Blog Award

I'd really like to say thank you to Penny over at The Hen House for my very first blog award.

Now 7 things you didn't know about me.

1. I'm a twin. I have a twin brother who is 3 hours 20 minutes older than me. My dad was a twin too.

2. My 'baby' brother is 14 years younger than me.

3. I have ultra-sensitive feet and just cannot bear anyone touching them. The mere thought of a foot massage makes me feel sick.

4. I once got caught playing the 'air' drums on the South Circular in London at Midnight whilst sitting at the traffic lights (I was actually playing Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight) - I was so embarrassed!

5. I have 33 cousins, only 9 of which are girls.

6. I once went out to the pub with my best friend and only noticed the next morning that I had worn odd shoes!

7. Like Penny, I'm afraid of heights too. Whilst on holiday, driving down a mountain, I completely freaked out thinking we were going to fall off. I ended up sitting in the back seat, crying, with a towel over my head (so I couldn't see the drop), between my (then) small crying kids who I had totally frightened.

I've got to rush off now to pick up Mr. P from a training course (shame it was not 'how to decorate a living room in less than 3 months') ha, ha! I'll be back tomorrow to pass the award on to 10 of my favourite blogs.

  1. Congratulations to you Jak!
    You deserve it!
    I hate heights too, you aren't alone! I hate walking over piers at the seaside. You can see between the planks of wood down to the sea. Hate it. I have never ever flown. I don't know how I'd get on there.
    Hugs and Love Suex

  2. Great post Jak - well done for the award you deserve it! I can be a bit freaked out by heights - but lifts are my bug-bear - hate them and the tube! ugh **Kim**x

  3. HOW MANY cousins? !!! This was such fun to read. I'm so bad with heights, I feel sick near cliffs or castle walks if the kids go near the edge & of course they are fearless !
    How about a course on " we have lived in this house for seven years, and it seriously needs decorating.... no don't disappear off to your boat - the house... the house... the..."

  4. This was a great way to learn about you considering this was my first visit! Can't believe you hate foot massages!! being 24 weeks pregnant I am dying for one right now!! : ) xo m.
