I've been given an award!!

I really can't believe that I just typed that title but it's true, the lovely Em has given me an award. I really don't know what to say. Thank-you Em. Apparently I have to tell you five things about myself that you don't know,well here goes,

1. I don't like spiders, I mean I really don't like spiders.

2. I used to have a West Highland Terrier called Hamish. He died 2 years ago and I still really miss him.

3. I have an A level in Archaeology.

4. I love Philip Pullmans' trilogy, His Dark Materials.

5. I'm hopeless at knitting but I am hoping to get better.

I now have to pass this award on to three fellow bloggers, so here goes,

Em at Mousy Brown's House

Dawn at Rattling On

Cheryl at Time to Craft

I enjoy reading all of these and I'm sure you would too, if you don't already.

On a completely different note I have been doing some crochet, not the granny squares but a shawl.
It is to wear to third born child's birthday barbecue which is being held at her boyfriends' house tomorrow.
I'm hoping it will be warm enough and that I won't need a mac and wellies instead!

Hope you all have a good weekend,

Sue xx

P.S. Thank you for all the lovely comments about my eldest on the last post.


  1. You're most welcome about the awatd!
    I love your blog and it always cheers me up when I see you've updated it.
    Now...I looooove that crocheted you have the pattern or could you tell me where I could get it??
    I'd decided to save my beautiful Italian aran wool for a shawl and this looks perfect.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  2. Well done on the award! The shawl looks gorgeous - my crochet skills need some serious work - but I've been knitting for so long I could probably do it standing on my head (although I would need a crane to turn me upside down!!)

  3. ooh that crochet looks lovely x

    the rose you asked about is madame alfred carriere.

  4. Hi. I just found your blog on lovely Em's. I'm loving your blog. Lynda xx

  5. I feel totally honoured that you are passing the award on to me. Thank you. I love "His Dark Materials" too and I wish I had gone to a college that offered Archaeology as an A Level.

    Love the shawl.I hope you enjoyed the b-b-q.

  6. congratulations on the award and well done with the shawl. Lovely.

  7. Well done on the award front. I was due to do an A level in Archaeology but they cancelled the course as I was the only one who wanted to do it. I was very upset! I love the shawl. I'm a real shawl lover and have a heap of them queued on Ravelry yet I don't actually wear them!

  8. Thank you for the award. I love finding new blogs this way.

  9. Thank you Sue - sorry it has taken so long for me to pop in and discover it - I am afraid keeping up with all my favourite blogs is something that has slipped in the chaotic hours (and lots of sleeping!) that make up these summer months! I really appreciate you listing me and it's lovely to learn more about you! :D
