DF has “tagged” me. It’s been many many years since I ran around the school playground getting “tagged” but it seems there is an grown-up, on-line version of playing tag (or “tips” if you are in Australia). Apparently it’s called “Mrs Sparkly’s Ten Commandments”
I have to answer some questions and then tag another blogger.
The 10 Questions
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
A mildly entertaining, loyal, optimistic, chocolate loving dreamer.
2. What keeps you up at night?
The neighbour’s dog barking. Inspiration for blogging posts which strike just as I’m about to fall asleep. Needing to go to the loo.
3. Whom would you like to be?
Someone with oodles of cash ummmm Nicole Kidman? No scratch that I want to be George Clooney’s latest girlfriend.
4. What are you wearing now?
Thank God I’m doing this in the afternoon after I’ve actually been out. Tan trousers and hot pink peasanty type shirt which still has a few sneaky specks of tissues stuck to it because I forgot to go through the pockets before I did the wash.
5. What scares you?
Ill health mine or my families. My husband (and my blog readers) have banned me from googling my symptoms any more so hopefully the hypochondria will ease – unless of course I’m REALLY SICK and we won’t know that until I collapse in a heap. Have I told you all about my lung? Oh yes I did.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
Best – engaging with people from around the world and getting to write my own stuff every day. Worst – finding the time to fit it in and do justice to each and every post.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
Perfecting Motherhood stumbled across it through the WordPress photo of the week challenge this morning but got caught up in one of Imperfect Mum’s personal stories – she’s got a lot on her plate at the moment as her husband has had a serious accident.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I would be thinner and richer. (OK that’s two but really is anyone marking this?)
9. Slankets, yes or no?
I have absolutely no idea what a slanket is … someone??? Is this an American thing?
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
DF blogs at wuppenif.com She is a 42 year old city slicker who packed up her family to move to the country. Her blog has lovely snowy pictures and coyotes keep her awake at night!!! Coyotes DF? Are you in the middle of the wild, wild west? Just how rural did you go? DF is a very kind person who works in IT and when I posed questions on my blog about trying to decide on technical stuff she very kindly took the time to email me (a stranger) with helpful suggestions and then answered my confused questions.
Tag, you’re it!
Gotta tag another blogger – I hate doing this – I love all of you and want to recognise each of you but I’m going with Diana Douglas because Diana’s written a lovely post about her family – her mother sounds like a champion! Now Diana your mission (if you chose to accept) is to repeat the tagging process.
