The award goes to . . .


Today I was surprised to receive a pat on the back from a fellow blogger in the form of an Over The Top award. I'm amazed. Thank you Farmers Wife who described my efforts and and five other blogs as: ''Fun, interesting and definately worth a cuppa tea and a read!''

It is good to know Bared Nikkers does more than provide me with a source of entertainment! I was just starting to wonder whether there was any real reason to keep on blogging - apart from it being a cost effective form of therapy, place of self reflection and antidote to feeling socially isolated - and now Farmers Wife has given me some real encouragement to keep at it. As part of the award, recipients have to copy the following questions and change the answers to suit them and pass it on. The catch is only one word answers are allowed and it has to be passed on. Here goes:

1. Where is your cell phone? Handbag

2. Your hair? Thick

3. Your mother? Priceless

4. Your father? Regressed

5. Your favorite food? Vietnamese

6. Your dream last night? Forgettable

9. What room are you in? Nook

10. Your hobby? Genealogy

11. Your fear? Embarrassment

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? Happy

13. Where were you last night? Home

22. Friends? Missed

23. Your life? Rollercoaster

24. Your mood? Steady

25. Missing someone? Always

26. Vehicle? Sold

27. Something you’re not wearing? Bra

28. Your favorite store? Myer

Hey that's me! Do I really have to answer all of those questions? It seems like, you know, work and stuff.
I'll see what I can come up with

You deserve it! Your answers are great, it's kinda hard to come up with one word only. My hubby tried this out and it was truly painful....
