I've been TAGGED! by the oh-so-lovely, talented and admirable Kris Leigh to list the following:

1. Four of my favourite jobs
2. Four of my favourite local places
3. Four of my favourite foods
4. Four of my favourite international places
5. Four name's of people I am tagging
So, of course I am obliged to play along! :) Hopefully, for those of you who don't know me, you'll get to know me a little better. Here goes!
1. Four of my favourite jobs
Well, I have to admit, at 16...I haven't had many paying jobs! Nope, not one! Unless you count blackberry picking in Suffolk. We were paid a ridiculously low amount and it was fun, that is until I fell into the blackberry bush and returned home with a hundred and one prickles in my legs! Apart from that I do voluntary Girl Scouts and Brownie Guides and stuff. So yeah... :)
2. Four of my favourite local places
~ 1 would have to be my garden! Does that count? It's huge and vast and full to brimming of fab places and flowers to photograph.
~ 2 has to be the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Oh my, I used to spend hours as a young child running round the corridors and looking at the photographs hung on the walls.
~ 3...Somerset House! They have the best ice-skating rink there at Christmas and we go every year. It's absolutely beautiful!
~ 4 would be my school. I love my school. The grounds are wonderful, green as anything, and we have a swimming pool and great sports facilities there too. I love school.
3. Four of my favourite foods
~ My favourite food EVER is haloumi cheese! Oh my, it's absolutely really truly is. Sooo yummy, especially when grilled. Mmmm...
~ coool and juicy and totally rich green! How could you not love it?
~ I also admit to being rather partial to Haagen Daaz Pralines & Cream ice cream. I first tried it when I was 6 and have been having an affair with it ever since. :)
~ Green & Black's Organic Chocolate...yum!
~ Apples! I love apples...any kind, any type. As you probably know from the millions of pictures I take of them. Oops that makes 5...oh well! I guess I'm a foodie [yes, I do read the Observer Food Monthly]... :P
4. Four of my favourite international places
~ Germany! I love Germany...Aachen, Heidelberg, Munich, Berlin...everywhere I have been I have loved! The food, the people, the language, the ethos, the atmosphere...what a great place!
~ Amsterdam, capital of Holland. Home to the Anne Frank Museum, Van Gogh Art Museum, the canals, the...Well, it basically rocks!
~ Boston. I have only been once, to America, and we went to Boston. I was 9. I still remember it so vividly as if it were yesterday. I loved it there.
~ Cyprus. In our garden we had a huge walnut tree and we used to pick them under the glare of the hot October sun. We went swimming and cycling and fishing. It's simply beautiful. I love to travel. :)
5. Four names of people I am tagging
Meanwhile, some recent shots....nothing really that interesting but just some snaps I pulled of the card. BTW, English Lit went pretty well! :)

Ok I'm back again, going for a record # of comments on this post lol..

I've never heard of haloumi cheese.. what does it look like? I'll have to try it, I love different cheeses.

Cyprus sounds absolutely dreamy, you're so lucky! I want to go.

I'll have to go to the places you listed if/when I ever get over to England.. I really need to explore Europe in general by the sounds of it.

At least we know we'll never fight over ice cream.. I can't stand nuts in my ice cream :)

Ok, that's all. I started thinking about your post and realized I had more to say! Hope you're having a good night Lulu. Sound asleep and dreaming of beautiful things I'm sure :P

I love all your lists- makes me smile :) I have NO idea what that cheese is- but I'll have to look for it sometime!
I LOVE that you love Germany- as it's where my mom was from and her whole family is still there- I'm a 100% German :) I've been there so many times in my life- and Munich or should I say Munchen is one of my all time favorites cities :)
