A noise that only bats and dogs can hear…


one lovely blog award

…  that’s the noise that I made when I picked up the comment telling me about the The One Lovely Blog Award / The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  Try as I might I cannot find out from where the awards originally hale so alls I can tell you is that I was gobsmacked to have received a nomination.  As I have only just this week past the ’50th post’ post I’m a real newbie to the world of blogging and thus far I have been made to feel so very welcome.  Thank you.  For the nomination.  For reading.  For writing.

So if you don’t mind I’m going to graciously thank my nominator – Mercury – Handmade Fashion who makes the most delicious items, look, felt spiced owls!  Next I’m going to share 7 things with you and finally I’m going on to nominate 10 others.

7 things

  • I really am a librarian.
  • I don’t read anywhere near as much as most folks expect given the above profession.  Especially fiction.  Ask me, and I will expect you’ll be disappointed to find that I won’t have read it.  Not even Fifty Shades of Grey.
  • Nature or nurture?  Did I inherit some crafty gene or was it early intervention on the part of my female relatives?  Mum taught me to sew, Gran taught me to knit and crochet.
  • I used to count trees for a living, oh and measure roads.
  • One of the most rewarding bits of volunteering that I ever did was foster cats.  The full range from gorgeous bundles of kittendom to camera fearing previously semi-feral adults.
  • I harbour a secret desire to re-discover Macramé.  Remember Macramé?  We did Macramé at school.
  • I’m a scifi geekette, I’ve even been to conventions.  Although not in costume which is the usual follow-up question to that particular revelation.  Although Princess Leia in the gold bikini does hold a particular place in my psyche.

My 10 nominees  (in alphabetical order that’s possibly a librarian thing right there).
