Thank you so much to the lovely Claire at Art and Soul for nominating me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Her blog is a cracker, do visit it.
I have taken so ridiculously long to respond that Claire has probably forgotten she nominated me in the first place! I’m sorry Claire, I think I should start an award for the slow and distractible among us. It wouldn’t be very good.
So until I do I’ll focus on the acceptance rules for this one:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog
2. Copy the award badge and display it in your award post
3. Answer the questions the blogger who nominated you asked
4. Nominate other bloggers and set them new questions to answer (it’s supposed to be 10 bloggers and 10 questions, hmmm)
Claire’s Questions, My Answers
When was the last time you wrote something with pen and paper? What was it?
I’m a list fanatic so I write daily with pen and paper on anything I can get my hands on…envelopes, post-it notes, packaging boxes. You name it, I’ll make a list on it!
Aside from lists, thank you notes and birthday cards, I last wrote something substantial on pen and paper about a month ago. It was a letter to a friend. It was deep, meaningful, supportive stuff (!) that I thought would be nicer to receive as a letter. Of course, being a child of modern times I wrote it first on the computer until I was happy with it then copied it out onto paper!
Have you read a book more than once? What was it?
Ooo so many. I can’t even begin to recount them. I have a few favourites that I turn to though if I need a bit of familiarity and comfort. One of these is 84 Charing Cross Road. My version includes The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street which, in my opinion, makes the book complete.
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I think for me it’s all about the writing. My blog isn’t especially creative but this is definitely my creative outlet. I enjoy dreaming up topics (in the shower or the car normally!). I then have a lot of fun over a few days thinking of an angle for that idea/topic. Finally I get to see where the words take it. I like that I’m storing memories in this way as well.
What’s the funniest video you’ve ever seen on the internet? If you can remember and find it, please include the link!
I very rarely watch videos on the internet. I do recall seeing and laughing at The Green Party’s election campaign video where they parodied the other party leaders.
Hmm, but most of my current youtube watching is of Hovercrafts. Lots of Hovercrafts. Oh and the odd crane. Sadly, unless there are any two year olds reading this, I don’t think these are exciting enough to warrant a link here!
