Over the Top

I was awarded an "Over the Top" award last week from Colleen at and it has taken me a while to get around to responding. We are in the middle of a change of regime and this feels much more invasive for us and Frank. We are, however, doing as well as we can and hoping for better blood sugar results very soon. Single figures would be good and we are amazed at how insulin resistant he seems to have become. Ho hum ...

So here are my responses to the questions. I have to respond in one word answers only and then forward it to three other bloggers. However, I know so few bloggers that I will do two and then a friend by e.mail.

1. Where is your cell phone? Handbag
2. Your hair? Brown
3. Your mother? Lily
4. Your father? Alan
5. Your favourite food? apples
6. Your dream last night? gone
7. Your favourite drink? tea
8. Your dream/goal? Mummy
9. What room are you in? lounge
10. Your hobby? crafting

13. Where were you last night? home
14. Something you aren't? short
15. Muffins? yum!

32. Your best friend? Budd
33. One place that I go over and over? local farm shop
34. One person that e.mails me regularly? Fiona
35. Favourite place to eat? Home

I don't normally take part in lists that need passing on but this one felt important, coming as it did from Colleen whom I count among my new Internet support group!
So, my three victims of Over the Top-ism are:
Kaija, my beautiful Goddaughter, who has just begun a blog of her own . Kaija, I know you are off school sick tomorrow so this will give you something to do! Get well soon.
Budd, my best friend, husband and love of my life, You just won't be able to resist it!
Severine, friend and all round beautiful person. It will help you practise your English!

No photo today but I am taking Frank and Sev to Mersea tomorrow for a picnic in the van and a run around on the beach. Let's hope for balmy January weather!

  1. Thanks Jules! Those were fun to read and it's nice to know a little more about you.
    Hope Frank's numbers improve soon. I know it has to be frustrating.
