Brightside award

I received this fabby award from the lovely Sharon ... and unfortunately I've been so mad busy for the past week or more that I've had no time to park my rear and actually put it onto my blog.
But at last!! I've got a little time to catch my breath, so here goes! To accept the award you need to take part in a little information sharing

1. Give a top 10 list of the things that makes you happy.
2. Give a top 5 list of trivia about yourself.
3. Share the award with only 5 persons and ask them to do the same thing.
4. Link the blogs you choose and link the blog of the person awarded you.

Top 10 things that make me happy:

1. My wonderful husband - esp. when he is cooking one of his yummy dinners for me 2. Talking to my mum on the phone.
3. When a card comes together and I'm happy with how it's turned out!
4. Weekend breaks with my husband - esp. pottering about exploring new towns or cities.
5. Reading a great book (esp. historical novels and biographies).
6. When the postie brings me a fab parcel of new crafting goodies :-)
7. Going out with friends to the theatre or a show.
8. Eating chocolate!
9. Finishing a work project and feeling I've produced good work.
10. When the train home from work isn't late (rare!)

5 trivia things about me (ooh I'm struggling with this one!)

1. I love history and am absolutely obsessed with the Tudors - so if i ever go on Mastermind that would have to be my specialist subject.
2. I used to take ballroom dancing classes and once took part in an amateur show as part of a Latin formation team ... these days I restrict my efforts to watching Strictly Come Dancing!
3. I once visited Israel on a mini-tour whilst on holiday, and saw all the amazing sights of Jerusalem and Bethlehem - the most fascinating palces I have ever visisted.
4. I wear my grandmother's engagement ring which is 85 years old.
5. I'm a real chocoholic when it comes to chocolate bars or boxed chocs, but I can't eat choc puddings ar drink hot chocolate as they are too rich and make me feel sick!

Just need to pass this on now .... so I'd like to pass it on to Marcea, Squirrel, Sue, Kaz and Kath.
