About a hundred years ago the lovely Lara at lifeandloveinlondon.com nominated me for this award. I’m never very sure why anyone reads my blogs, let alone nominates me for these awards.Especially when it’s a blogger whom I admire very much. But I’m very appreciative.
And it’s a fab way of highlighting and sharing some of the wonderful blogs that are out there.
So now all I have to do is answer 10 questions Lara set me, nominate 7 bloggers and think up 10 probing questions for them
So here we go
What’s your favourite way to relax ?
Well, that’s easy! Rain or shine there’s nothing I find more relaxing than a long walk on the beach. I’m lucky enough to live 10 minutes a way from some fabulous beaches. I particularly love being there when it’s stormy. I am constantly in awe of the power of Mother Nature. Our coastline has taken quite a battering of late, and changes every time I go there. I go there when I’m happy, sad, need some peace, have things I need to think over, and to learn lines!
My Superpower would be
Hmmm. This may sound a little clichéd, but having worked in the healthcare sector all my life, I think the power of healing. I’ve seen so much pain and suffering. At times it does make you question your faith. Perhaps I could add super intelligence to that so I could help and educate others to develop new treatments and options to aid healing/reduce pain
Who was your teen crush ?
Rod Stewart ! Most people think of Maggie May, but my favourite songs are Mandolin Wind and Handbags and Glad rags. Go have a listen on You Tube. I’ve seen him live quite a few times and he still puts on a really good show
Which actress would play you in the film of your life ?
Can I have 2 please? one for my younger years and one for now?? Ideally, if she were still alive, I would choose Audrey Hepburn. She’s beautiful ……(No! I’m not saying I think I am) and a wonderful actress. There was a certain air of naivety about her, with just a hint of underlying strength. But if I can’t have her it would have to be Emma Thompson. An actress I have always admired, and we share the same birthday….well day anyway
What would be your last supper ?
Fish and chips on my favourite beach, surrounded by my favourite people
What is your ultimate holiday destination ?
I have always wanted to go to China and walk the Great Wall
What seemingly little thing annoys you beyond reason ?
People sniffing! Particularly if I’m stuck on public transport with them. I have been known to offer a tissue on occasions
Paris or Vegas ?
No competition. Paris. every time.
Who is your hero ?
My first Ward Sister, Sister Latimer. I was 17 and working on a children’s Orthopaedic ward. An amazing woman. So knowledgeable and skilled. Caring. Funny. She loved her patients. She loved her nurses. she taught me so much, and not just about physical nursing, but about human nature, humility,and how important it was to look after your staff.
If you could be anybody besides myself, I would be…..
Emma Thompson. See question 4. I always wanted to be an actress and, to me, she epitomises everything great about British actresses. She’s funny, elegant, sophisticated, not afraid to laugh at herself…….and she got to act opposite Alan Rickman
