Wow!! This is so addictive!!

I cant believe how addictive this blogging is.

I'm finding that I want to write posts everynight and have to resist the temptation not to bore you to tears with my pathetic ramblings!!

I had a tooth out during the week and boy has it felt strange! The dentist said that it was hanging on by a thread and once he'd numbed my jaw, it had almost 'popped' out on its own.

Apparently, because I have osteoporosis, it is not only contained in my hips and spine, it has also caused degeneration my my jaw bone! It hasnt stopped me talking drinking or eating, so no cause for immediate alarm then eh?? LOL

The dentist asked me if I wanted to keep my tooth and for one tiny moment, I paused to think of how I could use it in my crafting!! You'll be pleased to hear that I declined his offer.

I find myself, flicking my tongue in and out of the gap where once my wobbly molar once lived.

It had become progressivley wobbly over the recent months and now, it was gone.

I can only hope that because this tooth has escaped, that the others dont decide to follow suit!!

I've been tagged!! I hope I'm doing this right??

1. If a movie was being made of your life who would you like to be cast to play yourself? and why? I'd choose Kathy Burke because she's as mad as I am!
2. You are spending a whole month on a desert island for charity and you have to choose your favourite celebrity to spend the first two weeks with & your least favourite celebrity to spend the second two weeks with, who would they be & why? First two weeks, I'd spend with Michael Bolton (obviously!!) last two weeks with Graham Norton.

Friend of Damon Hill, Also met, Michael Bolton, George Michael, David & Victoria Beckham, Ray Winstone, Michael Barrymore, Clif Richard, David Jason, Gareth Gates and loads of other people too numerous to mention.

Now, I believe I have to pass this onto to five other blogs but, I'm not really sure how to do this. If someone could tell me please, I'd be really grateful.

Happy St Georges Day!!!

Well today is St Georges Day!! Hoorah!!
You wouldnt have realised it from the apparent lack of patriotic paraphernalia adorning the streets!!

I sent my boys out of the house today wearing their red roses in their lapels and just how many people asked them if they were going to a wedding?? Four!!!

My eldest son who has patriotism running through his stoically English veins, told them in no uncertain terms that it was St Georges day and one of them even had the gaul to ask 'who?'

What has happened to this country? We are afraid to celebrate our Saint for fear of upsetting someone from another race and yet the Irish openly celebrate St Patricks day and quite rightly so.

I have heard that a few pubs are holding St George events so atleast thats a step in the right direction..isnt it? Perhaps, people will one day learn all the words to our National Anthem instead of making up whatever fits in with the tune??

Or will this just mean that come closing time a hoard of drunken rabble will be filling our streets and disturbing our peace singing what they believe to be patriotic chants of 'Ingerland. Ingerland!'

Personally, I tend to believe the latter!!
