Fred & Ginger

Snowflake Challenge #9

I am a couple of days late as I don't turn on the computer on Sundays, and yesterday I wasn't feeling 100%, so I am doing a catch up now -

Challenge #9

In your own space, brag about yourself. Tell us what things you've done that you're proud of; the things that make you the wonderful person you are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I am never happy with anything I do however as many of you will know I was bullied at school ... not just by the girls I was with but by a couple of teachers ... so, to Miss Bodmin & to Mr Nolle let me say this ...

Miss Bodmin, you tried throwing me out of English lessons when I was 15, but one year later I got a grade B & a grade C in O levels. And, since the internet has been more popular I have managed to write some fanfics .... ithey may not be Shakespeare, but I have managed to write them ... and even had a few nice comments and Kudos over the years.  So, maybe I can't always spell things, and get sentances muddled; but there is no deed to try to refuse a child her education.

Mr Nolle. yes you thought I had promise when I copied with a pencil, but you never accepted that I am colourblind.  Well, sorry but I am ... which is a real pain.  But to not believe me when I got colours wrong is truly wrong.  And again fandom has taught me to use photo-editing stuff to make icons ... and I enjoy it (I made the one I am using).

So, not to brag - but despite teachers I have fun in fandom ... and yes, I can be involved.

Feeling Better - Thank You

Well a lazy day and an early night has really helped, so I am going to try and catch up as well as do some icons for one of the challenges I have signed up for. That is another thing I have done in the last month or so is signing up for more than one challenge at a time.

I have 3 birthdays coming up, and have done a bit of shopping but need to see what I actually have. I just hope I have got enough as most shops are closed. Well all but one of those people will understand if they also get an IOU, however my Dad's sister has never accepted the virus ... her theory being that she doesn't know anyone who has died from it (an odd line to draw, really!). Still, Mum & Dad would be laughing as she is always someone who lives in her own bubble ... as a classic example I will just tell you that Mum asked her to be a bridesmaid and a few weeks later she answered by saying that yes, whe would love to be a bridesmaid if they would change the date, as it would be the "wrong time of the month for her" ... Yes, that's Auntie Joyce!!

Well I had better get on and try and get caught up with you all ... and then do some icons, but before I close I will do the next question ...


19. What life lessons are you most grateful for?
I have lots to thank Mum & Dad for, but one of those is that of not running up debts on randomw things ... ie you don't need a new dinner service if you still have plates, and can't afford one. So on months like I have had, I have not worried about other things ... yes, if a fridge dies, I buy one, but other things can wait.
