Three Things About Me

1) I used to live in Greece, and (not so) secretly wish I still did!

2) I never went to University, but I gained professional qualifications to post-graduate level.

3) I don’t have, nor do I want to have, children. This is something which seems to blow people’s minds cartoon style. The concept of choosing to be childless is something many people really struggle with.

Shananigan’s Questions

1) Favourite super-villain and why?

Possibly a cliche answer but Harley Quinn, I always felt an affinity with her, I think because of the mental health issues! I also love her sarcasm, sense of humour, and brute force. She also loves doing crazy things with her hair like me!

2) If you were to write an novel, what genre would it be?

I’d like to say Fantasy, I would do anything to have a Fantasy novel in me but the fact is I’m not an author, as well as I can write I don’t have a book in me, I’m not that kind of writer, and I’m fine with that. It gives me more time to read!

3) If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would be the first thing you’d do with your winnings?

Move to either Greece or Australia, seriously we would be gone faster than a flash of lightning!

4) Wine or beer?

Neither! I’ve been sober for just over five years now after finally beating my alcoholism. Before it would have been beer though! 😉

5) If you had to swap your nose with any other body part, what part would you choose?

Haha So funny! Hand, I think having a hand on your face would come in quite handy! (you see what I did there?!) 😀


1) The Quiet Knitter

2) Rather Too Fond of Books

3) Between The Lines

4) Little Bookness Lane

5) The Legacy of Zyanthia

6) Everywhere and Nowhere

7) My Chestnut Reading Tree

9) Postcard Reviews

10) Cleopatra Loves Books

11) Chat About Books

12) Novel Gossip

13) Ali The Dragon Slayer

14) Ronnie Turner

15) Books Vertigo & Tea

My Questions

1) What is the first book you remember reading?

2) If you were stuck on a desert island what 5 books would you take?

3) Which bookish destination would you most like to visit?

4) If you could have dinner with any literary character who would you choose?

5) What makes you bored?

Link to Best Post

Here is a link to the post which has had the most views in the past three months, wasn’t really sure how to determine “best”!


Published by


I'm BrizzleLass, I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. This is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me. I enjoy walking, PlayStation, reading, heavy metal, and spending time with my Niece.

  1. Thanks for tagging me, Claire. Loved reading your post. I’m hopeless at doing these but will try and get to it very soon. Your link will be on my awards page regardless.

    1. Yay! I do love meeting others in the club. I’m the same, my Mum tells me I was 4 the first time I said something about not being a mummy when I grew up and I remember always knowing I didn’t want children.

      1. I was never that interested in baby type dolls and prams growing up, compared to my sister who has 3 children. Thankfully I married someone who felt the same as me. What I find odd is people assume you must dislike children or be lacking in some way. I’m perfectly happy, I don’t dislike children I just chose not to have them.


      2. Yep exactly the same, i gave any dolls etc i was given to my Sister she says had two of everything! Like you i married someone who felt the same as me which meant no drama about it within the marriage and I have no problem with children in fact I adore my Niece, which kind of threw my family as they thought I hated children 😂, I’m just not interested in having one of my own.


  2. Fun! I did not know about Greece 😉 Cannot say I blame you for wanting to return, especially now. I would love to visit. Forgive me if I am horribly slow at completing this. I am that bad blogger with a backlog of tags.. sigh.
