Hide and seek.

Liz tagged me to do this.* So it is all her fault.

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, just make one up...or use the one you would have liked to have had.

3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Well, I don't have a middle name, but my family have always simply called me 'Ray' for as long as I can remember, so I'm going with the second part of my name - Anne.

A. Acting out the role created for me by my place within the class system in the UK. Stuff that. I have always walked my own path and made my own choices. I suspect that my parents often thought that there had been a mix up at the maternity hospital and they had come home with someone else's child.

N. Nuns. I was lucky enough to win a scholarship to a Roman Catholic Convent High School at my 11 plus = swotty child- and I adored every minute of it. Head girl. Sack load of CGSEs. The lot. Forget horror stories of tormenting sisters, these women and the lay teachers were totally brilliant and I owe them more than I can say. And I certainly was not alone. Go Sisters of Mercy.

N. No regrets. Only look forward.

E. Education and Expectations. For many years my goal was to become a University Lecturer, and I worked hard to make that happen. The two years I spent in teaching taught ME a lot, and the students were excellent. I truly believe that without education a person can never realise their potential. Life long learning is real. [One of the reasons I support UNICEF] Education taught me that the only limits are those you set for yourself.

Since I have no friends and am a total recluse, I chose to ignore part 4 of the rules and not impose my tag on anyone else. [ see under A]
Take care world and have a good one.


What's playing on my YouTube right now? Snow Patrol

Hey, you're not Billy No Mates at all.

My middle name is long and I have several colliding deadlines, or I'd say "tag me"... After Christmas. :o)

Thank you for the kind words.
I do know SOME kind folk who talk to me now and then, but I also know that they are all overcommitted like crazy this month.
And I thought Xmas madness was only for retailers and supplliers!
Oh - that includes me. YIKES!!
Thanks again for the comment, Ray-Anne

PS I was a kick ass, take no prisoners, mood when I completed the tag. Could you tell?
