Finally I do my award post!

Huge thanks to Cuckoo (and Fee admittedly about 2 months ago) for my Kreativ Blogger award. Finally I have got round to doing my 7 facts and passing it on. I actually got up v early this morning to try and do some nail painting / fake tanning etc for the wedding  this weekend before the munchkin got up. Unfortunately I got distracted reading lots of lovely blogs and doing this and I can just hear her start to babble - argh! I swear I used to be able to prioritise!


1.I am really lucky to have such a close family. Sometimes so much so that I feel scared it might be taken away. We genuinely love spending time together, G Kisby as much as anyone, which I realise can be rare. Our dad died when I was little and I wonder if in some strange way that has made us closer? Perhaps something positive has come from something so sad?


2. I worry too much. Not about the big things (that I probably should worry about) but about frustratingly small things...what other people will think...has everyone had enough to eat (I'm a feeder)...should I have eaten that second slice of cake (no).
I should have 'don't sweat the small stuff' tatooed somewhere!

3. I am currently learning to knit. I'm not great but have managed an ipod pouch and a scarf for Mabel. Because I was enjoying practising it is far far too long...


Apparently babies don't even wear scarves but I asked her and she said she likes it...


4. I don't understand why you dust under things (you don't see it), or have to wash a bread knife when it's been used only once (just brush off the crumbs?) I once did a cleaning job whilst a student...it didn't last long!

5. I use too many exclamation marks! It probably mirrors the way I talk!!!

6. I dream of starting my own business one day. I'd like one of the many ideas I have in my head to finally come to something. It nearly happened about 5 years ago and although I still believe in the idea the timing wasn't good. It will probably be a good few years away now that we are busy creating our family but that's o.k, I am very happy right now. I find women who have managed it alongside parenting pretty inspiring!
7. I have an unbelievably low boredom threshold. I'm bored of doing this now...
so I am going to pass this award on to the lovely Ashley at Country Rose!

  2. Thank you so much for the award! I'm now feeling completely chuffed :-) It's definitely helped me feel a bit more cheerful after a bit of a stressful morning.. Rose has been as cranky as ever, I think her top teeth may be on their way! But Thankfully she's back to sleep in her cot now..

    Mabel looks a complete cutey in her new scarf. Look at her sitting up on her own, Rose just about manages to wobble for a second before launching herself backwards or taking a nose-dive into the carpet! Well done on the knitting, it seems to take forever in the beginning.. I found that when I started holding the wool in a different way, I could knit a lot faster. I still struggle with the patterns quite a bit though!

  3. Hello love! Thanks for your comment over at mine. Lovely to hear from you.
    Mabel is such a cool name. I once knew a 96 year old woman called Mabel. She was the oldest landlady in Devon and had the sweetest little pub which didn't even have a bar and everyone drank out of proper tankards.
    Always loved the name Mabel and it suits your little girlie.
    So you and Fee.....are you sisters? I am way behind the times....

  4. I read that you had knitted an ipod cover and scarf for mabel....and was thinking 'is that what you give babies these days?' when I fidured it was the one you gave G Kisby?

    Well done on the award front - you do know we got one from Emily this week? and yes - you have to do it again! go visit Cuckoo - she has had about 5 recently and managed 7 facts each and every time - and still funny. Curse her for raising the bar.

    i did my fake tan yesterday before going out for dinner. Went out pale, came back asian. result.

  5. I seem to be posting immediately after Fee these days and she always distracts me by making me snort with laughter with her comments. Had to laugh at the pale/asian image. Ha ha!

    Can't believe you've done your blog award post. I have still got to do mine... I'm not interesting enough to think of seven facts about myself. Might make stuff up.

    I worry about little things too - far too much. And I over-analyse.

    Lovely little scarf for Mabel and she looks very cute. I think she can start a trend in scarves for babies. She is looking slightly different in every photo lately - isn't it astonishing how they change so quickly.
