Award Generosity

Recently (this was mostly written on 17th February!) two lovely bloggers have passed on awards to dadirridreaming. A few days ago Andrea of Writing Life in Words and Photos generously gave the Genuine Blogger Award. Andrea is interested in music, poetry, and art and has a gorgeous blog! The Genuine Blogger Award can be passed along without any stringent requirements.

I would like to to pass it Being Arindam for his funny, wise and entertaining blog.

The other award came from an incredibly funny and entertaining blogger Arindam who treated us to an Awards Night, complete with musical acts! He awarded dadirridreaming the Kreativ Blogger Award.

Kreativ Blogger Award Rules-

  1. Share 7 personal facts about yourself…
  2. Link back to the person who gave you the award.
  3. Pass the award on to 5-10 of your fellow bloggers and let them know you did so.

Here are seven little known personal facts:

1.  I enjoy children’s novels, or perhaps books written for teenagers. At present I am reading “Tomorrow when the War Began” by Australian author John Marsden. One of my recent favourites was Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge.

2. I need lots of quiet, I like to come home early from parties!

3. I like driving, specially while listening to classical music.

4. I started school in South Africa where my mother had taken me when I was five. We visited her pen-friend’s family, then went to see Victoria Falls before traveling back to Australia.

5. I nearly died from meningitis when I was 9, and then went to live in the country with my grandparents. I did not return to live at home in the city until I was 15 years old, although I spent school holidays with my family.

6. When I was 20 years old I went to live in Michigan to work for a group of Ophthalmologists, Dr’s Ruedemann and partners. After my twelve month stint as an Ophthalmic Assistant I traveled around the U.S.A. often hitching rides in light aircraft with pilots delivering planes!

7. When I was young I loved to climb up onto a roof to sit and watch nature all around me … no-one could see me and I could see everything that came and went, especially birds and trees. I still love being alone with nature, but I have given up sitting on roofs.

These are the blogs I have chosen for the Kreativ Blogger Award:
