Frollicking Friday

The wonderful Susan Fields nominated me for this really pretty award - thank you, Susan!



To earn it I must reveal 7 true things about myself. Yikes!

1. I can't swim. I've got numerous Certificates of Attendances to prove that I have tried to learn and I've even got the swimming cozzie just in case the Thames breaks its barriers. But alas, I wasn't put on this earth to float...

2. I'm a snorer.

3. I used to want to be "an air hostess" until I stopped growing at 5ft 2 inches (without heels) - this was before the days of Equal Opps.

4. I tend to speak to myself alot. Once in a supermarket (not Waitrose!) I caught myself doing it only because a couple of people were staring at me. In my defence, I didn't know which flavour cat food the Cat would like and was trying come to a decision - not my fault the Cat couldn't come shopping with me!

5. I have a real aversion to mobile phones.

6. I think Barry Manilow is the Second Coming.

7. These days, I cry a lot. Especially after watching Beaches..

Now before I nominate everyone, just another quick note to say: Look what you can buy online AND in bookshops!!!!





And nominations go to you gorgeous guys and gals and if you've got it already, have another one!

It was fun to learn new things about you Old kitty! I can't swim to save myself either.

What a fun post!

Don't know why I haven't been following you. Must rectify that immediately.

Congrats on your pretty awards :)

PS. Talking to yourself in public is probably not a good idea. Men in white coats spring to mind. Just saying .....:)

PS Most people who appear to be talking to themselves in public are really on a mobile phone!

Kitty, you're a sweetie!

I am not a swimmer either. My husband is a great swimmer and he has tried to teach me multiple times, but I just suck at it. When I was 5 years old, I jumped into a 5 foot deep swimming pool coz i saw other kids doing it. Little did I know that I shouldn't be diving into the pool if I didn't know how to swim. so I learned that day. My dad saved me. I remember seeing him pulling me out of the waters with one hand lol.

I'm so glad you liked your award, and I loved learning new things about you! And thanks for the return nomination. :) I think you need to bring the cat shopping with you next time. I don't suppose you have PetSmart there, but that's a pet store where you can bring your pet shopping with you. I usually see at least a dog or two, but I've yet to see a cat - I guess they're not big shoppers.

When I have to make a decision in a drugstore, especially if I'm in a rush, I freeze like a deer in headlights. But I don't know if that's worse of better than talking to myself.

I have friend who has struggled with swimming and has taken countless lessons since I've known her. My daughter is studying which items sink of float in her class. Perhaps you'd like to come for a demonstration?

Thanks for sharing these fun facts about you.

Congratulations on your lovely award and thank you for nominating me. I think all my awards have come from you--lol. I know I can do this one more easily than the liars one--I'm terrible at lying even for the sake of creativity. ;-)

That is very interesting - I am not a huge fan of mobile phones either - I wouldn't have one if I had to pay for it. But since it is cheaper then a land line we use them - I just hate using them anywhere but at home!

And I always talk to myself, and, honestly, often at the store I do have to talk through the cat food choices as well!

Congrats and thanks for passing this lovely award onto Mom. Mom talks to herself too! She is an only kid so she started doing this early for lack of a sibling to chat with!

Awwww!!Wow! My dad saved me from drowning when I was five years old! We were on the beach, I got swept away and he saved me!

Aren't dads great??

Awww so cool that your husband's gives you swimming lessons - that's so sweet!

Take care

Old Kitty said...

Hi Susan Fields

I would love, love, love to bring my cat shopping with me!!! That would be so sweet! The only snag is that I'll have to carry her all throughout, cos she's so wobbly now. And she gets bored very easily too.

LOL!

Take care

Old Kitty said...

Hi Theresa Milstein

LOL!! Strangely enough, I'll probably float! Does that mean I'm a witch?

Yay!

You freeze in mid shop? Awww! I blame shopping!

Hi Kim

Old Kitty said...

Hi Amy and the House of Cats

So glad I'm not the only one who talks to herself especially when buying cat food! It's a serious business - and need a lot of thought!

Old Kitty said...

Hi wildcatwoodscats

Take care

Hi Old Kitty, Thanks so much for this award. Sorry it took so long for me to pick it up, no home computer yet. I am assured I will have it back this week. So behind on my blog comments. So now I must write seven true things about myself. OH NO!
