Random thoughts from a random mind

I don't suffer from randomness… I, obviously, quite enjoy it!!

I can’t believe this…I have been nominated again…


Oh My Goodness Me!

I don’t think my heart can take all of this… I am utterly speechless…Take a look above and you will see why…

I have only one thing to say to…


I will accept the award of … (dum! dum! dum! building tension)          

The Very Inspiring Award… (Dum! Dum! Dum! Roll on the Drums)  from… 


I feel truly honoured to be nominated in this way. I have never felt so grateful and appreciative in all my blogging days. (Well it’s not that many but you know what I mean)

Everyone should pop around to  http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/ to read this amazing blog. 

 Ol’ Leaky eyes is back…(that’s what I call myself because I always cry, can’t stop)

Right, let’s get back to the Award procedure…What do I have to do? Oh Yes…

 The rules:

1]  Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog–

Have I done that yet?   Oh yes…Thank you to http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/ 

2]  List seven random things about yourself–

1)  OK. This is hard. I think my real eyelashes are on upside down.

2)  I know that David Essex‘s Birthday is 23rd July…don’t know why…just do

3)  I love sheep (I know you know that already but this is hard)

4)  I have broken both my wrists (Different times)

5)  I used to participate in athletics for my school (Quite proud of that)

6)  I can’t ride a bike. (Never owned one)

7)  My lucky number is seven just like http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/ 

I hope I managed to be random enough.

3]  Now I have to nominate fifteen other blogs– (This will be so difficult as I’ve nominated lots already so I may have to duplicate some)

I hope you don’t mind     http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/  but I will nominate 5 this time.

  1. I will nominate http://fortyteencandles.wordpress.com/ Not because you nominated me but because your blog has inspired me.
  2. http://dailyhodgepodge.wordpress.com/
  3. http://dottyheadbanger.wordpress.com/
  4. My son’s blog…http://carlparmenter.wordpress.com/
  5. http://pamboyd.wordpress.com

Now all that remains for me to do is go to all the blogs mentioned above and to leave comment linking them back to my blog.

The last thing on my list now is for me to find a suitable place to put my amazing award and open a bottle of wine and celebrate…



So, what do I have to do to become freshly pressed? Hey?

I must admit, whilst looking through all the blogs that I follow, I can see why they would be chosen. Their natural way with words and pictures is phenomenal. I always look forward to checking out the new Freshly Pressed posts when I log onto WordPress.com . I can only admire the bloggers for reaching the dizzy heights in the blogging world.

What I need is some darned, sound advice. I know when I push that ‘publish’ button that my efforts are far from good enough. I would just love to know what it is that I need to do to get better at writing. I’m being serious.

Sometimes I write something, press the Publish button and then sit there and think, ‘what a load of cr*p, Christine.’

Does anyone else feel like that? (OK, I don’t mean the Christine bit. Unless you are called Christine, that is.)

Is it just me then?

Oh dear.

Here’s to being Freshly Pressed…
