I can now pass this award onto another 5 blogs that I love - now this is the hard part as I love all the blogs that I've listed on the thingy on the right of the screen and more that I haven't got round to adding. Mummy has passed it on to a couple of my favourite blogs, so that helped a bit, but I'm going to pass it on to: Lane (who was one of the first people to comment on my blog and was so lovely that it gave me the confidence to keep posting), Karen (because she never fails to make me laugh, Chris (loving the paintings, as well as the words of course on her blog), Tam (because she's so clever and I want to wish her luck for her auditions, and Helen (because those prompts are so clever and I can't seem to figure out how to do them as well as she does).

Just a quick PS, I've managed to get a grip and am now in a much happier mood!


DAB said...

Great list. Glad you're in a better mood today :) TFx

Michelle said...

Love your list Debs. Glad you are feeling better. I have moods like that, inexplicable and frustrating but sometimes just because there is a Y in the day I feel like it.
Hope the writing made it better!

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

tom foolery - thanks, I get on my own nerves when I feel like that. Thankfully it doesn't happen too often.x

mickmouse - thanks, that's so funny. The writing did make it better too. x

Lane Mathias said...

Why thank you Debs! I shall do that in a couple of days when I've caught up a bit.

Glad you're feeling better now (and I'm happy you kept posting too:-)

Jayne said...

Great list Debs :) I'm glad you're feeling better. Not long until Saturday now! Looking forward to meeting you - if only I can figure out who people are! I have a feeling I'll be sitting there on my own just wondering who's who! lol

HelenMWalters said...

Thanks, that's lovely. I'll do the question thingy in the next couple of days. Glad you're feeling better xxx

Chris Stovell said...

Gawd, I'd forgotten 'Love for Lydia', I'm glad you reminded me! Thanks so much for the award - i've had a couple of stupidly manic days so will catch up and collect tomorrow - I should give it to Tom really, shouldn't I?!!

Jenny Beattie said...

Great list. I really enjoyed that.

Amanda said...

Fab list, Debs. x

Tamsyn Murray said...

Cor, thanks Deb! I'm honoured :-)

Great answers, I had fun doing mine, too.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

lane - my pleasure and thanks.

I thought your post today was most thought-provoking.

mummy - thanks.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to go on Saturday, which is a shame as I'd love to go. I look forward to hearing all about it.

helen - my pleasure, I look forward to reading your answers.

chrish - glad you like it and keep posting those pictures please.

Am thoroughly enjoying Love for Lydia too, it's just as good as I remember.

jj - thanks.

amanda - thank you.

tam - my pleasure, I loved your answers.

DJ Kirkby said...

Great list, I might use it for a lazy Sunday post.

Leigh Russell said...

I find my mood is far more even since I started writing. Most of my villains have a tiny detail - hair colour or height for example - in common with someone who's annoyed me. It's great therapy, and no one need ever know. (Except you.) Although the killer in my first book has nothing to do with anyone I've ever met. He just appeared in my mind and grew on the page. Weird when you read the book and find out what he's like. No relation to me at all! !!! I'm very boring and normal in real life. Honest!

But there's me blathering on about me and you've been feeling down in the dumps. Glad you're feeling more cheerful. Keep writing!

I'd be a follower of your blog if I knew how to!

I have a horrible feeling I'm about to enter this comment twice. Sorry if that's the case...

Leigh Russell said...

No, it's just there once. I'm so cackhanded with all this technology. Just don't know what I'm doing.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

dj kirkby - you should, it's a fun one to do.

leigh russell - I agree writing is a great leveller mood wise. I've been mulling over a plot for a crime novel, so maybe I should get on with it, how therapeutic that would be.

Fionnuala said...

Hi Debs,
Karen passed this to me so I went back to yours to have a look and note you have so many same answers to me! I think I've asked you this before but my memory is crap so I'll ask again - do you mind if I link your blog on mine? x

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

fionnuala - I shall have to have a look. I think you did ask me this before, and of course you're more than welcome to link my blog to yours, thanks.

Kaye Manro said...

This is the coolest thing! Love the questions. And those one word answers too, what a good idea.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

kaye manro - it was fun, but harder than I would have thought trying to answer in just one word.
