My First Award!

Lookee what I got!!

What a lovely surprise, I was pretty gobsmacked to be honest but I do truly appreciate it.

I was nominated by two awesome bloggers, both of whom I would have chose to nominate so that’s a happy coincidence! Thank you both so much for nominating me. I’ve included links to your blogs in my list below.

The rules for accepting this award are quite simple

  • Write 7 interesting facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15 amazing bloggers for the award.

I wanted to take that a little further and give a little information about why I chose my nominees. Everyone likes feedback after all!

7 interesting facts about myself

1. I’m a dreadful joker. I love banter, smart replies, puns and pranks!

2. I truly love cooking and baking. I love sharing my recipes as I absolutely believe the best way to be remembered is with good food.

3. I’m originally from England but I now live in the frozen wastes of North America. It’s been quite a culture shock. Don’t believe ANYONE who thinks the two countries are the same!

4. Are we there yet? This is HARD!

5. I am a voracious reader. My ex used to make me buy books by who wide the spine was because I read them too quickly!

6. I detest winter. I think I’m actually a lizard because I don’t even take my cardi off until it hits 75f

7. I love driving. I’m pretty sure I was a truck drivers dog in a previous life.

Phew! That’s over! On to the good bit!

    I really like it that you wrote a few words about your nominations. Makes it just that bit more extra special. Some of these people I already know and can attest that their blogs are awesome. Those that I have not met before I will definitely check out, so thanks for that.
    Oh, and thank you for the nomination and the appreciative words. It means a lot.
