Stylish Blogger Award

Hello again! I thought I'd do a Saturday post.  Just for a change, ya know?

I was very kindly tagged for the Stylish Blogger Award by Sophie at Country Girl Does Norfolk and Sophia at Sophia's Style .  Thanks so much ladies!

The rules for the award are:
1)  Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2)  Share 7 things about yourself.
3)  Award 10 recently discovered great bloggers.
4)  Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

OK, lately you have been bombarded with stuff about me so I'll do my best to come up with more!!
  1. I have never broken any bones... I think.  Actually one time I may have broke my ribs after a drunken fall (the same fall that required me to get 7 stitches in my knee) but the nurse in A&E said they can't do anything for broken ribs anyway and so didn't even X-Ray me.  Hmph.
  2. I have really, really vivid, memorable dreams.  Most days I will be telling someone "Guess what I dreamt last night...".  They are always a bit random and weird, but when they're scary I usually wake up to find myself crying or trying to scream.  I once dreamt that I met Arthur Miller.  The next day I saw on the news that he had died.  At the time when I would have been asleep. Weird! Coincidence?  I like to think not...
  3. I can't play any instruments *sad face*  When I was in P7 (last year of primary school) our class had to learn how to play the tin whistle, hardly the coolest instrument in the world is it? I never kept it up.  Same goes for being forced to play the recorder in Year 8 Music class. Bor-ing.
  4. I cannot sing to save my life.  Literally, if I had a gun to my head and had an hour to practice hitting the right note, I would fail miserably and be killed due to my complete lack of musical ability.  I'm tuneless; people laugh.  Children cry.  My cat leaves the room.  Shame, as I love singing.
  5. I am identical to my dad.  I-dent-ical.  Do you know how it feels to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and see a 50 year old man looking back at you?  No?  Lucky you!
  6. I have only had 2 fillings in my life.  I was 16 when I got the first.  When the dentist said that I needed a filling, so did I want to get it there and then, I said ok as I had no idea what to expect!  Well, I got a shock.  That needle they inject your gums with scares the bejesus out of me.  I almost cried with shock.  So the next time I was told I needed a filling, about 2 years later, I said "Fine, but can you do it without using the needle?"  My dentist was very suprised and said that she could if I really wanted.  So she did my filling without freezing my mouth.  No dribbling like a lunatic and talking like a moron afterwards.  Easy peasy.... *whimper*
  7. I can't wait until I pass my bloody driving test.  Some days I have no lift home and I hate getting the bus with all the eejits from the local nuthouse college.  I am a professional, you know...
Right so that's enough from me!  I tag:

No.7 - I'm soooo with you. And I can drive. I'm just saving for a flat/house so a car is an unnecessary extravagance considering the bus journey to work is 10 mins.

No.4 - ditto!!

And I can't believe you killed Arthur Miller! ^_-

Have fun at the pub!

Please vote for me to win Westfield's blogger style competition!

Love these posts. They are always so interesting to read. The dreams one made me laugh but only because I had just read your twitter comment this morning ;)
Thanks for the tag. Am away at the moment but will do that once I'm home. x
