50 Amazing, funny, sad but true, and completely useless facts about ME!

Well well, 50 posts, who would have thought? Thanks to the small band of nutters, followers who check in to examine the strange workings of my mind, so I thought I would share (cos we're all about sharing on here!) 50 weird and wonderful things about yours truly for my 50th post!
  1.  My nickname, Skyelee, originates from the fact that there is no possible way to shorten my name, so everyone just merges my first and second names together. Original huh?
  2. My birthday is June 30, so my parents have always called me a 'tax deduction'.
  3. My hubby and I both come from small families, only one sibling each.
  4. I have known my besties for 23 years, me thinks we need a 25 year "we haven't killed each other yet" holiday together in 2013!
  5. I wore braces for years after an accident when I was eight left me with 'bugs bunny' teeth.
  6. I STILL hate my teeth and would have them all capped if it didn't cost as much as a Caribbean cruise.
  7. I am a Melbourne girl born and bred, and cannot imagine living anywhere else.
  8. I am a MAD Collingwood supporter (please don't hold it against me!)
  9. Growing up I wanted to be a ballerina, an architect, a photographer and a florist. (Not all at the same time!)

  12. Met my hubby through an ex-boyfriend in 1995
  13. We got married in 2003 at the Melbourne Zoo - it was an AMAZING day!

Flogging time again with Where's My Glow - are you game?


    1. Found my way here from FYBF and following now. GREAT list, I love the links through it too! Perfect thing for my first visit here! I loved NKOTB too, Joey McIntyre was a total dreamboat.. hehe.

    2. LOL Tracy, Joe was my favourite too ;-) Thanks for following!

    3. Awesome list! Darwin is the only capital I haven't been to either, but I've been to all states and territories :)

    4. Hi, I'm your new follower after reading #35: I cannot comprehend coriander eating people either!!!!

      Oh yeah, Joe fan here too, also because of the smaller age gap he seemed more achievable...

      Looking forward to reading more about you :)
