Reader Appreciation Award

Yep, I used to own one of these *sigh*

Oh how lovely! I’ve been tagged for the extremely prestigious and incredibly important Reader Appreciation Award *ahem* by the lovely Bibsey Mama. I can’t imagine why she has bestowed this on me but I’m very grateful for all and any awards that plop into my inbox. (Ok, so this is the first one.)

Instead of an acceptance speech awardees must answer these questions and then pay the award forward to readers who they themselves appreciate. Spiffing eh? So here goes with my answers:

Where do you do most of your writing/blogging?
On my laptop. Oh I see, you mean geographically? At home, in the kitchen, with Radio 2 in the background and one eye on the clock so I don’t miss picking Curly Girl up from nursery. Of course this may all change in the next week when Peanut joins us…

What books were your childhood favourites?
The Mallory Towers Series by Enid Blyton. I longed to be Darrell Rivers. (Yep I’m that old.)

Who is your favourite fictional character?
Winnie the Pooh. His attitude on the sweeter things in life is spot on.

What is your favourite time of day and why?
Can I have two? Bed time with Curly Girl; when she snuggles up in my arms, sleepy and warm from the bath, I breathe in her gorgeous scent and melt with love. And once she’s in bed sitting down with OH, hand in hand, savouring a glass of wine and frankly just vegging. (Urmmm… this is going to change very soon isn’t it…)

Have you ever Googled yourself and been surprised at what you’ve found?
Nope. But I do find it strangely interesting to see who has the same name as me and what they’re up to. (Stalker? Moi?)

Who would play me in a movie of my life?
In the unlikely event that such a dull movie would be made, I’d have to say Meg Ryan, pre-troutpout. Just because I love her and she has curly hair too (although she tends not to look like she’s been dragged through a hedge backwards…).

One material possession I could not live without.

Have you ever been naked in public?
Almost. Read our for the gory details.

What is your dream car?
My old Honda RVF400 nc35 motorbike. It was sacrificed in the name of motherhood and I still miss it *sniff*.

What/who/where was your first proper kiss?
Well it was more of a quick snog really, by the bike sheds with my future boyfriend’s best friend. *Blush*

And now the same questions to…
Team Lloyd, , , Honest Mum, Daddacool and Circus Mum. I always love their comments here on Bod for tea and I love their blogs too. If you don’t follow them, go and do it. Now. (I’m waiting.)

    Ooh I always wanted a Kawasaki Ninga in green and white with matching leathers and white boots… Never happened though! I am super envious of you!
    Thanks for the award my darling!

  • bod for tea

    Yay! *salutes fellow biker* I was a pillion too but decided after a while that it was my turn in front – and I LOVED my bike. We rode through Europe a number of times including to Barcelona. But I just wouldn’t feel happy riding now that Curly Girl is here (and Peanut almost too), it just wouldn’t feel right. Will I let them ride though? Mmmm… need to think about that. Yep, being a hypocrite is totally allowed when you’re a parent! x

  • SAHMlovingit

    So cool riding through Europe! We only got as far as Ireland and the Scottish highlands. I know what you mean about being a hypocrite….I’m going to be the same too! x

  • HonestMum

    Hey lovely, thanks for tagging me. I’m often useless at memes but I will try! You are so cool! Love that you were a biker-so rock ‘n’ roll! Agree with Winnie the Pooh-what a chilled out philosophical dude. Vx

  • bod for tea

    Absolutely no pressure at all my dear! Just wanted to show my appreciation :D My biker days are long gone unfortunately, although perhaps when we’re retired we’ll take it up again! x

  • SAHMlovingit

    Meant to write ZX6-R btw. Bike fail. Your old bike was awesomeness too!

  • bod for tea

    He he, thanks Mrs x

  • notmyyearoff

    I used to always want to be Alicia from Mallory Towers (There was an Alicia wasn’t there?)…and i’ve googled myself and the pics come up are definitely not me. They are of some odd looking bloke that’s definitely not related to me. Very odd!! :)

  • bod for tea

    Haha! I think Alicia was the one who played tricks wasn’t she? Glad I’m not the only one who remembers those books :D

  • SAHMlovingit

    Aw thank you for the tag lovely lady. Chuckling at your comments – oh yes, it is going to change so much next week but it’s wonderful (if slightly frantic). I’m sure peanut will slot in nicely with life. It’s surprising how much easier it is second time around.

    I didn’t realise you were a biker! I used to be too. I never got my full licence though, only my CBT so could only ride up to a 250 with plates. I was a full fledged pillion though – ex husband had Kawasaki Ninja 600. Used to be at the World Superbikes at Donington without fail every year in the Carl Fogarty days.

    I’ll shut up now :)
