Stylish Blogger Award!

I am very proud to have been awarded this award by the lovely blog Creating Trouble.
Now, being a little cynical, although flattered to have been awarded it I almost didn't respond to it as it feels a little too much like hard work for my liking.

Then I thought about how I felt when I received the 'nomination' for a Stylish Blogger Award!! Really chuffed! I'd clicked on the links to some of the other blogs listed, as well as the one that nominated me. I found some really interesting blogs that I'm now following that I definitely wouldn't have just stumbled across! So I decided to join in!

There are 4 things that you have to do. They are as follows...

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award. (See above for Creating Trouble!). Tick!

2. Share 7 things about yourself. mmmm here goes!

I spent 20 years working in a dark room.... no, not what you are thinking!
I was an Air Traffic Controller!

I live 2 minutes from the beach and like to go there everyday. No matter how you are feeling your spirits are lifted.

I have a slight addiction to red wine and then when that runs out, white!

I'm have recently become a Flylady and my house is super organised and clean!

I'm trying really hard to make my business pull in a wage so I don't have to get a "proper" job when my youngest starts school in September!

I get paid a military pension every week - winner!

I have 3 beautiful children, 2 boys and
a girl that dresses like a boy and thinks she is Buzz Lightyear! Tick!

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
