An Award from...

...the lovely Laura of Airing Cupboard Crafts / Stamping (yep, she's got two blogs LOL - I struggle keeping one on the go**he he**).

I always find it difficult to post these awards as there are normally things that one is required to do - this one is no exception groan.

I have to let you know who was thoughtful enough to have given me this award - done that - Thank you Laura...that was the easy bit done LOL

I now have to tell you 7 or 8 random things about me...this is the hard took me ages to think of stuff to write last time I was lucky enough to be given an award. I'm just gonna have to 'go for it' otherwise you could still be waiting this time next year...

1. I love books - now there's a surprise considering some of my recent posts LOL
2. I love pasta - but I prefer it in tomato-based sauces rather than cream ones.
3. I try to treat myself to 'lunch out' at least a couple of times a month. I've recently found a Pie & Mash shop fairly close to Barleylands so when I have a Monday afternoon lesson I treat myself to Pie & Mash first - yummy.
4. Coffee - I can't do without my coffee. I normally drink it black but I do love latte and during the Christmas period I just have to have a few of the Starbucks Gingerbread lattes - very fattening but oh so scrummy.
5. I do not add salt to my cooking and I don't add salt to my food - the only exception to this is CHIPS!!! If I buy a portion of chips to eat on the way home from the station I have to have salt and vinegar on them.
6. I hate being cold - I don't think there is much that could make me more grumpy than being somewhere where I am cold.
7. I love music - at school I played the recorder & was learning the clarinet (I so wanted to be able to play Stranger on the Shore...but I wasn't very good). I would have loved to have learnt the piano but I couldn't quite get to grips with both hands doing different things on the keyboard LOL I don't follow any one type of music - if I like something it doesn't matter to me whether it is classical, swing, R&B, Hip-hop or Punk.
8. I am not a good patient - if I am ill, I don't want to be fussed over but I do want someone to make me feel better - I don't like being mollicodled but then again I like to know someone cares...fickle, ain't I...LOL

The next bit is even harder - pass this award on to between 7 & 15 other folk.

I have decided that as I am celebrating over 10,000 visits to my blog I will invite the lovely folk who visit to help themselves to this award with the proviso that they link back here so that I can go and visit and find out 7 or 8 random things about them.

So there we go folks, do drop by and let me know if you have decided to play along as I would love to find out a bit more about the lovely folk that drop by.....................

Well done on another 8 things about you! I can relate to some, namely #2, #5, and #8, much to the frustration of my husband. LOL
