I was tagged ages ago by Grumpy Old Man of the Border Cobblers variety and finally feel in the mood to provide five (more) things you (probably) don't know about me.

1) Quite often I feel like going to a fancy dress shop, hiring a chicken outfit, putting it on and proceeding to skip down a busy street making loud clucking noises at everyone in my path - one day I will fulfil this dream. 2) My ambition is to write a number of bestselling novels and make enough money so that my teaching is just something I do as a hobby (then I would boast very annoyingly about my newfound status and tell my pupils that if they do really well at English some of them may possibly be (nearly) as successful as me) 3) I have already begun writing and often get inspiration from listening to the conversations of strangers (again, often on London Underground) 4) I talk to myself in the mirror most days. It really helps to discuss things with someone who understands. 5) Sometimes I wonder if it would have been better to leave school at 16 and go and work on a farm and not do anything academic at all instead of having all the A level and university shenanigans (hope none of my pupils read this - your exams ARE important - yes really!!!)
