7 interested facts 


I was a teen mum (I was only 17 when I had my daughter!)

My favorite place in the world is Paris, France.

My phobia’s include clowns, people on stilts, lifts and false teeth!

I have three children but would love to adopt another in the (not so soon) future.

I used to be a therapist but gave up this career to have my 2nd son.

I have just passed my photography course with a distinction…WOO HOO!

As well as a micro pig, I would love a pet monkey. I would call him Marcel and he would live like a king!

(Just look at this monkey, he is scrumptious…I want to eat him up!)

Now, before PETA get on my case…let me reveal the nominees!

My Nominee’s

The Quintet of Radiance Award 


The Quintet of Radiance is a bundle of four awards…That’s right, FOUR awards!!! What more can I say, I am absolutely honored to receive such a special award – A big thank you to (one of my favourite bloggers!)


My first award of this five award bundle is The Influential Blogger award. 


Next up, is The Awesome Content Award


This one is The Inner Peace Award, I like it…it’s pretty!


and lastly, is The Sunshine Award 

So to accept these awards, I have to describe myself using the alphabet. So here goes…

A = Articulate – Or so I like to believe.

B = Blessed – I feel very blessed in life, despite the hard times I have experienced.

C = Clumsy –  I am forever walking into lampposts and falling over my own feet. Oops!

D = Dainty – I’m like a tiny ballerina in a music box! Perhaps not that small, I am 5’3!

E = Energetic – I never sit down and always have to be doing something! I’m easily bored!

F = Fighter – When I say fighter, I don’t mean kicking arse! I mean, there have been times in my life when I’ve had to be a fighter.

G = Gullible –  My husband once told me his family owned half of Tate and Lyle’s sugars royalties – I believed him! Assuming he had a BIG FAT inheritance, I perused my relationship with him (Just kidding!).

H = Humble – I’m terrible at accepting compliments. I tend to bat them away like ping-pong balls. Although, I am slowly learning to take ownership of what qualities I do have and accept more compliments! *Blushes*

I = Insecure – I am incredibly insecure.

J = Jealous – I suffer from a bad case of the green-eyed monster! It’s such a wasted emotion and yet I get so wrapped up in it!

K = Kooky – I am not your average girl. I am quirky and a little bit strange (In a good way…I think!).

L = Likable – Well, I like to think I am a likable person. If I open my mind, I can click with almost anyone, from all walks of life!

M = Mediocre – This pretty much sums me up. I am average at everything…and it annoys me!

N = Naughty – I can be rather naughty!

O = Oddball – Sometimes I think I’m the only person in this crazy little bubble of mine!

P = Passionate – When I find passions in my life, I get so wrapped up in them everything else disappears. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not!

Q = Quick – I can run pretty fast for a little one!

R = Reliable – If I make a promise, I am sure to keep it. I hate hate hate letting people down. It makes me 🙁

S = Sophisticated – I am very sophisticated and ‘grown up’. Perhaps too grown up! I am in search for my inner ‘free child’…I want to roll down hills and jump in the mud!

T = Tired – Due to my constant ‘doing stuff’ I get really tired by the end of the day. One of my favourite hobbies is SLEEPING!

U = Understanding – The majority of the time I’m understanding…Other times, I can be judgmental COW!

V = Valuable – My biggest fear is dying. This is because I feel so valuable to my families life. I am the glue that holds us together!

W = Worried – I am a natural born worrier and spend my life worrying. I need to chill THE HECK out!

X = Xylophone – Oh come on! What else was I meant to say for X. I once played the theme tune to Eastenders (hate that show!) on the xylophone at a school music concert.

Y = Youthful – Despite feeling like an 80-year-old, I am still youthful. Old at heart, doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?

Z = Zany – As I said before, I am a bit unhinged. Not your everyday cup of tea!

Now to send this quintuple award on. I hope you guys are happy with your nomination, and send it on. I won’t be offended if you don’t pass it on. I realise it’s time-consuming and not for everyone – whether you accept these awards or not…I still think YOUR FABULOUS!

…and relax!!!
