Mrs Carmichael is opinionated, quick to judge and occasionally impatient. She also changes her mind. She enjoys reading, the cinema, photography, travel, things that are designed well and synchronised swimming. Her dislikes include math, weakness, a tardy nature and chardonnay.

Mrs Carmichael has a number of very good friends and a few people who don’t like her as much as they should. On balance she quite likes herself, enjoys her own company and sometimes makes herself laugh.

      1. Private Prep…LOL! I had a High School English teacher by the same name as your blog who taught a creative writing class. When I started blogging, people asked why? I said I was inspired by a teacher in 12th grade(that and my children who give me an endless supply of writing material). Huh…small world!

  1. Hello.

    Right at the bottom of Settings-Discussion reached from the dashboard, there is a box for the comment prompt, where you can change “Leave a reply” to something more interesting. Everyone should.

      1. Uhm – I replied to the advice you got from another user – found this advice very helpful – about personalizing the comment-line .. So I wanted to thank that user for her advice, even if it was not meant for me.

        But you are a star for having such an amazing blog!

      1. It was the photo where you mentioned Australia off in the distance that gave it away! We’re practically related lol! Would you believe that last year, while we were on a river cruise in Germany, an American passenger simply could not believe that we hadn’t been to New Zealand, because she thought it was only a ferry ride across Sydney Harbour to get there! Ha!

  2. I tend to find that many bloggers out there hate math. I suppose this is natural thought. After all, we are writers and they say that those who are good in thinks like reading and writing are not as privy to math and sciences. Then again, who knows! Nice to meet you.

    1. Haha, now that happens to the best of us. I really hope you get to do something else good as I hope my daughter get to use her dance ability for something worthwhile in her life. Maybe she’ll write about it. Now there’s a thought.

  3. I think I would like mrscarmichael very much. Except for the sychronized swimming part! LOL. I feel the same as you do about all the other things and though I have some good friends, I have a number of people who don’t like me!! So funny and cute you are!

  4. Good morning Mrs Carmichael,

    “now it’s your turn” is certainly more welcoming than “leave a reply”…loved your choice of words.

    Thank you for the like on my blog. I enjoyed yours.

    Warmest regards,

  5. Mrs. Carmichael, I have a feeling that your sense of humour and I will get along very well. Great, funny, inspiring blog. Thanks for commenting and luring me here!

  6. I’m on your page, Mrs C, as far as the Chardonnay (ABC, that’s me) and maths go…but I give the swimming a miss. Thanks for liking my posts, and luring to your blog..love the new disign.

    1. Just sipping a NZ sauvignon blanc as I type, Suej so most topical. I need another diversion now the Olympics are well and truly over hence my change of Gravitar. I am thrilled with my new look and wish WP would close the theme so others cannot follow. Is that mean?

  7. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I thought it was time I came to see what you are up to. I think I may stay a while. Love your sense of fun (except for the syncho)
    Jude – loves maths as well as words and pictures πŸ™‚ sorry!

      1. LOL! And a great sense of humour too. I think we will get on quite well. πŸ˜‰

  8. I love your blog. It always makes me laugh. Because of this, and because someone was kind enough to nominate me I am passing forward the Very Inspiring Blogger award to you.

    Briefly here are the rules:
    1. Display the award in a blog post (you can grab the image from my blog)
    2. Thank the person who nominated you and include a pingback.
    3. Tell us 7 things about yourself
    4. Nominate 15 other blogs and link them on your site
    5. Let them know with a comment on their blog, and include instructions as to how to accept.

      1. Of course further digging reveals you’ve already had this particular award from another (several other) bloggers, though I think my picture is different. Your gracious acceptance is wonderful.

    1. soo tempted. I might pop in and ask to have a look because if I cannot do any of the postures I will end up the class clown and I’m trying to cut down on that behaviour.

    1. Thank you and arrrrrgh – i’m too scared (but it’s still in my to do bucket and only a couple of miles away. I am however in my track pants and in my mind already on a power walk.
      But here I am still sitting in front of my pc which is your fault πŸ™‚

  9. Would love to hear your take on Bikram – do try it even if only once! A post on Mrs Carmichael Does Bikram can only be wonderful. πŸ™‚ If you like, check out my very first blog piece “The meltdown of Hot Bikram” for a preview. It got me blogging. That’s how good it is! πŸ™‚

  10. So, you have a terribly funny and entertaining blog, you write cool and witty stuff. You interact with your readers but you hide your twits. I know it’s probably a modesty thing. But seriously, you need to be on twitter if you a) want to promote your amazingly cool work here. b) You’d have so much fun ‘interacting’ with the other twits. Come out and play!

  11. mrsc, did you make it to Bikram in the end? My younger daughter has been doing it now for a couple of years. She is passionate about it, is half the size she used to be, and can now bend over backwards so far she can put her head between her knees from behind. This could be you in the future. (I’ve exaggerated a little, she is not really half her original size, but she is very trim, taut and extremely terrific).

  12. Mrs C, LOVE your blog and LOVE your take on life… my kind of woman! Thanks for dropping by mine as in doing so you led me to yours… πŸ™‚

  13. Mrs. C, I tried Bikrim yoga and found it extremely difficult but my skinny girlfriend loves it. There is no entry level class so when you’re overweight some of the moves are darn near impossible. Since I’ve lost 30 pounds I’ve contemplated trying it again but there’s always something else that gets in the way.

  14. Mrs Carmichael, I love your witty sophistication and am popping back with the slightly dΓ©jΓ  vu feeling that I have left a similar comment already… but perhaps not. Anyway, delighted to catch up with your recent posts and I look forward to seeing more. Patsy

now it's your turn
