No waaaaay!

Another award! I am a very lucky girl indeed and to be honest it's so nice getting them as I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself of late. But enough of that.

Thanks today are due to the lovely Pea Green Kitty at Memoirs of a Vintage Magpie
She is an awesome lady who is not only a Nurse, something I wanted to be when I grew up but then I knackered my back so that was the end of that, but not only is PGK a hardworking lady is a whizz at home and is currently painting up a storm in her garden. ;)

Right so I'm to tell you 7 things you don't know about me
1. I once played the Dame in our Young People's Drama group Pantomime. We were short of older boys and as one of the tallest girls and the owner of the daftest sense of humour I can't think why they picked me and I was only in my early teens at the time.
2. My 15 year old won't let me watch Hollyoaks cos she says it's SAD! LOL
3. I would love to do a course on Dry stone walling. I'm not even sure why but it's always fascinated me. I know I'm odd.
4. As well as being 6ft tall, wearing a size 9 shoe (just call me Yeti woman) I have a huge head. I love hats but going hat shopping is no fun when you put one on your head and it just sits there...on the top of your head...like you're a giant with an Elf's cap on.
5. I gave up Clarinet in school as I hated the way it made my teeth vibrate, I actually wanted to take Drum but there were never EVER any spaces.
6. I have no idea why people think Ricky Gervais is funny. He is soooooo not!
7. I made Goats Cheese Tart for tea last night, ok I struggling to find 7 interesting things to tell you.

Now I'm supposed to pass this on to 7 other bloggers. As I've already said I've been on the receiving end of quite a few awards lately to I'm awarding this one to you all, every one of you lovely human beans that takes time out of your day to come visit me here at Ratbagsville! :)

You are fab and deserve all your awards, well done. We have another two things in common. I think Ricky Gervais is erm not funny. Not only that but my darling husband says I look like an Easter Island statue as I have such a big head - harumph!! Big head, big brain, that's what I say. He, on the other hand is a pin head !!

I have to agree that Ricky Gervais is not all that funny. Although I loved him as David Brent. (Who wasn't funny, yet was funny because of that.)

Awwww! Kind words! Thanks hun.
Its nice to hear that there are other tall ladies out there. I'm not so tall as you at 5'9" but I tower above my friends....all but one that is, my mate Nicola is 6 foot aswell. I used to hate it but i have grown to love it, after all if I was a size 16 and 5'4" i'd look a whole lot rounder!

I am with you on Mr Gervais. Congrats on your award, your mantlepiece will be collapsing under the weight of them soon! ha! ha!

You're right. Ricky Gervais is NOT funny. Infact i really dislike that man and have to change the channel if he's on.

Oh, and congrats on the award. You go girl!

Hollyoaks is AWESOME!

Hope that you're ok and not feeling too down at the moment.

Hats never fit me either but I don't stress about it too much because I also happen to look like a complete moron in them as well.

Ricky Gervais makes me cringe so much I can't watch him!!!

I think the name Taz has some wierdness too it - my baby Taz has been over 6 foot since she was about 12 years old, she has topped off at 6'1" - and wears a size 9 shoe - she used to get called eifel taryn!

Hope the tart was good - sounds it!

I have several girl friends who are 6 footers! Whenever they come out with me I insist on flat shoes and that I have to find a step for me to stand on whilst we chat with our drinks! I am a midget!!! LOL
So unfair! xxx
