What a week of surprises!
No, not just the return of winter here in the UK, or the dreadful earthquake/tsunami in Japan. I got another award! Thanks to Carol for giving me this Stylish Blogger Award. It's a major surprise because I've never thought of myself as stylish. Unlike some bloggers I don't obsess about which pair of shoes to wear - for me it's the wellies or nothing, I'm afraid. However I accept it with humble gratitude, and in line with the conditions attached here are 7 (slightly) interesting things about me:
1 My first full time job was as a nutter. No, really. I worked in a chocolate factory putting the walnuts on Walnut Whips.
2. I have only eaten crab once and it made me violently ill. I've never risked it again.
3. My feet are size 5.
4. My hat size is 7 1/4.
5. The first story I remember writing was about St George and the Dragon.
6. I once won a million pounds in a bet with Elspeth Hopper that the sun was further away than the moon - and she still owes me!
7. My pet hate is bad spelling.
So there you go. Here are my nominations for this award:
Rosalie Warren - Reeling and Writhing
Steven Chapman - Writer
Trees Are Not Lollipops
