I've been given an award from Gem, (thank you so much). Seemingly I have to tell you seven things about myself....are there seven things that you don't know.....hmmm...I'll have to think long and hard about this one!
~
1. I learnt to drive when I was 30 years old, and had my first 200 mile round trip on the motorway just 2 days after passing my test.
~
2. My only real phobias are......false teeth and Daddy Long Legs, I've cured myself of all my others by facing them head on.
~
3. I was the worlds worst daughter for a couple of teenage years....but now my parents are my best friends (along with my Bestest Friend who is Lovely Hubby).
~
4. I have a Guardian Angel. It is there for me whenever I am truly in need. (I'm not sure whether it's a he or she...the voice is neutral....it doesn't matter does it, that it cares is enough.)
~
5. The last one makes me sound potty.....maybe I am.....I like being a bit wacky and off the wall....it's who I am.
~
6. I have 2 tattoos, both mean something special. I will never regret them even when they (and me) are old and wrinkly.
~
7. I have trained lots of people to work in Charity Shops, both volunteers and Managers, I could still do the training in my sleep. I enjoyed seeing the difference it made to a lot of peoples lives, finding new skills and overcoming disabilities both physical and mental. Finding out that they could make a difference to someone elses life by helping for a few hours each week.

There, did you already know any of them? Now I'm off to have a haircut and try and negotiate a cheaper cut for the future, we're seriously into the Challenge now and have decided that EVERYTHING is included in the weekly budget, not just food. Wish me luck.
~
Oops...I almost forgot, I'm supposed to pass this on to 15 more people. I know how busy lots of you are, so if you want to pick this up and run with it please do. I'd love to know 7 things about lots of you....but then I'm a nosy sod!! So if you'd like to take part consider yourself awarded, all you have to do is say you got the award from me and pass it on to 15 of your Blogging chums. Just copy and paste the award from the top of this post.

Normal farm Blogging will resume tomorrow.

  2. Great list Sue. I have a friend who is terrified of Daddy long legs too. She is usually a confident controlled woman but she ends up a mess if she sees one of those ! Makes me giggle.

    One of my hens ended up in the mouth of a neighbour's Gereman Pointer yesterday after she got out. I kept her warm but she went out later. She's lost a lot of feathers & is limping & shaken.

  3. Hi,

    So Anne, we are in competition to be the Worlds Worst Daughter....lol.

    Penny, she'll either survive it not...there's not much you can do. If a chicken decides to die it will, if not it will fight back and pull through. A bit of warm food may help her, if they feel cosseted they sometimes rally round. I hope she's okay.

    Sue xx

  5. you really were not the worlds worst daughter. Just a little rebel, and I did not blame you.
    That is given the cramped conditions we lived in then. lots of love JMS.xxxxx

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
