Awards all round!

I was delighted to be awarded the Kreativ Blogger award from Freckles and Deb. I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself and then pass the award on to seven bloggers. Well as I did a similar list recently, I thought for something different, here are 7 things about me that have nothing to do with the environment!

1. I'm left handed but only with writing, with most other things I'm ambidextrous or right handed.
2. I can't knit.
3. I've never had a pet cat, though I grew up with the neighbour's cats preferring me to their own family.
4. I speak German, Italian and some French
5. I appeared in a production of Lorca's Blood Wedding when I was 17.
6. I used to be a charity fundraiser.
7. My favourite colour is green.
Rather than choose 7 bloggers to pass this award to, I'll pass it on to all of you!
I'm also delighted that Simon Kewin at Spellmaking awarded the Superior Scribbler Award to Bolts of Silk, the poetry journal I edit. I'd like to pass this award on to everyone whose work has appeared in Bolts of Silk. You can find links to these writers blogs in the sidebar of Bolts of Silk.

Congratulations on a cool award. I enjoy reading the things about you I didn't know. I am humbled that you speak so many languages. That is awesome. I did have a feeling that you love green:)

Very nice, I like this "7 things" idea very much. Congrats on your award!

Caroline Gill said...

Congratulations, CGP, and well deserved on all counts!

Titus said...

Congratulations! Also very impressed by the languages.
And Blood Wedding - wow.
I rather adore the film they made of it.

congrats on your award. you're very deserving.

i don't know if i could knit but i can crochet. as for the languages you speak, i'm impressed. i've often wished i could speak another language. i've even tried a few different times. it just didn't stick. green... i would have never guessed. hope all is well. have a great night.

How the hell can you Haiku and yet not knit?

Deb Cushman said...

We speak "bunny." Does that count as a language? Otherwise, you've got us beat!

Rachel Fox said...

Green! Absolutely. Me too.

Golden West said...

I laughed that the neighbor's cat preferred you to its own family - happily, such is also the case here!

Alison Wiley said...

Congratulations, Juliet, and richly deserved. Interesting to learn some new facts about you. You're multi-talented.

Gillena Cox said...

Lucy said...

Well done. I am very impressed that you are largely ambidextrous, but not too surprised that you like green!

Congratulations on this award, Juliet. This is a blog I always enjoy returning to as it uplifts me with its images and words.

Also, congratulations on the award for Bolts of Silk, where I know you put in a good deal of work to showcase some fine writers.
