Fabulous Mervat

My friend Mervat, a beautiful mother of three, a scientist, and a writer from Australia also nominated me for an award this week. I must tell you that this is the best kind of recognition. To know that people are reading what I'm writing and thinking about me in this way - well it warms me.

Mervat's posts are genuine and just plain lovely. Two of my favourites are Brave & Generous Kayleigh and My tender child. I hope you will go and visit and see for yourself.

The Your blog is fabulous award asks that I list five of my least favourite things. Only five??

-I really dislike construction. In our city - I'm sure it's like this everywhere-just about every major road gets torn up and detoured for most of the summer. Getting to work in the morning takes an extra 10 minutes at least which translates into getting up earlier, rushing around - you get the picture!

-I'm weak when it comes to yummy food. Here's my question. Why do fries and gravy cost less than a salad or sushi? Why does eating healthy have to be made even more difficult?

-I find this conflicting message a bit frustrating - stay out of the sun but get Vitamin D. So I lather Deaglan with SPF 50, cover his head with a hat and then give him a Vitamin D supplement.

-All the good shows end at exactly the same time every spring and we are left with reruns all summer long. Shouldn't cable prices go down to account for this??

-Bathing suit season. I'll just leave it at that.

I love so many blogs and it's really difficult to narrow down just a few to honour with this award. If I didn't include you, please know that a more fitting award will be coming your way soon.

A lil Welsh Rarebit
