Blog Award

Carol has very kindly nominated me for a Blog Award - I don't know what I have done to deserve this, but I am very thankful for it, as its so nice to receive awards especially from someone whose stitching and finishing I am always in awe of (not to mention her designing skills)

Here's how the award works. The rules are simple:

1. One must accept the award

2. Thank the person who gave you the award

3. Add a link to the person who gave you the award

4. Paste the award on your blog

5. Write 10 things about yourself that others might not know

6. Pass the award on to 10 others

The passing on bit is not in the least bit easy as I would like to say its to go to everyone that visits me and leaves me comments too, but I will enter into the spirit of the award and try my hardest to list just 10
1. Szentpyr
2. Dovile
3. Staci
4. Anna
5. Jane
6. Terri
7. Nina
8. Carol
9. Adriana

Now this is another hard bit for me hmmmm 10 things that you might not know about me, now let me think!!!

1. I'm impulsive (so much so I have just splurged on 2 new sofas, when really I shouldn' have - but I don't regret it LOL)
2. I'm quite shy, but hide it well.
3. Libra is my star sign
4. I lived in Malta for 3 years
5. I am really enjoying being single, even though I thought I wouldn't
6. I am a fully trained and qualified Nurse
7. I'm originally from the South of England (Hampshire)- not the North of England even though I have a Northern accent
8. I've never been to America or Canada
9. So far I have lost 4 stone in weight over the past year (another 3 to go!) EDITED to tell you that there is 14lbs to a stone, so,  I have so far lost 56lbs)
10. I love Interior Design, next to stitching its my other passion

It has been fun recently with everyone sharing these awards - you really get to hear some interesting things about everyone! I'm curious too - how many pounds in a stone? If the number sounds better, I may start using that method of measuring myself!

Susan said...

Congratulations on the weight loss! That's awesome!

You really need to remedy #8, and come and visit us on the other side of the pond. Can I talk you into coming to the US in September for the Shepherd's Bush retreat? You've always got a place to stay here in north Texas!

That weight loss is fantastic, Su!! I never would have known that. I'm proud of you for buying those 2 sofas. Good for you!!

BS HONEY said...

WOW, 56 pounds, that had to be hard and you are to be congratulated. You certainly need to treat yourself with something that you want and/or need. Shoot, go shopping for a new wardrobe, too. Or have you done that already?

Anyway, we are all so proud of you.

God bless,

Lots of Love
