I've just read a post by Ann from Help!! I'm Stuck!!
Ann was nominated by Ms Mystery Case for the five in five series.
This is what you do:
- Answer our Five in Five questions via a blog post.
- Link back or mention the blogger that nominated you.
- Nominate and inform five of your favourite worth casing bloggers.
- GRAB the Worth Casing Blog Award for your blog post.
- Head to Mystery Case and link up your Five in Five posts.
Now I haven't officially been nominated to do this but Ms Mystery Case says it's ok to nominate yourself (and I have been known to do that from time to time ...) and as I liked the questions and don't have much of a blog post in the offing at the moment I thought I'd jump in and give it a go.
These are the five questions and my answers:
1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I published my very first blog post on the 1st April 2011, the irony of it being Aprils Fools day doesn't escape me ...
My blog started life as a diary on a dating website, it added a bit of fun to the 'serious' nature of dating and led to my making some really good friends who I still keep in touch with.
I've had so much fun and made so many friends that although I'm a little flaky with my blogging from time to time it really has become a part of who I am and I can't imagine not doing it.
2. If your wardrobe could talk what would it say about you and tell us about your favourite or most worn item?
My wardrobe would without a doubt say:
'What did you do with the rest of it???'
I'm a real sucker for the sun and spend all summer in shorts and vest tops but I also love my little summer dresses. It's debatable at time whether I'm actually wearing a dress or if in fact it's really just a long top but I rarely let that stop me.
|Today I'm wearing this dress, one of my summer favourites|
Miss Mac is 15 and often disapproves of my dress sense which I'm taking as a positive thing!
My all time favourite item of clothing has to be my New Rock boots. Mine are fairly tame compared to many of their styles but I just love them and wear them with everything in the winter from jeans to floaty dresses for that post punk depressionist look.
|These are them - aren't they fantastic!|
3. What's your idea of the perfect date night?
That's an easy one because I had it just a few weeks ago. SD and I packed up the van and headed for Burton Bradstock on the Dorset coast. We stayed on a tiny camp site in the middle of nowhere and walked to the village pub for dinner. After dinner we strolled down to Hive beach and sat drinking coffee as we watched the sun go down:
|How amazing is this?|
For me it was THE perfect date night.
4. What's on your Worth Casing list?
Hmmm, well, a week or so ago a very good friend of mine tagged me in a 'pay it forward' meme. Basically what you do is send a little something to five of your friends who post 'I'm in' on your pay it forward status. It doesn't have to be something expensive, it could just be a postcard but I've decided that as I have the odd moment of craftiness that I'm going to make a little something for 5 of my friends.
They will all get some home made bunting from me
But it will be personalised in a very special way to say something about them and their personality so at the moment I'm busy stalking them all trying to get some ideas (I can't say any more than that just now in case one of them reads this but I will post the end results at some point)
5. If you had a theme song what would it be and why?
I though long and hard about this, after all, a theme song is a pretty important statement to make about yourself.
Anyone that knows me knows I'm a little scatty, prone to making an arse of myself, have a tendency to speak and act before I think and spend a lot of time being distracted by shiny things.
In the end it was no contest, there really IS only one man with one song that can really sum me up, this pretty much (with a few tweaks) is the song of my life:
The final piece of this is to nominate 5 other bloggers to do the five in five challenge and so, in no particular order:
Holly from Full of Beans and Sausages
FC at Feisty Cat
Kate from Kate Takes 5
Roan from Rubbish by Roan
Kate from The Suddenly Kate Show
And of course anyone else who would like to join in (that includes you K, BP, Joe and anyone else who reads me ...).
Even if you don't want to take part pop over to Ms Mystery Case and check out some new blogs.
