Stylish Blogger Award

                                               

I have been awarded a 'Stylish Blogger Award' by Tanya at http://www.cardswithadifference.blogspot.com/
I am very flattered, I have been blogging for less than 2 months and am still learning loads from other blogs I visit.

The rules of the award are:-

1.  That I should thank the person who gave me the award, which I have done.

2.  That I should share seven things with you about me that you didn't know.

Here goes:
a)  I am married with four adult children (age 29, 28, 26 and 23) a granddaughter too but readers know about her!
b)  In my 20s I quallified as a general nurse, midwife and health visitor
c)  In 1994 I graduated in Law from Cambridge university - one of my proudest achievements
d)  I worked as a solicitor for 8 years and am now legal director of a charity
e)  I have knitted, sewed and embroidered almost as long as I have been able to read (which I began age 4)
f)   I am a little over zealous about tidiness - I like my linen cupboard all folds to the front and have three very carefully ordered stashes, wool, fabric and haberdashery - I only stop short of producing a written catalogue
g)  I have a very naughty profligate shopping habit

3.  That I should also name another 15 blogs.

Here goes:-

Hi Catherine, thank you so much for thinking of me for the Stylish Blogger Award, but when I first started blogging I decided to forgo the awards and tagging, I did have a tag and award free button on my blog before but forgot to put it back on when I changed my url, hope you understand.

Hi Catherine, thank you for the award, you are so sweet. I know I did one of these (a few actually) on my daily blog, so I'll try to find one to link up to or post again (I really can't think of that many things about me, so I have to use the same answers!!)
