Passing on the bloggy love

Rather belatedly, but better late than never! A few weeks back the very lovely Chally of Zero at the Bone gave me this: I am most flattered 🙂 Thank you Chally! It comes with an instruction to list 7 things about myself, so here goes: 1. My left ear sticks out further than my right ear. When I was in my teens a doctor once helpfully told me that I could have it “fixed” with surgery but as I have never felt it was broken, and I regard the idea of unnecessary cutting of any part of my body with … Continue reading Passing on the bloggy love


Liz at Eternal Lizdom has given me this adorable little lemonade stand award, thank you so very much Liz! It is of course, a reference to the motto “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” and is given for having a great attitude/showing gratitude. I’m supposed to pass it on to at least 10 bloggers. I think I might take a page from Alix’s book for this one and dole the award out a few at a time, here’s the first batch: Chally, for deciding to challenge people’s assumptions about young writers.Alix, because if there’s one thing this woman has … Continue reading Lemonade

Liz over at Eternal Lizdom has bestowed upon me another award. This one is titled the Sisterhood Award. First, share memories or thoughts of childhood or adulthood sister-friends. Funny, sad, whatever. 1. Attending Physics Society parties at Sydney Uni with Ariane. The dry ice in a sealed bottle trick never stops being funny. 2.

A couple of years ago, feeling comfortable enough with my friend Sue to go swimming in her backyard pool wearing a … Continue reading Sisterhood Award


I’m fluttered…no wait…flattered, that’s the word. Lou (aka Bogsider) has very kindly given me the Butterfly award. I discovered this when I was sitting in the car on our hide-from-the-heat trip down the coast from Merry Beach on the verge of tears because of the pain from my back and grabbing a quick dose of net therapy on my mobile while I actually had a signal. Made my day it did. Thank you Lou! Meme rules:1. Put the logo on your blog.2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.3. Award up to ten other blogs.4. Add links to … Continue reading Flutterby
