    On time

    Things I could potentially be, but it would be a lot of work or out of character



    A pessimist

    Things that I can never be

    A sister

    An I.T. specialist

    A ballet dancer šŸ˜†

  2. Steph. I like the No to ‘ballet dancer’! The only dancing class I would be allowed in is one for shire horses! šŸ˜†

    Have you no siblings? I give you some of mine!

  3. Sorry, I am ‘a sister’ – what am I talking about?

    My brain is fuzzy – blame the pills šŸ˜¦

    I think what I was thinking was that I don’t ‘have’ a sister and I wish I did.

  4. Oooh! There’s a kind offer!

    My twin brother was never much use at advising on make-up but I suppose I should be thankful, he didn’t borrow my clothes either šŸ˜‰

  5. Grannymar,

    All God’s creatures got a place in the choir!


    At least your brother didn’t take your dates, as happened with a pair of identical twin women I knew in the North – the poor fellows never knew which of them would turn up!

  6. Steph ~ the only help I got from my brothers was “You’re not going out in that outfit, are you?” or when watching me put make up on the remark was “You still look like the back of a bus!” We all know the back of a Dublin bus on a wet November day is not a pretty sight! šŸ˜†

    Ian ~ You never heard me sing! I was asked not to come back to a choir in my young days, and the same happened at Irish dancing classes!

  7. Ian – my twin brother married one of my best friends from school


    my husband’s paternal grandfather divorced his second wife and married the school friend of his youngest daughter. So my mother-in-law (who was the eldest daughter) has a step-mother who is younger than her!

    Complicated things…families

  8. Great list. Very thoughtful and original.

    I’ll just say… same here. šŸ™‚

    @Steph: I gotta say I was totally baffled by your “sister” problem. I just figured you were a nun, but then Ian explained it so it made sense.
    And I didn’t even TRY to follow your other family tree comment. šŸ™‚

  9. Sixty, having met Steph at the Awards the idea of her being a nun made me laugh! I think we are real kindred spirits. Pity we live so far apart.

  10. You could potentially be a blonde bombshell? But why would you want to be? Surely Grannymar you’ve got enough toyboys already??

  11. I’ll give it a go

    Little effort




    Supportive of people who need it.


    a Singer


    a car driver (never took me test)



    married again


    There y’go….

  12. Nick ~ after the cosmetic disaster in the past couple of weeks I’ll stay as I am! With my luck I might end up green instead of blond, and then Toyboys would run faster than Olympians!

    Magpie ~ interesting selection!

  13. Judy that is rather a surprise since I produced my answers on the spur of the moment.

  14. First off… do you really think that singing ability has every stopped chart success?

    Things I could be with a little effort
    – Devastating (I just need to note more goings on)
    – Tidy
    – Concise (edit, edit and edit again)

    Things I could potentially be, but it would be a lot of work or out of character
    – In the right place at the right time (GPS will help)
    – Muscular (I can do the heavy lifting, its repeating the heavy lifting on a regular basis that’s the problem)
    – The right temperature (no idea how it’s done)

    Things that I can never be
    – Innocent.(My mind just works out the worst potential use)
    – A Master (’cause every fibre of my being wants to be a jack)
    – Thin. My ribcage is XXL. I just let my belly catch up.
