Versatile Blogger award

Before I went away, Lynda from Hookin' with LaaLaa kindly gave me this award. I now have to list 7 interesting things about myself! Eekkk, here goes......

1: This was my first teddy. My mum and dad bought him for my first Christmas, 1968. I loved soft toys, and when I was older I used to have a rota of which toys were in bed with me. Although I now make bears, I don't really collect them, I just like to create them.

2: The best day of my life was when I passed my driving test. I was on cloud nine all day. Shhhh....don't tell hubby or daughter, weddings and births usually figure as the best days!

3: I'm a ginger! Yep, its official, once a ginger kid, always a ginger kid. OK its a lot lighter now, bits of grey,  hair dye to hide said grey, but I'm still a ginger LOL

4: I once went over a year without chocolate, just to see if I could. Its seems to have made me immune to its charms now and I hardly ever eat it.

5: Lynda has a nut allergy, mine is rabbits. I start sneezing, my eyes itch and my breathing is laboured. When doctors ask if you have any allergies.....its very tempting to say....yes, rabbits! I just say no and hope never to be surrounded by an irate warren of rabbits.

6: I'm very shortsighted, -9.5 and -10. I wear contacts and have done for years. For my driving test I memorised two number plates nearby before the test, OK I can see but just in case.....

7: I used to be 5 stone heavier. All the chocolate I ate? Nah, just a greedy person. I've kept a healthy weight now for over 11 years but never lose sight that the fat me could resurface at any time.

There you have it, 7 interesting facts LOL I'm supposed to link to 5 others but I always find this bit so hard. So if Anyone would like to just join in, I'd love to read your interesting facts. There is one lady I'd like to nominate though, because I'd just love to see what she comes up with, its Annie at The Felt Fairy, go Annie! Check her out.
