Thank you very much to What Katie Did Next who has nominated me for the wonderful Black Cat, Blue Sea Award.
“This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee.”
A wonderful gesture from Katie whose blog is both insightful and a fascinating read 🙂
Anyone nominated has to answer three questions, set by the person who nominated them, and then nominate their own recipients whilst also setting them their own three questions to answer.
The questions set for me to answer are:
1. If you could swap lives with someone for a week, who would it be and why?
It doesn’t say the person has to be living – I would have loved to swap places with Charles Darwin, as he spent time on the Galapagos Islands. Why – because his finds on the island supported his theory that species of living things have changed over time leading to his publishing of The Origin of Species and his theory of evolution by natural selection. Life changing.
2.What is your favourite book, movie and CD?
Favourite book – very difficult to narrow it to one book: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (just beats A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth)
Favourite movie – Old: Breakfast at Tiffany’s Recent: Pretty Woman
CD – this is so difficult… Pink Floyd – Dark side of the moon.
3.Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
If I’d been asked this 2 months ago my answer would have been very different but having been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy and drug therapy…I just want to be here.
I would like to nominate the following people:
Laura Feast Wisely
Fran Nelipot Cottage
Deborah and Charlotte Desires of the Foodaholics
My questions for you are:
1.If you were an animal what would you be and why?
2. What is your favourite book?
3. Who is your hero / heroine?
