The second, whilst talking about our wedding anniversary I mentioned that I did not think I had told my blogger buddies the story of how we got together. "Worry not," said HD, "I covered all that in my anniversary post 3 years ago" (How sweet that he was blogging about this and I didn't even know) and sent THIS LINK - an unbelievably romantic story (not), you have to click on the link for more of this:-
I was working as a trainee in Social Care, my first employment after leaving school and had been there about nine months when a new intake or trainees arrived. Being the resident big-mouth and possibly the most experienced student in the ways of meetings etc. I was by this time the elected trainees representative. Part of this role involved a talk to new trainees as part of their induction, to let them know of my role in representing them, their rights and responsibilities in the workplace etc.. I was rubbish and dying the death of the ill prepared speaker and decided to pick on someone in the audience, have a go at them and divert the audiences ire. She went home crying.
And finally, knowing how much I love my stories about bungling burglars, the link to an article all about a German bank which was 'blown up in a botched raid.'
Suspected robbers in Germany appear to have miscalculated the quantity of explosives needed to blow their way into a rural bank.
The building housing the bank in the northern village of Malliss was largely destroyed by an overnight explosion.
The bank's cash machine survived intact and the suspected thieves are not thought to have made away with any money, Germany's Welt Online reported.

WAIT, WAIT - I'm not finished yet.
I'd like to thank Misha over at My Love Affair With Books for tagging me but as I've only just recently been 'IT' I won't be posting again about the contents of my handbag etc. AND whilst talking of Misha, is anyone out there interested in helping out with her blog? Misha writes:
"With huge amount of college work and upcoming exams, I have realized I cannot manage this blog by myself. I have slowed down on my reviews too. I have realized I need 1-2 more reviewers to help me run "My Love Affair With Books." Apart from reviewing , I would want the selected people to help me with author interviews, contests and other blog related stuff.
Two things I want to make clear -
This is not paid
I won't be providing any books."
So, for anyone who is interested click HERE for further information.
