The Sunshine Award + The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I recently got The Sunshine Award nominated by Alice @ Mutterings of a Teenager and The Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Hannah @ The Hannah Lucy Diaries, it goes without saying it put a huge smile on my face. Thank you so much to both of you! Please check their blogs out, they're both really lovely people.

I'd only heard briefly of the Sunshine Award before. It's an award given by bloggers to other bloggers who brighten your day and encourage you to grow your blog and yourself. It's so nice to know that someone thinks that of my blog and I'm really glad people enjoy reading it. And to get another nomination for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award (the explanation speaks for itself) made me feel even happier. Being part of the blogging community is so much fun and I'm so glad I've started blogging and am now a part of it.

I thought I'd put them both in the same post seeing as I have to write 7 facts for each and thought it would make more sense if I just shared the facts between the two. I'm not someone who finds it easy to think of facts about myself, but who is?

  3. thanks sophie. your cat is so cute.x

  4. Sophie thank you so much!!!!! I am really flattered that you nominated me for this :)) I have, over the past couple of years, taken part in this type of award a couple of times, and unfortunately I can't fit in a blog post to pass it on (I schedule posts up to three weeks in advance), but I will give you seven facts about myself here if that's okay...?

    1. If I had to be any animal I'd be a giraffe. Without question.
    2. I can't bear being an age that's an odd number. So even though I was 41 last birthday, I prefer saying I'll be "42 next birthday".
    3. I find writing on bananas with a biro utterly satisfying.
    4. I've been married twice but never had a proposal of marriage (sob, sob!!).
    5. I'm teaching myself to play the bongos. It's taking a while.
    6. I went to the same school as Jane Austen (not at the same time - I'm not THAT old)!
    7. I've never seen a single Harry Potter movie, episode of Downton Abbey or Coronation Street. Ever.

    Hope they're interesting enough! BTW I can do the thing with my eyes as well (your fact no.2)...!

    Thanks again my lovely, take care

    Catherine x
