4 things meme............

RooBeeDoo tagged me when I told her I hadn't been tagged, I deserved that for my moment of silliness..............here goes.....
4 jobs I have had in my life:
My very first job was in a local fruit and veg/deli shop. I loved all the fresh produce and learnt a lot about cheeses.
My next job was as a 'helper' on a summer scheme for mentally handicapped children.
I then worked as a Children's Nurse after completing my RSCN (Registered Sick Children's Course) course at the RBHSC (Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children).
I later worked as a District Nurse with adults and children.
4 films I can watch again and again:
No prizes for this one. Lord of the Rings, I think Peter did a great job with this trilogy of films and I can watch Viggo and Sean 'to infinity and beyond'.
Matrix trilogy, again I could watch Keanu do 'his flying thing' again and again.
Dune, the one with Sting, I loved the books and I love this film version too.
Star wars, while I prefer the first 3 (4,5,6) I still like the first 3 too. Liam Neeson is a home grown hunk whose voice is to die for. :) See a pattern here? I do .....
4 places I have lived:
I was born in Ghana, West Africa, though I remember very little of that home.
I have since lived in Belfast, London, and Newcastle upon Tyne for up to 3 years at a time.

4 TV series I watch:
My all time favourite is CSI, I love Grissom........I love this season's cliffhanger, can I wait, hell no.......hurry up!!!
House MD, isn't he so arrogant but brilliant!!!!
Law and Order Criminal Intent, for me this is the best of the L&O series.
Silent Witness, another home grown actress who gave a wonderful portrayal of a Forensic Pathologist.
4 places I have been on holiday:
Kusadasi in Turkey, Ephesus is a must to go and see........
Rome is fabulous, when the boys are bigger we will hopefully take there. The Collosseum, Circus etc etc will 'entertain them'
Paris, France, cultural capital of the world?? Lovely and I always think of Abba's Last Summer when I think of Paris. "Walks along the Seine" etc.
West Coast of America. We did a round trip from LA to The Grand Canyon, Flagstaff through Sedona, Las Vegas, Mammoth Lakes, Yosemite, San Francisco, Carmel/Monterey and back to LA, before the boys came along.......
4 things I do every time I am on the Net:
Emails, Blogs, Forums and Knitting shops......doesn't every knitter do this?
4 things I would NOT eat for anything in the world:
Tripe
Tripe
Tripe
and pickled Beetroot.....
4 places I would love to be right now:
New Zealand with my family
New Zealand with my family
New Zealand with my family, but DH won't hear of it so I'll stay right here with him and the boys. :)

Now I will tag. Piglottie, Noo, Terri and Tana No obligation to do this however! :)
