Awards – to be Inspired by

Nikki, The Wickedly Funny Witch (WFWW) over at  Bob & Emily nVery Inspiring Blogger Awardominated me in this post,  then  the lovely Kat over at Dandelion Fuzz nominated me also, in this post.  This double does of “inspiring awardiness” has made my head swell to gargantuan proportions and I shall not be able to get out my door to go to work tomorrow – wait, I am working from home tomorrow, so phew, that is a relief!

Anways, me being who I am I have decided to combine the two awards into one and just answer 7 questions instead of 14 (basically I am lazy).

So, um, err, eek, I’ve run out of things to say about me, it’s all been said in previous awards (not that I’m boasting you understand).

1.  I can use a chainsaw
2. I’m “handy” around the house, (drills, tools, fixing things, but no big carpentry)
3. I like getting my hands dirty in the garden, the feel of soil against my skin brings me back to reality
4. I am a VERY “neat & tidy” freaky kind of woman – see this post
5.  I still think I’m 30 in my head – sadly by body believes I’m 80
6. Ii had an MRI today – if I wasn’t deaf beforehand, I am now!
7.  My first job was picking raspberries for a season.

Since I’m not a person who sticks to the rules, I’m not adding an Award Icon to my page (I have footers on this theme and it doesn’t really work with them).

My list of nominees would be:

1. Christin at {This is Life} 
2. Kaz at Days and Months
3. The daughter of a work colleague, her blog is Apathetically Cancerous
4. Dawn at Life’s Little Mercies
5.  Jen at  Send the Bus
6.  Dammit Where’s My Chocolate
7.  Nikki, at Bob & Emily– but she has already had a nomination – so take this as a recommendation

If you’re not into Awards, or don’t have the time, you can pass the whole thing by, but if you want to do it, the rules are as below:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Add the Very Inspiring Blogger Award to your post.
  3. Share 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate a list of bloggers that inspire you.
  5. Include this set of rules.
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.


Zero to Hero – Day 26: Facebook, Instagram or Twitter

The assignment was to extend our brand – personally I’m not into branding, all that scorching flesh and red hot iron, but each to their own. 🙂

So, not having a mobile that can take decent photos, and not being a Twit, I decided to create a brand (ooh, an unintended pun) new facebook page an send all my posts to that instead of my personal page (wish I could send them to both, but alas I cannot).

So, if anyone wants to stalk me on facebook, click the aforementioned link.
