First Awards

The lovely Hannah from Span's Stitchin' has given me my first awards...yay! Thanks! There are some rules (although according to Hannah they are not compulsory..) which are:

1) Put the award on your blog - will be there in a minute

2) Put a link on your blog of the blogger who gave you the award - done

3) Nominate 5 other bloggers - I nominate:

Kyoko from Cotton and Cloud - amazing knitting and tutorials.
Lupin from Bugs and Fishes - the first blog I read
Helen from Angharad - Lovely knitting and sewing
Two Hippos - I always get good tips on where to buy crafty things in London
Jo from Today we are - Great blog and always to the point

I use to lurk around blogland reading these blogs and it looked like fun so decided to join in....thanks for all the inspiration girls!

4) Leave a comment on their blog notifying them - will do

5) List 5 things that I'm addicted to so here goes: Hmmmm there is quite a few:
  • Blogging is one....it is very addictive
  • Knitting
  • Buying books and magazines - Amazon and books shops are very dangerous places....
  • Puddings and cakes - I always like to have something sweet after a meal
  • This is a recent craze but puzzle games....especially sudoko

Today is Chinese New Year Eve, so will be popping over to my Mums for Hotpot tonight. Yay...will post some photos if I get the chance. In the mean time the lovely Grace Lee has baked an amazing Chinese New Year cake... have a look on our blog.

Hi All,

Thanks for all your New Year wishes. It's pretty cool having two new years, a good excuse to postpone the diet and detox...Hee! Hee!

Happy New Year! Did I ever tell you about my little girl? They learned about Chinese New Year last year at nursery and she was in tears as she wanted so much to be Chinese! So we took her to the parade in London. This year her class teacher is Chinese, so she's come back even more excited about it - we celebrated with a Chinese meal at home.
Thanks very much for the award!

Happy New Year!

Chinese New year has been the topic of the week at my son's kindergarten. He's been pretending to be a dragon all week long...
