N is for …

… nicknames.
I don’t recall when G first called me Nic Noodle. Or Noodle Doodle.  Or Winkle. .Or Doris.
Or more recently, and said with great affection I assure you, Hippopotowhale (I’ll explain that one another time!).  I always thought nicknames were taunting and unkind having spent years as a child being called knickers (thank goodness that one stayed in the primary school playground!). It’s entirely different when a loved one chooses a name for you and there are always smiles and laughter when G creates or uses a new one.

Do you have any nicknames?
(you only have to share the smile cracking ones)

    Nice – bit like your L is for lovely post – I use it to describe a certain someone far too much. This alphabet series has made me realise how little control of the English language I have these days!

    This one is hard.

    I have a few friends that call me Kick Arse, although not for bad reasons, but another friend has the same name and she was nicknamed fluffy, they wanted to differentiate, and at the time I did martial arts! I suppose these days my nickname is Fiona Mayhem. I like your nicknames better.

    My N will have to befor new. I have been trying a lot of new recipes, and cooking techniques. I am also looking for pastures new, having decided to quit my job.

      so you’re the friend to have close to hand when walking down dark alleys {wink}.
      All the best with the new career direction

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
