I have such lovely blogger friends...

... because I have been awarded not one, not two, but three awards! (The rest of this post might get confusing.)


Firstly I was awarded the Liebster Award by Joanne @ A Certain Book. I've already explained to Joanne that I've recently receieved this award, so I'm not going to pass it on, because I passed it on last time. The award is a lovely idea in that you pass it to people who have less than 200 followers. I found this difficult, because there aren't very many blogs that I follow which have less than 200 - they're all just too darn successful! I hope you don't mind Joanne, but I really appreciate it.



Rachel Mary Bean @ Writing on the Wall and Michelle Gregory @ beautiful chaos both awarded me these two lovely awards. Because they both came together, I'm going to pass them on together, as I don't know whether they have different criteria. All I know is that both Rachel and Mary shared ten random things about themselves, and there doesn't seem to be a limit on the number of followers like the Liebster, so I've got a lot more choice.


10 Random Facts About Me (which I may have shared before)!

1) I'm going to be a bridesmaid for my sister in June - technically I'm the Maid of Honour, but I prefer the term bridesmaid.


2) I can't ride a bike.

3) I'm not much better at swimming.

4) I own a pair of boots and a skirt that are almost twenty years old, and I still wear them regularly because they are both in good working order and reasonably - surprisingly - fashionable most of the time.

5) My mum, who hated the fact she didn't have a middle name, failed to give me one.

6) I am tone deaf.

7) I love music.

8) My hubby is a musician. (You may notice those last three could have been one, but I'm struggling to find ten facts. I'm not altogether sure I'm that interesting!)

9) My living room is bright orange, my dining room is bright yellow, my kitchen is bright green.

10) I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who. The Doctor I grew up with was Peter Davison, who is almost always forgotten in TV documentaries about the series. He was the guy who wore cricket whites.

Phew! I'm done. And now, here are my nominations. I'm not sure how many I'm allowed to choose, so I'll pick a few at random. As always with these awards, I wish I could nominate all of you, but it gets really tiring on my eyes - I've decided to choose people I haven't awarded in the past! Yeah, okay... I know that's a really poor excuse to not have everyone on the list!

  2. my last house had all white walls because, despite living there for 19 years, we never got around to painting. we finally painted it when we had to sell it. i'll be sure to put color in my new house.

  3. If you're tone deaf but love music, I assume you don't sing in public? I sure don't!
    Congratulations on the awards!

    1. Nope - I never sing in public. I've been known to mime at carol services! I hit a note so rarely, my hubby points them out to me - and I'm ALWAYS chuffed!

  5. Hi, Annalisa
    No, I don't mind you not passing on the award. I had to break the rule slightly, too. I would like to say though, that those who don't yet have 200 followers are pretty successful too! :))

    Oh, that's so nice to get all those awards, and it's lovely to get to know you.

    1. I felt overwhelmed by them all - but very grateful. It's so nice to know people enjoy my random ramblings! It's almost like I know what I'm doing :-)

  6. Congratulations! Well deserved. Those are interesting 10 facts. I wish I was brave enough to brighten up the house, but we're still stuck in the beige phase :)

    1. My mum lives in beige, so I have a childhood aversion.

  7. Congrats on all the awards Annalisa. All very well deserved. :) And thank you for giving awards to me.

    I like that you used color in your house. I love bright colors.

  8. I'm a massive Doctor Who fan. I remember Peter Davidson. My favourite always tends to be the current one. I didn't think anyone could replace David Tennant, but I adore Matt Smith. I'm obviously fickle.

    Congratulations on the awards. :)

    1. I've loved all the new version Doctors. And like you, just when I thought DT couldn't be topped, Matt Smith popped up and - wow! - he is so fantastic.

  10. Congratulations on your awards Annalisa, I'd love to see your house! I love music too (surprised, right? :-)) It's a source of great sadness to me that I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

    1. Yes, it is a sadness, and an envy, and an embarassment especially when singing 'Happy Birthday' and STILL not getting it right!

  11. Hi Annalisa! Thank you so much for thinking of me with the awards, I really appreciate that!! I enjoyed reading your things, too, especially the tone deaf part as I am also tone deaf, but I LOVE music. I also can't swim and am can't ride a bike much better. :D

    Congratulations on your awards, and thanks again for thinking of me!

    1. You're welcome Julie. I grew up surrounded by friends who could sing - it's great to discover I'm not the only tone-deaf person around.

  12. Yes, another Whovian! And good for you for keeping those clothes. I like to wear things for years too.
