#Gettoknowme to know me tag

Well  my  new  Blog  Bro Wafflemethis  has  been kind enough to nominate me for the #Gettoknowme tag.  I don’t  think  I  have  ever  done  one  of  these  before  so  let’s see what is  what.

1Share your profile picture if you have one.



1. Who are you named after?  Well, when  my  parents  were  expecting  me , the  last  of  a  large  family. My  Dad’s  brother  Timothy  asked   if  I  was  a  girl would  they  call me  by   my  given  name. And  I  was,  so  I  am.

2. Do you like your handwriting?  Definitely  not,  my  writing  looks  like  a  spider  has  run  through  an  ink  pot. When I  was  about  5yrs , my  dad  took  the  fire  guard away  so  he  could  empty  the  ashes. My  brothers  were  playing  football in  the  house ( strictly  not  allowed) the  ball hit  me  and  I  fell putting  my  hand out  to  stop myself !  Being  a   left hander , it  was  my  left hand  that  went into  the  fire. After  a  trip  to  the  hospital with  my  bandaged, I went  to  school  where the  teachers  decided  to  make  me  use  my  right  hand….. scared  for  life!! 🙂

13. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Can I  be  a rainbow one, or if  not an  emerald green.

    Agree about the eyes, they always tell a story. I’d trust a person’s eyes before I’d trust what they might say! Eyes never lie. 🙂

    I always look at people’s eyes first, too. It’s amazing what you can see in there.

    I enjoyed all your answers, Willow. I learned a few things I didn’t know about you.

        You are too kind….that’s the second such post I have seen today anothe blogger had posted one which had many rather personal questions on it I have to say, at least your questions were not too invasive…lol

      • willowdot21
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 22:58:41

        No I would not of done it had they of been in any way invasive I am not keen on over sharing. The internet can be a scary enough place!! 😨😱

      • Michael
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:01:39

        Yes it certainly can….I can handle eye colour and name. I left out the last two questions on your quiz as I couldn’t remember some of them….
        Colour pants, well I went for what you could see….and as its summer here, we tend to be in shorts and singlets most of the time. It could have asked what colour singlet as that might have been interesting….black and white horizontal stripes…

        Ah! A convict no less!!!😣

      • Michael
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:04:52

        Yes, on day leave…lol….sadly I can’t confess to convict origins, I can confess to me grandfather’s family coming to Australia as boat people in the 1880’s.

      • willowdot21
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:18:56

        Well let’s hope you don’t need to visit America too soon then. My Dad’s family travelled from Dublin to Manchester in the early 1900s as boat people too. Dad then as he got older made his way to London via Oxford were he met my Mum. 💖

      • Michael
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:21:21

        Interestingly my Great grandfather went to America and fought in the civil war. Later he returned to Ireland, married my great grandmother and as things were so dire in Ireland at the time, he had a brother in Australia and so gathered up his family and came here…my grandfather was only a small boy at the time.

      • willowdot21
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:25:17

        The Irish have always been intrepid​ travelers, usually due to great poverty. Your grandfather was a worldwide traveller in the days when travel was anything but easy!

      • Michael
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 23:39:22

        Oh indeed and if it wasn’t for his bravery and desire to give his family a new and better life I would not be here…

        It is simply amazing!

      • willowdot21
        Feb 12, 2017 @ 22:59:38

        Btw the what colour pants are you wearing did make me smile!!

    My choice would be wine too unless it was a very hot day – then ice cold beer!


  8. Let's CUT the Crap!
    Feb 13, 2017 @ 22:44:52
