An award ... thanks Dimi

Awww, isn't she just a honey ... Dimi over at LittleWitches/TinyWizards gave me an award and I've been so muddled that I forgot to acknowledge and do the necessary, so here I am ... Daxi Dimi. 

I have to share 7 random facts about me and pass the award on to 15 more "Irresistibly Sweet" bloggers!!

1.  I tend to be a bit of a scatter brain when I'm under pressure and need to write notes for myself, otherwise, it may well be lost for ages and suddenly, in the middle of the night, I'll remember something.  When I did not work a normal office job, I'd get up at weird hours of the night and do things I'd remembered, just so that I wouldn't forget again.

2. I often played on the pc right through the night, especially when my husband was travelling, by creating webpages or others websites and would go to the bakery before 5am to buy fresh bread and sit outside with a cuppa coffee and watch the sky lighten and listen to the birds waking (I love waking early before the day sounds start and before the first birds ruffle their feathers).

3. One of my biggest pet peeves is dirty windows.  Oh boy, I even cleaned windows when it was snowing ... okay, not while the snow was actually falling, but there'd be snow on the ground and I'd be cleaning windows.   I miss looking after my home, but appreciate our house keeper.

4. I don't eat minced meat.  I used to go crazy for it, spaghetti bolognaise, lasagne, curried or savoury mince etc. but after opening a pot that had been left on a stove with minced meat in it and seeing maggots crawling all over, I've had a huge issue dealing with minced meat ever since ... sorry for the visual.

5. I love movies but not movie houses.  I wait until it comes out on DVD or is on DSTV/Mnet to see it.  My ultimate indulgence, when I really want to see a movie, is to watch it all alone so that I can rewind and rewatch scenes. 

6. I know the entire script to Toy Story 1.  Liam watched it repeatedly - by that I mean, at least three times a day, E.V.E.R.Y. day for an entire year at least.   It's also one of my favourite movies ... its so sweet and I just love Sheriff Woody's sexy swagger.

7.  I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up!

... and here's my 15 bloggers I'm giving the award to ... I need to get back to this ... but if you pass by here and I haven't left you a comment ... grab your award ladies .

  1. Amusing answers! I also need to make lists or I'd forget to put on clothes in the morning. And I also love "Toy Story."

    Thank you for mentioning me and, even more, for using the name you did. A gesture like that is sooo appreciated. :)

  2. Lovely answers love!! ('Daxi!). You're really a very sweet woman and you deserve it!! I like Toy story very much and I appreciate waking up early after my last job (I woke up at 3.45 which at first seemed totally ridiculous!! ). And I hate to bring the sad news that maggots are born on any meat and they are needed for decomposition! (I find that kind of cute - in a way that nature does it's thing... but then, I'm a creepy person!).
    Many kisses! :)

  3. Your answers made me smile, all of them - really interesting. Grief, the maggot story....eeeewwww.
    Thanks for the tag, I will happily play along!
    And I also still dont know what I wanna be when i grow up.... :-)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
