I Accept...

 ...and I would like to thank Linda 'Eternal Optimist' MacPherson for giving me this award. It's always a pleasure to read what Linda writes, whether on Facebook or her blog, Linda's Life - it always brings a smile to my face- and that's no easy task!
There are rules to this award.
1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.
2. Answer the 10 survey questions
3. Pass the award along to other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you have chosen to let them know about the award

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?
I'm happy to be known for my blogging crimes.
2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
I don't really have an inner stubborn side as such, I'm quite a compromising person; although I will never back down if I know someone is in the wrong (see Gay but not Happy) or if there is an injustice.
3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
The last time I looked, I didn't like what I had seen. so I haven't looked at my reflection properly in a mirror for about three years!
4. Favourite summer drink?
Lemon granita as it reminds me of holidaying in Naples.
5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
I get creative, either make something or mess around on the computer; pet my cats or exercise.
6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life?
There isn't really one thing I would like to accomplish apart from to be happy, perhaps even content in life. I would like to take a trip to Japan and visit Tokyo.
7.When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
I enrolled as a very good pupil, learned to be a clown and then passed as a fully fledged truant!
8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
I find this very difficult to do; there are so many moments, some are more poignant than others, but all are significant enough for me to remember.
9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
I don't think we really share our true selves often to the outside world, real or virtual. I'm comfortable blogging stuff when I forget the fact that people could be reading! Sometimes I do express personal thoughts, but I tend to use song lyrics, pictures or quotes that kind of sum up the feeling, thought or experience, that way it's a bit more interesting to who sees the post.
10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
I'm such a bad reader- I start books, then get distracted and do other things, and this is even with books of short stories! Phone calls can be a nuisance, but I hardly get many calls so I would choose 'talk on the phone', just so that I don't appear to be too reclusive and anti-social!

I am still looking for a fantastic Blogger, to pass this award on to.
