I've been tagged.

I have been tagged by Kella she has passed on this 'You are a good Read' award for which I am very grateful, thank you Kella. It's always nice to know that what I write is of interest to others, even though in the beginning when I began my blog I really only did it for future reference for myself and to be able to look back and see what I have achieved.

Anyway where was I ? oh yes ! part of receiving this award is that I have to write 10 things about myself, here in public on this blog !!! so here goes.

1. The most important thing in my life is my family. My daughter, two son's and my four grandchildren and of course my husband. We did good and are truly blessed.

2. I hate time keeping, and I know that I drive a lot of people insane (especially previous bosses) because I hardly ever look at the time, never wear a watch and I am truly very laid back about the whole time keeping thing. ( I never let anyone down though)

3. I am passionate about anything that I take on in life, be it a craft project, my allotment (very passionate about that) my garden, a college course, a worthy cause.

4. I would truly do anything for anyone within my power that wasn't illegal or morally wrong.
(I sound like 'Mother Teresa' )

5. I detest prejudice of any kind and wish that we could all be judged as people rather than white, black, yellow, or by our race or religion, or disabilities.

6. I love being with babies and small children, they are so innocent and interesting and have an unconditional love, and cuddles in bed in the morning with the smaller grandchildren are worth waking up for.

7. I always have 'to do lists' on the go much to everyone's amusement, my two son's are list people as well (must be hereditary) not that I always get the 'to doo's' done.

8. I go to bed far too late, and would love to change that.

9. I love being a wife, mother, grandmother, housewife. A true Cancerian -I love my home and garden, I love to cook and feed family and friends. ( such a domestic Goddess !! ha ha)

10. PHEW AT LAST. I LOVE sunny days, being with friends, family gatherings, beautiful flowers, a good film, a good book, rain running down the window when I am cosy inside, a good laugh it's better than a tonic. Pottering in my garden.

Well that wasn't too bad, I thought it would take me days to write this and that 10 things would be hard to think of. Now I just have to pass this award on, so I am going to pass it to:

Pam at Hortensia

Ali at Stanley Road Allotments

Allot of veg

Pam at Pam's English Garden

Joanne at Joanne's cottage garden

I hope they will take up the award challenge, but I will understand if they would rather not.

I'd love to participate Maureen, and thank you so much for the award. Like you, my blog was just for me, but it's wonderful that other people read it.

Kella said...

Thats a lovely list, thanks for sharing.

Some of the things I'm known for s well :)

Carrie said...

cool idea and great answers. But besides that ~ You have my wedding poem up on your page. I LOVE YEATS and had that read by my mother in law during the service as all I do have are my dreams and my love (no money, haha) to give to my darling husband.

Maureen said...

PAM, so glad you are going to take the challenge, looking forward to reading your 10 things.
KELLA, thank you ! It was a good challenge and I love the award.

CARRIE, it is a cool idea and I must say it's one I enjoyed taking part in.
That is my favourite Yeats poem, how lovely to have it read at your wedding, very special ! and I'm sure Andrew is content with your dreams and love, it's worth more than any money.

What fun! Thank you so much for choosing me. I hope you like my ten things! Thanks again.

Jo said...

I enjoy reading people's lists. I think it gives you an insight into the blog owner, and besides, I'm so nosey!
A nice list, Maureen.

Maureen said...

PAM (English garden) I read your list and it's lovely. I left you a message on your blog.
JO, thanks for the comments and the visit. I think your right lists are interesting, like you I'm nosey too I think it's a girl thing !!!

Hi Maureen (aka Mother Theresa)
Other than not wearing a watch and being an irremediable night owl - you seem to have it together. Of course, it's those tiny vexatious things that make us interesting, so it's always best to cultivate a few.

Helen said...

Popped over to see you!!
Thank you for your comments about my blog!
Love Helen x

Maureen said...

PROSPERO, thanks for your comment, always welcomed, I will be sure to cultivate these eccentricities as I'd like to be interesting, or better still eccentric.

HELEN, thanks for popping over, I hope to see more of your lovely blog soon, although if I do I'm sure my clutter will be coming out of my attic again, I do miss all the things I collected, minimalism means less cleaning though. But clutter is more homely.

Maureen said...

ALLOT OF VEG, like it ? I love it ! I knew your 10 would be amusing. I have left how to link on your blog, I hope you can understand it.

Joanne said...

Maureen Many thanks for the award challenge. I have had something similar already I think 4 times and I am still codjutating. Well actually I have just been so busy but will get round to it one wet day.
I have been busy with Lyme disease conference and trying to raise awareness and so the garden is so behind and blogging even further but must try and catch up.

I still have spare delphiniums but you need to be blindfolded to go down the garden it is such a mess.
