I’m Awesome

This weeks prompt for I Must Confess is ‘Why I’m Awesome’ and I just knew that I couldn’t resist a title like that. I am self confessed Queen of Awesomness. I’m awesome just ask me, I’ll tell you.  I think people will struggle with this one as it’s really hard to say nice things about yourself in an open forum. My suggestion? Don’t take it so damn seriously.  It’s life, it’s not like you get out alive. read more

You’re a winner!

I was going to just edit the Palmolive giveaway post but decided to make a special post dedicated to the winners of the giveaway!  Firstly, thank you to everyone who entered. I was a little worried about my first giveaway and thought that no one would enter! So I was blown away with the response that I got. There are so many great entries that it made my decision so hard. There was lots of household chores included that I hate just as much as you guys. The first winner is MichVee with this entry:

‘ The ironing’s a nightmare, not a sweet dream
A simple task that makes me scream!
A family of five ensures the basket’s chock a block
Pants, party dresses, and even the odd sock!
Uniforms, tops, and even jeans
It’s the worst part of my housework routines!!!’

Awards coming out my arse!

  I’ll admit when the link appeared on my Facebook Page, I was a little apprehensive. It kind of sounded like a virus lol.  Thankfully it was not, it was the beautiful Lee from Mother Load giving me a Liebster Award.  What the hell is that? you ask? Well…  “The award  is given to support and recognise up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (on their blog) or likers (on their Facebook page). The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins and is reported to mean sweetest,  kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. By following some basic rules (answer 11 questions set by your nominee, write 11 questions of your own and pass the award onto 11other  bloggers to answer) it enables readers to get to know new bloggers and connect  with a wider audience.” All these people thinking I’m sweet and cute is really starting to mess with my rep but I won’t say no to a chance at getting some other lovely bloggers recognised! My Questions asked by Lee:  1. Why did you start blogging? This questions is easy because I have already written a post about it!
2. How often do you post on your blog? It’s usually a few days a week, averaging about 3-4.  I don’t really have a schedule.3. Beach or Mountains? Ooo this is a hard one, both a beautiful. I would have to say mountains though because I hate, hate, hate getting sand everywhere.4. Country or City? Definitely city. I love being able to go and buy something and not having to take a mortgage out to do it.5. Do you find blogging a chore or a joy? At the moment it is definitely a joy. I think when it becomes a chore it’s time to take a break.6. Have you ever considered giving up blogging? Not giving it up altogether no, but I have taken a few breaks when there just seems to be nothing coming out of my brain that is worth writing down.7. What do you really want for Christmas? A nice smooth Christmas Day, with no arguments.8. Boys or girls – which one is easier? I only have experience with boys so I can’t really say which is easier.9. Are you more creative or analytical? Analytical10. Planner or just see what happens? Planner. I freak out if I don’t know what the hell is going on.11. The future of your blog? I’m just taking things as they come at the moment. I’m really happy with where I am heading and love getting my words out there.

    The lovely blogger that is Robomum has tagged me for a Sunshine Award.  I’m so thankful to her 🙂 “The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers. The recipients of the Sunshine Award are: “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere”. The way the award works is this: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Answer questions about yourself.

Summer is easily my favourite time of the year. I hate being cold and love being able to go swimming. I also love being able to go out for dinner and not have to wear 10 layers because I feel the cold really easily. =&0=&
