How exciting, I've been awarded a blog award from the fab Jools of whose blogs I always look forward to reading.

"I love reading your blog and I think you deserve this, so I'm awarding you with the Versatile Blogger Award.

I'm also passing the rules for accepting this award:

* Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their site in your original post.
* Tell us seven things about yourself.
* Pass along the award to five newly discovered bloggers.
* Contact these bloggers and let them know they got this award.

It’s as simple as that. Hope you accept!"

OK, I'm going to come up with seven things about myself off the top of my head, here goes:

1) I love the music of Green Day, the Libertines, Carl Barat, the White Stripes (and Jack White's other bands), generally guitar based indie/punky stuffs with a bit of blues thrown in  Soledad Brothers style...
2) I have two gerbils called Milky Joe and Danger. I previously had two called Leo and Squizzle.
3) I like impressionist art - Monet and Renoir in particular and also loved the Waterhouse exhibition I went to at the Royal Academy last year.
4) I like chocolate, biscuits and tea with one sugar.
5) I have a growing collection of bears and sock monkeys & various monsters.
6) My favourite books are The Host by Stephenie Meyer (I also love the Twilight saga!), Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier, books by Garth Nix (pretty much all of them), His Dark Materials (Northern Lights etc) by Philip Pullman, Harry Potter...(no I'm not a teenager!) and I'm currently working my way through Asimov's Foundation saga.
7) I love Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars films - all of them!

OK, now I have to pass the award on to 5 other bloggers I've recently discovered. To be honest, Jools would have been on the list but she's obviously already got it, so here's some more I've been reading lately.

So that's a bit more about me, wasn't too random but it's getting late...and dark, I'd better put the light on because I can hardly see the keyboard....
Back soon,


  1. Ooh, thank you! I'm such a muppet, I only just found your comment on my blog. I will post about it properly as soon as I have a minute!
