VIB Award

Now for something a little different.

Last week Carie received the V.I.B (very inspiring blogger) award on her blog and one of the people that she passed it onto was me! I feel like I have a lot in common with Carie, she's a work-at-home mother AND a short wife to a tall husband. But it was still interesting to learn more about her from the seven facts she posted about herself. So now it's my turn- I have to post seven facts about myself and then choose some bloggers that I find inspiring to pass the award on to.

Seven Things About Me:

  • It's a miracle I'm alive at all. I started life as an ectopic pregnancy and somehow moved down on my own before I could be surgically removed.
  • I love Bollywood movies! In my university days I didn't have class on Tuesdays so I would go to the midday session at the movies and watch a new release Bollywood film. I'd take a pillow, small blanket and snacks. The movies go for around 3hrs (with intermission) and the cinema was almost empty meaning I could spread out across the seats so it was excellent value for a cheaper-tuesday student ticket (I think around $5)
  • I didn't get my drivers licence until I was in my late twenties. I still don't have a manual license. But I learned to drive a forklift (for work) before I even had a car license! 
  • I have a star tattoo behind my right ear. The tattoo parlour refused to tattoo my head (especially for a first tattoo) and I had to go and see the owner and convince him that I really wanted it and wouldn't regret it. I've had it for  six years so far and never regretted it for a minute. It feels like it was meant to be there. 
  • When I was a teenager, I tried to get my tongue pierced twice and both times things happened that prevented it going ahead (like the piercer coming off his motorbike on the way in to the piercing place). So I took that as an omen and didn't try for a third time. 
  • I love to read and when I'm pregnant I crave books. Not to eat, haha, just to read. I'll read a novel or two a night when I'm pregnant. 
  • I don't like coriander or mango. They both taste vile to me. Coriander tastes like soap and mango tastes like what raw chicken smells like. I've tried to like them but I just can't! 

And some blogs that I find inspiring (mainly because they are all chasing their dreams):
Sonia @ Life, Love & Hiccups
Claire @ Claire Ever After
Cherie @ Raising Master Max
Peggy @ Cake Crumbs & Beach Sand
Jodie @ Journey To Contentment
Deb @ Home Life Simplified

I could have posted these earlier in the week but decided to hold off until Friday so that you can peruse these blogs at your leisure over the weekend.
