Awards Night


The lovely Tracy at Pinkpurl gave me an award! Hurrah! I feel very clever and special indeed. Unfortunately I now have to share 7 weird facts about myself (that is part of the deal, apparently) So here goes...
1) I love seafood and shellfish, but the mere thought of tinned fish makes me gag. I am sure I would be 2 stone lighter if only I liked tinned tuna. Every diet I have ever attempted seems to recommend it. Yuck. It smells of cat food, seriously.
2) Everyone thinks my hair colour is natural. It isn't. SHHHH!!! (not sure how normal it is to have such a serious amount of grey hair at my age, but it's not the end of the world, worse things could happen)
3) When I first met my husband I didn't like him. He does know that. Thankfully he grew on me. I like him a lot now.
4) My husband and I got together, moved in together and got married within six months. We scared a lot of people, but I think they have recovered, mostly. We have just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. I realise we have a long way to go, but I am looking forward to every moment.
5) I work as an estate agent, but trained as a Nursery Nurse. No one EVER sets out to be an estate agent. Why would you? Having said that, I do love my job.
6) I have secret ambitions to open my own shop one day, which would be a bookshop come florists come coffee shop. With a few arty crafty bits and pieces thrown in for good measure.
7) I quite fancy Simon Cowell. But it's ok, because my sister in law does too.(Nic, if I have to suffer I'm bringing you down with me) I can't believe I told you all that. Now THAT is weird.
Tracy, I may now need counselling after that little lot, but feel I can sleep safely in my bed for getting it off my chest. Phew. Now, the best bit is that I get to pass the award on, so to 4 of my favourite fellow bloggers (can you hear the manic laughter?!) here you are...your blogs always cheer me up and make me smile!

I love the story of how you and your hubby got together. So romantic...

Nicola said...

Firstly, congrats on your well deserved award. Secondly - you traitor! You promised that was a forbidden love we would never speak of. Thankfully I don't know anyone else who blogs so hopefully my friends need never know about the whole Simon Cowell thing (tell KC or Sarah and you die!) I am just glad you didn't admit to the other ones we fancy as well...xx

Congrats on your award Anna, very well deserved. Glad you feel better after getting those facts off your chest! Having a florist etc shop sounds like a wonderful idea but as for that Simon Cowell thing ...!

Congratulations on the award and thank you for mine - what do I have to do?! I can see what you mean about Simon Cowell but the high-waisted trousers are a big No-No for me. Maybe one day there will be a chain of coffee/book/florist/craft shops around the UK called All Things Lovely - wonderful!

Dragonfly said...

A well-deserved award, well done you! And thank you for passing it on to me - it's my first! I've really got my thinking cap on, but bear with me...

Janette said...

hi, Simon Cowell - so so funny!!!! love the idea for your shop - hope your dream comes true one day for you. And six months for meeting to marriage - that's really quick - I thought I was quick by getting married a year after meeting but 6 months - that's fast. (By the way we've been married 9 years at the end of this month so shows that quick relationships can work just fine).

LOVED reading you list, Anna! I hope your shop dream comes true! :o) I started graying very early too, and have been coloring my hair for years now, alas. Your list is wonderful, only the Simon Cowell bit does have me worried--LOL! His constant acidity...can that be real? Enjoy your award--so fun to give it to you ((HUGS))

Knew I would regret sharing the Simon Cowell thing..but the whole point of the list was that it had to be weird and unusual facts!! I just like the fact that he doesn't take any prisoners and just gets on and says what he is thinking. I know he has a mean streak and he certainly isn't perfect (the hair, the trousers etc) but there is definitely something attractive there, ok?!!

Naturegirl said...

I've come in from Trcy's because how can I resist meeting another gal with my first name!I read on your profile that you love pink peonies and crm. roses! I adore those flowers in the same color. Many of of summer posts are just that!I have as of late stopped coloring my hair and proudy show off my ~silver fox look~ many comment on how much they love my new color..I just smile.How do you do Anna! :) aNNa from a Canadian garden

Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it on!

I don't think I have anything quite as weird as fancying Simon Cowell ... though I do find Simon Pegg rather appealing. Is that wrong?!
