Thanks Victoria from Brusselspouts for this award!

I haven't received one of these for a while, probably since I am useless at passing them along. I love getting the awards but it's really hard thinking up 7 people to pass them along to.

These are the rules:

1. Copy the award picture and post on your blog
2. Thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself that we don't know - This is probably impossible since I blog, Tweet, Facebook, email and talk on the phone daily with or to a lot of you, but here goes:
  • Most of my clothes were homemade when I was growing up - I was too tall and a bit too chubby for kids' sizes. I made deals with mum - I would make dinner while she sewed.
  • I hardly ever cook Japanese food.
  • I'm a night owl and HATE waking up in the morning.
  • Before I had Biggie I was an avid reader. Then mummy-brain set in. Now I find it quite difficult to really concentrate so I often have to read the same paragraph over and over again.
  • I'd love to learn to scuba dive but I injured my eardrum when I was a teenager (diving off the wharf in the Bay of Islands, NZ).
  • I wish I had red hair. Like Julia Roberts.
  • I cry when I watch sad TV programs or movies and tear up at children's recitals.
4. Choose 7 other bloggers to pass the award to
5. Link to those 7 other bloggers - I can only manage 5 even this night owl has to sleep sometime.

Wouldn't it beloverly

  1. Thanks so much for the links to those blogs! I love seeing new ones to follow.

    I have been following you for a few weeks and think your blog is great. Reminds me of Japan, inspires me to sew more and I love your creations.

    Keep on blogging! I think you're just wonderful.

  2. Wow - I know it's ages ago, but I didn't even notice this! Thank you so much - you are so sweet! :)
