I would just like to thank all those who took the trouble to comment on my brief post last evening. I haven't actually tried to comment at all this morning, so we'll see what today brings. You will all know that I am still reading and enjoying your wonderful posts, some of which make me smile, and some of which make me tearful. There's always something different happening out there, and that's what makes our little Blogworld so entertaining and special.
My Mon Ami, Carol, over at Facing50withhumour has very kindly (?!) tagged me in a little game of hers. She really is such a little mynx and is always up to something. I'm sure that most of my Followers follow Carol anyway, but if not, you must pop over to see her. Her writing is just so funny, mostly about her poor hubby, who seems such a lovely man and he has my every sympathy trying to keep up with his wife. He takes her out on wild, windswept walks, mile after mile over rough terrain, in order to keep her fit and 'hot', but is she grateful? Not a bit of it. Moan, moan, moan is all we hear!!
I tried to tell her that I just do NOT do 'games'. If I play Monopoly, I usually end up throwing the board in the air, especially as my husband will sit opposite me with a big smirk on his face, counting all his hotels and money, whilst I am sitting there threadbare and bankrupt. All I can remember about games at school, is standing in front of the goalmouth at Hockey in my navy blue serge knickers, with a hulking great Amazonian female racing towards me at full pelt. I usually used to just freeze to the spot and the other team always managed to win, say, 9 - 0! On top of all that, nobody would speak to me on the long trudge across the muddy field back to the changing rooms. I tell you, my schooldays were very sad and lonely! I always dreamt of being the star of the Netball team but, at about 4 ft nothing in those days, that just wasn't going to happen. Hee Hee!!
Oh well, I had better have a go at this game of Tag I suppose, otherwise you-know-who will be over here to have a go at me.
Do you think you're hot - I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Obviously, I get a bit warm if I sit too close to the radiator.
Upload a picture or wallpaper that you are using at the moment -
This collage is the wallpaper on my laptop. The photos were taken when all the family were together in France last Christmas.
When was the last time you ate chicken? - I love chicken, especially roast chicken with all the trimmings. I cooked chicken legs and thighs a couple of days ago, coated with thyme and rosemary.
The song/songs you listened to recently - I have been playing a CD by Adele a lot lately. I don't expect my American friends have heard of her, but she is wonderful! One particular song of hers is called Make You Feel My Love. If you can Google it, just listen to the words. They are so beautiful!
What Were you thinking whilst doing this - I have a couple of friends coming round for coffee in a couple of hours, so I really must get showered and go up and buy some cake and biscuits!
Do you have any nicknames? - That's an easy one - NOPE! Although I always think Dopey would be a good one for me!
Tag eight blogger friends. Now I just know that you're all sitting there now, shouting "pick me, pick me, pick me!!" Several of my friends have already been tagged I notice. Anyway, here are the lucky ones. Ta Dah!!
GawgusThings - Gawgus writes an amazing fashion blog, but also talks about all things 'gawgus' in her life, from recipes, to photos, to family and friends.
Wallene over at If You Knew My Mother You'd Understand - Wallene is the beautiful daughter of one of my closest blogging friends. I think the title of her Blog is brilliant, and I think she will have a bit of fun with this one!
Martha over at Jelly Shane - Martha's husband is working away at the moment and she misses him very much, now being 'home alone' with two children. I thought perhaps this little game might take her mind off things for a while!
Hubby over at FortifyingyourFifties - Hubby is actually Mr Facing50withhumour, and has been allowed to write his own blog, which is every bit as funny as Mrs Facing50 - go and have a look! He knows me as 'that nice lady from Devon' - bet he's going to love me for this. Hee Hee!!
I know this is a bit of a cheek, but do you mind awfully if I leave my other four choices until tomorrow. I really do have to dash now, otherwise I shall still be sat here in my dressing gown when my friends arrive. Au Revoir!
