An award... for me?

Oh my goodness
Oh my goodness
Oh my goodness

I have been awarded and award !
my first ever award as it so happens
Thank you so very much to the delightful Emily over at Unravelled
her blog is very inspirational
she is so friendly and sweet too
she made me feel so welcomed into blog land
thank you Emily 

 *** Well here it is ***
(in my head there is now a drum roll)

The slight downside to this award is that I need to tell you lovely guys
  ten interesting facts about me
I never realised that I was quite so dull  ;o)

Here goes (please don't judge!)

* I LOVE aeroplane food - I really do

* When I was little (I think around 5) my parents were having some work done on our house
and the stairs were taken out leaving a huge hole (health & safety alert)
my older brother (who should have known better - tut tut) was chasing me
I fell down the hole, divine intervention saved me
well actually a nail in the wall did
as I plummeted down the nail got caught in my jumper
  I was left dangling there, in tears, until I was lowered to the ground 

* I trained as a beauty therapist before having my children

(hope I'm not boring you)

* My favourite chocolates are Anton Berg cherry in rum
you should try them, they are DIVINE and irresistible and marzipany and cherry'y and rummy...oooohhh
(and BIG)

Told you they were irresistible!

 * My favourite colour is pink although I have recently fallen in love with green
and can't actually choose between them, good job they look pretty together  

* I cannot function without good coffee in the morning , two cups.

* My all time favourite film is Chocolat


* My brother (the same one who chased me to the big hole) was offered 10 camels for me in Tunisia
I could tell he paused to consider

* My favourite food in the WHOLE world is cake
I'm not fussy as long as it's homemade
(Hungarian goulash comes a close second)

* I love rain
(as long as I am not out in it...frizzy hair and all that)

ahhh...made it

I now have the honour of passing this award on...
I am going to award it to Louise
her blog Poppy is a feast for the eyes
she is an AMAZING photographer and gardener 
and an all round lovely lady
and she makes me laugh alot 

thank you again Emily

more soon
