A (somewhat) honest look at what it's like to be a single, Christian woman in her mid 30s in Sydney who wants to remain true to the life that God has planned for her but doesn't want to let go of her dream of being in a relationship again and eventually being a wife and mother

-291 My 7 Facts Award!

One thing I love about having an iPad is being able to lie in bed of a morning ( particularly Saturday mornings ) and read my emails and check out Facebook before I even decide if it is indeed worth getting up. ;)

This morning I opened up my email and found that Miss Blase whose very cool blog I discovered yesterday had bestowed upon me the 7 Facts Award!


So here are Miss365's 7 Random Facts that may or may reveal my Bruce Wayne identity - depending on how well you know me that is! ;)

1. Up until the age of 24 1/2 the longest I was ever without a boyfriend was about a month. I still remember that being the longest month of my life. I have been single since April of 1999. Yep - no relationship since in the 90's. 

2. I think I hit my peak in Kindergarten when I had two Year 2 boys give me gifts on alternate weeks until the end of Year 1. They moved on to Year 3 and changed sides of the school. I still remember some of the gifts - talcum powder, a cute little doll house furniture chest of drawers and the fizzy feeling in my stomach every week when I used to run home every Friday after school, close my bedroom door and open my gifts. I still remember those boys names. I should Facebook them. Lol. 

3. While I love high end snooty person cheese I have a thing for McDonald's cheeseburger cheese and cheese in a can. Please don't judge me. ;)

4. I genuinely mourned when LOST aired its last episode last year. I watched every ep, read forums & theories, participated in some of the ARG's that popped up during the wait between seasons and every Christmas holidays started watching the series from beginning to end again. I was team Sawyer all the way ( but for me not for Kate! ) and was genuinely horrified to read that he and Juliet were going to hook up but fell in love with the two of them together. I still miss LOST ( and I think I just potentially outed myself on this one ! Lol ! Shhh if you know who I am ! )

5. Not proud of this by any stretch of the imagination but I find it amusing but pre Christian I was once so high that I spent 10 hours one night analyzing a Metallica documentary. Proof that drugs do nothing to enhance your life. 

6. I recently found out that I have mild Sensorineural hearing loss in both ears and apparently it's congenital which means I was born with it. I could wear hearing aides in both ears if I wanted to. What is interesting is that I've never had issues with reading or schoolwork and I am a singer. I struggle with not going flat at times but the only thing I notice that I find somewhat difficult is  with is trying to follow one person's voice in a conversation when there is a lot of background noise. 

7. I am a perfectionist with the messiest flat in the world. I watch 'How Clean is Your House' and 'Hoarders' and literally thank God for making me an extrovert rather than an introvert because the only time my house gets thoroughly 'cleaned  & scrubbed' rather than 'cleaned and tidied' is when I have someone coming over. 

Ok. So there are my 7 Facts. And the rules are.....

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog - Yep. Thank you Miss Blase.
2. Post 7 random facts about yourself - done :)
3. Pass this award onto 15 worthy bloggers. There shall be a post coming soon. It may be one that add to bit by bit but I'll do it. 

This was fun !



  1. Thank you for following me. I'm now following YOU. Plus, I kinda know what it's like to be single...I've only been that my whole life! :)

  2. I found you on the Spotlight Saturday Blog Hop. I am your newest GFC follower. If you could check out my blog and follow me back I would appreciate it. Thanks Amber

  3. @Shanimal - Firstly why does my inner voice instantly want to say your name in some deep, throaty 'animal from the muppets' type voice? Lol. :) All this following is fabulous. Here's to not being single for much longer :)


  4. @Amber - Thanks for your comment. I only just saw that link to the Spotlight Saturday Blog Hop. FUN! As I write this I'm not sure who linked me but whoever it was I say "Thank heaps!" Going to check out your blog now. Love the name :)


  5. ahh, thanks for following me. following you back!

  6. @Melody-mae - your blog is gorgeous and so positive how could I not want to keep up? :)


  7. Hey, I'm a perfectionist too, but I prefer to call my messiness "organized chaos."

    And I haven't had a boyfriend (or a date) in 7 years. But I think my 40-year-old friend has us both beat - She just started dating for the first time in nearly 20 years! Needless to say, I'm happy for her :) And on top of that, the guy seems to be a sweetheart.

  8. Yup "organised chaos" is perfect!

    It's your 40 year old friend whom I want to hear words of advice from and "Don't worry. You'll meet someone. Keep you're hope. It happened for me". It's a lot harder to hear that from those that are in their early twenties and have just met someone or who married their partner in their twenties. Not that I don't appreciate the support from those that are in that category - it's just a lot harder to hear when you're 36 and still being obedient and faithful.

    I'm stoked/excited for your friend :)
