Achoo! Cough! Splutter! August 2, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — natalian @ 7:38 am

It has been a week of tissues and paracetamol until I could finally drive myself to my Homeopath, only to be given a remedy called “Flu Rid” which tastes like liquid Vicks!  No wonder it’s called ‘Flu Rid’ it tastes so bad I think the virus has decided to pack it’s bags and find a new home!

As I am fairly new at blogging and still trying to figure out how to ‘tag’ and link’, I am going to try and do my first Meme.  Writing anything right now would take more energy than I have, so answering a few questions seems like more fun! This Meme I read on Charlotte’s Web called Forty Things Surprise.   Here goes!

1. My uncle once: was a mercenary. Only found out that scary fact after he passed on to the next realm.

2. Never in my life: have I been to Ireland.

3. When I was five: I wanted to live in our apple tree at the end of our garden.

4. High school was: a lesson in being true to myself.

5. I will never forget: the smells of Sunday Roasts at my Grandma’s.

6. Once I met: the tallest man in the world, (well he was in 1986).

7. There’s this girl I know: who is an amazing friend .

12. Next time I go to church: Mmmm .

17. What I miss most about the Eighties is: Good Music and Monster Munch chips( the original flavour).

18. If I were a character in Shakespeare I’d be: Puck, he was my Matric Mascot. Midsummer Nights Dream was the theme for my wedding – strange I know!

19. By this time next year: I will be either still be living here or somewhere else.
