Memes and Awards

I have been tagged this week by several people for a meme and an award.
Firstly the Meme---I was tagged by Paula for this and I have to let you into a few of my secrets.

1----What was I doing 10 years ago--

Well I was still working selling Bernina sewing machines.
This job was a dream job for me in the beginning--all the things that I enjoyed were all in one place--sewing machines-overlockers-fabric-threads-books well what more could one want--
a better boss would have been great.
I would have stayed in that job until I died(I loved it so much)but if I had stayed there longer than the 2 years that I did it probably would have killed me in the end.
Too bad some bosses don't know how to value good staff isn't it.

2---Five things on my to do list today---

OK it's a bit late now for today as it is 8pm on Saturday night here in OZ so I will say for tomorrow---
a--go to church
b--go to the machine embroidery group at the Embroiderers guild
c--do some work on my Studio Journal
d--get fabric ready to make my CQ square for TIF challenge
e--try to get to bed before midnight

3--Snacks that I like---how long have I got to tell you.

I like Potato chips--chocolates--fruit--cheese on toast--ice cream cones----------etc-etc

4--Things that I would do if I were a Billionaire-----

Well the obvious would be to pay off the houses that my 2 eldest children have and I would buy one for my youngest son and Ebony to live in and I would give them some money for extras as well.
I would put money in a trust fund for my 4 grand daughters.
I would give money to my church to pay off the money owing on the building.
I would probably keep some for myself just in case and the rest would probably go to charity because I have all that I need in life.

5--Places I have lived----

a. Burnie in Tasmania
b. Yass in NSW
c. Canberra which is the capital of Australia and is in the ACT .

Well that's it for the meme

Now for the award---------
I was nominated for this award by both Paula and Tricia.
Thank you to both these talented ladies for nominating me for this award.

Congrats on your awards, Doreen. It was very interesting reading your answers, how unfortunate you were not to have an appreciative boss, I always thought that would be my dream job too :-)

congrats on the award. FYI I attempted to spend a scheduled 30 minutes on the exercises but after a while, feeling a bit stiff, looked at the clock and realized I'd spent nearly 5 hours. Mostly snipping bits of paper. I like the profile exercise. G'night down their in Oz.
