Oh Fame at Last

The lovely Wendy/Savvymum has given me an award! Wendy blogs here about her special family, and she has been a great support to me.

So here are the Rules! I hate rules! But hey ho!

The “Rules”:
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award- Wendy you for the award xxx
2. Share 7 things about yourself

1. I always wanted to be a lawyer but got turned off when I was on work experience at the tender age of 15 at Wong, McDermott and White. It was not very LA Law

2. I first fell pregnant at 25 but didn't have a baby in my arms until I turned 36!

3. I moved to England 9 years ago, and I love it here, I prefer it to Australia

4. I love cricket! I've been to loads of live games, and adore it, and secretly hope Joseph becomes a cricketer.

5. I enjoy crafts, especially sewing and painting, and used to make loads of my own gifts. Then I had a baby.

6. I did a month's work as a missionary in Fiji when I was 20, working with street kids in Suva and long to go back.

7. I am known amongst my friends for my baking, especially cupcakes, and came second in a baking competition at work. The person who won really deserved it though, her cake was amazing!

3. Pass it along to blogs you’ve recently discovered and enjoy:

My first is The Mummy Life - varied and interesting, and lots of great pics of her gorgeous little man

My second is Northern Mum - as well as an interesting and thought provoking mum she is an encouraging mummy blogger who is always kind and supportive

My third is the very cool Mammy Woo - who is a very honest blogger, a bit like having a chat with a girlfriend after a few too many, well, Woo Woos!

And finally, mum to Esther and William a fellow premmie mum, she has twins, and her blog is an inspiration.

4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award
