Look what I found... (+ award time!)


I came across this while I was looking around on Pinterest earlier and I thought some of you might be interested. I know it's a little late, but that doesn't matter, we can catch up! I know many of you love to take photos and even more of you love a challenge so it seemed kind of perfect. I might try it, even just a few of them, it seemed like a cute little challenge for the month :)

Now for the award... A great big, huge, fat, snuggly thank you to the lovely Dana for giving me this award:

Here are the required 10 random facts about me:

1. I spent the majority of my childhood wishing to be grown up and now that I am grown up, I spend the majority of my time wishing I was a child again.

2. I'd like to be cool and sophisticated and sip on iced lattes while I rush to important meetings wearing my sunglasses, but I secretly think that they taste like what happens when your hair gets stuck in the wrong end of the hairdryer.

3. I never leave the house without my mini book of flowers, just incase I come across a wild flower that I'd like to know the name of.

4. I think that tea and biscuits can cure anything.

5. I am a total space geek and love to spend my evenings staring up at the sky, finding constellations and planets.

6. I always have a hairband round my wrist and get kind of frantic if I find it's not there.

7. If I met up with you, I'd probably bring cake.

8. I adore picnics.

9. I love mornings. I love to wake up early and make something special for breakfast. I love to take walks in the cool morning air and don't understand how people can sleep in until late - those who wake up late often don't get a chance to see the sun before it hides behind the clouds!

10. Whenever I hear an ice cream van, I turn into a 5 year old, leap out of bed and go and press my face up against the window. If it happens to stop, I can be out there in 3 seconds flat.

I'm allowed to give this award to 6 others and it's so difficult to pick just 6. However, I've chosen LauraGailHazelJojoBecca & Lisa

EDIT: I want to give this award to Sabrina too. Sorry award people, but 6 creative blogs just isn't enough! I'm sneaking someone else in!

  1. Aww thank you so much! I always wear a hairband round my wrist too and love looking up at the stars as well :)

  2. Thank you sweetie!!!
    You made my day!!!

  3. Grats on the award. :) And that photo challenge looks awesome, I may do a couple of them too. Stressing the word "may", though. Lol. Thanks for sharing!

  4. the fact that you would probably have cake if you met me--makes me know i would really like you---and an early riser too---:)

  5. OMG thank you soooo much! I am truly honoured!!! Loved the facts about you. And I agree with you on the taste of lattes, hot OR cold! :D

  6. Thank you! I agree with number 1, adulthood seems so glamorous until you actually experience it! As for number 2, I've given up trying to be sophisticated! Also, tea and biscuits absolutely can cure anything. :)

  7. Congratulations on your award! :) I loved getting to know you a little bit by reading this!! Your window story had me laughing out loud. SERIOUSLY.

    Ha, I'm like Laura...I think I've given up on sophistication also! #3, 7, and 10 are the best. I need to work on waking up early and not being grumpy. Today I miraculously woke up at 6:00 (it's usually 7:00), and I feel much more productive after my walk with the dogs and seeing the sun peek through the clouds.

  8. I love the second one. You made me laugh!

    I'm also an early-riser. On the weekends, my husband can sleep until well past noon. I don't get it...

    Oh, I love cake! ;)

  9. Love the May photo assignments, such a great idea! Also love the idea of gifting granola in a little jar, you're right, it would make a perfect little gesture. Thanks for stopping by and commenting

  10. I love the photo a day's! It helps with inspiration! Congrats on the award!!! xoxo A-

  11. Congrats on finishing the A-Z and on getting an award :-)
    Loving your new photo challenge and I may take that up. Did you see the fullmoon a couple of days ago? It is the biggest it will get this year. Pretty cool. X

  12. Hi! I love the photo challenge, it looks great I am so happy I found this I will so try and do it next month :p
    Oh and by the way, I love your blog, congrats on all the awards, you sure deserve them! ;)

    Have a nice day!

  13. I've been so lazy since the challenge that I will run with this award! Thank you!

  14. Aw! I enjoyed reading facts about you, darling you sweet sweet girl! We're almost alike in so many things, and it keeps getting me goosebumps.

    Love you! Stay beautiful ♥

  15. Ooooh I love the idea of doing a photo a day in May! I may have to jump on that bandwagon...


  16. Thank you lovely :) I'm a bit behind with commenting back and all due to revision that is slowly but surely taking over my life! I am aiming at putting up the post for it on Friday I can't decide who to give it too so will have a little think over the next few days (when I should be revising :P)

    Thank you again :) and I love all of your facts! xx
