CBA On A Friday! (Though It’s Saturday now!)

Friday marks the end of my placement week, and I’ve come home to another award nomination from my wonderful blog-pal Erika Kind! She has nominated me for The Creative Blogger Award this time!
Woe! Thank you so much Erika, I always appreciate being thought of for these awards, and from an amazing blogger like you, well, it’s even more special!


Here are the Rules:

* Display the Creative Blogger Award logo on your blog
* Nominate blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
* Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important)
* Share 5 random facts about yourself to your readers
* Pass these rules on to them

Five facts about me…

  1. I am just slightly obsessed with Magnum ice creams… in fact I’m eating one now!!!
  2. I have a thing about hats… nearly every year I buy one or two summer hats, and in the winter, various woolly hats, but I never wear them! They are sat above my wardrobe, looking at me, waiting for me to decide when would be a good time to wear them!
  3. I love board games!!!! Scrabble, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuits… love a family board game night!!!
  4. I am a hoarder… I cannot throw things away! I have pile and piles of stuff.. that is ‘too useful’ to get rid of! but then you know what, I know I should bin it, and that I probably will never need it, but its Sod’s Law…. when I DO get round to making myself separate myself from my beloved junk… I end up needing that very thing, within a week!
  5. I am terrible at investing in fitness gear… only to see it collecting dust, or becoming a clothes horse within a few weeks!! I have various machines and things, and they are all great! But not great when I don’t actually use them!

And my nominees are….

1951 Club
10 Years A Single Mom
A Momma’s View
Ankit Mishra
Emotional Luggage

As always, please don’t feel obliged to accept, but if you d,. please let me know, I love to read your new facts!

7 (new) things about me!

1. I love a simple ham sandwich…just ham and butter on white bread… Simplicity itself, and so tasty!!!

2. I can’t STAND smelly feet!!!! Seriously, it’s one of my pet hates!!! That odour… Makes me retch!

3.I once went on a midnight forest walk… Part of a hen weekend in Wales. We encountered a group of ‘hippies’ and they were gathered in a large circle singing, and doing something because there was a full/new moon, or something like that! They got excited, seeing a group of Indian girls, enthusiastically asking us if we knew any ‘bhajans’, religious Hindu songs, but none of us were religious. They weren’t disappointed though, we launched into a few popular Bollywood songs, stayed with them for half an hour and left them, singing and playing their drums!

4. I used to have a pet stick insect. It was so boring educational… I’d watch the jar for hours, and it did nothing!!!

5. My favorite Disney movie of all times is The Jungle Book!!! I Love Love Love it!! All the songs, and the characters!!

6. I’ve recently become a granola, fruit and yoghurt convert for breakfast… Who knew it tasted so good??!! And healthy too!

7. I love creating displays at school! That really gets my creative juices flowing! Making something to display and celebrate the kids work, but also to encourage more learning! Its lime a little work of art every time!!!
