An Award or Two

on February 23, 2013

I got an award! Or two …… I was halfway through writing this when I got another one. Honestly people, can’t you spread them out a little bit more? Aw, I love you all really 😀

Anyway, I have got the Beautiful Blogger award twice and the Shine On Award. I feel so special ….. 😀

I will do the Beautiful Blogger Award first, so thank-you to Elly and George for nominating me (look, I’m posting! :D)

Ooooh, I gaave myself two because I am special and this makes me doubly beautiful 😉

Anyway, this is what I have to do:

1.Display the Award Certificate on your website (tick tick)

2. Announce your  win with a post and link to whoever presented your award (tick … ish)

3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers

4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself

Right, on with the show!

Okay, 15 deserving bloggers …… hmmm ……..

I am now treaking through the blogging rainforest in search of rare and incredible blogs ….. and also following the trail of awards …….. it’s quite entertaining sometimes 😉 anyway, best David  Attenbrough impressions …..

Yes! Finally! 15 bloggers 😀

Now – 7 interesting things about me ….. hmmm

1) I read. A lot. That’s not really that interesting is it ………

2) Ummmm…….

3) My Umpa Lumpa died. It was sad.

4) The green magical snake and green non-magical snake are still alive though.

5) Whenever someone I haven’t heard of before likes or follows anything on my blog, I dance around going ‘New people! New people! New People!’

6) I’m supposed to be revising right now

7) I suffer from SM Syndrome.

Well, that’s it! I think I will dedicate a separate post to the Shine On Award …….. Anyway,



P.S. I have just finished watching Dead Poets Society for the first time and I literally cannot stop crying. It is an AMAZING film and I love it so much! I will share this clip that made me almost cry even before I watched the film! It’s the very last scene of the movie and if you’ve seen it, there will be crying. I think I cried for the last 40 minutes of the film – and that doesn’t usually happen! Anyway, here is the clip:

    • It’s an amazing film! I eventually resorrted to ordering it on amazon! Go on YouTube and search rip it out – dead poets society. It’s an AMAZING film! That clip is right at the beginning and is even better having watched the ‘O Captain, My Captain’ one 😀 One of the funny moments 😀
