Five reasons why I'm a good writer

This meme comes courtesy of Eliza at Doolittle , and as I can think of nothing to write, I though I may as well. Can I just say I have a little quibble with the title of the meme, I'm really not sure I am a good writer.... however-

1) I type pretty damn quickly, as I have the memory of a goldfish this can be useful, on the rare occasions I have something interesting in my head I can get it down before I forget!

2) I have a browser with a built in spell checker, as I type (quickly), lots of red squiggles are appearing under all the mistakes, if you read the earlier post they're filled with mistakes that are mostly due to my inability to proof read.... God Bless Safari 3!

3) I have interesting friends that do interesting things, every now and again (like this weekend), they do stupid thigs, resulting in us needing the emergency services, or spending the whole night driving. They also teach me new songs, and find me being a bit dense funny (thanks guys!)

4)I've had good teachers, go and read blogs like Niobe , or Cecily, and some of their great writing skills can't help but rub off on you!

5) Errrr, lets just say I know when to stop! Quite often I have nothing to say, so I don't bore you by talking rubbish about nothing!

I don't really have anyone to tag, but if you read this and fancy doing it then consider yourself tagged, and please leave a comment so I can come check it out!

PS, another meme courtesy of Niobe also coming soon, this one involves give aways...check back in a few days.

another weekend away

Firstly, thank you to Niobe for her kind comments on my last 2 posts, it was so nice to get home last night and read them. Niobe, I've sent you an email, but just in case anyone else was wondering, I am ok, I've just got back from a weekend away with my friends, and am feeling much better. I won't deny that sometimes I missed having Lex to keep me company, and just to share the things that went on, but it really was ok!
Of course al this was helped by one of the most epic weekends away in recent history!
The rugby on Saturday night was missed because of a long night spent driving up and down the valley worrying about a group of our climbers who were missing. In the end all was well, but by that point it was nearly 10pm, and we'd well and truly missed the rugby!I even had my own mini accident and if it wasn't for some sharp catching by my brother I might have been in need of mountain rescue myself! We then nearly had a mini panic, as by that point the fuel warning light was on on the minibus. On the Sunday someone else managed to sprain their ankle, and was lucky it wasn't worse!
as for today, I'm so grateful I don't have to be in all day, as i really need to do a bit of catching up!
