I got an Award! :D :D :D

The lovely Julia from Easy Eco to Go has nominated me for a Happy 101 award!
Now onto the rules for accepting the award:

Try to do at least one of them today, and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day.
For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you must link back to my blog.....the last part..only if you want to!
So here are 10 things that make me happy...

My favourite friends :)
My mumFluffy - My Giant African Land Snail, he's incredibly massive, moves v e r y slowly and enjoys baths and showers under the tap - hours of hypnotically slow entertainment!

Stars - I love to see them twinkling in the night sky and I'm so glad I'm living back in the (semi) countryside and can see them again after living in a city for most of last year!

The Seaside - oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea!
Vegan chocolate fudge hedgehog cakes - mum makes me one for my birthday and for christmas every year - THE BEST CAKE IN THE WORLD!
Reading - I know it's a cliche but I do really love getting lost in a good book (my favorites are anything by Jane Austen or Shakespeare, the Harry Potters, His Dark Materials, The Beach, The Slaughterhouse 5, The Handmaids Tale...)

Travelling - getting on a bus with my backpack and my travel buddy and driving miles and miles and miles away to an exciting place to sleep in hostels with millions of crazy, inspiring people and eat lots of new food and learn funny phrases in foreign languages and feel excited and free and happy!
Sofa+blankey+DVD = :D

Dr Who :)
The happy thing I'm going to do today is emailing my best friend, who now lives in Brazil, and send her all my news and all my love :)

Ten lovely blogs that brighten my day are...

Eco Experiment
Blah to Tada
Easy Eco to Go
Kind Over Matter
My Zero Waste
Vegan Lunchbox
Have a happy day everyone :D xxx

That pic of my with the Darlek was taken at the Dr Who Museum (my ex boyfriend took me - him=not impressed lol!) where they have all the old costumes and props and stuff - I may or may not have become over excited!
