8 passions, things to do, etc - tagged by Ali

I was tagged by Ali to do this meme of 8. It was actually a lot harder than I thought; I think it's the narrowing it down :)

8 passions in my life
Dion!
Notebooks
Handbags
Organising
Muffins
Pasta
Getting things done
Watches

8 things to do before I die
Have children
Write a book
Visit New York
Travel all over the world speaking to groups
Visit Ireland (May 2008)
Go on a cruise to Jamaica
Appear on a TV show
Work in another country for a year

(if I was asking someone else these questions, I’d say, “so what’s stopping you?”)

8 things I often say
Focus
I love you
Kiss me, D
Yes, you do! (often when people say “I don’t have a choice”)
No!
Cool
By the way…

thanks for tagging me Marcia, unfortunately someone else beat you to it and I tried to do the MeMe a couple of weeks ago.

It certainly was challenging trying to come up with the lists :)
