Kreativ Bloggers

As you may have seen from my previous post, I've been neglecting my blog slightly in favour of being all adventurous around North West Wales.  So it came as something of a surprise to discover that while I've been off galavanting, I was left two lovely comments by Lucy In The Sky and Cherry Heart informing me that they'd included eggbirddesigns in their Kreativ Blogger Award lists!

I had to do a bit of research, because I still feel pretty new to this blogging thing, and I wasn't entirely sure what a blogger award even was (and I'll be honest, this was the kind of kick up the bum I needed to go and find out! :P)

What I discovered was that at their heart, blog awards are a very kindly gesture; a firm handshake and a "jolly well done, old chap!".  I've decided that blog awards are the cyber equivalent of winning first place in the vegetable show at the village fĂȘte.  (For those of you wondering, it is one of my life's ambitions for a kindly old vicar to announce "excellent parsnips, dear!"  I'm about 83 in my head).

From what I've gathered from my sleuthing, I must now furnish you with 10 facts you weren't previously aware of.  Brace yourselves:

  1. At the age of 15, I got trapped inside a Dalek.  My cries of "help me!" came out in the Dalek voice, which made my brother laugh more than he's ever laughed before or since.
  2. I went to the same school and university as Danny Boyle (the director of Slumdog Millionaire and 28 days later).
  3. I must, under ALL circumstances put my right shoe on before my left.
  4. I have a degree in Linguistics, but sometimes wish I'd done Physics instead.
  5. I was going to tell you here about all the bands I would see if I could time travel.  The list included most of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
  6. My Portuguese is terrible.  I once asked for "a bedroom sausage" instead of "four sausage rolls".
  7. At just under 5 foot, I'm the shortest person in my family.
  8. My favourite artist is Alphonse Mucha.
  9. Soup and toast or rice pudding are my favourite comfort foods.
  10. Danse Serpentine is one of my favourite pieces of film.  It was hand coloured frame by frame and made in c.1896.


Phew!  That was harder than I thought it would be!  Hopefully I've given you a bit of insight into my mad little world! :P

Here is my list of nominations for the blogger award: 

Many apologies if I've left you off the list!  There are so many brilliant blogs out there, it was almost impossible to choose.

Until next time!

It's great to see you again I love that piece of film, could you make me a dress like that? It looks like a right old stress buster to have a good old swish about! Your Dalek Story made me laugh. Brothers eh, that's what they are there for! Tomorrow I will be posting about my fine pair of turnips, do pop over to my blog to admire them, prepare to be impressed! Shame there isn't a local show! Thanks for the pat on the back, back! :) Lucy x
