Firstly, and I'm embarrassed to say quite a while ago, I received this award from Alina over at The Purple Caravan :
and then a short while ago I received this one from Barbara over at Moore Whimsies :
Alina's version of this award stated that I had to share nine things about myself whilst Barbara's required seven, so I'm cheating a little and giving you the nine and hope Barbara won't mind sharing as I think going on with sixteen things about myself is a tad self-indulgent. Here goes:
I say a mental 'thank you' to my supermarket trolley when I take it back to the 'pound'. Don't ask why, I'm just a very polite (eccentric) person I guess.
I love time travel stories.
Quentin Crisp and Atticus Finch are two people who have most shaped my philosophy on life.
I don't like walking through long grass.
I went up the aisle to 'The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba' because when I was small and stayed with my grandparents I would dress up in their old net curtains and my granddad would laugh and say 'Oh look, here comes the Queen of Sheba'. Draped in net and lace, I couldn't have walked up the aisle to anything else.
I still have my Barbie doll from 1967 and think she was the best Christmas present I ever received.
I would choose a good bonfire-cooked jacket potato with lashings of butter as my last meal.
And lastly, I think my epitaph is likely to read 'She meant well'.
Thank you ladies for bestowing these awards on me.
Now, the other rule is that I'm supposed to pass this award on to 15/9 other blogs, and I have to admit I have difficulty in fulfilling this part of the agreement. Every single blog I follow is deserving, in my opinion, of these awards and I cannot choose. Also, I know that many of you no longer accept awards. With these things in mind, I am going to say that anyone who reads my blog and that knows I am a follower of theirs is invited to accept this award, because you all deserve it.
Thanks for dropping by.
