I was catching up on Mary's
blog today and was touched to see she had given me an award, which made me remember another award given to me ages ago by Sonia
( on my birthday in fact!) and which I failed to accept-oh no! So thank you to Sonia for the Deborah award and to Mary for the Making smiles on faces award. This is Deborah's lovely blog here.
For the smile award I have to share five things about myself.
1. I thought I couldn't cook, then I could, then I couldn't again and resorted to going to McDonald's. (this happend last night-I had a complete cooking disaster (three things burnt-thick black smoke burnt) -which was most disappointing as last weekend I had nothing but cooking success.
2.When I went to McDonald's (which is pretty rare) I kept my pajama top on and wore an odd selection of other clothes-I was hungry and wanted the 'fast' aspect of fast food. It is a drive-in and it was dark. The girl who takes the orders was also the one who takes the money-I was impressed by her multi-tasking and her polite manner.
3. Every weekend recently, there has been a sunlight window in which to take photos. It is short lived and so, whatever I am doing, I stop, whip out the camera and photograph whatever I need to that week.
4. My Chinese star sign is the snake.
5. My zodiac sign is Libra and I have Virgo rising. I have endless discussions about these things with my friend Clare. It is all fascinating!
I would like to pass these awards on to lots of people but have chosen three of them today-I am usually a bit reticent to pass them on as I worry about leaving people out but I will be bold! I have chosen people I have not passed awards on to before. ( I think)
I will pass the smile award to Amy of Sweet Sweet Life
as she makes me smile almost every day with her amazing showcasing of great artists. Thanks Amy!
I will pass the Deborah award to Lynne
and to Janine
-thanks for being my friends!
Thanks to all my friends-I love this world we share!
In other news (that phrase always pops into my head when I am writing the blog-it makes me smile somehow-as if my life is so terribly interesting!), I watched 'New Moon' this week (loved it-I am an overgrown, middle aged teenage girl! Slightly selfish Bella appears a little less selfish in the film) , a film about Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst where it appeared she had just been dropped off in 17th Century France from a shopping mall somewhere in America and given the right costumes-most strange film-I quite enjoyed it though. Today I watched 'Coco Before Chanel' which was lovely-most interesting and beautiful.
