Oh My!

I settled down this Sunday afternoon, frosty Mojito in hand, and guess what I found?  My sweet friend, Melissa from, awarded me with TWO awards!  Now this hasn't happened in a while - my heart pounded as I read her list of lucky bloggers - and my name was there!  WHOO HOO!  Thank you Melissa!

Now the conditions of these awards are, firstly to tell 7 things about yourself and then to award them to 10 - 15 bloggers who you think deserve them!  Remember, if you're a lucky blogger, don't forget to thank the person who awarded you and link your post to their blog! Let's go!

  1. I totally love my dry white wine, winter, autumn, summer or spring with LOADS of ice!
  2. Although I grew up in a racing family with horses around me all the time, I am completely allergic to them and have never ridden one!
  3. I hate vegetables - yes, I said that!!  Raw or in a salad, ok, but cooked?  Just not my best!
  4. David Essex is and remains my favourite artist of all time!  It horrifies me to see how many people have never heard of him :(
  5. I am dreadfully short sighted and cannot go anywhere without my specs!
  6. I am secretly a kareoke fan - I LOVE to sing along!
  7. I am always fighting the battle of the bulge - got to lose 7kg's in time for the Durban July!  The theme is a Royal Affair and I have the perfect dress and hat - just have to fit into it!
And now for these lucky bloggers who so deserve these awards:

In my best Elvis voice I'm saying: "Thank you, thank you very much!"

Ooh lucky me !!! Thank you so much, Janet!! Sadly I don't keep up with loads of other bloggers - silly excuse but don't have the time :( busy mornings, even busier afternoons and a hubby who always complains that I sit in front of the computer too much at night after dinner, dishes etc !!
Nice new young man for Stacey - she looks happy!
Looks like you're back to blogging again - good for you .. hope all is going well.
