Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!

Oooohhhh I'm so excited tonight, Lee at CRAFTYLOOPS has given me this award and it's the first blog award I've had!

Thanks soooo much Lee, it's really appreciated

It will be cherished and entered into my sidebar lol

If I'm doing this right I have to tell you seven things you don't know about me?!

1. I am the youngest of 4 children,  my brother is next in line - he is 9 years and 3 weeks older than me.

2. I can touch my nose with my tongue!

3. I got kicked out of the school choir in primary school for being out of tune - an amazing feat as I was miming at the time!!

4. I love cooking and have a huge stash of recipe books,  some of which have never been used lol

5. I have 5 nephews and 2 nieces but have only ever met two of them - the other 5 live in NZ and I'm hoping to visit them in a few years.

6. I am terrified of spiders/snakes and frogs.

7. I took 3 attempts to pass my driving test.

Keep an eye out in a week when I'll be returning the favour and sending the award on to 7 more deserving blogs.
