Crystal Jigsaw said...

Crystal xx

Frog in the Field said...

Blimey, that's a lot of answers to think up! - I'm not playing!
How was Granny?

Self employed mum said...

Hi Crystal, it was good fun. I did a bit of cheating, copied and pasted the whole thing and some of my answers were the same as Dgibbs so I didn't need to change them. But shhhhh don't tell anyone.
5'6 with hazel eyes ooohhh spooky right enough. x

Self employed mum said...

Hi Frog, go on you know you want to play!
Granny was great thanks for asking, very responsive, I wasn't the least bit upset, like I thought I might have been but that was because I thought she might have been/looked worse and she didn't. Her room is full of the kids pictures from babies right up, I find that upsetting looking back at my babies, but only because I know she doesn't remember them and I wish she did, only because they gave her such great pleasure. But I feel better now I've been.

Self employed mum said...

Hi Suzy, LOL I have a supply of AA batteries in the bedside table, I buy the multi packs at christmas when the shop assistants think they're for the kids toys. Sometimes I'm dying to say rather loudly in the queued out shops full of harrassed people. 'Actually the batteries are for me and my toy!'
Have a read at 'Sex Dissappointment' in my September archives you might like the little poem at the end. ha ha

dgibbs said...

AA batteries are in high demand around here. Mp3 players, remotes. and toys. Of course I have a hidden stash.

Oh and jelly and jam are different. Jelly is made from just the juice and jam has fruit in it.
