My new friend Rhianne has bestowed the kreativ blogger award on me. Thank you so much!
*To my father,
Please don't judge my spelling of 'kreativ'. That's how the blog award is spelt. I did check. So please don't store that spelling mistake up for the next time that you see me. Thank you and love you, Saskia xx PS When are you going to get broadband?
The award requires me to write seven random things about myself.
So here you are:
#1 I give blood 3 times a year. I am proud of this. #2 I ♥ The Wire . It is my favourite tv programme of all time. It's so, so well written. #3 I often eat the whole week's worth of biscuits and chocolate before Mr B even feels like a snack #4 I would love to sky dive one day #5 I am very bad at managing money #6 I have travelled to 20 countries #7 I learnt ballet for 14 years
I'd love to know something random about you, that I don't already know!
I am getting prepared for our upcoming jaunt to Egypt.
So far I've purchased
~ Jungle formula extra strength
~Anthisan antihistamine cream. Have I ever told you about my fame in the mosquito world? No? They come from miles around just for me! It's wonderful and very flattering.
~ Various medicines used for changes in diet in hot countries. I think that's a pleasant way of putting it.
~Four different bottles of Piz Buin. Best sun cream in the world.
~ Two sets of snorkel fins
~ Two clear snorkel masks. My snorkel mask will be the one item I wear almost constantly on holiday. Even when we visit the pyramids.
~ One snorkel pipe for Mr B. He is apparently going to practice breathing through the pipe in the bath. I don't like using a snorkel pipe. I never save enough breath to blow the water out of it and end up choking.
~ Some new sandals.
~ And a new sundress.
~ 2 prints from Etsy for my house. These are ever so important for our holiday.
~ Tonight I'm getting my tangled birds nest hair cut so that I have at least a slim chance of managing to comb through it after hours in the Red Sea.
~ I still need to purchase a disposable underwater camera to capture all those nemos.
I absolutely love receiving proper post... handwritten letters and cards from friends and family brighten my day. If you fancy receiving postcard surprises from around the world then visit Postcards from my Hometown! I've signed up, will you?
Normally I feed the Meesh after I've had a shower and have been awake long enough to use my hands, open my eyes and hopefully know what day of the week it is. This normally takes me quite a while. Until I give her breakfast she is impossible. She trips me up by skipping about under my feet, she mieows so loudly and continuously that I have considered using my F1 earplugs and of course she has perfected the big-I'm-the-cat-from-Shrek-look which I always give in to.
This morning Mr B fed Meisha before I woke up. What a heavenly morning I had! No cat to trip over! No shrill shreeky mieows! No big eyes making me feel guilty!
But Meisha had an even better morning. After eating her fill at 6:15am she was sprawled out, sound asleep by 7am.
