well a little bit anyhow. Just read hubbybears thread and realised I hadn't introduced myself either (although I 'get about' a little bit so you've probably already picked up a lot about me)
I'm Gwen (25 nearly 26), married nick (30) (hmm wonder where I came up with "Gwenick" from LOL) for 5yrs. Got two little boys Tafara (4yrs) and Tongai (13 months). Live in wellingborough, but have also lived in Yorkshire, Edinburgh, Bedford and Zimbabwe.
Full time SAHM mum, part time director of music at church, argumentative, but not really as horrible as I seem. Bit of a wimp really doesn't take much to make me cry
I'm sure there's something else you probably all want to know but I can't remember - so you'll have to ask if you want to know (but you won't be 'guaranteed' an answer
Huggy - DH chose their Zimbabwean names, and I chose their english middle names (well ok DS1 doesn't have an English name but that's a whole new story). It just so happened that the names we both agreed on worked 'better' with the Zimbabwean name first - we didn't have a preference either way just happened.
Hi Gwenick. Welcome to mn! This is weird but you could be me! I grew up and was confirmed as a Methodist, though have also been round the houses and ended up happily settled in a C of E.
Not only that, but I'm married to a Zimbabwean too! He hasn't been home in over a decade and misses it terribly sometimes. He's from Bulawayo and is desperate for us all to visit there one day when we can afford it. Our first two children have Irish names though - that'll be down to me. Ds2's name is Biblical as we couldn't find another Irish one we liked as much as the first two.
Probably wouldn't - but he'd probably know of the school he went to Prince Edward School in Harare, also went to Eaglesvale school for a while too.
I spent 2 1/2yrs out there after leaving school - was 'supposed' to be my gap year before going off to Edinburgh UNi - but met the man of my dreams (and don't Zimbabwean men have better manners!) so threw all my plans in the bin
I have to confess we've only been back once since I left school in '97. We visited my brother up there (out in Gilmerton though!) for a long weekend in August 2000 - was VERY pg with DS1 at the time. He got us tickets for the Tattoo and had a great time. We're 'hoping' to visit again sometime in the next year or so - still got friends up there (was the organ scholar at St. John's - corner of princes st) and still in 'semi' contact with my old headmaster (sounds dodgy but it's not honest LOL)
