Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award . . .

Well it happened again, didn't it. As much as I tried not to let it happen, I had no control of this thing leaping out from that corner and surprising me - despite all my best efforts to ward it off.

Yes, it's another Blogger's award.

That's two now, and both were awarded by Amanda Borenstadt over at 'A Fortnight Of Mustard'. She must love me over there. And you know what? I love her too. Thank you Amanda for the second award.

This award was the 'Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award'. I'm sure Amanda must have contacted the wrong person. Is my blog really that sweet? How could a scary picture of a half angel half demon have attracted the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award? Wonders never cease...lol

Anyway, the Rules are simple.

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you. (Tick)
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 8 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

So here goes:

1: I don't like talking on phones. I put this down to 'lazy hearing'. My mother is deaf, and she lip reads a lot. I find I do this too, and so when I can't see lips moving I sometimes find it difficult to understand what people are saying, despite the fact I can hear them.

2: When I was about 15 I was contemplating joining the Royal Navy. I have a first class qualification in - and you'll never guess what - communications. Yep, working with Radios and Morse code, which I now only know half of. God knows why someone who hates talking on the phone would want a job working over radios...lol

3: I'm still as blonde as they come.

4: I have a sneaky suspicion I'm turning into a 'Crazy Cat Lady'. I work at home all week, with my husband away trucking, and it's just me and my cat.

5: I own a pair of fingerless gloves for typing when I'm really cold - which feeds my belief about the crazy cat lady.

6: 'If I'm that cold', I hear you ask, 'why not put the heating on?' Well, the cottage I live in is over 300 years old, and as drafty as they come. Sitting down working for periods of time renders you with cold digits.

7: We have a whipping post outside our house. Yes, a 'Whipping Post'! Last used in 1665 to whip two vagabonds. I love telling people about it...and I never tire of people suggesting why I love living where I am - what with the 'whipping post' and all. I'll leave that to your imagination...lol

I now have to pass this award on to 8 others, but you know what, I'm going to go the easy route. I know too many good blogs to choose. You all have fantastic blogs that I enjoy reading.

There IS, however, someone I would like to award. He runs a simple comic blog about the daily shenanigans of his life. He doesn't preach; he doesn't try to advise; he just brings a smile to my face every morning when I read. I feel he needs to know how much I appreciate that.

SuperZero. Here's your very much deserved award!


  1. Oh, *I* want a whipping post! :-) Congrats on the award.

  2. We all know why your hubby is away so much. He's scared of his cat lady and her whipping post.

  3. LOL
    You're so cool! I want to type wearing fingerless gloves and own a whipping post! :D

  4. Thanks for your kind words!
