So it turns out this week has been a pretty AWESOME week (despite STILL being without heating and hot water!) The glass is half full and all that!
Unshowered and colder than a furless penguin in the wind, how could you be so happy? I hear you ask.
Firstly, my ‘freezing my arse’ days are coming to an end. We are moving into our new WARM beautiful beauty of a house on the 16th of April. *Does the happy dance*.
Secondly, my daughter has got a placement at her new school (which is literally just on the doorstep of our new home!) WOO HOO! No more walking up a mountain (So, when I say a mountain I actually mean a large hill!) every day, puffing and panting more than this poor fella above!
Thirdly, My husband has a new job *More happy dancing* and erm *cough* Yes, it’s with the oil company. No more living like peasants!
Fourthly, I passed my photography course with a distinction (which probably means I should post some of my photography on here soon!) No more excuses, I promise!
Fifthly, I had a shower… and it was sooooo good! It was a charity shower, but a shower none the less. I look and feel radiant again!
Fifthly, I have some new followers. Thanks for climbing on board guys, I appreciate it… Although I expect some of you have left already, due to my over excitement about having a shower. Please come back!!! It’s not my fault my landlord is a D*** (you fill in the gaps!)
And so this brings me to some really exciting news…
This is my face right now!
I have just been nominated for the VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD (For a third time) by the lovely (and very talented) zareenn3 from http://zarinaqvi.wordpress.com/ If you get the chance, please check it out – she’s one of my faves! I’m so sorry it has taken me so long. I’m surrounded by a box village right now…but better late than never…
So here are the nominee’s. I have tried to mix it up a bit and have chucked in some of my new favorites. I hope you’re all happy with your nominations. If not, you can pop them into this box right here, I won’t be offended. I know and appreciate that a lot of work goes into the creating of these awards.
drum roll please…. *Starts drumming energetically*
…DUN DUN DUN….
Okay, so if your award didn’t go into the BOX OF RETURNS, all you need to do is….Thank the person who gave you the award (MOI!) and leave a link to thier blog, choose 15 nominees, answer 7 interesting/random facts about yourself and pass the award on – simples!
As the rules go, I now have to tell you the 7 interesting facts about me. Seeing as this is my third time, I am sorta running out of interesting facts, but what the heck…
1; I am very flexible. I can not only wrap my feet around my head, but I can also do the splits!
2; When I was a kid I used to collect woodlice (in a tub). Before you phone the RSPCA, I looked after them well and fed them (orange juice and biscuits) on a regular basis!
3; I was a complete Tom boy until I discovered the *cringe* Spice girls. I went through a stage when my music taste was questionable. I was also a fan of …. brace yourself….Peter Andre!
4; My first ever tape (I’m old school!) was The Cranberries. My favourite song was Zombie!
5; On the topic of music, before I had a tape player (is that what they’re called?) I owned a record player. My first record was Band-aid 1984 ‘do they know it’s Christmas time’ … hmmm!
6; In the prime of my youth I liked to experiment with my hair, I have had every style and colour going…apart from the mohawk, I draw a line at the mohawk!
7; To add to my ever-growing list of wanted animals.I would also like a baby Koala bear… in a cup! Look at him, I want to kiss his nose!!!!
and lastly, I want to send a big THANKYOU to everyone 🙂
