Three Quotes Challenge – Day 2


I am happy to have been nominated again for this challenge, this time by Inese, whose blog, Inese MJ Photography is excellent. Inese is a wonderful photographer over in County Tipperary in Ireland, and her posts are always really interesting and inspirational. Most are about places and events in Ireland, but others are from places further afield. I recommend you all to check out Inese’s blog. Thank you so much for the nomination, Inese!

Here are the rules for this challenge:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one fresh quotation on three consecutive days.
  3. On each of the three days, nominate three folk who have not yet taken part to continue the challenge.

As with many challenges, the rules can be bent a little, if need be, to fit in with people’s blogging schedules. Inese, who nominated me, posted all three quotes in one go. I’ve also seen people posting them over three weeks rather than three days. It’s really down to whatever suits you.

This time I’ve picked quotes with no common theme other than the fact that they’re all amusing.  My second quote will probably appeal more to older people – including me! All I can say about it is that I’m trying to believe it’s true. Age creeps up on us all, but as they say, you’re as young as you feel – and I still feel 30. Of course, feeling it and looking it are two different things, but I won’t go into that one. Not to mention that all six of my children are over 30 anyway.

Enough of that, here’s the quote . . .


. . .  and I categorically refuse to be a cheese.

Here are my next three nominees:

  1. Hninn at Hnin adventures
  2. Frances at Loving Leisure Time
  3. Maria at Doodles and Scribbles

      I’m glad you like tha quote! This is a fun challenge to do, and doesn’t take long. There’s no obligation to accept, but if you do, I’ll be very happy to hop over and have a read. 🙂

  6. Funny quote Millie but true. We are only as old as we feel

    • milliethom says:

      Yes, it’s a well know idea, isn’t it? I’m of the opinion that many things improve with age, including people. We can’t deny that looks fade, but let’s hope the mind benefits from knowledge gained over the years. It doesn’t matter that I think I’m going barmy, at times! 😀

      • Oh I have a lot of those days too when my senses become overloaded with work and family and outside commitments. But you are right, the looks fade but our life experience has enhanced us in other areas!

  7. Good quote Millie and I agree! Hope the book is coming along well!

  8. I really like this quote! LOL!

  9. Antonia says:

  10. As always, I love your challenge answer! 🙂
