For Sale: 1 x Invisibilty Cloak

21 Sep

Sometimes I think I’m invisible. Not in a super hero kind of way but really truly invisible, like I’m not even here. Cars never give way to me at roundabouts, my kids don’t seem to hear that I’ve already asked them to pick up their dirty socks for the 657th time and wonder why I’m upset, people forget they have met me before, telemarketers keep ringing me even though I’ve yelled words at them not suitable for print. Nobody listens to me, or so I thought. Apparently a number of people are actually reading this blog, commenting even. It seems that one of my lovely Followers thought my blog worthy of an award! The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you to Mrs D’s Maunderings for nominating The Hunter Gatherers blog. Go check her out, I love her dry wit.


So now that I’m a celebrity (on the inside of my own eyelids) awards seem to have a flow on effect and I find myself nominated for another accolade – The Seven Things About Me award. Thank you to Edwina from Reretro for naming me as a worthy recipient. Edwina is a fellow Hunter Gatherer so if you love vintage homewares you must take a look at her blog, you can even buy from her collection!

Now part of the rules of these awards are that I have to reveal seven things about myself, so here we go…

1. I do awesome voices when reading story books to my kids.

2. I LOVE being able to pick food from my garden to prepare a meal.

3. I lip read.

4. I love to cook and have a really sweet tooth.

5. I own a vast collection of beauty products.

6. I used to be a dancer.

7. I hate eggs so going out for breakfast at a cafe is a painful experience

These awards encourage Blog exposure, so here are my top Blog recs. Reading the above list validates my choices here. Seek them out, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do.

    Congratulations Bec! That’s awesome. I think I already own an invisibility cloak, especially at a deli counter. You can turn up 20 mins after me and still get served first. Well done on the nominations, fingers crossed for you xx

    Congratulations! Very much deserved. And thank you for mentioning my little blog. xx

    Congratulations to you indeed!

    Thanks so much for including me in your list of recommendations – such an honour! ^_^ I, too, know how it feels when it seems as though no one in the world is listening, and blogging to me is just a great way to share my thoughts about things I love. It’s a wonderful feeling to get page views on it LOL and a bonus when a reader makes a positive comment or shares his/her love of what you blog about.

    Happy blogging! 😉
