Write 10 diferent points explaining why you like summer
I don't know what the smell of this one is called but it is unmistakable.
Is your tool box tidy?
Ah! I replied to the last but one.
To answer @ShowerGel
Driving in daylight
Cycling without leggings and balaclava
Fresh air in the house without freezing
Watching runner beans shooting up the pole
People are more cheerful
Holidays are coming soon
Sitting in the garden with a good book
Washing fluttering on the line
SATS are over
It's not Christmas
Is your tool box tidy?
What's a tool box? 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?
6 or 7 inside.
There are feral chickens sleeping on the verandah tho' so that would me in the minus range!
What was the last non fiction book that you read and would you recommend it?
Dear Daughter of a Narcissistic Mother - Danu Morrigan
Yes I recommend it.
10. Its not Christmas
Do you have any ideas on how to improve the Christmas sh ite?
Spend November and December in Saudi.
Does your TES handle have any significance (that you can share)?
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?
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?
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?
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?
England and yes!
When was the last time you cried?
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?
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?
Nope! I'd love to learn Mandarin or Spanish though.
Have you ever been skinny-dipping?
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?
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
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!
