Stylish? Me?......

Bernie from One of a Kind has passed this fab blog award on to me.  Not sure there is anything about me that could be called stylish but thank you Bernie.  What I now have to do is to think of 8 things about me that you don't know already [hard one this] and to pass it on to 4 other blogger[even harder cos there are so many] so I will do my best...

  1. I have a small scar on my right cheek where I fell on a hook as a toddler...the hook was one a safety gate fitted on to keep me out of the kitchen [no health and safety around then obviously  :-) ]
  2. I have been a bridesmaid 3 times [for my brother, my sister and my cousin ] and still managed to be a bride. [3 times a bridesmaid never a bride!! ....another rule I've broken  :-)  ]
  3. When I got married I kept the same initials...different surname but same initial .....I was told "change of name and not of letter is a change for the worse and not for the better"!  [guess that's another saying I have broken cos my OH is the best thing that has ever happened to me]
  4. I am not superstitious....I walk under ladders ....maybe you can see why from above
  5. I went to a grammar school and have nine O levels and one A level....educated idiot me  :-)
  6. I met my OH on a blind date on Sunday 2 August 1981.  By 4th August we had decided to get married, we got engaged after 8 weeks and married after 8 1/2 months [and not a maternity dress in sight!] and here we are nearly 29 years later still happily married and as they say the rest is history.
  7. I was only 4 foot 4" when I started secondary school and was the smallest pupil in the school at the time....only ever reached the giddy height of 5 foot and am on the downhill road now  :-) ...they say 'small things come in little parcels' but so does poison....I will let you decide which I am.
  8. My Grandmother was 47 when she had my Dad and yet she lived to see him celebrate the birth of his first Grandson.  She was nearly 101 when she died and a day doesn't pass without us sharing her wealth of knowledge with others.  She was an amazing woman.
Now I have to pass this on to 4 others...I have looked through all the very many blogs I follow and I am really finding it impossible to choose so am going to have to pass on this one.  Please, if I follow your blog it is because you are stylish [yes, Twiglet that means you....can't get much more stylish than you!] so please pick up this award and let me know when you have written the 8 things I don't know about you [I have a feeling you might find it hard to write 8 things I don't know about you though Twiglet! ]  :-)

What a lovely tale of you and Mr W. Clearly you recognised a good 'un when you saw him!

Snap, my hubby was a blind date too, well half a blind date, he'd seen me but I'd not seen him. 23 years later he's still the best thing to happen to me too.

Just wanted to thank you, you made me smile this morning with your comment left on my blog. I can't believe I've changed your life, but I know what you mean about crafting every day becoming a 'good' life long habbit now.
love fi x
