Sunshine award

Carissa over at Kissed A Frog Blog has given me the Sunshine Award. Yay, thank you! I'm not feeling very sunshiney today - it is a public holiday (thanks, Queen Elizabeth) but the weather is yuck. Anyway...
The rules to accept the award are: thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Tell us something about yourself. Nominate 10 other bloggers for the award.

Now, I don't think I have 10 other bloggers who haven't received the award already, so instead I might give you 10 things about myself. Um...
  1. I have never had any fillings in my teeth. They are a little crooked, but structurally sound;
  2. I moved overseas on my own three and a half years ago, and cried a little bit while I was on the aeroplane because I wondered what on earth I was thinking;
  3. I am the maid of honour for two upcoming weddings, and would now consider being a 'regular bridesmaid' to be a demotion, hahahahaha!;
  4. While I am pleased to be maid(s) of honour, I am secretly a little bit sad that it means I can't choose my own dresses. I love clothes;
  5. I worry that Chris will get emphysema or lung cancer from smoking, and I hate that he does it anyway;
  6. One of my favourite meals when I am just cooking for me, is to steam up a bunch of random vegetables and smother them in a cheesy bechamel sauce;
  7. I look at the other clothes that women sew, and wonder why I am nowhere near as good at it;
  8. I hate that Grave's Disease and it's treatments have made me fat, and I also hate telling people that because I know they think it's an excuse ("oh, have you tried eating less? Going to the gym?" "Of course I have, you rude person, it's a DISEASE. Gym doesn't cure that.");
  9. I wish I had more time for hobbies. Maybe a four-day-a-week job? Too bad nobody employs engineers part-time, huh;
  10. I didn't even know what a blog was until about 18 months ago!
I won't insist that any of you copy this meme, but feel free to let me know in the comments if you choose to!


  1. Hi,

    I enjoy reading your blog!

    just wanted to comment on one of your points - number 9, I have not thought of you as FAT neither would I consider you so - I am amazed that people think that it is ok to comment on ones appearance in such a negative way.

    I also think the same as you about my sewing skills. I have a new overlocker and it is getting the better of me I am "scared" of it - others use theirs like a pro (what is wrong with me?)

  2. Thanks so much for commenting!

    Well, I appreciate that you don't think of me as fat. This is the heaviest I've ever been, and it's 20kg more than I weighed three years ago. But you're right - I can't understand what people get from being so rude, either.

    I haven't even approached an overlocker!! You're already a step ahead of me :-D

  3. You've never had any fillings wow! I thought I was good with 2 in 10 years. But good job!!

  4. Hahaha must have been those fluoride tablets when I was a kid!
