Blogger Award

I must say a really big thank you to Clara for this my lovely award.

Isn't it funny how something nice like this happens just when you need it.  It has been such a bad week.  Oh Yes Indeedy it really has been one of those weeks.  So much so that  I will be really pleased to put Mr Sunday to bed and wake up ever so early and fresh with Miss Monday Morning.  So this really is a big Thank You!

Having this award means I have to tell you five things about me and then I can pass my award on to five other deserving bloggers.

1.  I wish I had pigs, in fact I wish I had pigs, some sheep and a lot of land - in actual fact I have three chickens - Lady, Maggie and Ginger and three dogs, Murphy, Spot and Pickles - yes it is a mad house

2.  Before I fell pregnant in 2007 I used to run for Cancer Research, something I wish to get back to next year.  I started doing this when my darling Dad was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer. 

3.  I once abseiled down the building I used to work in.  The organisers said they had never seen anyone do it so fast especially for their first time.  I was desperate for a wee.  I had waited in line at the top of the building for 3 hours.  Speed was a necessity!

4.  I used to design street furniture including dog waste bins, then I went to work in the sewerage and water department at consulting engineers - Bit of a Crappy theme going on !

5.    At the age of 7 I sat on the floor with my old singer sewing machine and lost the needle.  I couldn't find it anywhere.  2 days later I was in so much pain with my foot it had to be x-rayed.  Yes they found that sewing machine needle it had entered at the heel and they operated and removed it by my big toe.  I hadn't felt a thing.  No sense no feeling!

My award is now being passed on to:

1.  The lovely Fiona @ 

2.  Penelope by the Sea

Enjoy your award girls you deserve it.

Once next week is here I will post an update on an awful week and a few projects done!

Lots of love
