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!

  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.
