“What a Lovely Blog!”

I’m lovely! OK fine, my blog is lovely!

So I got nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by the lovely Hayley Margaret from A Stitch to Scratch. Thank you Hayley! You should check her out, her posts leave me in stitches! Get it, get it? No?! Well, deal with it. “Why”?!   

Because I say sew!

Can’t make two stitching puns in a row they said. Unseamly, they said.

I showed them. 

Is this what you’re doing right now?  DON’T LEAVE, PLEASE!

Before you think I’m some sort of knit-twit… OK THAT WAS THE LAST ONE I PROMISE, let’s get serious.


Okay cool.

The One Lovely Blog Award is an awesome way of promoting & appreciating new bloggers and their lovely blogs. You get nominated by fellow bloggers and there are a few rules you have to follow:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  • Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
  • Share 7 facts/things about yourself.
  • Nominate around 15 bloggers you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.
Don't ask; I apparently decided to go all colourful today.

Here are my seven facts! And don’t judge me if my seven facts turn out to be just random nonsense.


I’m a morning person. My day usually starts at 6. If sometimes I over sleep and wake up at 9.30 I will feel like my entire day has gone by and not be productive at all, EVEN IF on some days the only thing I do after waking up at 6 a.m. is walk from the bedroom to the couch in the living room and sit on YouTube or curl up and read a book.


I can’t STAND washing my face and then not drying it IMMEDIATELY with a towel. No idea why I think this is relevant information here. But if you ever decide to splash water on me, I hope you’re considerate enough to bring a towel along.



I’m a nervous flyer. I would actually enjoy the take off part if there weren’t a million thoughts running in my head. “Is this airplane safe? Will the wheels burst?” “Oh god, what is that loud noise? Is that normal? Oh wait, I think it is.” “Why does that kid have to start crying now?!” Relax, let’s look outside. Wait, does that wing look a bit off?” and the dramatic “Was today my last time on earth?!” 


I can proudly say that I have peed my pants just once in my entire life (post potty training of course). Funny story. I was maybe three-ish? Sneaked into the kitchen when no one was inside, locked the door, opened that tin of heaven that was milk powder, realised after blissful eating time that I had no idea how to unlock a door, dad started banging on the other side, I got scared and the deed was done.


I love cheese. Yeah, that’s Fact no. 5 for you. If you ever decide to visit, you know what to bring now.


I love the smell of nail polish, paint and white ink pens.

Pfft. Showoff.


I get cold very easily. Tragic really, because the concept of winter and snow combined just seems so..romantic. Born and brought up in a desert, I’ve never seen snow in my life!


Now on to nominating some lovely people!

Still Life with Grad Student, you’re it! Gimme some facts.

Sucheta The Scribbler, you’re it! Scribble some facts.

Penguin Ponderings, you’re it! Ponder on some facts.

Create a Crafty Corner, you’re it! Create some facts.

Gibber Jabberin, you’re it! Jabber some facts?

CatWomaniya, you’re it! umm..

Forgotten NZ, you’re it! Don’t forget to post some facts.

Apparently Anna Has Some Explaining to do, you’re it! Explain some facts!

I’m nominating you because I think your blogs are quite lovely and I enjoy reading them so keep up the good work!

And remember, I want some embarrassing facts. 


Good morning!

  1. Stop with the textile crafts puns! It’s making me all crochety!
    And let me tell you, winter and snow is so not romantic. It’s cold, it’s wet, the wind hurts your face, and good luck if you have to drive. What’s so great about snow anyway? It’s just water dressed up fancy. It’s water ready to go clubbing on Saturday night. It’s not as great as it think it is.

    1. Sorry, didn’t mean to be a prick.
      Oh you know what I’ve seen? Fake snow in a fake-ass building with fake snow slopes and you’re pathetically throwing fake snowballs at each other because that is apparently the next best thing. But just as well I guess, because slightly chilly December arrives and I’m already bundled up in my sweater here.
