E

I spotted a fun-looking task on Harriet's blog; come up with 10 favourite things beginning with a certain randomly selected letter. She got the quiz from Cornflower, who got it from someone else etc. etc., I don't know where it all started. But the idea is you ask for a letter in the blog comments, and then go and do it on your blog - and I got E. Which is quite tricky! But it gave me the chance to play with Picasa 3 again (I've just discovered the Sepia function; be warned)

But I think I've managed it. I had to delve into French once. With that knowledge in hand, points for whoever can work out my 10 things beginning with E... You might have to click on the image to make it bigger, and one of them will be very tricky for non-Thomas family members. Have fun!

If you'd like to join in, ask for a letter in the comments - I'll get my Scrabble tiles and let you know...

  1. Um, I dunno... but would the French one be escalier, the staircase? I'm still a little confused by the whole concept.

  2. Hmmm - there's Elizabeth our beloved Queen; Eeyore; Egypt?; Is that Emelia Earhart?; Envelopes too! Wheee! Simon you have a cute baby penguin, but that doesn't begin with 'e' ... bah! I give up!

  4. Emperor penguin! That had me wracking my brains for some reason.

    The picture of the bridge, is that supposed to represent England?

  5. Nice pictures! and how clever all the comments are. I don't get the bridge one but maybe that's the family one?

  6. I, too, am drawing a blank on the bridge....
    But would love a letter to give this a try myself!

  7. Yes it's the bridge that's stumping me too. Perhaps OVW will comment and stop our brains churning.

  9. Ah! I do have the bridge one - did you take the photo Si?

    The poet somettimes known as Q (Sir Arthur Quiller Couch) once wrote a poem about it (and for 13 years you lived within half a mile of it)in Eckington, Worcestershire

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
