Ellas winter meme although it actually summer here. LOL!

Ella's winter meme in  our summer down under. Love doing these memes.

1.You have to leave your house because of a disaster.All the people and pets you love are safe. If you could carry out just one thing what would it be?

                                                                         family tree



  Although I've come to realise possessions are not important anymore, as long as my loved ones are safe.  I do have a box with all my family history research I've done since I was about 10 years old.  So guess I'd take that.



 2. Tell us about a book or series of books that you loved as a child.

Enid Blyton The far away tree and The wishing chair





 




3.Name one item of clothing you love your spouse to wear.

A suit and tie.





 4. Name a lullaby your mum or dad sung to you that you sang to your children.

My dad made a lullaby up which he sang to me and obviously my older siblings.  Can't remember it now though.




5. Tell us about the fanciest restaurant you have eaten in.
 
We don't usually go to fancy restaurants.  There was one where they placed the serviettes on our knee, which made Bear uncomfortable.

 

6.Tell us about any phobias you have. What else are you scared of?
 
SNAKES are my worst phobia.  I fainted once when I saw one. (What a wimp)
Heights, although think I'm improving with this one.
Escalators as my mum fell down one when I was a little girl.
 
 



7.Is there something old from a family member you treasure.
 
I have a lot of treasures from family members.  As I'm the family historian everything is given to me. One of the best is a letter written by my great great grandfather to his daughter in law, my great grandmother.  Also my grandfathers war medals.
 

 

8.If there is reading material in your bathroom, what magazines or books could be found there?

Definitely no reading material in our bathroom.  EEEWWWW think of the germs!

9.Tell us about your dearest childhood friend.
 
I'm still in touch with heaps of my childhood friends via face book.  I was a tomboy so there were two boys I hung around with and we did everything together.  One of them asked me to marry him when we were about 6 y.o., then when he started high school he got picked on so dumped me.  I was devastated. We still secretly kept in touch but if any of his friends were around we had to pretend we didn't like each other.  Then we drifted apart when we were about 16.
 


10.Is there a household task that belongs to your husband?
 
Well Bear would do everything for me if I allowed him to.  Whilst I'm mobile I like to do most household chores though except ....IRONING.  When my children were in secondary school their ironed clothes lived on the floor and so did Bears.  So one day I went on strike and have never ironed since.  Also I  never fill the car with fuel as it gives me asthma.  (Good excuse)
 
 

 1.Have you ever smoked pot? How old were you when you the first time? Do you still enjoy?
 
 
No way jose.  I would have been too scared to smoke anything and the smell of cigarettes gives me asthma anyway.
 


12.If it is cold what do you wear in bed?
 
Our winters aren't very cold, so the only thing I wear to bed is Bear wrapped around me.






13. How old were you when you lost your virginity? Share any story you fell comfortable with.
 
I waited for Mr Right to come along, so was 22 after we became engaged.  Bear had a little hatchback so we did it in that, which was  awkward, we managed some how though.  This is not ours but similar.
 
 

 

14.Think of something you did as a kid which you were glad your parents never found out about. If you were a perfect child you can say "perfect" but the rest of us will hate you for it.
 
I wasn't perfect but as with the smoking I was too scared to do things.  Not only were my mum and dad strict but I had 4 older siblings who treated me like they were my parents. Unfortunately one sister still does. GRRR!  A friend asked me to wag school with her one day and I was too scared to do that.  See I was a wimp.
 

 
15. Boob question!
Think Goldilocks and the three  Bears.
Do you think your boobs are
a. too big
b. too small
c.just right
d.all of the above is not a valid answer.

I think mine are too big but Bear thinks they're perfect.

 


Great meme Ella, thank you so much.

  1. Glad you did this 'summer' meme. I was scared to get in too much trouble too, but I've finally gotten over that and I no longer mind a bit. I waited for Mr. Right too, but by then 24, I decided I deserved a nice bed for the first time!

    1. PK, I enjoy getting into trouble now with Bear and sometimes tell him I've been naughty just to get spanked.
      wish we had waited for a bed bit hard when we both lived with our parents though.
      Have a good weekend and stay warm.

  2. Hi Lindy! Thanks for doing my meme, and you did a smash up job of it, too. I loved that you told us about your grandfather's war medals. And the boob picture was so funny.

    My favorite answer, though, was what you wear to bed. Awww, that was the sweetest.

    Sending Hugs Downunder,
    Ella

    1. Hi Jan we are so similar. I'm still a huge wimp. Take a bit to persuade me to go out of my comfort zone. We would have been great friends as children.
      Have a good weekend. Hope you are staying warm in England.

  7. Enjoyed reading your answers Lindy. I hate ironing, I always leave it till Harry has no shirts left, then I have to have a Marathon session. Enid Blyton was my favourite too.

    1. Thanks Rosie. Maybe you should encourage Harry to iron his shirts too.

  8. Great answers and nice piccies to go with them Lindy.
    I love a suit and tie too and I just don't iron either. My family seem to forget they have drawers and wardrobes in which to store their clothes too. But even worse than that is when they are asked to tidy up, grab everything including all the clean clothes and chuck it all in the laundry basket. I have been known to swear at these times!
