These things must be like buses

Many thanks to Liz, of the pragmatic costumer, who nominated me for another blog things award, this one is very inspiring


I am suitably embarassed by riches

The award demands that you:
1. Display the award and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. State 7 facts about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.
4. Notify the winners.

Better think of seven more lies facts

I’ve been to RADA you know – it was two summer schools, which were fun, and I learned that I would be a terrible actor

I am, however, a bloody good storyteller.

one of my Great grandfathers was a champion clogger. This must be an ability that doesn’t come down the generations, as I have no dancing ability whatsoever – just ask the very patient dance teachers at the above mentioned drama school.

one of my grandfathers often chauffeured Agatha Christie when she went on holiday in Devon.

I’m terrified of slugs. For me slugs justify athiesm because no sane diety would animate a bogey (that’s booger for you americans)

I found Gareth hanging around on the internet. I’ve considered putting him back there, possibly on Ebay, but I doubt anyone else would be daft enough to take him.

I have a ridiculously loud voice. I’m sort of like the female version of Brian Blessed (without the beard)

And in no particular order-

a blog about silversmithing

some mad drawings that make me laugh


quilting and dolls and stuff



seventeenth century stuff

medieval textiles

more architecture

natural dyes

medieval stuff


Ok, so one of those I’ve broken the rules and not informed them, but only because blogger simply would not allow me to leave comments
