Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

7 interesting things about myself….

Hmmm? wrote the above then sat here for nearly 10 mins…. Whats interesting? Ok here goes….  🙂

1) I love Japanese anime, collect Ghibli and Manga films and my favorite directors are Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata.

2) I can’t swim and have a huge fear of open water, rivers, lakes, ponds, the sea, swimming pools! But I love the beach (at low tide or when its out! ).

3) I love music and always have it either playing or am humming or singing it. I was gutted when I had to sell my cd collection when we moved to Lincoln ( 2000 cd s ). Now my songs are digital with only about 200 cd s.

4) I was born in London but the only time you hear my London accent is when I’m relaxed talking to my children or I’m swearing. I always say the F word with an A in it!

5) I love accents. Not so much different British accents, I like foreign ones and Texan, Russian, Tennessee and Norwegian are among my favs, oh and an Irish accent!!  Strange but true!

6) I read a lot but I also love to listen to people read. Stories or Poems, classic or modern, I like listening to all.

7) My favorite animals are, in no order, The Emperor Nautilus, Jelly fish and Cats ( <– I have 2 ).

Well that was hard!  🙂

All these blogs are different and all super fantastic. I hope you like them as much as I do!

Happy hugs everybody.x.x.


I’ve been nominated for a few awards and I need to thank these people…. 🙂

First I want to thank Tom Lucas http://readtomlucas.com  for the Reality Blog Award. If you haven’t been to his blog, it’s got a little of everything for everyone. (The poems are my fav!).

Like all the awards there are questions to go with it and people to nominate as well so here goes!

1) If you could change something what would you change?

I’d change the school system in the UK. I have good friends who are teachers and all have the same complaint…. Schooling seems to be made up of more paper work and targets and less about teaching. A harassed teacher worried about target deadlines is less likely to be a fun inspirational teacher.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

I wouldn’t. Simple.

3) What one thing really scares you?

Honestly?  Trusting people.

4) What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it.

Next year I start my BA in Humanities, so completing it and completing it well.

5) If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

Oh easy! I’d be a man! 😉


Time to nominate some fantastically brilliant people!






I picked some truly fantastic people, hope you like them to. There are other people but I have other awards and they will appear there!

Hope the rest of your day is fantastic.x.
