Many thanks to my online pals, Ann at Inkpots and Quills and Hot Cross Mum herself Hazel, for passing this challenge on to me! The deal is that I have to list 6 untruths and 1 half truth about myself. So here goes: which of these things is not like the other?

I am a fish lover. I love to eat anything that comes from the sea (well except Dolphins I suppose). I cook fish many times per week and everyone in this house has a huge IQ as a result!

My husband has a mistress – one whom he openly flaunts and massages in the front garden with alarming regularity.

World renowned author, Alexander McCall Smith, of the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency fame is an honorary member of our Laid Back Literary Ladies Society.

I have the most wonderful long and sexy legs and like nothing better than tottering about on vertiginous high heels – especially my black FMB’s.

I am a sports fanatic. I love all football – rugby and GAA especially. I play for my local GAA team and have season ticket to Croke Park. I run 4 miles every day, before the kids get up.

I hate cats. I especially hate it when I go into someone’s home and there is a big cat sitting on their dining table. How awful. And dangerous – don’t they carry all kinds of diseases?

So – which is half true? It’s over to you.
