Kreativ Blogger Award

Would you believe I've been nominated for this? You should, kind is the lovely Angela who's blog you should visit here not only because she has a Visual Dare just waiting to be entered!

Update - It would appear I've been doubly-lucky, having been nominated before that by the wonderful Ruth also, whose blog you should also see here

Another Update - Well call me shocked, I've been nominated again, this time by the quirky (in a loveable way) Meg who has a fabuloso blog to venture onto here!

The Rules:
1. Thank & link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the ten questions.
3. Share ten random facts/thoughts about yourself.
4. Nominate seven worthy blogs for the Kreative Blogger Award.

The Questions:
1. What's your favorite song?
Keane - Somewhere only we know. I just love the lyrics and I've always wanted to have another world hidden away where only myself and another could go.

2. What's your favorite dessert?
I don't want to be predictable and say chocolate because chocolate's food, not just dessert ;) I'd say a summer fruit cheesecake . . . the fruits are a little redemptive!

3. What ticks you off?
Thoughtlessness - I can't stand someone who doesn't consider other people's feelings when they act.

4. What do you do when you're upset?
Write - often it creates some of my most moving pieces.

5. Which is your favorite pet?

It'd be a dog because they're so loyal and keep your lap warm when there's not a laptop on it. BUT if we're talking ANY pet, I'd say Pegasus - have a bit of an obsession with that flying cutie.

6. Which do you prefer: black or white?
White - it's a lot easier to add colour to.

7. What is your biggest fear?
Losing the people who mean the world to me.

8. What is your attitude mostly?
Unsure - it's usually unsure actually. I hate that.

9. What is perfection?
A completely selfless act. And love recognized between two people.

10. What is your guilty pleasure?
A big mug of hot chocolate and a blanket. Tv or a book would be a nice addition.

The Random Facts:

1. I hate moving house, I've already lived in 10 houses that I can remember and starting all over again isn't easy.

2. I'm half Indian, half Iranian and I live in England but ask me where my home is and I blank out.

3. I have the strange somewhat obsessive habit of covering all my books with clear plastic.

4. I'm afraid I'll spend so much time writing and I'll never find it good enough to show anyone or to try and get published.

5. My hair's so thick that when I leave it in a ponytail for too long, I get a headache. Such a pain!

6. I say 'bless you' to everyone, even strangers on the bus.

7. I'm not good at receiving compliments because I never feel like I deserve them.

8. I shattered my hand once when someone pushed me into a door. It wasn't particularly exciting but I didn't have to do gym for a few weeks so it was cool.

9. I'm obsessed with The Mentalist, CSI:NY, Bones and Castle - silly murderers always getting caught!

10. I wanted to be a singer when I was younger but the severe stage-fright didn't exactly help. Can you imagine a mute singer?

Let's stray from me now and see some other wonderful bloggers then!

I never thought I would but I joined Twitter recently and am very glad that I did - I had no idea there was so much talent just a few key strokes away and so many friends to find! I hope you check out their blogs and follow - 

1. Susi/ @SJIHolliday /

2. Miranda / @PurpleQueenNL / [blog?]
3. Laura / @LauraHuntley / [blog?]
4. Tim / @timkanebooks /
5. Laura / @L_Meyer /
6. Sara / @saraleggz /
7. Craig / @CraigWFSmith /

And now, I bid you adieu!


  1. Love your Pegasus obsession, mine is dragons!
    I would always deflect compliments with a dismissive reply, but I've learned to be gracious...not easy when you wonder why someone's complimenting you!
    And I love settling down with a good hot chocolate, but it does have to be topped with whipped cream and a Flake!

    1. We all need an obsession - fictional ones are best, I think!
      I really must work on compliments and sadly, flakes never last long in our house. Shame.

  2. I don't have a blog! sorry! Not got that far yet, and I am sort of shying away from it! And sweetie - Home is where the heart is! Wherever you are, is where your home is! I have moved 34 times in my life, so I relate to that feeling - I've lived here in Holland longer than I have lived anywhere in my life, and I have lived in two houses here, 5 years a piece, which is longer than I lived anywhere after the age of 9!! (presently 43) One day I will write my life story, in the meantime there is so much other stuff to write about! ( ; >

  3. I nominated you over the weekend too but forgot to post it on twitter!! And I wanted to nominate Miranda but she doesn't have a blog!! Anyway, glad Angela did right by you!! Cheers!!

    1. Thank you, I've linked back to your blog above! :)

  4. Love how you pick Pegasus! You have hair that thick too?? Have to use two elastics to hold it up. And I hear you about the stage fright... I could only sing in the car when I thought no one could here me. :)


I'd love to know your thoughts on this, so do share.
