I was nominated for the award by the lovely Adding Up To Be Mum, take a look at her blog all about her, her daughter Molly and life as a newly single mum.
I was pleasantly surprised to be nominated, despite knowing exactly how many people read my blog on a daily basis, its always a shock to find out people actually read and enjoy what I write!
As always with these memes there are a few ground rules, and they should of course be followed exactly to the letter!
1) Link back to the person who nominated you
2) Proudly display the badge with the post
3) Post 7 interesting facts about yourself
4) nominate 15 other bloggers and don't forget to let them know so they can carry on the batton.
1) I love the number 13. Its my favorite number precisely for the reason that no one else likes it, its a sad number that needs to be loved.
2) I speak my own little language which after 5 years of marriage the husband is slowly starting to understand. It includes phrases such as 'can you put the cheese back in the oven' and 'can you get the thing form the thing by the thing, you know, that thingymebob!'
3) The husband and I were engaged 6 months after meeting and married 6 months after that. we've been married for 5 years, and sometimes its even happily!
4) I'm a terrible insomniac and do my best writing and thinking at night. (It's actually 2 am and after drafting this, I'll attempt to sleep again)
5) I gave birth naturally to a 10lb 9oz baby and survived... although my body didn't (you can read all about it here - the birth that is, not the body!)
6) I was once on Children in need, in one of those really sad tear inducing VT's, as a child in need.
7) I have a candle obsession, I have 21 in my living room alone and love nothing more than curling up in the evening with them all lit (just don't tell my firefighter father!)
So who do I nominate?
The first has to be Emily Beale Photography, shes blogs most days and is the blogger and mother I aspire to be.
Next up is A Mothers Ramblings where blogging is a family activity and her children's packed lunches are so inventive and creative.
3 is Actually Mummy, the blog of an 8 year old loquacious school girl, always very funny.
4 is Family Four Fun, a blog where family fun is always top of the agenda.
5 has to be the lovely Lou's leafs, her blog is just inspiring and uplifting.
I have many many blogs on my blog roll, but these have to be my top 5 favorites when I need inspiration, ideas or just a pick me up. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do.
And yes I know the rules say to nominate 15 bloggers, but if you wanted fact number 8 from me, I'm a big fan of breaking the rules!
