Thank you Mean Moody Middleaged Mom, Confused Take That Fan, Not enough Mud and Berthddu Suit for awards, I get all emotional to think someone out there loves this little frog (sniff).
I've also been tagged by said Welsh Blogger to do the following:
supply six random snippets of information about myself.
Tag Rules:
Link to the person who tagged you. Post the rules on the blog. Write six random things about yourself. Tag six people at the end of your post. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

only six? erm, where to start.

1. I once went to an Agricultural Show with Buster Blood Vessel of Bad Manners.

2. I'm married to a beef farmer and my initials are now CJD.

3. I have a tendency to give my pets ridiculous names:
Spot (no spots at all)
Truffles (Mother in Law thought I said Shovel)

4. Though loyal and generous to my fab chum friends, I never forgive and forget.

5. I have the ability to create the most amazingly awful Trifle ever.

6. I had Blue Hair and looked like something out of Fraggle Rock when at Art College.

I don't know who to tag, so I'll think on it....

What great snippets Frog. I'm with you on the ridiculous pet names, I have rabbits called Tiger and Butterfly and chickens called Bumble Bee and Eagle!

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

CJD, brilliant!

Kitschen Pink said...

My trifle is so famous in the family it is referred to as 'A Trifle Messy' every Christmas - at least I think they're referring to my trifle..... either way, I suspect it has something to do with too much cream and sherry - the only two ingredients in which I have much interest!
Can't stop chuckling about CJD! t.x

CJD is great

When I was little, we had a cat called Bimbo....I don't think my parents realised the connotations of the word!

God, I loved this

GoneBackSouth said...

Did Buster Blood Vessel turn up with all those baked beans on his head?

Adventure Togs said...

I have an easy cheating trifle recipe that always comes up trumps: Swiss roll, frozen berries and sherry in raspberry jelly. Top with tinned custard with melted white chocolate mixed in, and your done. They'll be begging for more!

Mel said...

I love the CJD initials. As for trifle I have never tried and alas my pets are far too normally named Milly and Tessa although my daughter wants a puppy she can call either Sportacus or Fifi, hmm

Frog in the Field said...

Dear Berthddu Suit, how can you possible name a rabbit butterfly? And a chicken Bumble? does it hum..thank goodness I am so sensible with the names I choose.

Tara, you're laughing at me again!! Don't make me come over there!

Hi Kitschen Pink, my trifle looked perfectly fine, just tasted hideous. Never, repeat never, try the Gary Rhodes recipe.

Hello Valley Girl..of course they did...

Thank you Auntie Gwen

GBS, BBV was very clean, I think he wore a T-Shirt and denium shorts, no beans...and no poking his tongue out.

Thanks Ad Togs, I'll try it.

Hi Mel, you're far too sensible, let the frog change all that. I can be a considerable bad influence without even meaning to be, it is one of my natural talents.

What a list! Love the initials of course - mine (in blogland) are CJ but I'm a sheep farmer. Doesn't quite have the same ring about it though!

How do you know Buster Blood Vessel? I just can't imagine it -chalk and cheese, you'll have to write a special explanatory post about it.

Sparx said...

That's a great post, thanks for the chuckle! I had blue hair too when I was at theatre school and I never forgive and forget either. Although the most adventurous thing I ever named a pet was 'Ruffles', I do have an acquaintance who named her cat 'Screaming Beasty Feet'

Housewifeinthehighlands said...

Hi, enjoying your blog. CJD! There is a doctor nearby whose number plate is M RSA.

Jo Beaufoix said...

I love the pet names. Isn't Sprocket from Fraggle Rock? I used to love that programme. :D

I had turquoise hair at art college, with matching shoes. Jackie Magazine took my picture in the street. My friend was turquoise with envy.

Mean Mom said...

Blue hair? Great! We called our first cat Big Pussy. (I don't know why - we just didn't think!) It was OK until I had to take her to the vet. I sat squirming, as I realised that, when it was your turn to go in, the receptionist called out your pet's name, followed by your surname!

Love the photo on your last post and the story is hilarious! You seemed to do rather more than your fair share of work, I think. Still, at least you didn't have to poke the fire. That would have been exhausting wouldn't it?

A Confused Take That Fan said...

Frog - Great initials. Mmmm...beef. Love the pets names (esp Custard), I had my nose pierced when I was at art college (twice, just to make sure). Love your 6 facts. Love the Frog!

what happened ?how did i get HERE? said...

funny as ever family nickname was'animal' after the drummer in the muppets thanks tomy rather wild and pikny hair...and my sister called her spiky aloe very plant after me as she thought we shared the same profile in sillouhette....hmm!

Frog in the Field said...

Hi Crystal, you're brave, sheep are completely maaaaaaad.

Well, Blog that Mama, I got talking to him on a cb radio and thought it was just a 'handle' had no idea it was the real one until he sang to me.

Careful Sparx, you'll be snorting tea out your nose again..

HWin the H, that's an awesome number plate, bloody brilliant.

Hi Jo, Sprocket was (sadly) something I thought up all on my little own

Ah Miss Hope, you are indeed such a sweetie! I'm quite green and turquoise with envy myself.

Mean Mom...OHMYGOD!!
I am crying laughing at this one...speechless!

Hello confused..gosh what a rebel you are!

Hello how Did I get here, do we share a sister?
