6 Unimportant Things

Yesterday I was tagged Olga of Where Are You... to come up with 6 unimportant things so that you can all get to know me better. I just started adding images as i thought of them, so here in reverse order of the way my brain worked ....

Chicken Tikka Masala. My absolute favourite meal, they don't really have great Indian restaurants here - unlike the U.K. - at least not as common. Take away from the Bokkarah when i get back to Bangor!

Barcelona, I spent 3 days here with my husband before we got married, we stayed outside the city though and took the train in. One day I would love to go back and stay in Hotel Gaudi.

Embroidery, I did Textile Art in College and I love all kinds of embroidery! it makes me ooh and Ahh. I don't have the patience for hand work although I have done it and know what it takes, I usually machine embroider.

The sea. I miss not living beside the sea. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore (or lapping depending on its mood) is a very calming sound to me. Also the sea air is just so much fresher than anything else. Sea, you and I have a date when I get home.

Art Nouveau. I am in love with this art movement, a lot of my personal work has its roots in this style. My parents have a beautiful mirror with the above Mucha Print on it (the one on the left) so I grew up appreciating it.

Toblerone. I love chocolate, I love Cadburys, Hersheys sucks! but if you could only have one piece of chocolate it would have to be a triangle of Tobelerone.

Well I probably have a lot more unimportant things that I could add, but that is 6 things off the top of my head. Now I am hungry and I have no Chicken Tikka Masala, but I do have Toblerone!


  1. Oh, I hear you on Tikka Masala (Indian food, in general), and I've been dreaming of going to Spain and Barcelona (and France, and Italy, etc., etc., ha!).
    Ooo... good choice on chocolates -- the Swiss do make the BEST chocolates!!! I know that, because I'm swimming in chocolates, well, not literally, but I have a growing gut to attest to all these great chocky sweetness :)

  2. That's a great list. I was given a beautiful art nouveau card by another blogger - I'll have to take a photo of it and put it on my blog, because it's my favourite birthday card of all.

  3. Thanks very much Ashley for accepting the challenge! I love Gaudi and Barcelona, I will be there in September and can't wait already... Your waves picture is so great, I love the ocean, the best is how the turquoise of water mixes with the white of foam... and the shape of the waves...I love Art Nouveau as well...we have so much in common! I have some posts about it if you are interested:


Thanks for reading my blog and posting a comment...... Drop in any time you're passing! Ashley xxx
