Liebster Award!

A gorgeous lady I have met from the blogging world nominated me to answer some questions here in a post! This is such a great idea for getting to know each other better and getting to know a little about the bloggers we enjoy reading!

What is the best memory you have from childhood?

The first memory that came to mind when I read this is I think my earliest memory ever. We spent a lot of time with my grandparents as little people, my parents worked a lot and there were lots of times that we couldn’t be at home. I remember being scared and feeling homesick and couldn’t sleep, even though I had slept at Gran’s place often. I was laying in bed crying quietly and Gran came in and sat on the edge of the bed and tickled my back gently until I fell asleep. She never said a word, but I remember feeling so safe.

If you had the chance to go back in time and do something different, what would it be?

Hmmm this is a good one! I think there are probably lots of things I would do differently.

When did you decide to write? What inspires your writing?

I have always journalled, and have written my whole life I think. Writing here was just a fluke really and the blog hasn’t turned out to be what I thought it would be! A friend actually said that my ‘social commentary’ is hysterically funny and I should be writing somewhere people can see it, so here we are.

What is your favorite book?

I have quite a few favourite books and I read a lot (insomniac pastime) but I read mainly on my ipad. If I find a book I love I hunt it out and add it to my bookshelf… or shelves!

Describe your perfect day.

I wasn’t expecting this question to be so difficult, but I have been sitting here writing and re-writing for almost an hour. Commitment issues much? I guess the perfect day would be a lazy morning sleeping in, some good tea and time to read, and then a picnic on thebeach in the sunshine with great food, good wine and some awesome friends.

What do you in your free time?

At the moment there isn’t a lot of free time, but the free time I do get is usually either spent curled up with a book or walking the beach.

Name one kind thing you’ve recently done for someone else.

I have tried to make a commitment to kindness at the moment – whether its being considerate of someone in traffic, or looking after a friends kids so they can get a break. But I guess it was last weekend, when I paid for a lady’s prescriptions in the pharmacy. She didn’t have enough and I remember a few times where I was in that situation and had no one I felt like I could ask for help. I didn’t think twice, it wasn’t expensive, but I didn’t even really think about it until my daughter mentioned it that night. She said I was lovely.

What is your goal in life?

This changes pretty regularly for me at the moment. Just when I think I have it all figured out, something else creeps up on me. Right now, my goal is to keep moving.

How do you want to be remembered?

Oooooohh this is a deep question! I think I’ll have to come back to this one!

Is there a quote that resonates with you? What is it?

A quote that resonates with me… “It will all be alright in the end – if its not alright, its not the end”. I am living by this one at the moment.

If your life were a television show, what would the theme song be?

‘Days Like This’ by Van Morrison.

Here is a link back to my lovely friend’s post
