The ABC of Me – Awesome Blog Content

The ABC of Me

Awards Plus | 22nd May 2012 | By

It can be fun to find out a bit more about the writer behind the blog. You’ll find a surprising amount out here in this 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? Here’s my ABC of Me.

The ABC of Me

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’ve 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 of this ABC of Me is to nominate as many bloggers as I wish. But as I’m 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:

Green Gourmet Giraffe
Allotment 2 Kitchen
Farmersgirl Kitchen
A Little Bit of Heaven on a Plate

    Great post! You have given so much interesting information about yourself in so few words. Your comment on CT and his Uke made me laugh. I don’t mind E playing the uke so much as having to listen to tiny tim warble along with his uke! Put me down for the challenge – it is just the sort of list I love!

      Ha ha, at least I don’t have tiny tim. You know I thought of you when I was going to nominate some blogs, then at the last minute decided not to put anyone under pressure. Glad I got that one right 🙂

      You are lucky – a little bit of tiny tim goes a long way – and E’s tiny tim collection goes a very long way! I’ve posted my ABC at http://gggiraffe.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/abc-of-ggg.html – had a lot of fun doing it – thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks Laura. I’d forgotten you know the environs of Totnes well too – aren’t the Hall Gardens wonderful? I know I’m very lucky to live where I do.

      Thanks Shaheen and glad you are up for it. It appealed to me because it captures quite a bit in just a few words.

    I love discovering stories behind blogs and a little more about the bloggers themselves. Yellow is my favourite colour too – the perfect pick me up!

    Firstly I am possibly the only being who is in complete envy of your day job! Secondly could I email you about visiting my godson in Dubai and any info on culture?

      27th May 2012 at 8:56 am

      You know what, I very much doubt you would be if you knew what it entailed! Yes indeed, do e-mail me, but I don’t know a lot about Dubai and haven’t visited Egypt since 1985. You might fare better with Sally My Custard Pie. She has been living in Dubai for a number of years and has an excellent blog about foodie life in Dubai – http://mycustardpie.com/
