Today's post is brought to you by the letter T

T is for Treasury. Woohoo! a second etsy treasury in a week, thanks for picking me Emma. (Emma, you have become my advertising and PR agent! ) As a result of this, 22 new people hearted me today, which is really niceT is for Tag - as In, I've been tagged, also by Emma (my new agent)
I need to tell you 7 things about me, so here goes:

1. Blue is my favourite colour, although if you looked in my wardrobe you won't find much in the way of blue clothes. You would however find lots of pinks (usually fuschia pink).

2. My favourite thing to eat in the entire world is tomatoes. I will never be bored of these.

3. I have had an idea for a children's book in my head for the last few years. I know the story - I just need to write it and get my act together to illustrate it.

4. My real name is not Monda, although these days I refer to myself as Monda more often than my real name. The name Monda comes from my childhood nickname.

5. I really enjoy going to bed - I love sleeping, duvets, pyjamas and being cosy. Despite my love of bed, I am more of a morning person as opposed to an evening person/night owl.

6. I can't look at a wool jumper in a shop, or even on a person without thinking of it as something I could felt and make into something else. I am totally obsessed!

7. I am allergic to lots of things - pollen, smoke, dust, perfume, deodorant, pets (my lovely cats!), and wool jumper dust (when I cut them up). Never a day goes by that I don't sneeze. Despite all this, I do wear deodorant and perfume, I do stroke my cats until my eyes are red and sore, and I love cutting up felted wool jumpers! (I definitely don't smoke though - yuk!)

T is also for Travel. I've just got back from a rather nice 4 day break in Portugal. It was warm and sunny each day we were there, very much unlike the UK it seems. I took lots of pictures of my travels, some of which I will share later this week. This is just a small flavour of my break:I have a big stack of emails waiting to be responded to, so please bear with me if you have emailed me and not had a response as yet - hopefully I will manage to catch up in the next couple of days.

Congratulations AGAIN!!! How fab to be in two Etsy treasuries - but you certainly deserve to be there!

Love your random tag items too.

Congratulations on your second treasury! I was wondering if your surname was Monda. Must say that is a very nice nickname! I look forward to the holiday photos.

Gina said...

Congratulations on another treasury. Interesting facts - I always enjoy reading these extra snippets about people and their lives.

Lesley said...

Congratulations on your second Treasury appearance!!

Great Monda facts there! I love the one about the jumpers - I scored one at the charity shop today and it's in the machine right now...hopefully shrinking nicely!

Your trip to the sun sounds perfect :-)


Famapa said...

congrats! and thanks for the tag, I'll get on it as soon as my brain functions properly again (have to recuperate from my recent travels)

Hi Monda,

It's an absolute pleasure to include your work in a treasury - i'll include you as much as possible in any others i put together :) This one made the front page yesterday!

I'm so with you on no.5 (well, not literally!), i love my bed too, especially when it's as cold as it has been today!

Can't wait to see your holiday pics,

Well done on the Treasury - very much deserved, I must say.

So jealous that you've had some sun and warmth - today it's cold and wet and dark. :-(

I share quite a few of your foibles.
