It's also cool to win something seeing as this blog has only been around for just over 3 months. I started it when I was recovering from ankle surgery, and couldn't walk or leave the house. I wasn't really sure whether or not I would continue for long, but I've enjoyed the contact and community that exists in the blogosphere and here I am, still posting blurry pictures of my outfits from my work loo and enjoying it.
Thanks so much to Naomi for the award, and thanks to all of you who visit and/or comment.
Here are the questions that Naomi passed to me:
1. If you could look like anyone who would it be?
Hmm. This is a difficult one. I'm going to cheat and choose two:
Uma is just gorgeous - what an amazing face!
2. What character from a book do you most identify with?
Hmm. Hard one. I rarely find a character I can truly identify with, but perhaps Nora from 'A Doll's House' by Henrik Ibsen. She is strong and feisty. Another great character is Bathsheba Everdene, from Hardy's 'Far from the Madding Crowd'. Both of these characters are strong women living in a time when it wasn't common to show strength as a female. It's interesting that I've chosen books from the 19th Century written by men.
I actually found it very difficult to answer this question.
3. What is your favourite flower?
I love snowdrops. They don't grow here in Australia, but I loved spotting them in the woods in the UK every winter.
4. If you could meet one person from the past, who would it be?
Probably my Grandmothers. They died when I was very young, so I would love to meet them.
5. What would you talk about?
Family, history and their lives. They were both born in the early years of the 20th Century and lived through WW1 and WWII in the UK
6. Have you ever won anything? If you have, what was it?
This award!! And a meat tray at the local pub last year!
7. Which bag would you choose between a Chanel 2.55 bag or Hermes Kelly bag?
Hermes Kelly - not a fan of Chanel bags AT ALL. Can't bear all that quilting.
8. What one event will forever remain etched in your memory?
The births of my children - the pain and joy and sorrow.
9. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one book, which one would it be?
At the moment, I'd take William Dalrymple's 'Return of a King' because I'd probably actually manage to concentrate and read it.
10. What made you finally write a blog?
Being confined to bed for almost 6 weeks and being obsessed with clothes and fashion in general. I saw all these lovely blogs of women in their clothes (not the pro bloggers, just normal people) and thought to myself 'I'd like to do that too!'. I had free time to do it for the first time in decades!
