Mrs Blighty's Important Award and Important Blogger Meet Up

Dahlings, exciting news, I have been nominated for a Stylish Blogger Award by the very kind SoFrenchyChic,
A condition of the award is to tell you 7 things about me. So here goes:
  1. I am an Olympic standard figure skater and synchronised swimmer, but rarely perform the two sports simultaneously;
  2. Rumours that Blights cheated in the synchronised swimming are completely unfounded
  3. I have been having a torrid affair with Daniel Craig for the last 3 years, managing to keep it secret from the world's Press, my husband and indeed from Mr Craig himself;
  4. Prince William actually asked me to marry him before he settled on that Middleton girl,but Mr Blighty pointed out that the planned wedding date clashed with our annual caravanning holiday in Bognor Regis, so I had to decline;
  5. One of my son's paintings ("Mad Axeman Vomits Blue Paint on a Dalek") is currently on display at the Royal Academy and rumour has it that that Saatchi chap wants to buy it;
  6. I play a mean electric guitar and Mick and Keef used to come round to ours for jamming sessions, till Mr B banned them, as Keef was always falling over and getting cigarette ash everywhere;
  7. I am not bad at Maths and Professor Stephen Hawkins regularly consults me on tricky problems, the near fail I got for O level Maths was quite frankly a travesty;
  8. Here's me lending a helping hand/paw with the Maths
  9. I am a complete fantasist and topclass gobshite, but very occasionally I tell the truth.
Now I have to tell you all about 15 recently discovered great bloggers. Oof, it's hard to limit it to 15 but here we go, in no particular order, so don't get huffy if you are not first:
So guys, over to you and below is the smallprint. Have fun!

The conditions of receiving the Stylish Blogger award are:
* Thank and link back to the person(s) who gave me this award.
* Share 7 things about myself.
* Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
* Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award.

Apart from awards, I am dead excited to be meeting Louise from North of Q, hopefully tomorrow. Stay posted for the next episode of When Blogger Met Blogger!
Must go now, as in the never ending home improvement quest and accompanying project management failings, Ron and Ron, builders by Royal Appointment, are coming tomorrow to demolish wardrobes in Boy 2's room. This means I have to move Boy 2, 3005 pieces of Lego, 15 puffles and his collection of twiddly hankies (don't ask) plus furniture, into another room, or possibly the garage. After a nice cup of tea of course. No point rushing into things, without proper sustenance.


  1. Dear Blighty,

    That picture of you holding up the 5x table is cute. Have you ever thought about starting a line of educational products? You can start with school supplies like rulers and notebooks, then exercise books/copy books, and so on! The business model can be like Hello Kitty's: slap on your likeness onto everything and anything. Soon the world can have a Blighty Toaster!


  2. Congratulations Blighty!
    I'll think of you tonight as I watch the Golden Globes!

  3. Thank you Blighty!

    I will think hard and try and top your answers!

  4. Congratulations on your award Blighty and thank you for passing it on to me! I shall be a good blogger and pass it on. NHG x

  5. Now I see how those synch swimmers stay upside down for so long! I'm so excited to learn all these wonderful things about you, you are special.
    Best of luck in clearing up all the Lego.

  6. dear blights.

    so nice to learn more about you. i am most fascinated with #2 as i myself have a similar affair going. i am honored that i made your list. you should never have named me as i am a lousy passer on-er.


  7. Dear Mrs Blighty, I loved the seven things about yourself - what a dark horse you are. My girls have spontaneously been working on a synchronised swimming routine - clearly they were channeling you and you know how I feel about Mr Craig. Commiserations regarding the renovations. One gets no help from anyone as one's spouse simply states that he never thought that they were a good idea anyway as he deftly leaves for work and the children carry on as if they are being made refugees. One way I find I can do these sorts of things is to leave them to the last minute to ensure I feel perfectly aggravated and then I work to a rhythm of expletives. An alternative method is to set the kitchen timer for 15 minutes, do 15 minutes and then have another cup of tea, repeat etc. One does have to drink quite a bit of tea however...

  8. Congratulations on your Stylish Blogger Award, Blighty and it's very kind of you to pass it on to me, I feel most honored - but I have to warn you that I am a bit crap at these things. I always intend to answer the questions and share the love but I never seem to get round to it. I will try to make more of an effort this time, thank you for thinking of me. Hope you're enjoying the Golden Globes with Mr Craig!

  9. I adore your wicked sense of humour Blights, thanks for my morning giggle.
    Make sure you and Lou eat lots of cake between gasbagging and have a fab time. Envious beyond words I am.

  10. Wow - I am so honoured! Thank you! It's almost as good as winning a Golden Globe!

    Your answers are tres amusing. Love them. Will send my imaginary children to you for Maths homework and synchronised swimming tutoring... So many talents Blighty!

  11. Dear Mrs Blighty, Please give Louise from Townsville a hug from me. I think that you may not have to worry regarding the snak. By the way, are your boys reading "How to train your Dragon?" It is such a funny read - I had to finish it myself after my youngest fell asleep.

  12. Hey, what cool surprise. Thank you Blighty! I will tell the 7 things about me but wont be able to nominate 15 bloggers because a) I know so little, b) most of them already received the stylish blogger award. One big group we are!
    PS: your tail never looked Better!

  13. Aargh, now I'll have to actually do something that requires thought. I'm honored you actually take time to read my blog, what with all the synchronised maths and fag end cleaning, so I'll do my best Blighty.
    Don't get your tail stuck down the plug hole.

  14. Dear Everyone that I Tagged, i apologise as I realise it is a major faff and quite understand that you aren't keen on linking150,000 other head is so easily turned that if someone tells me I have an award and all I need to do is clean the kitchen floor and shout "Pants" everytime I see a car, I would of course do it..xx actually I do that anyway..

  15. Linda, hands off Mr C, he is ALL MINE. Agree totally about spouse attitude to home renovations.
    Legend - got my tail stuck once, never again, really made my eyes water.

  16. Loved this post BLighty and your answers! You are too funny for words!! X

  17. Loving your blog... I'm following!

    Would love you to enter my giveaway:


  18. Dear Milly, thank you for following my blog, will now go look at your blog as love the name xx

  19. Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
