Now… I know, strictly speaking, that the award is ‘One Lovely Blog,’ but as soon as I read the nomination, I thought; ‘how loverly.’ I kid you not.

Right, now that’s out of my system, let’s get on with it.

Kate over at 4amWriter was kind enough to nominate me for the One Lovely Blog award almost a month ago! Not only that, but she made her own acceptances rhyme! I’m nowhere near as good as that – nor do I have the time to organise that – but you should check out the post. Its a cool little string of rhymes. πŸ™‚

Now, I promised last time that I would follow the rules a bit more with this, so I need to tell you (more) seven things about myself. o.O

  1. I don’t like brussel sprouts. Those things were sent to test me!
  2. I was almost eleven years old before I decided I liked pizza; previous to that I’d refused to try it!
  3. I’ve used my keyboard soooo hard over the years that all the letters have worn off. I’ve refused to change it because 1) I don’t need the letters – I touch type – and 2) no other keyboard is quite as comfortable as this one.
  4. When I cook, I never measure anything. Ever. All flavouring, seasoning and the like is done by eye and luck. I’ve not poisoned anybody yet, so I can’t be doing badly!
  5. Last week I made yoghurt with my own breast milk (Juls, that’s totally your fault!). It wasn’t actually all that nice. 😦 I’ll have to try again with another batch because I think I did it wrong.
  6. I have never once shaved my legs – not that you’d ever know. πŸ™‚
  7. I used to hate children. Yes… I’ll admit it; I just never got on with them. Boy, how fast some things can change!

Hehee, I wonder how much of that would qualify me for an other TMI Award? :p

Okay, with that much done I want to nominate five other blogs for this award. My last list was rather extensive, so I think, this time, I’ll draw your attention towards five blogs that I’ve followed only recently. They drew my attention for one reason or another and I think you may enjoy them too. Plus they deserve the award!
The Om Blog
Adventures For The Faint Of Heart (not updated as regularly as some, but an amusing read nonetheless)
Writing Between The Lines (okay, not a recent follow, but Naomi always has such lovely stories!)
Craig Hallam
Joy In The Moments

Woo, all done.

Catch you next time!

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Hahaha! I wonder if there’s a difference in the making of yoghurt yoghurt and breastmilk yoghurt? God, your questioning has lead me down a while weird path in culinary curiosity.


    • It worked the same way when I did it, but I was trying to strain the whey off and left it too long. Not only that, but I left it out the fridge (!!!) which meant it tasty lovely right until the end. There was a very odd after taste. But… I think I’ve cracked it now.

      I’ve got a lovely sample in the fridge, a bit lumpy, but mega tasty. So I can probably try it with breastmilk again. ^_^ If I can get it right, the kids will love it *fingers crossed*

    Congrats! Now I’m interested, do you wax your legs or just leave them? If I didn’t shave mine, they would be insane! haha x

    Hooray! Love your fun facts. I don’t measure anything when I’m cooking if I am familiar enough with the recipe. But first time, I usually check . Unless I’m making a Kate’s Kreation–then it’s all on a wing and a prayer. πŸ™‚


    • Sounds like the way to cook to be honest. πŸ™‚
      I think the last time I even looked at a recipe it was for scones and I was so unconvinced by the measurements that I just made it up.
      Let’s just say that I liked them, which is fortunate, because there were about 12 and not many others seemed keen. o.O

    Congratulations and totally well-deserved. πŸ™‚ I’ve heard of using breast milk in baking before, but never for yogurt. I know women didn’t do anything like that in my mother’s day!

    I usually measure for recipes. I always think I’ll ruin the dish if I try to improvise. πŸ˜‰


  5. Hi Ileandra,
    Congratulations on your award. I loved all the stuff you chose to share–really interesting. And thanks so much for passing this on to me–I am honored.

    Positively one of my favorite films of all time. when she’s dressed in that white gown for the ball…*sigh*. She’s simply stunning.


    • I know; as soon as I wrote the post I had an itch to watch it. I still haven’t managed to yet, so I’m probably going to be singing until I do.

      …i have often walked down this street before. But the ground has always stayed beneath my feet before…! πŸ˜‰

        I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night, and still have begged for more.
        I could have spread my wings and done a thousand things, I’d never done before….

        Okay, I must get out the dvd. So many excellent scenes and music. It’s a shame they didn’t let Audrey Hepburn sing her own parts. She had a right good voice.

    Oh, and congrats on the award. *facepalm*. I forgot to mention it in my first reply.
