Well, I can’t quite believe I’ve been given a new award! How surprising is that considering that I’m not posting as usual recently. But many thanks to FayeLucinda over here for sticking with me and understanding the chaos right now. I’ll be back to more regular postings in just a few weeks. In the meantime, you seriously need to check out her blog. She does books, fashion, art, travel, and just so many subjects all in one place. It’s well worth a look.
To fulfill the requirements of the award, here are my 7 facts:
1. I am a bookworm and I think the e-reader is THE BEST invention ever!
2. I very much enjoy people a bit older than me. I really enjoy hearing stories about where they’ve been and what they’ve done and seen.
3. I love movies with Colin Firth. He is tops!
5. I am sick of moving. I am a homebody and like to stay in one place.
6. I love snow. (Good thing with my recent relocation!)
4. I hope to live in Canada one day. (I just don’t want to have to move to do it!)
7. The two best trips of my life so far were Disney World in 2011 and London/Paris in 2013.

Well, a HUGE thank you to
Lydia Devadason – An Idiot’s Guide to Parenting, found here, for nominating me for my first ever award, the Liebster Award! I am humbled in her greatness, but absolutely appreciate the vote of confidence! I am VERY NEW to blogging and as such very new to Lydia’s blog (and any other blog for that matter). But Lydia takes a bad day and finds a way to make it into a plus for everyone else. I especially enjoy her ongoing parenting dictionary!
In acceptance of this award, I have to answer the following questions:
What inspired you to start a blog? I was advised by the powers-at-be in my writing club to begin a blog. Having never blogged before or considered this, it has been a really big learning curve! I learn something new every time I’m on here!
Do any of your close ‘real’ friends blog? No
Have you had any strange, embarrassing or frightening blogging experiences? Not as of yet, but give me time, I’ve only been on here a few weeks now.
If eating at a restaurant, what would be your favourite meal – with or without dessert? I have very simple tastes. I’m not big on pomp and circumstance with food. It’s just a means to keep myself going. So fast and easy is the name of the game with my meals.
If money was no option, what would be your perfect holiday destination? I love Canada. It’s where I head every time I get the chance. But……if money were not an object and time and responsibility were not issues, then I would have to say underwater diving into some of the world’s beautiful caves to take pictures would be the ultimate.
If money was no option, what would be your perfect evening’s entertainment? Actually, again, nothing hugely outrageous, but my husband, son, and I currently find magic shows to be a great evening’s entertainment. Also very much enjoy humourous theatre (i.e. We just saw STOMP in London and very much enjoyed that!)
What’s your favourite word? What a question! How could you ever pick just one? Could you name your favourite cloud in the sky or colour of the rainbow? A few words that I’m currently enamoured of are: hence, medieval, and ghastly.
What quality do you think friends appreciate most in you? Probably people appreciate that I always am responsible to do what I say that I will.
What personality characteristic do you find the most off-putting or irritating in others? Ugh, read my blog, “A Bug’s Life,” where I address this very topic….people who don’t know when to go away. Or in another of my writings, I address the lack of manners in the face of technology. How about pet peeve instead? People who do not spell correctly and people that do not use apostrophes correctly.
How would you like to be remembered by those you care about? I would like to be remembered as someone that made a difference to people, someone that added something unique though they were behind-the-scenes in most cases, but someone who really had a different way of approaching things that was beneficial to all involved. It would be nice to remembered for my love of taking pictures or writing, but on the whole, I’m content if they just know I cared very much and made a difference.
What is your favourite holiday destination? Think I already answered this one above…Canada, but also very much like London, and a fan of WDW in Florida.
