  3. I have seen United win (1977), draw (1983) and lose (1995) in an FA Cup Final.

  6. I am the only person in my family not to have broken a limb.
  7. I have stood on the top of Ayers Rock.
  8. I joined a gym on 1 December 2007. Since then I have lost 1 stone but I’m sure it will turn up somewhere.
