Tag and be tagged

I was recently tagged by my mother who tagged me because I'd forgotten to complete this meme when first tagged by Lisa (around the time I went AWOL)!

The rules:
Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts.
The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given below (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like).
Tag 5 other friends to do this meme.
Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better.
Don’t forget to read the archived post and leave comments.

I've chosen this one as my family post because it was written back in the days when only my family read me and describes a typical family day out, ie, Dillon doesn't come because he's scouting or socialising, me forgetting something and us all enjoying a day together.

This post on friendship I wrote as a guest blogger on Frannie's blog. I was very nervous writing it as I feel I can print any old rubbish here but I wanted something good for Frannie.

Me? Well this post sums me up really. Tennis, family and friends. What you see is what you get.

On to my love, well this could be my love for my children, tennis, friends or food...or Joules. Researching this I've found that I haven't posted much about him, mostly things in passing. That's because when I started blogging he said he didn't want me blogging about him. Although when I posted his first birthday post he posed for his picture. Now he often asks 'what nice things are you saying about me'? This post pretty much sums him up. He's easy going, needs very little to keep going, when he has a problem he deals with it promptly and with little fuss and he brings lots of laughter and some unpleasant smells into our house.

I've chosen this post as my other post. I often seem to write advice posts which basically mean that I've done something stupid and I'm trying to prevent anyone else from being a dipstick too. This was maybe one of my least bright ideas but hey it gave me something to blog about right?

Alix, Katy, Misslionheart, BS and Debbie consider yourself tagged but only if you want to do it.

Sam, he always finds it amusing and doesn't seem to mind where he leaves his mark!

Steffi said...

lisa's chaos said...

Cool, I'm sure some of those links are before I started reading so I get the chance to see them now. :)

Julie said...

Funny and I love being pointed to 5 older posts I might have missed.

Beccy, this IS a great meme and I was tagged for it, but have yet to do it; which is kinda odd since I'm so "link-happy" anyway. Isn't it fun for you to re-visit old posts--for me, sometimes, it's like, "Did I write THAT???". Ha!

Thank you so much for linking to "Snackalicious"...momentum is building and THAT makes me excited :).
