Strange calculator then

I meant to ask what is you given name? Jemima? (ducks before getting something thrown at me) :D

I enjoyed reading this - I might even do one myself! Did you feel cheated over lack of a = button!

Sian said...

There are some interesting little nuggets in there! I applaud anyone who has their children at home - wow! Now I think I might have to go and measure myself to see if the shrinkage has started..

Dawn said...

I'm intriged to know what you given name is too!

humel said...

I am enjoying seeing this list popping up everywhere :) I'm sharing mine tomorrow! Great to get to know you better xx

furrypig said...

great to read your list! I had DD in a midwife led unit (in and out in about 12 hours) and DS was born at home. I think I am guilty of your pet peeve and I apologise now!!! I am addicted to apostrophes!!!! xxx

The 'frozen Christmas pud' caught my attention...and I'm curious about your given name too!

I think learning people's mother's names is one of my favorite parts of this list! And I want to ocme eat ribs and nansi goreg with you!

Missus Wookie said...

Scientific calculators are fun - I love anything that makes my life easier.

I *intended* to have both of mine at home but instead.... hmm that might be a Sunday story ;)

Asparagus is lovely and I'll happily eat yours and give you the nansi goreg (although you'll have to fight Wookie) but he'll leave the ribs to us.

alexa said...

I really like these - such a lovely way to let us get to know you more. :). Is the zoo animal a love or a hate?

Angelfish said...

I'm loving reading these lists and finding out all sorts of little facts about people. I shared mine earlier in the week.

these lists are interesting! but hating asparagus wouldn't go down well round here - it's a yearly highlight and obsession!
