Does the word Skiver/Skiving/Skived exist outside of the UK?
It means someone who's avoiding work or other duties.
I've got til next Tuesday off work! I'm so happy, I think.
Before I get to that the lovely His Girl Friday nominated me for a blogger award!
Woo! That's really lovely of her, if you haven't seen her blog then please do!
Here's what I have to do
- Thank the person who nominated you by linking his/her blog.
- Answer the following 4 questions.
- Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to fellow bloggers.
- Let the Bloggers know that you have nominated them.
How long have you been blogging for?
Only since December!
Why did you start blogging?
I always wanted to do a blog recording my many purchases of junk and secondhand clothes, I accidently discovered the world of vintage blogging through Diary Of A Vintage Girl and didn't look back.
What type of blogs do you like to follow/read?
Ok, well I did look back - just to delete those bloggers who deign not to talk to me and those of the cliquey persuasion. I follow anyone who interests and inspires me
What is the one thing you'd like to improve on as a blogger?
Photos! it's been a long winter and even though it's May it's still not warm and dry so I'm STILL waiting to do some outside posts in good light!

Back to my week so far. Did you see yesterday's jumble sale post?
I've been really good, the last two days have been centred around getting up at a reasonable hour, then a dog walk, then a swim, then another dog walk. I've been a bit lazy in between all this exercise, but it's only Tuesday.
I'm hoping to get some charity shopping in this week, but if not, I erm, found a 1930s (?) fish paste jar in the woods! People used to chuck out quite a lot of old glass and ceramics so you can find some great stuff if you're lucky. I've got a clay bottle of boot polish from about 1875.
The fish paste jar looks like a grenade doesn't it?
The woods is mostly mud at the moment so just trudging around is hard work. Here's some photos of where I've been walking
I can't wait until I can go out and pose amongst the greenery!
