Agghhhh new blogger problem – I don’t know that many bloggers, I’ll have to fail on this part and go for a blogger's half dozen. Sorry


  1. Feel your pain on the shoe size front. I'm (just, fnar) a 7 now, but I was practically that size by the time I finished primary school, it wasn't fun.

    Oh and you're famous - I love Noddy!!!

    Thanks for ploughing through this meme, your post was a lovely read - and great questions!!

  2. I really hate shoe shopping (but love shoes) if I find any that fit I just buy them regardless of whether I need them - I can't risk trying to find them again later. Thanks so much for tagging me in this meme
