Three in three days!

Just before I begin, a little reminder that something special's happening this weekend.... Check back tomorrow after 9am GMT to find out what it is! There might just be something in it for you.... ;-)

I am honoured and slightly overwhelmed that my blog has received yet another award :-) I can't tell you how much it means to me that people enjoy visiting my blog - so thank you to all of you who visit, to all who comment, and to those who have been kind enough to pass on blog awards to me. I'm really touched xx

I feel a slight Gwyneth Paltrow moment coming on.... "I'd like to thank (*sob*) my mother, my father, (*sob*) my husband, my (*sob*) children, my hamster, (*sob*) my postman, my window (*sob*) cleaner.....!"

More seriously, I'd like to thank the very creative and inspiring Creative Beast for passing on the Kreativ Blogger award to me :-) In return, I need to do a few things:

1. thank the person who nominated you for this award. (Check!)

2. copy the logo and place it on your blog. (Check!)
3. link to the person who nominated you for this award. (Check!)
4. name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting. (Ah... Will do my best!)
5. nominate 7 Kreative Bloggers. (See below.)
6. post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. (Ditto.)
7. leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated. (Will do!)

Seven things that people might find interesting. Hmmm. How about I just tell you seven things about myself and you pretend to find them interesting?! Please?! Go on, be polite!!
  1. I once did a bungee jump.
  2. I know the value of pi to 35 decimal places (did I just admit that out loud?!)
  3. My name means black sheep.
  4. I have at least 7 scars (that accident prone thing again...)
  5. I can play four different instruments - all of them badly! But I can at least play a tune or two on them....
  6. I was married at the age of 23.
  7. I have spent time in 18 different countries, but have never (yet) left Europe.
Now to nominate some worthy creative blogging types :-)
  1. Ruth
  2. Liberty
  3. Sarah
  4. Rainbow Child
  5. GemmaJoy
  6. Lizzie
  7. Jacky
Hope you like your well-deserved award, girls :-) It's great to pass it on to you!

And I hope to see you _all_ tomorrow for that special something I keep hinting about... ;-)
