80 weird and wonderful things about yours truly

1. When I was little I wanted to see what happened if I put both my feet in the front wheel of my bike whilst going really fast.  So I tried it and flew over the handlebars.  I was really embarrassed, though, so told mum and dad that I'd hit "a really big stone" in the street and that caused me to flip over the handlebars.

2. I once pulled my wardrobe down on top of me trying to reach a jumper from the top shelf.  I was stuck under it for ages before my mum heard me shouting and came and rescued me.  From then on, my dad always screwed it to the wall to stop me pulling it over again.

3. Despite my stupidly clumsy streak, I have never broken a bone.

4. I've had two major operations - one to remove a tumour on my knee and the other to repair my lungs after I got pneumonia.

5. I jumped out of a plane in 2011 to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

6. I used to think nuns were fictitious characters because I'd only ever seen them in films.

7. I experimented as a chav when I was a teenager. Me and my friends once went to York dressed in Adidas trackie bottoms tucked into football socks with trainers on, a Fred Perry, and big hooped earrings.  *Shudder*

8. I also experimented the 'mosher' phase.  That didn't last long, either.

9. I was desperate to fit in at school (clearly)

10. I didn't have my first proper kiss until I was 14.

11. I used to be scared of dogs.

12. I now love dogs.

13. I once punched a guy in a club because he wouldn't stop touching my bum.

14. Mine and Tom's parents both got married on exactly the same day (6th May 1989) which is why me and Tom chose that as our wedding date.

15. Our parents also both live at number 66.

41. When I went to Disneyland I wanted my picture taking with the characters but was still scared, so stood about two metres away in every photo.

42. I've sung at the MEN Arena in Manchester and twice in Disneyland Paris.

43. I used to do pantomime every year and one year had a horrendous fish costume to wear. A load of people from my school saw me wearing it during a rehearsal so all came to watch the show and videoed me singing and dancing in it and sent it all round school.  That was not a good day.

44. I passed my driving test second time with no minors.

45. I used to work as a waitress and would regularly fall down the stairs whilst carrying food to and from tables.

46. I once got so drunk that I was having an argument with 'a girl' in a club because 'she' wouldn't move out of my way, totally not realising I was facing a mirror and it was, in fact, my reflection.

66. I fart all the time.

67. Once, when I was parking my old car in the garage at mum and dad's, I completely misjudged how much room I had and caught the garage door hinge with my wing mirror.  This sent the door crashing down on top of my car and my heart rate through the roof! Thankfully there was not a single scratch on it, phewwww.
