Year Book Yourself

Filed under: Home and Family,meme,My Thoughts — by my3boysandi @ 4:14 pm

I found this neat website first on facebook and then on Amys blog

I think this is one of the better websites at doing this.  It lines up the faces real well.


the 2nd one reminds me of my sister, who was a hairdresser before she became a mother.  She looked quite like this.  Ive had a bob before, people use to say it used to suit me, I guess bobs do suit me.  The last funny makes me like a school teacher LOL

Mr Wonderful – Ive always thought he was good looking in his own way – I especially like the first two photos

My Home Schooler

In the 3rd photo he reminds me of a guy I use to work with in my first full time job.  I had a crush on him.  The last one might have looked like his father who apparently at one stage had an afro

If you came to my house…

Filed under: meme — by my3boysandi @ 9:50 am

I got this one from

You would see:

a ramp leading up to our front door (I think someone in a wheelchair use to live here), a few toys on the lounge floor, books on the wall unit and my nice wallpaper

We’d probably feed you:

deviled sausages and veges and my home schooler might make a fruit salad

And offer you this to drink:

coffee, tea or wine or beer if you were coming for dinner

We’d undoubtedly ask if you’d read:

Any of Danielle Steele books or anything else I was reading at the mo

We’d want to play this music for you:

Its possible that Mr Wonderful would want to show you his keyboard and ask if you play then show you garage band on his mac

We’d want to tell you the latest about:

our home schooling

We’d probably suggest a game of:

Honestly, we’re not big game people. Is it okay if we just talk and hang out?

We might show off:

after viewing Mr Wonderfuls toys (his computers and keyboard) I might show you around our house. I still love it

We might get on the computer and show you:

all the things Mr Wonderful loves about his mac – dont get him started you might be here for ever

If it was a long enough visit, we might watch:

one of our dvds or we could go and rent one

What would a visit to your house be like?

enjoyable and homely I hope

Want to play along? Let me know if you do this – I’d love to come read it!

book meme

Filed under: meme — by my3boysandi @ 2:06 pm

Amy tagged me

Here’s what you do:

Take a book that you are reading and go to page 123. Then you grab the 5th sentence on the page as well as the next three, and post them. So here’s mine:

A sick or feeble man might lie on his bed or sit in the sun while the work of wool and bread and beer progressed about him, but such a man knew enough to be embarrassed and kept to himself.

We had a whole crowd of healthy men with little to do. “What a nuisance,” said my mother, of the relentless presence of her sons.

“They’re always hungry,” grumbled Bilhah, who never grumbled, after sending Reuben away for the second time that morning with a bowl of lentils and onions. Every few minutes, Bilhah or Leah had to stop what they were doing to heat the stones.
