I am so thrilled to have been given the 'Kreativ Blogger' award by the lovely Rita @ http://arefocusedlife.blogspot.com/ ......thank you so much Rita, as a very new girl to the blogging world I am so touched to be included in your list....Please forgive me for taking a few days to post this....am still not quite sure how these things work! I hope I am doing this correctly and if not, please let me know! I have to thank the person who nominated me & in this case, ask her to forgive me for being tardy - I obviously missed the original comment and didn't realise she had been so kind as to include me until I read Jeanne's post (sorry Rita, I will get up to speed, promise!), copy the logo & post it on my blog, link to the person who nominated me, list seven things others may not know about me, nominate seven creative bloggers to receive this award, post their links & leave a comment on each (phew....!!)
OK - here is my list:
1. As well as my GG I have two BB's (beautiful boys!!!) - all grown up and out in the big wide world....the eldest has two gorgeous babies & that makes me a very proud grandmama!
2. I have two passports! Australia & U.K....I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to live on both sides of the world!
3. I have worked in law, the cosmetics industry and a few other things besides....my most recent role was co-ordinating a meals on wheels service & a large team of volunteers in a Sydney hospital - I absolutely loved it and miss it every day....
4. I own hundreds of cookbooks....cooking (and eating I confess) are passions - I discovered early on that in order to do the latter well it's necessary to have some idea about the former...!
5. I just got (for Christmas actually) the first iPod I've ever owned.....!
6. I don't have a sweet tooth apart from one little exception - Allens red frogs - I have them shipped/sent/brought/posted at any/every opportunity and am willing to do (almost) anything to make sure I have a constant supply......
7. I just adore tea! The first of the day is always black with lemon & honey, moving on to english breakfast & earl grey and I couldn't even think of going to bed without a cup of my favourite rosie lea.....
Oh dear - I've completed the requisite seven but I have so much more to tell you.....!! I shall have to leave that to my seven 'nominees' who are:
Jackie @ http://home-biba.blogspot.com/
Vitania @ 'Verdigris Vie'
Julie @ http://beingruby.blogspot.com/
mise @ 'pretty far west'
sarah @ 'semi-expat in oz'
Yvonne @ 'La Petite Gallery'
I would have sent this on to Jeanne at 'Collage of Life' but she already has a nomination from Rita...
Also would have nominated Millie at The Laurel Hedge & Meredy at Count It All Joy but they have already been nominated by Jeanne!!!
So, Over to you ladies.........s
