This is my first nomination! Thankyou! I was really happy to be nominated by fivelittledoves to join the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers link up. I stumbled upon her blog one day and read one of her letters to her children, then read them all! Laura writes from the heart so that means lots of laughter (The Out-takes) and lots of tears (Letters to Joseph). So get a tissue and a cup of tea and check out her blog.
I thought this would be easy, just answer 10 questions. Well I got stuck on number 1 and number 8. Too many to chose from, so this has taken me ages and I haven't even started thinking of my questions yet.
This is a great way to find other blogs and get to know a little about the person behind them.
So here are my answers to fivelittledoves questions;
1. Which song would you choose as the soundtrack to your life?
Baba O'Riley by The Who.
I've always thought it reflected my teenage years. I got married at 18 and hitch hiked across Europe to Greece where we lived for about a year. Oh and it mentions my name.
Take lots of pictures and don't lose them!
Work isn't as important as family, spend time with them. Write a diary of what your children say and what they do. In the future you can publish it as a "blog"
Talk to your Nan about her life in Ireland and how she came to London. Visit your mum lots.
Is Gin a food? Gin then. If it has to be something else it would have to be potatoes. I could then make gin with any left over.
To be able to sing. I love singing but I am tone deaf and totally tuneless.
Worry. There's always something to worry about. Usually something that you can't do anything about. Like when they are ill, or if they go away, or catch a bus alone, or travel abroad, or take exams, or change school, or get married, start a new job, quit their job, have children.....oh it just goes on and on
My Mum. I know this is a cliche but she had four children, no mod cons like dishwashers and tumble dryers. She had no help from my dad because men didn't help then, he was too tired from "working" all day. She worked part time to fit in around our schooling. We were well fed, well dressed and loved. She was the cleverest person I know. She knew about everything. When I first started learning French at school she'd say things like "ahh that is from the irregular verb 'être'..... " How did she know that? Other mums didn't!
Odd Sock's and Lollipops
A Slice of My Life..Wales
Fun As A Gran
