Everything You Ever Wanted to Know ... And a Lot You Didn't



Simple Beauty invited her readers to join in a game of tag, and I decided it was time for some fun around here. Like Simple Beauty I won't tag anyone but if you want to join in, please leave a comment so that we can all enjoy the game. The game is easy: simply list eight things about yourself in each of the categories. So here goes...


Eight Things I Look Forward To:

1. Spending time with The Most Adorable Granddaughter;

2. Spending time with family;

3. Son#2's graduation ceremony in just under a fortnight (I missed both of my graduations and Son#1 didn't attend his either so I'm really looking forward to attending this one);

4. Summer (last night was so cold!);

5. Having my book published (although that's scary too);

6. The birth of our second grandchild in June;

7. A clean house (and no more renovations - like that's ever going to happen);

8. Heaven!


Eight Things I Did Yesterday:

1. Laundry;

2. Played the flute;

3. Posted my contract to the publisher;

4. Grocery shopping (and apparently there's still nothing to eat - according to my men);

5. Bought some more bulbs to plant;

6. Gave The Most Adorable Granddaughter the quilt I had made for her and watched her face light up;

7. Did about half the ironing (hopefully will get the rest done today);

8. Managed not to burn dinner!


Eight Things I Wish I Could Do Well:

1. Talk to people: friends, strangers, crowds, etc;

2. Play the flute (I'm improving but nowhere near concert standard);

3. Sing (someone sitting in front of me in church a week ago complimented me on my singing but really, I know I'm not that great a singer - I would love to be able to sing and accompany myself on the piano but that's not going to happen);

4. Stick to my exercise programme (I'll get back into it soon, I promise);

5. Friendship (I have a suspicion that I'm a lousy friend);

6. Cook (perhaps if I could cook I wouldn't hate it so much);

7. Garden (as above);

8. Fly (I suspect I must be the worst air traveller ever born - I get clammy at the thought of flying - to get me on a plane, I have to be literally dragged on - the problem is, my family all live overseas).


Eight Shows I Watch:

I'm afraid I can't even list one show that I watch regularly. I prefer to watch our selection of movies or old television series (such as Little House on the Prairie). Sorry!


So now it's your turn, leave a comment on my blog and let me know you've put your eight up :) Then tag your own 8, or do as I've done and leave the invitation open for those that want to play along.

I'd participate, but I'm not sure I could list 8 things in each category ... that would mean too much thinking ...heehee! ;O)

Loved reading your lists though!

Enjoyed reading your lists. I think I might try to participate if I can come up with 8 things in each category.
