The Golden Bloggerz Award

I’ve been nominated by the lovely Rachel from Jasperden Health for above award. Well, I was actually nominated quite a while back but the procrastinator in me has excelled yet again! See How To Waste A Day except I could rename it How To Waste Months!

Please check out her blog. She gives fantastic advice on all things health related and is also great at supporting other people’s blogs as well as my own.

3 Things About Me.

1. I have a Masters degree but no common sense. I used to think the washer fluid for windscreens was filled up when it rained. I tried on too many occasions to retrieve trapped bread from a toaster with a metal knife. I thought the drawer labelled ‘Fast Freeze’ froze faster than any other part of the freezer. Think about it.

2. I’m scared of car washes. I thank the lord for the invention of mobile valet companies. I can’t get my head around the fact that the car isn’t moving. All logic escapes me, but then I don’t possess a lot of that. See number one. The fear shouts down the logic and I’m convinced those damn brushes are toying with me.

3. I’ve been told I have the teeth of a 6’4” male. Not what I wanted to hear from my dentist (he’s no longer my dentist). I don’t know where he was going with this information or what he wanted me to do with it. But I’m a 5’2” female and I’m stuck with them. The whole giant lot of them.

My Answers

1. If a film was going to be made about your life, who would you want to play you?

I was once told, when I was a lot younger, that I had a look of Catherine Zeta Jones. I was told this by an elderly lady who, in hindsight, probably had failing vision! So, I think, given how well she does manic and disheveled, which is a prerequisite if you were to play me, I’ll choose Helena Bonham Carter.

2. Who is your favourite musician or group?

Easy. Billy Joel. I wrote about this in My Piano Man Obsession so I won’t repeat myself and bore you further.

3. Coast or the country?

Easy again. Coast. I live by the coast, although the countryside is also on my doorstep. However, whenever I have found myself far from the sea (Carlisle, Grenoble) for any period of time, I’ve hated it. I felt claustrophobic, hemmed in, like I couldn’t breathe. Even in Edinburgh, which you maybe don’t associate with the sea, it only takes a quick jaunt up Arthur’s Seat (Who am I kidding?! Even as a student, I needed an oxygen mask when I reached the top) to be able to see the Firth of Forth stretched out in front of you, en route to the North Sea. I can easily take a trip into the beautiful Lake District, marvel at the rising peaks and placid lakes, but I’m always relieved when I’m back on the coast.

4. Early bird or night owl?

I’m an early bird because I can’t be a night owl. I’m useless at staying up late. I’d happily be in bed every night by 7pm if it wasn’t so frowned upon. Pre-kids, I could sleep in a bit but that skill has long since vanished. I should use the time wisely when I wake before everyone else to be productive. I play Candy Crush and drink tea. Defends on your definition of productive I suppose.

5. If you believe in God what would you ask him?

I don’t. And the reason I don’t is because of all the suffering, both personal and global, that I’ve witnessed. So if God did exist, I’d ask him what the bloody hell he was playing at!
