So far - so good :)

March started well - sunshine, a giveaway win and then an award :)

This one - from Bellaboo @ Bellacountry ;

I've got to tell you 7 things about me -

1. I was born in Berlin as my Dad was stationed in Germany with the RAF - and despite all the teasing at school that makes me British.

2. I've not flown in an aeroplane since I was 2 1/2 when my parents moved back to the UK.

3. Apart from my large collection of siblings (6), I've got an enormous family on my Dad's side - remaining are - 1 Grandma, 9 Uncles, 8 Aunts, 20 1st cousins, 5 2nd cousins & 1 3rd cousin - plus loads of great aunts & uncles!

4. I've appeared on Saturday Superstore with my high school wind-band - I played the tamborine :)

5. I don't drive - tried learning hated it and tbh wasn't any good at it.

6. My worst ever hangover was the result of an evening with Country Girl, MrCG & MrVV.

7. Mr Country Girl was best man @ our wedding.

Now need to pass this award on some other people - no idea how many - think its supposed to be 5 - so I'll aim for that too.  This is the part I always find difficult - if I've not choosen you its not personal - just these 5 sprung to mind today;

I've also signed myself up for this;

@ http://josie-mary.blogspot.com/2010/02/whats-in-bag.html- have a look you might want to join in too.

Off now to leave messages for my award receipients and then I'm off out today shopping with one of my sisters - wonder what bargains we'll find?

See you soon

Thank you very much for the award. I am pretty envious of your large family. MadDad and I are just one of two. I wanted a large family, but it isnt to be.

I so did not need reminding of that hangover. Actually, I must confess that I have suffered as badly on a couple of occasions since then!

Hi there.
I love your new header, especially the patchwork - great colours.
And thank you for the award! I've already received that one though and posted my 7 things about me. I'll link back to it when I acknowledge your award on my blog. Very touched that you thought of me!

Thank you for the award,

The one that most gobsmacked me, was not being on an aeroplane since you were 2.5. Do you still travel around Europe or just stay in England?

As for having six brothers and sisters, how fabulous. Bet you had a great time growing up.

My Grandad was in the RAF. I used to love watching Saturday Superstore xx

Hope the shopping went well! I can't drive either, tried to learn twice and bloody hated every second. I've got to nearly 30 without learning so I think it might stay that way now!
