Award time!

I've been a very lucky girl and have received some blogger awards. The first came from the lovely Everybody Says Don't who gave me the over the top award. And following shortly are some quickfire questions attached to it.
The second two are very sweetly from Gaynor over at Our Day by Design.

So here goes on some of the quick fire questions...
1. Your hair: shoulder length and uncontrollable
2. Your favourite food: Italian or Lebanese
3. Your dream from last night: Not packing any clothes for the upcoming work trip I have this week
4. Your favourite drink: Tea or red wine, here I agree with Everybody Says Don't
5. What room are you in: living room
6. What is your hobby: Cooking, walking, pole dancing
7. What is your fear: drowning
8. Where do you want to be in 6 years: Somewhere with J
9. Where were you last night: At home hosting dinner party
10. Muffins: Fruity
11. Last thing you did: Ate dinner
12. What are you wearing: Black jeans, yellow vest top, black cardigan and pink scarf
13. Your TV: House, Ugly Betty, University Challenge and Life
14. Vehicle: Feet (I can't drive)
15. Your favourite store: Reiss, Liberty, Zara
16. Your favourite colour: Red
17. When's the last time you laughed: sometime today but I can't remember when
18. When's the last time you cried: mid week feeling sorry for myself
19. Your best friend: J
20. Favourite place to eat: Home
I think one of the other awards asked for 10 things about me but I'm not feeling very creative so maybe another day.
Anyhow I need to pass these on, which is the fun bit! So here goes:
Anyone I've missed or who would like an award leave me a comment and I'd love to share!
Normal service to resume soon I hope! M xx

You don't know how to drive? It can be fun! Although it's costly and definitely not required if you live in a city. Where I now live, I would be housebound if I didn't drive: there's no public transit in villages the size of where I live! And the train / bus networks around Canada to get from city-to-city are nowhere near as good as in the UK.

I wouldn't be able to get around where we live if I didn't drive!! But I understand, I think if I lived in London, it would be very easy to not drive at all and to take the tube! (Mind the gap!!!)

We don't have very much Lebanese food here, but we do have a restaurant close to us that's supposed to be really good. Just haven't tried it out yet... we're not really sure what Lebanese food is! Spicy? Hearty?? Light?

Nice reading some more about you :)

@Krista - I know it could be fun, if I just got off my a** and did it. Just need to find the money now...

@Rachel - Yes London is very easy to get around without a car, in fact probably easier than with a car...
On Lebanese food it's similar to Turkish and Greek, if that helps. Lots of fresh flavours, herbs and spices. Just really wonderful stuff. I'd definitely give it a shot if you can!

@Brazen - Thanks :)

Thanks for the blog love dear!

I LOVE Lebanese too and so glad to be in London to have it more!

I totally have a fear of drowning and have rediscovered Zara.

I'm so glad London is so walkable! It makes the city so much easier to see and really allows me to discover so much more. I'm visiting zone 2 for the first time tomorrow and can't wait!
