Bloggy awards!

Hello friendly readers, I received 4 bloggy awards over the last couple of days!! The first came from my Danish bloggy friend Mals from the blog Malsen - a super friendly blogger with an amazing taste in handbags and a finger on the fashion pulse! My second came from a new bloggy friend Hilary from a girl and her dog who is also having fun renovating her house. The next was a lovely Sunshine Award from Louise from Illume Design and the last from Janette from My Sweet Prints!  Both of these a new lovely blogs I have discovered.
Yay, how special am I??!!

Well, I'm going to blend the awards and make it one quirky post. Hope that's ok!
Right, so 7 facts and 6 things I am a master in... ok, so we'll see what comes up......
  1. I have a strange ability to spin plates like they do in the circus. I had no idea I could do this until I tried at a circus workshop we were holding at work. At one point I had about 5 plates on the go. Not the most useful talent.
  2. I recently discovered I am able to cut hair in a not too unstylish manner. Lyn was my brave guinea pig but we have decided that it could be an ongoing thing.
  3. Despite being quite girly, I am rather handy on the power tools. I even have my own tool bag.
  4. I am a master at coordinating my socks and undies with my outfit so I feel "balanced".
  5. I am quite good at applying eye-liner. Any sort really and am also a dab hand at eyeshadow. Maybe I should have been a make-up artist, what fun that would be!
  6. I mimic. I do it without realising it. I mimic adverts, sounds, music - you name it, if I hear it I find myself copying it.
  7. I have a good 'nose'. Well, my nose is ok looking but it works really well. I can pick out fragrances and smells really well. Not quite as well as the cooky guy in the book "Perfume", but better than average.
Well, the rules are that I invite some other bloggers to take part.  I think I might ask a few bloggers who I have recently discovered and you might not discovered yet...
Deb from Chantilly Cottage
Jess from the beat my heart skips
Kerry from A Tranquil Townhouse
Sarah from Flourish Design + Style
Samantha fom The Nest
You guys don't have to play along - totally up to you!
