A Fabulous Award

Sister Alisha at Thoughts Unchecked and Sister Hijabee in DC have honoured me by both kindly awarding me this lovely award and meme in one. It looks like fun, so I will join in:

Rules of the Award:

  • List five current obsessions.
  • Pass the award on to five more fabulous blogs.
  • On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well.
  • Don’t forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. Blogging – every now and again I go through a lull when I am not feeling very inspired and wonder if I can bother to blog, but at the moment I am enjoying it again. It’s a shame then that events (and little people) have been conspiring to keep me away from the computer.

2. Crafting – How I love getting all my stuff out, organising it, playing around with the gems, ribbons, stamps, pretty papers and embellishments. I know this is turning into an obsession when every time the other half or mother-in-law walks in, I pretend I’m just putting the stuff away and there are paper-trimmers stashed in various locations around my bedroom.

3. Booting – Every sunny Sunday of summer, I, hubby and the brothers-in-laws crawl into the car nice and early leaving the kids fast asleep in the care of their gran and head to one of the Essex boot-sales in search of bargains. It’s a running joke that we all act as if we are not bothered and are only going along to keep the other boot-nuts company and stop them from buying anything useless, not because we really want to.

4. Reading – This is not just my current, but my life-long obsession (post – Why I Love books). Books, newspapers, internet, back of the cereal packet, I’ll read anything.

5. Cooking – I have always hated cooking, but I have decided to learn, to get good at it and to enjoy it whether I like it or not. I have been trying lots of news things (admittedly many, like Faluda and Haleem, are out of a packet), trying out recipes from the net and from my cookbooks and even sitting and reading through cookbooks, in particular Delia Smiths three books entitled “How to Cook” which start off by telling you how to boil an egg. I WILL get good at this!

In turn, I award:

Share My Thoughts on Day to Day Challenges (especially because the sister can REALLY cook)
Hijabi Apprentice
Shaalom 2 Salaam: A Muslimah's Journey From Judaism to Islam
Islamic Unit Studies
And anyone else who fancies a go at the meme.
