, let’s see:
1. I was born in Crown Street Women’s Hospital.
2. Later that year, the hospital was demolished.
3. I’ve lived in Sydney (Gladesville, Riverwood, Chester Hill, Ashfield and Ryde).
4. And Exmouth. That’s in Western Australia.
5. And Cessnock. Lucky me. Whoop de doo.
6. I’m an only child.
7. Married to an only child.
8. And we have an only child.
9. My first job was at Target.
10. i worked in the Manchester Department.
11. My second job was at St George Bank.
12. Then I joined the Australian Protective Service.
13. I was a Counter-Terrorist First Response Officer at Sydney Airport.
15. I was 20 at the time.
16. And weighed about 55kgs dripping wet.
17. I had a gun.
18. And I knew how to use it.
19. I was a pretty good shot.
20. But I only ever fired it on the range.
21. For which I will be forever grateful!
22. As a Protective Service Officer, I also worked at the Prime Minister’s Sydney residence: Kirribilli House.
23. I once watched the Melbourne Cup on telly with Mrs Howard.
24. I was married on 21 September 1996.
25. At Wollombi, NSW.
26. We went to New Zealand for our honeymoon.
27. Darren left for Exmouth when Mollie was 3 days old.
28. We followed a week later.
29. It was a nightmare.
30. I had undiagnosed PND for a couple of months.
31. We moved back to NSW when Mollie was about 3-4 months old.
32. That was also a nightmare.
33. From which I have never awoken!
34. The next 12 months or so were the hardest and most hideous of my entire life.
35. The details are very boring.
36. Since then, I’ve had four other jobs.
37. Merchandising, Admin, Retail Banking (again) and Centrelink.
38. I think this is my eighth job.
39. It took me about six years to get my degree, studying part-time by distance education.
40. I have a Bachelor of Social Science (Social Welfare).
41. I love chocolate.
42. I love to read.
43. I prefer fiction to non-fiction.
44. I’m still friends with my best friend from high school.
45. We’ve been friends for 20 years.
46. That is so, so scary.
47. I left home at 19.
48. I’m still friends with my first flatmate.
49. She’s my only flatmate!
50. I left home, lived with her for about 2 years, met Darren and moved in with him.
51. I’ve never lived alone!
52. And I’ve only just realised that. Duh!
53. I would have liked more children.
54. Well, maybe just one more.
55. But that’s ok.
56. Because I love the one I have with all my heart anyway!
57. And really, I’m not much of a mother.
58. Not as bad as some, not as good as others.
59. I love the colour blue.
60. I don’t have a favourite TV show.
61. Because most TV shows piss me off.
62. I’d rather read a book.
63. I don’t really have any hobbies or interests.
64. That’s pretty sad.
65. Darren and I went to Melbourne for my 30th birthday.
66. We stayed at a really nice hotel and drank Moet.
67. I’ve been to Disneyland.
68. When I was 20, I went around Europe and Ireland by myself.
69. That is, I went alone, but joined a tour.
70. It was the happiest time of my life (sorry Daz and Mol!).
71. But I don’t think that person exists any more.
72. One day I intend to travel extensively.
73. I just need to find me some money…
74. I love flowers: the kind that grow, not the kind you get at the florist, if you see what I mean.
75. I have read all the Harry Potter books, and seen all the movies.
76. Man, I wish I’d been the author of those, hey!
77. My father was born in Ireland.
78. I’ve often wondered if I’d qualify for dual citizenship.
79. But I’ve never bothered to find out.
80. And really, dual citizenship with Ireland wouldn’t really be much of a bargain anyway. No offence to the Irish…but I think DC would be more beneficial to somewhere like the USA or UK!
81. I often wonder whether I’m insane. In a clinical sense, you know, sarcasm aside.
82. I’m really struggling now. With this, I mean, not insanity .
83. I’m trying to grow my hair.
84. I have two tattoos.
85. A dolphin on the inside of my left leg.
86. And a triquetra on my right shoulder.
87. And the triquetra has nothing to do with the TV show "Charmed".
88. Perish the thought.
89. I was really happy with that tat, until I realised that it had been mauled to symbolise that crap.
90. I would like another tat, but I’m not sure what I want, or where I want it.
91. Getting tattoos does, in fact, hurt.
92. Don’t listen to anyone who says otherwise. They lie.
93. And they are really, really expensive.
94. Unless you happen to be really good friends with the artist.
95. Which I’m not.
96. I sometimes suffer insomnia.
97. I miss my grandparents more as I get older.
98. I’ve never met anybody from my father’s family. Not one single person.
99. He was one of 10.
100. Maybe that’s why he came out here when he was 17!!
