I have been tagged by the lovely A Small Hand in Mine to receive the Kreativ Blogger award. Very pretty it is too - just the sort of thing a girl wants in her sidebar. The idea seems to be that you list seven things about yourself that you have not previously divulged on your blog, and that you then of course pass it on. So here goes....
1. I have a tattoo on my head. You can't see it because I have long hair and to be honest I forget it's there most of the time - that is until I go to a new hairdressers and see them do a complete double take. The reaction is always something along the lines of, 'Oh my god, you're the last person that I would have expected to have a tattoo on their head!' I'm never quite sure how to take that.
2. I'm quite handy. I can put up a mean shelf, and in fact I built a whole book case at the top of our stairs myself. I have a really impressive tool box full of my late grandfathers ancient old tools and I love a bit of flat pack.
3. I'm a typical Virgo which always strikes me as being rather ironic seeing as I don't believe that when you happen to have been born has any bearing whatsoever on your personality. But even I can't deny my own perfectionism and liking for things to be in order. My books are grouped into sections and the fiction section is in alphabetical order for christs sakes. Friends over the years have found this anally retentive aspect to my nature completely hilarious - even my own mother takes the piss - which is rich coming from her because she's exactly the same!
4. I like driving really fast. In another life I would have been a formula one driver. Lewis Hamilton would have been eating my dust.
5. I have absolutely no sense of direction and have even been known to get lost in peoples houses. Perhaps it's a spatial awareness thing because I once did one of those IQ tests - you know the ones with the little puzzles you have to solve - and my eventual score suggested that I was of subnormal intelligence.
6. I have recently been reunited with my best friend from when I was a teenager, through facebook of all things. Even though it is now many years later, we still share a real connection. We have met up a few times now and I'm absolutely thrilled to have her back in my life.
7. I'm scared of horses. They're far too big.
So with that it is now time for me to tag seven other bloggers whom I would like to get to know better. Would you like a Kreativ Blogger award?
