I’m not all bad!

July 4, 2007


I’m not a fan of tagging, or rather being tagged. But Earthpal has done the deed, so here goes…..

  • I hate my feet. My toes make me cry, they are so ugly. Since I was about 11 or 12 I realised they are not nice to look at. During a P.E. lesson in first year, when another pupil said, “What happened to your toes?” I knew there was a problem.
  • I’ve mentioned this in another meme..I don’t touch handrails.
  • I collect clutter and it drives Hubby mad. He de-clutters when he has a strop on and that drives ME mad because he’s so ruthless. I appreciate it when he’s finished, though.
  • I hate the dishwasher.
  • I’m from Lancashire, but lived in Yorkshire and miss it more.
  • My shower needs cleaning and I don’t want to clean it.
  • My cleaner has come back from Poland and she loves cleaning. ūüėČ
  • I worked in Boots when I was 19 and dropped a T.V. down the storeroom stairs. The Manager was at the bottom of the stairs when it happened. I was asked to leave the same day.
  • I worked in Kenyons Bakery shortly after that, and again, was asked to leave. I’m not the Carol Vorderman of maths and couldn’t add up mentally. I was pretending to add up and was overcharging . A lot…
  • That’s me in the header waterskiing on Windermere with my best friends’ future¬†husband. He was driving the speedboat. They weren’t married at the time, but he had the hots for me. I think he still does.

I hope she doesn’t have a blog!

And so that I may also run this with the Thursday Thirteen thing, here’s a another three things about me you’ll find fascinating……. yeah, roight!

  • I dribble on my pillowcase.
  • I don’t like big dogs.
  • When I was at junior school, I was made to stand in a corner because I said the ‘Milk, milk, lemonade’ poem. I was caught reciting it by a Nun. I remember her name and face. I’m still out to get her for making me wet my pants!

More Thursday 13’s here.

July 4th

July 4, 2007

¬†Barb at A Chelsea Morning has a lovely idea for the soldiers who are in Iraq.¬†Take a look…

¬†¬†Overwhelmed at¬† Overwhelmed with Joy¬†has a bit of fun going on.¬† A Pay It Forward Book Exchange. I’m already a Bookcrosser but I think this is a much¬†better idea. I left a couple of books out ‘in the wild’ with Bookcrossing and they weren’t found. One was thrown in the bin because the shop where I’d left it, was then closed and refurbished!

¬†¬†¬† As you can see by my sidebar, I love Food Blogs. I¬†enjoy looking at recipes and pictures of good food. I found this recipe and I think the children will love it. I made my Summer Activities Planner on Monday. Remember this post? And I’ve added a couple of baking days. I found and added another food blog called Val’s Kitchen¬†and another Cara’s Cravings¬†I’m looking forward to reading more from them…

We’re off to Joey’s now for lots of fun! Byeee………..

 Happy July 4th to my American friends!
