Are You Beautiful Too?

Instead of just my blog receiving an award, I’m pleased to announce that I, too, have finally been bestowed…

Oh yes, it would seem the lovely Suzanne over at has nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award – although I’m guessing this is for an inner beauty, having just caught a glimpse of my somewhat dodgy exterior in the mirror!

As usual there are certain conditions attached to any acceptance, which are:

1. Write seven facts about yourself:

  • My birthsign is ‘Pisces’ which apparently means I’m shy, romantic, trustworthy, aloof, dreamy, creative, understanding, unrealistic and impractical… These obviously explain why I’m a writer.
  • I have a strong dislike for the colour yellow but don’t ask me why, I’ve just never liked it.
  • I didn’t learn to swim until I was eleven years old and am still not a very strong swimmer to this day.  In fact, I can only do breast stroke, at which I’m very neat but very slow.
  • My oldest son once asked me why all my favourite songs of the day were by bands with handsome lead singers…  I told him it was just a coincidence!
  • After belting out a rendition of Atomic Kitten’s ‘Whole Again’ as it played on the radio once, my youngest son (about five years old at the time) exclaimed how beautiful my singing was.  Of course, me being tone deaf I did know better and I actually felt physically embarrassed when accepting his compliment… Although to be fair, he did eventually realise his mistake as well and now when I try to sing he pleads with me to stop on account of his ears bleeding.
  • Me, Robert, Adam and Ben were once snapped poolside when holidaying in Corfu and (much to my horror) the resulting photograph appeared in a Manos travel agent brochure for about three years running!
  • At secondary school I was in every sports team going.  Hockey, netball, rounders… you name it, I was there.  I know, I can’t quite believe it myself, especially considering the nearest I get to exercise these days is walking the dog.

2. You link to the blog of the person who nominated you:

Which is what I’m off to do now x

  1. Thank you SO much for the accolade Suzie – hugely appreciated. Am currently snowed under (avalanche quantities) but promise to try and free up some time in the future to do this. Thank you again 🙂 X

  2. Of course you are beautiful, and well done on receiving the award. Interesting to find another virtual non-swimmer, although my only stroke is backstroke; something to do with keeping my head clear out of the water. Oh, and it's no secret that I have a thing about handsome leadsingers… I even write about them, heee heee! Many congrats, and glad I finally discovered your blog. X
