Just another meme in lieu of a real post

From blue milk.

1) Five names you go by


My IRL name

Mrs Newman (This is my married name, which I do not use except occasionally I’ll get called it by assumption, but it really isn’t me)

Raye -from friends, diminutive of my IRL name

Squirt – Well I don’t really go by this anymore (fortunately). It was my nickname in highschool because I was a little squirt.

2) Three things you are wearing right now.

Cream coloured shorts (hate them, but need to get some washing done, so its all I’ve got right now)

Stripy t-shirt (Bleach accident has rendered some parts of the navy stripes pink so this is officially a house shirt)

Comfy underwear

3) Two things you want very badly at the moment.

To finish my thesis without too many sleepless nights

To have completed the Christmas shopping as quickly and painlessly as possible

4) Three people who I’d like to see fill this out.

Luli, Hellonhairylegs and the person reading this!

5) Two things you did last night.

Hosted a Christmas party.

Stayed up late drinking cocktails.

6) Two things you ate today.

Party left overs and candy coated peanuts.

7) Two people you last talked to on the phone.

My mum and a well-mannered friend who rang to thank my husband and I for our party. Can I just say that most kids of my generation do not have manners like and this and don’t even RSVP properly – little lone thank the host with a nice phone call.

Two things you are going to do today.

Go to bed early (oops, getting a little for that)

Clean up the house (mostly got done)

9) Two longest car rides.

Road trip from Melbourne (caught the train to and drove back from,  car trip of about 14hours)

As a kid I spent two weeks in a campervan being driven around New Zealand. Does that count as a car ride?

10) Two of your favourite drinks.


Gin and Tonic
