Geneablogger Meme: The Book of Me, Written By You – Prompt 1 - Who Are You?

As the http://geneabloggers.com/ website says, Prompt 1: Who Are You?
The prompt for week 1 is a recognized psychology test: Ask yourself 20 times “Who are you?” Each time you should give yourself a different answer, and if you can easily go beyond 20 entries then that is fine too. This prompt is about how YOU see YOU.
My answers sound a lot like Jill Ball's (sorry Jill, trying not to copy!), but I think to be a genie we think a certain way, and like many of the same things. Jill's answers to the Geneameme are here: http://geniaus.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/i-am-procrastinator-book-of-me-prompt-1.html
I am:
an eternal student - always learning
an enthusiastic genealogist & family historian
a daughter & step-daughter, sister, niece & aunty, cousin to many
a wife to Dean
a mother of 4, & mother-in-law to 2 (if partners count, which I think they do)
a good friend & listener
a Jill-of-many-trades as far as work goes: library technician, accountant/bookkeeper, optometrist's practice manager, bookstore assistant manager, medical secretary
an avid reader
a novice blogger & writer
spiritual but not religious
messy but wishing I was more organised
a spelling nazi
non-judgemental - see? English spelling for us Aussies ;)
not the slightest bit interested in gourmet food or cooking
a feminist
myopic - maybe literally & figuratively
movie-lover (but only certain types of movies, same goes for TV series)
the household's fix-it person
too pale to enjoy going out in the sun, therefore a shade-seeker
a dreamer, especially about the design of my ideal house
There, 20!!! That was both easy & hard at the same time. Just like life, I guess.
Bring on week 2!


  1. I'm a spelling Nazi too! Nice to meet you!
