Kim and I don't do this much anymore but we were tagged by Erin from Design for Mankind to name 8 things we're grateful for.

Kim's 8 are:
1 - loving family and friends and my plethora of cats
2 - the best blog partner EVER
3 - supportive fellow bloggers
4 - Tim Hortons
5 - Starbucks latte
6 - Etsy
7 - "Eating for Life" by Bill Phillips
8 - skinny jeans and ballet flats

Mine are:
1 - my husband's health is returning after a long and very trying illness :)
2 - the best blog partner EVER
3 - good friends
4 - that first cup of tea at 5.00am
5 - that my local thrift store hates everything I like so it's always dirt cheap
6 - freedom of choice
7 - a good black pen and an empty page to draw on
8 - Irish whiskey after a hard day

The blog is doing so well at the moment thanks to all of you out there and that's number 9 - you.


Oh no tagged!

Drey from Bijou Kaleidoscope, a fellow Aussie design blogger tagged us today to tell 7 things about ourselves. So as Kim is fast asleep I'll jump in first and do 3. Kim you don't mind doing 4 do you?

1. That's Mickey. Kelvin (my husband) and I share our 2 bedroom apartment with him. I love him to death not just because he is such a good looking beast but because he is also my husband's guide dog. Kelvin lost his sight at 18 due to an accident.

2. Enough about my husband! This is supposed to be about me. I used to be a medical student but I saw the light and became an interior designer.

3. I was in Berlin (on a surgical elective) when the wall came down and I can remember when man walked on the moon. Now that last one really ages me!

And as my gift to the blogosphere I decline to tag 7 (or 3)others. (Does anyone else delete those chain emails? My trash is full of them!) But this was fun as long as it is only 3 things. Your turn Kim.

Gee thanks Jo. Ok here goes:

1. When I started university, my folks moved to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. Luckily, my twin sister and I got to stay behind. Spent 3 summers and 1 spring break there though. Was quite an experience...loved the almost 24 hours of daylight.

2. I was born in the wrong country - maybe even the wrong continent. This is because I hate winter with every ounce of my being. I've lived here in Ottawa all my life and although the winters have gotten better over the years, I find it harder and harder to live through them.

3. I would die without pasta, or carbs in general. I blame being half-Italian for that.

4. The 3 years I spent in college taking computer science were the worst 3 years of my life. It was hell and I cringe everytime I think about it. It was WAY too much work. I did more work in one semester there than I did in the whole 3 years I spent getting a bachelor degree in Psychology.
