Happy Valentines Day

Good Evening and Happy Valentines to you all.  I hope you are all able to be spending your evening with your loved ones.  I am sorry I haven't been posting for a few days.  I have been spending some much needed time with my family while.  We have all been supporting each other through a difficult time in our life.  I am expecting this to be the case for some time yet so please bear with me, I am hoping that usually blogging will resume soon.

I have been meaning to post this for some time now so apologies again.  I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to LissyLou who has awarded me this:

How exciting hey?  Now the rules are: 

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

7 Things about Me.
* I love Rose flavoured Turkish Delights.  Either coated in Chocolate or without, I'm not fussy.  Me and James went to Turkey a couple of years back, there was a Turkish delight shop with every flavour imaginable, of course I had to try them all, it was amazing, but Rose is still my favourite flavour. 

* I used to work in a Travel Agents.  For 4 years I worked for Thomas Cook.  Although getting discounts on my holidays was amazing, it just wasn't the job for me.

* I too like Lissy Lou love Kinder chocolate.  Although I don't like the kinder bueno's.  But I love either Kinder Eggs or Kinder chocolate bars yum.

* I am a sucker for chick flicks.  Any kind of Rom-Com and I'm there : )

* I am off to see usher again, yes again.  The same show as last week, I'm going on Friday.  I have managed to get seats 3 rows from the front.  You can imagine how excited I am : )  I physically cannot wait.

* I hate chicken.  I know this is a bit of a bizarre thing to put but it is a fact about me and everyone seems to be so amazed by it when they find out.  I don't know why I don't like it.  It is something I have never liked and have tried it on many occasions, as it has to be the worst type of meat not to like, it is practically in everything so I have even tried willing myself to like it but .  Maybe one day, but just not today!
*I would love to one day be able to say that I have travelled the world.  I doubt this will ever happen, but a girl has to have dreams, right?

I actually didn't realise how hard it is to think of 7 facts about myself, which is pretty ironic really considering that this blog is about me.  I suppose the hard part was trying to think about things that I haven't yet shared with you all. 

Anyways now to pass on to 15 fellow bloggers.  Here it goes.  I would like to pass this award on to:

OK so that is my chosen 15, a tough decision.  Now I just have to contact them all to let them know they have won an award.  My apologies if you read this before getting your message, I am slowly getting around to it : ).

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening.

Love Gem xxx



  1. i always have a hard time thinking of facts to share about myself without feeling like a big dork : ) so i know just what you mean! i do love reading more about others though, always interesting...thanks for sharing! have fun at Usher!

  2. Hi Gem,
    Hope you've had a fab valentines!
    Thank you for the award, must try to blog it this week or I will forget!!

  3. Thank you for the award and I hope you have lots of fun at the Usher concert.

  4. Hi Gem, many thanks for my award, that's really very kind of you! I will try to post soon, not sure I have any facts left to give, but I shall try!!!!!

    Hope you have a super week!

  5. You are all very welcome : )

    I don't mind live chickens, infact I quite like them. Whenever I see anything remotely chicken related in home stores it always reminds me of you now : )


  6. I *love* turkish delight as well. Whenever my partner's Dad goes over to Turkey, I always get some brought back. It's lovely! xx

  7. I'll start off by sending you love during this hard time for you and your family. xx
    I love reading all the interesting facts about bloggers but yes it is very difficult to think of some. I love Turkish delight too esp the rose ones. Have fun at the concert! He's soooo lovely.

    Now I don't actually do awards anymore due to time issues but thank you so very much anyway and it's been lovely to meet you. I have been awarded many of these type of challenges so perhaps I should just do the facts bit and pass on the rest.

  8. Hope things get better for you soon. xx

  9. Hi Gem, thanks for the award :-)
    Always nice to meet a new bloggy friend :-)

    Sorry to hear your grandad is unwell :-( My nan & grandad are getting on now & I had a big scare with my nan recently, fortunately she is still with us for now, a change in medication has helped her out, but both are in their 80's so trying to cherish every moment we have now!
