Thank you so much to Holly for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! Yay! Holly is an awesome blogger and you should all definitely be following her. If you’re not, you really need to. Like, now.
Seriously, it’s a hyperlink, you only need to click on her name.
Ok, the rules…
1. Each nominee must THANK the person who nominated them and link their blog in the post.
2. They should include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
3. They must add seven facts about themselves and then nominate fifteen people.
Ok, seven things about me…
1. I went to full time university twice – once to Aston Business School (home of almost every annoying Apprentice candidate) and once to Coventry Uni for my MA. I’m also a chartered member of the Institute for Personnel Development, which I think means I can sign off passport applications. So I get to write BSc. MA (CIPD) after my name. Fancy!
2. I bake almost every day. I’ve just made two Christmas cakes and I’m in the middle of soaking the fruit for my Christmas pudding. Plus I’m making a cake for my friends birthday at the weekend (batter is currently chilling in the fridge).
3. I listen to “Slade’s Xmas Party Bangers” on vinyl every year when I’m decorating my tree, then Elvis Presley singing Xmas songs. Then I usually have a fight with my partner about “making the house look like an explosion in Poundland” and moodily put the Smiths and/or Deftones on.
4. I hate pretty much all Disney (CONTROVERSIAL!!!)
5. It took me four years to learn to drive. This was more through laziness about booking my test than actual ability to drive. I even negotiated a discount with my driving instructor.
6. I broke my leg in four places playing Roller Derby, which was a great way to find out that I had a high pain threshold (I put a bag of frozen peas on it and went to bed).
7. I wish I could play a musical instrument, but I have absolutely no natural ability. I can’t even sing, I sound like a Ramone. I make up for it in enthusiasm and volume though.
I’m breaking the rules here but I tag all of you – GO!
