Thanks so much to Ann over at Inkpots ‘n Quills for my first award here at From My Kitchen Table!

In order to accept this award, I have to share 10 Honest Things about myself and then pass it on to ten more blogs.

So here goes with Ten (Honest) Things About Moi!

1. I hate fish. All fish, including those hiding in shells. I hate how they taste, how they look and how the smell! If you are ever invited to dinner chez moi, you can be assured you will never get anything that came from water to eat!

2. I love Owls. I want one.

3. I hate perfume and other artificial smells.

4. I love America and Americans (big generalisation, I know). I would love to go back this year for holidays, The Carolinas are calling me. We will see what happens.

5. I hate dishonesty. So you can rest assured that all this riveting information is absolutely true.

6. I believe in Angels.

7. I hate surprises (shhhh, but think I might be a bit of a control freak).

8. I live baking in the afternoon.

9. I hate being driven. (See surprises). I will drive, thanks.

10. I think I may have been Spanish or Italian in a former life, because I feel very at home in both countries.

Now for the hard bit: Ten Wonderful Blogs….

I pass this award on to:

Head Above Water
Irish Wanderings
Joy Frequencies
Mia’s Room
My Little Notepad
Sort of Witty
Emerging Writer
Dot Com

And I know that is 9… but 9 good ones!

  1. Hi Barbara, love your new look blog, it's great! I'm so there with you disliking dishonesty, there's nothing worse than a liar. As for fish, I know what you mean, but I've recently started eating it on the doctor's instructions for a healthier diet and am slowly but surely getting used to it. One thing I also love, smell of freshly cut grass, it may be sad, but I don't care:) My favourite place, Vancouver. Canada, how I miss you!

  2. OMG EW – I don't want to eat an owl. Lol. I want one – for my garden, so I can hear t-wit t-whoo every night and see his eyes in the dark. And just know that he is there.

    Thanks Olive – yep cut grass one of my lovely smells also. And Vancouver is on my must visit list. Would love to go!

  3. Enjoyed reading your ten Honest points! Funny you mentioned angels…working on a story with an angel theme.

    My favorite place is Tuscany. Hope you fulfill your desire to visit the Carolina's.

  4. Enjoyed your post, Barbara, am totally with you on the angels, I also agree about the dishonesty,

    Thank you for the nomination, I must work out how to do it,
    Happy writing and I'm really curious about Ann's angel story, want to read it soon !

  5. Anne – I am with Brigid on wanting to hear more about your Angel story – or hear the story itself…. very curious. And Tuscany – ohhhhhhhh…. wanna be there now!

    The other thing that strikes me is how many people believe in Angels? Interesting!!!

  6. I enjoyed reading your 10 things and I am with you on numbers 5 and 7 – never suprise me, ok and I promise never to suprise you – deal?

    Oh, and by the way, I have heard that fish speak very highly of you – so where did it all go wrong!

    Thanks very much for passing on the honest scrap to me – Ann has passed one to me too – eek! does that mean I have to think of twenty honest things!!! (Mmmm, I may have to rethink my stance on number 5.) lol!

  7. Ah ha Susannah – a fellow control freak? Very impressed with your honesty! And don't believe a word that fish tell you – they are terrible liars!

    And finally yep – a list of 20 things from you… off you go! Will be over to your place later for a read!!
