I’m touched and honoured to be the recipient of a blog ‘award’/meme thing. I feel like I’ve made it to the big time- an outlet for the randomness of my mind, a readership in double figures, and the apparent ability to make complete strangers cry along with me (we must work on the singalongs I think). Go me! I may come over all Gywnnie.
First Tinman and then Janie nominated me for this. Thank you both for this madness. Madness, I tell you. I’m meant to tell you seven random ‘facts’ about myself, and then pass this on to fifteen other bloggers to do the same. I started thinking about the blogs I read daily/ weekly/ the odd time. How did I find them in the first place? Well, of course, through links and comments and random nosing about.
The first blog I encountered was beaut.ie. From there I found Grannymar, The Anti Room, Annie and Gluttony for Beginners. Grannymar introduced me to Tinman, Blackwatertown and Nick. Through Tinman, I found Tillybud, Patti, laughykate and Janie. Tillybud linked to Kate. I have no idea how I found Mise (something to do with teatowels?), but I found Jaboopee there through her witty comments. Iota is a longstanding read- one of the the few ‘mummy blogger’ types that I read; deceptively simple and powerful stuff. Dorkymum is a recent discovery- parenting with added photography and poetry. Manuel should be part of anyone’s blogroll. Xtrekki is someone I actually know, though she’s been unusually quiet recently. Yes, I know that’s more than 15, but I’m not actually ‘tagging’ them, just letting you know who they are. These are the blogs I read most often right now, and they all deserve an award for fabulousity. If any of them, or you, want to be tearful and accepting, then blog away.
Well then, ‘facts’…
1. Underneath the highlights, I have the hair of an 85 year old.
2. I own more milk jugs, sugar bowls and serving dishes than any house needs. Especially one with limited hosting skills.
3. I hate mushrooms…
4. …and the very thought of offal.
5. I spent a significant part of my youth watching rally cars slow down.
6. I used to do drama, but lost the oomph long ago. I’m currently looking for any spare oomph.
7. I really look like this
