Filed under: memes — by my3boysandi @ 7:14 am

Barbara tagged and awarded me. Thanks 🙂

1. The rules are posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was 27. I was living in Auckland with my daughter (then 5) and My Home schooler 2. I was involved in a playgroup there. I was in the midst of arguing with the doctor that something was wrong with my son. It took another year for him to send me to the hearing clinic where we advised to start speech therapy. I was a solo mum for the 2nd time after having left my 1st abusive relationship a year ago.

Five things on my to-do list today:

1. make breakfast its 7am here at the mo

2.  home schooling my home schooler Im so pleased to have my computer back it makes home schooling easier I have lesson plans on it

3.  do some blogging
4.  run the tea towels  though the drier its been raining here and we have run out of tea towels they were on the line when it rained

5. have another coffee to kick start my day

Snacks that I enjoy:

Chocolate chip cookies (especially the ones I had yesterday at playgroup one of the fathers had made them and they were YUMMMMY!!!)

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

1. Give portions to church and people I knew with various needs.
2. Pay off our debts.
3. Buy some home schooling resources that I want
4. Buy a house with 5 bedrooms

  9. Oh yeah… I think procrastinating is a universal (bad) trait. Hehe… Lots of folks say I read too much and blog non-stop to the point that it’d become bad. Hmm… I think they watch too much TV. How about that? Haha!
