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…

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

oooh an award!


I’m thrilled to get another award. It’s nice to know that people appreciate my blog 🙂

Laural-Rain Snow has given me this Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, thank you.

Here are the rules:

1) Share 7 things about myself

2) Pass the award on to 15 bloggers recently discovered

3) Notify the blogger recipients

4) Link to the blogger who gave me the award

Right so 7 things about me

1) I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo the last 3 years. This year and last were both monumental failures but the first year I was stuck at home with a broken leg and finished before time was up. My ‘novel’ still needs some series editing though and I’m very lazy about getting it done.

2) It’s been snowing here in Birmingham over night and I find it exciting!

3) I’m a big Harry Potter fan. I am always disappointed by the films because they just don’t add up to the books but I am going to see the latest one this afternoon and am actually very excited, I think maybe because it’s something new from Harry World.

4) I love coffee but my body is very fussy about it. I can’t drink some coffees without getting ill but other makes don’t seem to bother me. My usual coffee is a hazelnut lattee but over Christmas I switch to gingerbread lattee which is the best coffee ever

5) My body thinks I’m an old person. I wear hearing aids and very thick glasses and have osteoporosis. God knows what my body will do when I’m actually old!

6) My boyfriend of 4 years lives up in Newcastle. I miss him more than I can say. I hope he finds a job down here soon

7) I’m a psychology graduate. That’s why most of my non-fiction reads are psychology related.

I can’t pick 15 bloggers but here goes….
