The lovely Susan K Mann tagged me back in March to do an “On My Birthday” meme. At the time I toyed with the idea of doing it for William’s birthday but then time passed and now it’s July – oops! Thankfully my birthday is this month so I can still join in and pretend that I left it this late on purpose so as not to feel like a total and utter failure.
Laura Gibson 8th July 2012
The rules are that I have to answer some set questions about my very own birthday so, without further ado, here goes…
This month. Sorry, but I’m keeping it vague on purpose to stop naughty vagabonds stealing my details and emptying my bank account (not that there’s much money in it!).
Pick 3 people who share your birthday and share what you know about them
Loads of people have been born on my birthday. But, ever the rebel, I’m only going to let you know about 2 of them, Don’t worry though, it is an awesome fact – it’s my mother and grandfather! That’s right, 3 generations of one family all with the same birthday. Oh yes, and my nephew was very nearly born on my birthday too but he decided on being fashionably late and arrive the following day.
Is anyone listed as being born on the same day and the same year as you (i.e. 1974)? If so, what do you know about them?
Listed where? The phonebook? My mum and Grandad are both in there so does that count?
List 3 people who died on your birthday and tell us what you know about them
A tad gruesome but whatever floats your boat. In all seriousness there have been too many people who have died during July over the years. Especially all those who were caught up in the 7/7 London bombings in 2005 and were sadly killed.
List 3 notable events that took place on your birthday
Easy, my grandfather was born and then, many years later, my mother was born. Twenty-odd years after that, I entered the world. I mean, how much more notable can you get??
Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday
This isn’t a holiday but it should be – July is National Ice Cream Month over in the U.S. Cool, huh?
So, that’s it. Everything you ever wanted to know (or not) about my birthday (sort of). This meme was originally started by Kate from The Five F’s blog who’s trying to get as many bloggers as possible to link up to her birthday meme blog post so that she eventually gets a person who was born on all 366 days of this year.
I’m now officially supposed to tag some fellow bloggers to carry on the meme but I feel a bit silly about doing that since I was tagged so long ago. If you want to have a go at this though and link up to Kate’s blog, feel free. If you click on the badge below it’ll take you to Kate’s page where you can link up and read everyone else’s birthday posts.
