Both  Emma and Arlene did this before me!

I was going to say sorry for a rather ‘nothingy’ post but actually this is rather full of useless information about me, so I guess it isn’t nothingy?  Anyway I genuinely haven’t worn anything worth photographing, unless you want to see me in a hoody and PJs… which I doubt. I honestly don’t even have anything planned this week apart from work, so fingers crossed someone asks me to do something amazing and I get all dressed up! I also haven’t done anything particularly exciting this weekend, apart from eating an amazing dinner and pudding lovingly cooked by my friend Lauras mum, but at a dinner table of 6 it seemed a little rude to whip out my phone… so no snaps!

I’m feeling hugely ‘meh’ for want of a better word, and have been putting off housework for days now, so its nap time now, then a bit of housework and then another early night. Just call me granny Lauren!

If you want to do this, then please let me know the links, everyone loves a good nose surely? Also if you’ve got any more links to posts like this that you’ve done please link me to them! I do want to do the handwriting post, but haven’t seen it around recently…. you can all see my awful scrawl!

(Anyone know how to stop blogger putting HUGE SPACES between lines when you press enter? So annoying)

    Loads of new odd facts about Lauren to make the mind bend. I may well do this one on a rainy day if I have a couple of hours to kill.  I am quite excited that I’m taller than you, tee hee x

    I love these kinds of posts, it’s always interesting to know more about the blogger! I can’t believe how early you start work, but then I remember that I used to start work sometimes at 6.30am too! Congratulations on the poker win too! I like playing poker but I don’t have a very good poker face! xx
