Welcome to my blog - a collection of thoughts and musings on the world of writing, books and all those wordy type things.

How sweet!

I was honoured and super chuffed to be awared the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award by the lovely Carol and it truly made my day.

In spirit of making friends, and hopefully passing on happiness I would like to nominate the following bloggers to receive the award (and apologies there are not more nominees but I'm still quite new to all this so still in the process of building my blog reading list!).

The always inspiring and entertaining Lynne
The ever helpful and full of information Patsy

As part of accepting this award, I am required to tell you seven things about myself...hence the reason for the delay in posting. I have been trying to think! But here goes...
  1. I have absolutely no sense of direction in general but can navigate the Tube without a hitch
  2. I'm not too keen on heights but once abseiled and loved it
  3. In Class 7 at primary school, I was chosen to be the May Queen at the church service
  4. I once won a bowling prize on a works' outing despite normally being absolute rubbish at bowling. (The boss wasn't pleased I got a higher score than him...wonder if that had anything to do with me getting passed over for promotion...)
  5. I once stroked a man's hair in a shop before realising in horror that it wasn't actually my husband, who had moved
  6. I'm frightened of flying but once did 13 flights in five weeks
  7. My favourite lolly is a lemonade sparkle but they're incredibly hard to find these days
Thanks again, Carol x


  1. You're welcome Maxi.
    I remember those lollies too.:-)

  2. Thanks for the award! (As you just spotted I've already had it so will opt out, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the thought)

    I have no sense of direction either. I don't like heights and once abseiled - nearly. I put on the harness thing and walked backwards along the ground, but then they wanted me to climb a ladder and jump off the top of a water tower! No way.


I love to hear your feedback, thoughts and ideas but please be kind and play nice so that it's enjoyable for everyone. Thank you :)
