Life in the Slow Lane: Irresistibly Sweet!

Tuesday 26 July 2011

Irresistibly Sweet!

A BIG 'Thank you' to JO for this award, which I am honoured and very pleased to accept!

In doing so, I am requested to share seven facts about myself and then pass the award on to seven great bloggers,whose blogs I really enjoy.

Firstly, seven things about me: (some of which you may already have realised!)

1. I am a self-confessed chocoholic!
2. In my previous life in the UK I was a teacher and then a Special Needs Asst.
3. I love all things American
4. I LOVE Christmas and have a double cupboard in my house just full of Christmas decorations/ornaments!
5. I miss Marks& Spencers!
6. My favourite kitchen 'gadget' is my NESPRESSO machine
7. The one thing I couldn't would hate to live without is my dishwasher

Now the hard (only seven:( ) of my favourite Bloggers. I have chosen a few of the blogs which inspired me to start blogging and a few I have 'picked up' along the way


There are so many more of you I could have added, but in the spirit of the award I stuck to the seven! It is now up to those seven lovely ladies to pass the award on in the same spirit.

Hope you're all having a great summer/winter

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx


  1. What a lovely award! Thanks for sharing your favourite seven blogs. I really, really enjoyed two of them and added them to my reader.

    Enjoy your summer as much as I am enjoying my winter :-)

  2. Wow, thank you Alison. You have made my day! It's always a pleasure to come here too and enjoy what you have been up to xx

    ps I'm a big fan of Christmas too. I love these lists which help us find out more about each other

  3. great list, I'm trying not to eat chocolate!

  4. Just left the longest comment in history & Blogger ruminated on it for about a minute then ate it...and told me "Blogger Service Unavailable" - nice! Oh well, THANKS!!!

  5. :o) Aw! Thanks, Alison. I am honored to be among the 7 you have chosen!

    I hope you are enjoying your house guests! xo

  6. You & I would just get on perfectly ... I have a double cupboard for Christmas too, and I love mt nespresso machine too lol

  7. Christmas has it's own location in my home as well! There is no way I could ever live without the dishwasher - well... Ok maybe I have but it was short lived and I didn't like it!

  8. How very kind - thank you! :) (I'm not properly catching up yet but had time to browse a little and couldn't not comment here - though it's a shame to be the 8th comment when 7 fits the theme so well....)

  9. Congrats on the aware - definitely deserved! I'm right there with you on the chocoholic trait! LOL

  10. Oh thanks so much Alison! I love learning more about my blogging friends and itis always such a pleasure to drop by here :-)


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
