I have had a terrible few days. Disappointed in love (amazed at how low some people will go), disappointed in my handwashing skills (shrank a gorgeous vintage frock) and disappointed with Amy Winehouse’s Beloved Camden Cobbles (ripped the heel off a favourite pair of shoes). Was feeling very down in the dumps until I checked my emails and found I had WON AN AWARD!

I feel like I have won an OSCAR as Matthew over at Movietone-Newshas awarded me a Kreativ Blogger award. Yowzer. Soooooooo chuffed. Apparently there are two conditions involved in accepting the award. First, one must list seven other blogs to receive the award, and secondly reveal ‘seven things you don’t know about me’. So here we go. My current favourite 7 blogs – click on the blue name to check them out for yourselves:

Silent Stanzas – wonderful poetry about stars of the silent era
Carole Lombard – my favourite single star website – just gorgeous
Allure – I’d like some please
Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog– one of the first blogs I ever read, and it still tickles me
Matilda’s Delights – always something lovely to look at
Sassy Minx– my cheerleader
Kemp Folds – silly but I love it

And seven things you MAY not know about me:

1 – My hair IS longer than Anna May Wong’s (see post from Oct 16th) – 25 inches long in fact, from centre parting to split ends.
2 – Like Marilyn Monroe in “How To Marry A Millionaire” I am far too vain to wear my glasses.
3 – I come over all peculiar if I ever see Fran Healy or Ricky Whittle on the telebox.
4 – I strongly dislike my best friend’s favourite classic movie (she does not know this).
5 – The film I have watched more than any other is Gone With The Wind.
6 – I don’t like to touch any tea towel unless it belongs to me.
7 – Janet Gaynor’s Ice Box Cookies are my favourite thing to cook.

I shall now bask in the glory of being an award winner – how utterly, utterly lovely!
