Real Neat Blog Award

DelFonte has nominated me for the ...





Thank you for nominating me, DF!




 The rules for the Real Neat Blog Award are ...

1)  Put the award logo in your post 
2)  Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you 
3)  Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs
4)  Let them know you nominated them


DF asked :


1) If there was space left in your wardrobe, where would you love to go shopping?
Hm, I love the 40s and more so the 50s, Pinup-style and Rockabilly style dresses. But my only real petticoat dress is long gone by now. So, I'd like to have some of that, and would go to Berlin to have one or two dresses custom made there, because I know a dressmaker there and she is awesome in sewing these styles. One online alternative are for example Lindybop dresses which I could order, but I am still not in shape for that and wait what other surprises this year might bring. ... Biscuits, anybody?


2) Which side of the road do you drive on and have you ever driven on the "wrong" side (ie gone abroad and driven). If you haven't, would you cope?
Ooohhhh, scary moments come to mind! On the continent I am supposed to drive on the right. It has happened pretty often that I drove on the left side on the continent after visits to England (I have to re-adapt!!!). And in England it has happened too, I started on the right side, but there I was stopped by hubby and I am no longer allowed to be the driver there. Ever. Too dangerous he says! 
Instead, as a pedestrian I have repeatedly almost been run over right after arriving in England and later after being back in Hamburg, and that was always because I was so used to looking at the wrong side when I wanted to cross the road. So, right at the beginning and right after a visit at my in-law's, it is actually really dangerous for me to cross any street, or to use the car.


3) If ability was no hindrance, which language in the world (past or present) would you like to learn and why?
It would be one of the Scandinavian languages (probably Norwegian or Swedish), because I love the area and if I were better at one of them, I could understand much more of the others. But I wouldn't mind to brush up my French either, because I love the sound of it so much.


4) If you could go to any art gallery or museum in the world, which paintings would you pick to put up in your house? No more than three, don't be greedy!

 Monet's Garden at Vetheuil (not in a museum, part of a private collection, so doesn't count)



William Turner, Rain Steam and Speed, The Great Western Railway, National Gallery, London



Edgar Degas, La Toilette, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg



Johannes Vermeer, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Mauritshuis, The Hague


The list of awesome paintings could go on forever!


5) If you were told to go door to door to sell kink/TTWD to a vanilla stranger, what would be the one thing you think is the most important to convey. 
That everything about kink and TTWD is about communication and consent. And from that the rest will follow. The way we communicate goes so far beyond anything I have known before hubby, and it is an important part of what keeps us so close together.
 

6) Sex in a shower, hot tub or outdoor pool - any preferences?
Shower! I mean, if the pool was an ocean with a sandy beach, summertime, I'd choose that, because doing things there is awesome, but otherwise the shower for sure. Some of the hottest moments we had were there.


7) What is the most romantic thing your partner has ever done for you?
This is only difficult because there are several things to choose from (sunset moments, date times, holding hands, ...). Maybe this sounds really silly, but when he does things for me, when I can see clearly that this is just for me, it is all it takes. So, actually last year during pregnancy was the most romantic time of my life, because I had so needy times which he anticipated and he really did things for me so that I also felt his care in physical ways, it is more than just being attentive. Haha, the endless sex that I needed in 2014 is an example. 
But there is one moment that sticks out, it was that a few moments after Tilda was born he said that he was proud of me and that he loved me. He was so serious about it and this was so heartwarming that it makes me cry every time I think about it. Like now. :)


 


My questions are :

1. What non-physical attribute do you enjoy most in a partner?

2. How do you feel when others start flirting with your partner?

3. What's your special talent?

4. What makes you feel most alive?

5.  Is there anything about yourself you would change?

6.  What is your biggest fantasy?

7. Kink - o - metre question: on a scale of 1 (vanilla) to 10 (kinkiest kinkster ever) where do you see yourself?

  1. Hey Nina ~
    Thank you so much for the nomination! Very sweet of you. :)
    I love the art work you chose - I would have chosen very similar paintings. My teenage daughter also loves the same dress style as you mentioned - it's a really cute style. Me, I'm more understated lol. And I absolutely love your most romantic answer - it's often the little unexpected things more than the big overtures that melt my heart too.
    hugs,
    Cali

    1. Hi Cali, I love bright colours, so I could made a long list of Monet's paintings alone. But there are so many other amazing painters I did not want to see unmentioned. I wish I had a lot 50s style clothes, because I love that style and I am sure that your daughter makes real fashion statements with her style. Currently I do wear very simple and practical dresses, anything easy to clean from baby food is good. :)
      From what hubby does for me and really only because it is me, I know that he is romantic too, and this feels wonderful in small things too.

      hugs

  2. Thank you for your answers. I love your choice of paintings, especially the Turner. You do sound quite risky on the wrong side of the road, but if you're driving a left hand drive on the wrong side of the road, that's tricky. I prefer local cars, helps with visibility.
    hugs

    1. Hi DF, I love Turner, if you had not restricted the list so much I would have added Constable too, because I like his paintings as well. Oh, and the wrong side of the road has been a big problem, not intentionally, I would never use the wrong side willingly. Well, I am left/right challenged in general, which is no excuse, I know. As a pedestrian my best way of avoiding trouble is double-checking both sides before crossing any road. As long as nothing happens, it might sound funny, but when these things go the wrong way .... no thanks. Thank you for the great questions.

      hugs

    1. Hi Roz, thank you so much, I believe that ttwd and kink cannot really work well without communicating about everything. Suits me, I needa lot of repetition until things sink in. :)
      Ha, DF made it difficult, because I had to choose only three paintings! About the most romantic moment, this is where I start daydreaming. Can I say that it was loaded with love, or does that sound silly? :)

      hugs

    1. sub hub, I am happy that I could nominate you and that you enjoy being nominated. And if I forgot anybody, it is embarrassing for me. Besides, I did not intend to disparage anyone who was on my list at all, far from it (!) but I am very sorry if it came over that way and apologize for that.

      hugs

      XOXO
