25 Things You Had No Desire to Know

Meme time. Because I can. 1. Name someone with the same birthday as you.

Against the outside wall of the church hall during a youth fellowship social event. 3. Have you ever seriously vandalized someone elseโ€™s property? No. Nor humorously either. 4. Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex? Yes, but only for fun ๐Ÿ˜› 5. Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?

One word meme

I’ve seen this one floating around in various forms a bit lately and I had it tucked away in the back of my mind for a day like today. It’s day 24 of NaBloPoMo and the muse was not visiting. So a meme it is – one word answers to a bunch of questions which may or may not mean something, you decide ๐Ÿ˜› 1. Where is your cell phone? Table 2. Your significant other? Hubby ๐Ÿ™‚ 3. Your hair? Dishevelled 4. Your mother? Awesome 5. Your father? Generous 6. Your favourite thing? Peace 7. Your dream last night? Forgotten … Continue reading One word meme

Better late than never?

Many moons ago, back in March to be precise, I participated in a blogging meme titled Want a gift from me? I was supposed to deliver those gifts within a month of posting the offer. Here we are almost 8 months later and it hasn’t been done – man am I ever slack! Time to remedy the situation I think. Alix, Mel and Marjorie, I know the gift was supposed to be a surprise but I have these super cute Christmas earrings so I’m kind of hoping that you all have pierced ears and a fondness for Christmas sparkliness, can … Continue reading Better late than never?

Sorry, it’s just a meme

The trick with this one is to type your first name followed by “needs” into Google and then list the first 10 results that pop up. I seem to have run into a bit of a problem with other Miriams having already done the meme so I’m exercising some editorial discretion and picking out the better ones. Here we go: Miriam needs… Miriam needs a Productivity Buddy to help her stay on track – What an excellent idea! Miriam needs our support – yes, I need you all. Right NOW! Be supportive! Miriam…needs some help debugging her online shop – … Continue reading Sorry, it’s just a meme

What the heck…

Alix asks have you got the cajones? Post a picture of yourself right now. As you are right now. As you read this. No running to get dressed or put on make up or fix your hair or whatever. Just YOU! Anyone brave enough to play along? Ready… Set… CLICK!. Apparently the answer is yes, yes I do. And here I am at 1:00am, slightly bleary-eyed but otherwise pretty much as you’d see me on any average sort of day. I didn’t even need move from my spot on the lounge to do this, thanks to the webcam in my … Continue reading What the heck…

Want a gift from me?

Liz of Eternal Lizdom is being crafty and is going to share her talents and she’s inviting her readers to do the same. The deal is that I am supposed to follow these rules: This offer does have some restrictions and limitations: 1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make! 2. What I create will be just for you. 3. It’ll be done this next month. 4. You have no clue what it’s going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or something sewn.I may draw or paint something. I may bake … Continue reading Want a gift from me?

First Born

MPJ tagged me for this over on Facebook but because I’m bloody minded and stuck in my ways I’m doing it here rather than there (it shows up there anyway ’cause I have my blog feed updating Facebook). One for the mums – all about your first born. 1. WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED?Yes, well, in the sense that we stopped trying to avoid one – it happened a bit quicker than I’d anticipated though. 2. WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME?Yep, for 4 years. 3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?Happy ๐Ÿ™‚ 4. HOW OLD WERE YOU?25 5. HOW DID YOU … Continue reading First Born

Interview time

I’ve been a little slow with this one! Back at the end of January Liz at Eternal Lizdom invited her readers to request an interview from her, which I duly did. Shortly afterwards, her questions arrived in my inbox and I opened a draft post, began to write, got stuck and it’s been sitting there ever since. Today I determined to finish – and here it is. This is one of those pass-it-on meme type things so if you want me to interview you, leave a comment and say โ€œInterview me!โ€ and I’ll send you 5 questions to answer. Liz … Continue reading Interview time


Yep, it’s the Facebook 25 random things meme, I’ve been tagged often enough now that I figure it’s time to do it. I have one ear that sticks out further from my head than the other. When I was in my late teens a doctor suggested I might want to have surgery to “fix” it. I didn’t think it was broken, after all I can hear just fine with it thank you. When I was pregnant with David I really regretted calling the cat James. We may well have used the name for a child had it not been already … Continue reading 25
