I have been tagged! No not by the prison service whilst released into the community but by one of my favourite bloggers Miss Jennyta @ "Demob Happy Teacher". Like Jennyta, I haven't done one of these taggy things for a long time so here goes. The idea is that you reveal five things about yourself that you have not previously displayed in your blog:

  1. so I take it that you are responsible for the fact that he seems to hate everyone who is not him. You set him on the road to the blame culture

  2. John Reid was an exceptional leader of the students' union at Stirling - a very gifted politician. I for one would be happier to see him as PM than Golden Brown. To be a great leader there has to be not a little arrogant self-belief in your make up.

  3. You slept through The Doors? Oh man, you break my heart. Then again, I slept through Don Giovanni-- I'd had a full day of work and the theatre was so cozy. That was the most expensive nap I've ever taken.:(

    Just for Yorkshire Pud,
    This one's slightly different,

  5. See, YP, it wasn't that hard! ;)

  6. You slept through the Doors!
    I fell asleep during Emmerson, Lake and Palmer at the same festival, about 2am I think on the Sat'day.
    Them were the days!
