my first award *victory wiggle*

24 July 2012

this week seems to be one of those busy weeks, full of busy bloggity blogness.

i made buttons for me blog. woops, correction: biscuit made buttons for my blog, and i was awarded the Liebster Award from Sally over at Me + Life + Coffee.
how awesome is that?!!
i actually did a little victory wiggle when i found out because i rarely win things and to me it was such a lovely gesture...thank you so much Sally! are the rules...

random facts
i hate it when people touch my little toe. it doesn't happen often but when it does i squirm like a baby.

i love marmite and i don't understand people who don't.

when i start watching a really good tv series i could literally lose whole evenings to it. i can get so utterly wrapped up in it i forget everything on my to-do list!

i can be notoriously hard on myself. i easily forget that i am only human and life is meant to be lived with a light heart and with a smile on your face.

i will always believe that my cat is the most gorgeous cat in the world, regardless of what anyone else thinks.

i apply hand cream no less than 20 times a day. (and i am not exaggerating there)

i didn't realise how much i would fall in love with this blogging world.

i have worn the the two rings that biscuit got me for christmas '2010 every day since that christmas. they are my most precious possessions.

for about a year in school i was dead set about calling one of my children Ebenezer. as in Ebenezer Scrooge. don't ask, it was a phase.

i have learnt to accept that i am super pale now. italy will be our first sun holiday in nearly 2 years and i fear for my skin...looks like it will be spf 30 for me..

if i could, i would wear flip flops every day of the year. for like ever..
