Tagged by Suburbia! We're On Holiday!


Harry and I are having a holiday on the north east coast and will be back at the weekend ( 31st May.) I will leave you with some things to do while I'm gone!


As I don't run very fast, I have been tagged by Suburbia.
She asks me to write six things about myself that you mightn't know. This might be difficult as I've done this kind of thing before.
Then you must tag six other people & let them know you have tagged them. Let me know when you've done the tag so that I can see your answers.

ONE.      I won a beauty competition when I was a baby. My mother was on holiday and entered me in a small village fair. I won first prize and the local Mum's were miffed!

TWO.     My mother was the youngest of TEN living children!

THREE. My father was an only child as his mother had had six miscarriages and still births before he was born.

FOUR.    I used to do a lot of embroidery before my eye sight got too bad.

FIVE,      Before I started blogging I used to read 2 novels a week. Now I am lucky to read one per fortnight!  

SIX.       I collect Russian Babushka dolls and Japanese Kokeshi dolls. Both types are made out of wood! 



Well!!!!!!!! I'm sure you found that riveting!  It is hard to write things about yourself unless you are being asked specific questions.

I have to tag six people that haven't been tagged. MMMHHH! Some of you don't like tags or memes...... which are they, I wonder?
Let's go for it!   







Ok you lot get to it and think of six things I don't know about you.



The Lehners In France have asked me to link MOB and Aims as they are both up for awards. I have pleasure in doing that as they are great blogs, both of them!
MOB (Menopausal Old Bag) is up for The Funniest Blog Category and she is currently in third place.
Aims is up for The Most Inspirational Blog and although she is leading, the gap is growing smaller.
Please take a minute out of each day to pay a visit and to leave your vote.

More insights!

Have a great holiday - we had a wonderful time in Northumberland two years ago, but we don't tell people - Northumberland is a beautiful secret and if more people knew, it wouldn't be the same.

Suburbia said...

Very interesting. I like 1! And 5 sounds familiar, I haven't read a good book for ages, thanks to blogging!

Hope you're having a good holiday, lots of time to read unless you've found an internet cafe!!

Jules said...

Happy Holiday Maggie. Enjoy it and I hope the weather is wonderful for you.

Retiredandcrazy said...

Thanks for the tag. Mission complete. One other thing that most people are not aware of is that I am two years older than you,

aims said...

Maggie - just popped in as I knew you were holidaying - but wanted to say thank you for your kind words over on Best of Blogs - and find more kind words right here.

Thank you!

Now have a great and relaxing holiday!

I bet you'd still win a beauty competition Maggie! Have a great holiday.

CrazyCath said...

Great facts about you! I just KNEW you would get first prize in a beauty contest! Enjoy your break.

Expatmum said...

Sounds like you're in my neck of the woods (or at leasy my ex-neck of the woods). Have a great time.

Bina said...

Holy Crap! Your mother is from a family of 10 kids, and your dad was an only child? How in the heck did they make THAT work??? And your poor dad's parents. How very sad that must have been for them!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Mima said...

I hope that you have a wonderful holiday, a break really does wonders for the soul. I am sorry but I am going to duck the tag, I am so far behind with everything thanks to the weekends away and a bad patch, and my next focus is on catch up!

Casdok said...

Hope you had a wonderful trip!

Milla said...

This was a fun meme. Retired and Crazy tagged me, so I did it if you want to check it out...

#5 is especially funny. I used to read a lot too. Now I hardly do. I guess I've switched from fiction (books) to non-fiction (blogs). It's still reading isn't it?
