In the past few weeks, I have been awarded a couple of blog awards. The first is by Sabine at Little Castle Designs. The second is an honest Scrap award from Alison at Amidesigns.
So, here goes with Sabine's tagging
8s about me (all of them, in no particular order):
8 Things I'm looking forward to:
1) Exhibiting at the Henley Arts Trail this weekend.
2) Seeing Eric Clapton in Concert next week. It was on my do before I die list :)
3) Catching up with the girls, hubbies and kids next weekend.
4) Moving South West in the next few years.
5) Visiting friends and family over the summer hols - must get that organised.
6) Taking up lampwork bead making - one day anyway.
7) Eating my own homegrown veg and fruit later this year.
8) Teaching a lovely lady how to make her own jewellery next week.

8 Things I did yesterday:
1) Made lunch for my parents and my inlaws
2) Bought a new kitchen clock and a paddling pool.
3) Hunted for some foldable chairs in the shed, but couldn't find them
4) Twittered
5) Read my very long blog list (two days away and lots of reading to do)
6) Bumped into my old lab tech and had a lovely catch up.
7) Uploaded pics onto flickr and facebook
8) Was tempted by lampwork beads by managed not to buy any - for now.

8 Things I wish I could do:
1) Make lampwork beads.
2) Sing - properly not just my warble.
3) Make jewellery full time.
4) Read people's minds.
5) Be more patient.
6) Be more organised and waste less time.
7) Sew properly using a sewing machine
8) Know the proper names for plants not just my names, and more about where they should be planted etc.

8 Shows I watch:
....hmmm I could fall down here too as I tend not to watch too much - lets see
1) The Mentalist
2) Heroes
3) Britan's got talent (well it is the weekend)
4) Kirstie's homemade home
5) QI
6) Read my blog list
7) Update my website
8) Make jewellery
Sorry about the last three, but there isn't enough else on TV that interests me.
And if you are not too bored of an all about me - here are my replies to Alisons tagging - I will try to get the logo uploaded later today.....don't hold your breath though.
There are a few requirements and they are as follows:-
I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
I must list 10 honest things about myself
I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links
I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.
So, here's my 10 honest things:
1.I remember really insignificant things - like what someone had to eat at a meal out 3 yrs ago.
2.I enjoy making my own bread, jam, cakes etc. I also enjoy gardening and would love to have a market garden.
3. I don't always find being a stay at home mum easy, but I think it is the best start to life my child can have.
4.I miss Cornwall, but don't think I will ever get back there - at least I can go on hols.
5.My to do list is HUGE and never seems to get any smaller
6.I never seem to enough time to do everything I want to do.
7.I am really sensative to Cranial Osteopathy, I find it uncomfortable and slightly painful, most people don't feel anything or just a warmth.
8.I have more than enough beads already, but can't resist buying more.
9. I don't like it when people are two faced. When it is ok for them to do/say something but it isn't for you to. I find it mentally exhausting.
10. I have a physics degree and am qualified to teach to A-level. I much prefer making beads
Depspite the rules stating I need to post these on, it look as if lots of peeps have already had them and if they haven't they will do soon :) I also don't really have the time to hunt for those who have/haven't been tagged - my to do list is currently huge. Check out my blog reading list on the right for people who I may of chosen. However, if you want to fill in your answers and join the fun please do - let us all know and we can pop by to read your answers.

So many lists! I'm like you - my to-do list never gets any shorter. . . if anything gets removed then something else fills the place . . .

Er, but I wouldn't worry too much about not being good at lampworking as your beads further down the page are fab!!
