Both Older Mum and Mother Goutte have tagged me in a meme – My thanks to them both! I shall duly oblige but combine the two….I like to mix it up a bit!
From Mother Goutte I got the Reader Appreciation Award! Yay me! Mother Goutte has been a lovely supporter of my Wednesday Witter linky and I am very glad as it introduced me to her fabulous blog!
I have to answer some questions and then pick a few other
victims bloggers to partake!
So, the questions:
Purple. All shades of. The colour of royalty and always the colour that catches my eye….
The horse. Always wanted one – I used to stare at my bedroom walls as a child; not out of desperation but because they depicted show jumping scenes. I always hoped that on Christmas morning there would be a pony outside the front door with a big ribbon around its neck. Not likely in a small suburban semi, but one can dream….
I think they are magnificent. Beautiful, beautiful creatures. The theme from Black Beauty still makes me cry.
Favourite non-alcoholic drink
Tea. Lots of. Half a sugar, milk. Twinings.
Facebook or Twitter
Twitter. A year ago, I wasn’t even on Twitter. Now, it is my social life. I know, that makes me sound like a right saddo, but if you’re reading this then you are likely to be a blogger and probably understand. If you’re not, then yes, I am a right saddo.
Giving or getting presents
Always giving. I start Christmas shopping in the summer sales or before. I LOVE finding the right present for the right person. May I just say, that notonthehighstreet.com is my ultimate present-giving place.
Favourite day of the week
Friday. This is because somewhere in my living-in-the-past mind I am 20 years old, at uni and Friday night is Union night and three too many southern comforts.
I fluctuate…I think so long as it is white then it’s a winner. But I love wild flowers, meadow flowers – the ones classed as weeds but are just as beautiful as the evil plantage from Satan’s lair that are known as roses.
Writing poetry. I have leaked a few onto this blog, but I have written poems since I was a child. Usually when I was sad. It’s not something you readily admit to, but I compose them in my head throughout the day. Sometimes I get to a pad and pencil to write them down, otherwise they get lost. Probably not a bad thing…. Failing that it is blogging, cooking and Ben Fogle.
And finally this is how it works :
Now, the gorgeous Older Mum in a Muddle has given me a beautiful blogger award which is too kind of her! But warmly appreciated all the same!
The award stipulates that I nominate six other lovely bloggers and then share ten factual thingamys about myself.
Six nominees might be pushing it. but here are ten facts about me. Stay awake.
I was born a Maid of Kent, but now I am a Kentish Maid.
Up until the age of 8 I couldn’t put my hands in my pockets. OCD. Too many nibbly bits on the bottom. I still can’t rummage through my handbag without getting itchy.
I was sweet sixteen and never been kissed. (Might have made up for that….)
I passed my driving test on my sixth go. BFF was on her fifth. We both still have nightmares about having to re-take….
I have a certificate in stage-fighting. It has enhanced my CV no end….
I believe in love at first sight.
I nearly died once and almost killed a dear friend. I hit gravel on the central reservation of the M25, skidded across three lanes and rolled into a field. Please, wear your seat belts. They saved our lives.
I can play The Sound of Silence on the piano whilst standing on my head. (n.b. NOT tested for a few years….)
I studied Theology then went to Drama School. I was made for The Sound of Music. Which I auditioned for when I was 8 to play opposite Petula Clark. I got through to Round 2 then forgot to sing. Bummer.
I still believe that somewhere, there might be Father Christmas and unicorns.
You still here? Excellent! Well then, I hereby nominate the following bloggers for BOTH of these awards. They can take them, leave them or pick and choose. So accommodating…..
