I hope none of you ladies mind being nominated!

And now for 7 completely random facts about me....

1.     I pretty much always end up wearing odd socks.  It's not planned, it's not a statement; it's simply a reflection of my (lack of) organisation skills!

2.     I beat cancer in 2001.  Or rather the amazingly skilled surgeon and fantastic medical team that looked after me did, and for that I will be eternally grateful.  My heart goes out to everyone whose lives are affected by this cruel disease.

3.     I wish I could speak another language and I'm in awe of those people who can.

4.     I don't like peace and quiet, it unnerves me. Whenever I'm alone I'll have music or the tv keeping me company.

5.     I've graduated twice - in 1999 and 2009.

6.     I've been vegetarian for the last 5 years, and I love cooking.

7.     I'm a wellies, mud and music kinda girl - I'm in my element slap bang in the middle of a festival!


  1. Congrats and thank you! I wear mismatched socks, too, and I don't care!! :-) appreciate your shout out.

    1. That makes me feel better kris, we should wear odd socks with pride! x

  2. Congratulations on your award, and many thanks for nominating me for Versatile Blogger :)

    I would love to be able to speak another language too - I studied French and Italian to GCSE level at school, but I don't think I have the brain for languages!

    Have a lovely Wednesday x x

    1. It would be amazing right! i did my german GCSE but I can't really remember anything.

  3. Odd socks hehe love it! And so glad you made a recovery from cancer must of been an awful time in your life x

  4. Thank you for nominating me for the award!

  5. I love you Fi :-) I want to do this but i don't know enough people hahaha! x
