Q's and Boo's Great Escape!

Postcards from the Edge...

No! This is not Boo & QR!

Lovely to exchange my army boots for sandals!

Love a bit of rock exploring...

Here we are in Spain- staying in my mom's apartment having made "The Great Escape". QR really needed a break- some "kicking back" and "doing nothing" time (See her blog for more details). I'm trying (very I'm told!) to stay out of her face and behave myself- we'll see!
As for Boo- well I'm heading for a very stressful time in my work. I love my job- I manage a support service for 350 vulnerable elders- I have a staff team of 30 and the contract has just been given to a different company. We'll all get taken over to the new company but you can bet that there will be massive cost saving exercises and little if no autonomy. I'm hoping that it won't affect the service but I do feel responsible for the service users and staff.
So here I am in Spain charging up my batteries ready for the many steep climbs ahead.
Onwards and Upwards! (can't wait to get the puppy mid May I hope)

Someone remarked the other day that over the years I had been given a large number of nicknames and yes indeed they were right...

* Boo (not sure where it came from but might be cos I cry so easily at all things soppy!)
*My Boo (when she's being affectionate)
* Fin (derived from my hair cut)
*Finbar Wookie (combination of the above)
*The Hoff (when I drive my black sports car in my biker's jacket!!- my car's called Kit!)
*Doll Nicoletta (said in an Italian accent)
* Doll Pigeonie
*Brum Brum (cos of where I'm from and cos I ride a motorbike)
*Farty-pants (afraid very true observation)
*windy-miller (as above!!)
*Pyramid Tits! (that one was quite a while back!!)
*Nipples ( kinda rhymes with my surname actually)
*Gorjus (well at least someone had good taste and excellent eye sight!)
*Fluffy Butch (spose I am)
*Pig (from children's programme Pipkins and coming from Brummie land- and perhaps slightly due to being a windy miller!)
*Dirty Girty- (yep that's me!)
*Booo Booo Boooo Booooooooooo (usually when my bird wants something!!)
*Studly from Dudley (oh yes and very proud of it!)
* The stud (OK! You got me- I call myself that!)
*Donkey cock! (long story but was approached by a woman who asked if I fancied a fuck as I looked like I had a cock the size of a donkey!!)
*Supadyke (cos I saved a woman from drowning)

I love my nicknames- some more than others! So come on tell me what some of yours are and why?!! Share please do.......
