The Versatile Blogger Award

12 April 2012

Hurrah! My first blogging award! I am so honoured!

Here I was spending the evening baking cupcakes for my work's team meeting tomorrow {aren't my colleagues lucky!} and I have a sneaky look at my blog and see this! Many many many thanks to Aimee at Everything's Rosey for giving me this award, go and check out her lovely blog... well do it after you've read this post!

It seems that with blogging awards of this type, there are some rules which go along with it, these rules spread the blogging love! Here they are:

1. Thank the blogger who has awarded you and link back to them.
2. Share seven things about yourself
3. Pass the award along to 5 other newly discovered blogs

So here goes with my 7 things about me:

1 // When I was pregnant with Oliver I was convinced we were having a girl so I was a bit shocked when he was born. We found out the sex when I was pregnant with Lydia!

2 // My first job was when I was 13 years old. I worked in a Green Grocers shop for an hour a day after school, weighing out and bagging organic foods. I got paid £5 a week.

3 // Me and my best friend once went on holiday to Ayia Napa in Cyprus... we got really drunk on the first night and went to our first ever Foam Party! 

4 // I really want an iPad or tablet thingy.

5 // I have watched every single series of Big Brother {not the celebrity ones though, I can't stand them!)

6 // My hubby is one of six children. All but one of them who has had children has had a boy first. 

7 // The first ever concert I went to was Jason Donovan at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. I think it must have been 1989 as I was 14 years old. I was a huge fan!

So there you go! 

Now I'm going to pass on the award to these lovely bloggers. Go and have a look at their brilliant blogs that I've recently discovered!

Mummy's Cheeky Monkey
Boy Oh Boy
Sanderson Smith Story
A Cupcake Mum
Our Orange Crush

For those who I've nominated here are the rules: 1. Link back to who nominated you. 2. Write seven things about your lovely selves. 3. Nominate five other blogs to receive the award.

Sorry if any of you have already done it or already been tagged, I haven't checked as I have to rush back to my cupcakes now!


  1. Well bless your cotton socks! Very flattered that you thought of me and my blog, especially as it's very much in its infancy. Now you leave me the tricky task of thinking of seven interesting things...mmmmmm....Rx

    1. Us newbie bloggers must support each other and your blog is fab! X

  2. Great answers. Ahh foam parties, that brings back memories. Usually involving lots of disgusting tasting cheap drinks, ruining nice outfits and regretting snogging some random. The joys of youth!

  3. My greatest memory of a foam party is waking up the next morning with my hair sticking up vertically from my head! x


I would love to hear from you... please leave me a comment :)
Feel free to give your website address so I can visit you back!
