Take a Pic. Tagged.

I have been tagged by Donna and my instructions are to put the 6th photo, in the 6th file, on my computer, onto my blog and explain it.
Well this was a bit scary as it could of been a picture of me!!! but it isn't. The 6th photo in the 6th file is one of daughter Skye on holiday last year at Camber Sands. It was a scooter rally and one of the bands were playing all the songs from Quadrophenia. All evening Skye was waiting for the song Bell Boy but fell asleep just as the song before was finishing. She was so cross when she woke up with me as well as missing the song.

I also have been given this lovely award from Paula

I will sort out who I am going to tag and pass the award onto shortly.
