123 and tagged

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Day 15

Another holiday for the kids today, hubby was great and got up with them and let me sleep in!! Took the boys to see the new Simpsons movie this afternoon, got the thumbs up from them all, except Josh said it didnt go for long enough lol.
got the sewwing machine out today to hem up a pair of shorts, so while it was out I made one of those bag thingys to hold plastic bags for my friend Lynnie and then sewwed on a layout.

This layout..its for the August 123 challenge. Use green fabric, stitching and something 12 months old. The green is obvious lol I machine stitched around the edge of the CS and around the cream fabrci and handstitched along the green fabric. The bling, which came from an old necklace is around 3 years old.

I've been tagged...
Thanks Maggie

1-Post these rules.
2-Each person tagged must post 8 random (... hopefully interesting) facts about themselves.
3-Taggees should write a blogpost of these facts.
4- At the end of the post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named and released back into the wild.
5-Go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they're tagged*.

so here goes....

1. I am terrified of mice and rats. Absolutely can not stand them. My MIL once chased me around the front lawn of her place with a dead one lol.

2. I am a prolific list maker, I have them everywhere, my scrap room, the kitchen, lounge, bedroom, in my handbag. If it needs to be done it will be n a list somewhere.

3. I hate to be late for anything. I will leave early just to make sure I get there on time. Like Friday night we were at football half an hour too early, just so that I wouldnt be late lol.

4. I bite my finger nails. I always have and just cant seem to stop myself from doing it. I even tried to cut and file them, which worked for awhile then i went back to the biting.

5. I remember postcodes from all over Australia. Ever since I worked in a mailroom, if ive seen the postcode I remember it.

6. Everyone thinks I have blue eyes, and if you look at me you would to. But I dont, I have hazel eyes, I wear tinted contact lenses!

7. I was in girl guides and boy scouts. Went from a brownie right through the ranks to Rangers, and also joined Rovers when I was 18.

8. I have huge feet, a size 10 it is so hard to get 'nice' shoes to fit.

Now because im lazy and blogger is being so slow, im going to be slack and not tag anyone, just tag everyone who reads this and wants to have a go :)
