I have been nominated for this:


                                             

by Barbara at: busybusybeejay.blogspot.co.uk

The award is for a favourite blog with 200 followers, or less.   There are some rules to follow:-

1 Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves
2 Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the awards to.
3 Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them to your post. I have seen varying numbers here from 3 up to 11 so I will nominated as many as I can but can't promise the full 11
4 Go back to their page and tell them about the award
5 No tag backs



So 11 random facts about me:

1. I love my dog - but you all knew that or why else would I have been getting up at 2am for the last 18 months to give him his meds?

2. My life is about to become a whole lot more complicated if my autistic sister comes to live with me but it is a challenge I am happy to take on.

3. My other half is not only my best friend but is also as crazy as I am and I love him to bits!

4. My car looks like a roller skate and drives like a go cart and it is the most fun you can have on the road legally!

5. I have met some fantastic ladies through a shared adversity and we have stayed bloggy friends for almost 5 years - you are pretty amazing people and you know who you are.

6. I really really want to live by the sea but dreams of this are put on hold for a while at the very least.

7. I have a growing collection of hand made project bags and I have each and every one filled with a project.

8. Last year was my 40th birthday and life did indeed change dramatically for me but not in any of the ways I had thought it might!

9. When I went to bed last week I saw a pair of owls in the trees on the green outside my home.

10. It is a pretty quiet and lonely place that is 2am but I have seen some amazing things: a barn owl sat on my washing line, a hedgehog that visits me quite often and a fire engine putting out a fire in the house behind ours.
