The one that almost got away!!!!

I was really pleased to find that I have received my first blog award a while ago and immediately set about writing this post all about it.  Then I wandered off to blog hop so that I could pass the award along, got distracted, and that was (almost) that!!  However, I have now remembered it and so...firstly huge Thank You to the lovely ladies who awarded it to me - Rachel and VJ.  Sorry for the delay ladies, but I have finally got around to posting about it!

Now for some blog rules:

1. Link back to the kind person who gave you the award - Done

2. Share 8 things - Done (see below)

3. Give the award to 8 bloggers  - Done (see below)

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards - just off to do this!

8 things about me

Some of this you may already know!

1. I absolutely adore the Christmas season and spend most of December going round with tinsel in my hair!
2. I started this blog to record my entries for Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class and share my Christmas with everyone!
3.  I am a Chartered Accountant (no, really, I am!)
4. I started back to work on 13th December after Maternity Leave and was dreading it from about October!
5. I absolutely hate housework and it is a constant battle to work up the energy to keep my house tidy and safe for a very mobile 10 month old! (When I drafted this it said *8* Month old!)
6. I am delighted to have two close scrapbooking friends and we now have fairly regular crop mornings together (much to the bemusement of non-scrapping friends!)
7. I seem to be one of the very few people I know that is not madly happy that Take That are back together - I hang my head in shame that I was such a fan when I was younger!
8. I have been married for two and a half years now and have still not put my wedding photos in their proper album - how terrible is that?!

Eight lovely bloggers - I have only had my blog a little while so this was actually the perfect excuse to do a bit of blog-hopping - apologies if you have had the award before!

1. Rachel - Rachel_B's World - an obvious choice, but I really love your blog!
2. Another obvious choice - Vicki - On The Marsh With Marsh 
3. Maria - ScrapLoveCreate - Love your digi layouts
 4. Sian - From High In The Sky - Really enjoy your stories!
5. Jacky - scrappyjacky - also some wonderful stories - thank you for sharing!
6. Shimelle - for the lovely sketches and fun classes
7. Sarah's Cards - for all the lovely page ideas that tempt me to buy lots of different supplies!
8. SJ - SJ's Little Musings - for the ever so lovely digi stamps and the gorgeous layouts!

This was really hard as I have discovered loads of new blogs lately, thank you all for reading!

    I totally agree with you on 1,2,5,6 and 7 [though our crops are in the evening].....and my blog started 2 years ago to post Journal Your Christmas.
