Passing on the Stylish Blogger Award

Sometime in April, whilst we were all busy A to Zing, Sylvia and her blog Word Doodles was kind enough to present me with the Stylish Blogger Award.

And so now I have finally got around to passing the award on.

Now as far as I have been able to ascertain the rules are that I have to tell you 6 (or 7) things about me that you don't already know. And then pass the award on to a handful of blogs.

So then 6 (or 7) things you don't know about me... hmm, what to tell you? Well here goes...

1.Some of you may already be aware that I have Type 1 Diabetes, and that I've had it for just over 11 years. But what you probably don't know is that I was 14 years old when I was diagnosed - I know it's gripping stuff isn't it?

2.I have a BA degree in History of Art and Design.

3.When I was little (about 4 or 5 years old I think) I wanted to be an author. Then I went through various phases of wanting to be all sorts from an archaeologist to a fashion designer. And now I have come round full circle and want to be an author again.

4.I was a HUGE fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or as they were known in the UK Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles). I still am really...

5.The Incredible Hulk used to scare me... to the point that I haven't seen either of the films that were recently made.

6.I am ridiculously quiet and shy in 'real' life.

7.I like to take the dust jacket off hardback books and 'ooh' and 'aah' over the book itself... I've even done that whilst still stood in the shop!

    Now here comes the tough part. Trying to decide who to pass the award on to...

    It was tough... I would have liked to have given this award to everyone... but it would have taken me quite some time to list and then visit everyone to let them know. So singling individuals out has been difficult.

    So I pass the Stylish Blogger Award on to (whether they already have it or not!):

    Holly at Holly Ruggiero's POV
    Lindz at Rapturous Randomocity
    Tizzy at Impossible Dreams
    Ttofee at Ttofee For Your Thoughts

    and I think I'll pick one more but who shall it be... who shall it be?


    And Lola at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword

    Will all award winners please approach the stage (blog) so that they can collect their award. :-)

    This post has taken me about a week to write!!!

    I'll be honest with you here, I don't like dust jackets. They are pretty and all but they get in the way while I'm reading and tend to just irritate me.

    Thanks so much for the award.

    I love reading blog posts about people who won awards because you learn so much about them because almost every award goes with a Q&A. So it's great to get to know you better!

    Duncan - it didn't take me long to write the main bulk of the post. It was just trying to decide who to pass the award on to that took a week!
