Mary of Knit and Sew City Girl kindly tagged me with this blogging award - thank you, Mary! The rules are as follows:
1) put the award on your blog
2) put a link on your blog to the blogger who gave you the award
3) nominate 5 other bloggers
4) leave a comment on their blog notifying them
5) list 5 things you are addicted to
Okey dokey, I tag Julia of Primrose Corner, AnnieB of Overmilkwood, Tess of Driftwood, JuliaB of Marmaladekiss and Joanna of Things Hand Made.
So all that remains is for me to list 5 addictions (please don't judge me :D)
I seriously love potatoes. Always have. I remember everyone laughing at me in French lessons aged 12 when we had to go around the class naming our favourite food and I said 'j'aime les pommes de terre'. Favourite ways with potatoes: dauphinoise, tartiflette, roast, mashed, chipped, sauteed. Definitely no Atkins diet for me!
I tend to get a bit obsessed with listening to the same tracks over and over. Currently in my top 5 playlist are:
Joy Division - Love will tear us apart, Hard-Fi - Going out tonight, Kaiser Chiefs - Never miss a beat, The Smiths - This charming man, Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel - Come up and see me,
I built up a serious book buying habit over the couple of years when I worked at Waterstone's book store - that was a great staff discount. I have a wishlist as long as my arm which features a lot of sewing/knitting books!
4) Double deckers
Not the vehicular variety, but the chocolate bars. My favourite. Can't get enough of them. Chocolate bar genius.
I drink a lot of tea. The more builderish the better - really strong and just a splash of milk. I do like herbal teas and speciality teas too, but it's builders' tea that I really crave.
Back tomorrow with that jewellery roll tutorial - almost done!
