Seven things about me !!

Ok , i have been asked to write seven thing about my self, considering i can talk to anyone and find talking to complete strangers a complete breeze , this is a strangley a diffficult one !!
    Umm let me think  , am i that interesting???  well here goes :
           Ok first and foremost , i have been married to my husband for over 20 years , and we have managed to produce five healthy , hopely happy children !  considering i was never interested in children before hand , i ended up with five !!  two are now in uni , one in the  middle of doing GcSe's , one in comprehensive  , and my last little one who is only still seven !!
     Me , i am an only child ,  but was always intereseted in family history from a very young child and i have pursed this and it is so fulfilling to find  your routes and i have found through the internet , a very close friend from America, who i knew nothing about before i started , but she  was  desperately looking for her family from Wales ,  and now we speak  almost everyday through the internet  and one day we are determined to save enough money and to meet each other. Please if you have time , just take a little del into your family tree , it is surprising what u will find and this is what you are made up of !!
        I went to an all girls school , which is very unusual i know but it still happens around this area < stayed on for two years then went to work in Barclays bank !! < until my children came along . Since having them , i have worked in schools , from dinner lady , to one to one for " special needs " children and then i went i got my NVq's in child care and  worked in a nursery , till earlier this year , until funding put an end to that job !!
                to be contd >>>>>>

A beautiful sunny day here in WALES!!

  Wow,  what a beautiful day today is ,so Spring like !
   Still crochering my lemon and pink blanket  and still no babies from Candy the Cat , i reckon it is next weekend , the due dates , as daddy turned up on valentines weekend ! and he did have  a good weekend , i guess!
 Any way , 23 years ago today i became a  Mrs !  So much has changed since that time . I am firstly living in a different house , which i thought i would  never do,secondly i have five children , which i most certainly did not think i would do and thirdly i am  much much bigger than 23 years ago !!
 I thought you were supposed to get better "off"" , after 23 years of marraige well finacially were are much worse off , as we were both working full time and only 4 mouths to feed , myself , hubby ,  a cat called joey and a dog called Nellie , they were part of the marriage deal !
  Now , we have  7 human mouths to feed and clothe , three cats and a dog , oh and more kittens due and i do not work !   would ?  i do it all again , i of course i would  ,but these  days they  do not get married they  just seem to set up home together and sort the  marriage thing out much later  .
 Oh well better get back to the crochering and house work , cleaning  , cooking , washing , ironing all the  normal things after 23 years !!   what is 23 years of marriage called ? any ideas ?  
  Take care everyone and enjoy the sunshine !!   Luv  Helen xxxx
