I've got an Award!!

Thank you to Pea Green Kitty at Memoirs of A Vintage Magpie for my very first award, I am thrilled to receive it

I now need to tell you 7 things about myself that you won't already know.
Now let me think..... (can you hear the cogs in my head whirring)

1) I have a strange obsession with the moon. - not sure why it just fascinates me. I once crashed my car because I was staring at a full moon (it looked stunning as it had a real red glow around it) . I drove straight into another car and my little Fiat uno needed a whole new bonnet. I didn't mention the Moon on the insurance claim form though!

2)If I was going to listen to any piece of music whilst doing a manic house cleaning session then it would be the Bat out of Hell album by Meatloaf played at full volume. There is something about that album that compliments housework so well!
3)I used to be obsessed with Paddington Bear when I was a child. He is still one of my all time favourite bears. I will add a picture of my favourite furry friend. I have an original Gabrielle bear who lives on Daisy's bookshelf.

4)I am the second youngest of four and have two older sisters and a younger brother. I was born on my Dads birthday in November 1968 and I am Scorpio birth sign. My dad said I was the best birthday present anyone could wish for - I think he meant it!

5)Whilst on holiday in Florida in 1993, I got up at 4.30 am to drive to Kennedy Space Centre to see a launch of the space shuttle Discovery. It was very exciting and the sonic boom was very loud. I have been back visit Kennedy Space Centre three times since then and love it every time. I'm a bit of an anorak at heart I think.

6)My all time favourite place to visit in the UK is Corfe Castle in Dorset. There is something about the ruins that fascinate me. I did a project on Corfe Castle when I was in Primary school, I think that's where my fascination stems from.

7)My favourite food is Tai green curry. The only food that I really really dislike is liquorice or anything flavoured with aniseed.

Now to pass the award on to 7 bloggers.

Here goes

I love reading all the blogs I follow and get so much enjoyment from reading little snippets of peoples everyday lives.
Till Next time, Alison x


  1. Thank you, that's really kind of you, I do appreciate it, I'm so snowed under right now that I may not manage to do the proper things with it for ages, but I have enjoyed reading your 7 things. I like Genesis with my housework, very loud, and we stay near Corfe Castle every year and drive past it but have never visited properly! xx

  2. Congratulations on the award, well deserved! Wow Alison!! I didn't expect that!! Thank you so much!! I loved your comment about the moon!! Have you been to the Canary islands?? The moon there is just HUGE!! You'd clearly love that!! I would get up early to see space shuttle launch, so I don't think you are crazy!!
    Thank you again!!

  3. That was a lovely swap parcel you sent to Happi-ness.
    I have a Paddington bear just like the one in the picture, I had him when I was five..x
