Fun Monday # 59 My Aphabet....
Swampy has set us a mammoth fun task this week. I'm going to concentrate on me, my family and travel~ of course this might change as I begin to write who knows because I certainly don't!!
A.... I'm mrs Average, an Aquarian, born before Apollo 11 took Armstrong and Aldrin to the moon mrs A is not a high Achiever but she Adores her children and grandchildren, she thinks they are Amazing (grand/mother's prerogative) and takes she pride in all their Accomplishments. mrs A would have been Anonymous if it wasn't for all her blog Amis. Oh and ms A has been to America, she has seen the inside of Alcatraz, relaxed on Anna Marie Island and visited the Alhambra in Spain.
B........her Boobs and Bottom are too Big! she doesn't like Beer and gets easily Bored which is why she had Become an avid Blogger (this also contributes to the Big Bottom syndrome). She was Bred in Berkeley and lived close to Berkeley Castle. She learned to swim in a Brook in the castle meadow, alongside the cows (literally) and now lives in Bristol. She likes Books and still has all her childhood Books and those of her children I know she's pretty Barmy(mad) but that's the way it is! She was planning a Bike ride over Easter But the weather is so Bad she doesn't want to get pneumonia! Travel destinations include Bigbury in Devon (first ever family holiday at the age of 16) and she had to take net and stiff nylon petticoats in a carrier Bag (all the rage in 1960 even if they did take up so much room in the small car)and doesn't that skirt look hideous it was lilac and white! Confirmation enough that she's Barmy!! Her eldest daughter graduated from Bournemouth University so she's been there. She has also Been to Barbados, Boston or Boston cont, Buffalo (great shopping Mall) and Busch Gardens.
C........she has always Considered herself a caring person, others, of Course may not agree! Championing the underdog at school (often got her into trouble) and her Career has taken her from nursing to social services and education for Children. Her husband thinks she is conformist and I suppose she does keep to the rules (well, maybe not always on fun monday!). She can be Cantankerous (never you say!), is often Cautious and because of her inferiority Complex (from childhood~ families can be a pain sometimes) she is extremely Competitive and likes to Challenge herself.
