I have received an award from the lovely Jacey at Coffee n Crochet thank you ! I love her blog and the crochet creations , charity shop finds, hedgerow foraging and scrummy cakes..... a real mixed bag of a blog....
now I have to do 3 things...
thank the award giver...... check!
tell you 7 interesting things about myself.... oh crumbs!
and give the award to 15 fellow blogger's..... okaly dokaly!
now let me see!
even though I have always stated "team player" on all my CV's I really much prefer to get on and do a job by myself... firm believer in " if you want something done properly.... do it yourself!"
Having 3 older brothers I have always veered away from being a "girly girl" but I have in the past year or 2 I have accepted that I love pretty things... and am starting to be the real me... pleasing myself rather than anyone else....
I use to be totally ambidextrous and could write perfectly with both hands... when I was little my teachers told me to only write with my right hand but I still do most things with either hand...
I have a fear of heights but would love to go up in a hot air balloon
I can roller skate, ski, trampoline, ballroom dance, ride a bicycle and swim
(not all at the same time though!)
I cannot stand Marmite... but I love Mr P enough to make him a Marmite sandwich
I love Reese's Nutrageous bars, if I find them in a shop I buy 3 or 4 and hide them at home...
now for the 15 lucky award winners.... let me see!
