My First Blog Award

I do not really understand Blog Awards but I do know it is a kind gesture and it was nice to receive my first one from 'Bunny Mummy' .  Bunny Mummy's blog is a very pretty place to go with lots of beautiful crochet work.  Thank you for nominating me.  I think as part of this award I need to tell you 10 spectacular things about myself that you would not already know,  hmmm.  Here goes then:
1)     My home town was the home town of Led Zeppelin's Drummer John Bonham.  (I think that is cool).

2)     My favourite Film is 'Educating Rita'.  ( It makes me cry!)

3)     I have Kissed John Taylor from Duran Duran!  (I was about twelve and kissed him on the cheek.  He is the one in the middle.  How dapper did they look!)

4)     I have got my name in the acknowledgements section of a book.
        (The book is about 'Glastonbury Festival').

5)     I have eaten lunch at the top of the CN tower.

6)     I have also been to the Grand Canyon in thick thick fog!

7)     I saw Bill Clinton Jogging in Washington DC with all of his security, he was jogging I most definitely   wasn't, I have also been in 'The Whitehouse'. ( That's two but they are kind of connected and they are all pretty lame so I will throw in one extra for free.  lol)

8)     At school I was a prefect and in the choir!

9)      I have won three separate prizes for cooking or recipes in my lifetime.

10)    I can impersonate 'Olive Oyl' from Popeye ( I can also do an impersonation of 'Tweetie Pie').
  Shame I can't show you really beause you would see how talented I am!
