We've been Tagged

Posted by Rosie

....Twice!! Firstly a while back by The Cottage Smallholder.

The rules of this Tag are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

As Eco-Gites is written by both Simon and me I have changed the 6 things slightly. Below are 6 facts about the two of us but I have not said which fact belongs to which person. Post a comment or email us which facts belong to whom and I'll send a random winner a small, as yet, unchosen gift from France. Entries by Nov 30th please.

1. One of us was brought up in the Cotswolds, the other in Chistlehurst.
2. We both have land based qualifications. But who has Agriculture and Environmental Science and who has Practical Habitat Management?
3. One of us has blue eyes, the other hazel.
4. One of us has travelled far more than the other but only only one of us has been to Norway and only one has been to Portugal.
5. One of us gets sea-sick, the other of course doesn't.
6. Given a bit of spare time who would pick up a sudoku and who a french crossword?

And the second tag was a Tree of Happiness from Joanna's Food Blog:

Similar rules but this time you have to list six things that make you happy:

Well these are mine (which blogger is insisting on double spacing for some reason):

1. Seeing the first vegetable seedlings emerging from the spring soil

2. Ponds - I could sit and watch them and all they life they support for hours

3. Friends - an email, letter, phone-call or visit from friends near and far

4. A home cooked meal of home-produced food

5. The ever changing seasons

6. Skiing - OK - so it took until I was 40 to have a go but I'm hooked.

Now for the blogs. I love reading those in the blog roll so I have picked 3 at random from there and 3 others I pop into less frequently but still enjoy:

Don't feel you have to participate if you don't want.Thanks to Cottage Smallholder and Joanna who did though!!
