First blogger award for Alice Jean's !!

To my total delight, I received this 'Beautiful Blogger' award from the lovely Ruth at 'Celebrate Friendship' and 'Daily Devine' - thankyou Ruth for your beautiful and most flattering award.

I'm supposed to tell you seven things about me and share this award to seven other bloggers (who then do the same for other bloggers if they wish).

So, here goes - Seven Things about me:

1. I was OBSSESSED with Anne of Green Gables as a teenager

2. My husband was my very first boyfriend - we met when I was 23.

3. I was a tall, gangly, ugly duckling as a child - which explains why I never had a boyfriend before my honey! However, I think it was the best thing in the world for me - gave me independance, individuality, and a focus on life and living instead of 'boys'!!

4. I always wanted to be an astronaught.....until I found out that you need to be quite brilliant at physics and maths !

5. I am living my dream of being a stay at home, 1950's style Mum !

6. I think my kids watch far too much television and am attempting to curb that !

7. Am making a dark green with aqua, gold and red spotted wiggle dress at the moment !

(I use exclamations alot dont I !!)
