Oh Granny!

Granny tagged me! She wants me to tell you seven of the weirder facts about myself! Oh well, just because granny’s nice and in Spain, I’ll give it a go.

1. When I was a child I had my tonsils removed ... twice!

2. For a long time I believed that cows sit down when it rains so as to keep the grass dry for the fairies.

3. As a teenager I had my mother iron my hair. Picture the scene. I bend over the ironing board, hair spread out. Mother places brown paper over hair.. and irons. Were there really no such things as hair straightening tongs in those days?

4. I can recite from memory, the whole of The Walrus and the Carpenter.

5. I always count the numbers on the registration plates of vehicles. When the numbers add up to 17 ... I feel like something good is going to happen. If I find three ‘17s’ in one day then it’s going to be a WOW day!

6. I like to set my alarm clock to be 5 minutes fast so that I won’t be late.

7. I use tweezers to pluck the hairs from my legs. It takes time but is very satisfying and much better than using a razor.

Our Government in its wisdom, has just shepherded a new anti tagging bill through its first reading in Parliament. Sorry granny but I’m going to pass on passing this tag on.

However, feel free dear readers to have a go at listing your seven weird facts. I found it quite revealing so thanks granny ... and, oh yes, I love rainbows!

I've never had my tonsils removed but a doctor once looked in my throat and told me they weren't there any more.

Maybe you got my tonsils.

Glad you approve granny ...

I envy the being able to recite from memory The Walrus and the Carpenter. :-)

I have to thank the kids for that bluest ... they had to learn it in school for a play they were doing ... somehow it stuck with me.
