ABC of Me
Having commented on what a fun post Sheelagh of An Irish Village Pantry had done on receiving the Awesome Blog Content Award, she kindly passed it on to me! Now I have to think of 26 words that are meaningful to me – whatever am I going to put for X?
A – Arabic, the language of my father.
B – Bodmin Moor, where I grew up.
C – now I have a bit of a quandary here, is it Cornwall or Cake or Chocolate or CT?
D – Dartington – I was fortunate enough to attend school here for a few years and they were some of the best years of my life. It is still one of my favourite places and I visit as often as I can.
E – Egypt, the land of my father.
F – Friends in far flung places (ie out of Cornwall) who I miss and rarely get to see.
G – Gardens and Gardening and Growing our own food.
H – Hedges, just love love love Cornish hedges. So pretty, so much diversity and forever changing.
I – iPhone. From no mobile phone to a most amazing one. How did I get by without it?
J – July, the month I was born in.
K – Klout – give me more, especially for Chocolate & Cornwall please
L – Librarian – that is my day job!
M – Moors – much as I love the sea, I love the moors more. Whenever I’ve lived away from them, I started to pine.
N – Names, secret and otherwise.
O – Online, this is where I seem to spend much of my life these days and it’s all down to this blog.
P – Primroses, my favourite flower ever.
Q – Quilt – I have a beautiful quilt made by my quilting aunt which I treasure greatly.
R – Reading, although I find precious little time for reading print these days.
S – Spring, my favourite season.
T – Trains, I catch them most days to and from work. The journey is beautiful and quite breathtaking in some places especially when the tides and weather are right.
U – Ukulele, I do sometimes wish CT would stop playing it!
V – Vegetarian, is what I am.
W – Walking, the best form of transport ever.
X – Xinmei, a blogger whose name immediately sprang to mind for her amazing bento boxes which sometimes feature on her blog Pudding Pie Lane.
Y – Yellow, one of my favourite colours and so reminiscent of spring and sunshine & hope.
Z – Zebra, not so much the zebra itself, but as a representation of our fascinating and diverse wildlife which we ought to do a much better job of preserving for future generations.
The idea is to nominate as many bloggers as I wish, but being a bit of a maverick, I’m going to let you choose. If you think you’d like to have a go at doing a post like this, let me know and I’ll add your blog and link onto the bottom of this post.
Hooray for the following:
