Questions four you!

I picked up these questions from Alison at the fabulous Writing Wishing blog.  So here is a bit about me.  Grab the questions at the end of the post and play along if you want.

Four names that people call me, other than my real name.

Clara (most times this is what people seem to hear when I tell them my name in this country, I blame accent confusion)

MUUUUUUUUM!

Clare Bear was the nearest I got to a nickname.

Clack (I honestly once got a coffee in Starbucks and this was written on the cup as my name!)

Four jobs I have had (not counting current jobs)

Usher at Nottingham Playhouse.

Saturday girl at Lincoln Box Office.

Bell Ringer at the village church (I think we got 5p per practice and if we rang for a wedding we got 10p!)

Directory Enquiries at British Telecom.

Four movies I have watched more than once

The Incredibles

A Bug’s Life

  1. This is a great way to find out more about you! The other day I was called “Keiran” instead of Karen at Gloria Jeans – did I somehow pick up a New Zealand accent by mistake? I might have to do these questions as a blog post, a bit like a variation on Taking Stock x

    • I think I will do another taking stock at the end of the month or beginning of December. I like these posts on other blogs and I like to write them too!
