I've been given this award by the very talented Helen, I'm thrilled to little mint balls, don't you thinks it's wonderful when blogging friends think of you?
Thanks Helen, I'm honoured. Pop over here to look at her awesome work.
The rules are that I have to tell you some unusual things about myself and then pass it on to eight other people.
Well haven't much of interest to pass on about myself, but here goes...
I once had dinner with Mike Jagger and Brian Jones (deceased) of the Rolling Stones, yes, that's true.
Went to see the Beatles at Sheffield City Hall, and in those days you could sit on the stage, at the back, with the artists. Well can you guess what happened when they came on stage, yes, I ran straight up to Paul McCartney and put my arms around him and wasn't going to let go. The security men got me off eventually, but they just sent me back to my seat, how cool is that, eh.
I used, emphasise the word 'used' to be very good at sports. Represented the school at sprinting, played squash, badminton, did trampolining and was very good at table tennis. Now those of you who know me now will be saying 'never, don't believe that', but it's true. Now all I'm good for is being a couch potato.
4 years ago, when I was many stones lighter, signed up to trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, did all the training all the fund raising, in fact raised over £7,000 and then the week before we were due to go, the Cancer Research UK doctor phoned me and said I couldn't go because I'd got asthma and they wouldn't risk taking me because of the altitude. Why he couldn't have told me that before I did all the training I'll never know.
Right that's enough about me, now to the other bloggers and in no particular order they are...
Hope you're all having a good weekend, snowing in North Sheffield.
