    What's a tool box? :p Mr Lardy owns the tool box and I have never lifted the lid. If it's anything like the shed, then I would imagine it is very tidy indeed.

    On a scale of 1 - 10 (10 being spotless), how clean is your house?

    Oh yes! I have chickens. Lots of them. I can barely count them, yet they are all considered to be pets. Most of them have names :)

    What's your earliest childhood memory?
  9. asnac

    I guess I was 2. Standing in my cot crying and crying and no one came. Eventually the woman who lived downstairs from us came in. She gave me a jelly baby. I presume my parents were out and she was keeping an eye on me. She was deaf, and I realised years later that this was probably the reason she took so long to come.

    OK, what's yours?
  10. Motherofchikkins

    Motherofchikkins Star commenter

    I was lying on a bad and had been given a plastic truck with big plastic blocks on top. I couldn't get the blocks to come off and I was crying. I was told later that I was one and a half - it was a Christmas present and was wrapped in clear plastic.

    What was the best holiday you ever had?
  11. lardylady

    lardylady Star commenter

    I went to New York, Washington and Niagara in 2010 with my sister and niece. Absolutely fantastic holiday.

    In which country were you born and is it where you still live?
  12. AnxiousElle

    AnxiousElle New commenter

    England and yes!

    When was the last time you cried?
  13. lardylady

    lardylady Star commenter

    On Saturday. I went to a 1940s day at the Black Country Museum, and there were photographs displayed of children being evacuated. One photo showed a little girl aged about 4, who was having her evacuation label checked. She looked so small and vulnerable that I cried.

    How many siblings do you have?
  14. AnxiousElle

    AnxiousElle New commenter

    12! 7 sisters, 5 brothers. With me there's 13 and in age order I'm number 6.

    Have you ever eaten cake for breakfast?

    Yes, on holiday in Italy. Very civilised!

    Do you speak more than one language fluently?
  16. AnxiousElle

    AnxiousElle New commenter

    Nope! I'd love to learn Mandarin or Spanish though.

    Have you ever been skinny-dipping?
  17. Motherofchikkins

    Motherofchikkins Star commenter

    Yes. We used to go to this deserted beach in the 4-wheel drive and I'd go in if no-one else was around.
    And there was a nudist beach in Greece.

    When was the last time that you were helpless with laughter and what caused it?
  18. ShowerGel

    ShowerGel Lead commenter

    Dunno. Oh I dunno. Oh dunno.
    Oh maybe today but not helpless. Yer know - the kind of helpless when someone trips over or the kind of helpless you have when 15 at school in the middle of Geography and you look at your friend and can't stop laughing...Or... oh I remember when I used to get seriously helpless....
    It was when me and me friend who I went to college with walked up 'n' down Oxford Street and I would nudge her into people and that would be it...
    I could not stop laughing. Then I'd do it again and again and she'd say
    "If you do that again I'm going home."
    And - guess what?
    I would do it again and again and kept on laughing and she would get so cross! But then she'd do it to me and she'd start laughing.
    We said to the people we banged into
    "Oh! Sorry!"
    It was hilarious to keep nudging her when she thought I'd stopped.
    "Oh okay I won't do it again. Sorry."
    Two minutes later I'd nudge her again!
    "Oh sorry!" she had to say to the person she'd sent careering into a number 25 bus!
    I was helpless with laughing. It was all soooooo funny to see her knock into people.
    I am laughing NOW even.
    Thanks for that mother!
