Creative Blogger Award


Thank you so much, Laura from Today’s Dose of Sanity for nominating me for this award. I always like waking up in the morning to see what you guys have been doing while I’ve been sleeping – This morning I got a total surprise and had an award! As always I’m touched by the compliment so thank you, thank you Laura… you’re a star! 🙂


*Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
*Share 5 facts about yourself.
*Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them of their nomination.
*Keep the rules in your post so it makes it easy for everyone to know what to do.

My nominees:

Morgan – She’s got a great eye for a picture and her camera is busy. A great bloggie too 🙂

Chelsea – A great creative writer that needs more exposure.

Beaton – The things that go on in this guy’s mind 😀

Karen – Always up to something a fellow engineer which deserves recognition.

Five facts about me… in memes 🙂

1. I’m on my phone a lot, like Laura I use it for everything and I get frustrated because my phone can’t cope with it all? I mean – come on?!? How hard can it be. Also, I don’t use my phone while driving, so when my family knows I’m on the way home and they call me, it can be frustrating!

2. Many of you already know that I love Scifi. If I’m not watching it I’m reading it and lately I’ve started getting idea and actually writing it. Look up my other blog for some of this.

3. I love baking… you should get this from some of my previous posts 😉


4. Someone said to me today that I seem to be someone that goes out on their own to get things done. Yep, I can safely say if something needs doing then I’m inclined to do it myself!

5. I’m not normal – I’m an engineer and this is the kind of thing that I make:

I hope you enjoyed this – as always I hope you join in with this and thank you again to Laura.

Simon 🙂

    1. Thanks for your kind words. It’s makes me feel more than a little proud to hear people say that.
      I also envy you, because you have that wonder of the ‘how do they do that?’ Whereas I know more or less exactly how these things are done, there are few secrets and it’s rules and lines and patterns to me. But I still love it, it’s a big creative puzzle to me.
      Ill see if I can find the designs to put on, they’re very colourful, you’ll like them. 🙂

      1. Thank you! My husband is a 3d artist. He makes the art for big time video games. But he also understands the technical aspect. My brain just doesn’t work that way. I would love to see the designs sometime!

  1. Congratulations on your award. I always say: “if you want something done, do it yourself”! So I’m with you on that one.
    And you’re not “not normal”, you’re “extraordinary”! (I tell myself this all the time – haha!) 🙂


    1. Aww… thank you Claire. That is so sweet of you to say. I’m touched 🙂
      I hope you think you’re extraordinary too because you have a wonderful, creative nature and you’re always warm and friendly. :)))
      On another note, I made the butterfly Jaffa Cakes at the weekend. They didn’t last long lol.
      I hope you’re having an amazing day 🙂
