A few weeks ago the oh so lovely Loo of jumblesandpompoms passed the Versatile Blogger Award on to me. Thank you so much lovely Loo, I really, truly appreciate it.
I love Loo's blog to bits so it was a great honour that she passed this onto me.
As part of the award I am to tell you 7 things that you don't know about me. Now, being the shy kind of person that I am, I have been pondering this for a while. I hope that I don't bore you all to death, here goes....
I am allergic to excercise, I have been for as long as I can remember and don't like any sports. When I was at school I used to avoid P.E. by constantly having my period. Having said that I am utterly obsessed by Formula 1. I love it and have been a close follower for the past 5 years.
Despite living in Spain for 2 1/2 years I cannot speak Spanish. My husband is Spanish but he will not teach me because it makes him feel awkward. For some reason the words will not stay in my head and I cannot get my mouth around the pronuncation. I would love to be able to speak a foreign language but my brain will not cooperate.
I learnt to crochet by watching a video on You Tube. I wish that I could find the video as I would love to thank the lady that made it. I had been desperate to learn for a few years but knew nobody that could teach me, the video taught me how to make a granny square and my love of crochet grew from there.
I think that Chris Martin is the most beautiful man in the world.
I have never watched E.T. I was told that it was really sad and upsetting and that was enough. For that same reason I have also never seen Bambi or Watership Down. I have also never watched Star Wars but have no idea why.
Our house is a bit like noahs ark. No, we don't live on a boat unfortunately but we do tend to come in two's. Two adults, two children, two cats and two dogs. Maude, a.k.a. the little brown dog, was actually born on my stomach. We had got Penny (Mum of Maude) the day before from someone that needed to rehome her due to moving abroad. The woman that we bought her from had told us that she was overweight because she ate too many biscuits and chocolates (not a good thing for dogs). I suspected differenetly but fell in love with her as she is such a lovely, gentle little dog and she's great with the girls.
The next night she was lay next me on the sofa but wouldn't settle. My husband and I were getting ready to go up to bed when he noticed that I had what he thought was rat on top me! Of course when he announced this I jumped off the sofa, launching the said rat onto the floor and that is when we discovered that she had given birth to Maude. She then went on to have 3 more gorgeous pups who have all since gone on to great owners.
Maude has never been right after being dropped on her head but we love her and her mum so much. We couldn't believe that someone could sell a pregnant dog and not tell us but it all worked out well in the end.
I hope that you are still awake. I would now like to pass this award on to the following fabby bloggers....
Thanks again Loo!
