What an awesome and wonderful surprise to receive after work, when I turned on my PC and received a notification from DONI_W  who nominated me for my second Mystery Bogger Award.  Do yourself a favor, visit Doni and also follow her on her new blog.

5 Questions from @DONI_W and my responses

  1. What was the most awkward moment you ever experienced?
    When someone asks you a question but you don’t know the answer, but should know it!
  2. What is your favourite food?
    This may sound strange:  “Smoothies” as I have one every day for lunch at work.
  3. What are your thoughts of some humans being born poor and some born rich, what do you think the cause of this?
    We do not have any input as to where/place/area/county etc. or from which parents we are born. But as you grow up you need to shape the way the life we have been given will develop.
  4. Do you ever think life is a cycle of repetitive tasks – eat, drink, go to the bathroom, sleep?
    In a way yes (eat, drink and sleep – natural), but variety is the spice of life – you can shape your own day in many ways. 
  5. Describe me (Doni W) in three words and explain why!
    I only know you for a short time through your blog, but from what I have seen I will say “Supportive, friendly, kind”
