Funerals

Not a nice topic, I know.
We had a funeral at the pub yesterday. The family came the day before and put up loads and loads of pictures of their dad who had passed away.
Of course, I had a nosey at them.
This guy had been in the navy, met amazing people, been given awards, did great things for the scouts and was in the paper.
All I could think was ‘I hope I have this much to show for my life when I die’
Of course, he lived until he was quite old, so had a long time to achieve a lot of things.
But at the same time, we’re all only getting older- what do we have to show for our lives? I have a book and the charity day I organised.. But that’s it. For nearly 16 years.
I really want to do more, so the picture boards will be jam packed at my funeral.
Love from me x

‘Questions people will never ask you.’

I saw that a blog I follow (she’s called floodedroses, I Reccomend you having a look at her blog!) had done a post called 99 questions people will never ask you – probably because it will allow them to find out absolutely pointless information. I thought I’d give it a go anyway, seeing as i can’t sleep. You can learn some useless stuff about me too! It’s win- win you see;)

1: Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?

I take ‘closet’ means wardrobe? Well, they’re slide doors so I’m not fussed!

2: Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?

Everytime.

3: Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

Out mostly, but if its cold or I’m feeling sad I’ll tuck them in and cuddle my teddy. 🙂

4: Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

No. I’m pretty sure Harvey has though. Once he brought me a huge canvass sign thing advertising a local circus.

5: Do you like to use post-it notes?

No, they always fall off and they’re too small to write anything of significance on. They also get wasted by teachers.

6: Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?

Yes!

7: Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?

Neither to be very honest. Maybe me and the bear would have some heartwarming moment like on ‘how to train your dragon’ and we’ll become the first legalised bear-woman marriage.

8: Do you have freckles?

No. I really wish i did though!

9: Do you always smile for pictures?

I try to!

I hate it when people don’t cough and they obviously need to because their voice is all croaky.

..I’m pretty sure i have. If not I’ve peed in a big field… And Sarah’s back garden

13: What about pooped in the woods?
