Award's and's all about me as usual!

I've been given a couple of awards today so it looks like I'm going to busy the next couple of hours wracking my brain to find suitable responses and try and find 10 + 7 blogs to those who haven't already been awarded.  I'm sure you'll all be totally bored by the end of this post, and I won't be surprised if anyone denies they ever heard of me!!

The Kreativ Blogger award was awarded by Him, me & three. Please go and visit her lovely blog.   There are, as always, rules with the award and they are as follows;

1) Link to 10 Blogs
2) Let the 10 bloggers know they’ve been awarded
3) List 10 facts about you

The Versatile Award was awarded by 40blogSpot for my ramblings...she thought it amusing! Please go and visit, her blog is great!

1) Link to 15 Blogs
2) Let the 15 bloggers know they’ve been awarded
3) List 7 facts about you

Phew...I have no idea how I'm going to find 25 blogs that no one else has seen, but I will try my hardest. It may take some time.

Thanks for the award guys, and I'm sorry if I break the chain.

So, 10 + 7 facts
1. I'm older than most of you!
2. I hate my photo being taken.
3. I play the flute and the saxophone.
4. I have brown eyes.
5. I have a penchant for open topped cars.
6. I'm a hippy at heart.
7. I've lost a brother and a sister...both devastating, but has shaped me into the person I am.
8. I won't move away as my family is nearby and I love them all so much. I want to live on a boat, but the family ties are too strong.
9. I have taken RCA level one in sailing (toppers) but gave it all up because it was too difficult to light a fag.
10. I grow vegetables (badly).  The potatoes too small, the cabbages, slug infested and the marrows eaten by worms.
11. I was approached three times by modelling scouts, but I thought they were trying to get me to join a cult....when I look back I see how lovely I was.
12.Tony Hadley asked me out but I thought he was a creep.  I was never swayed by the fame of people...I knew they pooed the same as me!
13. I was once held hostage (2 days), but escaped when I begged to go and get a takeaway...I never reported it as I thought it was an experience.  Nothing happened, I wasn't hurt, the guy just wouldn't let me leave. Jaysus, what was I thinking?
14. I work in aluminum tubing.
15. I don't drink because I'm allergic to alcohol.  It makes me do crazy things, and I really like to be in charge of my faculties!
16.I have a degree.
17. I was chucked out of the girl guides for being a "bad influence"...but I wouldn't leave!

Now I've bored you to death, I have to list the next phase.  If you don't want to do it's OK.
For the Kreativ Award my votes are for:

A Scandinavian Sojourn
Dotty Noggin
and for the Versatile Award my votes go to:
I always find this a great opportunity to read and find other gems. There are so many great reads out there that I'm finding it hard to keep up with everyone. I'll add more when I have more time.


  1. What an incredible, tough life you've had. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother and sister.

    As for being held! You're very brave to have written it off as an experience and move on from it.

    Thank you for doing this. I loved reading about you and finding out more.

    These memes can be a pain at times when they all seem to come along at once but I liked the Kreativ one as it really got me thinking about 10 facts that people should know about me.

    Sometimes there are really interesting facts about your life that you wouldn't normally blog about but they make you the person that you are.


  2. Wow, what an interesting life! I lead a more boring life, but I am a fellow hippie. So sorry to hear about your siblings.

  3. Wow, I am speechless -you had a tough ride!!!

  4. Oh dear, reading through the list, I really don't sound like me! I'm normal, truly...well my kind of normal! I have amazing parents, who inspire me to make the most of everything and to never dwell on what could have been...pick yourself up, and dust yourself down. The loss of my siblings was shattering, but others suffer sorry's needed. xxx

  5. Congratulations on your awards! You have lived through some astonishing things. As for being a bad influence, I always like to remember 'well-behaved women rarely make history.'

    Thank you for sharing. So glad I found your blog!

  6. Loved your list, what an interesting life you have had. So sorry about your brother and sister though!

    Thanks so much for this award, have only just seen it catching up on some blogs. It's really kind of you! Emma :)
