Three Things Thursday

imageThis was an idea I originally saw on Jenny in Neverland last year, and then a similar thing appeared on Facebook a few weeks ago. I thought it would be a fun idea to try it myself…

Three names I go by:
(Of the printable, non-offensive ones…)
1. Sue (which is odd for me, as until I’d moved to Birmingham nobody ever called me that)
2. Suzie
3. Madam (the school that I often work at insists that female staff are referred to as ‘Madam,’ instead of ‘Miss.’ Even after 4 years I still find it odd.)

Three things I blog about:
1. My daily life – almost in the form of an online journal.
2. Things that amuse me.
3. Restaurants I visit.

Three places I have visited:
1. New York
2. Pompeii
3. Barcelona

Three places I would like to visit:
1. Tokyo
2. Sydney
3. Las Vegas

Three places I have worked:
1. A well-known fast food restaurant. (I was there for eighteen months and can categorically state that if any other stores are like the one I worked in, the horror stories you have heard are most likely to be true).
2. Supervisor at a nightclub (best job ever – like getting paid for a night out).
3. Secondary school.

Three favourite drinks:
1. Volvic Lemon and Lime water, straight from the fridge so it’s ice cold.
2. Raspberry mojito.
3. Amaretto sours, with the egg white.

Three favourite things to eat:
1. Garlic and rosemary roast potatoes.
2. Yorkshire pudding.
3. Chocolate fondant.

Three memories I cherish:
1. Sitting on a balcony in Malia at 2pm on a blisteringly hot day, with a beautiful view of the ocean, sipping a drink and smoking a cigarette whilst listening to Eva Cassidy’s ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’
2. Last Boxing Day with my whole family – our partners were all with us and we sat, played games and laughed lots. Can’t get better than that.
3. Watching a cellist perform Bach’s ‘Air’ outside the Sacre Coeur in Paris.

Three things I am looking forward to:
1. Going on holiday with the whole family – we’ve never done this before and I’m sure it will be a laugh…
2. A few days to myself. When that will be, I don’t know, but I like to have a few days alone every so often just to recharge my batteries.
3. The surprise I have planned for The Bloke next month.

Three words I love to use:
1. Cherub – I call my students this every day and I love the confused look they always get on their faces.
2. Nonsense.
3. Shrubbery, usually with a Monty Python style accent.

Three dreams I regularly have:
1. That I can fly (those of you who know who Keith Harris and Orville were will know the song I currently have in my head).
2. My teeth fall out.
3. I’m in a school I don’t know, I can’t find my timetable and every time I try and ring my mum (?) to help me I keep pressing the wrong numbers. That’s always a fun one…

  1. It makes more sense for you, being a teacher, but I often have the school dream. Usually it’s either the day of a big exam and somehow I haven’t revised or it’s the start of the new school year, I can’t find my timetable and no-one seems able to tell me where I need to go. I probably don’t need to tell you that I wake up exhausted the next day!
    I love Yorkshire puddings. My mum always used to sneak me an extra one when she did a Sunday roast πŸ™‚

  2. I share your first two dreams! The flying one is a lot of fun. After two decades, I thought I would have a better handle on how to steer around high rise buildings. Nice post πŸ™‚

  3. By your lists of 3, you are a healthy person, Suzie. I suspect it’s one of the biggest reasons you have such a large following. Readers get agitated reading the trial and tribulations of those who can never get their act together and complain all the way down the hole. No matter your problems, you always figure them out, you move on, and you genuinely enjoy so much.
    You’ve got me thinking about my 3’s.

  4. Awesome list – always interested to hear about people’s dreams too – I have the strangest dreams they are never EVER normal! More like a Dali painting but it fascinates me what others dream of 😊

  5. Reblogged this on Teachezwell Blog and commented:
    Suzi was one of the first teachers I discovered when I started blogging. She does a LOT in the blogging world and has awesome suggestions for improving your blog. She’s hilarious, organized, and her authentic sharing has been a terrific encouragement to me. I hold Suzi responsible (!) for helping me share more personally and well, helping me enjoy blogging more than ever. This post is a cool way to start sharing yourself without TMI. Enjoy!

  6. What a fun idea! Surely the teeth falling out is more of a nightmare? Hope you make it to Sydney – you’ll love it. I live in the Blue Mountains (about 45 minutes drive from Sydney).
