I’d Like to Thank the Academy….

So I received a rather nice shout out from blogger ihaveabadsenseofhumour the other day nominating me for The Black Cat Blue Sea Award. Now I really have no idea what this is but I am taking it as a compliment and that the intention is to nominate fellow bloggers who’s work you enjoy reading, so thank you for the nomination!

There are of course rules to follow for this award, which are:


The questions I was asked, and answers, are:

1. What is your biggest fear?

Losing my marbles. The idea of developing some form of dementia when I’m older and not being myself anymore or being able to communicate with the people I love terrifies me. It’s a big part of why I run, because exercise and staying healthy staves this off! 

2. What do you love the most about yourself?

I think probably the number of times I’ve picked myself up and got on with things when life hasn’t been going the way I would like. I’m pretty resilient. Although that’s not an invitation to the Gods of fate to start chucking nonsense about! 

3. Have you ever been in love?

Yes, absolutely. In lots of different ways!   

My 7 nominees for this award are:

My questions for you are:

  1. What made you start writing a blog in the first place?
  2. Where is your happy place?
  3. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?


UPDATE! One of the bloggers I nominated has filled me in that this awards is for ‘bloggers who strive to write for everybody and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it doesn’t mean that they have hundreds of followers and likes’. This is really lovely and makes me appreciate the nomination even more, thank you!
