Techno phobe

So i have just joined twitter - woop woop! I know it's about time and I'm way behind this whole technology thing but i haven't got a clue and i still don't understand it, but thanks to yummy mammy who is now my first official follower, yeah me. I have yet to post an update as like i say i haven't a clue how it works but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon. I also took a tip from susanna over at British mummy bloggers, she advised everyone to add a RSS feed thingy mybob, so i have tried and i think I've done it! It's exhausting keeping up with all these strange new ways to communicate.

Anyway as my minute brain cannot compute anything too trying this afternoon i have decided to complete the tag of "8" s given to me by the lovely Brits in Bosnia.

1) Mention the person who tagged you (done)
2) Complete the list of 8's
3) Tag 8 others and let them know

So here goes.....

8 Things I'm looking forward to

1. Spending the summer in France
2. My friends wedding next week
3. Having a spray tan for said friends wedding - as I'm WAY too pasty
4. Having all four kids in full time education - only 3 and half more years to go.
5. Watching Mimi and Fi in their first ever dancing recital
6. Devouring the king prawn Cantonese i will be ordering from the take away tonight
7. Finally getting all my brood out of nappies - 2 down(almost), 2 to go
8. Sleep - tonight

8 Things I did yesterday
1. Fished out a huge baby turd from the bath
2. picked up 200 soggy weeto's Bella had thrown over the kitchen floor
3. took the kids to the park
4. went to Ikea to invest in a non mouldy plastic table for the kids(the 4th wooden one from there has weetabix ingrained into it)
5. Washed my hair
6. Cooked spaghetti bolognase - which no one ate?
7. ate a whole packet of custard creams - i didn't even feel guilty
8. Spent a whole hour trying and failing to comment on the brilliant metropolitan mum's blog post about her losing 2lbs this week - well done. I'm sorry but your blog won't let me comment?

8 Things I wish I could do
1. Lose weight - i have no willpower
2. enjoy exercise - i hate it

  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of Twitter. I've followed you and I'm looking forward to your tweets.
    I haven't got round to sorting out my RSS stuff yet!
    Loved reading your meme x

  2. Hello! Many thanks for your tag - I'll do it later in the week after my exam.

    Love the 8 favourite fruits bit - made me laugh! Dont think I could even name 8!

    Thanks again RMxxx

  3. Thanks for the tag. Love your answers - fishing a turd out of the bath...hee hee..been there oh so recently!! x

  4. Thanks for taking on the tag! Love your answers. And I've been there with Met Mums' blog too - I can't work out her thingy that you have to click that allows you to comment. I'm very technical as you can see. So far from being able to do twitter....

  5. Hiya Cheers will do it tomorrow. Guess what? I went to Preston Univ too!! About 16ish years ago (can't remember the exact time period - I never keep track of these things) I did English Lit in the daytime and frequented Tokyo Joes at night time (well on a Tuesday anyway - can't remember why we went on Tuesdays, must have been some "night" themed thing!) Thus, only having lived in Preston and Manchester I better make that bit up!

  6. RM - Good luck with the exam and i can't wait to read your list of 8's x x

    Emily - "poo related karma" - it's every frickin day :) x x

    All grown up - It's a small world isn't it! I went from 2001 - but i never finished my degree i took a gap year and never managed to return :( x x

    Katherine - OMG! I did english and american lit and was also a regular at Tokyo Joes on a tuesday - it was student night x x

    Fraught mummy - Thanks for the tag and i'm glad i'm not the only one who's having trouble with all this technology x x

    Sandy - I've followed you too but i'm still not sure what i'm supposed to be doing. Thanks soo much for the mention and tag on your blog x x

  7. Thanks for the tag! I will get round to doin it soon i promise! It took me a while to get used to twitter too, oh and fishing a baby turd out of the bath! too funny lol! x

  8. Oh yes TJ's student night...God I've fallen down/ walked into the mirrors in that place more than I would like to remember! I don't suppose you had any lectures by John Joughin? (he's the only name I can remember at present) We also had this really young gothy type not much older than most of the younger student, I think he did a course in the gothic novel (surprise, surprise). I think I was there in's all a blur, I never remember dates but I reckon I was about 21 so it adds up.

  9. OMG!!! Yes Richard the goth..he was my fave lecturer, he even rang me when i left an exam early cos i hadn't revised. He wore skinny drainpipes, loads of silver skull rings, ears pierced and brooding looking, quite small. I don't remember the other fella's a small world :) x


I love comments!
