Beautiful Blogger Awards

April kindly nominated me to carry this post on - can i just emphasis again how much I love this girl's blog and as I'm a bit of a lazy blogger,  I'm flattered to be on her blogroll! :) 

Part 1 of the deal is I get to divulge 7 random facts about me:
1. I'm both fascinated and terrified by croc/alligators. This month I plan to get some alligator tail and cook it using one of my recipes from Jamie Olliver.
2. The only country I've visited thus far is Japan. While I would love to see the rest of the world, my ideal holiday right now is cruising... to nowhere in particular.
3. I am a youngest sibling (one older sister) thus am used to getting pushed around a a bit, but never getting blamed for anything, lol. 
4. I am a crazy cat lady, I have two but would have more if I could. I'd like dogs next (never had one before) and am worried I'll end up with a farm eventually! I want to get a pug and call it McBain. 
5. I love training shoulders and am getting quite strong. But when I first started training, I used ~5kg dumbells for pressings and side laterals etc and could not even do the movement for rear laterals with the smallest baby weights! 
6. I still eat ~ 1-1.5kg vegies a day (spread out over a lot of meals). I know I don't have to but I can't help it.
7. I am a closet popstar. I got singstar for Christmas to add to my collection of karaoke DVDs and CDs. I don't need alcohol to get up and sing either!

This is Cookie - she had four baby boys and we kept one of the gingers and named him Tiger.

Part 2 - I will nominate 7 more beautiful bloggers:
I nominate:

Don't feel as though you have to carry it on, but do know that you're beautiful! :O

Well girl, I just read your post and thought it was great to hear a little bit more about you.

Crocodile......don't know about that one. When we were up in Dawin a few years back, I saw it there on a restaurant menu, right beside 'camel hump' ewwwwww! I just couldn't bring myself to try it. Let us know how it goes.

Then I got to the end and saw your comment about other beautiful bloggers.........and I felt so honoured that you think my blog is worthy of that comment. I got the 'warm and fuzzies' and just wanted to reach through my computer and give your a great big hug of appreciation!

It is so warming to hear when you have touched somebody (even if it is through blogland) and in such a short time. Thanks again Steph, and I WILL be following up with a few odd things about myself for my next blog. Come to think of it...I was a little stuck for something to write! lol!
