I have just been
tagged in the Kreativ Blogger Award by the wonderful Ruth Long Bullishink.
Check out her writing blog which is thought provoking and fabulous!!! Anyway as
with all tags, there are some rules which have to be followed as rules do.
These ones are fairly straightforward to follow, just tricky to complete . . .
1. Thank and link back to the person who
nominated you. (Easy peezy)
2. Answer 10 questions. (Gulp)
3. Share 10 random facts about yourself (Bigger
4. Bestow the Kreativ Blogger award on 7 fab
bloggers. (A gorgeous thing to do if they haven't already been awarded! But tricky in that there are loads more than 7 out there! please do not be offended if I have not chosen you.)
your favourite song?
Oh my gosh;
see what I mean by ‘gulp’! How can you choose 1 song???? I shall try and narrow
down a very long list of favourites into a top 5 in no particular order.
or With You by U2
Rain by Guns and Roses.
want to miss a Thing by Aerosmith (our wedding first dance song so it has to be
in here somewhere).
Look back In Anger by Oasis
Spotting sound track - yes it’s an album, not a song but it is the best album
and when I’m down, this never fails to cheer me up and I can’t select one.
your favourite dessert?
again ‘oh my gosh!’ There are just sooooo many desserts out there. How is a
girl to choose? So this dessert has to
be special. It has to be orgasmic. It has to be creamy. It has to be sweet but
not sickly sweet. And it has to be homemade . . . so I’m going for New York
Cheesecake. . . . I think!! And
tomorrow, it’ll be something entirely different!
ticks you off?
late! I hate being late anywhere and hate people being late. I get so agitated
by it. I can’t help it. I get my knickers in a twist over it and wish I didn’t
as at times there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it.
do you do when you’re upset?
on who has upset me I either cry or sulk with the odd bit of door banging
thrown in. A good walk along the beach or in the forest usually blows it all
is your favourite pet?
have one so this question is easy. Yay!! It is my bonkers cat Indi!
do you prefer: black or white?
I don’t own much white and my Hubby’s work shirts are white and a pain in the
backside to iron so definitely black just on that alone.
is your biggest fear?
I do a
have a phobia which I shall keep to myself thank you. Too scared to talk about
it. However, I would like my family to be safe when they're out and about. x
is your attitude mostly?
Things happen (or don’t happen) for a reason so you have to pick yourself up
and try again with an even bigger smile. Don’t get bogged down with ‘stuff’ as
it will make you miserable and being miserable is well, miserable.
ha ha. Seriously. . . . . It’s spending time with people that I love dearly
which I do every single day, at work and at home. And I'd have to say, a cat's purr is purrfection too. XXX
is your guilty pleasure?
butter and chocolate spread eaten
together with a teaspoon (from my American friend’s daughter). Yummy!
1. I absolutely hate the spine on books being
creased. My friends hate borrowing books from me because of this.
2. I never have and can’t see that I ever will
drink tea or coffee . . . Yuk!
3. I have moved house 14 times since
looking at all the flowers outside Kensington Palace after Diana’s death, I was
interviewed by Sky News. I still have the video tape.
was a vegetarian for 5 years. Then when I left school and was out and about
working and socialising, it went right out the window as the choice for a veggie
6. I decided not to waste a long weekend off
from work and buggered off to Edinburgh on me Jack Jones. It was awesome! The
B&B treated me like a long lost daughter feeding me up with an extra
special brekkie. I met people on the Ghost Tour and shared a few beers with
them and had my first Haggis! Yummy. Would love to go back with Hubby as it is
the most beautiful place.
7. I ate six Creme Eggs one after the other.
But I was pregnant and just couldn’t get enough chocolate. Needless to say, I
didn’t eat Creme Eggs for a few years after.
8. I am a Royalist.
9. I love any excuse to wear head boppers.
10. I only wear makeup when on a special night
out. The rest of the time, it’s just me and that’s how I like it.
Now to nominate 7
special writers/bloggers and who may have already been nominated by a previous
blogger/writer; I don’t know but can only apologise. But then again, why
shouldn’t you have 2! And if you haven’t been nominated, it’s about time. xxxx
My Magnificent 7 are:
Thank you for the
award Ruth Bullish. I shall try and live up to it by posting weekly on 5 Sentence Fiction http://lilliemcferrin.com
and by getting back to blogging! xxx
