Rules of the meme. Respond and rework. Answer questions on your own blog. Replace one question. Add one question. Tag 8 people.


  1. Hi Kate, so glad your blog is no longer in Arabic! Was a bit too much of a challenge ...looking forward to the book, mine has been *"&%$ delayed but am trying to stay calm. Maybe I will try your 5 positive things list, though 5 seems bit much!

  2. OK I did it

  3. Hi Kate,

    Hmm. Am a bit confused by the tagging thing myself, but I've been tagged by a few and am trying to get round to doing a list too! Think tagging is just mentioning them at the end of the post, linking to their blogs and then leaving a comment on their blogs saying you've tagged them. Don't think there is a specific 'tag' button!! Although that would be easier...

    No point tagging you at the end of mine because you've already done it here....You don't want to go through the agonies of writing another list do you??

    Right, am off to write my list. Finally. It's only taken me about a week!

  4. I'm just doing it now :) Tagging just means you choose some blogs put a link on from yours and let them know in their comments that you've picked them. Hope that helps?

  5. Just wanted to say hi, Dulwich Divorcee was talking about you in the airport, wish I'd bought your book instead of the crappy one I got!


  6. I can't wait to read your book!

  7. Thanks Erica and `Margarita - its not officially out until next Thursday but would love you to read it. xx
