One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you, Eby.  It is always a pleasure to interact with her.  Do read her blog, I can’t imagine that anyone would be disappointed with a visit to her site.

Okay, so the rules of this award:

*Thank the person/people who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
– yes, done that
*List the rules and display the award.
– check!
*Add 7 facts about yourself.
– this will come next
*Nominate other bloggers.

*Let them know they have been nominated.
– If you’re reading this and you are one of my blog friends, then you have been nominated!

Okay, so seven facts about me.  Seven facts I have yet to reveal…

  1. I currently live 1.1 miles from the building in which I was born.  Not a hospital, I will add – my mother gave birth to me at home
  2. My favourite book is ‘The Collector’ by John Fowles
  3. For a short while at school, I had lessons learning to play the cornet
  4. Although I can’t swim, I have been white water rafting in Austria
  5. If I encounter a spider, I usually speak to them.  The big spiders are all female and speaking nicely to them calms them down – or so I find.  Although, it should be said that British spiders are moderately sized compared to those in other countries.
  6. My favourite television programme is not what you would call high brow viewing being as it is The Professionals
  7. When I leave the house I often walk back up the path two or three times to double check that I have locked the front door.  I suffer a little obsessive compulsive disorder but won’t fight it if it means that the house is always locked up.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed those little facts about me.
