Anyway, to answer Jenner's four questions.
What would you do on a perfect day? (No monetary restrictions … just imagine away).
Have you ever stayed up for 24+ straight hours? Why?
Have you ever laughed so hard your stomach muscles and face hurt? What made you laugh that hard?
Several times. I know I perhaps shouldn't of found this funny but I did ... and, I confess, still do.
My sister and I were shopping for an outfit for a wedding she had been invited to. Watching her try on shoes, whilst I looked after her daughter (Niece #1, now 21), I took my eyes off the buggy for a few seconds to comment on said shoes only to discover that my niece had reached over and grabbed hold of a VERY expensive hat, plucking it of the feathers that adorned it. Never have we vacated a shop so quickly.
What is the earliest time in your life you can remember?
Ooh that's a hard one.
What fun. And so onto my four questions:-
- You are going to a fancy dress party - what is your costume of choice and why?
- What is the oddest gift you have ever received/given?
- Every Christmas morning we would eat tinned hotdogs for breakfast. A family we know ate a box of malteser chocolates in bed to celebrate a birthday. Do you have any holiday traditions? If not, what tradition would you like to start?
- You find a time machine to which time in history would you travel and why?

I have been eating toast in bed ever since
Which got me thinking of the childhood 'rules' that I came to rebel against as an adult.
Toilet Paper - As a child my father had this massive thing about the number of sheets we used. Honestly I think if he could have getting away with it he would have stood at the toilet door, handing out single sheets of loo roll as we went in. I rebelled and now take delight in using an abundance of the stuff.
Likewise - the washing of hair and time spent doing so. As a teenager I had greasy hair and when I say greasy I mean of oil-slick proportions, yet I was only allowed to wash my hair twice a week, Wednesday and Sunday, UNLESS there was a special occasion (Christmas Eve for example) AND whats more I only had a certain length of time in which to do it before my father would bang on the door creating such a fuss. I rebelled and now if I want to spend half-an-hour, an hour even, in the shower I will do.
Molly I salute you for eating that toast in bed - the more crumbs you make the better.
So what made rebels of you?
Not too well at the moment, another nasty chest infection, I plan to schedule some posts to appear over the next few days so apologies if I do not get around to visiting you as I normally would, I wouldn't want to be spreading any germs amongst you. (What do you mean it doesn't work like that?) Oh and just in case I don't get to see you, may I wish all my blogger buddies across the pond a very happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow. PW
