MIA Reason & Blog Award

I've been missing for the last few days due to having the floods rush thru our small Country town and having the power off. It's now blaring sunshine, boiling hot and hardly any evidence of any rain anywhere at all....let alone raging flash floods. It's almost surreal.
I'm also in a bad mood today and exhausted, this may reflect in today's post so just ignore most of it.

I've been tagged for this Stylish Blog Award by several different bloggers and thought I had better pass it on. The bloggers are:, and Thanks Carina, Melanie and NailNoir!

These are the rules:
1. Thank and link the person who gave it to you,
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself
3. Give the award to 15 other bloggers and let them know about it.

Here are seven random facts about me:

1) There's no way to put this nicely so..... I HATE doing blog award posts. I am sincerely sorry to those who pass it on to me all the time but I just don't like them! I feel I am not that interesting and struggle to think up 7 things different about me.....I have heaps of other stuff to do instead! :)

2) I can't sleep most nights and spend almost everyday in a zombie coma trying to survive.

3) I dress in Pin Up style because I love it but I can't handle the way people stare at me because of it. Hasn't anyone ever seen someone in a nice dress before?? Sheesh.

4) I was an excellent hockey player in High School. I was invited to start playing professionally but my parents wouldn't let me. I still remind them constantly of how they ruined my life at the age of 15.

5) I am dying to be a Bond Girl....but a bad ass one. Why can't a Hollywood scout find me and be convinced I am perfect to play the next Pussy Galore?

6) I collect antique Advertising tins that date before 1940. I have 1,500 of them which fill a very big room. I concentrate on Toffee and candy tins but also get sucked in with Tobacco and Cigarette ones if it has a pretty picture on the front.

7) If I was mega-rich I would employ a Jamaican dude with waist length dreadlocks to clean my house...dressed in only a loincloth.

For my pass it on choices, I choose all my sister polish pals in the Oz Polish Gumleaf Mafia! See my link to the right for all their details.
