This will (should) be me today, as I haven't done a good house clean in over a week and the kitchen is a mess this morning! Anyway, enough about my boring day ahead....

I've been lucky enough to receive two awards!!!

Anna at Cornflake aka Bank on Good Style awarded me the Your Blog is Over the Top award

And I also received the Versatile Blogger award from Sarah B at Molly's Maison

Thank you lovely ladies, you are both too kind. Go check out Anna & Sarah's blogs as they are both such fun, talented and creative girls and I read their blogs daily.

The rules of the Versatile Blogger award are to list 7 things about yourself so here goes...
1. My middle name is Elizabeth (my wonderful Mum's name).

2. As you can probably tell if you've been reading my blog for more than a week, I get lots of ideas and projects that I come up with and plan in my head and then never start, get started but not finish, take forever to finish. I think this problem could be solved if I was Martha Stewart and could delegate to my crafty helpers.
3. I love chocolate but tried the white chocolate Tim Tams last night and was disappointed. (Tim Tams for any overseas readers, is the most delicious chocolate biscuit on earth).

4. My favourite verse in the Bible which I always need to remind myself of when I get stressed is: Philippians 4:6-7 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.'

5. Two cities on my 'to travel list' are Prague & Tokyo

6. I sleep with multiple blankets, the heater right next to my side of the bed and my electric blanket on. Do you think it's bad for you to over heat yourself? Glen thinks it must be and shakes his head at me when I lean over and turn on my electric blanket and heater every night.

7. If I won the lottery (not that I ever enter) my biggest indulgence would be to have fresh flowers delivered every week of the year for the rest of my life, so that every room in the house had beautiful blooms in it! wouldn't that be lovely?

Now I'd like to pass on the Versatile Blogger to these lovely ladies:

Natalie at Tiny & Little
Vari at Buttercup Ink
Edwina at The Weekend Island
BubBles at Champagne and Bubbles
Ann at My Villa Life

Have a great day everyone, think of me while I clean :(


  1. Why, thank you for thinking of me! I'll need to put my thinking cap on for 7 things to write about. I loved your list, oh to have Martha Stewart's crafty team at my disposal for that growing list of projects here too. - Natalie x

  2. congrats Janette your 7 lists as always but i really love that idea about having flowers sent to your home every week if you won the lottery ,i love fresh flowers too in my home but i don't do it very often because i'm lazy to go to the florist:) have a great day its sounds like where doing the same thing today (cleaning) and bit of blogging :) xx

  3. Congratulations on your awards Janette. I can completely understand why you got them...your blog is a joy to visit. I was out for dinner with friends last night and we were discussing the merits of electric seems the jury is still out! But not much better than jumping into a warm cosy bed that 's for sure. Enjoy the cleaning!

  4. Thanks for the tag and a great list you've put forward... I am a hopeless tag/award passer -onner (that made more sense in my head than written) I'm afraid, but I thank you for thinking of me nonetheless...

  5. Congrats Janette!! Very deserving!

    If you want the jpeg of the award it's in my awards page at the top of my blog below the header.

    Hope you're having a great day, sunshine at last! xx

  6. Congratulations on your awards Janette! Your list of 7 things is great, I would have fresh flowers all the time too if I could! I like the white tim tams, we have them at work and they are great as a pick me up in the afternoon. xx

  7. Congratulations on your wonderful awards lovely lady!! I loved learning more about you through your list of 7 things! I am so much like you in that I have my electric blanket and heater on every night too:) I haven't tried the white Tim Tams yet!! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday ~ Tina xx

  8. Lovely post Janette and a big thank you for thinking of me... we are off on a little family break but I will give it some thought and post on it soon. And I am so with you on the Tim Tams! Ann x

  9. lovely post Janette. I just chanced upon your blog. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your list of 7 things.
    Good luck with the cleaning. I know how it is..I am way behind on my to do list around the house as well :(

  10. Congrats on your latest awards Janette - I loved reading your list. I feel exactly like you with #2 - it seems as though I'm constantly talking about everything I'd like to do around our place but I never actually get around to finishing any projects :) I feel the heat dreadfully at night too, especially lately as it's started getting really chilly here in the early morning.

  11. Thanks for think of me, Janette. I've had the busiest week EVER so promise to have a think and list my 7 things this afternoon!

    Happy Friday to all!
