Unaccustomed as I am to speaking...................I've written some notes on the back of my hand...
Many thanks to twighlightgazing for the LOL award,i love it :) I have secretly coveted one of these,and since I don't think I'm very funny, I thought I'd be coveting for longer.
This award comes with some rules,not many thank goodness,not that I don't follow rules,I do....well I have good intentions of following rules ,but I do have a poor memory and need a bit of a hit upside the head with the rule book occasionally.
ok rule 1...Link to the person who gave you the award.....easy...thanks twilightgazing. Love your blog ,glad I found you :)
rule 2...Pass the award on to 7 other people who make you laugh....Oh ... and let them know they have an award,which I will have to do tonight or I will forget.
rule 3...Say 7 things thats people don't know about you or at least you think they don't know. This will be a hard task for me,i'm a blabbermouth and most things about me are out there already.
rule 4...Pass the rules on.... ok got all that?
7 things about me no one knows.............hmmmm...........brain ticking....give me a minute...........maybe more than a minute.........
1...I was a mad ABBA fan in 1977/78. I was 14/15, my walls were covered with posters,I babysat every weekend I could and used all the money to buy the LP's(for the young people,they were big round black things that went under a needle on a turntable) and magazines that I could glean info and pictures for my scrapbook.My friend used to dress as Agnetha and I would dress as Frieda.No, I never had satin hotpants, thanks for asking. I had a ticket for their concert in Sydney but my father refused to let me go because of the huge storm. BAH!!! I cried buckets.
2...I have been mistaken for Asian all my life. Odd really because I have the UK convict ancestors and Italian grandparents on Dads side. People (usually drunk) would try and guess my nationality. And my middle daughter has the same now,only she looks Polynesian.
3. I sang at the Sydney Opera House. True. The Concert Hall,no less. It was me and about 20 of my schoolmates in a choir,in a school Choral Concert competition.Along with 20 other schools. We were the first group to sing there in 1974. The Opera House had only opened in December,so it was hugely exciting. We all wore white. The sound was amazing,I stopped singing so I could listen for a few minutes.
4. I hadn't kept in touch very well with any school friends, and to my joy (thankyou facebook)I've now caught up with my first best friend from Kindergarten. We were friends right through primary school, walked the gauntlet into highschool together on the 1st day,but got put in different classes. For 2 years we had separate friends but were good friends again in our last 2 years of school.Once we left school though,life took us in different directions.We are still in different parts of the country but ti doesn't matter. Its been awesome to find each other again and we seem to have picked up where we left off. Everything's changed but nothings changed.
In the photo I am middle row 1st child on left K is 4th from left.
5...I cannot not eat chocolate. If it's in front of me,it's gone. If it's the last one...it's mine!
This is not me in the photo.Kind of you to ask.
6... I feed my family on about $150au a fornight.this includes groceries as well. I make it stretch...far. After all the bills are paid or put away for, and bits squirreled for xmas and the Bali fund,thats all thats left. We don't each much meat. But I have to borrow off hubby for cigarette money dammit.(and he makes me pay it back)
7...I can pretty much sleep anywhere, tv on ,people talking etc,so long as its not loud repetative noise and I'm reasonably comfy,I can sleep.I'm that person snoring loudly on the train or plane or on your couch.
