Ten Things You Ought To Know About Me:

I love chocolate.

I hate escalators.

I can worry myself into a state of total immobility.

I swear a lot (no shit, Sherlock).

I was once told by someone that I was “frightened of my own potential” but was too scared to ask her what she meant by that.

I love, love, love clothes. And shoes. And having my hair done (I know that’s three things but they are all related). And another thing. I can be totally shallow. Yet somehow deep. Oh bollocks, who am I kidding?

I’m very observant and intuitive.

I really, really want to write magazine articles but no one will let me. I’d even stop swearing.

I have a very long fuse, but there’s a nuclear arsenal at the end of it.

I look a bit like Barbra Streisand, already.


Now, let’s talk about you shall we?

Stopping by from Wife In The North and having fun reading your archives. I'm big on swearing myself. Why use ten words when one well chosen curse word will do?

Well now SM, I've had a look at your list, and I'm with you on 1, 3, 4, 6, 7 & 9. I don't have a problem with escalators, my potential is, I think, a long way in the background, and I'd rather read magazine articles than write them. I'd rather read YOUR magazine articles. Don't give up SM, something will come of this.

Hi rotten correspondent, lovely to read you! Swearing is, indeed, a wonderful release and saves time in the long run!

Thanks for visiting.

Tina! Thanks for the encouragement, I really do appreciate it. Glad to know that apart from escalators and magazine articles, we are kindred spirits!

Can you sing like Barbra too?

Hey S/M. Don't get the women and chocolate thing, though I fight my offspring for sweeties.... Am definitely with you on the clothes/shoes/hair. Please keep writing - someone will spot your potential I am sure. You have the knack of observing everyday life in such a way that makes it so funny to read. Off now to try and get the brood ready to go out. Will be back soon xx

Hmm, you might know my husband, although he doesn't approach women who look like la Streisand so much since the court case...

Swearing Mother said...

Mopsa, unfortunately I can't sing like Barbra, and I don't have her lovely nails, or the gorgeous hair come to think of it. But apart from that we are identical!

MMOF: I have been known to lick chocolate off my children's faces, I like it so much. Poor kids, they used to lock themselves in the bathroom to eat a Yorkie.

Hey Rilly, so it was your husband was it? I really must stop singing "People Who Need People" everywhere I go, it's encouraging all sorts of strange goings on.

Ta everyone for visiting, lovely to read you.

You really really need to get that chocolate sauce from M&S. It goes with everything and may even persuade you onto escalaters. It's good to read we have so much in common. I even look like Barbara too - well apart from the face, hair, nails and body, if it weren't for that you'd swear we were twins. Definitely don't give up on this writing marlarky!

Swearing Mother said...

Belle that chocolate sauce sounds good, in a bad sort of way. What time does M and S Food shut, I wonder?

Thanks for visiting and the much needed encouragement.
