Now It's Time To Catch Up

Jiffy and I had a great time away (photos to follow), but today is back to life as normal.

So, worked this morning, and will admit have had a rest this afternoon before turning on the pc ... I try to be a good girl and not push myself when I feel my body saying no.

And so, I must catch up with the February Meme, and get my icons finished, and posted, to character20n20

February 17 - If you could go back in time and ask one person one question, what would it be?

Like many I have loads of questions I wish I had asked my parents, and I thought I knew the answers for them all!! However, that isn't this question ... so ...

I would ask my great-grandfather which was the favourite city he lived in (yes in the 1870 - 1900's) he lived in 2 cities in USA, one in Canada, and 4 in England). My grandma was born in Toronto.

February 18 - Who was your first real crush?

Mark S. I sat next to him when I was 9, and really liked him from then. Typical of me, he was the most popular boy in the class, and as the years progressed, the one who always had a girl-friend!

February 19 - If you could ask the country’s founding fathers one question, what would it be?

First I have to work out who that is!!! I suppose it would possibly be Edward the Confessor (c. 1003 – 5 January 1066), also known as Saint Edward the Confessor, was among the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England. Usually considered the last king of the House of Wessex, he ruled from 1042 to 1066. The son of Æthelred the Unready and Emma of Normandy, Edward succeeded Cnut the Great's son – and his own half brother – Harthacnut, restoring the rule of the House of Wessex after the period of Danish rule since Cnut (better known as Canute) conquered England in 1016. When Edward died in 1066, he was succeeded by Harold Godwinson, who was defeated and killed in the same year by the Normans under William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings.) Gradually England became one country, rather than a selection of kingdoms.

So, my question would be - After 20+ years of rule, and a strengthened country, do you not think that you should have had a son to pass on this heritage. (What a different England we would have!!)

PS - I will answer comments soon, I promise
