Five things I like to do

Lesley, over at her artistic blog has given me an award, "Circle of Friends" which I am honoured to receive!

Now I have to list five things I like doing, and pass this award to 10 friends.

The first bit is easy:

1. Reading. I can never stop. If all else fails, I read the labels on the sauce bottles! But I like good detective stories (not the creepy sort, and not too much of the sex and violence for its own sake!) non-fiction historical accounts, old recipe books, home-making, archeology magazines - ooh! almost anything!

2. Cooking. I love making cakes, although we hardly ever eat them!

3. Reading and contacting all my blog friends - all of you!

4. Walking (as far as I am able) on the hills on a lovely sunny day, or along a deserted beach

5. Visiting my family and extended family wherever they are - Daughter, son-in-law, grandsons, great granddaughter, sister, brother-in-law, etc.

Now the diffiocult part - how can I choose just 10 friends? Please, if you count yourself my friend, copy the logo on the right hand side, and put it on your blog, and then tell us the 5 things you like doing, and pass the award on.

PS. If awards aren't your thing I won't be offended if you ignore all this!

What a lovely list Gilly. I may take it up but will be away for a few days, so I'll pop back in when I get back to see who else will be having a go! A x

Happy Saint Valentine's Day Gilly! I enjoyed reading your list. I, too,love to bake cakes (cookies, pies, breads, et cetera) -- big, dense chocolate cakes with chocolate frosting. But since I also love to eat them, I seldom bake them!!! I also love to just be outside -- when I golfed I'd find myself getting lost in just being out doors and forgetting my game!

Congrats on the award, Gilly. I enjoyed reading your list. I like to bake cakes, too, and we DO eat them!!

I have pretty much the same things I love. Only I don't have much time for reading and blogging at the moment as I am working full time at the moment. But I will find some space from time to time

Well done on receiving the award! I already have this award but to receive it twice is a bonus. So thank you. The five likes is a problem - mine are pretty much the same as yours. Will have to put my thinking cap on.

You have pretty much created my list, I would exchange the cake baking for quilt making, but I'm right there with you on the other things I like to do.
