Thanks to You

First of all I want to say  thankyou  SO much to Sylvia from Baxter’s Mom Blog. She gave me a blog award.. So sweet thank you Sylvia. It was a week or so ago and I have not been to blog world for a while. Sorry.  Sylvia has a wonderful blog herself which I follow, through google reader.  She also has a new puppy. AW. So cute, check it out She is also a  great artist. I love her mixed media hearts.

I have to say a few things about myself that you may not know. Hmmm…

I’m from England,and have been here in New York for quite a while. Everyone thought I was my daughter’s Nanny when she was little.

I still have problems when I ask for a glass of water in restaraunts.(Glarse of Wahtur) my kids usually have to say it for me in the end.

I do not love listening to jokes. I never laugh appropriately at the punch line. It’s embarrassing. I do however love  funny true stories that people tell, embellishments and all.

I unfortunately laugh if I see people fall over, slip etc. My kids think I’m a terrible mum when I laugh at them. I truly can’t help it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. It truly is awful.

I once revived a fly that was drowning in the swimming pool. Not mouth to mouth but there was gentle blowing involved.

I can’t play trivial pursuit. I know the answer when it’s someone else’s turn, but freeze like a deer in headlights when I’m asked the question. Something to do with all the attention I’m sure.

I once saved a baby mole in the driveway and it bit me.

When my daughter was 3 we caught newts from a lake in upstate New York. We took them home, much to my brothers annoyance. they proceeded to live for 16 years.  Pah I say to my brother.

Anyway, Thanks to Sylvia, again I’ve decided to go forward and force myself to work on my Etsy Shop. It’s there, but it has just one print in it. I’m so lame. It’s so nerve-racking to put myself out there. I should be brave. I know. Take the plunge and all that. So Sylvia said some  lovely things about my  Flying Pig,”Fly Pig Fly” so I decided to jump in.
