Been Tagged

Lori and Connie both tagged me for this meme thingy that's doing the rounds at the moment ~ thanks ladies :o)  As I was bored at work today I thought I'd fill it in *shush* ;-)


1. Each player answers questions about themselves.

2. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people, and posts their names, goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know they've been tagged.

1) What was I doing 10 yrs ago?
In 1998 I was a checkout operator at a supermarket (or I may have been unemployed at this point).  Anyway sometime between then and 1999 I was unemployed because the manager of the supermarket accused me of doing something that I didn’t remember doing and I was on a final written warning, which meant that if I did something else I would be sacked, or whatever.  To stop them from having that satisfaction the next day I handed my notice in.  Not that I thought I was doing anything wrong to give them cause to sack me, but I also wanted to get out before the ship sunk so to speak.  We were battling with a Tesco store that had opened up in the town.  The town wasn’t that big so doesn’t really need two supermarkets and we were very, very quiet!!  Also my thinking was that it wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life and certainly not why I went to college.  So I concentrated on finding an office job and did some “voluntary” work at a Primary school.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
To be honest with you I only make mental to do lists at the weekend.  At work I do whatever I’m told (that’s why I’m such a good worker…….well either that or a bit of a sucker lol)

3) Snacks I enjoy:
 Crisps, chocolate, biscuits, cakes anything and everything that is just not good for me lol
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
If I was a billionaire I would be free to concentrate on doing something where I could be creative.  I would make sure that Trina and Wayne and me mum were all financially happy.  I would probably pay for Queen/Foo Fighters and the Kaiser Chiefs to play my back garden, coz by then I would have a beautiful house, probably in the countryside and they could all stay for the night too so we could have one BIG party.  Besides my country mansion I would have a lush apartment in the city for when I need to contact my agent lol…… Mind you if I couldn’t do something creative I think I would like to be a radio presenter.

5) Five of my bad habits:
Bite my finger nails, Burp (a lot), I’m too embarrassed to tell you anymore than that lol

6) 5 places I have lived:
Exeter, Axmouth, Musbury, Axminster and back to Exeter again all in Devon mainly in East Devon (how boring huh??)

7) 5 jobs I have had:
Runner at a Holiday Camp, Checkout Operator, Clerical Assistant (doing all the jobs no-body else wanted to do and then coz I was good at them got lumbered with it!!), Supply Administrator (dealing with processing Supply Teacher applications) this then transferred to a Call Centre.  First I was a call centre operator doing shifts which I found difficult so transferred back to being an administrator. Now I’m a Finance Assistant which sucks big time L

5 people I'll tag:
I’m being lazy coz I can’t think of 5 people who haven’t been tagged already so if you wanna go ~ go on do it…… know you wanna ;)

HI Jen, thanks for the comment :)  Anyhow, we eat dinner in the morning so we can eat less at night.  We are feeling much better eating a lite dinner like cereal rather then a huge dinner.  So I get up early to make a regular dinner in the am before the boys have to leave for school/work.  I love not having to make dinner at night!

What's a runner at a holiday camp? I mean, I know it's self explanatory but why run? and for why?
A friend of mine waitressed at a holiday camp, hard work for peanuts I can tell you. I hope they paid more if you had to run everywhere.
