Here goes:

Describe yourself in 140 characters (as if to tweet).

Long lean and learning to live in the moment, while seeing the wonder of the world around me through the eyes of a child happily smiling.

What’s the best advice you’ve given or been given?

To listen & learn.

What would be the one thing you’d change about yourself?

Nothing. People seem drawn to me as I am, warts and all.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

My daughter – She is a happy, healthy, intelligent and creative young lady.

If you could meet one person, dead or alive, who would it be?

My nephew who was born and lives in Australia, although I met his sister Clare a few years ago, I have yet to meet Dan.

Who is the last person you made angry or upset? What did you do?

I have no idea. I never set out to upset people, I would rather be helpful.

What is your go to favourite comfort food?

Comfort food for me these days is a meal with family or good friends.

What is your favourite line in a movie or book?

Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.
~ The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald

If the zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow, how long do you think you’d survive and why?

I have been blessed with determination and patience so I see myself crawling on hands and knees to reach a safe place.

What obsolete invention do you wish were still around today?

My choice is not really an invention, but I would like to see the return of time…
Time to talk and interact with each other, without distraction or interruption. It is after all basic good manners.

These days I never select bloggers for awards, because I have no wish to offend those I leave out. Instead I leave it open for all my readers to take up the challenge if they so wish.

My ten questions for those who wish to take part are:

  1. Your day so far, tell us about it in no more than ten words.
  2. Who is your Hero?
  3. Describe yellow.
  4. I’d walk a mile for ________.
  5. Close your eyes, open a dictionary, and point to a word. Does your word mean anything special to you?
  6. A song you can’t escape.
  7. In five years, will it matter?
  8. On a Wednesday, what is your routine?
  9. For dinner tonight, what would you like to eat?
  10. Who was the last person you spoke to?

    • Ed, sorry you took so long to arrive. You came the long way round via the spam bucket.

      This award was timely, it gave me something to write about and share on Wednesday. :D.

  1. I never play these games, but I shall, because it’s you and WWW, and I know the feeling she’s having, and I need something to distract me from well, yesterday’s post.
