Half term day two

How many Deb's World family members does it take to change a lightbulb?  Two.  One to rootle around in the garage and find a replacement bulb, which doesn't work so she then has to go into town to the light bulb shop and buy a new one, which is put in the lamb and that doesn't work either -  and one to notice (after about 10 minutes of wondering why the new bulbs don't work) that somehow the plug which is hidden behind the telephone plug underneath the hall table has been pulled out.  Hmmm.

Phone message which made me literally Laugh Out Loud -' Mum, do you fancy doing the Three Peaks Challenge in Yorkshire with me and J? You climb three of Britain's highest peaks.  It's 26 miles and you have to complete it in under 12 hours. Let me know if you want me to sign you up'. You'd think that after knowing me for 26 years, she would have known the answer to that without having to ask!

Unexpected fame - turns out that my work colleague who has just published a book (currently available at a very good price to download onto your Kindle) has included a character with my name.  So I had to download the book to find out what my character is like and whether or not I should still be talking to the author when we go back to school next week.  I'm up to chapter three and I still haven't appeared.  I wonder who will play me in the film version?

That is very exciting to be in a book Deb! I liked the phone message, my mother would have the same reaction!

LOL at the phone message!
Will you be revealing the name of the book? Or wait until you find out how you are portrayed . . .

Made me smile :). Great phone message - and I'm guessing you are really up for that challenge, aren't you? :). Oooh, do let us know the name of the book once you've made an appearance! Are you not tempted to flick/fast forward?

I'm laughing out loud too! Anybody who left me a phone message like that would need some kind of medical assistance shortly afterwards :)

Love that phone message! I take it your answer was no. :)

So, my burning question is, did you phone right back and ask him to sign you up ? Looking forward to hear more about your character.

My reaction to that phone message would have been the same as your own, I'm guessing!

I'd assume that message was a wrong number if someone had left it for me. :)
