7 things ...

you may or may not know about me.

I yesterday received my first blog award! Yay!

I got this Sunshine Award from my friend LJ over at With My Own Two Hands. We've known each other through cyberspace for a few years and both of us are new to blogging so it's been great to share this journey with her too!

As part of this award I need to share seven things that you may not know about me and then pass on the award to seven more wonderful blogs. I'll do my best!

1. I get pangs of jealousy when I watch Playschool, a Playschool presenter is my never-going-to-happen fantasy job!

2. I've only ever lived in three cities/towns. Brisbane, Cairns and now in Maryborough. What can I say? I'm a homebody!

3. One of the things that makes me a terrific mum is the fact that I touch bananas for my boys. I absolutely cannot stand them, even the smell is horrible! But they love them ... ick.

4. I love history and some days feel like I've been born into the wrong time period.

5. I'm desperate to get my piano from my parents once we're settled in the new house. I'm not very good, but so wanting to learn again.

6. I'm very good at procrastinating. The proof of this is that I'm on the computer now instead of packing!

7. After years and years of driving my mum crazy by not making my bed, the day doesn't feel quite right now unless the bed is made! Poor mum, she was right all along!

So now to pass this on to seven other wonderful blogs:

Saminda at Ferns by the Fireside
Anna at dillpickle unfinished
Emma at Life as we Know It
Amy at Our Piece of Country Paradise
Melissa at Notes on an Aria
Val at Collecting the Moments
Amy at Suburban Homemade

I hope you get a chance to visit these great women bloggers, they are all lovely reading!


  1. Ha ha - I had a good chuckle at the play school thing!!!

    Thanks for the kind words....one day now we will all catch up!

    You know the thing I love about these awards - you discover some other wonderful blogs!!

  2. ME TOO - I want to be on Playschool!! :D
    Thank you for the award my friend, I will endeavour to do a post about my 7 things soon! xx

  3. Oh Min, I'm sorry but I couldn't be on Playschool with you! Kids think I can sing so singing next to you would give my game away! ;) We could alternate the days!

  4. Always fun to find out more about a blogger, particularly one I've only just met. Yay. Perhaps I should get into the bed-making thing... although the boys tend to love tearing the sheets off our bed as a little joke at the moment. Grrr.

  5. Gina I'm only very new to bed-making, it's only been the past 6 months or so. Making each bed in our house does involve the boys climbing up and having a 'hide' in the sheets. Lots of fun!!!

  6. Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!! That's what i did when i read the playschool bit - that is exactly me!!! lol and I would have been so good at it too!
    Homebody too! Only ever lived in one state - 3 places.
    Well I like banana's sooo...
    I really like history too :-)
    We have a piano (birthday pressy this year!!) and I so badly want to play more than a one handed twinkle twinkle but lessons for others at present are more important, very glad we are able to give that :-)
    LOL my laundry is full of clothes at the moment, dishes on bench etc....
    Hmmm I'll have to try master the making the bed part :-) It is nice have it looking respectable if somebody just happens to drop by (instead of having to closet he door..) and to be able to get into a freshly made bed for a night.
    I posted about you on my blog - hope okay?? Linked back to you :-)

  7. Not a problem, great blog! Thanks for the lovely words about our lovely new home. I was having trouble commenting on your post though. I'll have to try again later! Vic xx
