This one is for the lads, nine words women use and what they really mean! This list was emailed to me so I've no idea who wrote the orginal list but it made me smile.
1.) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!
5.) Loud Sigh: This is not actually a word but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)
6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome.
8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU!
9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking "What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to #3.
What are you proud of?
My children although I'm not sure proud is a word I would really use.
What is the best thing you’ve ever won as a prize?
Winning my first tennis tournament at the age of 14 was pretty good (even though I won a wine glass which was not much good for a 14 year old); winning a tournament partnering Mum (she had already won it with Sam and wanted to win it with me as well); winning my first cash prize in tennis (£75, it paid for a trip to Legoland) but I guess the sweetest win was when I won the singles in my club championship in 2002. I hadn't really played singles for years and was up against against a really good Australian girl who had wiped me off the court the previous year. I played incredible tennis and three sets later emerged the victor. In answer to the question I guess I'm trying to say the buzz from winning was far better than the prizes I won.
Name something you do that is a waste of time.
Sometimes I think I spend too much time blogging but I rarely watch television now.
In what year of your life did you change the most?
1993, when Dillon was born. Before Dillon was born I was a selfish, self centered person, giving birth to this amazing, gorgeous, totally helpless little babe totally changed my attitude and now someone else was the centre of my life, dependent on me to survive.
