It is award time again.Some of them are old and apologize for taking so much time but I guarantee it is not a sign of no appreciation,on the contrary.
P.S. The order I am posting them is strictly chronological:
Thank you very much Hitting 60(hitting 60.com)for the nomination.
I am not good at talking about myself straight and I must confess I had some difficulties to find seven facts about myself decently interesting and that wouldn’t make me sound weird or dull.
1. Ortensia is a pen name with a very personal meaning as it was the name chosen for a daughter who never made it long enough to meet her sisters.
2.I went back writing after many years of abstinence and forgot how good and alive makes me feel.
3.I hate slow driver and bad parking.I allow myself to swear a lot in the car and I beep a lot too.Not much of an example for my offspring I am afraid but considering it runs in the family they seem to be immune to it.
4.After spending so much time on a dark(ish) side I now refuse negativity.The glass is always half full to my eyes and a smile must never be denied to anybody,unless they are proven assholes.
5.Over the years I pleasantly discovered that I can be a nester and a gipsy at the same time .
6.I feel uneasy around people who take themselves too seriously.Actually I find them a bit boring.
7.I deeply love my dogs but I aim to a pet bat.
The TAG Award.
Excuse the ignorance but it’s the first time I hear about this award so ,thank you Viola Blue (ideas.become.words/violableau.com))for nominating me and make me discover it.
Two questions to answer here:
1.Reading in bed or on the couch?definitely in bed ,before going to sleep or,my favorite time,on those lazy Sunday afternoons over summer when it is too hot to stay outside or when it is raining and you can read cuddled by the sound of the rain.
2.Male main character or female main character?by instinct I would say female but looking back at how I pick my book and at the books I read it actually doesn’t really matter.My choice is done through the plot and the gender of the leading character doesn’t affect it.
First of all thank you to She who nominated ,second of all,I recommend to check her blog thisdoorisallarmed.wordpress.com
I won’t hide that I had to work with this award as there are ten engaging questions to answer to:
1.My most treasure possession and its meaning: it is an antique wrist watch called like me that I have been given from my stepfather many many years ago.It is beautiful and it means love to me as he went through a lot of trouble to find it.
2.My quirk.?Unfortunately for my family I have many but they are well used to it by now,you,I don’t know so to just not put you off I will tell you the most normal one:i judge people by their house bathroom,so you know…if you will ever invite me to your house and i will ask to go to the toilet you know what I am up to.
3.I will pass question number 3 as I don’t feel to nominate one blog over all the others as my favorite.
4.Five things to accomplish over the next five years:have something published,move to an other country and mostly keep up my life as it is as i am so lucky to be happy with what I have.
5.How would I be described if I was a book character?frankly I learned that how people see you is very different from how you see yourself so this is a tough one really.If it was me describing me,I might say loyal and positive….possibly bubbly.
6.What i wish to change in myself?This s easy,I wish to change my butt with a smaller one.
7.Stated that i love accessorize and i never leave the house without them(pendant earrings,chunky necklaces and bangles are my favorite)there are jewels that I always wear like y wedding and engagement ring along with he rings i have been given when my daughters were born. Recently they gave me a charm bracelet and that is always on my wrist too.
8.If I had a superpower i wish it would be a healing power.
9.As much as it might sound arrogant I am proud of all the work I have done on myself,and of how I change.
10.What blogging taught me?To trust the web in a way.
