tea, ironing, rings, cats and autumn

image from here

I was tagged by the talented and lovely Belinda for a Kreative Blog Award. To play along I have to share 7 things about myself and then passing the award on to 7 others.

• I love earl grey tea and green tea but I also love coffee and generally don't get through a week day without one
I don't iron until I need to wear something that really can't pass for not being ironed. I really don't enjoy ironing! • One day this week I forgot to wear my engagement ring. I felt really guilty and little sad for leaving it alone all day • By the end of this year I will have a new surname, something I never thought I'd change but after much thought and consideration I now can not wait • When I was a little girl I owned several cats (one at a time), two of which I called Smokey and Smokey II. Not very creative huh? I am not very good at replying to things - emails, text messages, invitations, letters. Sorry if i owe you one, I have good intentions but am often bad at following through • My favourite season is Autumn

I'm passing this on to: checks and spots,
tuxedo black cashmere pink, tell me a story brave heart, one yellow jumpsuit, rummey bears, in the light of the sun, little chrissy

Hey – thanks for this! I'm with you on the ironing... hate it. But for some reason I find hanging out the washing very therapeutic. Will post mine up this evening! xx

I love autumn too. A real country autumn not these half-hearted attempts we get on the coast. Ah, miss a country autumnal morning.

Tuxedo Black Cashmere Pink said...

thanks for posting your sweet 7!
i don't iron either! a guy came to our door the other day asking to borrow the iron to iron his interview outfit and i had to say: 'i have no idea where it would be, sorry!'
yay for autumn and you getting married this year :)

Kylie said...

Autumn is my favourite too :) Lovely to learn more about you Evie. Kx

Thanks for sharing.....and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Good luck with changing your name.....maybe it was just me but changing my name seemed to confuse people. I ended up with 2 superannuation accounts and 2 electoral enrolments. One in my maiden name and one in my married name. Ooops. Have a lovely Friday. Melinda xo

CHECKS AND SPOTS said...

Bless you Evie, you're ever so sweet. I do love reading these things about you - it's fun knowing that you have some things in common with talented people you admire! I could almost cut and paste your 7 things as my own...except for the engagement part and the cat names! Congrats on your engagement though, how exciting! I hope to have a big party one day but am not holding my breath for a proposal...
Thanks again. Autumn rocks, I think you're great at replying to things and ironing is waaaay overrated! xx

Martta said...

Autumn is my favourite too! Thank you for the award you are ever so lovely. The only reason I iron is, because my mum hated it so much I felt I needed to take over. But then I can't vacuum for my life. I mean I always tried and then came along mum and vacuumed again, and funny enough my boyfriend does the same exact thing. Have a good weekend! The roaring storm just passed over our neck of the woods.

mama bear said...

Eeek! I am going to do this still. I was planning on doing it last Friday but then plans changed and I had a baby! hehe... Will get to it soon. Thanks again for passing it on. xxx
