My 1st award EVERRRRRRR


Thanks Miss Scarlett 
Now I have to think of 10 things to say about boring old me.

1- I cry over all sorts of things including books and  movies can be happy or sad and I will still cry I mean how many people cried over the last Toy Story? Serioulsy I am such a sook!! Just ask my family(sook meaning cry baby to my OS readers just in case it means something different where you are)
2-I became a granny for the 1st time at 36
3-My dream is to own lots and lots of land so all my family can have their own little acre near by.The land will have my dream home on it (a girl has to dream)
4-I grew up with a divorced mum and my sis mum did a great job with us and wasnt easy for her  considering she struggled money wise.I wouldnt let her buy me new shoes in my last year at high school even tho I had a huge hole in one so used to put plastic in there but yes got wet feet when it rained.Made me appreciate the little things in life tho.
5-I was 28 before I got my drivers licence and before I got to meet my dad after 18 years and found out I had to half brothers.
6-I used to be a beauty therapist in my other life gave it away after getting RSI in my wrist (repetitive strain Injury) dont miss it.I used to do body piercing in the salon nothing nipply or under the belt tho.
7-Like many other blogging friends I too would love my own shop full of vintagey things but it would have to be my own shop none of this renting caper.
8-We are in the process of getting a loan to build a house in suburbia (yuk) and house will not be old style (no fair) so will need ideas from everyone to make it look good.
9-I love country music and hubby hates it.
10-I also wanted to marry a cowboy and have 12 kids he isnt and he didnt lol

So thats all I can think of hope it wasnt too boring,

Wow! A granny at 36! I bet you were the hottest granny at grandparents' day at school :-) I'm so glad somebody besides me cried at the end of Toy Story 3!

OMG..I am always crying in the kids movies as I have mentioned before...so we would be a good pair sitting together..hahaha. There is no way that I could pierce anything, I get too woozy, funny as I was the deputy first aid officer at work. I am sure that you will make any home look beautiful, old or new. Good luck with the loan. Lastly, thank you for the award, now I just have to think of a few things to mention about me. Bye for now, Tam x

Ah, Nelly, I've always wanted a bit of land, a house large enough that if family friends want to stay a week, it is of no matter. I do host now, but I live in a city apartment...very cramped. Artsy area, though. And I dream of porches to sit with friends, and watch the stars. You made me think of those dreams again. Thank you. TWN

The Widow Next said...

So this is your first award? Fantastic! You deserve it, for being such a lively entertainer, fro sharing your good times and bad, I've laughed and cried with you, for you, from a zillion miles away. You are an amazing lady. Congratulations! And don't stop now...you'll get that bit of land!

Nice to know more about you. Hope you feel better now, my mother is very tough and shes had 4 lots of kidney stones (and 4 children and 3 back surgeries) and said its the worst pain ever and that that injection thingy you had is dreadful. Poor you! You are such a trooper I don't know how you do it all.xx.
