They Say Everything Good Comes In Threes

Friday fun to be had with a challenge from Rory, the creator of A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip! as detailed in his post below. I have loved reading other blogger’s answers today – so much fun! I could not resist joining in:


Please feel free to create a post yourself with your three things challenge and pingback to Rory!

I have posted a list of some of the other bloggers at the end of this post. Have a little lookie for more Friday fun!

Name three things…

You can dunk in tea or coffee?

Party Ring biscuits – ooooh go on then!

Churros (well dunking them in hot chocolate would be a better idea)

Hob-nobs – the marines of the biscuit world (nod to Peter Kay)

You can enjoy at a carnival?

Face-paint – it’s not often that you have a legitimate excuse for face paint

Dressing up in clothes as if you are part of a cabaret act

Carnival capers like jumping up on a passing float and grabbing the microphone

You can’t enjoy when it’s windy?

Walking out of the hair dressers after spending £80 on a cut and blow dry with a senior stylist

Sweeping up the leaves off the drive-way (as soon as you have finished you turn around and the drive is covered with leaves again!)

Wearing a wrap-round skirt – Goldfinch says nobody will mind!

Your body can’t do?

Fit into the jeans I wore as a teenager

Pull-ups – my upper arms are so weak!

Keepie-uppies (I used to back in the day, but I am absolutely hopeless at them now…use or lose your soccor skills) – you all know what keepie uppies are don’t you?

You don’t learn at school?

How to deal with probate

How to change nappies

How to book a holiday

You can put onto a pizza?

Black olives

Rocket (or artichoke)

Pesto (instead of a tomate pasata)

You can eat with?


Knife & Fork


You don’t suggest you do at home blindfolded?


Use the Sabatier knives – I cut my fingers every other day even without a blindfold

Put your undies on

Ironing – it won’t work well, for so many reasons

That are important to you?




That you love to do at the beach?

Get my feet wet

Run my fingers through the sand

Play games like football with a big gang of friends

That you do in the morning?

Eat breakfast

Brush my teeth

Have a shower

That you do every time you log in to your blog?

Click that little bell sign in the top right corner to look at the notifications: comments, likes, follows etc and then try to answer any comments.

Click onto WP Reader and look through the posts of other readers

Check out the writing prompts and see if I have any ideas for posts

  1. We have parenting classes in our high school and all students take a class where they are assigned a doll for the week that has to be treated like a real child. Still doesn’t prevent kids in 7th grade from getting pregnant (13ish). There is a new requirement called financial literacy that covers everything from paying bills, budgets, and planning for one’s death. They have birth and death covered, but they forgot about everything in between lol. Schools are taking up the slack for bad parenting. Great answers 🙂

      1. I’d take the UK system over ours any day. I think a lot of people think their education system is broken though lol

    It’s true, putting your undies on at night in the dark is awkward enough – okay not undies, boxers, back in my day undies were undies! The amount of times l have put the damn things on backwards is untrue and found myself walking with back slightly upwards l lose count! Then that panic when you need to go for a pee, just don’t ask!!

    Excellent answers 🙂

    1. In my old job I used to have get up before 5am to get ready for work. Bright lights seem painful at that time of the morning so I would get dressed in the dark.
      20% of the time I would realize at work that my “undies” were on inside out or back to front!

      1. Yep can totally relate, l used to have to start really early when l was married and got dressed in the dark. I even used to lay them on a flat surface the night before so l would remember, but most nights l went to bed late, got up a few hours later and then forgot the strategy and simply turned them around put them on … and the rest is history 🙂

        1. It makes me wonder how many people are walking round London with their underwear inside-out or back-to-front!

          I am still working on the sunshine blogger post…hopefully it will be ready to post over the weekend. The last three days have been work days so I have a lot to catch up on.
