Awards and a game of TAG !

 Interior Designers Julie and Danni have a lovely blog
called t & g interiors where they post beautiful photos of interiors.
 This week they gave me the 'Blog on Fire' Award, but having just received one,
 I redirected them to my recent post here.
Then my dear friend Olga @ stardust decor and style passed on the
Versatile Blogger Award to me.

For this award, I need to tell you seven random facts about myself
 and pass it on to 10 other bloggers.

So seven very random facts !

a) I only learnt to copy and paste in October, when I started this blog.
b) Every single time I type I forget which button to press to get the top
or bottom row "34£%6&8)-=^"!!!
c) I write a post and then erase about half of it - I ramble too much !
d) I have no clue what the 'ctrl' button does
e) Every time I have gone for ) I get 0 - seriously I do - lol
f0 Just did it again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
g) I have never pressed anything on the top row of the keyboard.

Ten bloggers will be named at the bottom of this post !
 I also got tagged in a game of TAG by KL from eternalicons
and now 'I am IT' and so here are the rules.
  1. You must post the rules.
  2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
  3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
  4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post
  5. Let them know you've tagged them!

So, as I have listed 7 facts already, here are 4 more.
h)  I love my dog to pieces
i)  I've had cats before, but he is my first dog.
j) I'd quite like to work in an animal sanctuary.
l) Did I mention that I love him to pieces !!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's scruffy because he's petrified of the dog parlour !

Now I have to answer 11 questions
  1. What is the number one thing on your 'bucket list'?  Learning a different language.

  3. What is your favourite drink (either Alcoholic or non)?A double shot latte or Earl Grey Tea.
  4. What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?  Chickens feet ! Although I didn't really eat them, I just pretended to, because I'd already refused 3 other things.

And if I didn't TAG you and you'd like to join in, please do!
Phew - it's a lot of work, so if you don't wish to take part -
I quite understand !


  1. So I stopped by to congratulate you on your award. New driver and computer-ista all in a year? And you look a little bit in your picture like Angelina Jolie or maybe it's Octomom the Angelina Jolie wannabe? I'll have to google Ms. Rosselini to see. Either way in the looks department it's a compliment (just hope you don't act like either of them).

    So are you giving a tutorial how I'm suppose to do this thing? First I'm just gonna read Otter's post.
