Kreative Blogger Award

An award?!?... YAY!

I would like to thank Working London Mummy for sending me a Kreativ Blogger Award. I though it would be fun to pass it on, so here goes.
I'll start with the rules:
  • Link to 10 blogs; 
  • Tell these bloggers about the award; and
  • Share 10 facts about yourself
I'll start with my 10 facts:
    1. I have a Bachelors degree in Archaeological Science and a Masters degree in Osteology, Palaeopathology and Funerary Archaeology (bet you've never heard of that!)
    2.  Before I escaped to New Zealand, I lived in the Netherlands for over 10 years. I went there for a 6 month archaeology contract and ended up staying...
    3. I do not consider myself a natural linguist, but I am fluent in Dutch (or I used to be!). Five years away from the place and its got a bit rusty.
    4. My brain has room for a maximum of 2 languages (English & foreign). So when I returned to the Netherlands after spending a couple of months working in Jordan,  I confused people by responding to Dutch with stumbling Arabic (oops!)
    5. My blog is called Craft and Nappies, but I don’t think I’ve mentioned nappies once. Both my children are in cloth nappies. If anyone’s interested we use Bummis covers and prefold nappies. LOVE THEM!
    6. I breastfed Rascal till she was 20 months old. I learnt not to talk about it after she turned one as I got sick of being judged. I just didn’t see the logic of stopping breastfeeding her earlier only to give her formula…
    7. We used baby sign language with Rascal and I can’t wait till Wee Man starts picking it up. Its great fun to communicate so well with really young children and it helps to avoid lots of frustration.
    8. After years of being FORCED to eat “just one brussel sprout”, my hatred of the dreaded sprout is very deeply ingrained. That said, I don’t actually mind their taste that much any more. I probably would eat them if it hadn't become such a matter of principal... Just don't tell my Dad!
    9. I am NOT a morning person, but if I can drag myself out of bed, I do my best work in the morning.
    10. I wish I had a stronger Scottish accent
      I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers (in no particular order)... please don't feel obliged to pass it further if you don't want to.
      1. Make It Give It- Let It Shine
      2. Imagination Overload
      3. Dee*construction
      4. Mummy Adventures
      5. Mousehouse
      6. Works in Progress
      7. Creating Childhood Memories
      8. Striking Keys
      9. Hello Fallow
      10. 1000 Homes of Happiness


      1. Thanks so much!! I'll have to go and check out the others xxx

      2. thank you so much for the award, much appreciated! am just reading up on your masters degree now, had no idea what any of those meant!

      3. lovely, good to hear about you in this post!

      4. Thanks!!! I will definitely try to think of 10 interesting things about me. I don't even know if I regularly read 10 bloggers and you picked some of my favourites already. I'll be checking out your choices though AND it's my first ever award. Yay! BTW - you sound rather clever!

      5. Congrats to your award!!! Keep up the good work!

        We use sign language to my second daughter as well. And just like what you have said it lessens the frustration within the family. Communication has been very easy with baby signing.

        Thanks for dropping by my blog! Hope you come back soon! I'm following you, by the way. If you could follow me back that would be awesome! Thanks!

      6. too sweet! Thankyou ever so much for the award and thinking of us xoxox

        I love your 10 little bits of interesting. Nice to get to know the person behind the blog.


      7. Loved reading all those juicy things about you. Now, for the sprouts thing, IF you want to try them again, slice them thinly and then stir fry them - you might be pleasantly surprised ;)


      I love your comments and do my best to answer them.
