I was equal parts humbled, flattered, delighted, grateful and tickled when I found out that Ann-Kat of Today, I Read honoured me with this recognition. Thank you very much, my dear. It’s very kind of you to remember me.
In accepting this award, I should do the following:
1. List 5 of my addictions (books and reading don’t count)
2. Give this award to 5 other bloggers
1. Bags, bags and more bags
I like them in all their guises. Notice I say “like” and not “buy” … and thank goodness for that! I just enjoy looking at them and checking out the current trends. I do have my preferences in terms of colours, designs and brands, and when I see one that fulfils all these requirements, I find it hard to resist, I’m afraid. Lately, I’m hooked on those recycling/green tote bags … you know, those that you bring with you to the grocers or shopping so that you won’t have to use plastic bags – I’ve got quite a stash of them. My defence is “hey, I’m helping to save the environment!” I’m sad, I know. And to close this topic, I’ll leave you with hubby’s frequently-heard groan – “Not another bag, is it?"
2. Bookmarks … the unusual ones
I have quite a collection of unusual bookmarks. What I mean by unusual is anything other than the printed paper variety. Every time I travel, instead of buying magnets, keychains, t-shirts, postcards (etc.), I’ll search for bookmarks. I should put up my collection on Flikr … one day.
3. Chocolates … the darker, the better
Yes, dark chocolates. Sinful, rich, pure bliss. What more can I say?
4. Crafting and craft supplies
I enjoy making things with my hands. However, I’m not the adventurous crafter who wants to try every craft. I stick to what I like – crochet, cross-stitching, glass painting, origami. And I go a little crazy whenever I step into a craft store – it seems everywhere I look, there’s something begging to be bought. For the health of my bank account, I limit my shopping trip to once every two to three months.
I like them all, but my favourites are cappuccino and Starbucks’s Iced Mocha. When I was working, I used to drink 4 to 5 cups a day, but have now cut back to 1 cup a day. I can drink coffee just before bedtime and still sleep soundly afterwards. I’d be miserable if I hadn’t had my coffee for the day.
The 5 bloggers I give this award to:
(I'm picking those who haven’t got it yet)
1. Brandy of BookMom
2. Christine of The Happily Ever After
4. KristieJ of Ramblings On Romance, etc.
5. Taja of Books & Games
Let’s see your addictions, ladies.
