  1. Hee hee - like that your 11 things are actually 10! I don't do the tag/award thing either - but I enjoyed reading your ones.

    1. Oh dear - I wonder what happened to #11 - I hadn't noticed its disappearance.

      11. I often make mistakes when I type in a hurry

  2. I think i will tag myself. I always like reading these kinds of post as it shows you a glimpse of other peoples life. I am very nosey.

    1. I just read your tag. Like my Steph,I see you like detectives and summertime.
      I am sorry but I have no idea who Phineas and Ferb are.
