Blog Awards from Betty,Shirley, Anne, Eiglas and Sam!

I've been really naughty and haven't been spreading any Blog Awards about for ages, so here I am spreading them about now. Thank you to Liverpool Lou (Anne), Nannieflash, (Shirley) and this one at the top is from the lovely, the one and only Eiglas , and Sam from Sam's Shack, who does all the 'workings' (and much more) behind the scenes at OSAAT and last but by no means least, (drum roll pleaasssse!!) Betty The Baglady!
o I'm not being rude, she's a Baglady and that's one of the rules when accepting this first award, you have to tell six, or was it seven, absolutely truthful lies about yourself, which should be very easy! Six truths and one lie or one lie and six figure it out!
But first I must say I'm very sorry not to put these on here sooner and there's two, which I'm extremely sorry to say I've forgotten where they've come from, and no, I haven't started the fibbing bit yet!! Here we go.....
  1. I once jumped off the Isle of Wight ferry after my brand new very expensive hand bag fell over board, luckily a passing mermaid saved me, as I'd forgotten I couldn't swim but left me stranded on a very large buoy in the middle of the Solent, where I was rescued by a navy helicopter, piloted by seven Chippendale's and a dwarf.
  2. Dressed as a clown, wearing a yellow wig and stripped tights and a big red nose, I've painted pretty faces on the balding heads of members of the British Army, after of course, they put their guns down.
  3. In my twenties I bungee jumped off San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge wearing nothing but a fig leaf with Elvis Presley's twin brother, who poohed his pants and lost his wig.
  4. I've written sixteen books on 'How to do Everything Better', under the sudo name of I.M. Damgood. Last week, at a local book signing, David Cameron bought two copies and asked me to sign his copy as well as one for Nick Glegg.
  5. I love house work and my mansion home is spotless, even the cat has been trained to wipe it's feet and use the loo. All the ironing is done straight away and I never use my ironing board to craft on. Hubby never has to cook, as we employ Jamie Oliver to come in on his days off. We once employed Nigella Lawson, but had to sack her for eating my secret supply of chocolate.
  6. I've abseiled down Nelson's column dressed as a pink Polar bear and was attacked by a flock of flesh eating pigeons, luckily I had peanuts with me and he, Charley Brown and Snoopy drove them away in a Mini Cooper.
  7. This has taken me about thirty nine seconds to write as I'm extremely clever and have an iQ of 298 . I never tell fibs and one of these lies is true!
I would love to pass these Awards on to everyone who has become a follower, commented, or pops in for a visit, or wants one, but first everyone on the two design teams I'm on at One Stitch at a Time and Quirky Craft's (You know who you are!) and then.....
Shirley, Sylvia, Scrappy Jacky Jackie's Crafts SnoopysStuff, (Sue), Shell, Netty Julia (WOYWW), Cal's Creations Liverpool Lou Crafty Chris Paula, Bluebeard and Elizabeth Niki Joe's Stuff Carol Ann Crafty Linby Paul Trimgyms Lynn Heidi Hunter's Moon (Sam) Wispo Mandy, Crafty Angel Happy Crafter AnnMaree(Upagumtree) Angie Jan Crafty Kitten Kirsti Scrappy Heike Sue(Sue's Art of Craft) Andie's Space Dragonlady and little Dragon too, (but I haven't got a link) and many many more!!
Please chose one you would like, and add a link back here and praise the lovely blogger who sent it to you and then pass it on to a couple or seven lovely bloggers. But don't forget, if you chose the top one, we want to hear your six or seven truthful lies about yourself...
