I’ve Been Tagged by Sandra

… by Sandra, and no I haven’t tagged myself… click on her name and you’ll open a world of charming inspiration and beautiful designs. Thank you. The rules are:-

1: Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2: Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3: Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4: Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1:  Ok, here goes…. The first one is that I am of Cuban decent, Both my parents are Cuban,  I see myself as a Cuban that just so happens to be born in UK ;o)
2: I love singing and sang in the Horsham Community Gospel Choir for many years.  This adventure took us to The Malmo Gospel festival where we sang in a 500 strong mass gospel choir on two occasions. 
3:  I am 3rd generation Salvation Army. My Grandparents were officers in Cuba.  My church is where I met my childhood sweetheart (at the tender age of 15) we have been married since 1994 and have 3 adorable children (well I would say that being their Mama)
4: Talking about church… I am a member of the band and play cornet, Hubby plays trombone, my brother the baritone, father-in-law cornet and my dad is the Colour Sargent and carries the flag.  One of my twins (aged 3) has taken to sitting next to me in the band on Sundays where he plays his toy trumpet when the band plays.
5: Something a bit weird is that I know I’ve only got  3 kiddies but…. my mum is 1 of 7, my dad is 1 of 7, and my mum-in-law is 1 of 7.  When folks ask me if we’re gonna have any more kids I always say ‘never, say never…’ much ti my hubby’s horror :oD
6:  I’ve been on more diets than I care to remember…. and I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been!
7:  Lastly, we’re off to Disneyland Paris on 13th October… and I’m more excited than the children!!
I would like to tag the following seven:-

Christine, Kim, Lorraine, Brandi, Bev, Gill and Jeanette.
