Of weekend coffee share and versatile awards


If you were having coffee with me, I would say hello its been awhile, I have ever so missed your visits. Now I am busy playing catch up and replying to last year’s comments.

How is the new Year treating you, will this year be it? And resolutions how they coming along? My resolution is to not make a resolution….. *made, broken and kept in one breath*

My year officially begins in February because I am a February baby my star sign is Pisces if you cant do the astrology math or is it astronomy I forget.

While I was away I was nominated for various blogging awards and I decided to just deal with them in one epic sweep because I am versatile like that. That would explain why I was twice nominated for the versatile blogger award by Sinawo who takes her Baby Steps HERE and Yvonne-Michelle who muses over a pair of dimples HERE.


I was also nominated for a Liebster award by the Impossible journey blog.


Thank you all so much for thinking of dear ol me, these things are really a fun way to share more about  yourself so grab a cuppa of your favourite beverage and put your feet up and could learn a thing or seven about me.

If you are having coffee with me I would be answering seven questions:


  1. Cake mix or from scratch?

When I bake, I always bake from scratch, cake mix feels like cheating, its like buying takeaway and microwaving it and then saying I cooked. If you were having coffee with me I would offer you a slice of cake which I baked. I love the anxiety of waiting for the cake to come out hoping it doesn’t flop, but if it does you can always cover it with icing.


  1. Chickens or eggs?

Chickens obviously, I am a breast and thighs man, strictly speaking about chicken, I mean eggs have got no soup. But I do suffer through a raw egg every morning before my workout session… The things I do this body. I love to bake chicken in the oven.

  1. Do you exercise regularly?

Absolutely I have a routine, very hardcore, all I need now is a reason to walk around shirtless like those TV hunks who drink their coffee shirtless *kisses the guns* I should be fitness instructor. I would post a pic but I shy *hides*


  1. Paper books, e-books, or audio books?

I am old fashioned, give me old fashioned books made from the blood of trees and I will read it while leaning beneath the shade of tree whispering to it you are next, (the tree not the book) Maybe an e-book if it has special page turning effects such as it makes page rustling noises as you turn the page, and has the musky smell of printed paper, maybe I would consider an audio book if Morgan Freeman does the reading.


  1. Window seat or aisle?

Window seat. Why anyone will anyone would willingly pick the aisle seat beats me. Unless they are tryin to impress someone, that’s the only reason would trade places. I want to look outside enjoy the view, see the clouds like at the people who look like ants from up here and if the worst should happen I want to see the plane crash, watch the ground come up to embrace us, morbid curiosity or is it curious morbidity you tell me.


  1. Where is your favorite vacation destination?

Its not one place, I want to see the whole world not just one corner of it. If I had all the money in the world I would not build a multi-million dollar mansion, nope, I would have one tiny room in every city in the world.


  1. What do you wish everyone knew about you?

That I really have no idea what I am doing, I don’t know what I want but I am slowly figuring out what I don’t want, I think that’s the purpose of life if you ask me.

I shall post up my nominees eventually but in the mean time hope your weekend was great, thank you for stopping by and having virtual coffee with me.






  1. So. Interesting. Nice to learn a bit more about you.
    I don’t bake. At all. (My choice.) Don’t exercise. At all. (Not my choice.) But agree with you on the window seat and I love the feel of a “real” book in my hands. Nothing like it. Also, visiting the world. ❤️ I don’t think anyone truly knows exactly what they’re doing. Some of us are just a little more unsure.

  5. Congrats on your nominations! I actually cheered when I read you were Pisces :). Can you guess why? My birthday is in the 2nd week of March, and you were right, it’s astrology. Great to know more about you. I won’t go so far as to say I have that hard body, but I do value exercising everyday. I haven’t reached the point where I enjoy it, but I do it every morning, and it has become easier. 🙂 I also bake from scratch, because they don’t sell my bakery faves where I dwell. I good with either seat, but prefer the window, unless it’s a long flight and I’ve too many liquids. Hahaha. I always said if I had the money, I would travel the world. I love all books. When traveling though I’m taking my iPad so I can carry many. 😉

    1. hey there fellow Pisces
      *does happy dance*
      Great to learn about you too. ^_^
      healthy body=healthy mind, yes? hahaha I dont think it gets enjoyable as such unless you have some sadist tendencies, but it gets easier and it becomes routine and the benefits ofcourse you get more confident in your own body, when someone looks at you, you know they are thinking wow beautiful people deserve to get stared at and you smile and wave lol
      What are your fave types of cake? do tell.
      Life hack try not to take too much of fluids on a long flight or trip hahahahaha
      yey to being a book lover *hi5* was just stalking your goodreads list

      1. My favorite is my own concoction. It’s dubbed sweetbread. Make with lots of grated coconuts, raisins, currants, cherries, 1 egg, vanilla essence, ground flaxseeds, butter, almond milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and of course flour. No sugar needed with all those fruits :). Yep, it really became easier and made me feel great about my body and image. 😉 LOL@ stalking my goodreads list.

      2. That seems like a rich sorta bake,…. but if I tried it would have to skip out on the raisins. I love raisins but only as snacks lol in baked goodies not so much, they taste awkward….
        Raisinless reasonless cakes whoop whoop lol

      3. I think they moved to my newer post hahaha so its ok, besides they can always jump in and tell us how to bake something with half it covered in raisins and the other half without

      4. I forgot baking powder for the sweetbread. lol. Also I was talking about exercising becoming easier, and a great self-esteem boost. I need to re-read before hitting send.

      5. hahaha I figured you were talking about exercise becoming easier… or could have been about baking but then how would backing improve your self-esteem hmmmm
        I do that sometimes hitting send without checking only to realise that what I wrote is rather vaguely ambiguous

  6. Hi Beaton. Well done on your awards. Like you, I like to bake from scratch, and peer out of the window seat of the plane if I can! And a real book wins every single time. Your answers made me laugh, and smile.
