I am an inherently lazy person, who for reasons that lay beyond my comprehension, seems to work hard? For instance I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by a really great storyteller http://themercenaryresearcher.wordpress.com/ and I have been sitting on it for a while, then I was nominated again by this great photographer I have found http://patriciaddrury.com/, I mean on WordPress, not found at the back of my sock draw or anything like that.
This reminded me that I have been nominated twice before and haven’t done anything about it. See the lazy bit now? As a result I have decided to respond to all three. See where the hard work bit comes in? So thanks Patricia and my little librarian friend and I’ll do them in reverse order.
The Lovely Blog Award.
7 Random things about me.
1/ I don’t like Gnocchi, I will eat anything, really! But not that.
2/ I don’t like anyone to touch my toes. When I was kid my sisters used to hold me down while my mum cut my toenails.
3/ I’ve lived in a lot of places, too many to mention.
4/ I once dreamt that I was reading and I needed to sleep so I woke myself up looking for my bookmark.
5/ When I was a kid I was frightened of the
Red Indian Native American that lived in our airing cupboard.
6/ I wrote my first short story when I was forty-five, it was published straight away and it’s been downhill since then
7/ I wish my guitars were not the most important things in my life and so does my wife ;-)I was joking about the guitar thing, (just in case you-know-who reads this)
My nominations for this award are as follows. As I have two of these to do then I shall most likely fit everyone in at some stage, except http://bluefishway.wordpress.com/ as he is Blog Award Free Zone
