It is just mindblowing.....

Well I never thought it would happen but it has.....and I am humbled! Holly Homemaker of Good Golly Miss Holly fame has graciously sent an award my way. Oh me oh my.....I know these things aren't every ones cup of tea but I get rather stoked when it happens! It still surprises me that people actually read my blog let alone like it so when awards (and comments, new members, etc) come my way I just have to do a happy dance!

According to what I read I have to answer a few questions in order to avoid ghosts, a 400 pound weight gain and 5 years of bad sex (which in turn would mean 5 years of a rather moody Mr) know I'm all about the happy so here it goes.....

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A lawyer or a politician - you know save the world whilst living in some exotic location with an unlimited bank balance........woops

What is your most most prized material possession?
My camera its a Nikon D60 - I love it. It is like my second child. My camera goes places I can't and translates situations I don't know how to. It is true that a picture holds a thousand words. See deep aren't I!

Do you have an iGadgetOfSomeDescription? If so, do you realise how very lucky you are?
Yes I have only just got an iphone. I am a geek at heart and I love it as I constantly have music going so the ipod part is pretty handy. Like every other mother though I am fighting for time on it as the madam commandeers it for the couple of 'ibooks' I put on it. Oh dear. Yes I do realise how lucky I am (with everything!)

What's your poison- warm bath or hot shower?
Hot shower....I could stay in it all day. Baths freak me out - at least in a shower I just don't look down.

What's the best decision you ever made?
To stop fighting having a relationship and give in to the Mr - he drives me crazy but I wouldn't be without him. Which in turn led to the Madam. Sometimes the path you thought you would NEVER go down is actually pretty good!

Now I have to pass this on to three others. These three are just three of all the fantastic blogs out there but they blow my mind so hopefully you'll love them as much as I do.....

Amanda at Ellieboo - this girl is so talented just look at all her creations!

Beth at BabyMac - get a coffee and have a read she is fantastic and her husband makes a fantastic TV show too!

Melissa at Sugar Coat it - funny, honest, talented...need I say more!

Go forth and blow minds!

P.S. If you are looking for another great blog check out Kelly
she has a wealth of knowledge on all things wedding and much more!

P.P.S Thank you Holly

Things I came across whilst wandering

Yes I have been playing around with the design of the blog - yes I am a techno unco so it may look a little weird until I figure it all out. After surviving the long weekend it looks like it's back to 'normality' today (whatever that is!) - as it is the season for it I have ended up with a sick chick again so the madam and I are a little housebound this week - plus the Mr has me working as his 'go for' (you know go for this, go for that) for his new building inspection business. But he is at work all day today so apart from getting the house in some sort of order - hopefully having a bit of a re - do on the design of my beloved blog - this is what I have found around the place lately..............

Have a look at this dancing lovely.....makes me want to grab a hoop

Megan with her overflow of knowledge and wonderful ideas wrote about this in her Monday Mama.....

I am in love with this photo....she is stunning

I think this is so my dreams I would use it everyday cycling to and from markets (in reality I would be far too cold at the moment!)
