Seven?

I have been terribly remiss about passing on awards and joining in with the tag list, it's my shy and retiring nature you see, it just won't let me show off. But I'm going to have a good go and try to think of seven 'interesting' things about Millennium Housewife....And to pass on a few awards.


So, I was lucky enough to be tagged by the lovely Confused Take That Fan and Boy From Oz as well as the hilarious Potty Mummy , 21st Century Mummy and Nunhead Mum of One, all of them blogs I love to read so it doubled the pleasure. As mentioned above I have to write seven things about myself and tag others in return...


So, seven things eh? Sounds familiar, let's have a go....

1. Lust: I was born a mermaid, it was quite a shock both for My Mother and the midwife, they haven't had a live Human to Mermaid birth for 49 years round here. They had to put me in water straight away, luckily one of the nurses found a big potty which sufficed until they could get me to the sea. About eight years ago I was swimming in my lovely glistening bit of water when I spied Husband walking along the shore, I had to have him. Had to. So writhing in lustful thoughts I bought a spell to change my tail into legs. The rest as they say is history. And let that be a lesson to you about where lust gets you. Married to a ginger surveyor, that's where.

Pride: I am most proud of my chocolate collection. I have been adding to it for years and am most diligent in keeping it updated with the latest lines. I keep it on a shelf in my stomach.

Envy: I do envy my sister, she lives in Los Angeles with an extremely large pond between her and My Mother.

Wrath: Buses make me wrathful, I don't know whether it's just the way their headlights are positioned but they always seem to me to look like they think they are much much better than you.

Greed: Husband would say I'm greedy when I won't share my bottle of wine with him. To me it's an invesment in the future, the more pickled I am the less I'll age.

Gluttony: is something I will fight all my life, and it often feels like I have one hand tied behind my back (and the other hand has a large piece of chocolate cake in it).

Sloth: This sin was invented just for me. I LOVE sloth, call yourself slothful with pride and it gets you out of all sorts of things. "why haven't you cleaned the house for a month?" "Oh that's just me being slothful" "Why do we need a cleaner when you don't work" "Sorry, that's just little old slothful me again, got to go I'm off to put my feet up and read a magazine, byee," You get the jist.







So now to awards, I was incredibly lucky to get this from Devoted and would like to pass it on to Rosiero who writes an amazing blog about life with a alcoholic, she is never self pitying, always entertaining and an all round good blogger friend.






I received this one from the wonderful Mud in the City and would like to pass it on to the hilarious Confused Take That Fan, she makes me laugh (loudly), she makes Husband laugh (loudly), tells it like it is and makes me think, phew!
















Fabulous Cheshire Wife and Rosiero gave me this one and I'd like to pass it onto Mud in the City, I just love living vicariously through her romantic adventures....

Lol. The seven Sins, eh, and your guilty of them all!!! Many many thanks for your award to me. I shall cherish it. Mwah and a happy Christmas to you and yours, in case I can't get to call by again beforehand.

Mud in the City said...

Thank you!

Loved the deadly sins and you struck a chord with #1. I have a (hither to little mention) penchant for gingers.

No idea why.

Ernest de Cugnac said...

vintage mh, and very funny. Much like your unshared bottle of wine. And your husband ... he surveys ginger? No wonder you couldn't resist him.

A Confused Take That Fan said...

Thanks for the award MH. Much appreciated.
Didn't realise you were a mermaid. Do you look like Ariel?
I married a ginger too. A good looking one mind. I am not a mermaid though.
As for the wine, the more pickled you are the less you'll NOTICE you've aged...
Nice Sevens. Unlike the film.

Mmm said...

Well, that has to be the most unusual list i've ever had.

Mmm said...

Ha-ha1 you see what happens when you are talking and leaving comments at the same time. I meant to say unusual list I've seen! hilarious,
you really got me on the chocolate collection until I read:
"I keep it on a shelf in my stomach!"

Tattie Weasle said...

Ahhh sloth! Procrastination without the guilt - heavenly if only I could get rid of the guilt bit!
Wonderful!

Boyfromoz said...

Wonderful stuff, yet again MH. I'll get my net out in the event that you ever consider going to sea again!
Your sense of humour is such that I'm sure you'd enjoy reading Nelson De Mille novels - plenty of those seven delicious sins to be had there!
Pip Pip!

Millennium Housewife said...

Rosiero, mwah to you too girl!

cheshire wife said...

I think that we all suffer from the seven sins at this time of the year!

Congratulations on the awards.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Heh heh, you make me laugh too you mad woman. Those 7 are fabulous. I was also born a mermaid, but I was a rare tail-less one. Shhhhhh. Don't tell.
And congrats on all the awards. :D

Congratulations on the awards.

Frog in the Field said...

Envy,,that's good one, I too would be envious if my sister lived that far from my mother!

that girl? said...

I would love to put a pond between me and my mother and am so with you on the greedy bottle of wine! The thought of the whole 1st Jan no drinking thing being just around the corner so Im off to open another bottle of red. Happy Advance New Year!

Susanna (A Modern Mother) said...

Like the part about the big pond...

Just reminded me I need to respond to a meme, I'm so bad at them.

Devoted said...

Wishing you all the best in the new year and blessings to you and yours!

ALMOST MRS AVERAGE said...

LOL - Cannot believe I missed this. Must have had something to do with Christmas getting in the way or my head being stuck in the sand. Fabulous stuff MH. I never knew we keep our chocolates in the same place :-D
