Less than vital statistics

That Deanne at Quirky Boots has this list on her blog today, and in the interests of fun and constantly making everything all about me, I thought I'd take part.

The new look blog is going to take me some time to get used to - back to 2 columns...an attempt to make the posts look shorter. Fail!

I like the new look, been wanting to update mine for a while but just not had the time.

In reply to your question about Liam's camera, yes it was his present.

Its a mix between a point & shoot and a dslr. Has some manual bits but can't change lens. Promised him a camera of his own before the lens on dslr hits something hard and breaks, as he tends to whack it against door frames etc and it flies off!

Got a damn good bargain on this and sadly couldn't afford 2 this month as my daughter wants one for her Birthday and doubt they will have any left at payday :0(

Sarah said...

This is great stuff - enjoyed reading them all and then proceeded to interrogate myself...
Blog looks just great and a bit like those poor three gals at the Royal Wedding - if you've seen someone else wearing it you fancy a change pretty sharpish. At first I thought you'd legged it to Wordpress...Sharing height and 6am with you.
Have a good Tuesday...

Deanne said...

loving the new look blog :)
lol at mr dunnit heartstrings *giggles*

Sarn said...

Live the new look although I did wonder if I was at the right place first of all!

Great answers . . . some made me chuckle.

Have had a few weeks of no shows at WOYWW - aiming to rectify later tonight.

Hugs, Sandra

I like your revamped look, and I enoyed this post. Can I steal the questions?

Kyla said...

Like the new look-threw me at first! Okra, yuck...veggies should not be covered in phlegm like substance when you cook them...I agree!

Claire said...

Loving the new look Julia.
I need coffee & kind words in the morning too, I'm also 5ft3 & have underwear, we're quite similar really lol

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

oneoff said...

Well, I'm with you on A-E and even F would have to go down as a 50:50 with turquoise, so we were clearly separated at birth! Love the new sunny blog.


Neet said...

This new look threw me - I came on twice and clicked off. Not sure what I make of it - but then I am old and don't like change.

Mmm.... I love your answers - shall I try?

misteejay said...

I too thought I'd arrived at the wrong place...creature of habit me LOL.

Love your answers...the diamonds one reminded me of your 'large & shiny' gift **giggle**

Glad I am not the only person in the world who gets up at 6am, feels like it sometimes! We are nearly the same height and I hate cleaning toilets too! Is the worst chore ever!

The Crafty Elf said...

Anne said...

Thank you Julia --- so made me laugh

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Heather said...

Im going to have to steal the list for my blog - its such a fun list! I'm glad to hear you have underwear too :)

LuLu said...

Howdy Julia,
I really like the new blog look - very fresh!

Hope to play in WOYWW again soon - been busy with my joib search and making art!


voodoo vixen said...

Good Lord, we are twins parted at birth!! Same height, same wake up, I too have underwear and one child, same number of siblings just wrong sex... my Mum is Peggy not Penny oh and probably the biggest difference you are waaaay younger than me.... which kinda makes the twins bit slightly improbable
