My First Meme: 5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

I have been tagged by Nick at TCRA to do this 5 Things You Prob­a­bly Don’t Know About Me.
1. I was born on the same day as my Great Great Great (I think its 3!) Grand­fa­ther. He was born in 1838 146 years before me.
2. When I was born, or short­ly after, I was cov­ered head to toe in eczema. I’ve now large­ly grown out of it apart from the odd patch here and there. The most trou­ble­some patch, behind me knees, dis­ap­peared after a ski­ing trip with the Chris­t­ian youth organ­i­sa­tion Cypher when I was 14.
3. I went to casu­al­ty 4 times in 3 years at senior school for sports relat­ed injuries.
4. Some of you might know this one, but I’m stuck, ha! I worked in an old school style hard­ware store as a Sat­ur­day boy from the age of 16 to 18. I went back to work there in the sum­mer as well and real­ly quite enjoyed it!
5. I am a God-Father to the two sons of my old boss at the pub I worked in before I came to uni. Sad­ly I don’t see them much but I do pray for them as its the clos­est I can get to ful­fill­ing my role as God-Father.
Ok, I’m sup­posed to tag some peo­ple now, I don’t know of many read­ers I have here so I’m going to leave my invites open and if I come across some­one then I will add you!

  1. Eczema… It’s a hor­ri­ble thing, I was exact­ly the same as you when I was born 15 years ago, cov­ered from head to toe. I still get it but not as bad. My worst patch would be the same as what yours was, behind the knees, although my fin­gers used to get pret­ty bad, although they appear ok now.
    I think I inher­it­ed my eczema from my moth­er; she used to have eczema pret­ty bad as well… At least you have grown out of it now. I can’t wait till I have!

  2. Sor­ry to hear that Aidan, it cer­tain­ly is a hor­rid thing. I hope you do grow out of it, I’m sure you will, I haven’t grown out of it total­ly, it still flares up from time to time most­ly when I am stressed!
