This is one of my favorite pictures of me. Having a snack out of the plant pot. MMM DIRT *lol*

I think this is why I want to move to a farm. When I was little I was around lots of farms. But after four years old it was life in towns and cities.


  1. Love this. Great pictures especially the one were you're eating dirt. Great to know these random things about you. My dream dog is a boston terrier they're too cute.

    Em x

  2. Nice one! Love these A-Z thingies.. very interesting!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY by the way! 30s are fun! The baby thing is a brilliant adventure.

    All my kids were attracted to the dirt in those pot plants - I no longer have indoor pots at ground level! Babies also seem to be attracted to pram wheels and shoes! Yummy!

  3. Such a cute little dirt-eating baby you were! (That came out sounding a bit like Yoda...)
    And look at your lovely mum, she doesn't look any different now compared with 1981, ask her what her secret is please!

  4. @Vintage Sweetheart Now Em... don't tell me you didn't eat dirt when you were little! *lol*

    @OP SHOP MAMA Well is seems kids are attracted to all the dirtiest things! *lol* I do not even want to imagine all the things on the bottom of my shoes. =p

    @pastcaring Yoda is my favorite!
    "Oh Lord will my Mom LOVE you!" *haha* Well I can tell you her secret (Facial excercises) She swears by them, and I make fun of her while watching her do them. (Of course I know I will probably end up doing them myself.)Whilst locked in the bathroom away from prying eyes.
    - Sunscreen everyday
    - She loves trying all kinds of facial moisturizers from the health food store.

  5. Oooo,I love this nosy stuff,and I love these wonderful pix!!! Especially the facefull of dirt!!hahahahaaa
    Hope the birthday went smoothly,my darling...I'm so terribly behind this week.....doesn't feel any different,does it?!

  6. Mum still looks great get her blogging!!I too want a farm sooooo bad or a few acres will do and its on my next to do list along with my holden FJ you saw on my post.

  7. Hi there - just found you via Desiree at Pull your Socks Up. *waves*. Guess this is a pretty good post to start on - I've just done it too. Love the dirt eating picture - my little boy was a vaseline fan instead - made for a revolting nappy!

  8. You little cutie! if you're not sporting a nose plaster you're eating dirt, never a dull moment with you, is there?
    Love these facts, your Mum is gorgeous. xxx

  9. @Helga! I still feel the same (Thank heavens)It was just the new number that was getting to me. *lol*

    @Nelly Mom barely uses the computer. She only goes on it every now and then to send a message to her Sisters or Brother or Mom. That's pretty much it. I don't even want to know how long it would take her to do a blog post. *lol*

    @Lakota Hello Lakota nice to meet you *waves back* I will have to wander over to your blog and check out your A-Z =)

    @Vix I am just a weird soul. But the world would not go round without a good mix of nuts! LOL
