10 February 2008


So. Sarah tagged me with a meme that has seen me shut away in here for hours, perusing my archives. Having sooo much fun. I used to talk more and knit less on this blog, didn’t I?

Anyway, the rules:

Link to your five favourite posts from your blog.
Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love
Link 5 can be about anything you choose.

1. Family. How to choose just one post? There was the first birth story, in which I had to assume a porn name and dodge boot scooters in between contractions; that was fun. Also, I can’t forget the second child’s birth story. And here’s that innocent wee babe some time later. My, how the innocent have fallen. There was no third birth story on the blog, because third children are always forgotten and neglected, poor waifs. However it is his birthday in ten days, as he reminds me each morning, so perhaps I’ll finally write his birth story. It was a tad more dramatic than the others which is possibly why it’s still in my head, not en blogge.

2. Friends. My friend L. (I do have other friends, I’m merely trying to be brief after breaking the rules totally in #1).

3. Me. You could read my 100 things about me over there on my sidebar. There’s also this. For those of you who clicked on that link and are totally bemused, here’s the explanation of goodbye and gobblers.

4. Something I love.
Hmmm, I love falling asleep at going to the opera and getting drunk at hearing fine orchestras (and owning unusual dogs). I like words and cultural differences. I also quite like singing.

5. Anything I choose. Well, I can’t go past the penis post, now can I? (Bet you all clicked on that one).

Bonus post: remember last week when I posted the how to dye yarn info and said it was my very first tutorial?

I lied.

I’m supposed to tag five people but I’m reluctant as usual. If you want to do this meme, please be my guest.

What a LOVELY way to spend my Sunday morning; a cup of Lady Gray tea, a fire crackling in the grate and a nice juicy post!

Lots of inspiring linkypoos to click on here... I have so enjoyed it. And of course I clicked on the penis post, who wouldn't? Not sure that I can take up the challenge to do this meme though, haven't been blogging long enuf, and IMHO I'm sorta boring sometimes.

But I couldn't click on second child's birth story.... just got the "get lost it's not here" screen.

Jelly Wares said...

Wow... Great post!!! It was fantastic going back through your archives...

That is a fabulous post, thank you. I intend on sitting happily with a glass of red and reading it in complete detail.

Sooo interesting. Funny how you seem to live the life I assumed I would have when I was young. The wool, the colours and the candles. The bush. Funny how things pan out.

Very fun. I know it took a long time, but that was a treat! I liked your "threesome" thoughts. I agree.

Another reason not to drive a volvo!

Bec and Call said...

I might do this meme just to prove to Joke that my posts are (slightly) more frequent than quarterly...

Am quietly chuffed to see I'd read all but two of these links before. Lovely to visit around again, tho!

Molly said...

Sounds like fun. I think I'll make like Fifi, read through the whole thing in the company of a nice glass [or bottle] of wine!
Maybe you would like to do the challenge on my blog? Since you're delving through your archives and all......

Suse said...

Molly, I've already taken that challenge, and if you click on the link under question 3 (the one on the word 'this'), you will see it!

I liked yours.

Rae said...

Can't wait to read all the linkies, after my kids are in bed, or they'll tear each other limb from limb.

I think I'll do this meme, I've been wanting an excuse to rifle through my archives and pull some old stuff out. But, later. (Because of the tearing each other apart while I'm on the computer problem.)

This was a lovely thing to read through, being a later comer here.

Thea Proctor's Tea Party: my favourite painting in the Qld Art Gallery is Lambert's portrait of Thea - she's elegant and dark and mysterious and strong and always placed next to another Lambert portrait of a woman called Kitty, who looks much as you'd expect her to with that name. I've had a huge crush on Thea since my first sighting of the painting - she'd have been a female friend to see you through the hard times and the good.
