Three Quotes Challenge – Day 3


Once again, I am happy to have been nominated for the Three Quotes 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!

Tse 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 seen other people posting them over three weeks rather than three days. It’s really down to whatever suits you.

This is my third and last quote, and one that I found amusing, especially when directed at myself. It’s funny how many quotes there are around on the theme of ageing – or perhaps it’s just that I particularly notice them nowadays. As for creaking, crunchy joints . . . I just pretend I’m deaf.

Here are my three nominees for today:

  1. Susan at Susan’s Personal Blog
  2. Lynne at Lynne’s Recipe Trails
  3. Amanda at Something to Ponder About

      I love crunchy foods, preferably with lots of nuts in them! 🙂 I’m glad you’d like to do the challenge again, Lynne. You could always leave it a week or two so it’s not right on top of the last one. Whenever you do it, I’ll be sure to come over and have a read. 🙂

    Crunchy, exactly! Especially my knees, oh goodness….

    • milliethom says:

      It’s amazing how common crunchy knees are, even in relatively young people. I suppose it’s because knees have such a hard job to do, and have to support most of our body weight. It’s also amazing how many older people end up having knee replacement ops. I dread the thought! 🙂

  6. Antonia says:

      Hi Ashley! Long time, no see, as they say. Are you back on your blog now? If so, does that mean you’ve finished your book? Sorry for all the questions – it’s just that I haven’t heard from you for a while. Your new gravatar image threw me a bit, too (and new blog title?). Your new hairdo looks great! I’m not blogging much at the moment . . . trying to get on with Book 3. I just pop back every now and then to say ‘hello’.
      I’ll spend a couple of days now visiting people’s blogs, so I’ll hop over to yours asap. 🙂
