It’s A Triple Treat…

Before I forget, I'd like to accept 3 awards passed on to me within the last month. The first one is from Donna McNicol from My Write Spot and she's presented me with the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you Donna!


The rules are simple. Thank the one who presented you with the award. Check. Share seven things about yourself. Eeeek! Pass the award along to 15 other bloggers…..

                                  *          *          *          *          *          *

The second award is from TTT from Tara Tyler Talks. Actually it was a toss up between Kreativ, Fabulous and Stylish Awards and the recipients got to choose whichever one she fancied… so I opted for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Thanks Tara!

                                                                     Thanks you, Candy Lynn!

Now to answer the set of questions that accompanied this award:

1. What's your favourite song? All time fave or at-the-moment?  The latest song that I really like is Goodbye To Yesterday off Incognito's latest album which dropped in March of this year.

2. What's your favourite dessert? I don't really have a sweet tooth but I do like apple crumble with fresh cream.

3. Which do you prefer: White or Wholewheat? Wholewheat, although we have a bread called Best Of Both which tastes like white bread, but contains the fibre goodness of brown bread.

4. What do you do when you're upset? Withdraw into myself, and work it out in my own way…

5. What is your favourite pet? My dog Flash!

6. What is your biggest fear? Not too sure.

7. What is your attitude, mostly? Upbeat and positive.

                                     *          *          *          *         *          *

The One Lovely Blog Award award is from Elise Fallson. Merci Beacoup! Once again, name and thank the blogger. Check. List seven facts about yourself. Eeeek again! Pass the award on to fifteen other bloggers…




So now I'm going to share seven facts about myself as required by the Versatile Blogger and One Lovely Blog Awards. You didn't think I was going to post fourteen facts did you?! Eeeek!

1. I don't like to talk about myself (and I always mention this as no.1 when posting random facts)

2. I prefer reading to watching telly.

3. At the end of my second year of teaching,  I did a 3 week Kontiki Tour and travelled to 7 countries in Europe.

4. Six years ago, I resigned from full-time teaching, and now teach music appreciation for 2 days only, at a primary school.

5. I love different types of costume jewellery – beads, bangles, rings, earrings…

6. I'm terrified of cockroaches (especially the flying ones)…

7. We need to spend the same amount of time/energy worrying about our own lives, instead of judging/criticizing the next person, then we will see progress in our lives… I really believe this!

                               *          *          *          *          *          *

Since I've seen these awards on most blogs, I've decided not to pass them along at this point. If you haven't met Donna , Tara or Elise yet, I encourage you to swing by their blogs when you have a chance! I promise that you won't be disappointed!

    Congratulations! Is your dog named after Flash Gordon?

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:06 pm

      Alex, I somehow knew that you'd latch onto that answer… 🙂

  2. Shelly on June 19, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    Hugs and chocolate bars to you! I love apple crumble and pie, too, topped with vanilla ice cream.

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:07 pm

      Shelly, I'm not really a fan of  ice-cream and eat chocolate on occasion… but I'll accept the hugs anyday! 🙂

  3. tara tyler on June 19, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    thanks, sweetie! great answers! i wish i could "do" europe!

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      Tara, that was many, many moons ago… I think I'm overdue for another trip… maybe I'll win some money… but I don't take the lottery, so that rules out winning money. I'll just have to save – very hard!

  4. The Golden Eagle on June 19, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Congratulations on the awards!

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:10 pm

      Thanks G.E. 🙂

  5. Mary on June 19, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Oh lord! Cockroaches fly? I'd be running for the hills. Congrats on the awards.

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      Mary, because of the humidity we experience in summer, our roaches are really big – and they fly! After all these years, I'm still not used to them… *shudders*

  6. Susan Kane on June 20, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I withdraw when I am troubled, as well.  Apple crumble with vanilla ice cream is the best.

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:14 pm

      The withdrawal tactic is one that's been with me from childhood. Seems like most people like their apple crumble with ice cream… 🙂

  7. mary aalgaard on June 20, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Great answers to all those questions. Your blog is all those things, and more.

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:15 pm

      Thank you dear Mary! I'm so glad that we met!

  8. Julie on June 20, 2012 at 1:32 am

    Congratulations on your awards, and it was fun learning more about you!

    • michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:16 pm

      Thanks for popping in, Julie!

  9. Rek on June 20, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Congrats Mish, you deserve them…ha, this time I beat you by an impromptu visit. 🙂
    And the Kontiki had me excited and jealous at the same time.

  10. michelle on June 20, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Rek, I'm thrilled by your impromptu visit… I know that you've been busy… 🙂 The Kontiki tour was wonderful! I went on tour at the end of my second year of teaching, after saving very very hard and making other major sacrifices…

  11. Charmaine Clancy on June 21, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Flash sounds like a fun dog name 🙂

  12. michelle on June 21, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Thanks for swinging by my place, Charmaine! 🙂

  13. Sherry Ellis on June 22, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Congratulations on the awards.  I enjoyed reading your answers.  I prefer reading to watching television, too!

  14. michelle on June 23, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Thanks Sherry! 🙂

  15. Mina B. on June 29, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    WOW!  Isn't it nice to feel loved? 
    My fav pet is Fred.  Shocker! 
    Have a great weekend!

    • michelle on July 1, 2012 at 10:01 am

      Thanks Mina! Fred is simply A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!
