7. My mail is delivered to a post office box.
8. I own lots and lots of cookbooks, yes I’m addicted!
9. I have a subscription to the great food mag “SFI, Super Food Ideas”, yes I like to cook and need inspiration to satisfy the family.

  6. Hello!

    Great list. I can relate to a few of those, mainly being terrible at anything mathematical (I can't work out any fractions higher than fifths!) and wanting that Canon EOS. Ooooh, and the 1.4/50mm lens. And the money that will miraculously fall out of the sky to fund them!

    Good luck with the first days of school!
