I had the most AMAZING surprise in my 'inbox' this morning...I had gotten up early to get a 'head start' on all the paper work I need to get done for my new career..I'm anticpating now, after a huge wait for my DH's Blue Card (let's not go there today LOL) that "Mazz's Munchkins" will be underway by the middle of November YAYOO...anywayz onto the surprise! The AMAZING Sue from Purple Poppy has given me TWO (yes TWO) blog awards...OMG...I'm over the moon and delighted, it has made my day's 'head start' so much more refreshing and all the hard work that much more worthwhile :)

The first award is "Beautiful Blogger"...and I specially want to pass it on to 10 wonderful bloggers.
Please check out Sue's fabulous blog here.

The main rule for this Award is to tell you 10 things you might not know about myself, so here goes:
1. I am a Leo.
2. My shoe size is 8.
3. I am an ex-pat Kiwi (New Zealander) and I now live in Beenleigh (SE Queensland, half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast)
4. I am happiest when I'm with my family: 2 sons and 3 grandchildren who live in NZ and my darling dearest (2nd) husband and soulmate Ian (aka Biggles)
5. I am extremely receptive to romance - Ian proposed to be in a 1932 De Havalland Dragon (bi-plane) whilst dressed in his Biggles costume.
6. Our theme Wedding was "Biggles Gets Married" on 8th December 2001.
7. I dont read many books, but when I do its usually a topic that I'm passionate about at the time...I recently bt this book and I'm reading "Complete Color Harmony" (c) Tina Sutton.
8. I'm passionate about 'colour' at the moment, so I'm going to start a workshop today at Big Picture Scrapbooks, taught by my fave NZ artist Nic Howard called "Colour! Or is it Color?"at bigpicture scrapbooking.
9. My favourite colour is Orange
10. I have obstructive sleep apnea so I sleep with a CPAP at night

10 things sure was a challenge :)

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.

Thanks SO much for this award Sue
