Personality Series: What I am like as a partner.

According to my Jung personality test results, As a partner I am.. 

Committed, steady, and consistent.
I cannot argue with this. Once I'd committed to B I was in it for the long haul.

 Responsible, practical, and dutiful.
Yep. This certainly sounds like me.

Big on upholding and documenting traditions as direct evidence of commitment.
Of course. How else will I be able to show my children and grandchildren the love that B and I shared before they were born. :P

A pillar of strength.
I guess this is true.

 Loyal, faithful and dependable.
Always. :)

Physically expressive of my love and affection.
Well yes, but I am also VERY big on verbal declarations of love.

Known to follow along with what my partner wants.
Definitely. Otherwise we would be engaged by now. :P

Sunshine Award.

So yesterday I was awarded the "Sunshine Award" by the lovely Britt from Bee Littlequeen blog. It's been a while since I received a new award, so I figured I would post about it and pass the award on. It's also quite nice and sunny here for a Winters day, so the award is actually kinda fitting. :)

The sunshine award is awarded to bloggers who
"positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. 


How the Sunshine Award works..
- Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
- Answer the following 10 questions about yourself.
- Select 10 of your favourite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they’ve been awarded the Sunshine Award!

10 questions!
1. Favourite colour? Purple.
2. Favourite animal? Dogs, particularly Miniature Dachshunds. :)
3. Favourite number? 3.
4. Favourite drink? Filtered water. I know right, how boring am I?
5. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook.
6. Good book or good movie? Good movie. My life is too fast paced for books at the moment.
7. Your passion? Blog design, and just design in general. I love the feeling of being creative.
8. Giving or getting presents? Giving! Unless it's my birthday of course. :P
9. Favourite day? I honestly don't have one. Every day is the same for me at the moment.
10. Favourite flower? I don't really have a favourite, but I think Lisianthus's are really pretty. :)

My life lately.

Baked this awesome cake for my brothers belated 21st birthday party!

Spent some quality time with Phoebs.

Isn't she perfect?!

Ate cake and behaved like I was drunk all night.
(For the record, I was completely sober. :P)

Played celebrity heads, pictionary and charades.. and at some
stage had my photo taken posing like this. :\

Had a lazy Sunday morning with these sooky la la's.

Caught up with Dad and my step family for lunch/shopping. His partner Judy
bought myself and her daughter Abby these adorable matching hoodies. :D

They also gave me a huge stash of chocolate (only half of the stash
is pictured) as part of my belated birthday present. :P

I used some of my new washi tape to decorate
my laptop keyboard. :)

And last but not least, I had my first ever meet up with a bloggy friend
in real life! Her name is Bianca and she literally lives around the corner from
my apartment. How cool is that?! She was just as nice in person as she
has been online, and it wasn't awkward at all (at least not for me anyway!).
We didn't get any photos together because we were too busy window
shopping for the awesome pastel outfit above. I managed to score the light
coral jeans for just $30 and the mint green knit sweater for $25 from Temt.
