My good friend, Jenny, Honey I’m Home has given me the chance to let you know 7 things about myself, and after unloading all my info, I was supposed to pick out 15 other blogs to likewise furnish a ‘Stylish Blog Award’ too.
Quite a headache really, BUT I happened onto Beth’s site Day BY Day (also nominated) and my thanks to you Beth, for giving me a loophole, as I agree with you wholeheartedly in saying everyone is a Stylish Blogger…How on earth could I pick 15 out of all the stylish bloggers I visit and catch up on?. Impossible, quite simply impossible… So I award everyone of you this accolade… and you can pick up the baton of sharing 7 things about yourself if you so wish …
Now for the 7 things……
My name ‘Pen’ (Penelope, Penny, whatever!!) is my middle name, hated by me since childhood , my first name is … not going to say..!!
But I did start up my blog with the name Lady Penelope, after happening across a YouTube video, and therefore it’s all the fault of Gerry Anderson and his Thunderbirds series… Before my time but it looked fun…
I always wear my Manchester United Shirt when listening or watching their games at home, (can’t afford to go to all the matches) … To my mind this is why they have such ‘winning ways.’ 😉
I was born in Darlington, County Durham, at my Grandparents Bungalow, a place which holds very special memories for me. Sadly when they died it was sold and I would so love to be able to afford to buy it back… Although I do wonder sometimes if without those two special people, it won’t feel the same?
- I have a ‘thing’ about recycling, I worry about the planet and what our disgusting habits of a throwaway society is going to do to it’s beauty and it’s wildlife. Have you heard about the ‘plastic garbage patch’ ?
I also have a ‘thing’ about milk, I worry if I don’t have enough in the house. At this precise moment I have 3 x 4ltrs in my fridge. (the plastic bottles are recyclable…) I have no idea if this phobia is some deep, dark memory from my childhood, maybe we ran out for days? Who knows how the mind works, especially mine!!
I wonder daily about life and it’s meaning, I have tried since I was a child to ‘Do as you would be Done By’…a saying I read in the book ‘The Water Babies’ by Charles Kingsley… I took this very literally and went about to do a daily ‘good deed’ … Beware anyone who didn’t need help ‘cos they got it anyway, with a massive smile thrown in!!
SO there you have it, feel free to join in should you want to… I feel better already… 🙂
PS… the font colour went haywire and wouldn’t ‘play fair’ So I managed to marble affect it…To try and make it look as if I meant to do it that way…Sorry if it affects your eyes…It’s making mine water!!
