a cherry on top

The lovely Lea has nominated me for a blog award:

Thanks Lea, both for the award and for the lovely comments you always leave on my blog! If you'd like to check out Lea's blog you can find it here:, she makes cute cards and pretty scrapbook pages!

To accept the award, I have to do a few of other things. First, list 3 facts about myself, I've gone for some random things I don't think I've mentioned here before:

1. When I got married, a donkey walked past the window halfway through the ceremony and made everyone laugh. I didn't mind being upstaged by a donkey, as my wedding day was all about having fun!

2. I've done a bit of travelling, and one of my favourite days was when I went on my own to an art gallery / museum in Phnom Penh in Cambodia. There was a tropical rainstorm and I sat inside the building sketching the carved stone figures whilst the rain crashed down and swept a refreshing mist through the building (no glass in the windows). Then to find a tuk-tuk to get back to the hostel I had to wade through thigh high water in the flooded streets. It felt like a real adventure.

3. My favourite book is Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis. I first read it when I was about 8, and every time I read it again it brings back the sense of magic that I had then. I can't wait for the film to come out!

I also need to post a picture I love. I have a lot of them, but this one of my daughter is my screen saver at the moment:

Finally, I need to nominate five more people for this award. I know this award has been zooming around blogland for the last week or so, but I don't think any of these people have received it yet:

Please check their blogs out, I love them all for their mix of posts and various creative ways!

We're having a barbeque tonight as the weather is reasonable here, so I'm off to prep! xxx
