Sherry's Award

The wonderful Sherry from If I Could Set My Soul Free has given me this beautiful award!
I love Sherry's blog and consider receiving this award a real honour, thank you Sherry!

The rules of the award are:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you
2. Copy the logo and post it on your blog
3. Link to the person that nominated you
4. Name 7 things about you that no one would really know

OK so this is quite hard as I think I'm pretty open so I'm sorry if my 'secrets' sound dull!

1. I’m scared of clowns; the big red nose, white faced, and crosses for eyes type! My friend had some porcelain ones when we were younger and I used to make her turn them to face the wall so they couldn't ‘look’ at me! Random I know!

2. My job is unusual and may surprise some of you. I am a Signal Incident Manager on London Underground, the only female to have ever done this job! I could bore you stupid but I’ll just say if I’m not in the office writing reports I spend my days (and some nights) jumping off the front of trains or walking down tracks (dodging trains!) and fixing signalling stuff.



3. I want a tattoo on my left foot that says ‘follow your bliss’ I want it to remind myself to only do those things that make me happy. Haven’t got round to actually getting it yet though!

4. I can’t drink, Well I can but I don’t! I am a class A lightweight, 2 glasses of wine and I’m merry, then ill! So I don’t bother very often!

5. I have a pierced navel!

6. I make a short story long! Why say in 10 words what I could say in 110 words? And then I forget what I was talking about! (you may have noticed this!)

I can’t tell jokes – I always get them wrong or forget the punchline


So that's a few little facts about me!

Now I have to pass this award on, as this award is about getting to know people better I thought it would be a good idea to pass it to a few bloggers I have just 'met'!

Hi sweetie! Congratulations on your award!...another 10 days off from work and you'll get the Oscar! Just kidding! You really deserve a million more awards!
It is not so weird the fact of being scared of clowns, many people are scared of statues and dolls too.

Wow. I'll be less rude when sulking about the Tube from now on! I am a DLR commuter at the moment, but we have having an office move in two weeks time and then I will be at the mercy of the Jubilee line...

Wow! thanks so much Kelly, I am very honoured to receive your award it is so sweet of you!

Wow! I love what you do, what an amazing life that must be, all subterranean. One of those jobs no-one takes the time to think about and yet vital to the smooth running of things. I shall think of you next time I venture up to the Smoke!

Love Sarah x

Its lovely to get to know people,your job sounds very interesting - how did you end up doing that I wonder!
I think the challenge you commented on on my blog may be easier to achieve in a rural community without all the temptations of the high street!!?
Have a lovely week.
Warm Wishes,
Cally x

I can indeed confirm for any doubters you are definitely a lightweight who makes a short story long! ;o)

You missed stating the obvious... "and this is disneyworld" ;o)

Sherry said...

My daughter is so scared of clowns too, she has her naval pierced and she has tattoo's. Your job sounds really cool! I've only been on a subway once before...I thought it was pretty neat! You remind me a lot of me. I can't drink much, I end up talking way to much and then forgot what I was originally talking about and I can't tell jokes. Thanks for sharing Kelly! I learned some interesting and fun things about you.
