She writes some lovely poetry, see here for an example:



The Rules

  1. Thank the person that nominated you. (Thank YOU Thought for Change 🙂 )
  2. Link the post back to them.
  3. Display the picture on your post.
  4. Answer their questions.
  5. Nominate 10 bloggers.
  6. Provide 11 questions for your nominees.


 Questions Asked:

1. Have you ever tried to impress someone and failed miserably?

All the time. I always want to make the best impression possible. I smile a lot and I think I try too hard and a lot of people just think “Oh he’s just a shallow people pleaser”. 

2. One thing that you never ever wanna do?

Lots of these. I would never want to Bungee Jump or walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge or do anything involving heights. 

3. How much do you enjoy blogging?

A huge amount more than I ever thought possible. I find it incredibly rewarding and I have made some lovely friends in the blogging community, which I never expected to do.

4. What’s the best ever blog post that you’ve ever read?

That would be like trying to describe my favourite flower in the whole garden. 

I have been blown away by the variety and wealth of talent out there. I’ve enjoyed reading emotional stories that people have written as part of their therapy. I’ve enjoyed flash fiction and also some amazing poetry. I also love stories that make me laugh. I’ve read some great ones.

5. If you could’ve been a superhero who would you be?

I would like to be my own superhero who is blessed with great wisdom and the ability to teleport themselves and others through time and space. 

6. Are you an obsessive thinker? If yes why do you think so?

YES. I think all the time. I worry all the time. What if I did this and then they said that, what if they won’t do this. I worry about every decision ever made and whether I would have made the same decision and what would happen if I did something else. I have redrawn world boundaries based on my own thoughts of what they should be. I have changed history in my head based on my own ideas of what the correct outcome should have been. I think constantly, which is why I never feel like I can relax or sleep properly. 

7. Which is the one animal which you are most afraid of?

I have a phobia or spiders, but I think if I came face to face with a Tiger, that would be pretty scary. 

8. If you were given a chance to meet any three of your fellow blogging friends who would that be and why?

Haha. I would like to meet The Britchy One from Bitchin in the Kitchen, because she makes me laugh. I would like to meet Rory from A Guy Called Bloke, even though he says he gets on better with people over the computer rather than real life. We have collaborated on a few things and I think he’s great. There are so many people who I speak to on the Blogosphere that I think, hey it would be great to catch up over a nice cup of tea. Probably the third would be Kristian from Life Lessons around the Dinner Table, because she shares the same name and she sounds really fab. I think we’d have a right laugh. 

9. What is your craziest dream/ wish?

Because I am a control freak and worrier and I spent so much time worrying about the world, I’d like to be absolute benign dictator of the world and sort things out. Then give power back to the people in a truly democratic system without corruption. 

I’d also like a dog, it’s not crazy but it’s a lot more realistic and healthy. 

10. What’s your favorite food?

Beans on Toast with a bit of grated Cheddar cheese. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

11. What’s your most favorite word?

My favourite word changes with every passing thought.

Right now, Bliss is my favourite but that will change.

I’m rather fond of Verisimilitude, Procrastination and Perspicacity.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. I detest spiders and love beans on toast with cheese or without! It’s simple and delicious!
    I wouldn’t consider a UK trip without trying to organize a get together so I’m absolutely certain we WILL meet and you always have a home on this side of ‘the gurt big puddle’ too! I think you need to plan a trip for Autumn/mid-late October after I move to North Carolina because you would so enjoy the fall colour and warm-not-hot temps here then. 😊

  3. Congratulations and keep smiling; it’s the shallow ones who think of selfish motives behind a genuine smile. 🙂

    And thank you so much for the nomination 🙂
