Diamonds and three things

I love the way that my google adverts come up with lots of diamond merchants after my blog post yesterday. Mmmmmm, tempting but authors don't earn enough.

Wenlock tagged me with this meme:

Three screen names that you've had: kateallan, katealpha, katea

Three things you don't like about yourself: my ability to procrastinate, my untidiness, when I come over shy for seemingly no reason

Three parts of your heritage: Polish, Irish and lowland Scots
Three things that scare you: conflict, sharing my emotions, hidden toxic chemicals in everyday products
Three of your everyday essentials: coffee, wine, sugar
