My First Meme: 5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

I have been tagged by Nick at TCRA to do this 5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me.

1. I was born on the same day as my Great Great Great (I think its 3!) Grandfather. He was born in 1838 146 years before me.

2. When I was born, or shortly after, I was covered head to toe in eczema. I’ve now largely grown out of it apart from the odd patch here and there. The most troublesome patch, behind me knees, disappeared after a skiing trip with the Christian youth organisation Cypher when I was 14.

3. I went to casualty 4 times in 3 years at senior school for sports related injuries.

4. Some of you might know this one, but I’m stuck, ha! I worked in an old school style hardware store as a Saturday boy from the age of 16 to 18. I went back to work there in the summer as well and really quite enjoyed it!

5. I am a God-Father to the two sons of my old boss at the pub I worked in before I came to uni. Sadly I don’t see them much but I do pray for them as its the closest I can get to fulfilling my role as God-Father.

Ok, I’m supposed to tag some people now, I don’t know of many readers I have here so I’m going to leave my invites open and if I come across someone then I will add you!

  1. Eczema… It’s a horrible thing, I was exactly the same as you when I was born 15 years ago, covered from head to toe. I still get it but not as bad. My worst patch would be the same as what yours was, behind the knees, although my fingers used to get pretty bad, although they appear ok now.
    I think I inherited my eczema from my mother; she used to have eczema pretty bad as well… At least you have grown out of it now. I can’t wait till I have!

  2. Sorry to hear that Aidan, it certainly is a horrid thing. I hope you do grow out of it, I’m sure you will, I haven’t grown out of it totally, it still flares up from time to time mostly when I am stressed!

  3. Yeah, stress does appear to be a cause of flare ‘ups’. I do hope I grow out of it, however I don’t expect to grow out of it fully.
