Top Ten Tuesday #115 - (Not Very Interesting) Facts About Me...


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fabulous girls cover at The Broke & The Bookish. This week's topic is -

Ten Facts About Me

I very rarely talk about anything personal on this blog so here are 10 facts about me  that readers of the Outsider may or may not know. I warn you now, there are no startling revelations!

  1. I collect espresso cups and tea cups & saucers. I never use them as most are too pretty to put coffee or tea in but still, my collection is expanding!
  2. I also collect Funko Pops! This is not a unique thing, I suspect hundreds (if not thousands) of bloggers do as well. My collection has grown in size from 3 two years ago to 56 as of yesterday...
  3. If anything is owl or fox related I have to have it. Seriously! I have totes, socks, pens, journals, mugs and a million other things all with owls and/or foxes on. I'm considering starting to collect sheep-related things thanks to my little blog sheep :)
  4. I'm one of those annoying people that learnt to read before I was three. My mama was a huge reader and encouraged me daily. I thank her every day for teaching me.
  5. My beloved mama died at the end of 2012, she had pancreatic cancer and passed away just 7 weeks after diagnosis.
  6. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. It's not osteoarthritis (although I have that too) but a disease of the auto-immune system. I have had my left knee joint replaced and both my hips.
  7. I have 2 sisters, all 3 of us have red hair!
  8. I have 4 nephews and 2 nieces, the oldest is 29 and the youngest is 6.
  9. I'm a bookseller, the best job (apart from a librarian) for a bookworm.
  10. I collect horde multiple editions of my favorite books. Pride & Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, The Secret Garden, Alice In Wonderland and Jane Eyre are my biggest collections!
  11. Bonus Fact - I have a tattoo that I got the day I turned 21. I love that I have a tattoo but I really wish I chose something different...

  3. *whispers* I have no idea what a FunkoPop is? I will just scurry off and google that sucker, lol! I DO know what Foxes and Owls are though and that's awesome that you collect them!

    1. No! Don't look! I wish I didn't know what they were... I started off trying trying to just get bookish pops but then I just went slightly mad!

  4. I love Funkos but yet only have one. lol I really want the Dark Crystal collection but haven't managed to find it yet and am worried it won't be one that is easy to track down.
