A little bit of fun for a Thursday

Ok, I found this in Donna's journal - thought I would have a go at it.


1. Each player answers questions about themselves.

2. At the end of the post the player then tags 5 people, and posts their names, goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know they've been tagged.


1. WHAT WHERE YOU DOING TEN YEARS AGO: Ten years ago, hmmmm - well I was 32. I had Sam and Joe. Sam four years old and Joe two. They were my world. My life was miserable apart from my kids - I hated my husband and felt trapped. I wanted to find a way out. I spent alot of time with my Mum and Dad to get away from him. I was hoping things would get better.

2. WHAT ARE 5 THINGS ON MY TO-DO  LIST TODAY1. Get dressed. 2. Go feed Sally's guinea pigs. 3. Prepare picnic. 4. Go and enjoy picnic and let kids have a riot in Sand dunes. 5. Come home and sleep (As I didnt sleep last night!).

3. SNACKS I ENJOY: Chocolate (Galaxy!). More chocolate and lots more chocolate! :0)

4. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE A BILLIONAIRE?  First I would run round the house screaming and not quite believing it. Then I would calm down and think what to do. I wouldnt want my life to change. I wouldnt want to leave my friends and change my children's lives. I would want to be able to make sure we had no money worries anymore though - that would be nice. It would also be nice to help out all of our five children but I wouldnt want them to think life was an easy ride - so that would be difficult. I would want to help people who needed help - like the homeless in this country and children in need. I would want to help the learning organisation I belong to because its a good cause and helps people get into education when they wouldnt have done. Anyway, could go on and on about that so Ill stop now.

  5. BAD HABITSLike Donna I wear my heart on my sleeve - dont know if that is a bad thing! Ermmmm hmmm Im bad at getting up in the mornings! Im bad at getting moody with John and assuming he is fed up with me or going off me - thats never true! Just a woman thing I think. Im bad at being too nice, if you know what I mean. Im bad at eating chocolate coz I eat lots of it.

6. 5 PLACES I HAVE LIVEDHmmm well Ive lived in a house, a tent, a caravan, a villa - is that what you mean? No oh right well Ive lived in Portslade, East Sussex, Shoreham, West Sussex and Hastings where I am now!

7. 5 JOBS I'VE HAD: My first job was a paper girl - delivering the Evening Argus! Then I worked in a hairdressers on Saturdays. Then I became a typist, secretary, p.a. Been an insurance clerk, a mid-day supervisor at a school, an individual needs assistant and a Teaching Assistant. Now Im a cleaner! Oh Ive been a student most of my life hee hee!! I know thats more than five - but who is checking!

Right Im not picking five people, like Donna I want to know about you all - only if you want to take part and if you read this entry! Then if you do leave your link in my comments and I'll come see what your answers are!

Love Lainey xxxx

Thanks for visiting again Elaine.  I enjoyed reading the answers you gave about yourself.    I need all my computer time to contact the people that visited me as I only seem to concentrate well in the morning the last several days.    I don't know that much about sciatica nerve pain.    In the U.S. there are now 'Pain Management Clinics' that use new technique's to eleviate pain and help people lead productive lives.   Study all you can about the condition.   Usually a doctor can only know so much from x-rays, etc.    My surgeon came to the realization that my condition had to be caused by having a spinal fracture which I did not know about before, at that level of my spine.   I am glad the pain does not bother you all the time.    mark

So I'm assuming that everything worked out in respects to your answer to #1?  I've met a bunch of people in a similar situation, and I know that it is a tough one to be in.
