Beautiful Blogger Award and other stuff

Even though I haven't been the most consistent blogger (despite my best intentions!), I'll be absent from here even more as I've just commenced medical treatment which will be demanding. I'll try and visit all your blogs as often as I can, but I need to look after myself first and foremost so I might not be around as often as I used to be. I don't know how this will impact on my writing time...will just have to wait and see.

Anyway, onto other business....the ever-supportive and generous Francine (who else can I rely on to ask where I am when I've been gone AWOL for awhile ?!!) has nominated me for a Beautiful Blogger Award. Don't know if I can do the questions justice, but here goes....

Question 1: Where were you five years ago?
1) Living with my partner and engaged to be married.
2) Had just commenced doing locum work for an agency.
3) Saving up for our wedding (in November that year).
4) Was heavily into reading crime fiction and wanted to write it.
5) Living in a private rental property.

Question 2: What is (was) on your to do list?
1) Complete this blog post.
2) Provide critique for CP's chapter.
3) Rewrite love scene.
4) Wash towering pile of laundry (oh, how exciting!)
5) Finish reading current Modern Heat releases.

Question 3: What 5 snacks do you enjoy?
1) Chocolate
2) Biscuits (mainly chocolate)
3) Cake (any really, but love chocolate - seeing a theme here?)
4) Cheese
5) Toast with butter and jam

Question 4: What five places have you lived?
1) Tasmania - can't remember whereabouts as I was only 4
2) Melbourne (south-eastern suburbs - parents' place)
3) Melbourne (northern suburbs, private rental flat)
4) Melbourne (northern suburbs, private rental unit)
5) Melbourne (northern suburbs, own home)

Question 5: What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Some of the other bloggers have had really fun lists. Mine is more self-indulgent :)

1) Quit day job (and hubby can too)
2) Travel (have only been interstate on my honeymoon and first wedding anniversary)
3) Buy a Mercedes Gullwing (in red, of course)
4) Pay off my mortgage (okay, if I was a billionaire I'd also buy a holiday house)
5) Go diamond shopping *grin*

Now, five people to nominate. This is difficult as almost everyone has already been nominated. So I'll be lazy and say if you're reading this blog, consider yourself nominated :)

Happy Easter

I know I've been AWOL from this blog for awhile (again!), but breaking my blog drought to wish you all a Happy Easter (for those of you who celebrate it). I hope you all have a nice Easter break with your families.

Today I'm having the traditional Greek lamb spit roast with lashings of tzatziki (yoghurt garlic sauce). And, of course, there'll be the obligatory tsoureki (Greek Easter bread) as well as the koulourakia (Greek Easter biscuits) and the dyed red eggs.

Dessert will be galaktoboureko (a custard dessert with syrup and phyllo pastry). Yum :) But won't do much for my ever-expanding waistline.

Hope the Easter bunny's kind to you all - have a great day.
