Share something special!

I'vee been thinking through time we've all joined the forum for one reason or another all stemming from our asthma. so i thought it might be nice if we could all share something interesting about ourselves.

whether its a special talenr. little secret or a fairy tale etc (it might be the smallest thing to you but it might just make someone else's day. be as wild with the details as u wish make someone smile!

let the fun commence:

I took up Tae kwon do at the age of 38 (4 years ago). I became English Champion at sparring for my level in 2007 and retained the title in 2008. I am competing in the English Championships again in November. I am now training to take my black belt next year. I still manage it despite now having asthma and cancer treatment. I trained during chemotherapy whenever I was able, and even took silver in the Southern Championship during the chemo.

That's amazing Caroline, I'm very impressed.

I've always been really interested in the Titanic and when I left work in 1997 (had my son) I read everything I could get my hands on about the Titanic and did some of my own research. Joined the Titanic Society and have quite a big collection of books and papers on the subject. Family and visited 2 exhibitions in London which we found fascinating.

dont know if it 'special' lol but when i was younger i was very supple and double jointed-a bit like cheryl cole (hyper mobility). it was a great party piece especially when hammered. shame i dont look like her and im certainly not supple any more, cant even bend my thumb lol

That's a very special thing you have done, Glynis. Nan would've been proud of you.
