I'm a Beautiful Tagged Blogger and Annie Needs a Home

First to all my bloggie friends across the ocean in the land of the
U S of A:
Annie needs a home asap. Yes she does! Please help if you can.


Now the lovely Niki from Wool n Nuts nominated me for this rather lovely swirly award:




To earn this I'm to tell you 7 interesting things about me:

1) I rode a camel across a tiny expanse of the Saharan dessert. Poor camel.

2) I once believed a silly tourist guide who said we were about to visit "Mr and Mrs Troglodyte".

3) I shared a genuine hashish pipe. I think I slept for a week afterwards.

4) I once had a skinhead haircut (now I have lovely flowing locks thank you very much! LOL!)

5) I wasn't meant to be. My parents had 3 girls, wanted a boy, got the boy, they said, nuff already and then I came along.

6) I used to hide under a table - any table, it had to be a table - when scared: a fact my mother never fails to tell everyone. Even at my age.

7) When I was 25, I went to a psychic who predicted I was to have one child - a daughter - when I reach the ripe ol age of 42. EEEEEEEEEK!



I got tagged!!!! The lovely Stephanie Cheryl from Craziness, College and a Little Creativity tagged me!

So to be (cousin) It, I must now complete the sentences below:

I like..... marmite.

I love .... Charlie and all my cats gone over the bridge

Today .... was rainy!

I hate.... ignorance

I (secretly) like... .oh he knows!


I'm cheating a little. I think I'm supposed to have ten things I like, ten things I hate, one I love, one I secretly love, and one today etc etc.

Charlie says:


The light - it burns!!! Please turn it off and go to bed! Purr-meow!

I nominate and tag:

Congratulations on the award. And thanks so much for including us. We will get it posted as soon as possible.
And love the pictures of Charlie. He looks like he is very happy. Has Charlie been outside before he came to live with you???
Hope you have a wonderful week end.

Kea said...

Camel-riding, hash pipes and skinhead haircuts? Now, you've led a very interesting life!

Thanks for the nomination. Ten things I like, hate, etc? Ohhh, I think I'll have to cheat on that one too. LOL.

Lovely to see another Charlie photo; yay!

Brian said...

Congrats on the award!!! Oh yea, thanks for tagging me, I was tagged earlier in the week, maybe I shall look for another folder!

Theresa Milstein said...

I hope the dog finds a good home.

How was the ride on the camel? Why poor camel?

You were brave to shave off your hair. The shortest my hair has even been is that high school photo I posted once. I'll never go that short again.

I like these pieces of information about you. Gypsies, camels, hashish, skinhead look...

ABBY said...

A camel...wow that must've been a real experience!

Concats on your awards!!

Charlie you are such a cutie we just want to give your snorgles...

Thank you! I've got to be away from blogging for a little while as things are very hectic but it's very nice to be thought of, I'll see if I can find some things to say about what I like and don't when things have calmed down!
That tummy of Charlie's is wonderful! xx

Hi Marg

Awww apparently Charlie stayed out and came in at 9pm in his previous home.

I was abit worried that maybe he'd want to be outside immediately but although he likes staying on window sills, he's more and more making his nest in my open wardrobe and my bed!

Hi Ann

The best thing about the psychic was where I had my reading. I was in Bronte county - Howarth! And this little psychic place was in the middle of this really steep hill my friend and I had to climb to get to the bronte parsonage. We were so unfit and so tired we thought - let's go in here to rest. they had a tea room and a psychic! LOL!
