Tell Me About Yourself Award!

My dear fellow blogger, acflory from Meeka’s Mind, has most graciously nominated me for the ‘Tell Me About Yourself’ blog award. Thank you acflory! Now, according to the rules of these awards, I must first display the award logo on my blog. Check. Then I must write seven things about myself that I haven’t revealed before. Hmm … okay. Then I have to nominate seven other bloggers for the same award. That bit will be easy. So without further ado, here are my seven things.

1. I always thought I was fat when I was young. Now I look back on photos of me and I wonder what I was worried about.

2. I applied to enter the zoo-keeper internship program at the Melbourne Zoo when I was eighteen, and was devastated when I missed out.  I would have made a fabulous zoo-keeper!

3. I love old-fashioned, patterned wall paper.

4. I’m not generally obsessive compulsive, but ever since I was a child, I thought bears would get me if I sat in the bath until the water ran out. I still think that.

5. I’m more of a mountain person than a coast person.

6. Right now is the happiest time of my life.

7. I can trigger myself into conscious dreaming, but don’t do it anymore, because I don’t like the person I turn into when I enter a world of no consequences.

Okay … now for the nominated blogs. Drum roll please!

1.Notes From Olvar Wood. A blog by inspiring writer Inga Simpson, and my absolute favourite nature writing blog

2.The Truth be Told By Kate Rizzetti – A lover of truth and fiction

3. storie by Diane Simonelli – a talented writer and Meanland blogger

4. Sue Healy – craft tips for writers (my only non-Australian. Sorry!)

5. Fleur McDonald – voice of the Australian outback

6. Cathryn Hein – writer, gourmand and horse lover. What’s not to like?

7. Call my Agent – a helpful and anonymous Sydney literary agent. Will she reveal herself?

I’ve had to leave out so many of my favourite blogs. Please forgive me.

    • ‘Thanks Victoria. It seems to be,’ – she said as she gazed out her Dublin hotel room window at the magnificent 13th Century Christchurch Cathedral.’It certainly seems to be!’

  1. Loved reading your 7 things 😀 I’m right with you on numbers 1, 5 and 6. I’ve always preferred showers but that has nothing to do with bears and I try not to do 7 while driving.

    Now I’m off to check some of your nominees. I’m rather excited to be honest because apart from you and Metan, most of the bloggers I know are from overseas. I’m dying to see what my fellow aussies are up to.
