Awards and Tags!

I know, I'm bad at passing on these awards, I find that time gets the better of me. Here are some overdue ones, some new ones, and a ton of thanks!

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Firstly, not an award but a big thanks to Sunita from Sunita's World, for the Flickr Pro Account which she donated to the recent appeal for Bri. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know about her or her beautiful food blog, but I do now!
Thank you Sunita!

I'm a chocoholic logo

Thank you to Yasmeen from Health Nut, for giving me the 'I'm a Chocoholic' award - how did she know?

I don't know if all these bloggers are chocoholics, but they all have delicious sweet treats on their blogs:
The Goddess's Kitchen
Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
Snooky Doodle Cakes
Technicolor Kitchen

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thanks to Sam, from a great blog called Antics of a Cycling Cook, he tagged me for 6 random things about myself. Also to Deeba at Passionate About Baking and Anne at Anne's Kitchen who both tagged me for 7 random things:
  1. I love eating chocolate and plain salted crisps together.
  2. One of my favourite groups is Razorlight.
  3. I once shaved off half an eyebrow (don't ask!)
  4. I can't stand all that 'celebrity' hype, I've never bought or read a Hello, OK etc, I'm not lining their pockets even more.
  5. Hair straighteners are my friend. ;)
  6. The last time I wore a dress was at my sister's wedding, 4 years ago.
  7. I always do a Suduko before I go to sleep, I like the really hard ones.
I am going to tag:
Jeanne at Cook Sister!
Lisa at My Own Sweet Thyme
Bev at Yummy In My Tummy

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Sam also gave me the 'E for Excellence' award - thank you for saying such terrific things about my blog!
