Yippee an Award!!!

Wow, a week or so ago I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Terese from Designed to a T! There are many stylish blogs out there but I never considered myself to be among them, so thanks again Terese!

The rules of the award are as follows:
1. Link it back to whoever awarded it to you
2. List 7 things about myself
3. Select 10 other bloggers you'd like to award the same award
4. Let them know

Okay, firstly I have had to confess a few truths in the past here, so I am struggling to find anything that may be the least bit interesting to you - anyway here goes ...

1. I am turning the big 4 0 this year

2. I mostly wear black .... something I am desperately trying to remedy
3. I am slowly kicking my magazine addiction which some of you may already know is a big thing for me

4. As we draw to the end of our renovation I am already planning our next (much to my husbands annoyance) I can't help myself ... another addiction perhaps?
5. I adore chocolate, and limit myself to 2 lines a night, but am about to read 'Sweet Poison - why sugar makes us fat' by David Gillespie on the recommendation from a friend that it "will change the way I think about food" - I have decided it best to limit myself to one line of chocolate a night whilst reading it

6. Oh how I want to be fit and 40

7. I can't wait for school to start back on Friday and daycare to start on Thursday .... okay, I'll add this to my 'crap mother list' too

Now to passing this award on to 10 other bloggers. My apologies if your name is not there, please know I love you all :)
Thank you to all these blogs and the many many others that bring me inspiration every day.

1. Sprout Gallery
2. Natural Modern Interiors
3. Cornflakes and Honey
4. McCarthy Designs
5. The Girl in the Brick House
6. The 5 Year Project
7. Fun and VJ's
8. Driftwood Interiors
9. Kyandra

Hope you are all still awake!!
Wishing you all a wonderful week.


  1. hehehehe i just posted my award and passed it onto you too.....i love reading about other's little quirks too cool xx

  2. Oh Michelle, thank you so much... Now I will have to try and think of some interesting things about myself???? Hmmmmmm Could take some time !!! Seriously though, I appreciate that I have been placed in such good company and will start to make that list ;0... X

  3. Michelle, you're a sweetie thank you so much! Congrats on your award.

    Only 2 lines you say? You are already displaying great self control :-) and we all know that dark chocolate is packed full of nutrients like iron and other fantastic things! Gillespie is wrong it's quite clear that dieting makes us fat!! :-)

    Hope you're having a lovely day! xx

  4. What!!! I didn't know YOU were turning 40 this year. I was telling everyone you were still a spring chicken :)
    You're still thin and if you're worried just stand next to your other half (joking). Apparently this makes you look thinnner. Sorry K.
    Thanks for the award. It gives me something to blog about. Yeah!

  5. Congratulations on the award. Me too- the big 40, no way I'll be fit for it though!!! Enjoy your week. Emma. xx

  6. Hi there michelle, congratulations on your award... I love reading things about other people!! I am going through my black phase too! actually, black and soccer mum ish!! something i really want to change this year!! And dont worry, i cant wait for school to go back either - too much bickering and all i seem to do all day is tidy up after them and make them more food, and more food!! Only one more week!!!
    happy australia day!!

  7. Congrats on your award! I am a reno addict too and can't help but jump into projects! So good to learn more about you :)

  8. Congratulations Michelle! I must say I relate with you that I think renovating is addictive, along with chocolate. My mother has always said I'd make a good greek widow, such is my wardrobe of black! 40 is still a spring chicken in my books.

  9. Thanks so much for the award, Michelle and congrats to you, too! It made my day! BTW - don't worry about the 4-0 thingy. Did that last year and it's really not a drama (although I did feel a pang of something unsavoury the other day when I filled out an online survey re shopping habits and the last age box was 40+ as if that was the end of the line! Wasn't happy about that. Jx

  10. Hi Michelle... Thank you so much for my award :) Its also been a big motivator as I was not too sure the best way to go forward with what has happen recently. Speak soon, Lisa

  11. Well deserved! And always amazing to read insightful things about our virtual friends. And, thought you might like to know that recently I lost 7kilos and my husband 10 and all we did was cut out sugar. And all I had extra sugar in was my tea!
