Sunshine Blog Award

Oooh I'm sooooooo excited, the lovely, lovely Lynne from Textile Treasury has nominated me for the Sunshine Blog Award.  This is my first award and from what I understand I have to tell you a few little things about me and then pass this award on to 5 lovely, sunshiney blogs.

So here goes:

I'm a qualified Nursery Nurse but now I am a stay-at-home mummy which I absolutely love!

I was never into crafts or cookery when I was younger but since having children and being at home a lot I now LoVe it.  I have only just recently learnt to crochet and I am about to tackle some sewing (but sewing machines and I don't tend to get along - hence me buying a mini machine to practise on!)

My favourite colour is green and I love to mix it with pinks and florals.

My favourite flowers are Lily of the Valley.

I love to read but having two wee ones doesn't give me much opportunity to indulge in novels to often.

My all time favourite television show is The Darling Buds of May.  I would love to live on that Kentish farm, wear floral pinnies, keep chickens and bake all day! Perfick!

I love, love love tea! I am on the hunt for a lovely teaset at the moment!

And I turn 30 at the end of the year!

Phew! I think that covers quite a few things.  There are so many beautiful blogs out there, I would love to nominate you all but I'm only allowed 5...........................
