My first Real Neat Award


The rules for the real neat blog award

  • Display the award logo.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  • Answer the questions from the blog who nominated you.
  • Nominate seven to ten bloggers.
  • Ask them seven questions.

So big thanks to Sadje for nominating me for this, I very much appreciate it 🙂


Sadje’s Questions:

  1. Where does blogging fits in your daily life?
  2. Have you ever tried to do;
    • a) Paragliding?
    • b) Horse riding?
    • c) Deep-sea diving?
  3. Do you celebrate your birthday?
  4. If you have free time at hand, would you go for a walk or a long drive?
  5. Your best friend calls in the middle of the night and asks you to meet them at a deserted place, will you go? BTW, this friend has known to pull pranks!

My Answers:

  1. Since starting my full-time job in May I have struggled to keep my blog going. I don’t blog as much as I used to, but I still manage to maintain a presence on the blogosphere and write some short stories and poems. I think if something means a lot to you, you will fit it in somehow, but you have to be realistic, there are only so many hours in the day.
  2. No, No and No. I have done some snorkelling in the past but I would rather go for a walk in the park or a trip to a museum than any of these activities.
  3. Yes and No. I usually celebrate my birthday on the closest Saturday to my actual birthday, but I don’t do anything big, like have a huge party. An afternoon tea or a trip to see a show, that would be enough.
  4. I’d go for a walk, or do some more blogging, or maybe go for a long drive in order to find a suitable place to go for a walk.
  5. I would ask a lot of clarification questions of my friend, before taking the plunge and go to meet them. I rarely go out in the middle of the night and I’d need a very good reason for it. Being my Best friend, they would know that.


Questions for my nominees:

  1. When were you last surprised, what happened?
  2. If you were to put together a time capsule that encapsulated your life right now, what three things would you put in it?
  3. If you could drive in any direction, what direction would you drive in?
  4. If you could choose a new name for yourself, what name would you choose?
  5. Would you prefer to live in a world where alcohol was free or where politicians were honest?
  6. What song would you play at a party in order to encourage people to leave?
  7. Who was a really good role model for you when you were a child?


So those are the questions. I’d like to nominate:

    1. That sounds really fun. Thank you very much. I had a job interview on Wednesday so i haven’t been paying attention. I found out that I got the job, so I am pleased now, I can catch up with things I missed. 🙂


  2. Congratulations, Kristian 🙂 You are, indeed very neat!!

    Thank you for the nomination… I should pass it on to other neat-neat bloggers sometime soon 🙂 xx

    1. lol – very much learned behaviour. Because I have had to pack so much into my week every week, I have found the only way not to have melt-downs is to get ahead with everything I can, so that I never become overwhelmed.

    1. gee whizz mate – that’s terrible – but sadly that is the way of our world today – it’s bloody employers trying to keep employees on their toes, as a practice it started in the very late 80’s and early 90’s. I remember watching when the Burton group tried to tell us all we had to move from full time contracts to contract contracts and then this crap about being reinterviewed for our own jobs.

      employers one day will wake up and smell the coffee …oh no wait a moment they wont. They are arrogant sofs ay best.

      Well done for passing the interview for the job you were already performing though 🙂


  3. Thanks so much for the nomination Kristian! Congratulations on yours and I too try to just fit blogging in when I can. I get what you mean by if it’s important you just find a way somehow. Very much appreciated and I will try to get to this soon 🙂
