Tell me about yourself...
So here I am playing blogging catch up, when I suddenly realise that I have been nominated for two awards by the gorgeous Janine, over at Reflections From A Redhead
It seems that there are rules to be followed both when accepting the award and then when nominating and sharing the award with other bloggers.
Rules for the 'Tell me About Yourself' Award:
Share 7 random facts about yourself.
Share the award with 15 other bloggers.
The Rules for the 7 Link Challenge:
Provide 7 links for the provided categories.
Nominate 5 bloggers.
As per some of my previous posts you will know that I hate awards like this. Not because I am ungrateful and not because I don't know of 100's of other worthy recipients out there in the blogosphere, but simply because it is so hard to choose who to nominate - and I always worry about offending those who I forget to mention. So for the purpose of this award, I will nominate the people who have written the most recent 5 posts of the blogs I read on a regular basis.
And so to the challenge:
7 random facts about me -
I have just finished reading 'The Imperfectionists' by Tom Rachman. For any of you interested in how the lives of several strangers inter-weave with each other behind the doors of an international newspaper, this is the book for you.
I have recently had a fringe cut into my hair and now worry that I look as though someone has simply upturned a bowl on my head and cut around it with blunt scissors.
My guilty pleasure on the TV is 'Real Housewives of Orange County' - Sorry. I have nothing more to say about that.
I have two pebbles that I have kept since the first holiday Hubby and I ever spent together in Cornwall. One is shaped like a heart and the other like a glass of guinness. Hubby found them and presented them to me whilst we were walking on a beach one day. I often wonder whether other people 'see' the same shapes as I do when I look at them.
I love to travel, yet am always pleased to return home again.
Having recently completed a frugal February challenge, I learned a lot about how I spend my money and the elements of my life that were un-necessarily wasteful. I am now committed to the motto 'reduce, re-use, recycle' in every element of my life. I feel more fulfilled already, as I no longer struggle with my conscience.
I truly believe that if life throws you lemons, you have to get on and make lemonade, because bubbles make everything better :-)
