Award and meme


This is from Akelamalu - for which much thanks, Ak. This award is "for those that have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on in the times that others need that. Those who display the "Spirit of Christmas"."

This is ironic given that Christmas is my least favourite time of year but that has nothing to do with loving and giving. That is another Long Story.

The Meme is as follows:-

4 Jobs I've had:-

Waitress
Cleaner
Accommodation Officer
Landlady/Writer

4 Movies I like to watch

Shawshank Redemption
Pretty woman
As Good as it Gets
Bridget Jones the first one

4 places I've lived

London
Devon
Cornwall
Cornwall

4 favourite foods
Marmite
Peanut butter
Crunchy salad with french dressing
Home made soup

4 places I would rather be

I wouldn't. Even though it's grey and drizzly.
I'm sticking right here in Cornwall.

Cornwall!

I am terribly envious of you living in Cornwall, even in the rain it's lovely! I'm hoping that next Spring we can arrange a holiday in Treligga - we haven't been down for two years and I do miss it.

If you come down give me a call, AOJ. I'm glad you enjoy this part of the world. It's very special to me and gets more so.

Congrats on another award FP, and some lovely MEME answers. Cornwall gets my vote for places I would rather be...although it's a close tie between Shropshire. You can't beat peanut butter, can you?

Flowerpot said...

Cornish blood will out, RT! Can't say about Shropshire as I;ve never been there. But peanut butter is a must - but I like the Whole Earth, crunchy one. (Himself likes teh smooth Tesco one!) AT least we don't fight over it...

Dee said...

I am also envious of you living in Cornwall, and I haven't even been there yet! But lots and lots of people continuously tell me how beautiful it is. You are lucky ;)

Nice meme and congratulations on the well deserved award!

Flowerpot said...

Dee - good to see you again. I havent been ignoring you - well, not on purpose, but I still can't access your blog so cant make comments!

laurie said...

liz fenwick said...

Cornwall.......I'll be back briefly in November so if you don't make to the winter party we can definately catch then if you are around :-)

Flowerpot said...

laurie - yes I like the picture of the award - you can almost hear that tinsely music!!

Liz - hope to see you in London but if not I hope we can meet when you are back in Cornwall. Email me and I'll give you my number! Glad you enjoyed your break - sounded like you needed it.

JJ said...

What a lovely meme. Isn't it funny how the simple things can say so much about us?

Flowerpot said...

jj - now you've said that I've got worried. I must read that again...!!

Miss Understood said...

That last answer almost brought a tear to my eye! Cornwall is beautiful, but the fact that there was nowhere else you'd rather be was the most beautiful part of all.

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Congrats on your award and I love your meme answers. A pot of soup really does sound good, doesn't it?

Akelamalu said...

I would love to live in Cornwall, if only all my family would come with me. :)

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Another award for you! Congrats.

Em said...

Lane said...

You're very lucky to be living somewhere you have no desire to ever leave:-)
And Marmite - love it.... thick:-)

Flowerpot said...

MissU - no and I'm very lucky I know. But it's good to have done the travelling and stuff first and then come home and settle, I think.

correspondent - in fact I made a batch of soup yesterday and it was Good. My soup is always Leftover Soup but it varies with each batch!

Flowerpot said...

Ak - that's the trouble isn't it? Mind you none of myf amily are in Cornwall!

Crystal - thanks and I guess you're getting ready to go away - excited?!

Em - the offer stands to you, too. Then the two Mollies can meet up!

Mid-lifer said...

Likewise I'd love to live in Cornwall (or anywhere nicer than where I live which is full of Chavs and nailbombers!).

What's the difference between a meme and a tag??

Dee said...

Weird! I don't understand why you can't access my blog(s).
Have you tried both? You can see both links in the about me page when you click on my nickname.
I still love reading yours, keep up the good work :)

Flowerpot said...

mid-lifer - I suppose a meme is the actual list of things and a tag is when someone asks you to take part. Does that make sense?!

Dee - no I can access your blog but still can't make comments on it - very strange!

MarmiteToasty said...

Yeah....... for marmite :)

I love Cornwall with a passion....
