Stylish Blogger Award!

What a lovely surprise - this week just keeps getting better! 

Not only has the made by lolly x FB page now reached 350 fans, I have also been awarded a stylish blogger award! 

Thanks so much to Olivia from Girlybunches for awarding it to me!
You can see Olivia's blog and the rest of her nominations by following this link

But... the award comes with a great responsibility and a list of instructions on passing on the award to others who you admire!

Stylish Blogger Award Rules!
The rules of the nomination are:
  1. Thank the person and include the link for the nomination.
  2. Share seven things about yourself. 
  3. Nominate 15 blogs for the award. 
  4. Let everyone know they have been nominated...
Now, I think that some of these rules are going to be easier to follow than others! Mmmm this may need a little thought -  I may need a cuppa!

Ok - so the seven things about me are:
  1. I can be very clumsy 
  2. I am often afflicted by terrible hiccups that make my whole body shake and make me sound like a frog!
  3. I love storage but am rubbish at actually putting anything away in its proper home!
  4. I would love to have a posh camera and learn how to take fantastic photos
  5. I love food and cooking, and wish I had the money and the skill to cook not just 'good food' but 'great food'
  6. I am determined not to have to wait until I am an old woman to "wear purple with a red hat that doesn't go"....or "sit down on the pavement when I'm tired and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells and run my stick along the public railings...and hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes."
  7. I am a child of the 80's and a teenager of the 90's so my favourite films will always be The Goonies, Reality Bites, Groundhog Day, Before Sunrise and Back to the Future!

The Literary Critical Detective
