to the fabulous chateaudelille who passed on this award, I was truly both thrilled and surprised (and possibly ovewhelmed a teensy bit) to be included in a list of such gorgeousness.
With accepting this award, there are three rules ~
1) Thank and link back to the person whom awarded you
2) Share 7 things about yourself
3) Award great bloggers that you've recently discovered
4) Contact the above and tell them of the award
So the 7 things I share about me are -
I am an Early Childhood teacher (currently on leave)
I love lychees, seafood and really really good chocolate (but not all on the same plate!) but my guilty pleasure is hot chips eaten sans children!!
I love to cook and I read and collect cookbooks avidly the way some people read fiction novels, I love finding new recipes for gorgeous food and tweaking them to suit our tastes or coming up with my own ideas for fabulous food
but ....having said that, I will admit that I have been known at the end of a super busy day, to make bacon and eggs for dinner (oh the shame haha!)
there are rooms in my house I haven't blogged about because they are the rooms in my house where furniture goes to die
My favourite appliance is my KitchenAid mixer but I wish I had trusted my instincts and bought a white one (oh the regrets!)
I watch Escape to the Country every Friday and Sunday nights (but am really missing Catherine Gee!!)
I'm almost embarrassed to blog this morning. In fact, I'm sneaking in, very very quietly!!
It's been soooo long. But I just found a few quiet minutes in this mad house this morning and thought I'd jump on and catch up on a few blogs and then I thought I'd better catch up on my own!!
Still here, just been a bit busy is all, real life got in the way a bit, but it's all settling now as we're finding our feet in new routines and new rhythms! I have taken leave from work for a spell, our oldest daughter changed schools and with all the usual chaos and madness that comes with having four children and a busy lifestyle, blogging took a back seat!
