This week I’ve been nominated by two lovely bloggers – Tianor and Postcard from Gibraltar – for the Blue Sky tag. Thank you to them both for the nomination. The Blue Sky tag is supposed to run through June, so I won’t nominate anyone else, since June has finished. But I will answer their questions – which are almost all identical, as an alternative to my usual Sunday Sevens. Here Goes…
- What do you enjoy most about blogging? – The friendships I’ve made.
- What made you blog and how long have you bee doing it? – I started two and a half years ago, because I wanted to use it to explore the practical side of my creativity further.
- What attracts you to a blog and why do you keep reading it? – A good title, interesting content, writing that feels natural and honest.
- Other hobbies and pastimes? – Beyond all the woolly and sewing stuff, I love dog walking, reading and cycling.
- Without restrictions, what would be your ideal job and why? – Being a mum, because it’s the best job in the world.
- Which new country would you like to visit? – too many to name one.
- Currently on your headphones/music player? – I rarely listen to music, so have no music player apart from in my car.
- What is your favourite book and why? Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel – a brilliantly written and very different ghost story. While I’m on ghost stories I’d also like to mention Dark Matter by Michelle Paver – I’d say it’s the perfectly written ghost story. Anyone got any ghost story recommendations for me while I’m sharing mine?
- If you could go back in history, where would you be? – too many places to choose from.
- What would your next meal be if you could chose and time/place/budget was unlimited? Too early in the morning to think about food. Can only fancy a good cup of Tetley tea right now.
- What were you doing right before you read this blue tag post? What will you do right after post your 11 answers? – can’t remember, it was a couple of days ago. Next I’ll be pegging out the washing.
I’m writing this while watching Glastonbury, what would your dream gig line-up be? When they were in their prime, The Cure, Ultravox, Talking heads, Madness, Simple Minds, Tears for Fears, Joy Division/New Order, Queen – yep, my music tastes are stuck in the Eighties.
And finally – because I know some people won’t forgive me if I don’t post a picture of him on a Sunday – here’s Mr Hicks last week paddling in the river.
