Reader Appreciation Award!!



Well, well, well. Looks as if I've only gone and gotten a blinkin' reader appreciation award!  I'd like to thank the epically talented Miss Cisco for bestowing this honour upon my now very smug and gloaty shoulders.  Not only that, but I know it is a top (and completely legit) award because she is a top blogger type person who knows what she's on about, and she also happens to be very knowledgeable about biscuits!

However there are drawbacks to being so damn well appreciated...I have to tell you stuff.  You ready? Here goes..



What is my favourite colour is....


I like RED.  Scarlet red, crimson, deep velvety shades of red.  I think red is sexy, opulent, bright, & seductive but it can also be warming, festive and restful. I always wanted to be Miss Scarlett in Cluedo, she was a fox.  That being said, I wouldn't decorate my WHOLE house in red.  I do like red clothes, particularly dresses, I'm a curvy girl and I always feel a bit like a 50's pin-up wearing a red dress (although in reality I probably look more like a big round squishy tomato).  Red rocks!


How I'd like to look in red...



My favourite animal is...


Animal from the Muppets!  He is a wild one, and he plays the drums!  How could he not be my favourite animal?  He is very Rock 'n' Roll!

Animal magnetism....



My favourite non-alcoholic drink is....

Surely this is a trick question? No? Well, ok then.  Fairly partial to fruit juices (mango especially) and making my own concoctions. Like making cocktails (and I love those)!  I like mixing orange juice, mango and passionfruit juice.  It is yummy!  Sometimes add a bit of soda water or maybe some Sprite to give it a nice bubbly-ness!

I want to lie ship wrecked and comatose, drinking fresh mango juice...



My favourite pattern is....

Love leopard print, love tartan, love polka dots.  I own a lot of polka dot dresses.  Probably about 6!  So it must be polka dots I suppose!

Dotty about dots...





My favourite number is....

I don't like maths, so it strikes me as odd that I would have a favourite number...So to be nice I'll go for ONE.  They do say it is the loneliest number, so perhaps if I declare it as my favourite it'll make it feel a bit less lonely...?

Making 1 happy!



My favourite day of the week is...

I'm going with Miss Cisco on this one. Friday I am most definitely in love! I'm totally copying, but I would have chosen it anyway, as it is the day H's daddy finishes for the weekend and we are all together.  Well that and I love the Cure and  they have the best song about Friday EVER!  Don't believe me?  Take a listen and see...


 I defy you not to be cheered by this song...if you aren't you are a misery guts!


My favourite flowers are....

Roses. Probably because they make me think of this Burn's poem...

O, my luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June.
O, my luve's like the melodie,
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I,
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun!
O I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile! 


*written in the original scots dialect




My passions are...

First and foremost my beautiful Holly and my wonderful David.  I'd be lost without my loves!

In general though...Reading, music, Jack Daniels, acting like a big kid, beautiful handwriting (I do a bit of calligraphy), fancy dress, tidying up (yes really), writing lists and organising stuff, travelling (in the UK and abroad) and last but certainly not least.... food, glorious food!

Well, you're probably bored now, but I'm hoping you haven't slipped into a coma.  So if not, well done!  Hope you have a lovely weekend.  I'm going to go off and listen to some more of The Cure.  Before I go though I'd like to cast my eye out into the blogosphere for the next potential award recipients...

My nominations are:

Chele Nic's Blog

Juicy juice and other drugs

Mummy Roc...

Milk Teeth Mummy

Babies, Bellies, Bums and Beauty


Apologies if you've already been nominated....just proves how fab you all are!

Thanks. No I hadn't seen that! I'm hoping it's on You Tube though! Away for a look now. By the way, I only remembered I was tagged for this because I was perusing your older blog posts. Reading your blog always cheers me up! X
