you make my day

I have two very exciting things to write about this morning...and it really has made my day. So here we go:

1. You Make My Day Award |
Firstly I must apologise because I am a little late in acknowledging this award and passing it on. Sorry!! About a month ago the lovely Melanie of Kimono Reincarnate awarded me the 'You Make My Day' Award on her blog. Thank you!! I am very excited and very touched that she thought of me when passing this award along...and it really does make MY day.

The idea behind this award is to pass the award on to 5 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can then pass it on.

I read so many wonderful inspirational blogs...and I wish I could give the award to them all. I would love to give the award to everyone who stops by and reads my little piece of blogland as well, but given that I need to select just five I would like to pass the award on to these people who make my day:

- Bianca of Hollabee
- Lara of Kirin Notebook
- Kaija of Paperiaarre
- Sarah of Little Paper Bird
- Danielle of Of Paper & Thread

2. Tagged |
I've just been tagged by Bianca from Hollabee...which is very exciting as I have never been tagged before :)

Here are the rules (Bianca's version):
1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Follow the four things meme (original version: share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself).
4. Tag four random people (original version: six people) at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

Four jobs I've had:
- waitress at a cafe
- shop assistant at Spotlight
- freelance graphic designer
- manager of a gym

Four movies I can watch over and over:

I guess I've misplaced my brain. Once again I was sure that I'd already left a comment.

(I was at work, renewing loans on the phone, when I got your comment. You definitely made my day! Thank you sweet Amy!)
