I found this long meme here. Probably more fun to answer than to read. So I'm inventing just two rules. You must provide a link to where you got it and send it on to just one person, linking to them too. (Don't assume they read your blog, but send them a comment on their latest post.

It would be much simpler if I could just write"New meme, standard rules".

Now I'm going to send it to fancy french because, if she does it, she will send it on to someone interesting.

It occurs to me that I will post the list twice, once without answers so that when people copy it they won't have to erase the answers....

I also get very agitated when I am sleep deprived. Think five children, two are teething... Big agitation!
No meds, people just beg me to have a rest!! Poor people.

Good meme, well do it this week sometime, methinks.

I really liked this meme and will gladly do it in a short while. Your answers were fascinating, especially the fact that we were both born in the same hospital - St Mary's in Paddington. My folks were living in Maida Vale when I was born. Were yours in Hampstead?

I agree about the noise of an animal in pain being the worst thing ever. In fact I will probably use that if you don't mind.

Are your kids still staying with you or have you got your peace and quiet back yet?

Natalie. So many children. I wanted five, but stopped at three. Look forward to seeing your answers and whom you send it on to.

French Fancy. Sorry to get your name wrong! Sounds like I was teasing you. Really did not mean it. Actually we lived in Barnet, but moved to Hamstead later. We often drove past Maida Vale and my parents had friends there. Much later, my brother lived there.All three kids at home, although some of them say they will move out. As I said to Cathy this evening, the two most abused words in the English language are, "I will".
