Squee time!


Wooop I still get far too excited about awards!

This one was given to me by Teacher/Learner over at Whatcha Readin’, Books. Thank you 😀

Here are the rules:

– Share 7 things about yourself.
– Pass the award to 15 bloggers recently discovered. (I want to make sure it means something, so I probably won’t pass on to that many)
– Notify the blogger recipients.
– Link to the blogger who gave the award.

Ok 7 things

1) My boyfriend has just moved to Birmingham after 2 years of long distance, I am, of course, Love thrilled

2) I went to see the new Narnia film today. It was really good, probably the best yet, I’m not reviewing it on here because the only Narnia book I’ve read is The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

3) My new year’s resolution is to eat more fruit and veg, I’m doing alright. I’m using a site suggested by WordPress, Health Month, which helps turn your health resolutions into a game. It’s good to have something to answer to.

4) I finish my NVQ (in childcare) this month, I’ve had the last couple of days and tomorrow off and was planning on finishing everything up- it hasn’t been so successful (see 1 & 2)

5) I’m not sure what I want to do when I finish my NVQ, I love where I work but I wat to do an Ed. Psych masters so I really need experience with other ages too.

6) errr I am an awful procrastinator (see 4), even for things I’m doing completely by choice I procrastinate

7) I am trying to put on weight and failing, even though I’m not sure why!

I pass this on to…

Jackie at Lovely Little Shelf

As the Crowe Fies (and reads)

Sam Still Reading

There are others I could give to but I think I’vegiven them awards before so I want to stick to the new 🙂

My first award!


Squeeeeee! This has made me so excited. BookQuoter over at A Thousand Books with Quotes has given me 3 (count them, 3!) awards as I am part of her blog roll 😀 Thank you, thank you, thank you!

For this award there are a series of questions…

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do  you wish you  had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?

I don’t really blog anonymously. My posts get cross-posted to my Facebook so people who know me in ‘real-life’ can read them. I don’t let all be known on here about who I am though, so I suppose in that sense if you find me through here I am anonymous.

2. Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side:

Oh I am so stubbon, I have an inability to accept help if I know I should be able to do something. I always get annoyed at the boyfriend when he is trying to help me with computer games.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

Usually I frown at my hair because it’s being stupid, then I smile to make up for the frown!

4. What is your favourite summer cold drink?

A coffee frappecino

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?

Read of course! Or laze in front of the TV and computer.

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?

I want to be a Mum some day (not yet though!)

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?

The shy person, no doubt.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see?

The first time the boyfriend told me he loved me 🙂

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?


I have a whole blog to write about my life! I don’t update more than once a week though

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?

Reading. I don’t like talking on the phone

The two say I need to tell you 10 things about myself, so here goes:

1) I have a degree in psychology, and work in a nursery while I’m doing my NVQ in childcare. I love my job

2) I hate wearing shoes, I always take them off as soon as I get home

3) I wear hearing aids and glasses…the kids at work love to grab for them

4) I got into the internet because of Harry Potter, it’s the way I started visiting forums, and why I started my personal blog.

5) My boyfriend lives in Newcastle, I live in Birmingham- I miss him lots.

6) I finished NaNoWriMo a couple of years ago, last year I didn’t even reach 1000 words, and my completed ‘novel’ is still waiting for me to finish the first edit.

7) I started learning to drive a couple of months ago. I can’t wait till I’ve passed my test and have a car

8) I actually miss my lectures and learning about psychology- I try to replace it with psychology books but it’s not the same

9) I love coffee but can only drink Starbucks without feeling ill

10) errrrr…I don’t like fruit. I only eat purple or black grapes, green apples peeled and sliced, and pears (also peeled and sliced)

And I am going to pass these on to:

An Old Flame

The Perpetual Page Turner

Giraffe Days

Pink Sheep Cafe

I would have passed it onto A Thousand Books with Quotes too…except I’m not sure I can send them back!
