Green days and 7 things....

A bit of a ho-hum week so far…I’ve been really busy with work and I cant wait for my day off!

Spring is definitely here as I’ve got hay fever in a bad way …Ughhh!!! im stocked up on the allergy relief tablets

My crafty pal Jennifer has tagged me to list 7 things about me…ive done this before but here are 7 more things....

* I have double joints in my hands so my fingers can be pushed back in a weird thumbs are like rubber…I can almost bend them back in half!!

* I have curly curly hair so I only ever comb my hair when I wash it….which is every 3 days or so…. If I left it as is, my locks could easily turn into dreadlocks!

* I love undergarments …granny knickers to hold it all in, supporting tights, especially under winter dresses – so streamline!

I even enjoy sleeping with my bra on…(now that’s weird huh?)

* in my past life I must have been a mouse because I love cheese…pecorino, haloumi, fresh ricotta, edam, cheddar….anything really!

my in laws had a dairy farm in Cyprus (which they sadly lost after the 1974 turkish invasion) and my mother in law was a cheese maker …fresh warm Haloumi – Yum!!!

* I cut my finger nails every week or so – I prefer them short

* I have a serious magazine addiction…I need that visual stimulation but after reading so many blogs I don’t think Im the only one…

* I love old images …some people think the past shouldn’t matter but Im intrigued by the clothes , old advertising and the way people lived…if I see an old photo I have to stop and have a look!

Here are my boys enjoying their new gardening tools! lots of fun!

    How sweet that your boys are helping in the garden, looks like lots of fun! Sorry about your hay-fever, it's an irritating allergy to have...I love cheese too, and agree with the magazine addiction :)

  5. Hi A,

    Just wanted to let you know that I ordered the 2008 Diary that you contributed to. I'm so excited!

  6. The past matters in the sense that it is what we learn from, very much.
    I love old everything, and history.
    Your list of 7 things is very interesting to read. The little things say a lot.
    I hope your hay fever eases up soon. I know how miserable that can feel.
    Take care.
