I've been given...

...another award.

The lovely Hazel nominated me for pop over to her blog to say hi and have a peek at what she's up to.
I have been very lucky to receive 3 of these awards now so feel greatly honoured that folk felt they wanted to nominate me. The problem with these awards is that they usually require the sharing of some facts from the nominee - that's me.

Well let me think - what can I tell you about me that I haven't already told **hummmmmmmmmmm - searches brain from something interesting**

1. I am right-handed...nothing mind-blowing there I hear you say. However, Mum says I was left-handed until I started school. No-one made me change but it is thought I just copied everyone else. Strangly enough, about the only thing I can do with either hand is iron...

2. I love chocolate but I'm not a fact, most of the time I will go for something savoury rather than sweet.

3. Give me the means to do so and I could shop for England LOL When I offered to take my neighbours daughter shopping to pick up some bits for her wedding she warned me to wear comfortable shoes as she could "shop 'til she dropped"...I wore her out.

4. If the weather is kind enough to allow washing to be pegged out on the line the items have to be pegged in a certain way so as to minimize peg-marks - a bit OCD I know but I can't help it.

5. I can not eat a sugared doughnut without licking my lips - apparently it is very difficult not to 'lick'.

6. I love pretty stationery especially notebooks so the BIA was a perfect buy for me.

7. I always wanted an older brother but got a younger sister...I was the only one amongst my school mates who was the 'oldest' - and they all had brothers who had dishy not fair!!!

8. I am not 'tea-total' but it doesn't bother me not to have a 'drink' if I go out with friends. I can't just drink for the sake of drinking - but I do rather like Baileys or, Red or Rose wine if I am going to have a drink.

Another 8 things about me - not earth shattering but at least I managed to think of 8.

Now I need to share this with 8 other folk - not so easy and some of these folk may already have been nominated, but here goes: -

1. Paula - I have never met Paula as she lives the other side of the world from me but she is a crafter & a blogger and is always there with a kind or helpful comment.

2. Lynn - Another person I have never met except in cyberspace. I'm not sure how I found her blog but I follow it with eager anticipation as I love her artistic skills.

3. Winnie - Like Paula, Winnie is there with kind comments and encouragement. We met through being on the same team during a Cybercrop on UKS and it soon became clear that we could both be completely nutty when it comes to cybercrop chat LOL

4. Eleni - Lives in Greece. We have never met except through 'the web' but we had a craft shop in common - Artbase - unfortunately we were not able to co-ordinate a visit to meet there. I love how she shares parts of her life along with her crafting.

5. Ruthie - Lives only a few miles away but again, the only place we have met is in cyberspace. It is great visiting her blog and knowing many of the places she refers to.

6. Debbie - recently returned to blogging. She is probably the person most responsible for me being a bit more adventurous with my blog - she introduced me to widgets LOL

7. Dan - If I could do a fraction of what Dan can do with some stamps and some ink I would be a very happy bunny. In the meantime I'll just gaze in amazement at his fab creations.

8. Julia - I love her sense of humour. I don't take part in her "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday" but I do visit regularly to see what she is up to at the moment and have learn't (the hard way) not to have a mouthful of coffee or anything else before I have the gist of what her post is about. Surprising how often the keyboard ended up being cleaned in the past or I had to leave the PC due to a choking fit...LOL

It has been very difficult picking just 8 names from all the fabulous blogs I visit and I would like to say if I was a bit quicker with this PC & linking lark I might have been tempted to add a few more......................................

Thanks so much!! I've recently done a widget cull with the new blog design.. Need to find some more!! I'm having to resort to using my iPhone for everything as my laptop us having a cookie crisis and won't let me access stuff. That will give me a chance to think about the award!!
