Next, send them an e-mail or let them know by commenting on their blog that they have been tagged. They are then encouraged to select 5 different bloggers and to tag them.Here are the things to blog about and my answers:

What were you doing 10 years ago?
1998? I was still working as the Personal Assistant to the General Manager of an Airline.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

I was trying to sell my bookshop which finally closed end of March.

Five snacks you enjoy:

1) Cakes

2) Bougatsa

3) Tyropita

4) Crisps


Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

What kind of millionaire: A Euro, Dollar, Pound, Yen, or Chinese Yuan Renminbi? Just joking. I prefer to be a Euro millionaire.

1) Bring all my relatives and friends to Greece (Business Class fares, de Luxe hotel accommodation, VIP treatment to all of them. Is one month enough?

2) When they would leave, give each one of them a big fat cheque.

3) Hire someone to do the housework, so that I could cook and blog about it without having to worry who would clean up the mess. (I would also get a laptop because although we have six computers at home, my sons have the laptops).

4) Reserve, a small amount only 100.000 Euros for our old age needs. With that amount I think we could have anything we want.

5) Remaining would go to only one Charity for abused children.

Five bad habits:

1) Who likes mentioning bad habits! When it’s cold, I sleep with my socks on.

2)I only wash the dishes once a day and that’s after lunch. That’s when I have enough dishes to fill in the washing machine.

3) I drink a lot of Greek coffee. Although they are supposed to be served in small cups, I drink them in mugs and I drink three mugs a day.

4)I’m an Aries and I always act impulsively, only to regret it later on.

5)My worse habit is that I cannot live without something sweet.

Five things you like doing:

1) Listening to Music while blogging
2) Blogging when listening to music
3) Painting and listening music
4) Cooking and Baking and listening to music
5) Reading (that’s the only time I don’t listen to music)

Five things you would never wear again:

1) Shorts. I’m too fat and too old for shorts

2)Dresses. I stopped wearing dresses years ago.

3) Stockings. I wear knee-high nylon socks.

4)High Heels. Back problem.

5) Fake jewelery. In fact I don’t really care about real jewelery either.

Five favorite toys:

1) My computer

2) My camera

3) My Kenwood Mixer

4) My cat. I love playing with her.

5) I can’t think of a fifth one.

For those who won’t reveal their secrets and refuse to play forget the Trip to Greece and the big fat cheque!!!

    Ι don’t know what’s happening with the comments lately. Some comments do not appear when they arrive and stay hidden in the control panel. I only get to see them when I have to do something at the Control Panel and that’s whey Jenn’s comment now appears before Nuria’s and Emiline’s.

  15. Ivy

    I’m glad you will be playing along with us and sharing your small secrets.

  16. Elly

    Thanks for sharing some things about yourself, Ivy! It’s always nice to know more about people whose blogs I read 🙂
