Today I received an unexpected but lovely surprise. My friend Penny at Creative Overflow gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award.

 The idea is that I tell you ten things about myself that you don't know and pass the award on to 10 blogs I admire. So, here goes:
1. I moved to London when I was eighteen and have been here ever since
2. I have been married over thirteen years
3. My hair is naturally curly
4. I work in a hospice
5. I hate Marmite
6. I love the smell of orange blossom
7. I have published two professional articles
8. I cannot eat scallops or peppers (much to my annoyance!)
9. I have traced some of my family tree back to the 1500s
10. I have never been an inpatient in hospital

Blogs I admire (in no particular order):
