CURIOUS TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

I've been tagged by my cyberfriend Jackie from Herbs 'n' Oils and The Vegan Diet for the following Meme, "Curious To Learn More About Me?" Well here's my response:-

N – NAOMI is a Bible name of Jewish Hebrew origin. I was the only Naomi at school and it was a very unusual name back in the sixties when I was born. The most famous Naomi’s in those days were the yachtswoman Naomi James and writer Naomi Jacobs. Naomi Campbell has made the name more popular in recent years.

A – AUTUMN is one of my favourite times of the year. As some of my readers know I grew up in the country and I’ve always loved trees. I love it when the leaves change colour.

O – OATS. I always try to eat a healthy diet and love to start the day with a bowl of porridge. Oats are really good for heart and circulation and good for lowering cholesterol too.

M – MICE. I know some women are scared of mice. But they don’t bother me at all. When I was growing up, one of my schoolfriends had a couple of pet mice. We used to hold them and let them run on our hands. They were cute.

I – IRELAND. I’m part Irish and have Irish ancestry. My great granddad on my Mum’s side was Irish. Ireland is definitely on my list of places to visit in the future.

In return I'd like to tag Princess Haiku from Princess Haiku, Kilroy from Fear and Loathing - The Gonzo Papers, Friday's Child from Friday's Child, Rick from Palm Springs Savant and The Gatekeeper from Pieces of Me.

Here are the “official” rules for this Meme:

You have a beautiful name. I too love to have oatmeal for breakfast. I always feel it is healthier than eggs and meat.

Thanks for doing the meme, as you will note I bent the rules a bit as there is no N in my name.

Great to know more about you. I have always wanted to get to Ireland but always landed up mainly in England or Wales.

Hi Naomi,
This is a fun post. Thanks for tagging me but I have already been tagged for this particular one. I can tell it's going to be popular.

Thanks Sheila. That's very kind of you. As a child I never liked my name as nobody could pronounce it but I like it more now I'm older. I always think bacon and eggs are ok once in a while as a treat but porridge is a lot healthier.

I enjoyed doing the meme Jackie. Good exercise for my brain! Ha ha!
If I go to Ireland I'll do a post about it on my blog Jackie.

Glad you enjoyed the post Princess Haiku. Didn't realise you had already been tagged for this. Yes it looks like it's going to be popular.
