ONE I have a large (Italian) family on my Mum’s side and there are LOTS of cousins, as well as two cousins on my Dad’s side. It makes for some very entertaining/stressful(!) family occasions. I am the oldest cousin on both side – does this give some indication as to how long I’ve been looking after little kids? My youngest cousin started school the same year I started teaching and still thinks I’m cool, which is pretty nice. I have one younger sister (who is 14 months younger than me) who is currently living in Sydney.
TWO Once upon a time I was really nervous about talking to people about writing in role-playing games, but I’ve since come to embrace my inner-fangirl and just go WHAT THE HELL! Over the years I’ve written fan fiction AND written in numerous role-playing games, playing all sorts of characters. Currently I write in a Batman movie-verse game (I write Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Bruce Wayne/Batman, as well as Jim Gordon when the occasion calls for it) and in an X-Men movie-verse game, where I write Kitty Pryde. (If you want me to explain any of this stuff, feel free to ask questions!)
THREE The last few weeks I’ve been really unwell, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I have a fructose intolerance. My sister had it a few years ago and went on the low FODMAP diet to help combat it. I’ve had to reassess some of my eating habits and say goodbye (for now) to a few of the staples of the food I’d normally eat. Thankfully though there are still quite a few things I love to eat on my allowed food list. (This, combined with a never-ending cold, has knocked me around quite a bit, unfortunately.)
And that’s it! Don’t forget to link up today with the Teaching Tribune!
