Turning 30 - Quiz time!

Turning 30 - Quiz time!

Turning 30, I have turned into my Dad and wrote a quiz for my girl friends this afternoon whilst I was waiting for them to turn up! 

A few of my close friends - am so grateful for the people God has put around me! 

A few of my close friends - am so grateful for the people God has put around me! 

There are 30 questions and each question corresponds to that year of my life: 

Some of the questions are rather obscure, and were not so much to see what people knew about me, but were rather to get some comical answers back!  

There were 5 girlies there and the top score was 16, followed by 11.5 and 11. 

When I got home I asked Mark the questions and he got 24.  He has encouraged me to put this on.  How many would you get / guess right?! 

  1. What time was I born (to the nearest hour)? 
  2. What food did my Dad feed me as a baby when I woke up in the night and he assumed I must be hungry? 
  3. What number house did I live at when I was 3?
