Louise's Sunday Ramble

Well, I am finally at the last stage of the swap. Phew!

My final gift to make, I thought would take an hour or so to finish off...oh how wrong i was. It kinda fell apart and now me and dan are all fingers and thumbs putting it back together.
I wish i could show you the photo so you could see what i mean...but i can't!
So i am really hoping it will be okay to post out tomorrow eeek!

Whilst browsing through blogs I realised that I had been tagged by Mimi!
Mimi love paints the loveliest pictures and embroiders on to them. I have one of her postcards of cow which is great, go check her out!
So it was almost a month ago that I was tagged, so it seems i need to update you on 7 facts about myself. Here are the rules.
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write seven little known facts about yourself.
4. Tag seven people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

1. I am allergic to Lobster. No swollen faces or rashes...oh no, Lobster helps me make friends with the toilet and give it a hug. (U prob didn't want to know that)

2. I bite my nails. Don't think I will ever stop, i've tried everything.

3. I'm majorly scared of fireworks, much to everyones amusement. For two weeks either side of Nov 5th, i constantly have my fingers in my ears and hide myself away in the house.

4. I have 3 sisters (aged 15, 18 and 31) and i'm in the middle. Being a middle child is meant to make you more calm and less prone to arguments. It's kind of true.
I miss them loads as they live 3 hours away.

5. I have a scar on my left eyebrow. I was told recently that scars on eyebrows are really common so maybe i'm not that special. Mine was from playing hide and seek and running in to a toilet seat. ( I would like to point out that I was 4, and not 27!)

6. I am learning Chinese - Mandarin at work. Ni hao, ni hao ma? Wo bu shi hen hao. Wo yao qiao ke li* That's as much as I can muster today.

Hello, how are you? I am not good. I need chocolate.

7. My dream is to have my own business, work at home, grow veg, have babies, and bake cakes...oh and win the lottery. Until then 9-5 calls.
So now to tag some people back.
These are people that I check out nearly every day and enjoy so much. Some are old and some are newbies like me. Please go and check them out!

So that is my Sunday ramble.
Oh and just before i leave. Check out my friends little shop on Folksy.
She has made me couple of necklaces now and they are real little statement pieces.

I have this one...

This is what she makes on our weekly crafts nights, whilst I look at my fabric and wonder what to make...
ciao for now xx

Hi Louise!
My dream is exactly like yours! So far the only part that came true is the baking thing... And congratulation for your mandarin, I see you mastered the basic survival sentence! Let's hope that 2009 will make dreams reality and Mandarin tones easier to remember!
