I'm it.....and so is my wife

Irishgirlie tagged me with this and I like the self-examination of it all (and I'm on my own in peace & quiet with housework to avoid).

4 jobs I've held:
Accountant - that's my profession and I worked at about a million different companies in the UK doing this job. My absolute favourite job was with Madame Tussauds though. The management team did an amazing job when I worked there. Of course, that, my perfect job was when I got pregnant and left to take on my next job.....
Mother - I've said it before and I'll say it again....the hardest job in the world. Everyone go call your mother and thank her (well, most of you, anyway :-) )
Bookseller - my current part-time job at B&N. Love it.
Santa's Helper - yes, one year when I was still at school, I helped Santa give out presents to his small visitors. What a joke. That's when I learned that children are actually afraid of Santa.

4 movies I watch over and over again:
Love Actually - a great Christmas movie and a great London movie when I'm feeling homesick.
Shallow Hal - love Jack Black, love Gwyneth Paltrow, love George Castanza - it even has Tony Robbins in it. And it was filmed in one of my favourite US cities - Charlotte, NC.
Sideways - a movie about wine, what's not to love? Oh, and it's funny as hell too.
Cars the Movie - obviously I watch this because my boys love it, but it really is a cute movie too :-)

4 places I've been:
Instanbul, Turkey - a beautiful skyline and wonderful people. It's like walking into the past.
Paris, France - like, a million times. It's old hat and not romantic. Although it is quite beautiful. I'm excited to take my boys and share the history with them.
New York City - I want to live there, but only if I have LOTS of money. My favourite city (after London, that is).
Athens, Greece - I went there for a weekend once, but was too sick to enjoy it fully. I need to go back.

4 places I've lived:
South Shields, Tyne & Wear, England - where I grew up.
Watford and Welwyn, Herts - the best suburban homes I had.
London, England - best city in the world and home of my heart.
Fort Myers, FL - too hot, get me out of here.

4 tv shows I watch:
The Office
Law & Order
Seinfeld (we watch repeats all the time - I didn't catch it first time round).

4 people who email me regularly:
Book Club

4 favorite foods:
I know that's 5, but I couldn't take brocolli out, could I?!

4 places I'd rather be:
Skiing in Austria with Hubbs
With my Taid in Wales
Having dinner with Gordon Ramsey - after he cooks it of course.
Learning to sail a boat in the Carribean

4 things I'm looking forward to:
Going to Stitches West with Irishgirlie in a couple of weeks - can't wait.
Going on holiday to NYC/Long Island this summer with the boys.
My oldest, starting Kindergarten in the fall
My youngest, potty-trained.

4 people to tag:
Well, if 4 people read this, consider yourself tagged :-)
