I was recently given a Wonderful Team Member Readership Award from a fellow blogger, Purple Dreamer. PD :) I met through a 'blogging for well being' challenge and has been a source of smiles, humour, great quotes and above all inspiration since we shared writing.
I now need to send this pic and award to other bloggers, answer questions, put pic on my side bar.....hang on, this is all a little bit technical for me so I will stick with the easy bit!!
Purple Dreamer, Thank You. xxxx
1. Why do you blog?
I first started blogging for a combination of reasons. I was in the early stages of recovery from Anorexia and came across blogging on the film 'Julie & Julia' alongside reading a blog from a wonderful young Australian Lady in recovery who I still have virtual contact with to this day.
Originally it was a bit of fun, a way of logging my progress and putting down my thoughts. My blog has evolved along with me. It has grown with me. I had problems when recovered as what to do with it now?? What do I write about when I'm well.....thanks to the blogging challenges I have been given inspiration, a platform to hopefully give others hope and a voice.
2) If you were trapped on a desert island, what book, DVD, food, cartoon character, and childhood game would you bring?
Ooh, my favourite book would have to be 'How to be a woman,' by Caitlin Moran. Although I do prefer the audio version read by herself. I love the bit when she spills red wine on a cream carpet and shouts 'F**k very loudly. If you haven't read it, try it. Hilarious.
DVD would have to be 'Love Actually,' the marmite of Xmas movies. I want bye bye baby played at my funeral :) I would watch it whilst eating cheesy nachos and drinking toffee apple cider.
I would bring Mr Tickle with me and have great fun whilst playing with a hoola hoop. I was going to choose roller skates but they would seriously suck on sand!!!
3) Share a funny joke or one-liner.
When I was a kid I used to pray for a new bike. I then realised the Lord didn't work that way so instead I stole one and asked for forgiveness.
4) What is your favourite thing about yourself?
If its a physical thing it would be my eyes. A personal attribute would be to try and see the good in everyone.
5) What one word best describes you?
6) If you could have a lifetime supply of any candy/candy bar, what would it be?
Without a shadow of a doubt, Ferrero Rocher. They have to be eaten in a particular way, nibble the nuts, separate the wafer, lick the chocolate and savour the nut in the middle. Lush.
7) What fictional character do you relate to most?
Ana from 50 shades of Grey ;) I wish.......
8) If you were to write the story of your life, what would you call it?
Tell me I can't, I will.
