I’m Kreativ I Am!

As you know, I don’t usually post twice a day, but this post has been waiting in the wings for such a long time now 😦 My apologies to the lovely Chris xx

Chris over at The Kelworth Files has nominated me for The Kreativ Blogger Award πŸ™‚

Thank you so much Chris!


1. Thank and link back to the awarding blog.
2. Answer the seven questions.
3. Provide ten random factoids about yourself.
4. Last but not at all least, hand this on to seven deserving others.

I’m going to use the 7 questions Chris answered, so here goes……

1. What’s your favourite song?
Spooky, I was asked this recently, on my birthday post. The answer is Wonderwall by Oasis followed by All I Want Is You by U2…..I want them both played at my funeral πŸ˜‰

2. What’s your favourite dessert?
Tiramisu, but it use to be Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream. They don’t sell it here in the UK anymore 😦

3. What do you do when you’re upset?
Cry lol….I cry very easily. I’m the sort of person who finds it hard to hide how I’m feeling. My face usually gives away exactly how I feel lol.

4. Which is your favourite pet?
That’s really not fair 😦 I’ve had lots of animals over the years and they’ve all been very special to me, in their own way πŸ™‚ I could never pick a favourite.

5. Which do you prefer, black or white?
Black, definitely!!!! I think I should have been a Goth lol

6. What is your biggest fear?
I often have nightmares, and they’re usually about bad things happening to my pets, my kids, or my husband. I’ve often woken up in the middle of the night in a panic, or in tears because I’m convinced something has happened. I never have nice dreams lol

7. What is your attitude mostly?
Lol, ahhhhh, well, I think most people who know me would say I’m friendly, chatty and generally good natured. I have my moments of doom and gloom and I’m sure my hubby would say I’m a stroppy cow sometimes, but, I try to not let the little things get me down too much. I always say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry, and I try to live by that πŸ™‚

I’m gunna bend the rules a bit because I’ve bored you all a bit too much with facts about me recently lol. So I’ll skip that next part and just plough straight on to who I’m gunna pass this on to πŸ˜‰

The 7 bloggers who I am going to nominate are all very inspirational….please go and visit their sites, you might just like what you see πŸ™‚

Epiphany + A Blog Award

I had one of those moments. A moment when an absolutely blinding idea pops into your head, so big and exciting you grab for your note book.

I was watching daytime TV, something I don’t do very often, but I’d been out and left the TV on for Georgie (my Yorkie). Anyway, whilst sipping my cappuccino an item came on that just grabbed me, and within minutes I’d come up with the whole plot for my Nano novel for 2012 πŸ™‚

I was that excited by the idea I wanted to start writing then and there….but no, I will wait for November πŸ™‚

Do you ever have one of those moments? I have to say that this is probably the first time since I’ve been writing that an idea has struck me so hard πŸ˜‰ I might start to work on the synopsis before November, and I’ll post it here….then you can all tell me that really, its a crap idea lol πŸ˜‰

I’ve been nominated for a Kreativ Blogger Award by the lovely Ava at journeyofjordannaeast *blush* Thank you honey πŸ™‚


Soooo, list 7 facts about yourself and pass this award on to 7 other bloggers who you think deserve it.

I’m gunna run out of things to tell you about me at this rate lol πŸ˜‰

7 More Things About Me

2. I always name my Sims character Angel Child.

5. So far this year (since 1st January) I have watched 65 films/movies.

6. *whispers* I love the Twilight films (haven’t read any of the books lol) and I’m Team Edward πŸ˜‰

Yesterday’s prompt about the single bed conjured up soooo many ideas that I didn’t know where to start lol. I did though, finally…..Decide on a first person POV about a guy who’s left the marital home because his wife tells him she’s having an affair *cringe* 😦 Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to make something nice happen to him if I carry on with it πŸ™‚ Today’s prompt is the saxophone sound of midnight which seems a bit familiar……

WOW! :)


I am so chuffed right now! I’ve just received a Kreativ Blogger Award thanks to Sandra Madeira

Thank you sooooo much Sandra :o) When I started this Blog I didn’t expect anyone to read my ramblings, so it’s nice to know that someone does, and actually enjoys it!!!!! πŸ™‚

The Kreativ Blogger award rules are:

1. Share 10 things about yourself that readers may find interesting
2. Pass the award on to 6 other Bloggers. Be sure to leave a comment on their blogs to let them know.

Two Moons I haven’t been reading Jenny’s blog long, but, what I have seen so far is very entertaining.

Strangling My Muse I love Sandy Ackers blog πŸ™‚ If I’m ever stuck for something to write about, this is the place to go!
