Lovely Awards

I've been kindly awarded a couple of blog awards which I've been meaning to blog about.

The lovely Lakota of faith hope and charity shopping awarded two blog awards:

Thank you Lakota, and if you haven't already checked out her blog - where have you been?

I was also kindly awarded this award:

From vainglorysinner and Da Lama, both fabulous chicks with fabulous blogs (you have to check them out too as they are stars). This award is nominated to highlight those blogs of under 300 followers.

Now I am to nominate 5 blogs to pass these awards onto. Its really hard to choose between all the amazing blogs I read (and I love them all) so I'm going to nominate some blogs that I haven't passed an award to yet. These are:
foof and faff
madison makes
miss ginger makes
tete en l'air

Check them out! 
Now for 5 fun facts about me...

1) When I was young my dream was to be in the cast of 'Starlight Express' . I learnt every song and used to dance around on my roller skates *cringe*....

2)... Someone however stole my skating ability and I can now no longer skate, ice skate or roller blade.

3) I once broke my wrist whilst under the influence of cider - I had walked home in bare feet and decided to wash my feet in the kitchen sink.  Wet feet + tile floor + cider = ouch!

4) I hate queue jumpers  - totally pisses me off (how very British of me!) ;o)

5) Being a Elvis fan it would have been rude for me not to have visited Graceland. I have been twice and actually spent Christmas in 'Heartbreak Hotel' which is opposite the Kings house.  Yes I was in good company of some fabulous oldies and Elvis loving nut-jobs on Christmas day ;o)

Now I really should take some photos of my latest buys....

  8. I have never been able to rollerskate and clung to the sides as all my friends whizzed past me when rollerskating was the only thing to do on a Friday night. I still dream of being able to rollerskate one day...my girls are both pro's and the little one is a figure skater...they certainly didn't inherit their ability from me!
    Congrat's on your awards Scarlett x

  9. Well done, Scarlett! I thought at first I'd got a soulmate when you said you hated jumpers, then I noticed the queue bit! xxx

  10. Oh, oh, oh! My first ever awards! Thank you! Thank you so much Scarlett. Now must figure out how to get the buttons onto my blog. This may take some time(!)

  21. Ah thanks! Shall sort out a wee post soon! Totally agree about the queue jumpers, I think its the height of rudeness! Wont tell you about the time when I worked at a supermarket checkout and some old posh lady and I had a falling out about her queue jumping... (I was not cut out for retail1) :)
