kiwifruit anyone??

 so what's in a name then?
Well, it is pretty darn important to most of us, most of the time.
It is what we are all known by, to our families, friends, lovers, colleagues, fellow bloggers...
we all have one, or more... most of us are given our names at birth or very soon after. Some of us like our names, and some of us don't, and others are quite indifferent. Some of us change our names.
But as bloggers we all get to choose our name, for better or for worse, in the heat of the moment, or after much deliberation.
Check out Dawn's blog,  in particular, this post. Link in and tell us where your blog name came from, and how you came to be, this all makes for a very good read indeed!
So kiwifruit-shiree, where did that come from?? and you know what, I really cannot recall exactly. I know that I had signed up for the Stitcher's Angel swap that Helen Stubbings had organised, and it seemed reasonable to follow with a blog. Blogs were kinda taking over, and remember this was before Facebook and Twitter and any of the other social medias that we have today.
Kiwifruit is the national fruit of NZ, well sort of.. and it just come together from there... I think that is the way it happened. Nothing too dramatic, or earth shattering or startling even, but there it is, and here I am

Kiwifruit...a little exotic and delicious? Just like our blogging friend Shiree? It has been fun reading the stories hasn't it?

It's been lots of fun hearing everyone's 'history'.
