100 Truths Blogger Tag

I was tagged in a new blogger tag by the wonderful Jaki from https://jakijellz.comIt is ages since I did a tag thingy and it’s great to come across new ones.

I would love to know what you knew already and which bits surprise you!

1 What’s your name?

Alison – that’s your first surprise

2 Any nicknames or aliases?

Sherlock, Clogger, Snuggle Bum

3 Your gender?

Female – not such a surprise

Saggitarius

One year younger than I will be tomorrow

Married

7 Any children?

3 aged 17, 13 and 12

8 Any pets?

2 dogs – a Beagle and a Shepherd/Collie cross puppy.

10 What do you like about yourself?

My passion, creativity and my values. My caring  nature. My wicked sense of humour.

11 What do you dislike about yourself?

My sense of humour can be quite harsh. I am good with words so can go for the jugular in an argument. I am too much the shy, introverted scaredy-cat!

Do husband’s count?

34 Have you ever found out people were talking about you behind your back?

Yes but only for good reasons

Yes. That’s how good strangers become good friends – joke!

37 Have you ever had your own heart broken?

Yes and played  a part in that  myself too

38 Have you ever had sex on the first date?

Still waiting to have what I would call a first date. OK, yes but it was hardly a date and I was in a very bad emotional state at the time and it was hardly sex or not by my standards anyway,
