Well I am thrilled this week two lovely awards have been bestowed upon me and I really don’t know what to say … I suppose a big thank you is all I can do for now, just except, smile and take a bow.

The Sisterhood of the World Bloogers Award was sent to me by the very young but insightful Naima. Not only was I thrilled and very surprised but I love the look of the award too.

The are a few rules so here they go:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog.
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.
  • Tell 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 7 other fabulous bloggers.
  • Link your nominees to this post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.

The seven facts about myself (really who wants to know?) are:

1) I am a paper and pencil kind of girl, although I do type away on my Mac all day I have a passion for all things paper.

2) I am a good cook and bake … just don’t really get the opportunity too often as am single and live on my own.

3) I am a very loyal friend and love them dearly.

4) I love walks on the beach and taking photos

5) I have tried to go to Italy four  times, it somehow never worked out but I hope I get to go this year.

5) I am a green label Lyons Tea girl

6) I always have a book I am reading, mostly carry it with me and it’s a new one every week

7) I can’t type with all 10 fingers (well properly) but I have my own six-fingered system and I am very fast.

And here are all of my nominees, check them out, enjoy getting to know them and have fun:

  1. What is a favorite childhood memory? Oh I have so many but I think the most excited I ever was when me and my sister flew for the first time on our own … I was five she was seven and the airline went on strike so instead of a direct flight from Dublin to Hamburg we went on a European  tour and got loads of gifts and attention.
  2. What is a real fear you have? I think dieing old and alone, even worse in a body that doesn’t function but with an alert mind
  3. How would you describe yourself? Creative, clever and a little off center 
  4. What Countries have you lived in? South Africa, Ireland and Germany and then Ireland again
  5. What is your style? I don’t have a style, maybe a bit arty and hippie … lose fitting and natural fabrics. love shoes but love going barefoot
  6. What is your favorite breakfast food? I nee my tea, have toast or muesli most days, porridge in the winter but every now and then I love a big fry-up and fruit after
  7. What are some of your hobbies? Films, reading, writing I use to paint and need to take it up again, love my friends and what ever pops into my mind
  8. If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say? Always stay true to yourself and love.
  9. What is one of your passions? SHOES
  10. What is the one truth you have learned? It’s hard to find the right guy but so much better being on your own the with the wrong one
