Stylish Blogger Award

Wow, I’ve only been blogging  for a month and the lovely Becky at has awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank you so much Becky, I feel quite honoured.

I was a bit unsure of how this worked but having mooched around at other winners sites it’s straightforward and a great way for bloggers to help each other out with a little promotion .  It’s also a lovely way to while away a few spare minutes discovering and reading some lovely blogs so please take a few minutes to check out my list of award winners below.
So here’s how it works....
Step 1 – Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award so please go and visit Becky’s blog listed above – it really is a lovely read
Step 2 - Share 7 random things about yourself
Step 3 – Award 15 recently discovered bloggers with this award
Step 4 – Contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won the award
So here goes – 7 random facts about me

I’m a bit of a whirlwind – I can’t sit still for 5 minutes and am always writing list after list to help me remember all the things I have on the go at any one time – and I still have a brain like a sieve!  My mum says I have lists for my lists and she could be right
I don’t watch soaps – just never seem to have the time although I am a closet Archers fan as I can listen to that as I sort and count beads.  SSSHHH...  just don’t tell anyone.

I’m a homebird.   I love travel and have been to some wonderful places around the world but home will always be where my chap Mr Crook and lovely friends and family are in Sunny Nuneaton.  I just can’t get through a day without chatting and gossiping to at least one of them.

I LOVE Cadbury’s Cream Eggs.  I do sometimes wonder how many I could eat in one sitting but daren’t try it as I’m not 100% sure i’d ever be able to stop -  I just can’t get enough of them

I’m terrified of spiders.  I have been known to sleep on the sofa for 2 nights after a particularly vile specimen was lost in my bedroom during a not so careful removal operation by my dad.

Mr Crook and I have two chickens, Bluebell and Tallulah who provide us with lots of entertainment and lay us lovely big eggs for our weekend breakfasts together.

One day I am determined to own a VW Camper van – it might take a while (and quite a few more bead sales) but I am determined one day Mr Crook and I will rock up to our fave campsite down in Devon with our very own Camper

Well that’s all about me, now for the fabulous blogs I’d like to award....
