20 Facts about Me!

Posted by Rosie

I am Rosie Hill and along with Simon and our sons Tom and Ben we run Eco-Gites of Lenault, a family freindly gite (holiday cottage) in Normandy France.  That much I imagine many readers of this blog aready know.  What else do you know about me though?  Do you know when my birthday is or things I really do not like?  Do you know if and where I went to University or something odd that I might be allergic to?

Below are 21 facts about me.  20 of them are true and one of them is not .... but do you now which one is the false one?!

  1. Hmmm - very difficult. I'm going to plump for the University on the basis of it is one of the least interesting from this list...

  2. Love it, Rosie! How delightful to get to know you. Love your photo, but I have to say that you look older, no - more mature - than I thought from your posts :)

    I would second Paul's guess - the University or .. being right-handed. Nothing special about that!

    LOVE this post. Looking forward to finding out! And, oh, HAPPY BIRTHDAY

  3. Well if today is your birthday, happy birthday (or belated)! However, I'm going to guess that you are right-handed? Just because it is too obvious and besides, left handedness goes along with the right side of the brain: logical etc. ;) <3

  8. I agree that number 9 must be true too - you wouldn't make it up. Would you?! I think you're actually left handed.

  12. Hello. Popping over from www.ourseasidebaby.blogspot.co.uk (I couldn't reply to your comment for some reason). What a great set of facts. Some of these made me laugh. What did you study at university? Wow, no makeup since 1994! You look great :)
