He-he, wait till the next one comes down my way 🙂

2. Stick a pic of the award.
Easy-peasy. All done 🙂

4. Post 11 random facts about you.

Sorry, ran out of ideas, so got only 3 facts this time. Happy to answer any additional questions instead. 🙂

  • I can forgive and understand almost anything except betrayal of trust and lies
  • I rarely watch TV – had no time for that for the last 14 years. Don’t feel to be missing out much though 🙂
  • Love outdoor activities

5. Answer the 11 questions set by the person who nominated you.

1. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?

The Hobbit (Cristi, I’m not copycatting you this time. It was truly the last film I watched. I watched it twice and loved it a lot, especially the beautiful New Zealand scenery and landscapes)

2. Have you ever been to see an opera?

Yes (lots and lots and lots, as well as ballet, as I was born in St Petersburg famous for its ballet)

3. What country do you live in?

New Zealand

4. Favorite song?

Lots and lots and lots. But for today it will be an old Russian song “Steppe, endless steppe”

5. What is your favorite TV-Show?

I watch TV very rarely. Probably, Myth Busters, as my children like it a lot.

6. What is your favourite flower?

I love simplicity. Any wild flower looks beautiful to me. I like living and growing flowers rather than cut ones in bouquets – don’t like watching them dying slowly in a vase.

7. Do you have any pets?

No, not any more as our lovely pussy cat died last year.

8. What colour is your carpet?

Brown.

9. Do you prefer snow or sun?

Crisp snow on a sunny winter day – nothing can beat that.

10. What is the favourite holiday location you have been to?

New Zealand – I don’t want to go anywhere from here, even on a holiday.

11. Who is your favourite artist living or dead?

Leonardo da Vinci – one of the most diversely talented person ever to have lived on our planet. I find it amazing that one person could be so gifted in so many different areas.

6. Nominate 11 other bloggers:
With so many awards coming down my way this month, I am struggling  with the nomination bit. Therefore I would like to nominate all my followers. Thanks for following my blog, leaving your comments, sharing your thoughts and providing inspiration for me. I love your all. If you accept this award, please answer all the questions.

Cross it out!

It starts when we’re small children, about the time we first develop self-awareness. Society steps in – first in the form of our parents, then our teachers, then the media, or bosses at work, our peers – and tries to tell us ‘who we are’.

That’s when we begin creating the false self, the self that is a response to the demands of the society around us. We begin managing other people’s impressions of us, we begin to lie, we begin to act like a reflection of what we think the world expects us to be.
