Reader Appreciation Award

There are times when you are drawn to someone because you know that they are like you. I like to think that is why Leonifay and I get along. We like to read each others blogs (although I really should comment more on hers!) and when she gave me the Reader Appreciation Award I was rather chuffed as I think that means she likes me!
Reader Appreciation Award

As is common there are some questions and rules to go with the award and I can nominate some blogs that I like to read to receive the award too. So here are the rules before you can have the answers to the questions! 

 The rules of this award are as follows 
1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog. 
2. Answer the ten question below for fun, but only if you want to. 
3. Nominate 10 blogs that you enjoy, or choose how many you want to! 
4. Pay the love forward, provide your nominees with a link to your post and leave them a comment
5. Pay the love back with a link to who nominated you.

What is your favourite colour?

I'm going to have to say Red. I never had a favourite colour, although I always favoured black clothes but Red has been growing on me over the last few years. I don't mean like physically growing on me, that would be bad because it would be like a red rash and then I'd have to go to the Doctors and he'd start on me about my weight and why hadn't I mentioned the red thing before.

What is your favourite animal?

I'm going to say Cat as we have three of them and other than when they need to be fed or want a bit of attention they pretty much ignore you. It's like the perfect pet for people who aren't good at looking after things. Although I think that invisible dogs (We have two) are a close second!

What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?

If you had asked me this time last year I would have said Dr Pepper without question. I've not drunk it since last year though so I guess I will have to choose something else instead. Sorelle's nice, but I'm not sure it's my favourite... maybe Orange juice? No cos that goes through me. Hmmm. Water. I like water the best. And no that's not because it's all I tend to drink these days.

Facebook or Twitter?

I don't understand. You want me to choose between them? That would be like asking me if I wanted to go to Town on a bus or a coach. They both do the same thing just slightly differently. In fact it's like asking me to choose between my children! I refuse to chose! I won't do it!

Do you prefer giving or getting presents?

It depends. If the present is a dead mouse/frog/bird or other small creature from one of the cats then I don't want it. I don't care if it means they love me lots, they can keep it. Or even better not bother at all. If it's a box of chocolates from my MIL the same thing. I've told her a hundred times that I don't do dark chocolate, that I'd rather she didn't buy me chocolate or sweets and that whilst I appreciate the gesture she really didn't have to. I'm thinking about getting a tattoo that says as much. If however someone wants to send me say a bag for my birthday like the lovely Vic did then yes I like that. 

I also quite liked giving gifts this last Christmas I know that Jen and Emma didn't get them in time for Christmas but I'm sure that they liked them and I'm pretty sure that Sally enjoyed getting hers in July.

What is your favourite number?

Erm. 42.

What is your favourite day of the week?

Let me think about this, I'll get back to you.

What is your favourite flower?

I like self raising the best. Oh Flower, not flour. I like Gerberas the most.

What is your passion?

I guess at the moment it is going to the gym as I'm explaining over on Pippa World but I don't think it will be my life long passion.

I should be tagging people with this, but I'm sorry I'm too tired to. Pick it up and carry it on if you like, you know I read you anyway!
