I've been Tagged...

Thanks Audrey - she's just tagged me so here goes. I have to list 7 things about me and tag 7 people.

My 7 facts:

1. My favourite colour is blue
2. I once climbed over the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and it was one of my proudest moments as I was scared witless before I did it.
3 I have an inate fear of dogs - inherited from my mother and compounded by a unprovoked attack from a stray dog when I was 10 years old. (Woof!)
4 When I was a teenager my ambition was to have my own craft business.
5 I hate all fish (except smoked salmon)
6 I cry easily - especially when someone else starts first.
7 I'm a hopeless romantic!

So there you go...

And My 7 tags:
1. Annamarie
2. Caroline O
3. Jackie M
4. Gertie
5. Beckie
6. Amber Jane
7. Neasa

Yesterday evening our friends BJ and ELaine called over with their little boy Jack for a coffee. Whenever poor BJ calls - he always seems to get landed with a job of some sort - you know moving furniture and the likes... Well the rain cleared up and the kids started requesting their new trampoline so next thing the two lads are opening up the tool box and away they went. It took around 2 hours but they did it and the kids were thrilled to bits. We had a chinese takeout to celebrate. Then it was off to 'The Duke' in town to meet Brian and Helen for a few scoops which was fun. The kids were up at the lark this morning and dressed by 8am and out on the trampoline until the rain started to pour again. The only good thing is - it's a great time to buy garden furniture as it's at knock down prices after the alleged 'Summer' we've had! We did exactly that this afternoon and got caught in a crazy thunderstorm... We won't get to use it until next year though!

I've been working away at my Shimelle online class - have it nearly completed so will post it up as soon as...

BTW have you noticed my new blog banner - that's all thanks to the super talented and generous Jackie who kindly designed it for me. She's a whizz at these things and I am well impressed!

Gorgeous Banner Lainey, hope the rain holds off this week for the party and sure if it doesn't send them out in the rain in their togs, they'll be grand, LOL!

BTW, you've been tagged by me too but since you've done it already you can ignore it - that was good!

Love the banner - Jackie M - you are one very very talented lady.
