Love actually is all around...

...and what better way to spread that love than with an award?
Unfortunately, the break is still not over. But I'm getting closer and closer to ironing out all of the issues (one of them being figuring out how to print screen on this new-fangled piece of technology that is my brand new laptop), and should be up and running soon. A quick update though: I got a job! It's only a few days a week, but hey it's better than nothing, eh? So that will only slightly eat into my designated blogging time when I'm back to routine. But for now, it's time to spread that aforementioned L.O.V.E...

Some time ago, I received an award from the lovely LyddieGal over at Chic on the Cheap.
The rules...
1. Link to the person that gave you the award.
2. Pass the award on to however many bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
3. Contact the blogs and let them know they have won.
4. State seven things about yourself.

Gosh I don't even know that I could state 7 things, I'm really not that interesting.
1. I am listening to Playground Love, by Air (my favourite band) right now.
2. I'm obsessive about brushing my teeth before leaving the house and before going to bed.
3. My mother was studying naturopathy some years ago, and since then our entire stash of hair and beauty (as well as cleaning) products has been over-turned and we're pretty much all-natural in every area now. As annoying as it was, I think we've really benefited from the change, health-wise.
4. I have acting aspirations, and my ultimate director to work with would undoubtedly be David Lynch. If only I could have somehow been involved with his previous works, already...
5. I have been going to my orthodontist since I was a little baby. I don't know anyone who has had more dental work than I have (though I'm sure, somewhere in the world, there would be someone).
6. I'm not big on epic concerts, but I was devastated when the Spice Girls never made it to Australia for their reunion.
7. Almost everything in my possession at the moment is broken or destroyed in some way, including my shoes, my bag, several t-shirts and pairs of pants, my lamp, both bedroom cupboards, my gumboots, my favourite necklace and much more.

And recently I also received an award from the gorgeous Little Bear Stories.

And so I have decided to pass these awards (take your pick of which one you'd prefer, or accept both) onto...


And of course, thank you to everyone who comments, follows or even visits the robins you have no idea how much I appreciate your support. And I shall see you all soon when I have fully returned from my break.

Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon
Love Actually, 2003


Goodbye, for now!

Oh my goodness honey!! I was thinking about you today! I received an award from another blogger and I'm nominating you because you're awesome [oh God. do people still say that?] and wow. talk about synchronicity!

You of course deserve all the awards you get! Thank you soooo much for this!! I'm new so I'll take two!!! Kidding. maybe. :)

Congratulations on the job hon!

I figured you were a David Lynch fan... Sandy's quote and 'Wild at Heart' gave that away :)
I'm a Lynch fan too and nothing, nothing beats 'Twin Peaks' for me. Wrapped in plastic.

Regarding your #3... that happened to me too!

Good to 'see' you back even if it was fleeting... Looking forward to when you are back semi fulltime... x
