Versatile Blogger Award

Hi folks

Came on to do my weekend blog reading catch up and found out that Scully at Canadian D-gal had very kindly nominated me for the versatile blogger award :)


There are 4 things that you must do in order to accept this award:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Share seven things about yourself
3. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic
4. Notify your nominees

1. Thank the person who gave you the award:
I am thanking Scully! A Canadian blogger who I've been following pretty much since I started my blog, and who I've hopefully introduced to some brill diabetes t-shirts!

2. Share seven things about yourself:

1. One of my worst habits is nail biting. I've been doing it since I could chew and have been caught in many school photo's biting away. I do have spells of letting them grow but then something happens or I get stressed and the nails are first to get it! Tried that stuff you dip your fingertips in to stop biting... but I kinda scrubbed it off :D

2. I like going to comedy gigs and in the past couple of years I've been to see Dara O'Briain, Rhod Gilbert, John Bishop, Jethro and I'm off to see Ross Noble at the beginning of December.

3. My favourite place to go on holiday is Orlando in Florida. We've been going there since I was about 6 and are going again next year as it'll probably be our last family holiday as just us 4. Love the theme parks/attractions and despite the food I never put on any weight as we do so much walking! :)

4. I really really really don't like creepy crawlies. If you come near me with one that's it, you're off the Xmas card list for good. I hate it when there's a story in the paper on some kid finding a tarantula in a shoe, and they have to show a mahoooosive picture with no warning on the page before ¬_¬ Not everyone loves big hairy spiders!!!!!!

5. Hate long advert breaks on TV but I absolutely hate the Go Compare man. (If you don't know who that is then YouTube it - please don't blame me if you end up chucking something at the screen whilst watching it)

6. I have a really sensitive nose, which means lots of things make me sneeze :( Strong perfumes/aftershaves can set me off in a matter of seconds which always amuses the girls at work. Plus I have hayfever, so the summer months are always fun! It means if I want to buy flowers for a birthday or something I can't step foot in a florists, someone else has to do it for me or I buy them from Sainsburys XP

7. It takes me a while to trust new people as I've been let down by many so-called friends over the past few years. I'm the last person on the list to call when they're bored but the first when they need advice. But over the past year and a bit the only people who have helped throughout are my family and girls from work who I've only known for about 2 years. So I've stopped being a doormat, told a few home truths and now have much better friends :D

3. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.

7. Notify your nominees:
If you follow me, consider yourselves notified! :D
