" Harper Seven" !!

No I am not telling you the time, or telling you the name of a new toilet cleaner, this is the name Victoria and David Beckham have chosen for their long awaited for Daughter. After a lot of thought I have decided to keep up with the trend and change my name by deed poll to, Debbie Eight, ( all the pies )!! Has a ring to it don't you think?

Joking aside, I actually quite like, "Harper" but it sounds more like a boys name to me. When all said and done though, it is entirely up to them what they call their new Daughter, all power to them for being unique! It makes me wonder what they would call a Narrow boat?

That got me to thinking, I heard someone passing a comment the other day that the name was odd, my Mum has told me I am odd at times, and to be fair she could be right!, but what is "odd"? To me "odd" is someone talking to a bacon sandwich, but then would that person think we were odd because we don't converse with our lunch? Is it being odd, or just being unique? not doing the same as everyone else, being different, which I think can be a breath of fresh air.On looking up "odd" in one of the many dictionary's on line, one of the definitions was," Beyond or deviating from the usual or expected", so yes Mum you are right I am odd! I am now off to discuss the weather with my cheese on toast!!

As this is a boaty blog, I will just add that I have had confirmation of my Passage through to Liverpool in September for the Tall ships and Royal Naval visit, I am really looking forward to it. A two week stay in the Salt house Dock will make a nice change! I don't very often visit Liverpool so it will be nice to see what's happening there, oh and of course to party too! So if your in the vicinity at the time call and say hello, you may even get a cuppa!! I won't make you talk to your biscuit honest!

Odd and proud!

Hi Debbie. I was also a little surprized at the name. There have been differing stories on why they chose Harper. One said the boy's chose it and another said that it was because Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. The Seven is inspired by the shirt number he wore, but also other special reasons the wonders of the world and the colours of the rainbow. In away it is kind of romantic.

it is nice when people think outside of the box.
