Leelou Blogs

Friday, March 23, 2012


Hi all,
Well, it's Friday! Martha is having a little nap, so I thought I would pop on here to thank three lovely ladies with fantastic blogs showing all kinds of crafty goodness, who gave me blog awards last week. I was meaning to do this earlier, but I have been madly tidying up as we have a man coming to value the house this morning as we want to do some renovations and the bank needs a valuation.
Thank you Susan, for this award:

For this one, I have to nominate 5 people with less than 200 followers. Now, many of my bloggy friends have over 200 followers, but I would like to award this to:
Thank you Colette, for this award:
There are a few conditions to accepting the award:-

  • To thank the person who gave it to you and include a link to their blog.
  • Select 15 blogs that you have either recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Tell them you have nominated them for the award.
  • Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Here are my 7 things. I apologise if I have already said them.
1 - I was born in Somerset and lived there for 18 years. I moved to Newcastle to do my PGCE in 1999 and have stayed up north ever since.
2 - I am a vegetarian, but don't mind buying and cooking meat for hubby and the girls, as long as I don't have to have it.
3 - I played the clarinet when I was younger. I got my Grade 8 exam, but haven't played for years. I'm not even sure where my clarinet is now.
4 - I spent a year in France as part of my degree and have loads of half read french novels in the house.
5 - I love Apple Mac computers. They are so much simpler than Microsoft PCs in my opinion. Also, they are very stylish.
6 - My favourite film when I was younger was The Lost Boys, and I still like going back to my youth and watching it now.
7 - I love musicals. I have seen Les Miserables at least 5 times, and have also seen The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Starlight Express, Jesus Christ Superstar and Cats to name but a few! I also perform in amateur musical productions.
I would like to give this to:
I know this is not 15, but I have brain ache and my fingers are hurting with all the typing. I may be back later with more nominations.

I could choose many more blogging friends, but these ladies always have wonderful things to say about my creations. Thank you!
I am so grateful to you all for thinking of me and I am sorry I was late in posting them. I have found it hard to pick people, as everyone I follow is fantastically talented. Usually I cop out, so thought I wouldn't today, but it has taken me so long!
I will be back with a card soon, I promise.



Thankyou Nikki for the fabulous award
Hugs Dianne xx :)
