FF (45) & TGIF (28)

This week's question feature is from
Shanan @ The Book Addict

Q: It’s Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are Thankful for – blogging related of course! Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?

My Answer: I am thankful to all my wonderful followers - thanks for sticking with me. :D

I am thankful to all the other wonderful blogs and bloggers out there, with all the support, inspiration, encouragement and awesomeness that comes with them.

There are so many bloggers I visit regularly and and very Thankful for but I'm not going to list them as they should know who they are. (if you think you are one of them then you probably are) This is in some ways a chicken out as I know I would forget someone from the list then feel guilty!!!

I will mention that I am thankful to Parajunkee for holding such an awesome meme and bringing everyone closer together.

In terms of books I am grateful for them all, of course I enjoy some books more than others, but to have the chance to hold that book in your hand (in whatever format you have it) is a blessing, one that sets our imaginations on fire, calls out to us, makes us feel. It's magical. So I'm thankful to them all.

This Friday's Question:
When You're Not Reading: What occupies your time 
when your nose isn't stuck in a book?

My Answer: I'm sure I've answered this question many times in slightly different ways, but OK. My life is crazily hectic I'm amazed I have time to read at all. My time is divided between work, sports, writing, friends/family.

During the week I work 9-6 each day. Then in the evenings I go to one of these clubs: zumba, trampolining, jujitsu and high board diving. During the weekends I work one Saturday a fortnight, if I'm not at work I spend time with my family or catch up on the week's TV. This is also when I do a lot of my reading. At the moment I am doing NaNoWriMo so a lot of my spare time is taken up with that.

This weekend I have a Jewellery Party at my friends house and an extra diving session on Sunday so may fall behind even further. But it's worth it :D

Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

Jeez I can't imagine being that busy, as long as it keeps you happy that's the important thing, here's mine

I think it's awesome that, despite being so busy, you have time to read books and blog! :)

Sonia said...

A jewellery party? What does that even entail? I want to go to a jewellery party, haha! :)

I don't think I would be able to list all the bloggers I'm thankful for either... I would probably go back to edit the document and add new people like every 5 minutes.

New follower!

Thanks Alexa :D

Story Queen - one of my friends makes her own jewellery, it's really good stuff. So she hosts a party where we can look at all her items and buy what we want, whilst having a chat, laugh, dance and drink (if wanted, i personally don't drink) It's always great fun.
Hehe - that's why i decided not to list them, glad you agree. Thanks for stopping by. :D
