How wonderful

I met another blogger last week. ♥

It is Sandra from Quirkybooks.

Sorry the picture is rather dark, but it was at night in front of a theatre in London.

It was lovely to meet Sandra, we had a great chat over a meal and got to know each other. She is such a bubbly, enthusiastic, busy lady and “quirky” in a “surprising” way as her blog name says. She is doing some fantastic work, so do checkout her blog.

Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

My answers here:

1.If you could visit anywhere in the world for only one day, where would it be and why? I would go to a beach with palm trees lie in a hammock between 2 trees and sip a cocktail and relax all day! You get the picture….

palmtree

2.What is your favorite scent? I love Lavender

3. What is your best memory of Christmas? When I was a child we were allowed to decorate the tree, and put our own handmade decorations on it. I was always proud to do that.

4. Were you ever scared at Halloween? I do not celebrate Haloween, but last year I was scared as I was alone in a big house, and the doorbell rang, then someone knocked on the shutters, again and again…. I ignored everything. In the end it turned out to be the caring neighbour to see if I was alright.

5. Are you under, over or at five feet tall? I am 5 foot 11, like it tall! 🙂

6. How many languages do you speak? I learnt 3 but I speak really 2. English and German. French I learnt but it is terribly rusty.

7. Have you ever told a lie in order not to hurt anyone? I have when I was a child.

8. What would you do if on Christmas morning, instead of Santa coming down your chimney, it was me? I would give you a big hug (after dusting you off)….. and would give thanks for the best present! Then I would treat you to an English traditional Christmas dinner, which I might not burn…. we would have a wonderful time Terry!

9. When do you start buying or preparing for Christmas? I buy bits and bobs for Christmas all during the year, as sometimes you see something and you think straight away of a person who loves this. I love to buy and make presents and treat my friends. Often they are self made.

10. What is your custom for Thanksgiving? We don’t celebrate thanksgiving here in Europe, still I give thanks every morning, every day for the friends and things I have and my wonderful life.

thank you

To Lyn and Terry for nominating me for the lovely Awards, I really appreciate it!

Now my 10 questions for my nominations:

1. Are you a morning or an evening person?

2. Which day of the week is your favourite and why?

3. What is your favourite fruit and veg?

4. If there was a planet/star which can be lived on apart from earth, would you go there to live and why?

5. What type of music is your favourite?

6. Have you had any encounters with animals/ insects you don’t like?

7. What makes you happy?

8. Imagine you are on a lovely island, stranded, who would you like to bump into?

9. What colour suits you best? Do you wear colours often?

10. Is nature important to you?

My nominees for both awards are: If you don’t do awards no worries, I do like your blog and say :” it is great” with this!

Dear Friends, you are wonderful and make me feel really special. But it is YOU who are very special to me. I am very touched that Alastair nominated me for the Sensual Blogging Award. I thank him with all my heart.

I have received quite some awards lately and I do love them as it means that you like my blog and it touches you what I write. A wonderful feeling, knowing that I am liked!

This is what you give to me and I thank you all!

“As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation & support from others.”~J Donald Walters

So I will happily accept and add this sensual award to my list, thanks to Alastair. Of course there are the rules again:

When nominated for the Sensual Blogging Award the blogger must:

  • Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
  • Answer 7 sensual questions
  •  Select some nominees and notify them on their blogs.
  • Copy and paste the award on your blog.

ok, I have to answer 7 sensual questions:

1. most romantic memory: was really my first real kiss, as we sat on a stonewall, looking down at the river, starry sky above us, city light reflecting in the river….and kissing. It was incredibly romantic.

2. Most sensual music: See below

3. Most sensual season – Spring, new life is coming everywhere

4.Favourite flower – Sweet Williams

5. Favourite fruit – Apricot

6. Best gift received – Love

7. Love is – two hearts beating as one; Love is all we have, we cannot live without love.

As I don’t follow many sensual blogs I nominate blogs that touched me:

1. The Joy project

2. The curse of a single parent

3. A journey to happiness

4.The Cathie Barash Blog

5. A place called Love

I hope you get inspired by this nomination and keep your sensuality and creativity going!
