Almost daily diary!

Kitty has awarded me this lovely Domestic Goddess Cake Woman Award! This award is named 'The One Sweet Blog' and features a blonde lady either in a frock resembling a cupcake, or else she is actually sitting in a giant cupcake. I wouldn't mind sitting in a giant cupcake - I can see the potential for fun in that situation.
Anyway, the award comes with a tag for a meme - a '7's meme.

Here we go:

7 Things I plan to do before I die:

See my children grow to a healthy, happy, fulfilled adulthood

Find some contentment
(The two above were Kitty's but I couldn't have put it better myself!)

Write a book (there, I have to do it now because I've written it down!)

Have no regrets

Get out more!

Live glamorously

Find myself

7 Things I do now:

Love my children lots

Attempt to keep everyone happy

Try and fit more things into one day than is physically possible

Write lots of lists

Listen to music VERY LOUD when every ones else is out of the house except when I......

Dance in the kitchen with the children

Blog and check my e-mails far too often!

7 Things I can't do:

Say no!

Get my children to be tidy

Leave a bottle with just a little drop in the bottom!



Forget my past

Stop Blogging!

7 Things that attract me in the opposite sex: (in no particular order)



Sexy voice

Humour and wit



Good taste!

7 Things I say most often (to the children!):

"Have you washed your hands?"

"Go and do it again"

"Are you sure?"!

"I can't hear you both together..... one at a time "


"I love you"

"What did I just say?!"

7 Celebrities that I admire:
What, precisely, qualifies someone to be a 'celebrity' I wonder? I have no idea who are considered 'celebrities' or what they do or did to make them celebrities. There are famous people I admire for their talent or work, here are some:

Doris Lessing

Paul Weller

Shami Chakrabarti

David Attenborough

William Morris


Phillip Pullman

7 Favourite foods:


Anything spicy

Rare Steak

Any fish (as long as it's dead before I eat it!)

Homemade cakes

Soft fruit freshly picked

Chips from the paper with lots of salt and vinegar

Did I say chocolate?!

7 Bloggers who need to do this:

Nobody needs to do this, but I'd like to pass the award to, and would be interested in the answers from:

I like the idea of sitting on a giant cupcake! Funny, but I can't leave a drop in a bottle either:) Thanks for the award; I think I have another one from awhile back I haven't posted yet. I haven't forgotten it, but the computer I'm on struggles with such things. I will add both of them as soon as I get my own computer back.
The meme sounds like fun; if you don't mind, I'll save it for a little later.

Loved your answers!

I think I'd add cooked as well as dead to the fish.

Will do the meme. Oh, do I get an award too? Oh goody, thank you.

A 'dropl' of wine is never enough. (word verifier)

Oooh, thanks, suburbia, I nearly missed this post, somehow! You have some lovely answers. I shall have to think about this one for a while, as my mind is blank! No, it's not a particularly unusual occurrence!
