From me to you

So, I got this Meme award from Sandy and, the rules are as follows:

  • Acknowledge the person who gave you the award
  • List seven personality traits about yourself
  • Pass the award on to seven other blogs that deserve recognition for the personalities that they share with the blogging world.




Between compiling lists of seasonal vegetables for tinygreenpeople and feeding tinyelf who was a total boobie monster today (crazypixie was off adventuring with my parents) I did a wee bit of introspection and came up with the seven personality traits required (btw himself thought I should add Brilliant to the list – he’s saying all the right things at the moment).



Seven Personality traits of Jen:

Caring. I might not be great at expressing it always but I care deeply about my family and friends. I care about the welfare of strangers and animals and nature, and the wellbeing of the world in general.

Fair. I try to be fair and treat everyone with respect, especially my own children. I hate to see people being treated unfairly, and I particularly dislike people abusing power over others.

Determined. Try coming between me and something I feel strongly about and you’ll see how determined I am.

Bookish. I’ve always been a total bookworm and since I’ve become computer literate I am proudly both a nerd and a geek! A gnerd, maybe?

Mischievous. Or evil as some of my so called friends would say!! I like a bit of fun if it doesn’t harm someone else. On holidays with my brother we bought a load of garden gnomes and at night placed them in strangers gardens; there must have been some pretty confused people the following day.

Self critical/analytical. I am guilty of over analysis. I’ll remember something stupid I said 10 years ago and still cringe. I can’t watch the video of our wedding as I have such good memories of the day and know I would spoil them by nit picking.

Sensitive. I take things personally. I can’t help it! I may come across as a confident woman but there is sensitive little girl in here too.


So I’ll pass this award on to some bloggers I’d like to know more about. Some of the blogs I’ve only just discovered, others I’ve been following for a while. Some are due babies imminently so blogging awards may be the last thing on their mind but hey, when you’ve got the time guys.
