This and that

Well, I am honoured.

July 19, 2009

Look, another award. I am feeling quite special right now. Thanks to the fabulous Dulwich Divorcee for this unexpected honour.

I have to list 10 facts about me and then pass the award on to 7 other blogs. The power may go to my head people. But first, my favourite subject, moi!

1. When I was 5 I got a scented rubber (strawberry) stuck up my nostril and my Mum had to come and collect me from school and take me to the hospital to have it extracted. I thought this was jolly good fun, and there was the added bonus of a lollipop from the doctor for being a good girl.

2. I cannot sing to save my life but really wish I could.

3. I love being very silly but mainly in the privacy of my own home. My comic dancing is second to none I tell you.

4. I feel like Queen of the World every time I make my husband laugh.

5. No one I know will play Monopoly with me because I “take it too seriously”. I just like to follow the rules, play right to the end, oh and WIN. What is wrong with that?

6. I love to walk barefoot on the grass.

7. I miss living in Cornwall so much and would love to find a way to move back before Squigler is due to start school (a way off yet but I know how time flies).

8. Mr C is my best friend in the whole wide world.

9. My Mum is my hero.

10. If I had to pick between giving up books or tv for the rest of my life I would switch off the box without a moment’s thought. I love books SO MUCH.

So, the 7 blogs that I am awarding this one to are (I know some of you, possibly all have had this already but I feel like giving it to you, so there!):

    Thank you! I cant wait to write all about myself for a change (smirk!)
    The rubber did make me laugh- do they still sell smelly rubbers? The smell of our youth eh, I wonder what sort of noxious chemicals they contained?

    1. I got a piece of foam from the sofa stuck up my nose, when I was 3. And I have fond memories of scented rubbers. Can smell them now!

    2. Me too.

    5. I will play with you. I also take it a bit too seriously. If you were to talk to my old flatmates from uni they would tell you horror stories about my tantrums over Monopoly.

    10. I could not give up books. Going blind is one of my strongest fears, predominantly because of the inability to read. Audio books are really not the same.

    How funny. A boy at my school got a piece of grape scented rubber stuck up his nose! It was all my fault. I wouldn't let him sniff my whole rubber so broke a bit off to smell. See I am a terrible person!! Thanks so much for popping over to mine x
