The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

Today on the iPod: Go your own way by Fleetwood Mac, there is reason for this but that’s another post altogether….

Bad Blogger! I received my first blog award a while ago but didn’t collect it! (To be honest it scared me a bit I thought I might have to do something complicated….)

I have been given this award by both Christy & Lisa Thank you so much, you lovely people you!

Right so the rules are:

1. Thank and link the Person who nominated you

2. Share seven random facts about yourself.

3. Recommend 15 deserving blogs. (15!)

4. Contact those blogs to let them know.

I’ve done the first one above, so now to share some facts….errmmm…OK

  1. I am allergic to EVERYTHING, well maybe not everything but pretty close, I sneeze, swell and stop breathing at lots of things

  1. I have a really good memory for things written down, I can drag my way through a text book and then remember all of it, but I forget things I’ve seen. Which means I’m happy to re-watch the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory nearly straight away even when blokie moans that we have only just seen it.

  1. I have four uncles & 12 aunts (double that really if you’re counting spouses and great aunts and uncles) plus about a zillion cousins.

  1. I own an X-Pole which I haven’t used for ages but I will again soon

  1. I started learning Spanish in November and according to my latest Linq test I now know 1,564 words and I feel confident that when I go on holiday I will be chatting to Spanish people (I don’t have a holiday booked or anything I’m just hoping I’ll go away some day soon)

  1. I follow 126 blogs. 67 blogs on writing, reading and books in general, 27 on languages and linguists, 3 on Sex and the City, 1 on nail varnish, 2 on social networking, 1 blog on Friends (the TV show), 1 history blog, 2 on teaching, 4 blogs on soaps and crafts, 1 blog on movies, 1 on science, 1 on Ricky Gervais,  2 blogs on blogging and 13 blogs on random sweet nice things. I read these blogs on the train or just before I fall asleep. (in bed BTW not on the train)

  1. I like fizzy drinks but only when they are flat, (I’m the crazy person that buys the bottle of coke and then shakes it up to get rid of the fizz…)

Ok that took longer than expected. Right deserving blogs.
