Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...

Well done everyone - I get so much pleasure from reading your blogs and pass this award on to you as a thank you,

And my questions to you are -
  1. I love hearing the sound of the rain, coming from Africa it is seen as a gift, how do you feel about the rain?
  2. Ever done something at school that at the time seemed really cool but now - you've realised 'how silly' it was?
  3. Got any tattoos and/or piercings? Care to share/reveal??
  4. What is on your knitting needles or crochet hook at the moment?
  5. When I need a little 'me time' I put on the fairy lights, light some incense and reach for my crafting - what do you do?
  6. What is the perfect film to take your best friend to see? (Can be current or vintage) and why that particular one?
  7. Do you have a favourite colour/s above all others? 
  8. Does that colour dominate your wardrobe?
  9. What bit of technology could NOT do with out?
  10. Is there something that wish you could perfect or even attempt? For me it is knitting socks - something I will do......one day.
  11. If you could travel to anywhere in the world for a picnic with your most favourite person, where would it be and what would be in your picnic basket - go on the world is your oyster!
