Dawn has asked this question of us all and it is amazing all the different blog names and what their origins are.
Mine is rather simple. As a littly I used to refer to myself as “Janna” – or so Mum tells me. Apparently I used to tell her “No nawny Janna” when she scolded me.
Move forward about 25 years and a work colleague used to refer to many of the girls at work by both of the Christian names – me being Janice Mary. Of all of them, mine seemed to be the one that stuck and I started referring to myself by the shortened version of “Jannimary”. Long after I no longer worked there I still seem to call myself “Jannimary” if I’m talking to myself – hopefully not the first sign of madness. More along the lines of “Come on Jannimary, get a wriggle on”.
When I started my blog I had no idea what to call it, as it was to be about all parts of my life. I don’t do enough craft to include that in the title – it would be a bit presumptuous, so “Jannimary” it is.
