Blog Award

Aww, have to say thank you to Karon (Twinkle Eyes) for giving me a blog award :) It's nice to know someone appreciates my waffling!!

Now i have to come up with 7 facts about myself which no one knows, mmmm that could be difficult, i need to have a reet good think about this one!! Might have to do them in stages as and when i think about them, if i want them to be of any interest! I then have to nominate 7 blogs i enjoy reading.
Fact 1 - I married my first love! We first met when i was 15, he was 17 with a girlfriend so i fancied him from afar!! We got together in 1997 and were together for 9 months, until i finished with him for being a bit of a - well a prick for want of a better word!! We got back together in 2002, just after I split with my ex and the father of my first two children. We got married in August 2007.
Fact 2 - both my husband and my ex are called Darren, which gets very confusing! They both have a brother called David, and their birthdays are only one day apart. Also after splitting up with me they both went on to have a relationship with someone called Rochelle (different people though - the same Rochelle would have just been way too weird!!)
Fact 3 - my stepmum is 4 years older than me! My dad met his wife while he and my mum were going through a divorce, he was 52 and she was 18. Everyone said it was doomed because of the age difference, but they are still married now at 70 and 35, and have 3 children aged 12, 10 and 8!!
Fact 4 - i have been a member of Weightwatchers now since 1998!! In my time i have lost several people, only to find them again, and more besides! The lowest weight i got to was in 2000, when i went from 17st 7lbs to 12 st 7lbs. I banged all that weight and more back on over the course of the next 8 years or so. I keep loosing weight only to end up pregnant and then gain it all back! Probably why i was so determined this time round not to gain and to stick with it. I have never felt as motivated as i do now!
Fact 5 - I was told i would never be able to conceive naturally!!!!!!!!!! Ha ha ha, that doc was having a laugh! When he actually told me this I was already pregnant with my daughter. With my 2nd we started trying on valentines day - Elliot was born 9 months later on 14th November. I got pregnant in July 2003 without trying, but unfortunately miscarried in August 03. by Christmas 03 i was pregnant again with Jake. Then in February 09 had a little accident which resulted in Kieron!! So i think the doc got it a bit wrong, which i am very glad about and feel blessed to have four healthy children!
Fact 6 - my first job was at Burger King. Not an amazing fact i know - but im struggling now! I started work for my current employer in July 1995 and have its been "happily ever after" ever since! (honest!)
Fact 7 - I dont have a good history with pets! I had a pet hamster which drowned in the bath, and pet rabbit which got attacked by a fox and died, several goldfish, all by the name of Freddie!, who lasted anywhere between an hour and 3 weeks. I also once looked after the class guinea pig during the Easter holidays, when i was in infant school, and had to very sadly take the empty cage back to school when it died of pneumonia! My daughter has carried on this bad run of luck and her 2 pet goldfish didnt last very long! Bobby 1 died after 2 days, Bobby 2 after 2 weeks! (but she did pour an entire tub of glitter in his tank to make it pretty!)
So i managed 7 facts, now i'll have a think about who to pass the award on to and update later.

  1. Hi
    You really made me smile! Especially about the pets (although I know its not funny really lol)
    I have a bit of a similar thing going on as my husband and my previous partner have the same surname (not related) and my Nan also had the same surname!(not related to either!)
    Congratulations on the award.
