I am just so chuffed! I got two blog awards!
I got this first one from Toni! How lucky am I? Please pop over and check out her blog - she is doing a really diverse range of things on there, from mug hugs to baskets!
As with most awards, I need to tell you 8 things about me.....
1. I used to bellydance - danced at my wedding and even danced at a nightclub where there were West Ham Footballers!
2. As a family, we have 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs, a lizard, a rescue bunny, some fish, a hamster...and shhhhh another rescue hamster coming on Tuesday!
3. I used to have a horse that I owned and a horse that I loaned - both Arabs and both beautiful
4. I work in libraries, but also have a secret hankering to be an RE teacher (religious education) - I love finding out about other people's religions, even though I am not religious myself....I also would LOVE to have a faith myself.
5. I have one brother and we are both adopted (from different families)
6. I surf too much and this means I have less time to craft - which really bugs me when I do it!
7. My spiritual home is the Lake District. I spent long periods there as a child and try to get back every year - no jobs for hubby and me, else we would have been up there by now!
8. I was given some singing lessons by hubby for a birthday present and was kinda good - teacher said I had sufficient range to do opera!!! Yep - surprised me too!
Phew - that was quite hard going!
Now - I have to hand this award onto 8 other people - I havent done the counting but would like to give it to my teamies at AUD SENTIMENTS - there is a list in the sidebar and they are all very inspirational!
And my second award is from CG - you have just gotta check out her piano hinge mini books! I had never heard of them until I saw CG's blog!
Now - as I have posted my 8 things above, I wont do that again! Dont want to bore you twice!
So that leaves me to hand on this award to some other bloggers - and again, I am going to pass it onto my teamies at Delicious Doodles! Normally I would pick individual peeps - but I think this award really suits them because they are so versatile!
Thanks Toni and CG! Going to pop these awards in my sidebar now!
