      Bless, you and your children and your whole family!
    Warm wishes, Alastair! 🙂

  3. I’M A LITTLE SLOW, ALASTAIR! Yesterday, when I read through the list of people you tagged, I didn’t notice my name! I only came back to look TODAY because my WP “Stats” page listed “kattermonran.com/2013/06/21/tagged-2/” as a “Referrer.” Thanks for thinking of me, and I’ll comply with the rules.

  4. Great photo of you and your (eldest or youngest). I enjoy reading these posts as I feel you open the door to getting to know you a bit better. Thanks for thinking of me. BTW, I like your new gravatar. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  7. The more you reveal the “inner you” Alastair the more we all realize how very special you are, in so many ways! A great post, and fun too! Naturally I love the photo! 🙂 xx

    • Thank you Penny. I truly appreciate these comments. I have an inspirational quote going on tomorrow that I need to look at daily and maybe it will sink in. I just hope it helps loads of other people too

  8. Great to know more about you again and great picture. So you alphabetise everything????? are you clothes in alphabetical order? ( I know someone who does, by designer label. Can’t happen to me I don’t have designer clothes)
    But I have to admit, my DVD’s are in alphabetical order on the shelf , my books as well. I like it neat too and it is easier to find something. I even made an excell list of both. There you see we have the same ideas! 🙂

    • I have an access list of DVD’s and Blu-Rays. along with who I have (had) lent them to. I don’t lend any more. I lent someone The Lord Of the Rings; 13 years later I brought it again – before the films came out. Then I lent some films to someone else, and they vanished into the ether.

      Clothes are in alphabetical order of colour. Black, blue, brown, green, grey, red, white.

  9. Loved learning more about you ~ I like buying flowers for self too!
    And peanut butter – (and almond butter) — Great shot Alastair – Enjoyed this! x RL

  10. oooOOOo fun! I love your questions!! The questions are key–and your answers are very interesting,. I have to say, the pic of a young and proud papa is just so heartwarming and beautiful, Alastair. Somehow, in my life, I have met some of the best men–the ones that stick around for their kids, you know? I was raised mostly by my Dad, and he was the best. (I went “wild” after I moved in with Mom as a teenager…and she let me!)

    I’ll post tomorrow! I am a’surfin today–saying: hey…that’s really good! (where applicable)

    Hope your day rocks, cupcake!

  11. Love the photo! Just love it!! And great job on getting all of the die hard on dvd-I’m so proud of you! Your post made me laugh, then cry when I saw you tagged me 🙂

  12. Hahaha! Your priceless. 🙂
    That’s lovely you buy flowers for yourself. 33 plank? LMAO I love peanut butter! Trees are my favourite wood too! I so can’t stop laughing! Hugs for playing. Paula xxx
