Growing Up and stuff

Hi everyone :-) 

Thanks for all your well wishes to the last entry ~ unfortunately my throat is still playing me up :(  It doesn't like orange juice, tomato ketchup, grapes or chocolate.  Sometimes eating in general :(  I know I should make an appointment with the doctor but I'm nervous about it to be honest I havne't been to see them in ages!!  It feels alright for a while and then I have something to eat or whatever and it hates me again :(  It seems to be only one side too which is odd..................wish I had some medical knowledge then I wouldn't worry LOL........

Anyway enough of that...........I have written notes about the convention and the first day is all written up.  I want a bit more written before I share it with you lot ;-)  Don't worry it is coming.

So tomorrow I am due to meet up with Greg and my father again.  This time Dad will bring his misses *rolls eyes*  I find it hard having to sit there and make polite conversation with him but to bring her too.............he did ask us if it was ok last time and I should've said no but what kind of a person would that make me!!  Honest probably LOL  I've not heard how I'm getting there, just had a text from Greg last Tuesday to ask if I was still ok for it!!  Well if I don't hear anything I shan't bother turning up.  What do they expect me to do walk there??

Well I'm definitely going to see mum on Saturday so that should be fun.  Possibly meeting up with Trina on Sunday and Sheila :-)  Sheila's one of our Queenie friends whose parents live down this way.  She's coming down for Easter she told me last night.  Whatever happens it should be good.

Well I wanna post this questionnaire thingy I snagged from Lyn - Enjoy xx

The Childhood Meme

1. Are you a child of the 70s, 80s, or 90s?

I was born in 77 so it's the 80's I remember most :-)

2. Where were you born?

In a hospital, but very nearly the car apparently

3. What kind of home did you grow up in?

A semi-detached council house in a lovely village in Devon up until I was about 14/15. A rather big house with two large sized bedrooms and a smaller one. The next house was smaller and in a town in Devon, closer to school and mum's work. Nice house, my brother lives there now.

4. Did you enjoy your childhood?

Yes, I look back on it fondly. As we lived in a village everyone knew each other and so in the summer all the kids would play football and stuff up at the park. We would go exploring and make camps and generally do things we probably shouldn't have done lol..................... It was a good carefree time.

5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Don't laugh but I wanted to be a postwoman!! (use the correct term there ;-)

6. What do you want to be now?

Anything but what I'm doing now ~ I'd like to be a writer but I'm beginning to think that is a pipe dream as is everything else I think about.

7. What was your first best friend's name?

Phillippa Noon

8. Is she still your friend?

No ~ she moved away and we lost touch

9. Can you name all the schools you ever attended?

Axmouth Nursery, Musbury Primary School and The Axe Valley Secondary School
10. Were you closer to your mom or dad as a kid?

Definitely mum ~ until I was a teenager and then we fought like..................well like mother and daugther I suppose lol

11. What was the first record, tape or CD you remember buying?

I got The Muppets album at a carboot sale from my uncle the day Live Aid was on, so that was July 13th 1985 ~ that's precise for you huh? Apart from that the first album I remember owning properly would've been either Five Star or Kylie Minogue lol

12. How old is a good age to have kids?

I have no idea but i guess anywhere between 20's and 30's. But saying that my mum was past her 30's when she had Megan so who knows??!!

13. Are you scared of anything?

I fear the dark sometimes, spiders, being on my own............

14. What was your favourite class in elementary school?

At Primary school (as we call it in England) I have no idea but at Secondary school it was definitely History

15. Did you buy school lunch or bring your own?

Brought my own............well mum made it

16. Broken any bones or had any freaky accidents as a kid?

I did damage my elbow once from banging it on the back of a chair when I was tiny (I was told that, don't remember it at all!) I do remember coming off my bike and landing in a bunch of stinging nettles and another time trying to mount the piece of wood a neighbour had at the kerb to help him get his car into the drive. My bike didn't make it and I came off. Another time I was riding along with some friends and there was something in front of me, like a crisp packet or something, one of my friends wanted to drive over it before i did so they swerved in front of me and I didn't have time to react and came off my bike yet again!! I ended up having a bit of gravel in my knee, that was during the school holidays too...............

17. Were you a mean kid?

Possibly to Alex next door and Jason. Alex was a lot younger than me and was constantly calling to see if I would come out. When I was annoyed at him I would suggest playfighting. Naturally I would win coz he was younger than me but I wouldn't intentionally hurt him..........I ain't that mean!! Jason, well it wasn't just me, he was a wimp and it was funny. If we played games like hit and we were the person who was hit, we would make sure Jason was the next one coz he always used to throw a paddy about it. It was funny!!

18. Favourite board game of all time?

Don't think I have one, but i do remember playing Sorry that was a good game.

19. Did you play house or pretend to be a super hero?

House, I had a wendy house, not a proper one just like a painted sheet that got put over a frame that we got from the catalogue and used to have my paddling pool next to it in the summer. Those where the days lol

20. Seriously, are you still just a kid at heart?

I've never grown up to be honest!!

Well I better go ~ till next time peeps xx

Gotta ask hon if you ever had your tonsils out? Sounds like tonsillitus, if thats the case then your really should ring up the doctor. I had mine out when I was a kid.
Good luck meeting your Dads (What do you call her ?) wife. Loved your meme, gave us even more insight to your younger life. (Hugs) Indigo

You really should go see your Doctor if only to make sure it is a minor throat ailment ~ If you feel so strongly about meeting up with your Father and his 'Missus' I wouldn't go ~ Hope you have a nice visit with your Mum ~ Trina and Shelia ~ enjoyed reading your questionnaire some nice answers there ~ Ally

ukgal36 said...

I shoul;d get to the doctors with your throat before the surgeries close for Easter. I hope it clears up once and for all! Have a good time with your mum on Saturday. Good answers on the childhood thingy! I agree with the last commentor, the Axe Valley does sound scary! Lol! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

I hope everything went ok Jen.  Your fears are similar to mine.  Not keen on spiders unless they're at a safe distance.........preferably 6ft :)

Hope your throat gets better soon too. Rache
